Transformers: IGNITION - Optimus Prime (Alt Mode) by KrisSmithDW Transformers: IGNITION - Optimus Prime (Alt Mode) by KrisSmithDW
TRANSFORMERS: IGNITION - Optimus Prime (Vehicle Mode)

Turnaround of the design of Optimus Prime's vehicle mode. Although I have nothing against Prime having a long-nose truck form like the Laser Rod, Movie and TFPrime incarnations, and its not ruled out that he can't get one down the road, I wanted to have a more nostalgic feel at the start so it was important that he transform unto a flat-nosed, COE truck.

(EDITED WITH COLOUR CORRECTIONS ON AUGUST 7 2013)

Check out the teaser poster!!!

Sweet truck man! But a few questions- 1) Can we get a version with a trailer? 2)Custom license plate/ bumper stickers? 3) Will there be a Powermaster Prime? Again, Great job and I look forward to your future works

1) Trailer coming eventually, I promise, but just not at the start, but he's gotta get a trailer eventually!  Lots of characters starting out a wee bit different at first, but things can change...  Examples:  Sunstreaker just a yellow recolour of Sideswipe and not his own unique transformation?  Dirge, Ramjet and Thrust WITHOUT coneheads?  Megatron with a piddly wussy arm cannon?  SHOCKWAVE WITH A FACE??!!!  

2) Probably not, I usually skip those or simplify them or only use them in extreme EXTREME closeups

3) I am looking into a take on Powermaster Prime/combining with trailer but it's a while off.  But I will be getting into trailer armor and other add-on thingys with some characters before getting to Prime.  Gotta make him tough as he is first lol :P

It certainly fits the style of the rest of your designs but this exhibits something I've grown to hate from Transformers as of late, and that is a disconcern for limitations of either mode's proportions. Put simply, I can't see the robot mode going to this and back without parts either passing through each other like a poorly-thought-out CGI model, or outright shapeshifting.

Just a pet-peeve. Otherwise it's fine.
