    Wow...Astrotrain is huge! Very Devastaorish. One question though, whats with the tank treaks on the back??? Is Astrotrain now a quad-changer with an added tank mode?

    Yeah, the treads seem kinda...odd...but other than that Astrotrain looks pretty neat! I'm curious as to why you made him a Con, though, as you say the name sounded more like a Decepticon than an Autobot, as Astrotrain has always been a Decepticon.

    Eh well I figured it would be appropriate that tank treads with seperate wheels for his alt mode was more right. I base this as his cybomode being a cybotronian train/vehicle but with several seperate wheels to add to his back that destinguish him from his shuttle mode. So he has only 2 modes, shuttle and robot, but his original cybertron mode is a train....

    The story behind it is a mixup scan while looking for a suitable mode..to kind of explain the name...

    Yeah he has heavy Devastator feeling but I like the way you did this character.

    *sigh* why do people keep saying he looks like Devastator, he looks nothing like Devastator.

    lemme guess... because he's got a similar inner turbine thing going on? uh, hello so does Scorponok.

    All I'm wondering is, Why is he got the pouty eyes? he's Evil lol

    awesome art though, no matter what I try I just don't have the patience for the movie asthetic.

    I think its the pose that has people saying it looks like Devastator.

    I really like this, though it'd be nice if you drew another one in a more straight forward pose so we can get a better look at him.

    alrighty, just a little criticism. Car destroying pose aside, I think he kind of looks like an Autobot if you know what I mean. All the movie Decepticons have a really jagged, brutal look about them, and i'm not really get that from him. I think its his head and lack of visible weaponry.

    Seems noone else noticed it about the head but he's got that General Genevorius look. Did I even spell his name right? I never could. Grr... Love it myself too. I might have to enter into this contest with so many good designs out there right now.
