    Mine are an amalgamation of a few things:
    • What I've read on TFWiki
    • Transformers: Cybertron
    • What I'm able to do with my own figures
    • My own head canon

    In order of creation, with representative figure in parentheses:
    1. Vector Prime (Cybertron Vector Prime)
    2. Micronus Prime, AKA Safeguard (Cybertron Safeguard)
    *Vector and Micronus were the first Conjunx Endura
    3. Epistemus Prime, AKA Alpha Trion and Sovereign (forthcoming Titans Return Alpha Trion)
    4. Maximus Prime and Emissary (Perfect Effect Warden)
    *Fortress Maximus was built in his image and named after him.
    5. Sentinel Prime and Infinitus (Titans Return Sentinel Prime)
    *Epistemus, Sentinel, and Maximus were jealous of the bond between Vector Prime and Micronus Prime, and tapped into Primus's creation energy to create their own Conjuges Endurae, from their own heads.
    6. Nova Prime (Combiner Wars Battle Core Optimus Prime)
    *First combiner, can combine with any transformers capable of combination to form Nexus Prime.
    7. Onyx Prime (Beast Wars Voyager Optimus Primal)
    *First of five Primes to leave Cybertron to establish off-world colonies. His colony planet, Eukaris, is home to Transformers with organic beast modes.
    8. Colossus Prime (Cybertron Metroplex)
    *Second of five Primes to leave Cybertron to establish off-world colonies. His colony planet, Gigantion, is home to Transformers of enormous size.
    9. Solus Prime, AKA Override (Cybertron Override)
    *Third of five Primes to leave Cybertron to establish off-world colonies. Her colony planet, Velocitron, is home to Transformers of immense speed, and has a disproportionately high population of female Transformers.
    10. Quintus Prime, AKA Evac (Cybertron Evac)
    *Fourth of five Primes to leave Cybertron to establish off-world colonies. His colony planet, Earth, is home to a very small number of Transformers who have blended in with Earth society by disguising themselves as ordinary Earth machinery.
    11. Dragonus Prime, AKA Brimstone (Cybertron Scourge)
    *Last of the five Primes to leave Cybertron to establish off-world colonies, choosing exile as punishment for his role in the conpiracy to overthrow the other Primes (see below). His colony planet, Animatros, is home to Transformers with dragon-like beast modes.
    12. Saber Prime/Nemesis Prime (G2 Laser Optimus Prime/RiD Scourge)
    *Unrepentant in his role in the conspiracy (see below), escaped, changed his name to Nemesis Prime, and became the first Decepticon.
    13. Megatronus Prime (Transformers: Prime Voyager Megatron)
    *Instigator of the conspiracy between himself, Dragonus Prime, and Saber Prime to overthrow the other Primes. Megatronus Prime was presumed killed in the battle between his coconspirators and the other Primes, but his body was never recovered.

    This thread inspired me to dig around my boxes and find what I find a "suitable" 13.
    I chose the mainline 13 for them.
    • Prima - PRID Ultra Magnus; This guy needed a new home since his replacement with Beast Hunters UM.
    • Vector Prime - Cybertron Vector Prime; obviously.
    • Megatronus - Animated Voyager Megatron; His movie shaped head makes a good Fallen style. Just needs some black paint touch ups, as his grey is unbearably light.
    • Nexus Prime - I got nothing currently but I plan on getting a G2 Combiner Wars team to probably fill this role.
    • Logos Prime - Fall of Cybertron Soundblaster or Universe Blaster; This is a hard choice, one has the right color but the other is the right mold.
    • Micronus - Leadfoot (PCC); A stand in until I think of something better. Both white and small, so it works for now. Might be better if I remove some paint apps.
    • Liege Maximo - Infiltration Soundwave; Design wise is a great match. "Hoofed" feet, arm blades, cape-like back panels, and horns. Face is too Soundwave but seeing as Maximo is the first decepticon (if you believe that) I think it works rather well too. Colors are a bit off, but I feel they are close enough they invoke a G2 Liege Maximo. Even his vehicle mode can make a monstorous form that reminds me of his G2 self (minus horns).
    • Solus Prime - No idea. I tried Movie 1 Arcee but she wouldn't hold the Forge. So scrapped that.
    • Epistemus - PRID Hot Shot; Perhaps a reformated and younger version of him. I really only grabbed him because he had goggles and I feel like Epistemus needs goggles.
    • Autonomous - Universe Vector Prime; Mistransformed slightly to give a more rectangle appearance.
    • Solomus - TR Alpha Trion; No explanation needed.
    • Onyx Prime - Beast Hunters Dreadwing; I was planning to use Universe Razorclaw, however I could not find him. Until we see what Onyx Prime looks like in the IDW comics I think he will work.
    • Alchemist Prime - PRID Kup; I think this Kup looks like Maccadam, even the colors are close. Pretending the Ironhide barrel cannons are Beer kegs or steins make this a perfect fit. Just need to paint a 'stache.
    Suggestions and feedback would be great, but I bet this thread will sink again. :p

    I personally prefer the Aligned/IDW line up of Primes.

