Prime After Prime by Jochimus Prime After Prime by Jochimus
This I cobbled together from various drawings I did a while ago of pretty much all the Primes that have been made into toys that I know of - Optimus, Rodimus, Primal, Omega, and Vector. I'd have had Nemesis in there, but an evil Optimus clone would have looked a little out-of-place and outnumbered. :D

actually nemesis prime is nova prime who changed himself and ended up looking like optimus

Shouldn't Big Convoy or Mammoth Prime be in there, his action figure even has the Matrix Of Leadership.

Woah... this is a very detailed work. Optimus and Omega are my favorites.. I think that you catch those two well in here and your colouring looks good ;)

Very cool...but what happened to Rodimus' spoiler?
Jochimus Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2007
Well, it got cut off. It was on the original drawing on did; I drew all of them separately full-body and then spliced this one together from those. (Incidentally, I had the pic of him from the Dreamwave MTMTE book as a reference)

Ah...these things happen. I drew a page for my first comic and my friend inked Daniel as a rock. It took us a while to quit laughing over that one. Actually...he wasn't much different from a rock anyway....

I'd love to see the full versions of your whole picture.

there was a dark optimus in the armada series i don't remember his name
Jochimus Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2007
Yeah, that was Nemesis Prime.

I've never really been fond of the whole 'Optimus' evil twin' thing, because:

1) Optimus' evil twin never has a goatee :D .
2) It'd been more fun if they had Peter Cullen voicing one of Optimus' evil twins for once (a nod to KARR from "Knight Rider" there).
3) RID Scourge was a way better character than Armada Nemesis Prime, who IIRC was just a mindless drone.
4) We've had enough Optimus repaints from Hasbro (I wouldn't mind the Ultra Magnus figures if they would just give him a damn exo-suit/battle-armor-trailer gimmick of some kind - makes me wish they'd given the Energon Ultra Magnus figure [Armada Overload repaint] a real production run instead of just a quick runoff on the mold).

Anyway, those are a couple reasons why I'm not too fond of the concept of Nemesis Prime. Gimme girl-bots and metal beards any day over another evil Optimus clone. ;)

ur optimal seems to have different coloring. i remember him having orange, blue, and purple or something. ur coloring is definetely more prime-like.
Jochimus Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2007
Duh, I meant to say OPTIMAL OPTIMUS is who Optimus Primal was. :P
Jochimus Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2007
You're thinking of Optimal Optimus (Primal), who was made from the same mold and released in the Beast Wars toy line.

The recolor in my pic is Primal Prime, a separate character who appeared in the Botcon comics (he later became Sentinel Maximus) and was released in the Beast Machines line.

The theme of this pieces is that they're all Primes, even if in surname only; Optimus Primal - which is who Optimus Primal was - was never legitimately a Prime (the closest he ever got was either being turned into Optimal Optimus, or being hand-picked by Primus and Alpha Trion to lead the Autobot-Maximal alliance in Botcon's Transformers Universe comic)

Ooh! You should do a pic with them all swarming around Nemesis, beating the slag out of him. :P

This is incredible! I love the idea, each drawing is done brilliantly, well coloured and well executed in pose.....nicely done. :)

nice layout
charleskusiak Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2006
Aren't they all called Convoy in Japan, for reasons unknown to even me? That aside, very nice.
Jochimus Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2006
To my knowledge, yeah. Although I don't know exactly how the Prime surname would apply to Vector, since I don't know if he was ever an "actual" Matrix-bearer.
Tiger-Prime Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2006
very super awesome :#1

You know that Omega is 1 1/2 toys combined
odairjr Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2006
