    This is the first version I have been working on of this mold. Nothing really innovative, just my take on this one. For this one I wanted to add a few more G1 elements to the FOC design(color scheme and cannon arm), but keep the elements I liked best from FOC and TF: Prime(namely the flight alt mode and red eye respectively). I used Tamiya primer and Testors metallic purple, brushed on some Model Masters silver chrome and Testors purple, detailed with Gundam marker before sealing with Future. I used some epoxy putty to build up the inner legs, which makes him more posable due to the added weight in the lower legs. I left his chest piece clear purple and painted the inside of it silver. I used a kreon piece and the barrel of Optimus's FOC weapon to mod his cannon arm. Added a silver outline faction symbol to his torso, but it doesn't show up too well in these pics. Hope you like it.

    Nice work, it just looks a little too pink for my taste. Love the mod for the gun though, does it still transform?

    Thanks! I think my lighting for these pics may make him look more pinkish than he really is, but he is definitely a very light shade of purple now compared to his original color :lol :
    Yes he still transforms as well. The smaller cannon allows for room for the filled in leg sections in alt mode.

    Love the cannon, but I personally liked the old colors. Still, good work.
