Out of all the hypothetical Beast Wars things, the one I'd like is a leader class Transmetal Megatron

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 11:18 PM)

They'd make a superb duo. If TT drew the line under BW MPs after those two, I'd be perfectly content.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 11:15 PM)

I personally hope we get an MP BW Megs, especially if he has a rubber ducky he can hold, yeeess.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 11:03 PM)

It certainly has, man. If it wasn't for BW I probably wouldn't be here.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 10:15 PM)

Yeah, I threw a link in the Beast Wars Birthday thread. I'm keen to hear as many thoughts on it as possible. The last month has proven just how dear to the hearts of fans BW is.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 10:04 PM)

I looked at it a few days ago, actually, I saw you post it somewhere here on the forums.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 09:43 PM)

No, they're certainly after their own ends. Cheers for taking a look at it, Smokey. I appreciate it.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 09:36 PM)

Well, at least you twisted things around so the Tripredacus council aren't minions of Unicron.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 09:30 PM)

With Primus and Unicron, it was my aim for it to double as a celebration of the 30th anniversary of TF:TM.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 09:27 PM)

It's... Better than Dawn of the Predacus, at least. I could do without the whole Primus v. Unicron thing, that's been done to death.

@  Pennpenn : (30 April 2016 - 10:25 AM)

Any particular reason it's not available in some of the ones I see more often like BBTS and TFSource and so on?

@summer, I was wondering why it looks like an ordinary TF group instead of being about TFWiki.

@  zephyrX9 : (30 April 2016 - 12:18 AM)

ok so either ages three and up sold out of victorion or their system is confusing so i guess im getting computron instead. rip my dream of ladybots everywhere

@  Summer : (29 April 2016 - 02:07 PM)

The TFWiki Facebook group has long since been abandoned by the actual TFWiki moderators, and there's little to no affiliation with the actual site.

Alligators are really scary, because they can eat you. But you know what's even scarier than alligators? Flying alligators. With laser vision. Scariest environment imaginable.

So, this evening, I got to thinking: we have some art of the team transports (the Mark 1 and 2 OmegaJets), but we have yet to have any indication of what the satellite itself looks like.

I wanted to put it out there for discussion, and to see if anybody might be willing to have a go at it. I was going to get in touch with somebody, but decided that I'd rather let the community itself see what we can come up with before I just sort of unilaterally had someone design and draw it.

So... thoughts? When you think of it at this moment, what do you see?

For myself, I kind of once again see an Omega incorporated into the design somehow. The satellite itself isn't bulky per se (like the pre-Crisis JLA HQ or DS9), but longer akin to the Watchtower.

Ideas from everyone else?

EDIT: Also, a name for it. "Omega Guardians Satellite" is too klunky. Something cool and flowing like "Watchtower", "Panopticon", or "Avalon" (a satellite HQ belonging to a friend's group) have nice flows to them.

A good name, especially since it's the Hall of Heroes in Norse myth. But I'm afraid it's kind of got the same overtones as setting up our guys on a base called Olympus. I was hoping for something simpler, but Valhalla is certainly something to keep in mind.

Rough basic shape for my idea, going to refine further but I was trying to go with what you mentioned about incorporating an Omega symbol into it ursa! There would be solar collector panelsall long the 'middle base' of the symbol, hence the left side drawing.
Finally a sign of artist block going away. X_X

I think you're on the right track. Maybe watch the dip in the top arch of the omega shape though. We don't want it looking like an orbital version of a popular chain fast food joint. icon-arcee.gif

Well if we go for Omen the AI, I think we need to acronymize it.

Also, I submit this design for it:



As for Smokey's satellite design... it's on the right track, but it needs some tweaking. Right now the side view looks like the McDonald's Arch.

Agreed. But since it's TriBlurr's idea, final say of course belongs to him. I submit...

Omnipresent
Electronic
Neuropresence

Observational
Metatasking
Electronic
Neuropresence

Omnipresent
Multitasking
Electronic
Neuropresence

...as suggestions.
