    Update: Painted pictures uploaded!

    This is my Thunder Clash add-on kit for Battle Core Optimus Prime - I really liked the Reprolabel set and I decided to add some additional firepower to the Cannon Master.

    The kit contains a new head sculpt, set of arm cannons and a backpack that serves as a turret in truck mode. A pair of shoulder panels are optional.

    I am also planning his "big gun" and stage II of the arm cannons (can't have enough of them ya?)

    The turret/backpack is designed to fit snugly over Optimus's combiner head - so I don't think this will fit on Motormaster.

    Back view of the backpack - the two cannons are attached using c-joints and they are very tight with WSF.

    [​IMG]

    Truck mode: I must confess that the two arm cannons does NOT fit tightly on the roof. But in final product I added two tabs on each side of the turret so you can attach all four of them in truck mode.

    I am really happy with this set, put a lot of thoughts to the details too. Hope you'll enjoy it. Thanks!

    Looks nice. :)  Think you may do a Machine Wars Optimus Prime version of this?

    Are these going to be split so you don't have to buy the head? I already have the Renderform one.

    Also what's the Combined mode storage like?

    I've been brainstorming ways to kitbash cannons for my custom Thunderclash, but yours are a lot better. Bah, if only 3D printing technology was better though. Drives me nuts with all the cool designs people come up with.

    I have been toying with the idea, it is possible if I make a pivoting roof, but need to make sure it transforms

    Very nice indeed.

    As for the chest panel: c'mon, you know you want to.
