    I've been sort of playing around with different ideas I've wanted to see in future TF series, and eventually got enough I started doing up my own designs. It just started as messing around but then I imagined the character directiosn I'd like to see, and wrote those down. Then I started writing stories about them. Now I've got all these character designs and bios laying around and figured I might start showing them around maybe.

    This is my Optimus. I originally thought "What if Animated Optimus was kind of an asshole?" And I ran with it, making him less heroic-looking, more blue-collar but not overt. Mostly in the chosie of alt mode. I'm not good at drawing trucks, cars, jets or any vehicle. So they're not gonna be too hot.

    So, yeah. I have other designs I might toss up on here. Actually I have like eight. Hehe..

    the torso reminds me of Machine Was versionof Optimus Prime. Quite rare to find references to MW

    Thanks, man. I don't have many drawing programs. I use Macromedia flash.

    Thanks. Yeah, I took cues from Machine Wars for a few designs. His head is modeled sort of after the MW design, too.

    I don't get it. He doesn't look like Ultra Magnus.

    Thanks! Glad I could impress!

    Nice work. I like the idea of Optimus as a tractor tow truck.

    That's a really cool design. You can tell who it's supposed to be, but at the same time it's it own entity, with a personality that comes through very clearly. That, and it is really just very aesthetically pleasing. I'd love to see what else you've done.

    To me it looks like Ultra Magnus from his design and colors. And I like him as such! ;)

    For some reason, it feels like it could make a decent Ultra Magnus design. One thing's for sure, I definitely wanted to see that truck as movieverse Ultra Magnus (only white and/or light blue, of course).

    But don't get me wrong, I like it. It's a nice refreshing concept for Optimus. If he was ever a bit of an ass (like you said), this design captured that. :)

    Awesome. I really like this direction for Optimus. I'm getting a very Animated Sentinel Prime vibe. Based on your description and his design I can imagine him starting out as a jerk and growing into a wise, respected leader over the course of the series. Not sure if that was your specific intended direction but the design definitely conveys that personality.

    Can't wait to see the rest.

    It's really nice to see a different interpretation for OPtimus, but I can't pull away from the Peterbuilt truck.
