    I know this cape was inspired by a comic [​IMG]
    because i've seen a picture of prime with this cape with Megatron (Also with cape) leaning over him. I just wondered what comic it was from

    It was fanart (IIRC) published in the first edition of the Transformers Generations book in Japan. I don't think it was from any actual comic.

    Forget that, why is Megatron's head there!? Is G1 Prime ripping off people's heads now?

    This needs to be said:

    "GIVE ME YOUR FACE!":p 

    That cape...Is it made of velvet? It looks so regal on Optimus, so noble.

    Sorry, but no.

    It's from the Japanese G2 "Story Pages" from comic bonbon magazine, which told the Japanese take on G2. The capes come from part 3 of the story which is a kind of flashback to how they went from G1 to G2; Megatron and Optimus were co-leaders (with the capes) of the Cybertron Alliance and even had a joint faction logo. Things went sour when humans killed Megatrons friend and human ambassador, prompting him to seperate from the joint faction and restart the Decepticon faction, get his new G2 tank body, and declare war on Earth. That caused Prime to get his new body and declare that the Autobots will protect the planet.
