    You should put that gif on youtube with some classic transformers background music in a long video (3+hours) be awesome to use for roleplaying background sounds or just relaxing to.

    Look at that. Bumblebee making time with Spikes girl...

    Edit
    Hmmm, seeing as it's such a simple (relatively) bit of animation have you tried adding in stuff like lighting to it? Here's a lighting test I took a few minutes adding to your gif...

    It's a bit full on, but you get the idea.

    Ha, that's a great idea! Not sure how you make YT vids that long, but I'll look into it. However it might troll my subscribers into thinking I've made hours of new animation :lol 
    Nice work! I may add something like that, perhaps a bit more subtle (less school disco lol). Wish I'd thought of lighting when I took the pics, I could have done a bit of variation.
    Cheers!

    Ha, yeah, DISCO DISCO DISCO DISCO. I coulda turned down the opacity on the lighting layers I suppose. I think it's a recent side effect of playing a lot of later Sega Saturn games like Duke Nukem 3D, Quake and Burning Rangers... Their lighting effects look like that.

    Yeah, it's not like they didn't already provide the option with Inferno or Grapple. After around 40 releases using the standard insignias, TT suddenly go toon only for Megatron. Makes ZERO sense.

    Haha, actually the FPS's on Saturn weren't bad at all... well that's a lie. All the Lobotomy FPS's on Saturn weren't bad at all, I should say. Duke Nukem 3D on Saturn was better than the PS1 version!

    Also bearing in mind my Modus Operandi of trying to replicate the toon rather than reinvent it. But a bit of flicker and whatnot would finish it off nicely if I do a longer YT edit.
    :thumb 
    Cheers!
    Thanks, don't worry I'm very close to finishing the latest one!
    It's a rather striking omission, which actually makes me hope they have a more traditional deco version w/old insignia release lined up for Megs...

    I expect a version with "toy accuracy" where his inner legs are red, inner arms are red where possible, and he has a chest with the normal insignia and chest swirls, then a black helmet and SILVER paint.

    Never been keen on the girly swirl pattern of the G1 toy's chest sticker, and a black helmet sounds more like a Marvel comics deco, but the rest (basically as per MP-5) sounds good!

    So anyway, here's some Soundwave running action. Those Ark corridors all look the same!

    I would expect them to have a chest swirl option and black helmet to replace the "I still function!!!! " accessories.

    Not only do they look all the same, but they take forever to get from one end to the other :p

    If they're optional that would be perfect!

    Ha ha, it's one of those where (hopefully) you don't notice the join...
