    Autobot Primal is the youngest of the new soldiers sent for training on Earth after the death of most of the Decepticon's that ever mattered (DOTM).
    He is also the prototype for a new sub-line of Autobots, called Maximals, which incorporate the advantages of earth beasts into their robot forms.
    This is of course, not the first time such a thing has been done. The Decepticons had been using physical features and abilities of intergalactic creatures for hundreds of years under the direction of the late Shockwave.
    Primal has the impressive agility, speed, and strength of a gorrilla... if a gorilla was eighteen feet tall. Already he has been noted to show exceptional leadership skills and is often called "Optimus" due to that fact, and his slight likeness to the Autobot leader.
    He trains in advanced swordplay under Sideswipe.

    I've always thought that this mold makes for an awesome Primal. I really like the movie style head adapted to the Primal look! It works well with the body, which has Gorilla proportions to begin with. Your paint scheme is VERY Primal! It really sells this cutom!
    I absolutely LOVE the large Autobot badge on the hood in his alt mode...the only thing missing is a set of swords!
    Great custom!

    Thanks! Its actually the DOTM voyager Optimus head. I shaved some of the face off and resculpted it.

    Ha yeah man, the only set of swords I have that would look right are my actual original Primal swords. I'm not giving those up!

    Didja see I changed the S7 emblem for NEST decals too. :)

    Awesome. Great minds think a like. I just put together something similar in the movieverse. Your execution is WAY better though.

    Thanks guys!
    I should also mention that I used model masters black metallic with sparkle specks in it as an experiment in hope of giving him a static look that gives a minds eye illusion of fur somewhat. I think it worked a little, but only with bright light on him (like in these pics). Actually though, in the pics it kinda makes the robot mode black look spotty. Its really not. Its nice and smooth but a bit sparkly. :) 


    Oh I have lots of swords that fit his hands, but none with the unique shape of Optimus Primal's, or even close to it.
    I will see what I can do though...

    MUNNKY NOT TRUKK!!! LOL

    I have the Gears repaint, and while I thought it was a good figure... so doesn't work as gears. Adding a Prime head and calling him Primal... that's a great reuse methinks.

    Damn... I almost have to. And I should go on and come up with some swords for Primal while I'm at it.
