    What If... Alpha Bravo was at Autobot City when the Decepticons attacked, instead of Hot Rod?

    *Cue Stan Bush!*
    YOU'VE GOT THE TOUCH!
    "One shall stand, one shall fall!" You know how it goes!

    "You... who are without mercy, now plead for it? I thought you were made of sterner stuff!"
    _MG_9000.jpg

    "No you don't, Megatron!"
    "Out of the way, Alpha Bravo!"

    _MG_9005.jpg

    "FALL! FALL!"
    _MG_9009.jpg

    "Optimus... forgive me!"
    _MG_9012.jpg

    A BIT LATER, FOLLOWING SOME WEIRD AL YANKOVIC AND BAH WEEP GRAH NAH!

    "First Prime, then Ultra Magnus... and now, you!"
    _MG_9014.jpg

    "It's a pity you Autobots die so easily, or I might have a sense of satisfaction! Now..."
    _MG_9015.jpg

    *Cue Stan Bush!*
    YOU'VE GOT THE TOUCH!

    "Arise, Alpha Omega!"
    _MG_9020.jpg

    "This is the end of the road, Galvatron!"
    _MG_9024.jpg

    TIL ALL ARE ONE!
    *Roll credits*

    Alpha Omega is made from an OS KO Alpha Bravo, which comes with the head for Blades. This was almost perfect for the more mature noggin he needed, I just had to sculpt a faceplate to match AB's.

    Aside from that, it was a case of adding a few more paint apps to account for his increased size and premium status, but nothing too drastic. Don't want all that Matrix power going to his head.
    _MG_9028.jpg

    BUT WAIT, you ask! Why isn't it Alpha Prime?

    Well, he's not ready for all that leadership stuff just yet. But he knows a guy who might be interested...

    Thanks for reading, folks!

    What a unique way of presenting a custom figure. Nicely done.

    Very nice. I'm pretty sure Alpha Prime was a canon name from issue 8 of the Dreamwave More than meets the eye series under the heading, Known Primes.

    Cheers! The idea started as a joke in my head, but I couldn't shake it. Pretty happy the way it turned out :D 

    Good job he didn't try to use that name then: we all know what a pain copyright can be when it comes to Transformer names!

    Thanks! I thought it might prove tricky, but it came together quickly with a little milliput/sanding.

    EPILOGUE

    "Sorry boys, I appreciate (some of) you welcoming me into the gang and all, but... well, I'm literally too big to hang out with you now. Say bye to Silverbolt for me."

    "Oh man, I'm gonna miss that guy. Who else can match that bright eyed, eager noob with a gung-ho spirit that he brought to the team...?"

    "HEEYYYYYYY GUYYYYYYS!!! PEW PEW PEW PEW!!!"

    Also some questions: what did you use to sculpt the mouthplate? And also, what is the orange paint you used?

    I used Milliput, an air drying putty. Shaped, sanded and painted with Tamiya Orange X6 paint (had to mix some red in to get the right match).

    UPDATE!

    I was just perusing Alpha Bravo's TFwiki page and I found that his original stock photos had him with blue paint apps on his shoulders like so:
    [​IMG]

    It seem's only fitting that he gain these back again for his evolution into Alpha Omega! (Oh and I remembered to give him his Autobrand, to signify that he is an equal among bots and not just a KO!)

    Ha ha, man that is great! I loved the pics. All of them were just "spot-on perfect"! I love your presentation. Can't wait to show my kids, they love the movie and they'll get a real kick out of this. Thanks ( a lot) for sharing!

    Nice use of the OS KO figure for the "Upgraded" form of Alpha Bravo.

    Pretty neat. But I think it would've gone more like this:

    [Paraphrasing and alternate dimension dialogue included]

    --It's over, Prime...
    ==Never!
    --Mercy, I beg of you...
    ==Something, something... sterner stuff
    >>Oh no you don't, Megatron. PRIME LOOKOUT!
    --Hah-hah, the upper hand is mine again, Prime!
    ... ... ... ...
    ==Uuuuhhh... whacha doing, Megs?
    --Clearly I've taken a hostage to gain leverage.
    ==Buuuuut... Vortex is on your side. Threatening to shoot him means nothing to me. Well, no, it marginally increases the odds of the Autobots winning the day, actually.
    --What, this isn't Vortex, he's grey or blue or something. And this guy has an Autobot badge!
    ==He... he does? That can't be right. Springer is our helicopter guy... apparently. And my report said he was green. Literally... not, not because he was new to Earth. New guy, are you Springer?
    >>What? No, my name is Alpha Bravo.
    ==Who?
    --I'm losing interest, Prime. Can I shoot him or not?
