    Hi All,

    Quick and dirty re-paint of a junker Beast hunters Optimus Prime into Thunderclash.

    I feel Pteraxadon goes really well with him as a battle master partner - what do you think?

    Original for reference:

    I was originally planning to create a partsforming wind-deflector that would cover his chest in Robot mode to give him a bit more of a Thunderclash vibe (and also to hide the paintwork on the chest windows...).

    Still a bit of painting to do before I can add alt-mode pictures, and I'm a little worried about paint wear as the tolerances are very tight for most joints/articulation.

    Cheers!

    Not to shabby, not to shabby... *Furiously looks for used figure to imitate custom*

    Took me a couple of seconds to realize he's not holding a palm tree. :D 

    That aside, he looks pretty cool.

    Nicely done, the Thunderclash paint scheme really suits him.

    *looks at this Thunders, looks back at Beast Hunters Prime that has been sitting on the shelf for a year waiting to be turned into a Thunderclash, sweats nervously*
