A couple of new recruits
first up Alt Hot shot
and Alt Mach Alert (RID SUPER MODE PROWL)
Awsome job! I especially love the color on Hot Shot.
Nice work, I see you found the same lightbars I used on CHP Prowl.
HOLY CRAP! Alt Mach Alert/Prowl actually LOOKS like RID Prowl. I mean, the mold, the head, the whole works. Awesome job on both of these. I probably would have chosen a brighter pearl/metallic yellow for Hot Shot, but it still looks really good.
the tackiness is part of the character as I have developed for him.
Hotshot is the young punk that can't seem to catch a break, constantly being outdone not only by his brothers Hotrod and Hotwire but seemingly by everyone else, every circuit of the underground rally he is bested, in highway mayhem by Grotesque, in downtown doubletime by Doublecross and just embarassed by repugnus in the down n dirty derby...
actually based on one of those annoying rice burner street rod idiots you'd see in the parking lot of a Wal-Mart in the middle of nowhere at 2am with the constant "YOU F!@#$%ng idoit you screwed up again !" syndrome, so much so that it will be Hotrod who takes the blame for Optimus' fall at Autobot city, but he makes for good story telling in the fact that there will always be a need for characters to associate with that do rise to the occassion even if it is for a fleeting moment... which is why Havok was always more interesting than Cyclops
in one part of the story echos a scene from TFTM on the way back to cybertron he and hotrod are sparring and he gets in a cheapshot and the ship is attacked while Hotrod is retaliating hotshot starts badgering "time out! Time Out! TIME OUT!"
MachAlert is the odd man out in Ironhide's security team, very rule driven and highly diciplined. Skilled in multiple forms of martial arts both Cybertronian and Terran. Think Jet Li in the beggining of "The One". Is prone to being very overbearing on his expectations of Others especially his brothers, often making excuses for them in order to maintain his status of being the "good one" He will have his time to shine a couple times in the story when he faces off against Rampage. But he is for the most part going to be a background player.
Your Mach Alert/Prowl is really, really awesome. Great work.
I keep looking at him and Hot Shot needs a visor
Both are great, I can't stop gushing over that metallic yellow...
