Battle Damaged & Weathered Buster Optimus Prime

I took my time to create this latest custom. It is my first battle damaged and weathered look for an Optimus Prime and it took some time to design the various elements.

While not particularly difficult, it takes a light hand to create the authentic weathered look. The entire process is very time-consuming and tedious.

But, I’m really happy with the result and it has inspired me to move forward with a battle damaged version of my custom Power Up Optimus Prime.

      Hi Paul, thanks for your message. I’m not sure if you can buy the cannon alone. It is part of the Buster Prime package. The canon converts from his smokestacks. It is the Takara edition of the ROTF Prime. Hope this helps. J C

    i am from Argentina, I wanted to ask if optimus prime custom buster is for sale and how much it would cost

    • jcsum says:

      No, I do not customize to sell. You need to look for someone who sells customs. There are quite a lot of them 🙂 Thanks.

    how do you customize? I am new and have no idea how but i’d really like to get good so if you have time i’d like to know. Not how to do battle damage. Just wethering and custom painting. Mostly on just Transformers so if you can tell me that’d be great.
