I admit I did kinda picture him about... twice that big, at least.

The only guy who's ever drawn TransTech bodies with the appropriate amount of alien-ness, I feel, is Alex Milne.

I want to see Carlos Magno do Transtech. Full-on "what the hug am I looking at" cosmic horror.

Never did like TransTech. Just didn't do it for me even as alien robot designs.

And the dude piloting the mech is totally a cameo of me


Make it so wiki!



(Funny thing, I actually do have a cameo in the 07 movie prequel comic. Mwahaha. I am canon!)

I still arrogantly claim Project Black Knife in ROTF was a shout out. No, not really...


I know it wasn't but hey...I used to post like crazy on Don's boards and my nick is an awesome sounding mission name.

So, I can go with that.

When I was a stupid kid on ATT I made a fan-character that was Megatron's rubber ducky exposed to the Transmetal driver, and then it showed up all mechanical-like in the show. Just sayin'...

Yeah. THAT would have worked nicely. icon-hotrod.gif

I can't say I'm a huge fan of the Transtech Rhinox design, it's a nice design, but it just doesn't feel Transtech-y enough.


I thought the description we got in withered hope seemed... different than the actual visual here. Or was that just me?

Here's a 5-minutes-in-Photoshop shot at a more Transtech-y Rhinox. It's pretty much just "existing TT Rhinox" + "BM Tankor" shaken up in a bag and baked. I figure that's kind of what an actual TT Rhinox would have looked like back in '01, had one existed.

Re-reading his description in Withered Hope, first I notice it said he was "rust red", unless that was just the color of the holographic projection he was communication through. His head was described as "bullet shaped"; the actual image doesn't make me think of a bullet, but maybe that's just me. His cannons and shoulders sounded larger, and the head should be "in the middle of [his] chest".

In short, it sounds a lot more like that prototype God Fire Convoy posted than what was pictured. Keep in mind, I am not partial to either appearance, so it is just the inconsistency of it.

Yeah, sure. It's like 80% the original image anyway, just moved around some.
