    ...with ANY kind of custom creation/artwork?

    I mean, his 'father' Sixshot is a firm fan favourite from G1, but the little blue brick guy never got much in the way of attention, which is tragic given he was the first Autobot attempt at a six-changer (Sixknight notwithstanding).

    Hmmm, I like it, but what I'm looking for is more of a reimagining, Animated style...

    Not even a custom, just illustrations and a profile would satisfy my curiosity.

    Animated Quickswitch

    Here he is; Animated Quickswitch!

    Since this is my first atempt at EVER drawing an animated character I'm real happy with the reslut :D 

    I used TFA Ultra Magnus body as a base for him and changed him up as I saw fit.

    I used the boxart, his profile from 'More then meets the eye' and pictures of the actual toy as reference. And at the same time I studied the TFA cartoon and pics on the web.

    Hope you like him! (I sure do!)

    //Thomas aka Laserbeak_Eject


    P.S. Re-colored him a little and posted that too.

    That is absolutely superb Laserbeak!

    I especially love the way you've made his legs taper toward the top - that one, tiny little adjustment would be enough to take away so much of the toys blockiness and make his jet and boat modes look like they can actually move lol.

    Expect him to be Tack-Formed shorty ;-)

    Thank you very much, glad you like it!

    Yeah like I said, I studied ALOT of TFA to get the right feel for it, haha, never really watched it before but now I'm getting a hang of it.

    And yeah, the toy is the definition of "blocky", actually I believe his picture is in Websters dictionary, right next to that very section;)  haha

    What about Sixshot's estranged uncle, Seven Changer? His modes look a hell of a lot better.

    Well, some do. His submarine and jet modes aren't anything to write home about. :/
