anybody think these two look a little alike?
I've been thinking that ever since i first saw the pics
it also resembles energon prime
There are only so many ways you can make a fire truck.
the only thing that would possibly save this is Cullen and not likely. Sides Cullen is too good for this design.
I wonder if the iconic Optimus Prime alt. mode will become a fire truck, rather than a semi, when all of today's kids grow up in 20 years or so.
The new one doesn't seem to be quite as heavily armed. Guess this Prime fights fires in a little better of a neighborhood.
Actually, from the looks of it I would say he is intended to look like the truck-body of Cybertron Prime melded to the "faux-truck" chest design of Star Convoy.
Which is AWESOME. I mean, c'mon, a Star Convoy homage of all things? That shows they at least did some homework.
I remain cautiously optimistic about this show.
EDIT: Adding a pic of Star Convoy, borrowed from Seibertron.com (hopefully that's not against the rules).
thats where i have seen the headlights!!!!
mines in storage so i didnt recognize it at first
Obviously not. Cybertron Prime has 2 blue flashing lights, while animated prime has 1 red and 1 blue.
(honestly though, it does look a bit like an amalgamation of different primes from the past years, but it does have a definite cybertron feel to it)
I think the Star Convoy resemblance clinches it! That's pretty striking, but I wouldn't have thought of it without you pointing it out.
Now do the same with robot mode and see if that works as well.
Definitely a Star Convoy homage in Animated Prime.
I tell ya, there better be some toy previews for this series at Botcon just to clear up this line of debate.
It's the crew from Teen Titans. If it's not filled with tons of geek culture refs, I'll be surprised. I this case, I very much suspect it was done on purpose and someone there's a big Transformers fan.
I'll go with the STAR CONVOY comparison as opposed to one with Galaxy Convoy (which is no bad thing in my opinion)
I'll go with Star Convoy.
Although there is some deffinate homage with Galaxy Convoy in robot mode. Most noteable is the wheels on the legs, and the blue forearms.
but that could just as easily be applied to the Ginrai toy in super god masterforce.
i'm more intrigued about why they turned prowl into a bike
Star Force Prime!
