    This is becoming a very patent-filled weekend :) 

    http://www.allspark.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=3471&view=findpost&p=71330

    Lots of cool designs found. G1 Unicron (including transformation!), Powermaster Optimus Prime with a jet mode, triple-changers, a Brawl/Onslaught hybrid, an awesome demolition base, and more. And lots and lots of bad ideas, too, including a Micromaster centaur, Transformer headphones, a dragon/bus Transformer, a 6-changer with an ostrich mode, and Transformers that turn into *humans*.

    That ostrich six-changer is better than the ones we got, IMO.

    And that tank/ambulance triple changer is awesome!

    You have to click the "original document" tab and scroll down.

    Yeah, or click on "original document" and then click the "drawnings" link that come up on the left side of the document. Sorry I wasn't clearer about that :)

    OK. I can't view any of these. The PDFs just won't load. If anybody can snag the pics and just post 'em I'd be forever greatful.

    It asks me to save something, and then theres nothing. The document it asks me to save is a PDF file, and I don't have Acrobat... could that be the problem?

    Some very interesting designs, though I think I may have saw some of them in that Japanese TF history book awhile back.

    I open it up and it states, "Cannot find file" and lists a bunch of numbers. And I have Adobe.

    All good until I click on drawings: "The specified file: blahblahblahblahblahblahblah does not exist". :(  Yes I'm using acrobat 7.

    Another picture request here too please.

    I believe it has to be opened *IN* the site. I had to do some massive Adobe updates. So we'll see what happens. If I can view it, I can throw up pictures. Wish me luck.

    The ostrich thing is a little odd. Wouldn't minda a toy of it though..

    Edit:

    Tank Ambulance guy is kinda neat..
    Jet Bike bot looks interesting
    Horse/car thing is crap
    The Centaur thing is kinda neat..
    Dino/car triple changer is kinda odd.
    Dragon bus is odd..
    The Headphones guy looks like Soundwaves mentally challenged brother.
    Notepad bot looks interesting..
    Dragonwatch is pretty bad ass

    OMG A Pencil/Pen bot!! Kick ass!!! Office Wars!! That would be cool. Soundwave could be a copy machine! The little square guy looks like a Post-it note pad. Take that and the Notebook guy from earlier and you got yourself a toy line of office products!

    anyone else get an Animorphs vibe from the TF human bots?

    I went to the first link in this thread, picked an interesting link on that page, clicked it, and it showed up in a new window. I didn't do anything special, I have up-to-date adobe and I'm using Firefox.
