I'm still exploring all the possible mods for the PC version of Fallout New Vegas.

@  Pennpenn : (02 December 2016 - 11:03 PM)

So what, my species is perfectly happy to completely obliterate an undeveloped species to make servants, go full on ADVENT on more developed worlds, but for the middle of the road species suddenly my hands ar tied? Bah.

@  Pennpenn : (02 December 2016 - 10:58 PM)

It's annoying in Stellaris how "Pre-sentient" life forms can be Uplifted (turned into sentient and loyal races) and pre-space age civs can be messed around with and taken over, but you can't do anything about "Stone Age Primitives" so they just end up as a permanent debuff to a planet and end up squatting in valuable tiles.

@  Verity Carlo : (02 December 2016 - 10:53 PM)

To put it simply, everyone is in a race to become god.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (02 December 2016 - 10:42 PM)

I'm playing Tales of Zestiria instead.

@  Touch My Thighs : (02 December 2016 - 10:10 PM)

So basically I'm 15 hours into Final Fantasy XV and it seems like they took the edgy FF7-style game they were going to make, threw it out and made something actually fun instead.

@  BlackMax : (02 December 2016 - 09:29 PM)

...and now that I've sat home a short bit I realize I completely forgot to look for Ross, TJ MAXX or Marshalls in the area. Damn.

@  ShadowMan024 : (02 December 2016 - 09:20 PM)

I envy you.

@  BlackMax : (02 December 2016 - 09:17 PM)

Just found RiD Warriors Bisk and Ratchet, plus TR Hot Rod, while hunting. It was a good night.

@  ShadowMan024 : (02 December 2016 - 08:28 PM)

"You hugin' people..."

@  Strafe : (02 December 2016 - 07:36 PM)

I liked that one, too. I'm not a fan of the guy at all, but "A Few Good Men" is still one of my all-time favorite movies. He's fantastic as Lt. Daniel Kaffee.

@  Kalidor : (02 December 2016 - 06:24 PM)

Tom Cruise sucks but I really did enjoy Edge of Tomorrow

@  Benbot : (02 December 2016 - 03:57 PM)

What? They made a new Mummy movie and cast Tom Cruise? I love Cruise, but isn't he kind of expensive? Kind of stupid to rely on his star power to boost a new franchise instead of...like...good writing? I hope it had both, but I'm not holding my breath.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (01 December 2016 - 11:36 PM)

Now if only I could get one of my GoG games to work right (well series of games) :(

@  Kalidor : (01 December 2016 - 11:24 PM)

Thanks, I picked it up. Worth it for the soundtrack alone

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (01 December 2016 - 10:01 PM)

GoG is awsome.

@  wonko the sane? : (01 December 2016 - 08:07 PM)

woot woot, thank you kindly!

@  Dekafox : (01 December 2016 - 07:42 PM)

Head's up, GOG has Neverwinter Nights up for free for about another 30 hours or so

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (01 December 2016 - 02:07 PM)

I just found out that Blue from Blue's Clues is a girl. Whoa.

@  Bass X0 : (01 December 2016 - 01:14 PM)

Holy Magikrap!

@  Pennpenn : (01 December 2016 - 08:45 AM)

Also, TR Triggerhappy is a good mold.

@  Pennpenn : (01 December 2016 - 07:34 AM)

I should have said "not staying together", but anyway.

@  unluckiness : (01 December 2016 - 06:50 AM)

My Astrotrain had that but some floor polish on the tabs helped.

@  Pennpenn : (01 December 2016 - 06:48 AM)

On the subject of recalcitrant TR voyagers, does anyone else have an issue with Sentinel Prime's legs staying together in space-brick mode?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (01 December 2016 - 03:40 AM)

Holy crap or holy carp? ;)

@  BlackMax : (30 November 2016 - 08:41 PM)

...holy crap it works!

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (30 November 2016 - 07:14 PM)

Hold the button (orange spot) on his chest and push them down till they click.

@  BlackMax : (30 November 2016 - 06:05 PM)

The horns can never be kept down! \m/. >_< .\m/

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (30 November 2016 - 04:19 PM)

I was about to say.. I have no problem getting him to stay together in any mode. The horns was the worst thing for me. But I got that fixed.

@  unitremover : (30 November 2016 - 12:26 PM)

...and I just figured that out too

@  unitremover : (30 November 2016 - 12:24 PM)

Oh, hey, I figured it out. Now if I can just find a way to get his upper and lower body to stay pegged together in robot mode I'll be in business.

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 November 2016 - 12:12 PM)

Cold showers.

@  unitremover : (30 November 2016 - 12:11 PM)

Oh, what's the trick to getting his horns to stay down?

@  unluckiness : (30 November 2016 - 08:26 AM)

Alolan baristas say the darndest things

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (30 November 2016 - 08:26 AM)

I like Alpha trion. Just gotta see if his horns will stay down now that I learned the trick.

