    Two years after the events of BROKEN MIRROR, TREADSHOT and GRACE live together happily in their home in California, and Earth is protected by OPTIMUS PRIME and his heroic Autobots. However the peace is short lived as Treadshot’s Pretender body begins dying, putting his future with Grace in jeopardy. To make matters worse, MEGATRON and his DECEPTICONS return to Earth, hunting for an ancient relic of impossible power, and Treadshot is thrust back into his role as a soldier to defend his adopted home. Distrust and deception run deep, and the Transformers universe will be rocked to the very core in TRANSFORMERS: ASCENSION!

    ENTRY CRITERIA:

    • The character must be aligned with the Shattered Glass Decepticons

    • The character can be Male or Female

    • We’re looking for:
    o Original Characters
    o Characters who have never appeared in mainstream fiction
    o Characters who don’t have a SG counterpart
    Have a look around TFWiki for inspiration. Also feel free to give them a short description or bio – tell us a little bit about your creation and who they are. Personally, I’d take a look at Transformers Universe - Transformers Wiki for names; see if any work for you.

    • The design must be based around an easily attainable Legends/Deluxe class figure from one of the following toylines:
    o Generations
    o Prime/Beast Hunters
    o RID
    o Combiner Wars

    • No movie toys. Designs must be in line with Classics, Universe, Generations, Cybertron games or Prime for aesthetic consistency. Also none of that 1-step or 5-step crap.

    • Choose ONE of the following abilities/weapons:
    o Technopath – the ability to ‘talk’ to non-sentient technology e.g. doors, turrets, microwaves, Prowl.
    o C.L.U.T.C.H. – a small deployable sentry that assists a Transformer in battle.
    o Singularity Grenades – destructive gravitational bombs which create a small localised black hole that pulls anything nearby into it.
    o Crossbow – comes with special Explosive bolts, Energon-sapping bolts, Cryo-bolts and many others.
    o Warhammer – a large ornate melee weapon capable of dealing massive damage that sends out a shockwave that can knock enemies to the ground.
    o Grappling Hook – allows the user to reach areas that would be otherwise inaccessible. Can also be utilised as an offensive weapon.
    o Phasing – allows the Transformer to pass through solid objects.

    Entries can be hand-drawn, digibashes or whatever else. The winning design will be featured in future episodes of Transformers: Ascension. The reason we’re doing this so early is so that we can write the character into the scripts properly, rather than having cardboard cutout dialogue which could be slapped onto any old idiot.

    Only ONE ENTRY PER PERSON, subsequent entries will be disqualified. Any entries which are not your own will also be disqualified, and that person will be unable to participate in any future competitions organised by Crosshairs Productions.
    Submit your entries via the Crosshairs Productions Facebook page or here.

    Crosshairs Productions reserves the right to make whatever changes felt necessary to the winning entry for whatever reason.

    The deadline for entries is May 10th 2015. Best of luck!

    Entry

    My New Idea:

    Name:Burnt Rubber ("BR"to his Friends, including Treadshot)
    Gender:Male
    Base Figure:Combiner Wars Deluxe Breakdown
    Colour Scheme: Primarily Darkish Green, with black detailing on the Chest Piece and interior limbs, and a off-centred black stripe (like dead end) across the car, along with a blue eyes and a grey face.
    Ability: Phasing
    Bio: Speed is Burnt Rubber's best friend. He is almost obsessed with it, and often uses it to gain the upper hand in battle. More often than not, he will go out of his way just to show off his speed by defeating a few extra Autobots. But, in the end, he's more of a rule bender than a rule breaker, and he's really not all that bad to be around.....well, if you know how to handle him. Inside, he secretly doubts his abilities and wishes he was more like the Heroic Treadshot.

    NOTE: If you feel like you need any extra info for my entry, or you want me to change anything, just send me a message.

    NAME: Kickstart
    GENDER: Male
    BASE FIGURE: Transformers Generations Deluxe Bumblebee/Goldstrike
    ABILITY: Singularity Grenades
    COLOUR SCHEME: Gallardo orange, black trims and highlights
    BIO: Kickstart was once a no-sided vigilante after a traumatic experience with the vicious Autobots in the past. He got on Megatron’s radar, and was convinced to join the cons. A lone wolf, he spends most of the time on his own. Nevertheless, he is a strong and nimble soldier, and a dedicated freedom fighter. With the right motivation and attitude he becomes your lifetime ally with near unparalleled loyalty. Even if this causes his life to be on the line.

    P.S. the blade attachments on his arms are the figures accessories. The pegs on them would need to be on the opposite to get this result, with possibly a peg-hole in the side of each arms (this is all up to you, though)

    My Entry

    Hello
    There is entry I've been working on. I hope you like it.

    Transformers: Ascension
    Design a SG Decepticon

    Blue Tracks and Techa (Transformers Ascension).png

    Steven Rigg Entry
    YouTube name: JamesFan1991
    DeviantART name: Skyscream1/JamesFan1991

    Character Name: Blue Tracks
    Group: SG Decepticon (Ex SG Autobot)
    Gender: Male
    Toy Base: Transformers Prime Sergeant Kup
    Vehicle Mode: Pickup Truck
    Weapons: 2 Arm Mounted Assault Rifles, Techa
    Abilities: Singularity Grenades
    Personality: Blue Tracks is a confident bot who can place too much confidence in his skills and weapons. Sometimes he thinks that gun shots can’t touch him and he can survive anything. But his loyalty means he is willing to go to any length to save his team mates.

    Minicon Partner: Techa
    Gender: Female
    Toy Base: Transformers Robots in Disguise Legion Class Strongarm
    Vehicle Mode: Pickup Truck
    Weapons: Arm Mounted Pistols
    Personality: Techa is a serious Minicon who takes pride in her work. Being one of the last Minicons online makes her concerned at times but she is brave. She finds that she has to keep Blue Tracks in control but she’ll never leave his side in a battle.

    Bio: In the war between the Autobots and the evil Decepticons, an Autobot named Blue Track fought in the name of justice. But soon he betrayed his team mates by joining the Decepticons to save his own metal. He was killed by Ironhide for his betrayal but in the Shattered Glass he has a very different story. He join the evil Autobots to start with but soon decided he’ll join Megatron’s Decepticons for a second chance and fight against Optimus Prime’s carnage. Blue Tracks is an expert in weapons and close range combat and he’s serve Megatron for stellar cycle, He even got into Megatron’s Black Ops team. Soon he came across a damaged Minicon called Techa. After repairing her, she became Blue Tracks Minicon Partner and friend. With her knowledge of Guns and Grenades crafting, she makes sure Blue Tracks’ ammunition are full and ready. Blue Tracks also became a friendly rival to a Decepticon called Treadshot, on mission together they would always see who would kill the most Autobots. After Treadshot death was reported, Blue Tracks vowed that the next time he saw Optimus Prime, He will kill him.

    (Note: I know you said only one entry per person but I was wondering if Minicon partners count because they are part of the same entry. I understand if you want to remove Techa, That’s OK be me.)
