    Did you paint over the red? It has a different look in the after pics.

    Turned out beautiful, I might pick one up for myself. Buying this one for 4.5x the original price seems a bit much for me though. I thought $90 for the Takara was too much

    This is so beautiful. It captures what I expected from the Takara version. But sadly we got a bad remold.

    Has/Tak puts so much detail into these molds, it's always a shame to see them coming out with almost no paint. Thanks to you, we get to see these molds shine as they were intended to. Great work, I wish I could paint like that.

    That level of detail... reminds me of that wicked Vector Prime you did a long time back.

    Very cool as always, Cheetimus.
    Although I gotta say the bronze-y gold with the deep blue on the legs with the makes me think more of Armada Optimus Prime's Super Mode rather than Powermaster.

    Amazing job and detail. Did you red paint Hi-Q's thighs and arms to match? Then white for the body and head? The biggest reason I want the Takara PMOP is actually Hi-Q. Hasbro dropped the ball on theirs.

    Yup, it's been entirely painted over, except for the stripes.

    Nice work. Looks great and makes me dislike mine just a tad.

    What brush, technique, wizardry do you use to paint those pipes/inner details? I can never make them look that good! Truly a work of art!! :bowdown:

    Man... the degree of detail work. How many hours do you put towards a project like this?

    Yes, that's amazing! Tiny brush and magnifying glass with a lot of light and a steady hand no doubt
