Years ago I customized Megatron from the Ultimate Battle 2-pack in the Classics line and I left the Optimus from that very same pack in the fodder bin for ages. I never liked that 'swivel' action figure this Optimus had, plus I really hated his altmode (it's supposed to look like a truck, yet it looks like a robot pretending to be a truck). At the same time his botmode looks pretty nice, so I could not bring myself to throw him away completely. Feeling the need to make myself a quick and easy custom I finally took that poor Optimus and started working on him.

First thing I did was to glue his mid section together (disabling his annoying action feature) and after that I just started painting. Lots of blacks, lots of reds and lots of metal. Basically that is the majority of work on this custom.
To differentiate him some more, I gave him this:
- a Decepticon logo on his left shoulder (some decal I had lying around that accidentally had exactly the right size)
- some new smoke stacks (taken from a Hot Wheels truck)
- a sword (made from Aves Apoxie Sculpt, a sword from an unknown line and a paint brush)
- a gun (using a paint brush, Aves Apoxie Sculpt, part of the WFC Megatron gun and parts of an Attacktix Optimus Prime gun)

The figure does still transform, but as stated I don't like his altmode. So I'm keeping him like this. And as the second picture shows I still have ANOTHER one left. Now what shall I do with that Optimus...
Comments (positive and negative) are welcome. I always want to improve!
