    Transformers: Return to Cybertron The Mini-Series

    [​IMG]

    So, for the past few months i have been working on something. It all started with the Doritos ad competition, when i found out it was US only. I had ideas and enthusiasm and that's why i was very sad at first. But then i thought: Scrap it, i'm going to do my own thing. So i decided after some thinking to make a mini series, set after the events of the Bay trilogy.

    Here's the synopsis:
    20 years have passed since their last battle with the Decepticons and the Autobots have peacefully settled on Earth. But as a way to rebuild their home is discovered and old friends and new enemies arise, it’s time for Optimus to decide which is more important to him: the fate of the Transformers, or the future of the human race.

    ***
    We're looking for more people who want to voice characters in the movie; also, if you are good with Maya, 3DSMax or other 3d modeling software, we need help with the design and modeling of the characters, as it's too much work for only two people.
    PM me if you want to help!

    Here's a work in progress shot of Optimus' alt mode. It's a mix between Bayverse and Prime. Critics are welcome! :)

    Here's a rendering of Optimus Prime's head.

    Special thanks to @Nyarlahotep for letting me use his Boombox Bust as a base and inspiration for my design.

    Nice. My only problem is the "cybertron or humanity" thing has been done 3 times now.

    Well, yes, i agree that this has beem a main plot point of most TF stories, but i wanted to put things a little differently this time: not having the helpless people totally depending on the autobots, but have them actually fight and kill for their planet. I want them to be equal to the transformers this once (but not in the sometimes stupid way that Bay used the army though).

    I'm liking what you're doing so far. :)  Are you going to put up a list of Autobots that are going to be in the movie?

    Thanks. :)  I decided that to have 10-15 characters in the first episode would be pointless, as it would take too much time to model them before i begin with the real stuff. So in the first one i will have 3 autobots:

    • Optimus Prime
    • Bulkhead
    • Ultra Magnus

    As the plot progresses more characters will show up to have a shorter production time. The same is with the decepticons, but i still haven't completely decided who to have at the beginning. For now i have Cyclonus, two types of Vehicons and two very important characters, which i am not going to announce for now. :D

    Wow, that looks nice! Just wondering, you'll have music and voices, yes? I was curious as to how you're handling that stuff.

    Well yes, of course. It's not going to be good without them. But i am still pretty early on, so i haven't thought much about that.
    Since i have no idea how to compose music, i will either use tracks from the Prime and movie soundtracks and edit them a bit. Or i could create a simple theme and ask someone with more knowledge to expand it. Either way, there's time.
    Voices are a bigger problem, though, because i depend on other people for that. I will wait until my idea gets more popular, so then it will be easier to ask people to voice different characters. So for now, i don't have anyone in my voice cast.
    But if anyone wants to volunteer, you can write to me here and on tumblr. :)
