    I didn't care much for the movie as a whole, but I thought the Ancient Primes were pretty sharp. That was what inspired me to put this together. Starting with the voyager Fallen, I moved the lower arm armor up to the shoulders, added some Gundam Deathscythe wings, lots of styrene, Marvel Legends Mojo hands (dressed up with styrene tubes and putty) and added a lot of mass to his head with a combination of epoxy resins- Mighty Putty to build up mass and then Aves Apoxiesculpt for fine details. The spines are styrene. The staff was made from odds and ends and sticks to his hand with the power of magnets.
    He's almost done sace for a few details that I want to clean up.
    All comments and crits are welcome.
    Thanks

    Thanks Big Hank! These guys had a great look. They've released some of the concept art, but none of the in movie renders yet. I'd love to be able to get a really good look at them.

    Thanks so much guys! Limewire, just pop the wrist armor onto the the shoulders and you're 80% there dude. Then it's just a big head and some spray paint. Nothing you can't do!
    And no. No plans to fill out the Dynasty of Primes. It would be cool, but I don't have that kind of attention span!
    Thanks again everyone!

    Such a wonderful piece of art, Tom. Awesome, awesome job of breathing life into characters that we saw onscreen for a short period of time. Take a bow, my man.
