    Below I added a pic of what this Optimus Primal looks like. It was a concept TM Optimus Primal drawn by a talented artist. I think a TM2 Tiger hawk body with maybe with BW neo magmatrons dino legs for the robot legs?? It'd have to be recasted bigger though. Anyone think its possible to do?

    *Disclaimer: I did not draw this drawing, and I am not trying to pass it off as my own. If I knew who did the drawing, I would gladly post proper ownership of the drawing.*

    anything's possible, but i don't think you could make this exactly how it looks in the picture. one mode or the other would have to be without certain aspects in order for the figure to be transfomed properly

    Gorilla/Eagle Fuzor. Could probably use the original Primal as a base figure, wings (and...?) from a Tigerhawk... it wouldn't be exact, but it could be very close.

    Haha, always chuckle when I see that pic or any of the other TM concepts (Tigertron, BA, Scorponok), not my art, but a cropped version of the photo I took many moons ago (BotCon 98, I think).

    They were great pieces of art, and I knew I had to save them for my own records (hence the picture taking ;) ), but it's amusing to see my cuddy photos have become part of the "fabric of the Internet" as I like to say :)

    That's probably about as good as it gets photo-wise, my camera skills were not so hot at that point.

    You're off to an amazing start though!
