    ok haven't nailed his bio down completely yet but here is soem basics

    Sigma Prime, one of teh original 13 transformers. His last action was to partner with Vector Prime and giving his life to become the core of teh supercomputer Vector Sigma.

    I am still working on some additions to the flightpack/weapons pack and then he will be handed off to one who has significantly more painting tallents than I for finishing.

    Well, it's a neat idea and all, flightpack for Masterpiece Prime, yes, but I don't see how that makes him a different character. Are you going to alter the alt mode at all?

    yeah I am working on something for that as well, he'll be reapinted as well. Its more than painting him black or white and calling him something different. :)

    Nice work. I was planning on using that same name for a custom, but I'm still going to use it. I've had that name chosen for a custom for a long time now, so I'm not going to throw it away now. Peace out.

    The white part of the backpack looks like it was assembled using sheet styrene. The massive BFG and the rest of the backpack are from a GIJoe Sigma 6 figure ("Sigma Strike" Duke, or something to that effect).

    And holy hell is that gun ever big. It looks big even for Prime. And it belongs to a figure 2/3rds his height.

    ok here is the very beginning, of of the alt mode modifications. It will be a removable "trailer type" rear end. In the beginning Prime was a Flatbed :)

    and I think I am going to try to integrate the backpack into the trailer something a little like this. looks like he will be a pretty bulky mama jamma in alt mode. got any ideas on how I might make it hallen?

    Wow, that is really cool. I'd love to have a backpack unit like that so I could add that gun/jetpack to my Prime. Any plans to repro the part once you're done with kitbash?

    I honestly have no aptitude or knowledge of how to make repros of a custom piece. sorry. But thanks for teh compliments. here are two additional mords. I took a nod to the gundam playbook and attatched the gun to teh pack for storage, and I have begun bulking up his shoulders. its a rough proto but I am very interested in feedback on the shoulder pads. thanks

    Turning out good. I think this is going to end up pretty kick ass. What are you planning to get more detail into the custom parts?
