    Yeah...no evasion here, just a good old G1 kinda thing going on instead. BIG THANKS to SOLRAC333 for his idea which led to me making this faceplate. So easy to do, thanks Juan.

    Anyway, went for lots of detail work here. Hope you find Prime enjoyable :)

    Beautiful! Got any alt-mode pics? I'm curious how the back part of the truck looks with the way you painted the feet.

    HA! Nice. :D 
    He looks great. I haven't tried the face plate on the movie Primes. Cool to see they work here too.

    Was wondering. When you say hand painted, do you mean brushes, airbrushes or spray paints? Also, did you need to do a lot of taping/masking to achieve this?

    THIS is how a movie Prime should look. Perfect mix of G1/Bay. A lot of the customs make me want that character, but this one has inspired me to try it myself. Awesome job.

    I agree with Z, blue toes kinda feel off place, i think if its like the inner square of the toes and leaving the rest gray, would fit better with your approach. I love the faceplate, nose, and LED installment. The overall paint job is excellent, and the fine details are just as good. One of the best repaints i've seen of this figure. Easily one of the top 5 :D

    Not for this one man, I left him action master style. I had a very difficult time trying to transform his arms 'unpainted' and so I can't imagine someone else trying to transform him without have the same issue (unless it's just me, I don't know). I just didn't want his paint to scratch during transformation. But that's why I went with a ton of detail to make up for it :) 

    Thanks guys

    I posted alt pics for most of my recent customs man (Scorponok, FOC Grimlock, and AOE Grimlock). This one doesn't t-form.

    I love the way his blue toes came out, it's a good mix of G1 and Bay style ;) 

    Yeah man, thanks for sharing your idea. I never would've thought of it myself.

    Thanks for your awesome feedback guys!

    Thanks, yeah I think the toes came out perfectly. I don't have an LED installation man but thanks for the input though.

    Nice. I can't believe how awesome this looks. After I saw what you did with the arms I immediately did the same thing. It looks so much better like this.

    I've seen this figure done to death and rarely comment, but that is by far the nicest paintjob on this figure.

    Looks great. Far and away one of the best Prime toys there's ever been on a number of levels, this really makes the most of the details.
