    So there's Toxitron and there's my sketch, now there're colors in two versions:

    (Less Busy)

    I embellished a little. I tried to move this guy far, faaaar away from Optimus Prime in terms of looks. The green and purple certainly helped though. He's been dirtied up a good bit, which is me just messing around with different brushes and techniques. The slime's definitely the fun part, and designing some chest and shoulder stickers for the guy (they're not clear, but they're molecular models).

    Dude needs a lovingly half-assed bio, too. Let's set it in Universe since that line is returning.

    Toxitron
    "Everything is fuel for the fires."
    Function: Maintenance

    Toxitron is a chattering, clattering monstrocity that has dwelled in the deepest depths of Unicron for eons since being plucked from his own universe. A brilliant chemist in his own time, Toxitron became fascinated by the digestive mechanisms of Unicron. However, he became the victim of Unicron's nigh unavoidable corrosive processes. Driven mad by the constant wasting away of his body, Toxitron's only way to slow the process is to devour the unlucky denizens of Unicron that might find themselves in the wrong place at the right time.

    ...

    Yeah, I'll write a better one when I come up with it. Preferably something that mentions why the hell he looks like Prime.

    Here's a question:
    Can everyone see them okay? I've been having some server hiccups today and it's driving me a little nuts.

    Since everything and anything new that's not Animated-related will wind up under the UNIVERSE banner, I see no reason why Hasbro cannot slip this guy in the new UNIVERSE line and sell him to us. Heck, even as a store exclusive. I'd DEFINITELY buy this guy.

    I missed out on the ToysRus Exclusive R.I.D. Scourge! :cry 
    I want another chance to own this mold!

    Rhode Island TRU's did not get many of them in to begin with. And at the time, I was too short to reach the very top shelf where they were all hidden behind the flip up banners. I never saw them out on lower shelf displays.

    Well, at least I got the Spychanger of R.I.D. Scourge.

    I dig it, especially the less-busy version. His pose kinda evokes the Evangelion with the similar color scheme--very creepy.

    I'd really like to have the guy just because I have a taste for the ridiculous. It'd be nice if the Fan Club released like a Spychanger Scourge in those colors just as a throwaway or something.



    Other ideas I batted around in terms of bio, if you all are interested (all in Universe, hence Unicron all over):
    -Leader of the evil Autobots abducted by Unicron who's just a walking container of gooey doom and always has been.
    -A psycho Decepticon living in the depths of Unicron who is obsessed with becoming Optimus Prime and devours any persons he comes across so he can use their parts to continue his "evolution" into "Prime".
    -Unicron's maintenance crew (a la Nemesis Prime); There are many, they live around the smelting pools that handle Unicron's digestion, and look like Prime to sucker in and eat lost Autobots to keep them from interfering with the digestive process.
    -(My least liked) An alternate RiD Scourge wherein the scanned tanker didn't contain rocket fuel, but nuclear run-off. He's suitably twisted, albeit remarkably driven to succeed. He'd also be continually losing limbs and reattaching them.

    Also...

    Fun Fact #1: I originally sketched this up as a header for a "Toxitron's Tales of Terror" one pager (a la the Crypt Keeper, with Toxitron picking up a half-eaten Autobot arm or something, then kicking off the story), hence the rectangular format. I didn't have any good story ideas worth putting to paper, unfortunately.

    Fun Fact #2: This image took me longer to do from start to finish than anything I've ever posted here, even far outpacing the one-shots. MUST WORK FASTER.
