Hearts of Steel: Optimus Prime

Now on ebay!!!

Reviewed by Action Figure Customs

Well, I'm not sure where to start but credit has to be given to griffith_76 for taking up this project. Many of you would probably be familiar with models of the old 10 inch figure that was designed by griffith_76 quite awhile back. However due to the complexity and prohibitively expensive costs of production, the project was relooked by griffith_76 and shrunk down to a 6.5 inch as it was less complex and more affordable for the masses.

Not to be forgotten is Mr Guido Guidi for his amazing artwork in the Hearts of Steel series.

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.
