    Well, he's pretty talented, you see. :sly2: 

    Seriously, he has an attention to detail that's second to none. He puts in all that kibble, little nicks in the body and so forth... for me, it's highly reminiscent of the toys and brings on this little rush of nostalgia. :) 

    Not only that, but he doesn't let that level of detail distract him from drawing a character and not just a figure. I could waffle on for ages about it, but basically for me it comes down to this:

    There's nothing so Starscreamy as Starscream drawn by Don Figueroa. There's nothing quite so Optimusy as his Optimus Prime. He doesn't just get all the details right, he captures the essence of the character too.

    That's why I love his work, anyway. :rock
