Well i ran across a thread over at TFW. a guy was starting to kitbash Nova Prime
and it reminded me of this
i know everybody likes to see a little behind the scenes type stuff so here's a little nugget
Nova Prime's actually an older Optimus design Don had done for Hasbro, now being used as a character in the comics!
you'll note he has a different head design than he does in the comics.
On the left is the initial concept for his color scheme. Wanted to retain a little of the "warmer" colors that Prime's seem to always have [Sentinel with his orange and reds, optimus with red and blue, rodimus with red and orange] but felt it was maybe a little too much
It was a unique design so i wanted to try something a little different than the norm and the more white color scheme came into play. I think its pretty much the color scheme i used in the comics. I really like how it turned out. A lot of people say it kinda gives him an angelic feel so thats pretty cool. i really really love the wings Don gave him, and it looks so awesome in the comic.
so yah. hope you enjoy it
