    Back when the news of the new Transformers series started to come out we heard how Optimus Prime would be portrayed as a younger, less experienced leader. Now while the new show's designs have been shown I still couldn't resist the idea of creating a new Optimus.

    So my take would have to be considered from a yet unseen Transformers universe. I ended up referring to this series as FF when I saved the art files to keep them separate. "FF" standing for Full-Force, thus the name Transformers: Full-Force Optimus.

    The main ideas I wanted to play up was that this was a young Optimus (not Orion Pax, for those of you in the know). This was an Optimus before he became Prime. Not as brash as say, a Hot Rod type, but still a quicker, more dynamic, perhaps even a bit more ruthless then his more aged counterpart.

    The vehicle mode is a four-wheeled Cybertronian car of sorts (yes four wheels, the front two in a row and two separate ones in the back).

    I also wanted to play with the colors a bit. More darks, more red in places that are usually blue on Op (like the head and legs). Overall I didn't want him to look like any other Op out there, but still evoke a Optimus feel on some level.

    Also the whole idea started with me just wanting to put his smoke stacks in a strange place. :p 

    I even sketched up a TF:Animated style one for fun.

    Check out my DA page (link below) if you want to see any of the pics larger!

    I sooooo much like your design better than the TF Animated pic that was floating around.
    I don't know about the handicapped accessible safety bars on his chest though. It makes it way too easy for Megatron to grab him and throw him.

    Hmm, I like this, this could work for a series, but that would require acknowledgement of an adult audience. oh well.

    Not only far better than what's actually going to be in the show, that's one of the most original things I've seen on this board thus far. Awesome stuff man!

    That sure is sexy. =) If you have any more from this concept somewhere in your brain I'd be very interested seeing them on paper.

    Keep up the good work. =)
