    I have in line:

    Jewish Prime-complete with curly spring sidebrurns
    Mexican Prime(complete with sombrero, tequila bottle, poncho & soccor ball)
    Italian Prime(same colors as Mexican Prime, and will include soccor ball)
    French Prime(with wine and cheese)
    I will complete these first and figure out more later!!
    OKAY, THANKS TO LUKE4 AND GIGA LEO!!

    I will now be adding CROATIAN and SHAFT PRIME!!!!


    But seriously, I want to get some feedback on these ideas. Would they be to offensive or would they be really cool unique pieces. I don't want to be offending the whole world? Or do I...No news is bad news!!!!



    Remember, these are not to be offensive, but to just be unique and fun!!!!

    rofl. you are kidding? haha.
    seriously, some of these ideas would not only offend those of these elasticities on this board for the ideas, but when you put something like "Jewish Prime" on ebay, I think you're going to get a few people just a little pissed off.

    I just blew about 64 ounces of Diet Coke out of my nose onto the screen. Thanks for that.

    Italiano Prime all the way! Big gold chain with an Italian bullhorn on it! LOL!

    Too bad BB isn't an IROC!

    Seriously? Offend people? I am sure I would. HAHAH. But these would be done in a tackful and respectful way.

    I know tons of Jews, Mexicans, and Italians. They have a great sense of humor. Besides, I have seen so many references to Prime being Jewish!!!!!

    I think it would be great!!!

    I'm offended, how can you propose all those Primes and not do Shaft Convoy, complete with detachable afro, shades, tinted windows, and two Arcees to rev his engine with.

    The springysideburns would need to go, as that's more a religious aspect than cultural, which i assume is more what you're going for. Go for bagels though!

    Being Italian, I proppose the name Pastamus Primevera, AKA Guido Prime!

    Also may I suggest Loxtimus Prime for our Hebrew freinds.

    South of the border we have special agent Dirty Sanchez Prime, and of course the Frech Prime will be known simply as Frog Bastid.

    I Keed!! I keeeeD!!!:thumbs2:

    I can see how people can get offended by these. But then I think about G-Gundam and the nation Gundams. America Gundam had boxing glove hands, football helmet, and a skateboard.

    It basically the same premise. Or to be safe just repaint them in the national colors or a motif. That would be sweet. American Optimus with a huge flag that goes off the truck front and cab and goes up on to the trailer. And when in bot mode the flag would still be visible on some panels.

    Dammit now I want that lol.

    Instead of ethnic, call them Stereotype Primes. That way you're acknowledging that they may be offensive, and that you're in on the joke.

    I think doing something more along the lines of this would maybe go over a bit better. With things like this, you just gotta be careful. Personally, I wouldn't really have much of an interest in taking just Prime, though.

    One of the things I've done with my customs is that I've taken my police cars and split them up regionally. I have a US police force and a Japanese police force. I have a Decepticon squad from both Korea and China, but their faction has less to do with their nationality and more to do with Decepticons choosing those particular disguises.

    Anyways, I think it's good that you're talking this out first :)

    See, the way I see it like this.

    Living in Dominican Republic I have met tons of people from around the world. I think most people would love it. For those that get offended....they are probably not the person looking at custom transformers. They are the ones that would be offended at anything!!!!
    This would be like a celabration of cultures and an icon (optimus prime).
