    Finished painting him. Let me know what you guys think! I’ll be posting more pics on my Instagram when I finish the shoot :)

    Looks good! My only suggestion is that those details on the insides of his forearms look a lot like cams connected by a belt, so the "belt" detail should probably be black or dark grey, rather than silver.

    Otherwise he looks killer!

    Good suggestion! I currently don’t have a darker silver color but I was considering an ink wash for a couple of places. However that would make him less playable...

    Looks quite stunning!
    The only nitpick I have is that the section under the chest and the abs looks a bit rough. Maybe either get rid of the red or sharpen the edges a bit.
    But really, great work!

    Do you mean the red on the sides of the abs? That was black on the base figure so it was hard to paint over but I decided I liked the “rubbed off on the corners” look. Unless you mean another part?

    And thanks for the complements!

    Directly under the chest split.

    Oh yeah, that'd be worth cleaning up. That was a last minute decision cause I took a closer look at the concept art but I didn't do it too carefully.

    Jesus, this thing is a perfect looking Optimus. I love the mix of modern aesthetic and classic G1. A shame we won't get a Megatron to match (at least not for a while)

    I really hope that Black Mamba or Wei Jiang releases a KO OS version of this figure.

    Especially if it scales well with the Masterpiece Bumblebee

    I think the backpack gives the illusion of prime having a wide torso when viewed from the front. I hope the 3Ps would address this to bring out his silhouette.

    Yeah, like with Siege Prime, the backpack obscures as otherwise ideal, bodybuilder v-shaped torso. You can cut away the obscuring parts on the Siege version, but we're stuck with the pseudo love handles on this guy. Oh well, still getting him, and he's still going to be my main scale (1:32-1:40) Prime.

    Still a fun figure after having him for a week. While I like having the Marmon truck now I hope we see a larger version of the character with a longer wheel base based on the Frieghtliner used in the movie.

    Megalopolis Toys has him and Rampage in stock but it probably won’t last long! However they used my Instagram image for their “in stock” ad, even though mine is a custom and they didn’t credit me or anything. It’s weird that they didn’t notice...
