    A little bit ago, G4TV and Jumpcut held a contest allowing fans to remix select Transformers clips for a chance to win several prizes. 2005 Boards Member James Zahn was the lucky grand prize winner for his entry Megatron’s True Motivation.

    Check out the original contest page and video here: TRANSFORMERS VIDEOBOT CONTEST

    What he won was a true one of a kind piece, a custom CHROMED Transformers Movie Optimus Prime, done by the Hasbro Design team specifically for him. Included were 2 versions (robot and vehicle forms) with a custom base and case.

    James has sent us some images he took along with Hasbro's official pics of the piece. You can check them out here:

    Gallery -> Optimus Prime - G4 Contest Chrome Edition

    Congratulations to James, and thanks to G4, Jumpcut and Hasbro for giving fans the opportunity to win such a cool item.

    Enjoy!

    The prize is cool... but he work that won it ... not so much. Were the other submissions just pure horrible? It was not very entertaining at all. Just my opinion.... sorry.

    Damn! They need to do one like that in movie colors rather than G1. it'd sell like hotcakes even if it cost 10 more dollars.

    Oh, weird, I thought this video was gonna be that bizarre one from a while back (might have been a music video) that had a bot that looked like Megs at a discoteque and a bot that resembles Prime steals his woman (thread was titled something along the lines of "Megatron's True Motivation"). Guess not...(yeah, that didn't sound crazy at all, lol). Nice vid, though, man!

    It's a bad day to be a Prime collector, eh? Can this now be considered to be the rarest TF piece ever officially created by Hasbro/Takara or am I off?

    Ditto. James, you are so lucky to have these awesome Transformers. They are a true work of art. Now if there was only a Leader Megatron like it.If only Hasbro would do another in movie colors for a mass release. Too bad we can only dream of it.

    That is too beautiful for words!

    This also answers my questions what this figure would look like with G1 colours.

    Congrats!

    Thanks everyone. I thought the pictures needed to be shared. I'm still surprised the Hasbro pics didn't "leak" out at some point. They did a good job of keeping it under-wraps.
