    Hi there. Here's my Rodimus pic for the contest. Not really much of a colourist so I've tried to keep it simple. Hope you all like.

    Nice pic, looks more like Classics Rodimus broken up instead of movie-style Rodimus.

    He looks very sad. Emotionally. As a design, he rocks, but he just looks like he is going to cry for some reason. Ha ha ha!

    thanks for all the feedback guys- glad it's come across well. yes i intentionally drew him sad as hes not been in any of the movies yet and theres no confirmation that he ever will be ( poor poor rodders). as for my pic putting yours to shame 'maninthebox' im not sure which one is yours. i'll have a look now though. however, i doubt mine would put any to shame- ive liked all that i have seen so far. the computer generated rodimus w.i.p in particular looks like it's got a helluva lot of potential.

    i agree that my pic was maybe a little too influenced by the classic rodimus toy, but its only because its my favourite figure. just looks sssso perfect.

    to make up for it im trying movie wheeljack now and it's far more original and movie-looking then this rodimus. i presume that if my wheeljack ends up looking better then this then i can swap entries right? If not no matter, Id happily enter rodimus.

    cheers all

    oh, and the close up design of rodders face that i never got round to inking looks even more like a cheetor. prob try and get round to inking it and adding it t the pic as the current head doesn't look as movie like as i didnt want to make the face look too messy by showing all of its parts in such a small space.

    thanx guys.
    id imagine that Bay would use a ferrari for Rodimus. That is if such a small character (leader of the autobots) could be in the movie when Bay loves the micromasters (blackout, barricade etc) more.
    Haven't seen the new movie YET but didn't Wheelie get on screen whilst Rodimus still hasn't? Oh Bay... I love ya, but damn you!!

    It looks good,something like that would work in the live action movie universe.

    Never thought to mention the weapons for 'Rodders'. On both arms the pipes are twin flamethrowers. in his right hand is an 'energy saw' that can be used as a hand held weapon or throwing weapon. When not in use it would sit between his forearm and the car panels attatched to the arm. When the blades are spinning, they can excrete energy/energon (like a catherine wheel) that enables it to cut with more ease. The blades can also lock in place so that it can be used as a simple grappling hook for both modes.
    Also, he has his gun/exhaust that the 'classic rodimus' figure has as I'm not very original.

    I've got the design all drawn in rough. Just got to neaten it all up so I should be able to show the pencils tomoz. He's got missiles coming out of the rear lights that are situated on his shoulders (a nod to the rocket launchers on the g1 Wheeljack's shoulders). Plus the bonnet makes up the lower legs like g1's does and the arms make up the rear of the car.
    He's also gonna have interchangeable tools that attatch above his wrist for fiddley scientific creations.
    the car is a 'arash af10 2009 concept car'.
