    That's Manatronatee, according to Derrick himself. It's a manatee cassette. Also my twitter avatar!

    I think that's just supposed to be a lighting-related change to the color palette. His symbol would be red if he popped out of the water.

    Ok I'm going to say it..... is this news?.... (puts in flame proof jaket) its just that no one posts the awesome TPB covers and pencils from guys like Alex Milne yet a blog sketch gets a news post... I find that a real shame when you consider just how awesome some of the art is from artists who also have close ties to the official products.

    dont get me wrong I'm not trying to hate on animated or the artist but I'd like to see the same love given to the artists who continue to bring us awesome new stuff every month

    I'm going to see the Alex Milne covers when I order the TPB or browse through comic racks as it will most likely see official release.

    If someone hadn't pointed this out/reported it I would not have known Derrick drew a new Animated character which is both a manatee and a cassette.

    My life would've been infinitely more empty not knowing of this awesomeness.

    that.....is.....AWESOME!!!!!!

    I would so buy a toy of that. Too bad Robot Heroes is dead... Hell, I'd buy a Masterpiece figure of that thing, maybe even a 3rd party Robot Heroes-like figure (and I'm not a fan of 3rc party stuff).

    Anybody else want this to be the new "oh the huge manatee" picture?

    As much as I love Derrick and what he creates, unfortunately this isn't considered news. That being said, I moved it to TFGD for continued discussion on how this is more interesting than anything movie related I've seen the last two weeks.
