    BEAST WARS : FUTURE CAST LIST [11/25/2009]

    Format: Original Beast Wars name - pre-Earth name - BWF Earth name

    Maximals :
    Optimus Primal - Optimus Primal - Optimus Primal
    Rhinox - Dicerox - Rattleox
    Rattrap - Rodentrap - Poggletrap
    Cheetor - Jubator - Gryketor (and later, Feral Prime)

    Retrax - Retrax - Retrax
    Tarantulas - Tortulas - Spindulas
    Injector - Injector - Injector


    CHARACTER DESIGNS:

    The following list is the cast of characters and their design level status. If a design in marked "Complete", it's just that. If a design in marked "Pending", then the design has some level of finish.

    However, if a design is "Pending", that character design is certainly open to other members to take a stab at a design since many of these characters have an unchanged status of design. Please be respectful to those who have already contributed to even some level of design status. If you begin a design that was already "Pending", just note that the previously committed artist may already have a certain direction with that character and design. Coordinate your efforts. If you can reach the artist who already committed to the design you wish to work on, try to contact that person or persons originally involved. Also, those who are already active on this project can help as well in this thread. ~Superquad7

    Here is the list of all characters created thus far, with the status of the designs and/or name changes that may be required:

    Format: BWF name (original name) - alternate mode

    • Terrorsoar (Terrorsaur) - Deathgleaner (completed design: Altitron)
    • Tidal Wave - Rainbow Squid (completed design: evilratbat, Rodentus Prime)

    * * * * *

    There were a few characters drawn in robot mode that had no discernible beast mode attributed to them, such as Polar Claw and Snapstalker. Well, Polar Claw did have a beast mode... but we have too many Grykens and Snowstalkers as it is (Cheetor, Primal, Tigatron, Polar Claw, /and/ Silverbolt). There are a few other characters that share beast modes as well. Should these be changed so that we don't have so many repeats? I'd like for there to be more beast modes per character... let's brainstorm on some alternates for these guys.

    Also, the '(*)' beside a character's name means that I: altered the name and am still not completely satisfied with it, don't agree with the name or beast mode used, believe there may be an error in what I've written down, and/or would like to see a better name given that reflects the new beast mode (in the case that a character's original name was derived from their beast mode).

    I'd like the team to field some suggestions, so let's get to it!

    RAMHORN:

    Ram Horn is a certified psychopath. He chose the alternate mode of the grimworm - an animal that makes its living by eating the rotting carcasses of other animals from the inside out - because he can relate to their methodology. Ram Horn lives to burrow inside the mind of his opponents and tear them apart from within. He also refuses to repair, replace, or upgrade his equipment and chassis unless specifically threatened by Spinkadacon with the weight of a reprimand behind it. This is because he feels that each nick, scratch, potch mark, and scar are personal marks of glory that ought to be displayed, like badges earned for exceptional deeds accomplished. These marks define his history, his ferocity, and his character. Ram Horn feels that these 'badges' are just as much a part of him as any rotor, servo, or piston.

    In battle, Ram Horn weilds a veritable armory of weaponry against his enemies. He can effortlessly deploy over a dozen artillery cannons simultaneously, along with a set of swords larger than most standard-sized Maximals. For close-quarters combat, Ram Horn employs an odd, double-bladed weapon comprised of two separate, large knives joined together by a thick handle running between them perpendicularly.

    SCROFANOK:

    Scorponok has been reformatted, much to his own dismay, as the torpid, unassuming scrofa. Due to this deficiency, he is prone to rash and erratic behaviour in order to prove his superiority over the other Predacons - this often results in his being promptly scrapped and left wondering what happened to him from within a CR chamber. He has developed a bit of hatred, jealousy, and envy towards Spinkadacon for the Tripredacon's ability to turn a similarly feeble beast mode into a powerful killing machine in robot mode.

