    Sweet, one of my favourite 'bots looking mean as ever.

    What tools did you use to create this?

    pretty cool, though I'm curious as to what has been changed from the previous version. All that is really coming to mind right now is that the colors have been altered and the lighting improved from past renders.

    Still an excellent piece.

    He's had a complete retexture, as it goes; also, the shot is 100% lit with an HDRI image.

    I like it a lot. One of my favorite transformers with nice textures, proportions, and overall looks. Looks very professional.

    You mean the lower legs, right? I started off by making the profile as a flat poly; adding/removing ponts as necessary to get the shape. Then I extruded it into a box, worked on the final shape, and bevelled it. Finally, I added the kneepads, ankle pieces, and inside leg details. I still need to give him working knees before he's ready to be animated; I keep forgetting to do that (I'll normally get the shape right first, then add details like that afterwards).
    Upper legs were easy; simply a box in the right shape, with a hole cut through it for the details, and a movable hip piece for the top.

    yeah.. the lower leg pieces I mean. more specifically the curved areas on the lower legs

    The silver gun handle pieces I didn't get off quite the way they should be.

    see on yours how the curved area's are chamfered there, but then it goes all wierd and doesn't come out right? you can see it on the curved parts. Mine sometimes comes out the same way. Do you know how to fix that so the chamfer comes out straight?

    I know im doing something wrong. sometimes after I curve the piece with mesh smooth or whatever.. if I go to chamfer it, it gets really distorted
