    This is a figure based on the only two panels of the US comic book(#61 Primal Scream) this character is ever depicted in, he is shown rising from the flesh of primus and holds the matrix of leadership.He is the first transformer and also the first prime. This is a scratchbuild using lego joints from bionicles and knights and panelling with styrene.
    Hope you guys like :)

    It looks spot on which is good. Of course, I doubt he transforms into anything although I guess that wasn't the intention.

    About Prima: he was also shown in flashback in the Generation 2 comic book with a different look:

    I tried to make the guy using the head from energon rodimus and the body of cybertron unicron. I still have him and will finish, if I find a matrix that fits in the chest hole where the guns were and looks right when it's in there.

    The thread's buried in the minor mods and repaints.

    yeah i checked this out but he's not shown with the matrix and looks completely different in the G2 comic so because the other is from the original comics i thought of him being the first and went with him

    I had kind of an interesting idea about Prima. What if, Prima is The Fallen?

    Wouldn't it be tragic if the first transformer was also the first to fall to darkness? If Prima fell early enough, It would explain why there is so little about him/her, even though he/she is the first one, and explain why very few even mention the name Prima.

    that's pretty much how it works in LOTR.
