Continuing with my Transformes movie repaints I give you Optimus Prime! He's the voyager class Prime and more streamlined looking than the leader class. Also I like his face-sculpt better because it's actually made up of about five pieces when you unscrew it! This allowed me to detail the rings around the eyes and everything between the face. I painted all his metallic parts black and then drybrushed a mix of steel and armored silver for them, added gloss dark red to sections, painted in all the tiny flames on his upper body, and various other robotic detailing. I redesigned the neck using a Gundam ball-joint, hollowing up inside the head so it fit. Now Prime can look up, down, and tilt his head.

The sword was scratch-built from an orange CD jewel case. I carved out the main sword and then cut the metal cover-sections out of a sheet of Styrene, then apoxie-sculpting them together. The hilt was put together from various parts I had laying around. You can take off Prime's hand and replace it with the sword, just like he had in the movie!

Bright lighting, all my figures look darker close up. I have to set my camera's ISO setting at 200 in order to allow enough light in for detailed shots. Sometimes this makes colors brighter than they should be like Megatron's gold. Makes light colors against dark colors glow, like the eyes of some of the figs too. Pime is dark blue however. Thanks for the replies and take some pics when you're done with the sword, would love to see it!

Cool looking prime. I definitely like the cd-case sword. I'd probably use that idea later. So thanks for sharing that.
Although I really like this prime, somehow I think it's a bit "pale". Was it really intended that way? Or is it just the lightning?
Anyway, it's a very good and clean Prime!
