    Aside from the head. And the chest windows. And the grill on the chest. Actually there's a bit of visible truck cab. And the truck wheels in the legs.

    This isn't my particular cup of tea but it's further proof that Josh Nizzi is a god among men.

    It's just a super busy design where it's easy to lose track of identifying markers.
    As someone else mentioned, it's more aligned to Armored Core.

    This is truly a masterpiece. I can see this mode against Unicron. Maybe Nizzi has a concept of unicron for p1 some day.

    I'm of two minds with this one.
    I agree that the design is too busy.
    I agree it looks like it would fit in an Armored Core game.

    But at the same time I absolutely love this thing.
    Like, I'm looking at the blue panels wondering what the hell they are, why are they just randomly on Prime's back then BAM! I realize they are what would be his trailer in truck mode and I'm like "Brilliant."

    This looks incredible! Unfortunately, it\'s also a statue. Nonetheless, I love josh nizzi\'s designs. People can shout less is more all they want, but man I love this asthetic!

    Josh Nizzi is a GOAT tier Transformers concept artist.

    A lot of his post TF2007 pre DOTM work is amazing, and I'm glad that some of it has made it to plastic form.

    Sure, it's busy, though, I feel like this is busy done right. Every piece seems to have purpose and I can identify quite a few truck parts. Not my favorite Prime design or anything, but it's still pretty cool. I appreciate the work put into this.

    You kids are so cute, insulting people for having an opinion.

    This design is just ok. For the people who will buy it I'm glad you like it. I'm more of a geewunner so I would never buy this thing and understand why others also don't like the design.

    To me this design is obtuse.

    Isn't it a bit extreme to say that Josh Nizzi should "go away" just because he makes designs that you seriously don't like...

    This thing looks amazing. I wish it had the TF movie flames on it though. Then it’d be perf.

    I was looking up Nizzi's older work and I found the Exoarmor concept from 2008 that seems to have evolved into the Powermaster Statue, also I learned Nizzi designed Willem Dafoe's Goblin Glider and outfit

    There is a difference between having an opinion about a design and thinking the designer should "go away" just because said designer makes designs the person doesn't like.

    Yeah while I’d love a Powermaster Prime, I’m leaning more towards the Fans Hobby Power Baser… This just doesn’t look the part IMO. He’s got like a second pair of arms or something…? And honestly the “action shots” make it look far more like a Gundam than a transformer to me.

    Don’t get me wrong, this thing looks like it’s got enough paint on it to drown Godzilla. But it’s not for me.

    Indeed, and the stuff he did for Bay's films doesn't even come close to the best stuff he's ever done, even just talking about his TF stuff.
