    I wasn't digging the "safety cone" color of Titans Return Sentinel Prime and decided to try the supposed scratch-resistant Krylon spray-paint.

    Sentinel has a unique transformation cog that gives him access to the wisdom of the Primes. His body is the avatar for the Prime being summoned. Unfortunately for his fellow Autobots the selection for Primes is unpredictable. When the Primes, or any Prime, refuses to cooperate they leave the body without a head.

    1) Sentinel Prime (Sunbow cartoon) w/ Dion

    2) Sentinel Maximus (OTFCC 2004 exclusive) w/ Hyperlinq

    3) Sentinel Zeta (WFC videogame) w/Rhinox

    Thanks for checking it out and if you have any suggestions let me know.

    I dig it! The blue and orange is super distinctive and the fan alt mode is clever. Does it roll at all?

    If you haven't attached the cockpit yet, can I suggest using a head from a spare titan or prime master to connect the cockpit to the vehicle mode?

    Paint work is really well done! I'm impressed that's krylon. Did it go on thick?

    Wow, the blue really brings out the detail of this mold. Kind of wish I picked on up now. Excellent work.

    Thanks. I wish it rolled in that mode but it doesn't in the traditional sense. The wheels are facing upward (behind the knees) and the center wheel is under the navel of the robot mode.

    Not at all. It dries to the touch in 20mins so I did multiple sprays to get a consistent color. Most parts are glossy and smooth but there are some areas where maybe I was too close-- it has a slight "orange peel" texture in a few spots.

    I've transformed him multiple times already (and I'll post more pics later) but so far the only paint that has scraped a little is the silver from his hands and a bit of blue by the knees (it connects under the forearm during transformation into a train).

    I'm not sure what you mean. For the fan made alt-mode?

    Can’t you rotate at the thighs to get them facing down?

    That is incredible. With the Ptero head, he looks like the perfect modern update to him from the cartoon.

    No, it looks like it can rotate but it can only move the knee 90degress.
