    Picked up an Alpha Trion a week ago and well...it didn't feel like Alpha Trion to me. Which lead to this monstrosity being born!

    Nova Primal here is a repaint of Titans Return Alpha Trion and uses the Sentinel Prime Titan Master for a head. But the big thing here are those wings, generously donated by a now flightless DOTM Laserbeak. Super glued two Construct Bot pieces to the vehicle mode cockpit, cut some Construct Bot ball joints off and slid them into the wing's mushroom peg slots and then glued those joints to keep everything together. Also gave him the shield from the oversized Cyberverse BH Optimus Prime because why not?

    And again my apologies for the lighting in the pictures, the eyes on the lion and robot head are painted but it's hard to tell (except in the last picture where I included Nova's head just for that reason)

    Anyways I hope you like what you see, he was...quite the challenge for me.

    Hot diggity damn! This is ART! Can the wings in Manticore (its a manticore now) be positioned for flight action and such or are they fixed in place?

    The wings are actually on ball joints and can be rotated and posed in all sorts of ways.

    I think we found what Hasbro wants to repaint the toy into.

    Wow. Now that's a repaint I'd be interested in. Seems more suitable for Nova than Sentinel... Even the ship mode looks better in this scheme. I like how the gimmick crown for Sentinel's bot mode winds up finishing the Nova look. Good use of that BH Prime shield. Also, Zoid Lyger alt mode, I can't unsee it.

    That's lovely. It also reminds me of Tigerhawk, or the black repaint.

    I hope Hasbro copies this.

    I want this so bad. If you're willing to sell, that is.

    Amazing! Never would have thought about using this mold, but it just suits Nova perfectly. Great job!

    Look Great.
    There may be a hidden rules that you should able to plugin/hide the weapons in alternative mode.

    I could get behind Alpha Trion being a spaceship, but the lion part was always WTF for me. Set up like that for Nova Prime? Wow. I love it. Bonus points for using a pair of wings that look animal like for the lion form, and turn into a normal looking turbine for the spaceship!

    Thank you all for the kind words, means a lot to me! :D 

    I'd be interested in selling it actually. However right now I only feel comfortable selling my stuff in person, just so I'd know whoever is buying it is happy with it then and there. Which is why I'm bringing a few things with me to TFcon this month.

    If things go well there I may considering selling this, and future pieces, online.

    The sword and the shield can both be plugged in to the tops of the vehicle mode and lion mode turbines, and you can rotate the robot mode arm sections in vehicle mode to plug the weapons in there as well. So they can definitely plugin/hide, but for the sake of clear images of both alt-modes I left them out of the photos.
