    Yes, Spidercide is terrible. Fantastic! I also would agree that Starscream is definitely a main protagonist of Armada, probably even more so in Micron Legend.

    Edit: the go-kart :D

    I'd be remiss not to do full redecoes of Starscream's mold-mates from the Armada line. Starting with Thundercracker, who's far more iconic as his upgrade towards the end of the series (and the form in which he died and never returned):

    armada thundercracker.png The retooled Skywarp (new head, cockpit piece, VTOL fins) and his personal Mini-Con, the self-interested Thunderclash:

    Yep. Cybertron Starscream is great, up there with Animated Starscream as one of the best takes on the character ever written, but he's impossible to reconcile with the emotionally conflicted character we see in Armada, and given all the other inconsistencies with the previous shows present in Cybertron I prefer to think of it as its own continuity. And the less said about the Energon cartoon the better.

    Thanks!

    You're welcome.

    I'm gonna drop a hot take here: Regardless of the quality of the toy, Hot Shot's design in Armada is great. His fairly beefy sports car mode translates nicely into a football player physique, and the racing suit and flip-down goggles give him distinct characterization. The Axlezooka... compromises the entire toy's design, but at least it looks super cool.

    Also some Bionicle stuff from a while back! Designed partially in conjunction with my friend Agatharights, I've got some redesigns of the old Toa Mata, characters who hold a great deal of sentimental value to me. First up: Lewa, the Toa of Air, my first set ever! I reimagined him with a lemur-type physique that emphasizes mobility above all else, up to the point that the traditional axe (or axes, plural) are downsized to tomahawks. On top of that, Lewa's got eternally green leaves attached to his mask, "facepaint" if you will, and membranous "wings" under his arms that enable him to glide.
    lewa redesign.png Onua, the team's spiritual leader and the guy who tends to show up and save Lewa from mind control at the last possible second. Drawing a lot of inspiration from his portrayal in G2, here he's a massive, slow-moving mountain of a man, his imposing stature contrasting with his meek, introspective nature. His claws have a bit of wear, like an excavator bucket that's been used enough to start chipping off paint.

    As in canon, the two are close. (Draw your own conclusions as to what he's reading.)

    Red Alert, chief medical officer of the Autobots, his Mini-Con partner Longarm, and their assorted redecos:

    Another Bionicle redesign, this time of ZAKTAN, the terrifying leader of the Piraka.

    zaktan redesign.png
    His body, consisting entirely of constantly moving Protodites, allows him to avoid or outright tank practically any physical blow as he is functionally an amorphous hivemind, able to reshape his body at will. His voice sounds like a chorus of many all speaking in unison, only serving to further dehumanize him. Of all the Piraka Zaktan was always the most competent, most enigmatic, and most sinister, being the only one who really understood what the Antidermis was. Where all of the other Piraka were shortsighted and constantly scheming to stab one another in the back, Zaktan planned long-term, and canonically got the last laugh when he was resurrected as the Golden Being, an amalgamate comprised of all of the other Piraka with only his consciousness at the helm.

    Canonically speaking, Zaktan is terrifying.

    But he also made excellent practice for drawing Skakdi, which was a challenge I had been putting off for far too long.

    Zaktan was my favorite of the villains in that arc. Nice.

    For the sake of experimentation if nothing else, I decided to try redesigning something a little... different. Squadron X.png
