Thadeous Prime

This was initially a joke piece I sent to a friend through something we call a "grab bag" where we send random or odd stuff to each other. I went with using another users name from the site and told the stupidest story I could think of through a childrens coloring book. (And yes, it's meant to be retarded, bordering on moronic) For reference, the receiver of this item goes by the name of No Less Than A God as it's key to the final line of the story.

The coloring book

I pretty much shoehorned it into the Next Prime Challenge as Grimmous Prime (Named after Grimace, that purple thing from old McDonalds commercials as the figure turns purple)

The paint used is a chromallusion that makes a drastic shift in colour from gold to purple depending on the angle it is viewed. I used this as a basis for the story of how the Matrix gifted Grimmous Primes skin with the ability to change color to gold to match the natural state of Iacon and then to purple when in Kaon. I added a ton of accessories as a jab at how excessive some third party figures get.
Thadeous comes with:
A Galvatron head that is also sprayed in chromallusion but changes from blue to purple.
A necklace of three seeker heads
A gold crown
Four missiles loaded in the bumper ends.
A matrix of leadership that does clip within the chest
A swordy of doom sprayed in metalcast.
A piece of Iacon that can change color to look like Kaon.
Two double barrel shotguns that fire grenades
A hammer made from a cheap dollarstore claw hammer.
