    I don't know about you, but the vast majority of comics I have seen on forums is an endless sea of sprite comics.

    They're very poseable, you can do fancy graphics with them (assuming you have GIMP), and recolorable. Plus, they're a great alternative for people like me who can't afford an endless supply of awesome TF toys. (Sigh..)

    So, following up on the above description, here is a kit that meets all the stated qualifications. I made it as movie-accurate as possible, spriting individual pieces and assembling them on top of each other.

    So yeah. That can help with a few comics. I have no plans as of yet to make the jetpack, weapons depot, TF1/TF2 design, weapons in general, his trailer, his truck mode, or his Jetfire upgrade, but anything is possible. Whether I make these or not depends on the feedback.

    Not very good, but you took your shot! It's good for a first try, keep on trying though. I say starting with G1 sprites, they'd be easier, when you master them, then try the movies.

    While I don't know much about it, it seems odd to me in that way it's made.

    How fancy.

    I think walktehdinosaur's sig explains his reply. XD

    Thanks for the feedback. I have some chibi G1 sprites (super deformed for fun) but I never thought they were worth posting on here.

    What parts need work, specifically? I can re-edit this thing.

    Perhaps I was a bit rude initially, but if you were to change it to make it more stylised to something easier for you, I think it would look way better.

    On another note I think it could use more parts to give the comic maker more to work with.

    Not a bad start. I would make his legs a bit longer in proportion to the rest of the body. Movie Prime's legs are hella long.

    Ok, I can probably do the leg fix. However, it is a bit stylized. Also, the sprite comics I usually see tend to use 10-15 pixel tall sprites. It's based on a Bionicle sprite kit called Chimoru. So, naturally, I had to squish everything into a small space and make it trishade.
