    Back when Marvel comics was publishing Transformers, they created a character called Circuit Breaker. She hated everything transformer related and tried to fry them with her electrical powers (due to a childhood accident involving some TF's which caused her to get her powers)

    while most of us would say "awesome, i've got superpowers", she instead went nuts and ran around buttnaked attacking autobots and decepticons.

    so a little while back i put some thought into revamping her, then IDW got the rights to TF and taking that into account, i tried to give her a harder edge, and make her british, as you can tell by the Union Jack on her outfit and boots

    for the fans you can still make out circuitry lining her body, but due to todays medical makeovers, it's barely visable

    Nice, but draw her from the front, as I don't think she's wearing a bra

    nice idea, I like the scene too, it's just, well, you might want to add something to her.
    Right now she just looks like a girl in a bathing suit with gloves.

    Downplaying the "circuit" motif on a girl named "circuit breaker" may not have been the best judgement call.

    reillyd - i'm happy to do commission work

    MACRAPTRON - thanxx dude, you picked out the best bits :) 

    KA - get it posted

    Cataraks - i couldnt dissagree more, the original design was over the top and lacked any subtlety, i prefer the idea in the modern world that there would only be a few surface "visable" circuits" while others would be entangled within her body. I have alot of happy fans all over the place who dig the design, so thats good enough for me :)

    I like the downplaying of the circuits. The gloves are a bit much though.

    A few errors.

    It wasn't a childhood injury, she worked for an industrialist who's oil rig was attacked by Shockwave. She was some sort of computer whiz-kid but they said she was about college age. She got "fried" by feed back (like on Star Trek, when the ship gets hit it makes desks explode :tongue:  )

    She didn't get her powers then, but she was crippled from the waist down. (much more realistic than the Spiderman cliche')

    She then spent every waking moment building an exoskeleton. It had very unique properties; it was very flexible and resembled duct tape when "off", it provideded a neural network that allowed her to regain the use of her legs, it allowed her to generate bio electric blasts (how it was powerfull enough to hit Unicron? I don't know) and to generate an anti gravity field)

    As for that pic,,,, nice assssssssembly! Assembly! That's what I ment to say. :confused2 

    Love to see a frontal view though.

    And I don't see what being British has to do with anything.

    ShadowPrime - thanxx dude

    KA - good going, keep at it

    as to why she's british, the british armed forces are still the best to this day, guess we are just good at getting things done cleanly, and it looks like she totalled those TFs to me

    I could be wrong, but I thought it was more than that...like more from the neck down since I seem to remember her taking off her "cyber tape" and her arm went limp in the comic. I can't remember though if she couldn't naturally move both her arms or just one without the "cyber tape".
