    I had a few ideas for a fembot that I've been wanting to use for a long time 1 being the use of the front lights of a bike for goggles an other being the use of the handle bars for pig tails and the last being a design that wasn't just the same old stick thin character that most fembots seem to be. As far as character goes she's along the lines of perceptor in that shes a scientist rather then a soldier

    retrospectively I'm not sure if yellow was the best choice since I know BumbleBee was a similar bike and collour in the old Joe cross over

    Overall it's an incredible piece. Design, lines and coloring are top notch as far as transforming robots go. It just doesn't say TRANSFORMERS (brand) to me. Bit too unconventional to go with the G1 aesthetic.

    well its not for G1 or any existing continuity so I'm not really fussed that its not in line with that style.

    Wow. You've outdone yourself in terms of the shading quality in this one.

    Amazing. Simply Amazing. My only problem is that her "skirt" or whatever seems it would limit her leg articulation, but other than that she looks like she would fit right in with G1 or Classics/Universe designs! She reminds me of "Piper" from that Robots movie, though, with the pigtails and the yellow color.

    What does she turn into, though? And by that, I mean specific motorbike specs, since she obviously turns into a motorbike.

    Nice, a robot that has freckles and it works :D 

    Almost looks like it could be the robot mode of the orange motorcycle bot from TF-Cybertron who never transformed.

    if you want I could post up a few sketches of my workings (keep in mind they are just sketches done to help me guess how some parts need to be placed.

    Also thanks for all the comments guys they mean a lot to me
    Lugnutz? I think he did transform a few times... cant blame him for sticking to the bike more tho

    It's alright, nobody could tell what the hell was going on in those comics anyway. But I kid.

    Great job.

    Sweet work! great concept, she looks kinda Samurai-ish with those colors and skirt/armor. Is she based off an particular bike? If it was a Japanese model that would seal the deal!:thumbs2:
