    That's kinda cute, and the colors are appropriate and all, I just...I dunno, I don't see the purpose in doing a custom like that. But hey, that's just me. If the dude that made this enjoyed making it, then good for him.

    Well it's an homage of sorts. In the MArvel comics, the first time Primus appeared he looked like a gold Rodimus Prime. Than Takara released a lucky draw Primus, which was simply a gold plated G1 Rodimus Convoy. And now we have a fan repainted Rodimus Convoy turned into Primus yet again. I can see the logic.

    Nice! I like the colors. Plus having a Deluxe Primus is good, the pic shows a perfect reason. :thumb

    That looks great. Now Minicron has someone his own size to fight.

    Like someone said I think the point is definitely to make a deluxe-sized version to fight the deluxe-sized Unicron tank. If Unicron can be a deluxe why not the only other planet-former? The whole gold Rodimus thing is kind of reaching. Looks great.

    No offense, but I can't believe you don't know who that is. It's the Deluxe sized Cybertron Unicron, the one that turns into a tank. I thought this guy was known widspred by now. Anywho.... I would love to get my hands on a copy of that mini Primus there. I might just get a hold of an Energon Rodimus and do it myslef. It might very a little bit in the end, but it will be basically the same thing. Peace out.

    I live in South Dakota, and we tend to get things late, and very few of them when they arrive. Yet, Deluxe Unicron is EVERYWHERE. Peg-warming worse than anything I've ever seen before. I swear, there's three of him to every two of anything else deluxe most places around here. Hopefully I can cook up a cool bash or two and soak up some of the extras so we get more deluxes put out.

    That Rodimus -> Primus bash is pretty cool. I like how some of Primus's leg and foot details translated into painted spots on Rodimus. Good stuff.
