    i can remeber many many toys both past and current that have the same asthetic, including new versions of normally slim characters. also i dont see you making any transformers games, so if you cant do it better- Don't Complain.

    That Sideswipe design looks nice. I'm sure Sunstreaker isn't far behind.

    why not? Before Ironhides botmode and Warpath i haven't seen a single character design that i've thought was good (especially when you compare them to the extremely similarly themed War Within Designs, which i personally feel totally school the WFC designs.)

    I like my TFs to look sleek and powerful, not tubby and awkward. The whole character design aesthetic has just been very confusing to me. I just don't think most of the designs have looked very "Transformer-y" It works for Iron Hide and Warpth because it makes them actually look strong instead of obese.

    And i'm not slagging on the ARTISTRY, but the overall AESTHETIC. What's even more frustrating too is that i think the environments are amazing.

    (and i do work at a games company, and am an artist. ;) )

    I don't think I like this concept! They lack the essential component to a successful Transformers franchise: gigantic, metallic, clanging robo-testes. This game's going to bomb unless I can get teabagged by Optimus Prime, and I can't tell you how much I want to be teabagged by Optimus Prime.

    But these designs come before all that. This story takes place at least 4 million years before everyone upgraded to new forms, putting a little junk in their trunks to show age or some difference to what they may be how High Moon wants to go forward...

    Up until the 2007 movie came out, no one even remembered Barricade was even IN Gen1... As for protoform Optimus, ALL the protoforms were the exact same bot, reused three times, coz they didn't have the budget to do individual protoforms. Jazz, Ironhide, and Prime... all the same (says so in the audio commentary).

    Ummm... in the movie, Barricade WAS an afterthought... the character was going to be Prowl up until a "last minute" change switched sides. That's why he has Prowl's forehead crest. They just switched his eyes from blue to red.

    Ummmm.... *looks at G1 toys* They ALL have short arms, boxy torso, and too much yuck. If anything, it makes the game even MORE faithful to the G1 toys... It was the cartoon and comics that actually made "humanoid" figures out of most of them with standard humanoid limb-length ratios. Look at toys of Ironhide/Ratchet or Sunstreaker. Absolutely near zero playability, and horrible design, and turned them into interesting characters in the other media.

    Dunno about "fantastic" but I do find them very intriguing. I can't wait to see what they do with Grimlock. I hope they go the Typticon route and make him a mean-looking beast, and not a lame armored tank like War Within.

    Not a fan of obese bots either, but they do look good for the ones that you expected to be strong (Brawl, Warpath, Ironhide)

    We're not talking about the movie, we're talking about WFC.

    I just don't think that the design for this character looks all that impressive. I find it to be rather bland and uninspired in comparison to a lot of the other WFC character designs. He doesn't have the same presence that the other do. He really does look like nothing more then a namless drone.
