    I love the metallic paintjob, but I'm not keen on the "greasy" look. But that might be just me.

    I *really* dig Xeltecon's custom as well, but this... holy.shit! That's not just the best custom Leader Prime I've seen - that's about the best custom I've ever seen period. That dude who repainted Leader Megs in silvers, blacks & coppers is a close second.

    I agree. The paintjob is fantastic. The details work is impressive. Very nice work.

    Just not a fan of the style used on chrome parts. Looks too much like an airbrushed Halloween mask.

    That's pretty good. I personally don't think that it's "the best" Leader Class Prime custom, but, it is high on the list :thumb .

    There are many things I'd change about it, but still cool.

    I have yet to see a customized movie prime that really is the Mt. Everest of customs. All we see are great repaints and some additional accessories like the sword.

    No one attempted to customize a trailer do something about the head and face or an alternate head with Crab like mouth of Optimus showing.

    I totally love this repaint, actually prefer this over mine! :tongue:  the artistic direction of this work is incredible!
    I wasn't trying to win any fans or anything just wanted a nicer looking, in my opinion tf toy on my shelf :) 

    but I bow down to the master artist of this paint job :D

    I really like the color transitions on his shoulder pads/sleeper top. I don't know why, but that is the best part. just love it in both modes!

    The best movie accurate repaint so far but in overall quality, I think Xeltecon's is better. Would love to see better quality and brighter pictures of this though.
