Gigatron- Beast Wars Future by NickOnPlanetRipple Gigatron- Beast Wars Future by NickOnPlanetRipple
Behold, Gigatron. I put a lot of time into the bot mode's design. Really wanted it to steal the show. His beast mode is based on the Toraton, from The Future Is Wild. I know, right? How crazy is it that even the animal has a Megatrony-sounding name? I swear I didn't make that up. And with a neck like that to perform as the obligatory "my face is arm and/or fusion canon," he's a monster.

There have been other attempts at turning a Toraton into a transformer, but they're.... well, they're BW Megatron with a new skin. Still purple and "YESS" and pointy as hell. And that's great, but I wanted Gigatron to be his own man, not just another Megatron wannabe. So I went for a slimmer, more muted and streamlined look, not as loud or immediately threatening. Basically he's hiding his power level to get you to lower your guard.

Aaaand that's all of the main cast!

Well, at least he interchange between beast mode head/weapon and his regular robot arm, and that's something a few canon Transformers characters CAN'T do.  

I've been trying find the correct term for Gigatron's beast mode.  At first I was a bit wary of the Predators leader transforming into a large herbivore, but after seeing him in action (as well as the score of hidden weaponry), I'd say that it fits him well.

I gotta admit, I was unsure whether or not I could like Gigatron having a Toraton as an alt mode. But it's actually grown on me over time. Then I came to realize if Bowser can be an evil turtle, so could Gigatron. XD

I liked the Future is Wild series. Got a couple of their DVD's.
