Sentinel Prime by Raikoh-illust Sentinel Prime by Raikoh-illust
Sentinel Prime hails from an older time, when Cybertron was the galaxy's crown jewel, and the Transformer race was full of promise and potential. The only known remaining Prime, he personified what a leader should be: wise, compassionate, and a more than worthy warrior. Revered by both Autobot and Decepticon, few would dare stand against his shield and Primax Blade.

But when Sentinel was presumably lost forever on board the Ark, Optimus Prime, his hand-picked successor, was left to fill his void. The loss of Sentinel signaled the end of Cybertron's golden age, and the planet spiraled deeper into war. Some who recall Sentinel's reign bitterly remember when Transformers were masters of their fate, rather than scattered to the stars and living as exiles.

You know this is good when I can pull my attention away from his freakishly huge eyebrows long enough to admire the pic.

If Megatron had a dark past, Sentinel must've had one too, resulting in a low self-esteem and left him vulnerable to loosing all confidence, willing to resort to ttreason to save his homeland.

In G1, he was supposedly a construction worker in his early days. Like Megatron, he must've been a slave labourer, later transitioning to another bleak and grim occupation like serving as an executioner (paralleling Megatron's own days as a Gladiator).

What do you think?

G1 and the movies were different universes. In this one, the war brooke much morale making Optimus more violent and Sentinel insanely desperate. I don't agree for Optimus' actions at the end but I understand. He lost all trust in the closest family he had. Good Painting though.

And I like his theme song it works for Javik and his final moments to Udina.
