    As far as this concept goes, it looks better than the Xovergen design.

    However, I feel for a great classics style PM armor for Prime, it needs to be around the height that City Commander is in, give or take a couple centimeters.

    The more options the better. Especially considering Xovergen's price.

    i hope this one actually gets followed through on,
    sorry ven, i gotta disagree with you on the city commander height. it just wouldnt be powermaster prime if it didnt have the cab as his chest. hope if they do it they have plans for the powermaster partner somehow

    There are ways to keep the cab-chest look, with out making it soo big. :) 

    I'll just wait for the unannounced one. :D

    That actually looks better than the Xovergen one. The Xovergen Powermaster upgrade looks too much like an awkward mix between G1 and Classics. This one looks full out Classics, which I like.

    He's supposed to be big, though. Super Ginrai was the height of a combiner in Masterforce.

    I really dig the concept art. Hopefully the finished product will look just as good. Glad we have some competition for the Xovergen one now. Hopefully we'll get some prototype soon.

    I did this up real fast cuz I had suspicions. It's probably not accurate seeing as this's just a drawing, but I think it gives a gereral idea.

    As much as I love fansproject's work, if the one Venksta's hinting at is really as small as city commander, I'll probably skip it. For the most part, the super mode has always been a way to get a combiner sized robot using only one guy. Xovergen's, we've seen, is as tall as MP-01, and I think that's a perfect size.

    I really want someone to make a Wingblade type armor for Voyager Classic Prime, not a giant Powermaster where the Voyager just ends up as a box in the middle.

    Also, the Powermaster head should unfold into Roller!

    Yes, yes I did forget. I've been caught up in all the FP news lately and buzzing from that.

    Care to share who is venturing in to PM Prime territory next?


    Just my 2cents.

    You mentioned that this 3rd PM Prime will do more with the cab other than turning it in to a box and sticking it in to the PM upgrade. Because two of these are on the way and because this one sounds like it works differently, would it not be advisable for them to hint at it now? The different cab thing will win them a lot of sales but only if people don't spend on the other two first. Food for thought.


    Patience is not a word in the Transfan vocabulary.

    Just to keep track of X-Transbots. They have released a Powerglide, which was repainted into Hothouse, Bad Boy and a Cobra Rattler. Plus they released a set of Devastator upgrades in 2 color variants.

    They have teased what? Cyclonus, Galvatron, Ironhide, Ultra Magnus, Hardhead, Sandstorm, Ratchet, this Optimus Prime? Busy guys. They should make some of them.
