    The Arms are a darker clear gloss red. Did a couple layers, it's actually in the previous pics, but the reflection of light off them may have made them less noticeable. I also painted the chest lights a light Orange so they are closer to the movie look and put a gloss coating over them. Yes I painted the head crest outline and added a darker grey on the etched in lines so the inner crest looks deeper and more raised. I also painted Op's eyes a lighter blue and put a high gloss coat on them.

    Yeah, it's been stuck on payment received for about 24 hours so that's why I was worried when I saw TE-01 went out of stock.

    I'm providing cut vinyl stickers to fit yellow forearm accents, silver stripes on the cab, and silver leg vent accents. Took some new pics below with much better lighting.

    I'll be starting up a BST thread for it, but in the meantime PM if interested.

    Someone mentioned a neck mod that makes it better to turn Prime's new head in new angles. Or is that a personal custom?

    What are does window addons on Prime? Were these from the other Masterpiece Optimus Prime?

    That head crest being painted makes you realize he looks just like MP44! That looks great but I am afraid of painting him.

    The neck mod is a personal custom provided by @Snaku . It is indeed awesome work but I prefer my V2 head untouched as I have so much trouble getting one. Also these windows Adonis are from a template provided by @Tekkaman Blade some pages ago. And they indeed look gorgeous.

    Thanks for the tip, though for now I'll stick with him unmodded.

    Unfortunately he's sold out everywhere, but I found him here at TF-Direct. Transform Element TE-01 OP
    Anyone trust these guys?

    I trusted them enough to order a KO MP-36 from them yesterday. They have a very good reputation from my understanding.

    They have two TE-01s left. I think they are the last reputable retailer to have him right now.

    Then I'm glad I made the right choice then. New head is a preorder but I hope that comes soon and the installation isn't too bad.

    Need an LED light up axe, and a Ion Blaster with a Blue color LED and same colored as the gun switch. or is the LED orange-yellow color the correct Ion blaster colors?

    hmm... think about that now.. can I substitute a different plastic piece for the LED switch? something flat? Or should I just paint it??

    It's likely he comes with the new head already. Although they don't specify it, I'd be shocked if the product they have in stock isn't the second batch.

    Is that the shoulder logo that comes with it?

    Nope, I did a face mod. The neck mod was someone else and it involves widening the peg holes under his ears so that the head can move up a few millimeters and then move back down for transformation.

    Ah my bad, I thought he was referring to your mod as a neck mod as yours can look down a bit more than the original thanks to your faceplate being shortened.
