    Yeah, I have to agree with [ILoveDinobot], that's an ugly "Optimus".... and where are the arms?

    EDIT: Changed name, I wasn't paying attention... sorry... heheh.

    I think that's an awesome Optimus! Nice, unique take on the character. BTW, his left arm is resting on a telephone pole next to him; his right arm is resting on his hip.

    The head doesn't even look like Prime's.

    Poor choice of a truck. This truck could have been Huffer, but not Optimus.

    I have to say he'd probably make a good Armorhide or G1 Pipes, but Prime? Not so much...

    But still, excellent work they did none the less!

    It's great art. Not sure about it being Optimus though.

    one arm is resting on top of the post and the other is in a "fist resting on hip-A-typical superhero arm pose"

    Whil i agree it's an ugly truck to use, the render itself is very clean and very real looking. Dood did a good job.

    Yeah I guess I could've commented on the art itself... that was kind of rude of me. While I guess I can see the arms now that they've been pointed out, they still aren't all that visible to me, but that's cool. As others have said, the render itself is really good. Just doesn't fit Optimus IMO either... I can get behind many of the other suggestions though... Huffer/Pipes or even Armorhide, before his Cybertron upgrade, heheh.

    I didn't think you were being rude. It's all good. :) 

    I agree they're not that visible. It took me a while to figure out where they were.

    I think Armorhide would be a better fit but the render would have to change to include the cab upside down. huffer/Pipes, not so much.

    Very impressive render indeed. It's nice to see other takes on Prime.

    I'll agree with IACON and suggest that the truck would make a good Huffer...

    It doesn't have arms

    Also the guy who made it is from China and used the Local stylings of trucks there to render it. I think its pretty sweet and liked that he took the local stylings instead of using the same old western style semi.

    Not to mention countless people in the thread over there. Did anyone actually bother to read it?
