    Hello, all. I can't even remember the last time I did a digibash of a new character. I think the last one was REDLINE's custom bot. Suddenly, out of the blue, I got the urge to make another. So I did. And I've come out of lurking to share it.

    He's a 'bash based on MP Prime, with a HEAVILY reworked (and perhaps impossible) transformation scheme. His alt mode is a Soviet ZIL-131 military truck (cargo variant with modifications for radar equipment). "Building" this thing wasn't easy, but thanks to a wealth of pics and some valuable help/ideas from REDLINE, it was a very fun and rewarding project. I've chosen to dub him "Tyrant".

    Not really sure if this thread belongs here, as it's more a way to present the character than a preview for any actual kitbashing. But since I've always posted my 'bashes here, I figured it was the best spot. In any case, I hope you all enjoy.

    Full credit for the base pic of Prime goes to Remy of TFKenkon.

    And now, back to lurking I go. ;)

    That's pretty amazing. Also, the faceplate is all The Fallen. Is that where the look came from, or just coincidence? Also, I like how it doesn't even resemble Prime anymore with the exception of the antenna and feet. Nice mix of MP Megs and Prime for the head.

    Indeed, The Fallen was the inspiration for his face. I've always been a fan of his look, and the grates also tie in well with his vehicle mode's grille.

    Hound probably would work the best if anyone wanted to really make one (though he'd end up being way out of scale). I chose Prime as the base mainly because the "clean" body shape worked great for tacking stuff on like this.

    Thanks for the comments, all. Your opinions are always very much appreciated. :)

    Okay, so what scale would work? 1/18? Military Humvee, maybe. Some of those model weapons they sell in 1/24 scale?

    Maybe:

    Can't wait to see this come to life.

    Nice design... I like how his helmet design recalls those big furry Russian hats. :) 

    But instead of "Tyrant", shouldn't he call himself "People's Glorious Leader" or something? ;)

    That design could work but a build would have to make compromises. The biggest issue being the large tires. Tires tend to be a real pain in the ass (For me anyways).


    But it makes for a kickass character.
