    Folks:

    Let's pretend he's one of the ROTF Seekers so he's, like, relevant, or something. Yeah. An Autobot Seeker. Hmm...

    Anyway, I drew him off-and-on while I was sitting with my son, who was coloring. Boilertube transforms into a typical 1920s-era 2-8-2 heavy Mikado freight locomotive, with anachronistic and rather rare Scullin circular-hole disk-type driving wheels, fitted so I could turn them into rotary shoulder cannons. All his weapons are launched with high-pressure steam, naturally.

    I started with some vague ideas, but the design tended to take over, which ended up causing lots of overdone and unworkable kibbly stuff. :D  Certain features I am happy with, others not so much. I got bored while finishing up the altmode view, and it shows. :)
