    Hello again all!!!

    This is a commission that a friend of mine, who is a big Atlanta Falcons fan wanted me to do for him. We took the TFP BH Optimus Prime and did a deco of one of their older uniforms.

    Now, I'm not that big into football really. And I know that there are people out there that may not care much for the Falcons. Or the NFL. But you have to admit, he turned out pretty good.

    Now, we didn't really go for a transforming figure. It being an almost full repaint and I'm still pretty new to this we just didn't feel it was necessary. Honestly though, robot mode is what looks better anyways with this mold.

    On the 2nd pic you can see the detail for the uniform in question. And we went with these gloves just for the contrast. This is also my first real try at doing a little modding. I took off the chest claws and also even tried to fill in the screw holes on the left side of the stomach area to fill him out. The feet we just went with what looked good. And the decals are self made.

    Now on to the next project. Thanks for looking. :)

    Looks pretty cool. I would still transform it. It can be the team truck.

    I'd love a Cardinals version of Ultra Magnus. That'd be epic, but, I wouldn't be able to afford a commission like that until I get myself out of the red.

    Which Magnus? The newer one BH or the RiD one? Just wondering...

    That would look good.

    I always thought Cybertron Omega Supreme would make a good Eagles or Raiders custom. He already looks like a football player due to the shoulders and his head just looks a combo between a hat and a visored helmet. :D

    You could also consider it a Nucleon Quest Convoy with more red added onto the figure...

    That said, looks great.

    I second the thought. That would look really good

    Me too. I love the Eagles. Prime would look good in Green. :) 

    I have to say that the colors are really popping on this figure. Maybe do all the NFL teams with this figure.

    Falcons Prime: Just like the real Optimus, you think he's gonna save the day and then he gets his ass kicked and dies.
