SoD project by Peter Istyle :iconi-sithlord:


The City of Simfur first appeared in the (TFTM07) Movie Prequel miniseries, as a nod to Simon Furman.

Sentinel Prime was added to the continuity by John Barber, in the DotM prequel miniseries Foundation. This miniseries also tied together the prequel comics to the previous movies.

The two personalities of Sentinel Prime are a nod to a classic Saint Seiya storyline (the Pope is replaced by Gemini Saga, who is cursed by a good and an evil personality).

Glad it makes sense as we liked the prequels by Barber and Mowry, but the movies didn't make lot of sense.

*oh my*

This art is so beautiful. I am in awe of people who can do the stories they want themselves. Beautiful. So bookmarked.

This is a really clever idea to explain how Sentinel suddenly turned traitor in TF3. I don't think he was really born evil, just that he became obsessed over restoring his homeworld :)

I like how your Sentinel is slightly different from the Earth Movie version, to show his Cybertronian form :D

The different look of Sentinel came from the "Foundation" miniseries by the awesome John Barber. Ww wanted to follow his lead... well, we tried :)

In our book, a Prime cannot be evil! Especially one that carries the name of the "Philosopher King" Sentinel of our own SoD comics (check him out here!)

I agree that the name "Prime" means you should not be evil. Unfortunately it is confusing in the Movie Universe because I think The Fallen was originally named Megatronus Prime :confused:
M3Gr1ml0ck's avatar
Ah, yes, the Aligned Continuity. I'm not exactly a fan :)
wow..........this actually makes for sense than having Sentinel be the "traitor all along" or the one with his own agenda
NuvaPrime's avatar
Actualy he still has his own, but because of this now it all makes sense

We just disliked the idea of a Prime being evil "just because": his actions never made sense in the whole story.
Megatron on Earth is a loser, the leader of a really wek group. Why help him again, sticking to a pointless plan, just because millions of years ago he had the upper hand in the war?

WOW this is really interesting I would like to read more... ^^ Poor Optimus does not even know.
NuvaPrime's avatar
He'l eventually find out...
Tf-SeedsOfDeception's avatar
Did you read the official "Foundation" comic? There's a lot about the Sentinel/Optimus/Megatron story in that great miniseries :)
Our project will focus on the other story for G1 Optimus in the time to come (Wrath Of The Ages). ^^
HellboysLady's avatar
Yes I did and that is awesome to know I am looking forward to it.

Wish this would have been added and incorporated into DOTM!
M3Gr1ml0ck's avatar
Thanks! Considering how it is meant to fit with the Defiance and Foundation miniseries, our story is at least a part of those :)
Let's hope it merges without creating further nonsenses!
Blackvegetable's avatar
No problem, and I agree! :D

Must've been a lot of work, all those details of the Live Action Movie designs.
Tf-SeedsOfDeception's avatar
Indeed, but Lau was very focused on this from the beginning. And so were Tiina and Jennifer.
