This is the design for my version of Optimus. hopefully to be followed by other characters. Motto: "Hope for change means nothing without action" (shortened in image) Alt Mode: Fire department Brush Truck Weapons/ gadgets: Ion displacer (club which can generate various weapon heads such as hammers, swords, and axes), Scatter-gun (with stasis, freezing, incindiery, armor piercing, and impact cartridges). Grapplers, and various other anti-riot armements. Bio: Was a simple guard of Iacon's archives content to reading of Cybertron's vast history before the war forced him to get involved. Megatron convinced him to let some Decepticons in to retrieve something that was confiscated by some Autobots. In his past naievity, he agreed, and every worker at the archives besides him and Dion died. He then volunteered to the Autobot militia to prevent these same Decepticons from doing any more damage and take them out if necessary. The war pounded every ounce of that former naivity out of him now molding him into a hard, reserved and pessimistic captain while still retaining his idealistic outlook. He eventually became a Prime himself, and is now leading a crew of his own to capture the recently resurfaced Megatron before he can ruin any other planet. Strengthes- Optimus' greatest asset is definitely his tactical mind. He can create complex yet sound plans even in the middle of the chaos and discord of the battlefield. His plans may seem crazy at first, but as he often says; "sometimes crazy works". Weaknesses- However, he is horribly shortsighted in his mission. He's still the same protectobot on the beat at heart; he just wants wants to help everyone and is sometimes unwilling to look at the big picture or make the big decisions. He also has a habit of doing things on his own; he'll help any member of is new crew with any problem, but he won't let them help him with his.
