    So I finally took a crack at giving the leader Optimus a little more life. Not exactly the most screen accurate thing around but I wanted to get rid of that dull gray.

    Feedback is appreciated and enjoy.

    Looks superb! Great detailing on the sword and shield. Backpack removal looks accurate.

    Removing the backpack makes a world of a difference! The only thing that still throws me off after the fact is the giant shoulder pads.

    If I never wanted to transform it back I would totally slice down the arm pads to be more movie accurate. It's the one detail I envy on the first edition mold. >.<

    Thank you all for the comments! :D
