    It looks good, but his neck and the blue section on his chestplate are really bothering me. Perhaps if you had opened them up and painted the details inside and left the clear pieces as-is?

    Great paint apps, but I think the balance of color is off. I think I would have done some quick paint overs/concepts in photoshop before deciding on this particular color combination or stuck to something closer to this:

    or this:

    I think the problem is the purple legs and chest are so dominant that it takes away from looking menacing or intimidating. There is also a lot of negative space on his cheast plate which is so bright and large that it draws the eye. Maybe an autobot logo to break that up might be a nice touch. The neck in dino mode is also throwing me off a bit. The particular hues you chose seem more appropriate for something the seacons may have, and not a dino like Trypticon or SG Grimmy which are less saturated and darker. Instead of blue go for green which is a closer compliment to purple.
