    These are a few concepts that I drew up as possible animated heads that I can produce sculpts and castings of. Please keep in mind that these are very rough sketches, and I am hoping this thread can be a collaborative effort between myself and those out there who would like to do some different characters for their Animated collection.
    As I drew these, I kind of thought of mini-bios for them which helped form the visuals. Some are obviously very close to their G1 selves.
    Trailbreaker: Defensive Strategist, very somber and serious.
    Hound: Easily distracted Earth-loving scout.
    Tracks: Pampered socialite who traveled in the same social circles as the wealthy Energon broker: Mirage. Not as image conscious as his G1 incarnation but still thinks he is better than most bots.
    Mirage: Extremely wealthy and intelligent broker in the Energon trade. His business accumen, smooth talking and exceptional intelligence made him an excellent candidate for the role of an Autobot double agent/spy.
    Smokescreen: Con-man, gambler.
    Brawn: Tough guy. Autobot version of the Constructicons.
    Sideswipe and Sunstreaker: Brothers, jocks. Athletic superstars on Cybertron before the Decepticon uprising.
    Wheeljack: Closeted, reclusive mad scientist, who was the mastermind behind the very first space bridge. Hid away when he realized any invention he came up with could possibly be used to wage war.
    Insecticons: Decepticon warriors that were altered by a process very similar to the one that changed Elita-1 to Blackarachnia.
    Please give me any feedback or ideas that you all may have. Possible molds to use would be helpful. Feel free to photo edit the pic, or just write out your ideas. I really want to get the best ideas possible, so that I can produce some heads that a lot of you will want.
    Please keep it along the animated theme, as I specifically want to get a good selection for animated fans.
    Thanks in advance!

    pretty cool. I think it could help you out if you were to look in the Art forum, as there's been some cool pictures done in there by Josh and BillyBadAss and others of some of these in the Animated style!

    I's suggest a femscream sculpt as everyone is already planning customs. Elita one, Iron Hide and cliffjumper might be good as well. Also the regular characters like Prowl and Bumblebee with battle masks.

    Skids is down as one to sketch up. Tekkaman Blade: Femscream is a great idea, as I don't see them making a toy of her. Elita-1, Iron Hide and Cliffjumper, are all ones that I have screen caps for, and will make if actual production toys aren't announced soon.

    A little off topic, but would it be possible to take the Classics Bumblebee head and supersize it to Alt size?

    I got a few ideas

    first of I hate how big animated BB's head is compared to the rest fo the deluxes. I know there are ways to shrink existing sculpts. I'd buy a smaller head that fit deluxe BB

    Those sketches look good and cartoony but I think they need bigger chins to fit the aesthetic of TFA

    They've announced an activators Cliffjumper with a new head so the deluxe one is probably already in the works

    Femscream is a really good idea too.

    There's my 2 cents! Good luck, you do some great work man!

    I'm still trying to figure out how to modify the animated starscream molds to look more female.
