    I'm going to use the Cybertron tank Unicron for the body, and currently plan to use an Energon Rodimus(Checkpoint) for the head.

    I've already have the head, and started to paint it.

    I'm presently waiting for the unicron to show up.

    What I'm basing my interpretation on is here.

    The picture attached is digibash of how I intend it to look(minus the head I plan to use)


    For those who don't know, Prima is supposed to be the first Transformer and the first to have the matrix. He is a bit overlooked, We have Nova and Sentinel Prime, but no Prima. So I thought I would try to do him.

    The Unicron body is the closest I found to the pictures I saw. the matix is going to be where the gun doors are on unicron.

    I currently plan to use the head of checkpoint but am open to other suggestions.

    I don't have any suggestions, but I think that someone making Prima is an awesome idea. Just keep us updated on the progress, weltdav.

    I've uploaded a couple progress pics. One of the canon I'm going to use as Prima's gun and a close up of the head I'm using.

    The canon is a zoid custom part. The peg on the canon, is from a knock off gestalt foot stand I got with some junk parts I bought a couple years back from TFmaster.

    I apologize for not having any body pictures as I'm still waiting for my cybertron unicron. (If I thought of this project two years ago, it wouldn't be a problem)

    My Unicron came over the weekend, and as you can now see he is headless and spineless.

    Unicron's fist can hold the cannon like how the '84 Optimus can hold his gun, but the cannon fits fine in the leg holes.

    Prima's head has a neck ball now. I cut off of checkpoint.

    If you know how to get the small shoulder gun and the white thing that had the missile launcher off without cutting up the figure, feel free to send me a message.

    Painting part 1 done.

    Painting part 2 will be the cannon, white parts, and the small pyrple* areas. The cannon will be black, the white parts I'm thinking of using steel silver, and I'm not sure about the pyrple* areas.

    Painting part 3 will be touch ups and screwing down anything that got screwed up



    *the first was a spelling mistake, the second was deliberate, because I thought it looked better than purple
