    Oh ok, I always looked at the gestalt as more than the sum of their parts and the actual character themselves, that's why I dug Zone and the combiner wars cartoon. To me the individual parts were like the dogs the ducktails crew fought or generic cobra soldiers, they looked cool but they were just cannon fodder till combined.

    I have always viewed them as a separate character but I also need to like the components because that's where most of the personality is.

    Understood, I'll say this, menasor had a hotrodder/greaser vibe and for my money superion was spot on for a bunch of airforce bros, ever been in a room full of air force bros? Boring AF.

    But they weren't air force bros, they were just some jerks who idolized the Decepticons who's leader was the most generic trope ever for Transformers. "I turn into something that flys but I'm afraid of heights."

    Hey man, that was some deep characterization work in 1986. Jets that are afraid of heights, that's Shakespeare by 80s cartoon standards. Remember that was an era where if there was more than 1 token black character one of them had to speak in rhyme.

    You say this is project is 0 effort on your behalf, but based on your prior works: this is probably the best we can expect.
    I mean, did it really take this many projects for somebody to mention masking tape?

    First of all, congrats on working with actual plastic instead of cardboard. Second buy some masking tape. Third thin you paints don't just glob and spread. Get water soluble paint and always have water around to use.

    >self cenetered show off
    >Nerd who relpicates tatics he reads about
    >Guy who has to overcome a constant fear just by the nature of what he does and puts on a facade of bravery and courage so he can do his job well
    >Guy who enjoys rushing enemies with head-on attacks
    >Guy with his head in the clouds litterally and metaphorically causing problems for everybody around him.

    Yep totally the personality of a one dimensional edgelord.

    I watch the cartoon not read the bios. I can't really get my hands on any of the comics.

    And in that case you'd still know that Slingshot is an arrogant show off considering he was one of the only characters invovled in an etire episode.

    So if he is a Nihilist and you agree that he is then why did you insist I'm wrong and that he's just depressed.

    The chance to WHAT exactly? this is a hobby that generally takes time and research for people to get good at!
    From what I can tell, you take no time for something that needs a butt-load of time
