    Battle Damaged Classics Optimus Prime

    Just thought i would share this battle damaged classics prime. I took the classics prime and repainted him to resemble a more of a G1-ish prime. Then i used dry brushing and melting to create the damaged effect. Hope you enjoy!

    Aww, I thought that 'End of the Road Optimus Prime' tied into that awesome custom series made by Jim Saotome. Despite my slight disappointment, I really like how you made him look battle-damaged.

    yeah that was Jin's thing so I think in honour of the guy you got the idea from you should give him a shout out or change the name.

    What they mean is that he was the one to really first start a sort of alternate custom line known as "End Of The Road".

    here are a couple of his pieces.:
