    He does have one, but it likely comes with Overload, as the mistransformed display at MCM London had a vortex piece that was the same protoype blue color as him.

    Given that theres an os ko of SS05 optimus, can we expect an osko of SS36 or 44? I agree with the recent talk that that trilogy optimus mold is simply too small.

    Scavengers wheels actually DO form the vortex grinder.
    It runs from his mouth down his throat into his stomach and out of his back (approximately where a humans shoulder blades would be).
    So if you imagine overload below Scavenger the wheels almost perfectly in the right place.

    If you don't believe me. Check this video at 3:30

    Overall, vast improvement over what was revealed to us a few weeks back. It’s a darned tootin shame that he doesn’t seem to have sideways neck articulation though

    I must admit, I had doubts about how they would look combined.

    But this looks MUCH better than I expected, and all doubts are now gone!!

    Don't expect any meaningful progress in the near future, but I'm working on an Astrotrain custom inspired by his appearance the comics.

    Was he a triple changer in the comics? Also what figures are you using for this custom?

    Nice paints! Do you find the PuP cannon handle to be a tight fit in his right hand? Mine was too snug that I had to unplug his hand to plug the cannon into it and then plug the hand back onto the forearm. Taking the cannon off was all in reverse!

    I decided to shave down the handle so it wasn't such a chore.

    Yup, he was a Cybertronian train and shuttle, but I'm only doing the shuttle. Base figure is the RotF Voyager Skywarp with reversed legs. The engines are from the Cyberverse Orbital Assault Carrier and they fit right over the ball joints. All I really need now are arms, a head, and fodder pieces for random details.

    Any chance of a wide shot of Prime wearing it with the effects? That's a pretty cool find.
