    Good job. It looks far better that way instead of the flames. Are you doing anything with the front windshield? When are the robot mode pics coming?

    Everything really looks sharp man. I hope you can sharpen up some of those photos do really do your work some much-deserved justice.

    Again, great job :thumb

    Nice work as always with your customs; better than factory that's for sure!

    Personally, I don't have a problem with Movie Prime's flames; I think they break up the figure well, so the more "traditional", solid red-silver-blue paint scheme doesn't particularly work for me - however, your paintjob itself is very well done, very clean, great finish :)

    I love how the vehicle mode is detailed, but the bot mode is just a wee-bit underdetailed in comparison. Nice and shiny, though. :thumb

    The holes on the front of the trailer really gnaw at me, but otherwise I like it.

    Nice paint job but you painted the shoulder "pads" silver instead of red.

    The colour really gives the truck mode some punch. The whole fadeout flow and the rich, crisp colour grabs a d00d by the bawls.
