been a long time since I've added anything... Sadly working retail over the holidays has killed any desire to really sit down and draw something but now I've got some free time back I've got my ass in gear and this together.
I didn't want to change much from the original design looks wise but I wanted to try and work out a few issues mostly to do with how the train parts are shown and how the arms fold away.

I officialy hate my scanner.
Powered Convoy's repair bay mode. To modernise things a little I based the Convoy robot on the deluxe classics Prime. I like how you can see the wheels on his sides ^^
So before transformers, it was Diaclone. And this is powered Convoy. I always liked the Ultra Magnus toy, and the Powered Convoy original tops it!
I got a WST Ultra Magnus in Diaclone colours a week ago, and I can't stop fiddling with it! I finally found some pics on the internet that reveal the original Japanese Diaclone figure has a 'base' mode and a repair bay mode not shown in any instructions for the Magnus toy. If you have a G1 magnus, go play, all the intended modes are still possible. The only thing missing is his powered buggy. The original diaclone toy's 'Convoy' robot was a slightly lighter blue than that on the trailer, making him different than Hasbro's Diaclone Ultra Magnus. They made all the blues the same colour. For some reason I painted this Like Hasbro's instead of Takara's original.
The X-4 acts as an middle-close range assault unit and as support for the X-1 by providing cover firings. Attached to an armed module which armed with 2 large beam sabers, machine guns and grenade launchers, she is capable of massacre of a small company of enemies. One important thing is that this unit also serves as an ECM unit to conduct electronic warfare and jamming communications to 'cripple' the enemies in major battles.
Most of the time, the X-4 is paired with the X-1 to penetrate enemies in the front line and due to it's sizes, the X-4 has limited spaces for actions unless she detaches from the module. Nevertheless, she can still uses a variety of hand-wield arsenals to provide fire supports for the X-1.
This was one of the collabs in between and me, completed at Otakon.
was going for a hybrid design between the live action movie and Gen 1. I've probably got a few mistakes in here, since this is probably the first time I've ever painted anything for Transformers. Funny since Transformers was what got me into art as a wee little boy.
So that's Megatron in the back, and Starscream being pwned and missing a limb there. I tried to model parts of the Starscream after the F-22 but not in the same way that the movie did it.
This is the last of the pieces I had lying around my hard drive, so I wanted to finish her up. The character's name is Deaddrift, and she's Burnout's "reincarnation" so to speak, given new life by Unicron, but lacking nearly all of her memories. The original art piece of her was static, so I wanted to liven her up a bit and show you guys her weapon (s).

this actually started life as a pic of another decepticon team but it kinda went pear shaped. I was going to scrap it and start over but I looked at these 2 and I wanted to save as much as I could since their were some ideas I really liked.
As luck would have it face wise it didn't take much to change them to the DreadWing team so it was really more of a case of changing some details here and their. Also given the transformation everything was kinda in the same place.
bonus points for any one who can guess who they were originally going to be. As a clue their are some parts that are directly off the original characters toy's
