    To begin I would like to say that this is my first kit bashing post. For the past year and a half one of the highlights of my day would be coming to these boards and enjoying all the hard work and dedication you all have shown in your creations! A friend my mine Rodimusblack turned my on to this hobby along with showing me this site. You are all very inspiring, and I hope that my creations will be as appreciated as I find all of yours.

    Today I introduce my first finished work Concept: ALTERNATE UNIVERSE OPTIMUS PRIME. I came up with the idea after looking at my Generations Optimus Prime. I enjoy the mold, but the scaling of the character doesn't fit the rest of the line. After watching the Transformers movie one night I watched the transformation of Hotrod into Rodimus Prime and that got me thinking. What if the Generations Optimus Prime was a grunt in the Cybertronian War before the weight of responsibility of the matrix of leadership was passed to him. Now I don't know much about the War for Cybertron Game, which I know the mold was based off of. So I decided to work off of that "what if" idea and try to create an original Optimus Prime that could be Cybertronian pre-earth contact, along with post interaction with humanity. What follows is the finished product of that "what if". I hope you enjoy! Here is Alternate Universe Optimus Prime in Robot Mode. Alt mode will be posted later along with coming attractions.

    HERE IS THE LINK TO ALT MODE.

    Really nice job. Can't wait to see the alt mode and hopefully its "brute" mode.

    Really nice touch with the light up matrix.

    Really clean paint application and the mold itself suits Prime really well. Great job, for a first time and in general!

    Thanks everyone, I'm just happy to finally show him off, it has been a side project for a while now. To Quantom25 - I'm not sure what you mean by brute mode. If you explain I will try and get you a pic! Also the alt mode is posted for your enjoyment.

    The Energon landmine had a supermode using the trailer portion, I think that's what he's talking about

    ALPHAMAGNUS - Ahhh. To give it the Generations/G1 look and to make it different from the core bot I used, I eliminated the mount points for the supermode accessories. But I do have an upcoming project to reunite this Prime with his trailer/roller.

    That's too bad, but your plans to give Prime his trailer and roller more than makes up for it.
