    this is my version of optimus prime cybertronion mode i built from an old unicron body and mixied it with a 1/24 scale peterbuilt truck. it took about two weeks to complete. as you can see it also transforms and has light gimmick and sounds.

    the trailer was made from a g.i.joe roc vehicle which also transforms into a base/station. also spike and sparkplug were made from the speed racer movie figures

    the bumble bee was made from a ko animated bumble bee and faith leader's orion head

    This is the best (only?) use of the unicron mold outside of stealing his arms and legs for combiners. Incredible work man!

    OMG That is soooo awesome.

    This is one of my dream toys as a kid realized. I ALWAYS..always wanted a GIJOE scale Prime..or any TFs for that matter.

    Great idea..great work..this looks like tons of fun.

    Keep up with the Joe scale stuff! you really did a cool one there!

    I really dig this man, I did not realize it was a Unicron at first. The Bot mode is tight and strangely enough the toes work really well for the mold.

    The ALT mode reminds me of a Armada/G1 hybrid.

    Nicely done.

    Very nice job! This is a use for Unicron I never would have imagined, but you made it work brilliantly. This is one sweet Optimus and that trailer rocks!

    I wouldnt have ever expected this to come from Unicron, and end up looking so good. 9 thumbs up.
