    For the longest time i've been looking for a good optimus, but all of them have been too big, too small, or not painted enough. (or too expensive) So i said "I'll make my own" grabbed my beast hunter prime and my paint and came out with this beautiful creature. 2017-01-04 (1).png
    the main body was the primary look 2017-01-04 (2).png
    some gold on the inner arms, black windows and some silver and blue here and there

    silver kneecaps

    let's be honest, the green windows were stupid. so instantly black, cut off the gut claws, painted silver and used silver paint and a piece of paper for the mouthplate. held it on though with rubber cement

    i got the second minicon 4 pack from robots in disguise and i didn't know what to do with slipstream. so i renamed him pinpointer and boom instant targetmaster

    personally i think they look good together

    flight mode somewhat influenced by the power surge optimus

    weapon mode

    there will be more customs coming, but until then, i think this is my favorite so far. 2017-01-04 (13).png
