[Custom] Transformers: Prime - Autobots

Illustration for article titled [Custom] Transformers: Prime - Autobots

Launched in 2010, Prime was part of the larger "Aligned" continuity family, along with various printed and online media, and two video games (how well these all meshed is open to debate), and is, IMHO, the best Transfomers series since Beast Wars.

I did a lot of work on OP, adding silver and blue detailing to his legs, waist and arms, along with a silver drybrushing of the entire robot mode to simulate wear. I also added Bare Metal foil to his grill, bumpers and running boards in vehicle mode.

Adding to the big guy's firepower are a set of Dr. Wu's Prime Blasters, to which I added sky blue detailing.

To deal with 'Cons up close and personally, Ariel's Customs Prime Upgrade set adds his arm blades (and new stacks for vehicle mode).

And to lay the ultimate smackdown on Megs, or to relay messages from Alpha Trion, is Lord Dragon Master's Star Saber.

Everyone's favorite cantankerous field medic got silver details on his arms, legs, and wheels, and I also painted his "toes". Also added was Reprolabels' rather detailed set of decals.

I did a fair bit on Arcee, adding the pink detailing on her head, arms, legs and front wheel, along with the white stripes on her leg. I also repainted her hands, torso, and vehicle mode seat. I reworked the blaster that came with her, cutting it down and adding a ball joint so it's more screen accurate. Her arm blades came from Ariel's Customs.

I kitbashed a Polarity Gauntlet out of the weapon that came with Cliffjumper, a bit of wire and some glass beads.

I took apart the spinning light up weapon Bulkhead came with, painted the mace, and drilled a hole in his fist. I haven't found a suitable blaster, so I bought a C.L. GR Arms Micron and painted it to match.

I added silver and red details to his head, and painted his arms white. I also redid his knees in black, and painted the vents and exhaust on his quarter panels. Filled the holes in his roof and spoiler, then repainted them. Added Reprolabels' extensive set of decals too.