    TERRORSOAR:

    Terrorsoar is a very efficient and unrivaled killer. He, like Spinkadacon, prefer the intimate violence that comes with the mastery of the sword - a thrill and emotional rush that only master swordsmans can ever come to know and appreciate. Terrorsoar employs no major ranged weapon systems, but he has been known on occasion to throw his katanas at extreme distances to impale his opponents - and at an alarmingly high percentage of accuracy. Defensively, Terrorsoar boasts unmatched speed and agility, as well as a small cache of chaffe grenades, flares, and other effective countermeasures.

    Alty, could we please get an update to your initial post with a master list of which characters have their designs finalized, the artists credited to them, and which characters are pending? For example:

    Completed designs: Rodentus Prime; Altitron, et. al

    Pending designs: Quadimus Minor, Superquad7, et. al

    Unclaimed designs: Quadatron

    We don't need a dump thread of 750+ posts. It's too cumbersome to search through. One of the problems with the original thread is organization and user interface. The Radicons Staff has been working relentlessly with reorganizing all things in Radicons, from Customs to Fan Art. The Customs and Fan Art Galleries are two examples of these intentions and efforts.

    Speaking of which, if you're designing anything (such as the sketch above), you need to start a thread in Fan Art, then hyperlink the thread in this Discussion Thread.

    Hey man, it's totally cool :thumb  I simply want this project to be the runaway success that it's intended to be and certainly can be. That being said, being more organized this time around as well as utilizing the new multifaceted Radicons will assist very much in this. Also, keep in mind that the Radicons Staff very much want this to happen, so we're here to lend any support we can :) 

    Also, I still want to design a character just for fun :D

    The main reason I closed it is that it's gotten to the point to where it's an organizational nightmare. I did add the link to the first post in this thread, that way anyone who's involved doesn't have to go hunting for it every time.

    I'd also recommend the following:

    • Only attaching the image, as posting it in line in the post makes this thread a lot longer, thus making the user interface less user-friendly (i.e. scrolling).
    • Making a project thread of ANY work, then hyperlinking them to this thread. Alty, you're doing this well, btw (major props).
    • Doing what we can to keep this thread a bit more streamlined. The previous thread DOES need to be cleaned, but guess who gets the job of that? :lol  750+ posts is quite a bit; I don't want the workload doubled :lol .
    • I already posted the comment about the list of finished/claimed/unclaimed characters, etc. I think that would really help.
    • Cross posting the actual story in "Fan Fiction", then linking to this thread.

    As always, please discuss and offer suggestions. I'd just like to reiterate that I'd like to see this "reboot" of sorts really take this project sky high :)

    Awesome work, Alty! I think we're at a crossroads where the preliminary work (character concepts and the like) should be done. Time to march forward, Radicons! :)

    Again, great work man; it's much appreciated :thumb 

    I've also went through and organized the list. You'll find that the character list is now alphabetized and in list format for additional ease of browsing. We'll further refine the list as we find out what pending details and such are waiting. I'd like for those who have committed to work already to show some sign (such as posting in this thread) of update, even it's a simple "I'm still working on it" type of post. Hopefully, some of the artists who have already made commitments will chime back in.

    With the designs reaching their final stages, once we get a "yay" or "nay" from the artists in the pending list, things will be reopened for ANY Radicon to jump in to finish up some of this work. Also, once stories are developed, we can then move on to sequentials. A few general ideas I've had so far:

    • Smaller, character-focused stories, much like the Transformers: Mosaic project.
    • Shorter stories that have overarching events.
    • Variety in art styles.

    Of course, that list of ideas isn't exhaustive. Feel free to discuss! Go, Radicons!

Alty told me about the new thread so i figured i would throw at ya some of the stuff i have completed. Ima a little apprehensive about posting my art here because you guys are all such talented artists, but heres what ive got.Whether its used is up to everyone.

    Jazz_00 i love your design on dead end its absolutely amazing.

    Antagony,Cyber shark,Injector, Projector(Although he doesn't fit into the Beast Wars universe i really think thise design, if executed better would work nicely),Retrax
