    Hello, everyone. Today, I'm presenting the first character (and leader of the Autobots) from the next TV Show (fan-made): Transformers: Vanguard!

    Hoping to release in the first half of 2014; Vanguard will be a completely CGI show that takes place on Earth. Though this may change, ten episodes are currently planned to be produced. (The series plan is much longer; but I gotta work with what I have)

    It follows the Autobots (led by Ultra Magnus) and their human allies as they fight against the Decepticons (led by the evil Megazarak).

    More details about the show; as well as auditions for the voices of characters will be posted later today in the Transformers Video Discussion forum.

    But now, without further ado, I present, Vanguard Ultra Magnus!

    I would love any critique that can be offered; and if you'd like to request a particular pose, I'll see if I can do that for you.

    Also, if you'd like him for a signature, avatar, or wallpaper, let me know, and I will produce one of those for you. :)

    forgot to ask, when you say Megazarak, you mean Scorponok ? or that Armada Megatron Megazarak ?

    And is Vanguard some sort of followup of Operation Darkheart ?

    The Armada Megatron Repaint.

    Vanguard is not connected to OP:D H. (It also does not affect production of that in anyway; that's still coming out next year).

    Sadly not at this time. Much like the models in Transformers: Prime; the Vanguard characters require a model made for each mode.

    Since my Legacy movie still takes precedence over Vanguard, it will be some time before the vehicle mode, and other characters themselves, are modeled.

    Dude, how can you not invite one of the biggest UMagnus fans to see this? He looks very awesome! I can't wait to see the animation. Always nice to see a change in leadership instead of Prime all the time since UMagnus did it back in TF Animated. Don't forget to PM me when the project is completed.

    As for pic request, I would like to see a stand straight position of the front, side, and back just to get some ideas of the robot. After that, can wait for the alt mode.

    Well, like I said, it's going to be awhile. We're hoping to air in early 2014.

    But, as far as the pic goes; I can totally do the front, back and side shots.

    (And to the other member, I will try and do a disco pose, :D )

    Thanks, man. It's mine too. While the Legacy models go for a G1 Cartoony look; all of the Vanguard models will be going for the straight-up (Decently) high quality modern look.

    I always wanted to do a Warcraft III Transformers mod. The style you've got going here would be perfect.

    After seeing this post; I read about it. Looks like a distinct possibility that I could help you out once I have more time. :D

    With the full view above, now I realize you based him on the DS UMagnus. That's one cool design since I always wanted it as toy instead we got the Prime retool FOC Magnus. Can't wait to see the animation.

    Thanks, so much. And it's Autodesk Maya.

    Legacy: Operation Dark Heart is being made with Maya 2011; and Vanguard will be made with Maya 2013 (For the first four episodes at least; then it might be upgraded to 2015).

    How can you afford that???

    I've got an old copy of 3d Max lying around somewhere. But I haven't got a clue how to use it.

    Maybe I'll stick to writing music lol

    Since I'm a student, I'm able to use the free education versions. Hence why both projects are 100% non-commercial.
