I saw this pic and my first thing i thought:
how could i build them from the fallen?
Is it possible?
those look like THE FALLEN!!!
sure, cause he is one of these first 13!
i wonder that nobody is intrested in!
look at the atached pic, they look NOT similar to the fallen!
ROTF: The Original 13 Primes
Somebody needs to make these!!! I propose buying 13 Fallens, and heavy modding the hell out of them based on the silhouettes provided in the movie.
Frenzy Rumble!? Tony!? Encline!? Jin Saotome!? Anyone!? I would definitely give it a shot if I had the time and money; I am confident in my skills.
Im sure you could use TFTM07 Voyager Megs for one or two and a Stripped down Voyager Optimus but with the silhouettes being to dark for any real detail I think maybe one or two could be modified Fallens I mean you wouldn't want them all based on the same figure (Especially with the dayum spring loaded feet!) lol
Its a sound idea that I thought of as well once I read some of the script and story stuffs a while back. Does the movie only show them in silhouettes? I don't see 13 there so that leaves a lot of interpretation open which will make for some great possibilities.
Yes yes, I realize the movie only shows a handful, but looking at those few, you can see a trend, and just make up your own details for the remaining Primes. And true, you can certainly take parts from other TF figures with very Cybertronian shapes.
Figures I think are ripe for scavenging:
Protoform Optimus and Starscream
ROTF Ravage and Soundwave
ROTF Leader and Voyager Megatron
They are all very Cybertrony.
Oh, and spoiler question:
Isn't Jetfire one of the Original 13?
If so, you can snag parts from him!
Yeah I understand they are all very robotic is all, and seem to have very similarly shaped bodies as the fallen. Should be fun to make up the rest.
I think so, but dont quote me.
Well if the movie follows the book I think so. But I also have to wonder about
the Bi plane character (Ransack?)
as he seemed to be as old as him too.
i postet this idea 2 weeks ago, but noby recognized it. Only one dumb said "they all looks like the fallen" wayne? ;-)
Jetfire and ransack are seekers not primes!
i think it be an awsome idea Limewire!
hopefully after the movie hits there will be more pictures of the other 12.
but id say go for it!
you do awsome kitbashes, especally your movie Protoforms!
I see! Makes sense too. But the reason I asked is because....
See the fine chap on the left? He's got pontoons on his shoulders which kinda look like Jetfire's engines or something. Yes, I realize that's Cybertron mode, but there is the cliche of Cybertron modes looking an awful lot like Earth modes.
Don't think so.
Weren't the other 12 Primes killed by the Fallen?
i guess well have to wait and see if they explain it in the movie
but i went to TFwiki.Net and soo far there are 4 that are known so far,
-Nexus Maximus/Prime(Dont Search name )
to make a Vector Prime wouldnt be too hard, using a Preview Soundwave with a couple of changes Ex. new head removing some "spikes" replacing Ravage Missle, ect.....
as for Prima nd Nexus Maximus/Prime im not sure of yet..
also it explains what happens to them all in the G1 line, not sure if this is what happened to them in Movie, its probly different.
"When Primus first created Cybertron, he created a crew of thirteen living robotic beings to man him. These beings, in imitation of Unicron's transformation abilities, were able to change their forms into the likeness of vehicles, weapons, and machinery. They were the first Transformers and all "Primes". Many of the thirteen died in a cataclysmic first battle with Unicron, where he was sucked down into a black hole and trapped along with his acolyte known as The Fallen, one of the thirteen who had turned against his brothers and joined Unicron. Of those that survived, many abandoned their original functions and were lost to time. Only Vector Prime was known to still be following the path he was set upon by Primus. "
also they name a couple of other "possible" Orginal 13 Primes.
"Possible members are:
The Liege Maximo; he was confirmed in Simon Furman's "Alignment" story as one of the first thirteen, but that story was "unofficial" and of debatable canonicity.
Maccadam; rumor on Cybertron says that he is one of the thirteen and that his bar exists outside regular space-time, linking all realities, though sometimes this rumor is chalked up to the imaginations of the bar's drunken patrons. The story "Prime Spark" from the Transformers Legends anthology confirms half of this rumor, portraying the bar as a multiversal nexus of sorts, though not making any specific revelations about Maccadam himself. The anthology labels all its stories as not being part of mainstream continuity, so its revelations could be viewed as irrelevant.
The Last Autobot; according to the words he spoke "Since Cybertron's Creation, I have slumbered within the planet, awaiting a time long foreseen by your creator, Primus", it can be inferred that he might be one of the thirteen.
Numerous other very ancient Transformers exist—Boltax, steward of the Underbase, and the Keeper, protector of the slumbering Primus—but none have been included in the ranks of the thirteen. "
Well after watching the movie yesterday, jetfire told sam and the gang that there were
7 orginal transformers
Yep. I saw the movie too. And they all look more alike than I thought, so it should be fairly easy by buying
