    And here is my interpretation of Jetfire's old man...wheel...in all his honor and dignity...dammit! :) 

    Feel free to color him, guys! Lemme know if you need a higher-resolution pic! :D 

    (And throw some names out here, too - personally, I'm calling him Gyroscope, unless one of you guys has a better name.)

    Movie Scrounge!

    I really like this. I would like to see the robot parts look a bit less organic, though.

    But... didn't Jetfire follow up by saying that his old man transformed into nothing? DX

    Seriously though. nice work.

    To be honest, I think the more organic look fits him. Makes him look very old, like the Primes or the Fallen.

    Would have been interesting if Bay and Co kept designing Decepticons in the non-traditional sense (rather than bi-pedal and humanoid). But we did get some cool ones, like Demolishor, Rampage, and Clover-Con.

    You what's more funny? He looks like Jetfire! I can totally imagine them talking with their odd British accents.

    Some random biography for Gyroscope/Scrounge because why the hell not: As Jetfire's father, he was one of the first batch of transformers [after the 13], Gyroscope/Scrounge was one of the first scientists Cybertron ever saw, working alongside Alpha Trion, he focused himself on the revolutionary concept "alt-mode" concept he came up with, a technology to make the Cybertronian's life easier, his wheel-shaped body was not only an early prototype for alt-modes, but also the very first wheel Cybertron ever, he later perfected the alt-mode concept, and used it on the first Seekers.

    Patriotic at heart, he raised his son to fight for Cybertron as a Seeker, giving his son the fastest alt-mode ever created [at the time].

    Gyroscope was also responsible for adapting the Thirteen's teleporting power in the "Space Bridge" concept for the Seekers.

    He died on the early days of the Great War, when he refused to take The Fallen's side in the conflict, promting The Fallen to kill him off.

    His legacy lived on through Demolishor, Sideswipe and the Arcee Sisters, both avid users of his wheel-design.

    Exactly, he doesn't turn into a wheel, he literally IS a wheel-shaped robot, as you can see in the image.

    I like it, since the Fallen was sort of organic-y, so it stands to reason Jetfire's made-up father would share the aesthetic.

    Here is my coloration, since he is the first wheel I used a lot of stone age colors grey and black with some decepticon red thrown in.

    Nicely done! For some reason I chose to do him in bright gold-ish colors, but these colors work too!
