ROTF Optimus Prime - Round Two!


Here's another ROTF Optimus Prime repainted. I did a little more on certain parts enhancing the mechanical parts as best as I could.

Round three and Nemesis should be just ard the corner now.

ROTF Optimus Prime and Jetfire


As I'm touching up on some of the Neo Protectobots (due to the big move to my new place), I manage to finish two leader class bots (funny eh? it seems small robots are harder to work on than big bots...heh).

Well, here's another funny story...when Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen (ROTF) came out, I saw their new Optimus toy and sooo wanted one. But due to my low funds (recovering from my wedding and moving), I was hoping someone would actually send to me one so I can do some experimental work! Not to mention getting a chance to see how this new Prime works (and transform...hik...).

After many months of frustration seeing no one wanted to do any repaints and some have started their own repaint business (clap...clap...clap), I told myself to just give up on the waiting and do other things... sister in law saw my works...

She bought three primes. 1 to paint as nemesis, another to be upgraded and the other one...

...was for me! WOOHOOOOOOO...

And it didn't stop there! Another pal of mine passed me his Prime and Jetfire! And came another!

Wow...careful for what you wish. It might come true...heh...

So here's the first ROTF Prime and Jetfire that I worked on...

F1400 Starwolf and Starmax Bomber


Here's another update, since there won't be another posting for the whole of next week. And what way to commemorate this is by putting up my most prized collection which I refurbished. I manage to get them a few months ago and seeing their condition...

Yup...same look I got when I bought it. But you can't say much since it has been around for more than 20 years, so that's why I need to do something about it. Armed with enough experience to refurbish a toy, I worked on it for a few weeks...Since it was mine so I didn't have any time limit...and I wanted to make sure it was perfect!

After weeks and a lot of was finally it is....

Ahhhh...the good ol' toys of the 80's. Mind you that some of the 80's produced some lame toys...but Starcom...they produced some of the best! I would love to see them back in the market and I definitely will get them all!

Masterpiece Nemesis Prime


Well, it has been awhile I've worked on any nemesis prime color I was a bit surprised when an ol' client and friend of mine emailed me to ask me to repaint one of his masterpieces. What he passed me was the MP02 Ultra Magnus to repaint it to the nemesis black scheme. I was a bit worried and asked him if he really thought it thru...and he said,'Got 2 more at home, so no worries...'. Whoa....

So got to it when I got home. The colors for this time around I chose flat black. Why? Simple, it looks leaner and meaner...heheheh...

And here is the fella in its prime...hahahaha...

More to come!
