    I got to thank Nizzi for bringing Megatron closer to his G1 counterpart, and for his damn awesome SuperPrime. Funny how one who got so acclaimed for his Long Haul fan art got so much flak for Jetfire, but I suppose it depends whether overall you like the direction of the character and I did, very much.

    I thought Jetfire was one of the best designs and characters.

    Makes me wish I had practiced drawing more. Or I need to start practicing again.

    Good read. I can't wait for Long Hauls toy.

    Seems like a nice guy..glad to see he got the chance to work on TF2. I like Megatron's design (although I didn't like the tank flying that smoothly :p , not his fault), and Long Haul was pretty awesome as well. Jetfire gets bonus points for being a Blackbird..I guess his robot mode is okay.

    Think I will have to pick his dvd up sometime..see if he included some segments on questions/tips I was having about robots.

    Good interview, I'm happy for Nizzi, definitely got a dream job. It's cool that Long Haul is the most "traditional" looking Constructicon too.

    Now the wait for the figure. I do like Jetfire's design too, just wish he and many of the new characters could have got more screen time.

    Actually, I like that each constructicon has a different look to them... the biggest problem I had with the G1 versions was I could never tell half the team apart.
