Here is something that we thought was cool and we hope you do too. Alex Milne has posted lineart of Nominus Prime, from Transformers Ongoing 23, on his Deviant Art account. Nominus is the Prime before Sentinel Prime. According to Alex, he decided to make this one a jet since so many other Primes are land-based vehicles.

This art and many other pieces like it are featured in the IDW Transformers Alex Milne sketchbook, on sale now.

Someone call the servbot from Mega Man. He'll clean it up.

reminds me a lot of cybertron starscream

Looks nice, but it looks like Gundam RX-78, Transformers style. When I look at mid-section and face, I can't help but see the RX-78.

Also looks like most every character from the Drift mini.
SPLIT LIP
Not a bad design, nothing Earth-shattering. Nice thinking outside of the box.

Could provide for some explanation as to why Thunderwing was called by the matrix. Perhaps Thunderwing was a direct descendant of Nominus.


...Then again, I don't know if Thunderwing has been connected to the matrix at all outside of g1.

I thought Zeta was before Sentinel . or is Hasbro still claming they are one in the same.
prime326
Awesome as always from Alex. I like the jet mode being different from the land based vehicles of other Primes.
ILoveDinobot
Was this the blue and yellow bot that gave optimus the chamber to hold the matrix?

I showed that guy from the comic to a bunch of my friends and no one knew who he was.
Railguard
Well with all the different series and comics I don't think we will ever get a true answer to the actual listing of who the first prime was down to Optimus. Awesome drawing though!!!
dragon_lord
I thought Nova Prime was the Prime before Sentinel o_0

Nova was the Prime a REALLY, REALLY long time before Sentinel stepped up.

There was probably a line of Primes that came after Nova vanished.
mogel94
Now thats just hawt

NOM
ILoveDinobot
So what was his name before he became Prime? Nom nom D:
Dr.Cox
It looks like what would happen if start scream was given the Matrix and turn into a prime.
Smasher
Very cool.

I'd be interested to see an Apex Armor for him as well.
The Bucket Kitten
WHAT, a Prime that turns into a jet?... Didn't see that coming. Nice design BTW.
courtdevil
He is Cybertron Starscream Transformation wise but very nice detailed.

Personally it's a style I'm not fond of seeing in the TF comics. And their helmets/faces tend to look really samey and I'm left wondering if it's a character I'm already supposed to know or someone new. As someone mentioned the Drift mini, that also left me wondering half the time one of these GundamFormers appeared.

Anyway, a Prime as a jet. It's okay. Nice artwork. Not sure why people are so surprised with the idea though.
Kaijumaster
WOW...so Cybertron was just BURNING through Primes before Optimus took up the Matrix eh?
bignick1693
Cool looks like star saber with a different head and not a brainmaster.
G1Wheeljack
I wouldn't mind a toy of that design, though the front of the jet mode reminds me of the Zords in Power Rangers RPM/Go-Onger, it only needs some pupils.
godthunder
What a big mistake。。。SENTINEL is after than NOVA PRIME not this nsssss prime!!!
LUGNUT1995
This is cool, but the name Nominus, bit weird.
HARD RAINBOW
So how long until a 3rd party makes a toy?

Hasbro is taking forever to make this thing. It's been like 12 hours since this design was released and I haven't heard any news about a toy.

No, Nova was a long, long time ago in IDW, pre the beginning of the war, long enough ago that it had become legendary. We don't know how many Primes there were between Nova and Sentinal...
O.Supreme
I dont know if this has been mentioned or not, but someone nees to compare Nominus vehicle mode with the concept art for Lithone characters (Arblus/Kranix) vehicle modes, anyone else notice a similarity??
Cadbane
should look good if made a toy.
JukeOutlander
Looks Rodimus-esque.

Om Nom Nominus.
KnightHawkke
I would in fact pay 3rd party cash for this, probably without hesitation.
MROptimusPrime
Sorry don't like the name or the design, no Prime jets for me.

True, and then there was Zeta Prime in-between Sentinel and Optimus, according to Spotlight: Blurr...

Yeah, I'm gonna echo the 'burning through Primes' statement someone else said earlier XD
RyanUybengkee
when gundam meets universe cyclonus.
Stormcrow
that's pretty boss.
Ezilla82
I kinda like that there was a Prime that could fly, I don't have any problem that other Primes were land vehicles, but its nice to have variety once and awhile. Its ashamed of the story behind him though.
GAUGE
as nice as those drawerings (P.O.T.C reference) are...they look like they belong in the Drift comic.

too bad really. Alex is awesome drawing other folks designs, but when left to his own devices, he seems to draw clones of his own designs. all his faces look the same to me.

but whatever, he's still a really nice mech artist and right up there as one of my favs still.
blur3479
People just look at spotlight optimus
Knaranek
I am getting a Robotech/Gundam/TF vibe from this. I wonder if he will do the Scott attack as well.
Necro Prime
Nice Job! I love you Alex Milne the Marker Guru.
VestigialHeart1
This would have been really interesting to me if he shared Optimus Prime's transformation sequence. As is he looks like generic cannon fodder in the background of a comic....
ZEGR
very gundam-ish
REMINATOR
Overall the design is good. It does seem to have a little bit of everything from Gundam to Power Ranger to Drift comic. I'm just laughing at the name, Nominus as in nominate. I think that name is a joke.
