The other two reprolabel sets for Fall of Cybertron Optimus Prime and Shockwave have been applied.
Lets start with Optimus Prime – as I somewhat predicted, the majority of this set is highlighting the many details found on the mold:
The back thrusters were what I was hoping for the most. The small smokestack highlights were tough to apply but a nice touch.
Truck mode is where the majority of the detailing comes into play. From the improved windows, to the headlight, there’s a lot to add.
The wheel highlights are a great improvement as well and of course the rear tail lights.
Now Shockwave gets a little more bang for his buck.
The chest piece adds a brighter appearance and comes with two options, a G1 grid or the in game version, I of course went with G1. You have two options for his eye, yellow or pink. I went with yellow, as G1 Shockwave had a yellow eye.
I don’t love the segmented ‘Con symbols on the wings, but they’re a nice addition to the plain ol’ wings.
Details on vehicle mode are nothing too special. Mainly just highlights and thrusters in the rear, which helps a lot.
So in the end, they aren’t as impressive as the Jazz set, but are well worth it to improve the overall appearance of these guys. I really look forward to the Combaticon sets that I assume reprolables is working on.
Coming up: Piranhacon’s triumphant update!
Edit: I accidentally switched the two pictures of Shockwave – the greyed out version was supposed to be the final shot. Now I’m too lazy to change it.
