    Hi all. This is another fan-made character I'm working on. Haven't come up with a name for him, but his current codename is T-bot (turtle-bot). Below are three digibashes I've made. The first one is in an Animated theme, the second is a more Classics/BW-ish theme, and the third one is a Movie theme. I'm going to work him into my current fan fiction (which I'll be working on in the next week as it's spring break for me). I'm thinking about making him one of Ironhide's younger siblings, and for the Animated version, giving him a similar armor to IH's, but with a flaw that he still needs to overcome (something IH got over already). Haven't really had a chance to work on my current WIP's, but I should be able to get some more work done on them in the next week. A bit of a hang up is my dull coat seams to have gone bad somehow. It now leaves a white haze over everything. The cold might have gotten to it, I'm not exactly sure. I've got a big update coming shortly to my 3D Grimlock thread. Thanks for any comments. If you have any name suggestions, feel free to post them.

    Thanks :D  Ever since I first saw Ratchet's Cybertronian alt-mode, I've though it looks like a turtle/tortoise. Any opinions on the colors? Was trying to go with something different, that would look good, and would work well for a turtle alt-mode.

    Oh, and if anybody has a BW Snapper they don't want anymore :wink:

    Cool that T-bot is orange. I like the molds for though, but I'll think of some names for him and I let you choose which one you like.

    Thanks. I'm going to try and come up with a couple name ideas myself.

    Looking at Animated Ironhide again, he's more orange than I remembered him to be. Might end up changing T-bot's color scheme, might not. Going to see what he looks like in some different color schemes. Won't be hard now that I already have three digibashes I can fiddle with :D

    Cool. Well I think the orange is unique, but its your call. One name came to mind Shellhead, but I'll let you know what else I've came up with.

    Yeah, the orange is more unique. Interesting name, I'll keep it in mind. On a side note, it's slightly hard to try and think of a turtle-themed name without including the word shell in it somewhere (not a bad thing, just an observation).

    Nope, well, as far as I know there wasn't.

    Interesting ideas, I'll keep them in mind.

    You're welcome. Another interesting name, I'll keep it in mind. Will probably start putting together a list of name ideas.

    It'll definitely be a bit of a long list by the time I make a final decision on the name, lol.

    Interesting ideas, I'll keep them in mind.

    I'm thinking something to do with sheild/armor powers would be interesting. Kinda like a cross between Animated Ironhide's power, and Animated Sentinel Prime's power. That in mind, I'm thinking the final name will probably have something shell related in it, lol.

    Their all cool and all, but I dig the orange. Why I think he might be your Wheelie. LOL But seriously thats my opinion.

    Yeah, the orange is pretty good. It is a bit Wheelie-ish, but to me, that isn't a bad thing (I don't have a problem with Wheelie). On a side note, I hope they actually do make an awesome Deluxe class Wheelie. He'd be the perfect base for a Classics version of T-bot. Then the one that actually turns into a Turtle could be a Beast Wars version of him.
