    still a wip, as I still have to paint him up and toss on some small details, but construction wise, he's pretty much done.

    His back story is essentially, when the Decepticons First rose to power, he, not Orion Pax (optimus Prime before he was made into Optimus) was to be the successor to Sentinel Prime, and the next bearer of the Matrix of Leadership... But when Megatron slew Sentinel with his bare hands, This new Prime was to take the fight to Megatron. On the darkest day in Cybertronian history, He was nowhere to be found... He left the planet... Spirited away some would say, while others said he fled in a fit of cowardness, rather than be dealt the same fate as Sentinel before him.
    In Reality, he was sent from Cybertron into the farthest reaches of space by Shockwave, under Megatron's order, as Megatron knew there would be a successor. Is why Megs was so surprised to see Optimus as the new Matrix bearer.
    Millions of years later, after he found what the Great War had done to Cybertron, and its inhabitants, this would-be Prime, has come looking for Megatron. He's not looking for the Matrix... He's not Looking to lead. He doesn't care about the Autobot as back in his age the Autobots were decadent snobs and had a class system that Sentinel supported, giving rise to Megatron and his Decepticons.This Prime would have changed that had he had the chance. He's looking to end Megatron anyway he can, or have his Spark extinguished trying. This will put him at odds with not just the Decepticons, but Optimus Prime, and the newer Autobot ideals that developed during the course of the Great War.

    Would love to see it painted! A different head would be good too as that Firetrap one is so-so on such an impressive body.

    Pretty sweet. nice use of classic g2 megs legs there. His alt mode reminds me a bit of landmine/landshark.

    Nice backstory too. Good work.

    Thanks mate!
    Thanks mate, and will do!
    Soon :) 
    I wanted to make a half-track vehicle that was not an Autobot, or Decepticon, but a jaded vendetta-type character, kinda like a Clint Eastwood in a western. :) 
    Originally I was going to opt him into Guiltar, but I dunno, just changed my mind on it. :)  . His backstory was to support my thinking on the design :) 

    You will soon :) 

    I opted Firetrap's head because of the size and shape, then chopped off and added G2 reveal the shield's Prime's head crest. I wanted him to look kinda like a makeshift Prime, as he was not a Full fledged one.
    Thanks mate, and aye, Guiltar was my first choice, but opted for the "Lost-Prime" direction instead.

    Aye, I noticed the similarities as well. I think it works regardless :) 
    Thanks mate, and thanks everyone!

    Very nice work, very creative. I like the use of parts. There is only a passing similarity to Guiltar but that comparison is to be expected from any custom Prime figure.

    Thanks Mate.
    Well I think I need a few more here and there, I also need to transform him to see any rub issues and paint his side windows.
