    got the idea for this guy in a rather odd place. After the news of the new Mech Warrior game I dug out my old Mech Warrior 4 games and addon packs and in one of the packs was a robot called the Kodiak that had some bear like qualitys and that got me thinking about making a Bear TF also I just like the sound of name Kodiak.

    I wanted to work in some wise man vibes since I wanted to try depicting age again and the name Kodiak gave off the vibe that the character would be some wise native American styled guy.

    other little things I wanted to do was try and work in transparent parts even if they might be a tad unnecessary.

    Transformation its rather simple. Start with the original primal toy change the shoulder pads so that rather then sticking out they swing round on ball joints. the arms are more like gloves to transform, Chest/Head is just like Primal, Legs actually take note from Alternity prime, the animal feet move out of the way and the taller leg parts swing in from the side, skert armour slides together and swings 180 and forms the back and under belly and I think that's about it

    Glassy, mystical and I would shake his hand...

    That cane looks too thin for his weight. The green and purple mix so well with the brown...
    What you added under the Bear head... it's just great.

    Great over all, man!

    I was gonna post about how cool this is, then I realized doing so would probably alert REDLINE to it as well. He's been totally into Mech Warrior as of late. Therefore, I can't post about the coolness.

    Hmm, the face with it's beard-like protrusions and the colour scheme are somewhat reminiscent of a Warcraft male Night-Elf indeed. Although the claw wraps are more like the Orc shamans...

    At any rate it's a good piece of work. I'm glad he had the cane because he looks a little like he might fall face first without it. XD

    oh wow, very cool. I like how the shoulders and the claws outside the hands really homages the original Clan Kodiak Battle Mech design. I think you should illustrate his alt-mode next, and then go and join up with the rest of us in the Mechwarrior Social Group!
