    Now that I have you're undivided attention, :ev:  excuse me while I whip dis out!

    Several people know about this, but the vast majority of yall don't. For months now, since March 12th to be exact(wow, that's to the DAY 4 months!!), Lazerbeak and I have been on a mission. I came to him with an idea of an original, all new Transformer. I wanted to change my username to the character's name, as well as have him in my signature picture and as my avatar. I've even gone so far as to start work on a small website with all sorts of technical info, background info, and pictures of this new TF. For those of you unaware, I posted two versions of this character's Background story in the Storyboard forum back in May. Many read them, but few responded to help me decide, so I just went on my own. This story will be on the website when its finished, but for now you can go to the storyboard forum and look up "A new Autobot Awakens", even though he's since been changed to be a Decepticon(both versions are there as stated earlier). Anywho, the avatar and the signature picture are both still in the works, but the actual character is officially finished!! So, without further adeu, its time to introduce everyone to our new character. Let me just stress one more time, Lazerbeak put a TON of hours into this, and he dubs it his greatest work to date, and I REALLY REALLY appreciate all he did for me! (It really really was worth that Alt. Deadend ;) )

    World, I give you: REDLINE!!

    :lol  isn't it?? :D  The sad thing is, I don't think this picture will hold a stick to the final signature pic that LB's working on... we mixed our different ideas together for it, and I think its gonna be FAwesome!!

    He's a combination of both Hot Rod's and Springer's Sparks. He IS a Decepticon, like I said in the first post, If you want to read his background story, either go to the storyboard forum, and read "A New Autobot Awakens". There's two versions in it, Autobot and Decepticon, and I went with Decepticon :thumb  OR you can wait until I finish the small website that will be linked from my sig! Thanks for the comments guys! I've been so stoked about this character for such a long while :)  Now I just need to find someone who can actually kitbash this baby hehehe

    Hey all, I'm extremely glad to see that you all like him. It was a true labour of love, my toughest and most complete digibash yet. I don't wanna toot my own horn, but I'm very proud of this guy. He is the result of months of planning, brainstorming, and 'bashing, and I'm quite happy with the result.

    I wanted this one to be nothing short of perfect, so no shortcuts were taken. I used only the best donor pics, and whatever didn't work, I made it work. All in all, this was an excellent project, a great challenge with grand results! :thumb

    just a quickie: I've finished the website for REDLINE now as well, it can be found by just simply clicking on my signature picture. I put a lot of work into it, there's a page with his background story, a page with detailed info on his weaponry w/ pics, and also a page with not only a techspec graphic, but other miscellaneous info concerning REDLINE, like engine specs, quotes, pics of his alt, mode, etc. I will update the site here and there with new things, like a full-blown story and photoshopped pictures of REDLINE in various scenes as time permits. I hope you enjoy! :thumb  If you have any comments or criticisms on the website, either post them here, or you can PM them to me, I'd appreciate them!
