    With a crash, a bang, some scrolling text and a suitable fan-fare, it begins again! :D 


    With the ideas of the fandom collected and the internet extensively searched, I am proud to present the first of this new wave.

    Your thoughts welcomed as ever. :thumbs2: 

    Trailbreaker: Republic Dropship

    Cindesaur: Demolition Droid

    Wheelie: S-Swoop (this of course is after he's spent several years with a Swoop biker gang and grown up a bit)

    Here's another. Sorry about the quality of the picture, our scanner's messing about again.

    For a better look at the alt mode, go here.

    Falcon: TIE Phantom

    Why, thank you.

    Some more predators:

    Snare: TIE Defenders

    Retrorocket (I can't have another Skydive): TIE Advanced

    Nochaft Unleashed

    I HATE Sith always being filmed with red lightsabers. They were Jedi once (some anyway) so why change and its the colour of the focusing crystals not faction that decides what shade the saber is. So here's one using the Force practically as well.

    Enjoy! :thumbs2:

    Sith LS are red because Sith use synthetic crystals, which are more powerful. But because they aren't natural, they come out red.

    Now you mention it, I think I have read that somewhere.

    Oh well.

    This way, the pictures are more intersting and colourful.

    To take stock of the Predators, we have a massive air commandant, a young upstart who seems to have swiped GF Screamer's swords, a murderous sniper, a scientist wielding some Gizmo of Doom(tm) and, hopefully not last or least, an advanced aerospace warrior.

    Talon: Chiss Claw Craft

    I really, really want to draw Stalker, but I haven't a clue what to reformat him into. Anyone got any good ideas?

    As compensation for this shoddy lack of finallity, here's a very lovely Autobot as well:

    Elita 1: Naboo N1 Fighter

    Enjoy :thumbs2:

    More from the front! (well, from my sketch book anyway...)

    Krok: Cloak Shaped Fighter (don't know what, don't know where from but it looks reasonably good)

    Windcharger: Orbitblade-2000

    Mindwipe: Imperial Escort Shuttle

    Now the fleshie here is one Professor Vorat, a scienist working on the Hamerfall Space Sation, base of the Imperial/Decepticon alliance. Not nice and the mastermind behind the Empire's 'Master' program... Imperials controlling TFs? Someones in for a nasty surprise...

    Chromedome: Imperial Light Hovertank

    With General Styles. I said 'control', didn't I...?

    A reference website worth looking at...

    Alright, so I've done him before. But hey, I've never drawn him in full Sith Master act. With Nochaft, awaiting the chaos his companion is about to unleash. I'd run if I were you...

    Cyclonus: Sith Infiltraitor

    Thank you :thumbs2: 

    To keep the ball rolling, here's a little sonic superiority...

    But not who you think...

    Stalker (At last!): Imperial Beta-class Assault Shuttle

    I really need to put a disclaimer 'NO Death Star-Unicron switch - banned for being bloody obvious yet completely impractical.'

    :thumbs2: 

    I just want to keep the big U out of it for a bit. I have PLANS.

    The X-wings were in wave 1 but I may use them again.

    Anyway, down to business:

    While the WWI version of Ratbat was good, I always thought the attraction was that he didn't have a humanoid mode yet was still a cunning leader. So I kind of mixed the two versions together, added a dash of Starwars and came up with this:

    Ratbat: IG-2000IG-2000 (the ship of IG-88, the droid bounty hunter)

    Sorry about not drawing the alt-mode but I couldn't face it.

    Story Spoiler: RB will be in charge of a new faction...well, nearly in charge...

    Blitzwing: TIE Bomber/ TIE Crawler

    OK, so I cheated and bulked out the crawler mode but, hey, Blitzwing needs to be tough :thumb

    An update, and about time too!

    During my holiday in Scotland, I found time to sketch two new Autobots...and come up with some ideas about what to do next...


    To business:

    I left the alt-modes out of the pictures, partly because I didn't think I could fit them in, partly because I wasn't sure I could actually draw them acurately...well, there's my excuse and I'm sticking to it. :redface


    Getaway: Snowspeeder

    Cliffjumper: T-16 Skyhopper

    [​IMG]

    There's a joke somewhere there about Cliffjumper now being a Skyhopper, but I'm too tired to make it at the moment...

    Enjoy :thumb
