    I went back and made some modifications to my first shot at classic oprimus prime. i went back and added some more detail. most of the corrections are more noticable in robot mode. will have pics of that up soon, for now, let me know what you guys think.

    It's good, the only advice I could add is to make it less toylike. The large hinges are required for the toy, but wouldn't be realistic for an actual robot disguising itself.

    I modeled it exactly after the toy itself. for a more realistic look i worked on the alternators. perhaps that will be the next version chaos.

    the character is not transparent, i think i have he reflection too high.

    thanks for the feedback though i appreciate it. here goes a few pics in robot mode. more to come soon.

    Dude, please turn the reflectivity of your shaders down. Nothing short of a mirror is that strong. With exception of that, you have a nice likeness to Classics Prime.

    Good job on the model, it looks great. But I agree with Star Cracker, your reflectivity is way to high. :)

    i'll turn down the reflection on the windows. the reason i think it looks so high is because it's a glass shader but i took off the transperancy. i'll fix it in my next batch of renders. there is one cool addition to this character that the figure doesn't have and i hope i can show you guys by the end of the week.

    Hey, I was wondering... which 3D program did you use to make that? He looks pretty good.

    Its called Softimage XSI. Pretty much the package Mainframe used for their shows. Though, they did Beast Wars in the older Softimage, XSI is the newer versions.

    Wow, they used Softimage? I wonder what Cybertron/Galaxy Force used for their 3D models?

    Galaxy Force was done in Lightwave.

    grimmlock, it might be better to just turn off reflections entirely on the next render. Out of curiosity, what renderer are you using? Mental Ray or XSI standard?

    Star Cracker, are you talking about the glass chest panels, or did you want me to turn off the reflectivity on the entire character? By the way I am using mental ray when rendering.

    I think reflectivity on the glass chest panels is ok.
    But I think you need lower reflectivity level on body.
