Currently it's still in development (AKA my camera's crapping out, a few vital characters have yet to be purchased, and my GIMP skills are mediocre at best), but I thought I could throw out a bit of info for feedback to see whether I'm on the right track or whether I should steer things in a different direction... Besides, I'm just bubbling over with ideas for this, if I kept everything quiet any longer I might have exploded. Or at least spammed up other threads talking about it. What I have so far is seven mini-bios and a very brief plot summary for the first big arc, all spoiler-free. Hopefully I won't have mods descending on me like rabid sharkticons for not having any visuals yet... ***** Designation: Elita-1 Gender: female Purpose: hot-headed main character Allegiance: Autobot Specialty: sniping, infiltration Figure: TFTM scout Designation: Arcee Gender: female Purpose: smart-alec main character Allegiance: Autobot Specialty: sniping, infiltration, diplomatics Figure: TFTM deluxe, first release Designation: Gali Gender: female Purpose: level-headed main character Allegiance: those she perceives as the "good guys" Specialty: melee combat, infiltration, tactics, seemingly supernatural powers, peacekeeping Figure: custom Bionicle meant to represent the character Gali/Gali Nuva Designation: Mao Chao Gender: female Purpose: energetic, naive main character; the "cute factor" Allegiance: as she has lost her memory, those who found and fixed her: the Autobots Specialty: melee combat, peacekeeping; frequently shafted with the job of "distraction" Figure: Mao Chao Busou Shinki figure Designation: Wheelie Gender: Ummm... *kicks Wheelie in the crotch* Oh yeah, definitely male. Purpose: comic relief; abuse magnet Allegiance: allegedly the Autobots; hates being one but knows he would be killed by Decepticons if he defected. Specialty: ummm... poetry? I guess he's pretty fast, too... Figure: Cybertron Legends Class Excellion Designation: Roodaka Gender: female Purpose: femme fatale; main villain Allegiance: To herself. Will pretend to be aligned with those she can profit the most from. Specialty: lies and deceit, seemingly supernatural powers, enormous endurance and physical strength Figure: Bionicle set Roodaka, currently unobtained Designations: Sideways, Rook, and Crosswise Gender: male, unknown, and unknown, respectively Purpose: all-around fourth wall breaker Allegiance: He tells others he serves the Great Devourer, which isn't referring to planet-eating Unicron... And I'm not telling you who it is yet, either, nyah nyah! Specialty: knows absolutely everything that is going on and even a good bit about the future, as well as seemingly being able to read minds Figure: Armada Sideways, Rook, and Crosswise ***** After an introduction period, Optimus Prime forms Elita-1, Arcee, Gali, and Mao into a special-ops team with the purpose of keeping Roodaka from aiding the Decepticons by any means necessary. This is the main storyline. There will be many non-sequiters and side stories, mostly featuring the Classics line 'bots and 'cons. Some quick previews of the funny side; we'll have some Pirate vs. Ninja rivalries, a few of the classic jokes such as Prime's a dick, and I'll be importing some jokes from my former comics such as pyromania and the adventures of a disembodied head (too bad Wheelie's is molded onto his body or it'd definitely be his). And now, I need to shut up, before I reveal absolutely everything. I'm gonna start trying to jury-rig my camera tomorrow until I can get a new one, with luck I'll have the first strip up tomorrow night.
