    Huh, both of our Shockwaves use off center turrets in alt mode. Interesting coincidence.

    Your models are all nicely done, it's easy to see how these could actually work as toys.

    Kind of like this for alternate eye designs/functions, but smaller and probably better done:

    Huh, neat. Thanks very much, I wish most of these could become toys, haha.

    I'm definitely considering at least part of your idea, combaticonsfrvr, :) 

    And here he is, the most logical Decepticon, in his tank mode:

    Might be able to start work on Roadbuster sooner than expected due to high availability of custom Roadbuster heads made specifically for the Cybertron Defense Froce Hotshot mold :D

    Sweet, combaticonsfrvr. Looking forward to anything you do with it.

    Heads up! Shockwave's robot mode will begin tomorrow or Thursday. Tonight, I'm working on Megazarak's animation test.

    Maybe I'll render an image or two from it, we'll see.

    Vanguard Morning Update: May 21st, 2014

    Gotten past some Animation Test hurdles, it's now progressing nicely. I will get as much work done on it today as I can, then tomorrow, I'll have what I've finished start rendering while I make Shockwave's robot mode.

    Also ready to announce that currently the prequel series "Tales Of The Great War" will have 6 Episodes totaling 48 Mins [thus it could be aired on TV with commercials as a one hour special].

    Across these six episodes there'll be one over-arching story arc and three smaller self-contained arcs. The first two arcs will be 12 Mins long; with the 3rd being 24 Mins long. Each episode will be 6-12 Mins long.

    Episodes 1 & 2 of the Prequel Series will comprise the first mini-arc and each be 6 Mins long.

    More details to come as we get closer to the first prequel episode's release in the summer/fall.

    and for the mystery Autobot do you mean like always-an-autobot autobot or can it be sometimes/briefly-an-autobot autobots?


    Hears a combined list of my guesses of both the briefly person and normal autobots :
    Wheeljack
    Scattershot
    Nosecone
    Lightspeed
    Afterburner
    Punch/Counterpunch
    Starscream

    Ha, very neat list, I love many of those characters. You'll just have to see after I finish Shockwave, I'll reveal the name.

    It's funny, I've got the models to be made in Phases 1-3 [The Prequel Series Phases] all planned out, but here you guys barely know Phase 1. So hard not to spoil the list and tell you guys all of them! ^.^ But I can keep myself contained.

    Thanks! There will be fembots; I'm using a rule of 1 Female for every 12 Males at minimum, but they'll still be a bit from now. I'll be looking at doing the first one in Phase 2, most likely.

    That rule is important to me, because I really want there to be female representation in the series and universe.

    ~~~~~

    The news I was coming to bring: 5 seconds of Megazarak's Animation Test is finished and rendered. For practice and test, pretty good if I say so myself.

    Question is: Do you all want to see the first five seconds as a preview now, no sound, or would you like to wait until the full 20-25 second test is finished [with lines of dialogue and other sounds from the voice actor]?

    The floor is open.

    The 5-Second Preview could be released tonight; the full 20-25 Second video won't be finished until Sunday at the earliest.

    I would rather wait to see more later compared to a little now. Love Shockwave's tank mode!!!
