    not necessarily

    Hot Rods alt mode could very well have been their [and by "their" i mean the people behind designing the chars] interpretation of how they thought Earth vechicles would look in the year 2005


    regardless, this is great!

    Rex is gonna love this!

    yeah, normal hot rod looks pretty darned earthy to me, so a pre earth mode like this makes much more sense :)  can't imagine he's old enough to have been around when WW was set, but thats just me getting nitpicky, i know WW also equals pre earth :) 

    anyway, nice work, it looks pretty good to me. look forward to seeing it textured :D

    i would agree, it is just that i have always prefered to think of it as his cybertron mode, same with kup and blurr, along with the headmasters/targetmasters, too.

    WW Kup wasn't, and he was even less earth-vehicle-like than Hot Rod.

    Excellent wireframe, Mr Ray! :rock  Can't wait to see it finished! :cool: 

    BTW, where do I go to find more of REX's sweet WW drawings? :dj 

    As for Kup, Don has already given him a WW treatment. :thumbs2:

    Actually, you're right. Hot Rod was supposedly unique among Transformers, as his alt mode was no different from him Cybertronian alt mode.

    Of course, I also agree with what someone said about character interpretation, too. This is pretty freakin' cool looking. :)

    i have to say, i've always loved hotrod though, and all the headmaster/targetmasters, they to me, were the highlight of the 87 year, and not guys like fortress maximus, or the combiners, but just those head/targetmasters. which i still prefer over the powermasters

    W'sup guys!

    Josh just directed me over here to see this, and I don't know what to say, besides...

    Bloody heck this is FREAKIN' AWESOME! :rock 

    Man, I'm really honored someone would render one of my designs in 3D. This is nice work Mr. Ray!

    Now I'd reeeeeally like to see it completed! :p 

    But really, this is really awesome... Really. :) 

    Thanks again man!


    here's the colored version of the drawing.

    I love the concept but, no offense, he looks old in the 2d scan. That wouldn't make him Rodimus Prime instead of Hot Rod? Bah, don't listen to me. your art 2d and 3d is great. Keep with the good work. :rock

    pretty good modeling, proportions are accurate and the design isn't too bad either (though I think the spoiler in car mode should be reversed).

    That said, you need to creat edgeloops in the face around the eyes and mouth especially if you plan on animating him at a later date.

    yea i know what you mean about the loops, but i dont really plan on animating him. I'm jus gonna give it a quick rig and do some poses for renders :p 

    Ive actually fliped the wings round and it kinda trasforms like the wst hotrod now, instead of the wings jus going up its back. It ended up giving a weired arched shape back. ive also leaned towards a normal hotrod head instead of the concept, he did look abit old, hope ya dont mind rex :p 

    Think im gonna give him the pinkish colour like the one in the the movie. Ive actually made a start on the texture last night, ive gotten so low :(
