    I normally only draw things from G1 and my own timelines, but here we have a character based squarely in the Cybertron/Galaxy Force universe.

    Funnily enough, he came to me in a dream, hanging on a self rack alongside a TF Titaniums Steamhammer, a deluxe size Crumplezone and Ransack. (No, I'm not quite sure what it was all about either...)

    It was such a vivid image of a Cybertron Deluxe complete with colour, alt-mode, box art and even name that I just had to draw it.

    Thus, may I present Monitor:

    And a rough guide to colour:

    Doing this has got the old mental cogs whirring, so expect a few more Cyb/GF characters in the near future...

    nice conceptual designs there. I have to say that the robot mode strikes me as being similar to the Minicon Astrocope from Transformers Armada, particularly the head, though some influence from Shockblast/Shockwave can be seen as well.

    Very interesting design there. For a second there, I thought it was a remolded Brushguard.:D 

    The upper half does have some Shockwave/mecha vehicon like influences, but I still dig the shoulder cannons!

    Cool, I like it. Although, I think a little more in terms "expression" on his face is needed. He kinda looks like a drone there. Maybe give him more of a defined head? *shrugs* Up to you, but it looks great.

    Ooooooooh. Non sequitur homage to an obscure Beast Machines supporting character. The design is really neat and the concept is very, very awesome. I'd buy one for 7 dollars!
