    So I had a previous thread on this guy but I've re-done a ton of stuff and figured I might as well open a new thread since he's pretty much built now...just needs paint.

    Anyway, this used to be that voyager class Ultimate Optimus Prime (DOTM) figure but I swapped in, built, and modified all kinds of parts (new head, new shoulders, elbows, forearms, hands, waist section, back, thighs, shins, lower leg sides, feet, and helmet.

    I also gave him a modded sword and he'll come with a BFG too. I aslo gave him an articulated waist - 45 degree twists though...

    Anyway, here he is...He'll be painted up Modern-G1 style with some damage effects although subtle, and maybe some glow effects...not sure...

    Another Update - He is all painted up!! - Unfiltered pics tomorrow :D

    Update: 01/06/2013


    Well, re-worked some of his parts yet again and then primed, edge lined the parts that will be black, and painted his face. I cut up the DOTM Ultimate Prime trailer and will be using a bunch of parts of the trailer parts to be painted and then added onto this Motormaster as to incorporate his trailer into his body :) , stay tuned...

    Update: 01/2013

    Different approach at legs now, more solid build and more in sync with the overall look now I think :)

    This is awesome. I love, be it intentional or non, the skull I can't help but see in the torso(window eyes and shock like teeth) but the the head, or face if you will, throws me. It's not mean or bad ass enough. I just think that the rest screams I'll rip out your optics so the head should too.
