    Decided to make this thread after seeing people repeatedly talk about theamazingspino in my alt mode revamp thread; and who can blame em? This guy’s art is amazing! (pun not intended) so why don’t we give this guy his well deserved time in the spotlight?

    Theamazingspino's Transformers designs are some of my favourite that have ever been done in the franchise. Not even just the designs themselves but the aesthetic as well really lends to being able to have different designs for ever character like as if you were swapping over from different continuities.

    What are some major reinventions of his you guys like?

    my favorite is powerglide being a former decepticon conehead who defected after falling in love with a human; I also like his sixshot that seems to take after prime soundwave

    That isnt what Shockwave actually looks like, he isnt twoface, he just wanted to show off the two alt modes and two bodies of Shockwave at once

    If and when I own a third party company after lots of years of experience with CAD and finishing school, I'd make these a reality.

    His designs are easily the spiritual successor to the "reinvention era" like the classics 2.0 toyline designs. It's that type of creativity I wish we'd see again.

    Spino damn good. I've already praised his Megatron design, but I'll do it again: that A-10 alt mode is the perfect Earth mode for him - it's literally a gun with a plane built around it. Optimus's new semi alt mode works rather well - it's more traditional than some of the reinventions, but the accompanying transformation diagram really makes it stand out - using the sleeper cab's forward windows for the chest windows is very creative, and it allows the actual cab windows to be repurposed elsewhere. My other two favorites are the Omega Supreme and Trypticon redesigns - that's the best Omega Supreme I've seen, and Trypticon plays his Godzilla inspiration to the hilt and makes it look damned goood.

    For example: here's the purple shockwave in full 20211002_214321.jpg
    The gray "half" was just to showcase how he would look with that gray alt mode and compare it to the purple, like how he showcased his Prowl/Barricade with a similar lateral split, but it isnt a literal two-face scenario

    I hadn’t seen the A-10 one before, but if it’s new that’s probably why. I also completely agree and have been saying the same thing about an A-10 making the most sense for a modern Earth Megatron. Would love to see a 3p version of it since I tried to make one myself a while ago but ended up having to sideline the project.

    Anyway, my favorite designs by him are:

    -Powerglide

    -Tarn and Roller as Megatron and Primal
    upload_2021-10-2_21-46-11.jpeg

    -Waspinator
    upload_2021-10-2_21-42-14.jpeg

    -Tarantulas

    -Sky Lynx

    -The Stunticons

    -The Combaticons

    -Dirge (and the Coneheads)
    upload_2021-10-2_21-49-30.jpeg

    -Springer

    -Sandstorm


    And then some other stuff for y’all to look at in here:
