TF 1939 Prime's Crew by TheBoo TF 1939 Prime's Crew by TheBoo
Transformers 1939, a mini serise where the Transformers, robots able to take the shape of vehicles and machines, awoke on Earth just before the second world war.
Some of you I know enjoyed my previous WW2 era TF's such as this one [link]
and now here's another featuring Optimus Prime, ironhide, Jetfire and Ultra magnus.

Infact magnus and Jetfire never appeared in the original miniserise, so i had to design retro ww2 era looks for them.

enjoy
Boo

I have an idea. How about you keep Shrapnel as a Stag Beetle but have him as a Nazi Weapon.

Nazi Insecticons out of control, forcing prime and Megs to teamup

Fantastic work. The WW2 designs were pretty cool. The WW2 mini by Dreamwave was one of the few high points for me in their time with license. Jetfire looks cool, I'm seeing a touch of the Cybertron design there. Magnus looks pretty imposing as well.

I'm sorry..but i'm sure ive heard your name somewhere before, i gotta admit, i'm terible with names, even some of my oldest mates who i grew up with as kids have to remind me what their surnames are lol?

Glad you enjoyd my 1939 stuff, i've got a little love going for that serise which made me work up a design for 1939 magnus, but yes, i took alot of inspiration for 39 Jetfire from cybertron as well as the PatLee cover for the original crossover serise which had a heavy aircraft flying in the background

Great stuff again, I loved the 1939 redesigns too, it was a shame the dark style of Jae Lee didn't make them justice in the interior pages of the comic.

Have you posted a clearer pic of your Magnus redesign somewhere?

i know what you mean, it bugged me about Jae's dark sequentials too, but when i saw Don's designs for the 1939 TF's, luved them.

theres a clear picture of my 1939 Magnus battling Galvatron in my gallery

Oh, yeah, you mean this one: [link]

But I was asking for a more schematic pic, maybe showing the alt mode. Or you just used the same Dragon Wagon alt mode 1939 Optimus has?

Ha you cought me out, i havent actually drafted a full design for him despite a few people being interested in seeing one.
But if i Had, the basic premise would be Dragon Wagon Prime with white and skyblue highlights instead of Primes Red and Blue, with a more heavily armoured trailor for carrying light armoured vehicles, the trailor being his Ultra Armour.

Actually, if i get a chance over the weekend, i'll draw the design of my 1939 magnus in full.

Sounds great, maybe you can even include a tank as part of the armor, you know, kinda like the little blue drone ship that becomes the chest piece in the original armor.

You gotta sell for real. But that one could be interesting in that matter. In my opinion.

Is this one of the GIJoe/TF crossovers?
Reply
:icontheboo:
TheBoo Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2006
yeah it was original titled Transformers / GIJOE published by Dreamwave, but since thats finished, i remoddled it to be simply TF's with the fan name TF 1939

NuclearConvoy Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2006
Cool.
Was the comic any good for more than just designs?
How did they incorporate GIJoe in to WWII?
Reply
:icontheboo:
TheBoo Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2006
both story wise and art wise it's good, probably better as a graphic novel, both GIJOE and the Transformers fit in WW2 perfectly, with a dark and mysteryous origin for SnakeEyes as he confronts his tortured Brother and battles the demons within, Autobots fall and Tyrants rise. The only complaint is that Jae Lee's artwork is so overwhelmingly dark you carnt make out what the TF's really look like, but hsi work also creates a grim world that really makes you feel it's 1939

Hmmmm.
Is it darker than the 1st issue of Hearts of Steel?
Cause everyone complained bout that beeing too drk and I found it fine.

Yeah - 1939 Jetfire, i always had him in mind when you seemd so excited over him, then i rememberd what a raw deal he got in DW's first continuous G1 run of comics (being blown up and all) so i re-made him for the World War 2 TF's as one of those huge hulking planes the americans brought to the war.

There is a movie coming out. The Transformer movie. I didn't know that the idea was from the 30s. Wow. I watched the cartoon as a kid :D

TheBoo Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2006
The Live action movie thats coming out will actually be the second Transformers movie, the original TF movie was an animated masterpeice and i still cry when i watch it.

The oriingal Transformers cartoon had the TF's crash on earth during the dinosaurs, and they slept untill the 1980's, which is when they woke up.
but now theres LOTS of differnt TF cartoons and comics, one short serise had the TF's wake up early in 1939, and thats what i'm drawing :)

Sounds like the movie was more on the serious note. Trying to make a statement more than be cool for kids to watch :D

TheBoo Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2006
lol, well i know them fairly well :)

whenever any product goes to the movies it useually gets deformed by people who dont have any interest in it other than wods of cash, but fortunatly due to movies like Spiderman and Batman Begins which stuck close to the original formula, and Pirates breaking waves, the TF movie stands a better chance of being what it's supposed to be Alien Robots at war with each other over good and evil :P

i HATED the old Batman movies.

Batman Begins - I saw it at the theatre 3 times and bought it immediatly when it came

out on DVD :giggle:

I cannot wait for the next one. It was so well cast too. I have read many of the old comics. He was such a dark character. The original movies make him so prissy and not so much angry.

i enjoyed Kilmer and Cllony's batman films because they were like the 60's show and funny, but when i watched Equalibrium i said "Christian Bale has GOT to be Batman" and a few months later it was announced he was gonna be the Batman, it's a great movie, but the best bit is at the very very end, when he's next to the batsignal and gets handed the joker card, he finally looks comfortable in the mask.

apprently on set, dureing a lunch break a car's handbrake snapped and started rolling down the road towards all the camera crew, Bale lept across the road, jumped in through the open window and put on the brakes just before it almost killed a bunch of people
