Return of the Transformers Hearts Of Steel Optimus Prime Garage Kit

If you've been wondering about the Hearts of Steel (HOS) Optimus Prime garage kit that appeared a couple years ago, it seems there is movement again around this project.

The designer, griffith_76, has been updating his blog with details on the HOS figure. No dates are set for release of at kit at this time, but there is a pre-order up. The un-assembled HOS01 kit starts at $125 USD with a handful of options you can purchase for assembly ($80+ USD) and painting ($80 USD). Check out the complete details now at MONOBLOG.

Customs designer Sabrina has two new HOS Prime's she's completed: a "comic" and "burnt steel" versions for auction on Ebay. According to Sabrina's auction, there is some new information filling in the back story on this toy. The figure / kit originally listed on Rabid Squirrel, has been scaled down from 10 inches to a 6.5 inch figure. Read details on the two figures as follows:
    This first edition set pair of Hearts of Steel Optimus Prime is designed to be modelled after the Hearts of Steel comics as well as my very own rendering of a Hearts of Steel Nemesis Prime. I set out to do up a more realistic impression of a train as opposed to my usual shiny and reflective customs.

    The HOS 01A (red/blue) was dry brushed before using coats of red and blue to get a steely outlook for the his parts. Much of his trailer was shaded before being covered with clear blue.

    HOS 01B (black/gold/teal) was predominantly shaded to achieve his burnt steel look across. His gold was achieved by airbrushing layers of enamels for a richer shade. Both figures were given an anti UV gloss coat for a lasting finish that will retain their colours for many years to come.
