    Could "Project Chimera" Be...

    During BotCon, several cutouts were displayed on the showroom for the MMO Jagex was working on. These cutouts depicted three new character designs we haven't seen before. Two of them were Prowl and Barricade. And of course there was this one:

    While no one is sure who exactly he is supposed to be, there are many striking resemblances to Breakdown. Breakdown was also dissected by MECH with the information being used to initiate "Project Chimera".

    If the character designs end up being used for the show and not just the MMO, could this mystery Transformer be a product of "Project Chimera"?

    Keyword being If since Prowl and Barricade aren't in Prime at this point and it may just be a generic representation of people you fight in game, or a totally other character entirely.

    His mouth is interesting, though...it looks like it's stitched together

    Well they did go out of their way to make official detailed drawings for these characters (not even Cliffjumper got one) and their designs are too unique for them to end up being on the same level as the Eradicons.

    While they may not be planned for anything right now, they're definitely on the table.

    Another possibility for Project: Chimera is
    the Constructicons/Devastator
    Since they did say they were gonna use them, right?

    ^I'd love a source on that, because that'd be awesome to see them in the show.

    From what the Universe guys said, Prowl, Barricade and mystery bot are from the game and won't appear in the show itself anytime soon, if they ever even will. So unless they were lying, Chimera will be something else entirely.

    I'm guessing on Motormaster or Scourge. Maybe even Onslaught, though that's more wishful thinking then actual speculation.

    I think "Project Chimera" could be the Stunticons.

    That would just be excellent. I'm dying for a Prime Menasor.

    I think this character is the other leg of Menasor, I think Breakdown is a leg too, (that tire on the back is the same way Breakdown is configured). Knockout is an arm, Barricade may be the other arm, and I think thats what Starscream was mentioning to Megatron about a key part of their plan. I think "chimera" is mechs............mechs to come. But this is just my theory and opinion and who knows what they will do thats the fun part!

    I'm thinking it could be something similar to Autobot X.

    I'm kinda hoping for Headmasters. Silas would make a good Scorponok. :)

    I think it could be something analogous to pretenders or terminators, humans upgraded with cybertronian cybernetics, something like Circuit Breaker or a grossly malformed monstrosity with parts sticking through skin and such. With that name I would bet dollars to dimes it's somesort of fusion of human tissue and cybertronian living metal.

    This thing is just an example of a custom character that can be made for the MMO. There's a good chance this guy's not going to be in the show.

    I brought this up when that picture first came to light.

    Honestly I think they're lying. It just looks so much like Optimus and Breakdown mixed together, Both of which have already been studied by Mech.

    Wheel placements and arms are similar to Breakdown but the torso seems to have very Optimusey kibble. There's a crest thingy on the head that seems very similar to something on Breakdown. Feet look like a slightly bulkier version of Optimus's.

    Also a Chimera is a mashup of various animals so the name could refer to it taking aspects of both Optimus and Breakdown and merging them into one bot.

    well lets think here, a chimera is a lion with an extra goat head and a snake for a tail, THREE different things all smashed into one so maybe project chimera is a triple changer since it has THREE modes?

    Maybe Project:Chimera is codename for A Tank/Jet/Robot also know as Blitzwing.

    Perhaps it's a human as a headmaster that makes the third part.

    I think Project Chimera will be something like RID Scourge. Part Decepticon, part Optimus Prime, with a human aspect too.
