    A very very different take on the Technobot. I did this guy before but I was never happy with it as IMO it was too bulky for something that formed a Tron/Akira/Extreme G style bike.

    the big idea with this guy was to use the wheels as knees. as for colours I think I'm going to go with something different (but still with some orange)

    This is the old pic its all very true to the G1 guy but I'm a bit meh about it.

    I'm not too sure about a couple of things, namely the shoulders (can they actually rotate? because it seems his chest will get in the way)..maybe you want to tilt them a bit and place them higher? Don't really like the backwings, either..

    Other than that, though, superb drawing! Love the wheel knees. The leg parts don't seem to be connected at all, which looks a bit weird, but I think it works.

    AWESOME stuff! (and yes, I think he looks much cooler than the previous drawing!)

    I think these are great! Love the color on the older one and the wheel knee idea on the other.

    the idea with the chest is that the middle slice moves with the arm so if the arm wanted to move say 90 degrees the middle slice would move 45 degrees.

    sadly the back wings are really just bits of the bike shell (yeah he's a bit of a shell former)

    I don't know about others but I actually like the original G1 inspired version more.

    Granted I'm a sucker for glowy lighting though, I'm just not too into the knees on the Tron inspired version.

    And by now Blitz ol buddy ya gotta know I absolutely love the way you color all your well drawn line art.

    The colors look good, but a rubber look might have been better, even if it is Tron inspired. Still, he's awesome.

    Its really fresh, I love it. The knees are inspired. I'm not troubled by the panels on his back, the only idea I can think to move them away from there is if they became weapons, like blades, or have them act like the energon attachments the omnibots had. I'd love to see all the technobots with this unique aesthetic. Great.

    I was tempted to have them on his sides but that plus the colours I didnt want him to give off a Drift vibe

    Awesome. I want the toy. :D 
    Seriously though, he looks like he'd make for a really cool figure.
