    so when does Vortex start talking to Fastlane 'bout how he'd (Fastlane) would feel if the humans started dying? :) 

    Also, do you have the music composed for series yet? If so, I'd like to download it so I can listen to its awesomeness :)

    Man, I'm not even involved in Vanguard's models beyond general opinions and I feel really grateful for your enthusiasm, so imagine how Galvanitro must feel.

    As a member of the Vanguard development team, I would like to reach out and say that I appreciate all the great responses you've all given us. We're a small team working on a big project that goes beyond what many people expect. A single nice word keeps us going a while longer.

    As for your question regarding music, our composer is Nick Randall, a really talented artist. You can find his work on his Youtube page, which I will leave right here.

    https://www.youtube.com/user/metallifan04

    I've actually happened to listen to his music before I even signed on to do Vanguard, a fact which I found really funny. His latest video, which is an orchestral cover of the Unicron theme, is a must watch, and should give you an idea of what to expect (Hint: The answer is pure epic.)

    Nick has actually started developing the music, but he doesn't have anything finished yet at the moment. Just another thing to be looking forward to, eh?

    Another interesting guess...

    Also keep in mind that upcoming models, such as the mystery Autobot, and Phase 2 characters can be ones already revealed. There's a mixture of brand-new, and known but not yet seen.

    Thanks!

    Somebody's been avidly searching, XD. Those were really old auditions back from awhile ago when I was first prototyping the project, and then deciding to take it back under the hood for another year.

    And as Optimegatron said, Shockwaved is working on it, but he just moved recently, so that's slowed him up a bit.

    And now for a Shockwave Update:

    How's the head gonna look? G1-ish, Prime-ish, DOTM-ish (please, no), or Animated-y (MERCY NO)?

    As you can see, the main inspiration for the vehicle mode is Prime-based, with a hint of movie thrown in there. The robot mode will be similar, but obviously we'll be putting our own twist on it.

    There's actually a really long debate going on about what the eye color will be.

    In the past, Shockwave has had four eye colors: Yellow or red, both of which have been used pretty much equally, green in Energon, and blue in Animated when disguised as Longarm. My suggestion(s?) would be to not use the blue, but use the other 3 colors for different emotions (Yellow neutral, Green positive emotion, Red negative emotion) or for different situations (Yellow normal, green for analytical use (i.e. to determine material composition, analyze experiments, and such) and red for combat). It would change color by just, y'know, changing color, or have the eye actually switch (if for different situations, yellow is his normal looking eye, green is a bit longer and a bit like a microscope and has three pupils like a microscope lens has three magnification settings, and red is a bit flatter and has crosshairs) by collapsing into his head and being replaced by the next eye :)

    Thanks!

    Prime is the closest; but I'm gonna be trying out a few different ideas.

    Very cool ideas. I'll think about seeing how they work with the design.

    But anyway, the important part of this post: Shockwave's vehicle mode is done minus paint!

    That is perhaps the best idea ever for the ever loved Computer on legs !
