    Nice. I’ve debated whether to paint it like this or not.

    I've been tempted by this thing for sure, it's only the obsolescence of the mold that held me back. But if they did MP Megs and/or MP44 I wouldn't be able to say no!

    But my absolute ultimate dream figure would be an old school G1 Optimus Prime toy, oversized to this scale and with all the light-up features and premium finish etc

    It wasn't Lewin, but one of the favourite figures in my collection is a 1:18 scale ko of MP Sideswipe. Would love to see more stuff in that scale!

    Years and years ago someone was making OP and UM heads that were radios. Then someone started making bodies for them. They were huge. Anyone remember those?

    I could be tempted to get a Lewin Resources Black Convoy. Why they did a Captain America repaint boggles my mind.

    I'm kicking myself for not picking one of these up when they were more affordable. I'd love to have a prime that scales with my 1/12 figure collection, and to pose with a Masterpiece BW Transmetal Megatron if anyone ever gets around to making one.

    Still no update pics of this 2.0 Lewin Prime yet??? The release of the figure itself is a month out. I am really surprised that no one has shared images of it yet. Really curious to see if it has any different paint apps an how this "dull chrome" turns out. Keeping my fingers crossed that it doesn't look bad.

    I designed and printed my own to scale trailer to go with Lewin Resources Prime. Here is a short video I did a few months ago when I was 3/4 through building it.
