    As can be seen in this post here, a comment by kendragon hit me with a sudden bout of inspiration.

    I now present to you, the Autobot Breakthrough:
    [​IMG]

    Bio & Tech Specs:
    Breakthrough’s wings are actually repulsion field generators which he uses to create powerful shockwaves that can throw Decepticons, or any other object he wishes away from him with incredible force. He generally uses this ability to throw enemy soldiers out of formation, creating openings for his fellow Autobots to breakthrough the Decepticon battle lines. Once, he was attacked by the Decepticon Bonecrusher, and as he was about to crush Breakthrough’s wings, the generators overloaded and threw Bonecrusher five miles away. Being the first and only Autobot to ever escape from Bonecrusher’s grasp, Breakthrough is convinced that he’s on borrowed time, and Bonecrusher will catch up to him sooner or later.

    Strength: 4
    Intelligence: 5
    Speed: 6
    Endurance: 7
    Rank: 3
    Courage: 7
    Firepower: 4
    Skill: 4

    Oddly, the hardest part of his design to decide upon was what I wanted his face to look like. The rest of it came to me much more easily.

    It's a nice start, but I think there needs to be more plating on the limbs, the legs specifically. Probably the best thing about drawing movie characters is how easy it is to cheat. You can just throw metallic rectangles onto parts of the body and it'll fit in completely.

    Thanks. And, I could probably add some of the bus seats to the unarmored parts of his arms and legs to cover them up a bit more. I already used four of them for his knee pads and elbow pads, anyway. Originally, I had figured that with a large portion of the roof of the bus tied up in making the wings, he wouldn't have as much of the bus exterior to cover him up, and that most of the seats would be inside the torso to bulk it up a bit more. Being a bus, though, there are seats a-plenty to work with.

    Looking at it again, and comparing the seats on the knees and elbows to the tires at the shoulders and hips, I do beleive I have a scaling issue in there

    Well, 3/4 of the roof could go into the wings, and the last 1/4 of the bus could cover the legs

    Yeah, the comment made me chuckle, as well. And then this idea smacked me upside the head and demanded I put it to paper or it would break my legs.

    Be my guest. I'd love to see what you could do with it.

    Thanks. When I was drawing it, I noticed the similar placement of the wings in comparison to Bonecrusher's spikes.

    Thats really cool, great design!

    ...Now make a figure that transforms and we'll be all set :D 

    Also, I'd hate to see the massacre of what happens to the people inside the bus when he transforms..

    Of course, it's only reasonable that it was an Autobot, otherwise Bonecrusher wouldn't have exploded it :D

    I can only imagine what went through his head on that stretch of road.

    "Hey, was that Optimus that just drove by? Who's that coming up behind me...oh crap..."
