Custom of the Week - Revenge of the Fallen Power-Up Prime by frenzy_rumble

By Garage Mod on Tuesday, July 14, 2009



Transformers Garage is on the look out for the best custom / kitbash to feature each week here and in the Transformers Garage Hall of Fame section. This week's featured custom is the Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen Power-Up Optimus Prime by frenzy_rumble.

It's a little more action-packed in this week's custom of the week, as we cannot do the Power-Up justice without showing you the modded versions of Optimus Prime and Jetfire.

Leader Optimus Prime

He tells us that he added some cool extras on the figure's alternate mode including rubber tires, pin striped flames, chromed rear view mirrors, poles up at front bumper, and chromed aluminum exhaust pipes cut with an angle.

He also added some articulated hands, which rotate at the wrists, and gave him some light up blue eyes, thanks to some clear blue tamiya paint on the green bulb.

Guns are from the Transformers: The Movie Optimus Prime (one's flipped) and added some stuff to them cosmetically and internally so they can clip onto his hands.

Keep your eyes peeled for another gallery from "frenzy_rumble," which will feature removable swords.

Leader Jetfire

Jetfire itself has not been modded that help with the overall figure: added very bright LEDs to his turbines; made the arm kibble on his forearms removable (because it's not there in the movie); painted his alt mode flat black, masked off the decals/graphics, then dusted it with a charcoal grey; and modded his hands so the fingers all articulate and move independently.

Power-Up Optimus Prime

Finally, the part you've been waiting for. To help with the actual combination of the figures, "frenzy_rumble" made some modifications. By altering where Jetfire's nose sits on the shoulders and "I think the way they follow the shoulders is a lot more accurate."

He also added some magnetically attached feet on his feets and added some wings. "There are 2 small wings which flair out from behind his wheels on his lower legs, they also clip around and onto the sides... and 2 small wings from the sides of his chest."

Marking the home video release of Age of Extinction, voice actor Peter Cullen committed his hand prints and signature to a tile of concrete at TCL Chinese Theatre.

A member of the 2005 forums spotted an interesting prototype among the special features on the TF4 Blu-Ray. A designer is holding a new Dinobot of some type, and one that very much looks like a new riff on the stylized Animated Grimlock design. Odds are good the Dinobot leader is going to figure into the show released on the heels of Age of Extinction, but the question remains: is this our next Grimlock? Keep reading to see the photo!

For those who prefer their Dinobot leaders in a less warm color profile and their Optimus Primes fully painted, ToysRUs has the set you've been looking for! The Platinum Edition set of the Leader-class figures is now up on ToysRUs' website at a price of $109.99. That stings a bit, but since Leaders go for $45-50 each now it's not as much of a markup as it could be. Especially from ToysRUs. Keep reading for the link!
