It's a shame Six-Gun has never shown up once in any of the IDW comics, Even as just some background dude blasting stuff. Such a cool looking character. Well apart form the old toy of course. lol

I remember this unfolding on Twitter, I wanna say over the weekend of TFN 2017? (seeing pencils then inks etc)

You're a demon Alex :P

You can tell you had a lot of fun doing this one though, overboard or not. Genuinely inspiring stuff chief!

Ah! That wasn't long after TFN wasn't it?

(To be honest I have to check what day it is four or five times.. so I'm surprised I recollected that much :p)

This is just amazing. Also, I like that you drew Slammer based on one of his third party figures.

This is so perfectly well designed and well over perfection. I’m overly inspired by this

Outstanding artwork of the mighty Metroplex. Btw, who's the white robot next to Six-Gun? I don't recognise him.

I can't remember.  The person who commissioned the piece wanted on of the 3rd party characters that was created for Metroplex.  I think it's one of the Iron Factory ones? I can't remember right now.

This is the Autobot City bot Metroplex from the 1986 toyline. Unicron is the orange planet-sized Transformer who devours planets.

Metroplex and his component robots are perfectly captured well thanks to you, markerguru.

One of my favorite G1 Transformers.  Love how you included his crew.

Of course. A very nostalgic one. I actually had Metroplex as a kid, So this reminds me very much of those days. But funny enough I never owned the original Optimus Prime G1.

I'm sure the person that commissioned this one is very pleased.

Yeah, I had Metroplex and Tripticon as well.  

I think he like it a lot.  I ended up going overboard on it, so he got a lot more in it then what I quoted him for.  Not a big deal, it was fun to work on and he was great in waiting a extra day to get it :)

Ah yes......
I did pick up the IronFactory 2-pack of the "Not-SixGun" and "Not-Slammer" myself.
(Dunno why HASBRO didn't include them in the 1st place)
Still want to get the sticker set/repo label set from Toyhax for both of these guys.

I recall that there was another 3rd party manufacturer that made a much larger "Not-SixGun"
that this newest Metroplex could hold....but I forget who it was.
Ah well, I couldn't have afforded to get that one anyway.

Cool pic.

I'm going to assume that's a robot-mode version of Slammer on the left...?

The robot-mode version of Slammer is actually inspired by a 3rd-party set of figures by the company Iron Factory, known as Turrets (Sixgun) and Manacle (Slammer). Turrets and Manacle were legends-scaled versions of Sixgun and Slammer to go along with Generations Titan Class Metroplex, but they came packaged with so much 5mm compatible weaponry that they wound up being a really fun stand-alone set even without Metroplex. And yes, Iron Factory decided to give Manacle (Slammer) A really great-looking robot mode.
Iron Factory has gone on to make a lot of really high-quality legends-scaled figures, most of which have better engineering and articulation than most voyager- and leader-class figures these days. Some of their stuff is borderline-masterpiece levels of quality. They're pretty much my favorite 3rd Party Transformers company ever.

Sorry, that explanation went on a bit longer than I thought it would...
