    All he has so far is the first coat of the darker blue. Will get much more done to him, but wanted to go ahead and get this thread up.


    Clocker:

    Next off the assembly line is: Clocker. He was built using CW Wheeljack as the base. Exhaust pipes, and gun come from Cybertron Clocker, and the head is from Cybertron defense Hotshot. Swords come from Prime Wheeljack.

    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. In my mind, he takes the place of Skyfall in the TFCC issue. I chose this because Clocker, and Skyfall were both Velocitronians. I didn’t want to go with the red and blue again after doing Cannonspring, so I opted to go with a more Cybertron Clocker look.

    Please let me know what you think:

    Clocker:

    Function: Scout/Courier

    Group: The Thirteen

    “You’re either a hindrance, or a help.”

    Strength: 5 Intelligence: 9.5 Speed: 8

    Endurance: 9 Rank: 7 Courage: 7.5

    Firepower: 6 Skill: 8.5

    Excellent engineer, with a knack for building and fixing things when they are needed the most. Has the ability to unconsciously generate a force field around himself when his life is in danger. This makes him almost invulnerable. Young and impetuous due to time spent on the speed obsessed world of Velocitron. Uses this to help in his role within the team, although it does sometimes cause him to burn through fuel faster than the others. Forms any limb of Nexus Prime, though nominally, his placement is best as the right leg.

    this is a nice figure you have done however part of the whole thing with nexus prime is the unifying red and blue color scheme.plus it just looks a little bland in what looks to be 1,possibly 2 shades blue.a little red would go a long way to break up the blue at least in bot mode

    As I explained above, these are re-imaginings of the five components. Cannonspring is staying the more or less, see his thread, due to the fact that he never woke up until the others found him. clocker will be modelled after a mix of the Cybertron Clockers when I'm done with him. That wasn't the finished project. I just got too excited and posted a WIP shot or two.
