    hey I finally added an alt mode pic and I got my ass in gear to colour it. Actually I started with the alt mode and the goal was to turn it into a tf. the colours changed a few times while I was colouring it. At the start it was reds with a black car body then greens but finally I ended up with this rat rod look. Also huge geek points to who ever can recognise the pin up on the side.

    I love the design, and your illustration is top notch as always. :thumb 

    I've got a character named "Nitro", so of course I like the name. Hopefully, I can be excused as not seeing this character as "Nitro" because of that :lol 

    I would love to see this design (and the many others you've made) in toy form. That'd make my day fo sho! :)

    We totally need more classic auto Transformers. I know there have been a few, but we need a lot more.

    I love this design, and your colors are incredible.

    Very cool. I especially like the painted crest on his forehead and his mauser

    Also, his quilted interior parts that you can see are a nice touch.

    Awesome design dude! The top of his head makes me think he is wearing a bandanna. Gives him a street thug look. :D  No idea on the pinup, but I did notice the "84". It looks like there is another character in the pinup? Looks like Slimer, or a pokemon. :lol  Then again, the scale is very small, so hard to see all the details.

    Its loosely based on Tess Darrett from that old Pole Position cartoon so that's about as obscure as I can get when it comes to homages.

    Love it! If you want to color up Leadsled and post him, it would be cool with me, he would go well as a partner with this guy.

    Nice! I'd actually like to see the alt modes for a lot of your character redesigns as well.

    might give it a go as it might be good just to do it as promo stuff at some point. Hey if you want to use this guy I can work up some sketches to help explain the transformation.

    Nice reminds me of the Micromaster Highway Recon Patrol. (Usually I don't much care for Micromasters, but the 50's ratrod bots were an interesting idea that could use just this sort of revision.)
