    This is a WIP but I finally got a little time in my schedule so I decided to try my hand at customizing! I used Cyber Commander Optimus as a base and thought with some small touch ups he'd be a cool Pyro. i used paint markers for everything. need to apply more paint and clear coat. I also want to add proper stripes but figured first pass would be best to use molded detail to guide me. 20161207_211624.jpg 20161207_211630.jpg

    Thank you! I figured the Cyber Battalion figures would be a good start for customizing. I was anticipating an easy disassembly but a lot more pieces are pinned in than I expected so I didn't feel comfortable using spray paint. After I finish up Pyro I want to take a crack at Cyber Battalion Starscream and paint him at Hotlink or Bitstream. That one I need to figure out how to remove the pins for.

    Not bad.

    This is pretty nice for a first attempt.

    Thank you! I'll update it in a week or so once I have some finished pictures, but figured I'd share to show that you can make some surprisingly decent stuff when you jump right in to the hobby!

    Thank you! Have any suggestions for a fitting gun and cannon? If I can find something cheap that fits him it would be great. He is a big boy.

    The tr chromosome gun would work fairly well with a bit of modding.

    Agreed. The different shapes in the torso lend themselves to Pyro more than Optimus.
    All he needs are his weapons! Might I suggest the rotating cannon from movie voyager Ironhide?

    While it's smaller than yours that your working on. I found this one on here last year and decided to work on it. I got side tracked and I'm almost done.

    But I attached a picture of the one I found that inspired me to make him.
