    Man... I hate Beast Wars. Everything about it. I think my good friend and commissioner of this project knew that and MADE me do this for him. LOL!

    On a serious note, I love this figure and I LOVED working on it. The commissioner asked me to do a NEMESIS PRIMAL version of the Transformers Beast Wars Optimus Primal figure.... this figure has multiple modifications given to him, most notably the complete restructuring and grafting of a Spawn "Cy-Gor" Gorilla head onto the existing Primal frame. He also have fully 3D printed hands that were derived from the MP-01 figure. He was given a complete paint job with the robotic parts being chrome and glossy and the organic parts being matte finish. He has a high intensity red LED installed in his head to make the eyes glow. As much as I liked doing this figure.... I hope to never touch another Beast Wars figure. LOL!

    I'm not really seeing the 'Nemesis' aspect of the figure. To me, it looks like a really, really good version of Optimus Primal with a cool new monkey head and superb paint apps.

    Yeah ^ I really agree, I think it could have served with a whole ne wbody color, Or at least maybe a midnight black/blue with red stains.

    Regardless it's a gorgeous figure and I love it's paintwork to death!

    I like what you've done with it- the high gloss on the robot bits really highlights the separation between beast & bot. The glowing eyes look badass too :)

    My thoughts exactly.

    Fantastic paint job and LED use... not sure how it's Nemesis.

    Oh damn, that's awesome. Makes me think of Primal from the Beast Wars episode Gorilla Warfare. Incredible work!

    The teal and turquoise. With the black helmet and red eyes. Pretty much is nemesis.
    Clean apps and a great job putting cygors face on this body.

    I'm not a huge fan of Beast Wars either, I think I watched the cartoon once for about 5 minutes and was totally disinterested. This however is quite nice, excellent work once again amigo!

    This. Nemesis is very apparent... Primal doesn't have any teal, and all the teal here would be red. Also, that helmet...

    Giving a show a chance is watching a few episodes... you clearly never gave it a chance, probably because you already made your mind up about it.

    the paint work on this is absolutely fantastic! it really brings this figure to life! everything is super clean, the gloss robotic parts really do highlight the difference and make it look awesome and the transition from black to dark grey on the fur is especially nice and makes it look that much more realistic to me. Great job!

    for those not at all familiar with the beast wars series I can see how it would be difficult to pick up on the nemesis-ness. However at second glance it becomes obvious. The teal, the black helmet, and, the biggest giveaway of all, the scratched out maximal insignia on the robot chest.
