Cannonspring: Second to come off the assembly line is: Cannonspring. He was built using CW Brawl as the base. There’s not much to tell here. The head came from a Deluxe Optimus I turned into Blaster, and I used the twin cannons from Energon Blight to help give him the look of that mould. Other than paint, that’s pretty much all I did to him. Paint was all done with rattle cans. Since these guys were only mentioned in Novels, and never shown anywhere, I had to take a few liberties. I’ve seen a couple of Nexus Primes made to look real similar to the TFCC version and they are too awesome. I always try to be as original as possible, or at least do something to make my work different in some way, so I decided I would go with the Aligned version. I mean it doesn’t really matter anyway since at the time they were thought up NP was still a Universal Singularity, which makes them all the same guy anyway. But in my mind he’s a mixture of the two, so I needed to find a mould that works for each team member. His name’s Cannonspring, I mean COME ON! That pretty much screams TANK. And on the TFCC version there just happened to be a tank guy so I went with it. In the fiction he crashed on Junkion, but was never awoken from stasis until the other four came there to find him, so he wouldn’t have found a new body/alt-mode. This means that he needed to be fairly close to the one that we actually did see, Landquake. So that’s where the colors come from. I just trimmed off the main turret, and added the two to the sides. Please let me know what you think: Cannonspring: Function: Ground Assault Group: The Thirteen “If duty calls for our deaths, then they will be deaths worth dying.” Strength: 10 Intelligence: 8 Speed: 5 Endurance: 8 Rank: 8 Courage: 10 Firepower: 9 Skill: 9 Prior to crashing on Junkion Cannonspring traveled space in order to stay one step ahead of those who sought the power of the Chaos Edge, and his part of the Blades of Time for evil. He has an almost unnatural ability to create, and control energon, which he can use to create weapons, shields, and even power himself, and teammates with. Forms any limb of Nexus Prime, though nominally, his placement is best as the left leg.
