    I really like this idea. It'll be one super detailed piece when complete. Are you gonna give it a humanoid face or Movie-Megatron-pineapple-anus face or something in-between?

    Good luck man!

    Interesting work on making the component pieces into limbs. It looks like his arms might be a little uneven, but so far I'm really liking this project.

    But "Ruffian"... isn't that a little mild? It's a bit like calling him "Scallywag" or "Miscreant". :)

    It's not the meaning of the word I dispute... it's the connotation and common circumstances of usage. "Ruffian" is the kind of word that an effete gentleman intellectual or 17th century swashbuckler might use, and therefore seems like an unlikely name this team would give themselves.

    Going with "Ruffian" may make him sound sort of unintentionally comical. It would be like calling him "Scoundrel" or "Uncouth-atron". Despite the meaning of the word, it makes him seem less than serious or frightening.

    Because he's made up of police vehicles (including an autobot traitor), perhaps a word that is more often associated with police corruption or martial law would be better? Crackdown? Bluesteel? Oppressor? Aggressor?

    I don't know. Just my 2 cents. :)

    i read alot of books... but opressor, i like that sounds ruthless, but they are like a little gang, tho decepticon corrupt is disruptive by habit and can tople any organization for the inside out .no real ties to the decepticon cause they will pray on both side for gain and or work with undercover. 2 of them can pose as autobots maybe 3.but i feel you.