@  Robowang : (30 November 2016 - 07:55 AM)

Alpha Trion is awesome. Fun transformation, beefy robot mode, sweet sword, amazing headsculpt, and great colors.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (30 November 2016 - 05:48 AM)

Why? Alpha Trion is pretty cool, even with some flaws. He reminds me of BW2 designs.

@  unitremover : (29 November 2016 - 11:34 PM)

I should've listened to what everybody else said about Alpha Trion and not gotten lured in by the sweet siren call of a new toy evoking Vector Prime

@  Msol : (29 November 2016 - 10:12 PM)

Hot damn Astrotrain is way better than I was expecting.

@  BlackMax : (29 November 2016 - 06:32 PM)

I would've guessed that unaired theme for Beast Machines.

@  Gizmoboy : (29 November 2016 - 04:11 PM)

yes, Lightbright is correct on that one

@  Lightbright : (29 November 2016 - 01:47 PM)

Boom Boom Pow by the Black Eyed Peas?

@  Bass X0 : (29 November 2016 - 01:36 PM)

Name the song by the lyrics - "I'm a beast when you turn me on, into the future Cybertron"

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 November 2016 - 05:47 AM)

Ultra Matryoska.

@  BlackMax : (29 November 2016 - 04:55 AM)

That'd be CW Ultra Magnus, I would think.

@  Nutjob R/T : (29 November 2016 - 01:22 AM)

Hm. Titans Return Rowboat Girlyman?

@  BlackMax : (28 November 2016 - 09:09 PM)

TR Alpha Trion looks like a Space Marine Primarch. Specifically, I'm thinking Fulgrim.

Trying to keep the momentum going we turn towards less "friendly" territory. Hailing from the Fun-Pub Wings universe we get a massive beast of the Decepticon homeland.




It took me a long time to zero in a design for this guy that I liked, but I'm really happy with the finished product. Have a bunch of Gearwulf sketches from working on this, so maybe they'll be next...


-ZacWilliam, feels like the text here was getting a bit fuzzy at the larger size (cant imagine why, didn't do anything different than usual) but I kept the image a bit smaller to try and compensate.

I love your description of Krystar, and it sounds a fascinating place.

I do kinda wonder about part of the Ice Bear's transformation: Its hind legs, do they combine with the fore-legs to create the arms? Do they just get folded away somewhere? Do they become its bipedal jaws; as a kind of mirror to its quadrupedal jaws, which become the bipedal hind legs?

(Also, the bipedal head makes me think of Lugnut for no apparent reason, kind of neat, even if not intentional.)

Thanks. icon-hotrod.gif I wanted to do another entry that reminded me of the Titanium Moosebot, but I didn't want to revisit the exact same environment. Setting it at the opposite pole in Kaon seemed like a good idea. I tried to throw a bit of Russian/Siberia into it since it's Kaon and that's kind of thematically appropriate. Though I admit a good bit of Skyrim bleed through as I was thinking about it as well. I almost wanted to find a way to reference the upcoming "Dovahkinn" Bulkhead remold, but didn't get a chance.

The quadruped head becomes the biped legs, yes. The quadruped front paws fold up a bit to make the biped arms. It's a bit untraditional but I actually picture the two hind legs going different place. One opens to form the bipedal head yeah, while the other folds down and inside to make the bipedal forms belly. icon-hotrod.gif

I had a straight on shot of the bipedal mode that probably showed that off more, but I figured the action shot was more interesting visually so went with that instead.

That was one of the hardest parts of this design. Coming up with a head that looked right for something called an iron bear but didn't say "metal earth bear". Turns out when you alter the features of a bear it stops looking bear-like real quick. I'm very happy I finally hit something that worked. Now it reminds me of Buford from Phineas and Ferb a little (especially in the shot I didn't use) but Lugnut is even better really. It works with his bearlike size and his Decepticon hardliner personality. I think you've convinced me to mentally make him a Krystarian native by construction.


-ZacWilliam, was originally going to have the Iron Bears be a mechasoccer team but decided Lobbing was more "Soviet Unionish" as sort of a ping pong parallel.

That works brilliantly, especially with Animated Lugnut's nickname of the Kaon Crusher.


And yeah, I kind of like the idea of Kaon as being a huge winter wasteland, making the settlements and mines blazing forges amongst the super-cooled air, with temperatures tending towards extremes.

I look forward to seeing more! icon-hotrod.gif

Hey, surprise! icon-hotrod.gif

Thank the Beast Hunter's guide Hasbro released in Asia for this one. Nothing get's me excited to work on more pages than new Mechanimals being added to the franchise.






-ZacWilliam, and thanks to the last issue of the Club Mag there should be at least one more page close behind this one. icon-hotrod.gif

Thanks everyone. It was really fun to do one of these again.

I've got two or three more pages in various stages of sketching so, depending on how free time breaks down I'm hopefull there should be another page soon. icon-hotrod.gif


-ZacWilliam, what I really need is them too keep name-droping new mechanimals, I've worked through so many of the existing ones by this point.
