    Here is my Auto-Joe Hound, made from a Road-bot and a Vamp jeep.

    Not bad and cool idea but it looks a little frumpy in robot mode.

    Hey you finally posted over here! Good work once again DV! The car mode looks really good. It's gotta be pretty hard to get a great car mode and bot mode.

    I'd say car=great and bot=pretty good

    Yeah, the vehicle mode looks great, I think it's the legs/torso that throw the bot mode off in my mind...the torso looks too long and the legs too short, that is if the legs start where I think they do...I'm not sure it might be the angle of the picture...

    Anyways, still 100 times better than anything I could do, so Kudos!

    Finally someone who understands, I notice a lot of people criticize the work when its freakin hard to make a proportional robot. I dont mind criticism, thats how we learn, but whenever I put a TF on this site usually the words "good" and "crappy" fall in the same sentence. I find the scrutiny and lack of civility sometimes to be too much on these Tf sites.

    Thank you for your kind and constructive words

    Hmm. I find the Radicons to be MOST supportive of other's art, and in no way uncivilized.

    But back on topic, I think you've got a winner here, the legs/arms are perfectly functional looking, and who's to say that "human" proportions are optimum for robot? Great job if you ask me, and bonus for not just repainting Uni. Hound!:thumbs2:
