Classics RID Optimus Prime

Postby omega666 » Sat Oct 26, 2013 7:32 pm

So here is my Classics version of the RID fire truck Optimus Prime using the voyager Grapple figure. Basically combining 3 Primes in 1. The RID character with a Classics figure, painted in G1 colors.

I love the figure, you did a great job with giving G1 Prime a fire truck body...

But that's also my biggest gripe, he's too G1, the RID guy was more youthful looking in the face, rounder plating, and for as blocky as Inferno is, I almost find myself looking for the Supermode head more than the basic mode anyway.

Still the coloring is exellent, I wish I could do that good a weathering/fading job, I'm just not sure it catches the RID essence.
