    Hey gang, sorry for the delay of this update. Work has been truly hectic the last few weeks.

    So, in my fourth installment of my Rodimus series, I have fleshed out a rear view of the Trailer/Battle Platform:

    As mentioned before, the overall premise of the Trailer is the same, but I wanted to make it bulkier and more heavy-duty. I've included a ramp that folds down, and can hang suspended up to act as part of a stretcher for a wounded Autobot to lay on. Standard targeting controls are built into the front portion of the module, and the Communications array folds down over the exposed area.

    Next, some ideas for Rodimus's head:

    Didn't change much. I kept the yellow crest that's prevalent in a lot of the Japanese G1 artwork from the Visualworks book and such (and also from his Energon and Classics versions). What I did add was side fins and the square panel on the back of his head. These features were prevalent on Optimus Prime, and I thought it'd be a tell-tale sign that Rodimus was a Prime, hence some alterations to his appearance to match his predecessors.

    Feedback is appreciated as always. My next update should have some leg and arm features.

    And links to the first 3 are here:
