    I gotta say, that would've looked pretty cool on the big screen.

    Agreed.

    If they were to od G1 designs for the movie that would of been the way to do it.

    It looks great as an art peice, but I don`t think it would look as real or organic as the movie bots. But that`s just me.

    Still cool though.:thumb

    The painting is AWESOME!!! I love it. They could have used such design esthetic for the movie, then all of us G1 lovers would have died and gone to heaven.

    i like the top half of his body, but i'm not really diggin' his legs. the feet and knees are a lil' too simple for my taste and his thighs are kinda thin. other than that...like i said before, it's a great update to the g1 design.

    kudos for putting a human there for size comparison :)

    Thanks guys. :) 

    For the legs, I've been searching all over google for proper backend bits, couldn't hardly even find images of the rear of trucks as if you type in rearend truck and even backend lights etc, all you get is front/side view pictures. So all in all it's a bit of guesswork there and it was also the last bits I did, so they're ever so slightly made under the "F****** finish already gaaaah xP"-attitude. ^^" They upper legs are indeed also a bit thin looking, you're not the first to comment on that. That's due to last minute changes by lengthening the upper legs by about a quarter length (!), which screwed the proportions a bit. >.> It's a poor excuse I know, but meh, took me a month to get it this far in the first place. :p
