Optimus Prime is Back by MachSabre Optimus Prime is Back by MachSabre
This is from Marvel's Transformers Issue #80, the splash page where Optimus Prime came back (again). Artist Andrew Wildman was awesome enough to give me a high-rez scan of the lineart so I can recolor it. And I figured with the recent anouncement of Transformers Issue #81... This was totally fitting.

Hope you like it.

Excuse me, I'm making a Death Battle of Optimus Prime G1 vs Gundam, and I was wondering if I could use your picture in the Prelude, with u our permission of course.  I will credit you in the description below the Prelude.

I kinda can't, as I didn't draw it and I don't own it. Andrew Wildman drew it for #80 of the original Marvel comic series. so the artwork is his and Hasbro's property.

How many times has he died now? ...... Lemme think....86 movie 1, season three, 2, comic books, about five million....

......

Yeesh, he's been dead more than most comic book supervillians combined.

There's simply no "Transformers" without Optimus Prime in it.

That's it, roll the credits, we got the most badass line in this production. Anything after it will just water it down.