    Figure wise:

    Prima - MMC Seraph Prominon**
    Megatronus Prime - RID Megatronus*
    Alpha Trion - Titans Return
    Vector Prime - Universe 2.0
    Nexus Prime - hopefully a Combiner Wars version
    Onyx Prime - Beast Hunters Predaking*
    Solus Prime - Salvia Promnion**
    Quintus Prime - ???
    Micronus Prime - undecided**
    Liege Maximo - ???
    Alchemist Prime - ???
    Amalgamous Prime - ???
    Optimus Prime - Battle Core Optimus Prime***

    *awaiting better versions
    **awaiting official versions
    ***subject to change

    Mine head cannon is incomplete but I do base it on the Multiverse 13. It's incomplete so I might come back later and fill in some blanks. Descriptions from TFWiki
    • Vector Prime - The guardian of space and time, who spent most of his life outside of reality, observing it and occasionally stepping in to help. - Cybertron Vector Prime
    • Megatronus - Formerly the guardian of entropy, whose name was stricken from history when he betrayed his brothers and became a Herald of Unicron under the new name "The Fallen". - TFU 2.0 Classics Nemesis Prime - Defeated by the original 13 but was later resurrected by Unicron as a twisted mirror image of Optimus Prime and bestowed with the "Dead Matrix"
    • Logos Prime - An enigmatic figure who, operating in the present day under the new name Soundblaster, sought to pass on his incredible powers over time and space to an heir. - Titans Return "Titanmaster" Soundblaster and he combines with his chosen heir TR Soundwave
    • Liege Maximo - A legendary schemer. - Cybertron Sideways. He has the ability to mimic either Autobot or Decepticon to play both sides to his advantage
    • Epistemus - Renowned for his unconventional intellect. - TR "Titanmaster" Sovereign - united with Solomus to save his life and combines the kindness of Solomus and the intellect of Epistemus and thus Alpha Trion is born and dedicates his combined abilities into the training of a young Orion Pax who he forsees great potential.
    • Autonomous Maximus - A lonely sentinel who renounced his name, becoming simply known as the Last Autobot. - TR Cerebros. He renounced his name and instead chooses to maintain a lonely watch inside the confines of Fortress Maximus
    • Solomus - A gentle and kind individual. - Titans Return Alpha Trion
    • Onyx Prime - In-tune with nature and the organic. - Beast Machines Deluxe Optimus Primal
    • Alchemist Prime - Rumored to have established a bar on modern Cybertron, seeking to provide a respite from endless war. - ???

    My list for the 13 has changed a bit, not much but enough to warrant noting it.

    Prima, Nexus, Onyx, Leige, Megatronus, Amalgamous, Vector, and Alpha Trion are all the same but these 3 are new:
    Micronus Prime = Armada Corona Sparkplug
    Quintus Prime = Energon Dreadwing (I feel his look evokes the scientist that Quintus is)
    Solus Prime = Botcon 2014 Flareup w/ Prime Magnus Hammer

    I'm still not sure who for Alchemist, and until the 13th is officially stated I'm considering these 2 for the 13th:
    Logos Prime = FoC SoundBlaster
    Star Convoy = TR Optimus w/ Diac

    Seriously guys for me both Optimus Prime and Megatron should be considered part of the 13 because what is the point of having the 13 Primes if they're not part of it.I like to think the following happened in TF Lore:

    Optimus Prime started out (as someone mentioned) as Liege Maximo but then something happened to him either badly injured or killed in battle,then someone like Alpha Trion saved him but couldn't save Liege's body so he implanted Liege's conscience into a new body and thus that's how Orion Pax and ultimately Optimus Prime came to be.

    Megatron I like to think something similar happened to him which he started out as Megatronus then later becoming The Fallen due to an accident which turned him evil and was killed and came back as Megatron.

    As for the 13 Primes I am pretty content with the list like that.I also like Alpha Trion and Vector Prime as part of that continuity.But honestly I wish either Hasbro or even some 3rd Party would do a complete set of these characters since its been 10 years since we've known about them (well some of them at first) and think its time we got all 13,does anyone else agree?.

    My head canon for fitting megatron into the 13 is as follows:

    According to aligned Optimus fought and defeated unicron in unicrons spark chamber, being this close to such evil tainted Optimus' spark. Upon returning to the allspark primus or onyx/micronus was able to purge the taint of unicron from optimus' pure spark creating the spark of the being that would become megatron

    I currently am basing mine off of IDW/Covenant of Primus. Kind of difficult at the moment because we still haven't seen all of them, or at least cool designs for all of them.

    Prima - MMC Seraphicus Prominon
    Solus Prime - MMC Salvia Prominon
    Megatronus Prime - Maketoys Chaos/ Paladin
    Alpha Trion - Aft Toys Titanium Saint
    Vector Prime - Galaxy Force version

    I'm looking for either stand-ins, 3rd Party or official versions of the following:
    Micronus Prime
    Liege Maximo
    Nexus Prime
    Amalgamous Prime
    Alchemist Prime
    Quintus Prime
    Onyx Prime
    13 - not sure if I should include an Optimus but there are plenty to choose from

    Amalgamous prime is the shifter correct? Logos prime from the Japanese continuity and from their version of the group vector prime belonged to was a shape shifter as well so I would say use the foc soundblaster figure as logos prime was galaxy force soundblaster (basically I'm saying amalgamous and logos prime could be the same guy)

    Nexus prime could be any combo of unite warriors/combiner wars figures

    Onyx prime id say any of the beast hunters predaking figures
