    "Wreck-Gar: His Own Worst Enemy"

    I've had this little idea kicking around in my head for years, but it was picking up his Reveal the Shield toy that finally gave me to push to draw it.

    Comments/crits?

    OH GENIUS!!! I love it conceptually, and you've executed it beautifully. Total Twilight Zone Nightmare-verse scenario!

    Thank you for the replies! I've actually made some changes based on feedback I got elsewhere:

    Thank you! I would claim it's a wry commentary on today's reality-show/YouTube/Twitter culture, but I'm pretty sure I thought of the idea a good ten years ago, before all that stuff had exploded. If anything, I was inspired by the old Marvel UK annual that had a story where Ravage was remote-controlling the Insecticons, and he accidentally got shot with a cerebro-shell, which trapped him in a mental feedback loop.

    Good eye! It's specifically the prototype deco, which was how I first saw him. I was disappointed when I later saw his final safety-tastic colors, since I had really liked the first version. So I'm happy to give his "unsafe" self a little life in my personal G1verse.

    HA! Recrursive Mind control, yeah I can see that being a brilliant source of inspiration. You should illustrate that one, even if it's official :) 

    You've always been one of my favorite TF Artists since your early MW stuff (I gushed at you as BWRatBat back then), and it's always such a treat to see new work from you! It's always this perfect blend of beautiful work and really heady concept. Very rare to have that mix.
