Age of Extinction
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."

Not far behind Slug, we have pictures of the Strafe two pack from the Toys R Us exclusive Evolution Two Pack series. As immediately predicted following Slug's reveal, Strafe comes with the pterosaur Mini-Con mold in G1 Dinobot colors. This seems to indicate that the Energon Swoop mold may go unused, leaving Evolutions Grimlock with no one to unadvisedly combine with. See the pictures below!
Thanks to Instagram user foreverspecialk we have a look at the Optimus Prime and Grimlock promotional display for the Transformers Age of Extintion movie. This massive thing is said to be on the Paramount Lot, we assume that is in Hollywood, California. Read on to see it all after the jump.
Speculation has been high since the reveal of the Grimlock Evolution two pack featuring movie and Energon Grimlock. Today Slug's set has been shown for the first time, and it's probably not what anyone expected! Featuring AOE Deluxe Slug, and a G1 colors version of the triceratops Mini-Con mold representing "classic" Slug. These fit together on a card and may be closer to Deluxe price point, but with no visible changes to Slug it's hard to say whether the demand will be there. See pictures below!
Just in via Italian fan site Ttakon, we have some first looks at the Prime 1 Studio Starscream MMTFM-03 Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen statue. The image scans that came from an unnamed Japan collectors magazine show two shots of the figure with looks at the head and a wider shot showing the torso as well. Read on to see the images for this first look at Prime 1 Studio Starscream MMTFM-03 statue now.
Cinematoday, have posted news and a special edition Japan version of the latest theater trailer for Transformers Age of Extinction, also know as "Transformers / Lost Age" in Japan.
