    Big Orangutan Hummer....etc.

    I need to do a bit more work on him, but I have some real life projects to tend to. I'd appreciate any comments and crits. He's black, based on the original paintjob of Primal, but I may gray him up a bit. Thanks.

    That's pretty cool man, I don't know if I like the Ratchet head as Primal's but I love the colour scheme. :D

    You should give him a "Mission city zoo" emblem on his doors.

    I like!:D 

    I would paint the arms and the outer legs black, though. Doesn't really look very primaly in grey. (I know what you were going for, though)

    That actually works perfectly. The head actually reminds me of Beat Machines Primal with a Beast Wars paint job.

    Very original, and so good I think everyone should own one.

    I think it could use a splash of red instead of blues... The red stands out on the alt. mode of Primal (on the legs, arms, & around the circle on his chest), and think the alt. of the vehicle could benefit from it as well...

    Just my opinion, take it with a grain of salt! But he could definitely use something to help break up all that black space on the back half of the truck...

    Looks sweet, but it needs a little less white(specifically around the head) and more black gray.

    keep him that way, i still prefer the black originals colors to the gray new more show like toy, plus he has a better head. and the mask lol thus more features.

    so i say keep it black.
    it looks fantastic!

    Thanks for taking the time to comment. I love the head...for some reason it does remind me of the BM O.Primal. I think it needs a bit more work after seeing the pictures. Maximal faction stickers, some detailing...he zoo vehicle is a great idea!

    I'm not a huge BW fan, but I like your approach here as well as your application of your idea. :thumb 

    [btw, if you need a Primal head, PM me; I've got a Universe Primal head to trade :) ]

    Everyone else has already slammed you for the head, so I'm not going to bother with that. A really cool idea I think you should consider is getting the necessary decals to make his alt-mode look like a sort of animal control vehicle. Maybe like a patrol car that would be used in a nature reserve, or a federally-protected forest. I can't think of why a zoo would need a hummer; the one in my city seems just fine with their Jeeps and F-150s.
