    MV-01 Leader size WfC Optimus Prime (wip)

    My second tentative for a big repaint in my life (the first was that Nemesis Galaxy Convoy of some years ago that I posted here): I started with a ko oversize (second edition) WfC Optimus Prime and just repainted... there are mistakes but it's been good for me for experience:)  The alt mode is actually possible but I prefer to leave him in botmode. The next edition will be an homage to a toy I love since forever :) 

    In this album there's a lot of pics, from early stages to the semi-final... it's still in progress but just the time to buy some instruments I need to finish him (the rifle for example is absolutely still incomplete) :)

    He looks fantastic. I've wanted to do this for so long now. A leader sized, metallic WFC Prime is on the level of grail for me.

    How does the plastic hold up on that KO? Does it seem to be sturdy?

    Nice work cheem

    paint and details look awesome, if they made a leader KO of megatron to go with i would pick these guys up for my own selfish reasons

    i personally think it would be an epic display if you had both of them painted up in metallics posed leaning inward over that takara primus in planet mode

    aaarrgh I'm waitin' the knock-offers give this size to that mold too (but I would also an ultra size scaled Foc Op version :D  Anyway guys the plastic of this ko is very very good, the second edition Tony is selling is also better than first. Only problem is the mold of some parts (I found two left knees for example :D ) that are been remolded without reason: nothing you can't solve anyway, but it's weird though :D
