Auceps Prime

Recommended Posts

What if the Matrix had been passed not to Ultra Magnus or Hot Rod, but instead to the least likely? A certain diminutive yellow autobot gets the 'Prime' treatment...

But wouldnt it be Bumblemiss Prime?

Optimus is the latin word for 'best', however, Rodimus is just a nonsense word created from Hot Rod's name in an attempt to maximise acceptance of him as the new leader. I've never liked the name personally and can think of a range of better and 'cooler' options. I was very pleased to see DW avoided using the 'imus' element in their choice of names for the three Primes before Optimus (Alpha, Guardian and Sentinal).

 

I chose Auceps for Bumblebee because it translates to 'spy' or 'eavesdropper'.

 

:thumb Glad you all like him - I had visions of been flamed to oblivion for daring to alter such a favourite character!

Ok thanks for the explanation.

 

Great work, I have seen somewhere a rendition of Wheelimus Prime that was suprising good for such a horrrible character.

 

But you answer a question that I have long thought about, what would the new modes be for some of the transformers if they were chosen as primes successor instead of Rodimus and Magnus(for a brief time).

I'd've called him "Mellifarus Prime"

 

Apis mellifara=scientific name for bee.

I'm impressed by how it combines elements of Bumblebee's helmet, Prime's helmet, and Goldbug's helmet around the faceplate. Very cool.

 

A few wonky perspective issues, but hey, I can't really call people on that too much, as I have the same problem half the time. :tflaugh
