Finally. Been busier than it looks, but got the chance tonight to take some pics of Power-Up Prime. In the future, I hope to build a concept art accurate (non-transforming) LED galore Power-Up Prime, however this one here is composed of the following ROTF Leader figures:

In addition, I made some modifications to the combination. Jetfire's nose sits in the shoulders (they actually wedge in nicely) and are (still) detached from his forearms) I think the way they follow the shoulders is a lot more accurate. Looking at the art, he's got some big big toes/feet, so I added some magnetically attached feets on his feets. 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.

Wait until you see his arsenal of weapons.....

I dig the BFG's made of Energon Shockblast's arm. They surprisingly fit well into the movie aesthetic. I also just dig this piece of art in general. Awesome paint job, great work, as always... :up:
