    I was going through some of my old custom figures today, and I found a bat Optimus Primal that I painted up many years ago to match his show colors. I thought it would be fun to refresh the paint and give new life to an old custom.

    Is this a KO? I don't remember the figure being that big.

    Beware the Batimus Prime streets of Gotham! Cool I like it. Much better than the boring original colours

    I like this! I wonder if there is a small Prime head that could be swapped to good effect.

    i can't think of any op head that small other than ths which would have to be cast, robot hero's which you could hollow out, or to keep with the beast theme optimus minor.

    it looks great btw.

    RM Prime is pretty small and there are several KO's. I like it either way, just throwing the idea out there. HBS Convoy as well, but I don't think there are too many of their heads floating around:)

    Damn! That looks really great! The Primal colors sure fit in Batimus mold and even looks cooler! :D  Care to do a purple Croc MEgatron? ^^

    Thank you everyone on the compliments, I really appreciate it. I didn't expect this much of a response for him. I also have a Optimal Optimus that I painted in a similar fashion that I will need to dig out and touch up now as well :)

    With that paint job, I can see what idea Has/Ken had with the concept of making Primal a triple changer. Improves the bat figure a bunch!

    Thanks :)  Did they do any concept drawings of that triple changer? It would have been cool to have seen Primal as a Bat on the show.
