    update : Added new pictures and led light to the back of the wings.

    A lot of times magnus is done out of the optimus mold , so this time I decided to create optimus out of magnus for a change, added a jetpack too, fully transformable. All is still in progress just wanted to show you all how cool it looks so far. Im working on NOVA prime and a nemesis prime using this mold, and maybe an onslaught too. thank you for looking

    I was thinking of something similar when I saw the figure on the frontpage today. Really nice work - I'm looking forward to doing this myself too. :)

    I'd love to see Hasbro's reaction to this. I love it.

    Excellent job!

    In all seriousness, this is the best iteration of Optimus Prime in toy-form of any universe since the godly birth of ROTF leader class Optimus and Galaxy Convoy.

    What I really love about this is that he actually looks "pan-universe" if there's such a word. He looks like he'll fit in with the aesthetics of the IDW comics, TFP, WFC/FOC, or even the movieverse.

    If Hasbro actually made a toy of this, I'd kill to own one.

    Two questions: Is the neck of the toy ball-jointed? Which Optimus toy's head did you use, BTW?

    It looks like the Kre-O Optimus head.

    Thank you for the kind words , I feel the same way I really like this mold for Optimus . As for the head it's actually a kreo deluxe Optimus head and it on a ball joint fits perfect and doesn't affect alt mode .

    That came out really well. I'm getting an Orion Pax vibe from him. I think he'd look even better with maskless face.
    Great work nonetheless.

    I really love the basic idea of this. I'm getting a Powermaster and God Ginrai vibe. Give him a pair of dual shoulder cannons and you have Powermaster Prime. Add the Wings and you have God Ginrai. I wish I could do this...

    Are you planning on incorporating the wings in the Alt mode? I can't wait to see this finished. Lovely.

    Looks great. Good eye. Reminds me a bit of Galaxy Force/Cybertron Prime.

    Upon further inspection, the combination of the Classics head and Prime body lends itself well to the Transtech aesthetic.
