    UPDATED! Bot mode finished!

    So while browsing the Web, I came across a theory.

    It is a fan theory that Sentinel rebuilds himself (much like megatron did in AoE)
    And becomes Nemesis Prime.
    I doubt it will happen, but I thought it was a cool concept so I took an extra Sentinel that I had and went to work.

    I'm surprised Takara didn't take a chance to do something like this during the DOTM days. Would've been a cool way to get another Nemesis repaint out of someone who isn't Optimus.

    Thank you! It is looking better than I thought it would!

    Yeah, me too. Sentinel already has an evil look to him with all the sharp edges. With a darker color scheme he looks exceptionally wicked!

    I'm surprised nobody has made a Toxitron from the Sentinel Prime mold.

    Thank you! Depending on how the rest of him turns out, I may be selling him on ebay. His legs / ankles are being troublesome.

    Agreed. I was quite surprised that I couldn't find a Nemesis repaint of Sentinel on the Web. It's a pretty good mold that has some awesome potential with repaints. I considered making him Motormaster rather than Nemesis because of this picture:

    But with a Nemesis paint scheme he can also double as Scourge. Just so many possibilites!

    This looks so amazing! Can't wait to see future progress! Really surprised Takara didn't do anything like this. Keep up the great work :thumb

    Update! Still working on his right arm, but I almost have the base coat done! Then the details! I'm trying to figure out the color scheme. I'm thinking of just keeping it simple. Silvers with some gold accents. I am also wondering if I should change his weapons or not... Any thoughts? 20161016_211519.jpg

    Definitely add details to legs and forearms to help break up the black. I'd stick to silver with a few gold highlights to help details pop.

    Definitely keep the sword and shield because they are badass and would look great in this color but I also recommend some guns. Maybe two pistols that he can dual wield.

    It's looking fantastic!

    Sorry everyone for taking so long to finish this guy, but his robot mode is almost done. I will hopefully get updates posted soon!

    What alterations did you make to his face - by the looks of things, you shaved the eye outlines and nose down? It certainly looks more screen-accurate (minus the colours of course).

    Yeah, I shaved his eye sockets down, and then I shaved his antenna parts to be thinner. Then added some indentations in parts to make his head more movie accurate. Good eye, Thank you for noticing, it was quite a bit of work!

    Thank you! Hopefully it won't be to much longer.

    Thank you! You both are in luck, when he is finished I'll be listing him on ebay, so I guess it'll be a race.
