It seems we are not quite done with "The Primes of Japan" just yet, as a seventh has just been posted up by Snakas. Saitama Prime is the mascot of the Saitama region of Japan, and is based on Bumblebee. His regional influence derives from an alternate spelling of Saitama in Japanese (彩玉市 instead of 埼玉市), where the kanji for "Sai" (彩) can also mean "colorful".

Check out more on the other Primes of Japan and the recently revealed Ginza Prime.

I gotta say, for just a few posts, you have made a lot of creditable news! Good job sir! Oh, and great repaint of Bumblebee, hehe.

It's based on how the region of Saitama, when spelled in kanji, can be written in two different ways - the alternate spelling uses a kanji which can also mean "colorful".
The Jack
Flamboyant 'bee

Those crazy Japs sure do love Rainbows.

Looking up Saitama on wikipedia it looks like their official mascot is a Dove. I wonder if that has anything to do with the wings...

-ZacWilliam, heck it could be a double pun with both the "colorful" meaning and the story of noah's dove and the rainbow, though that's not a particularly japanese-y so it could easily just be a coincidence...

I think I will pass on rainbow Bumblebee. No, really.

Chicago Prime would be a repaint of Bulkhead with a ball cap, holding an italian beef sandwich in one hand and a slice of deep dish pizza in the other.
