Speaking of, what do you call someone who collects toys of the Marvel character The Collector?

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 04:18 PM)

What about people who collect the "Die Hard" movies?

@  wonko the sane? : (21 July 2017 - 03:54 PM)

A lot of the die hard collectors don't need to be louder...

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 July 2017 - 03:22 PM)

@Nevermore Benbot means "amped" as in excited. I believe the term is shorthand for (a sound) amplifier.

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 03:10 PM)

Or is "shorthand" a synonym for "amputated"?

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 03:10 PM)

Is "amped" shorthand for "amputated"?

@  Benbot : (21 July 2017 - 12:28 PM)

I am amped! But I also have standards.

@  Fear or Courage : (21 July 2017 - 08:38 AM)

I consider Thew to basically be the model toy collector. We should all aim to be so amped about the thing we collect.

@  Pennpenn : (21 July 2017 - 07:21 AM)

And some people are just whiny jerks who like to complain about stuff and don't realise that, so will invent irrational grievances to fuel that need.

@  Rycochet : (21 July 2017 - 06:13 AM)

A lot of toy collectors don't seem to get that the things the collect are toys.and have unrealistic expectations of what's doable in a modern retail environment. You're not going to get a $100 figure's worth of parts and paint for $20 or less and gimmicks are needed tomake the toys actually, you know, fun.

@  Foffy : (20 July 2017 - 09:40 PM)

Not necessarily. With the right condiments, they can taste surprisingly nice.

@  Evac : (20 July 2017 - 09:37 PM)

I think most toy collectors are bitter in some form.

@  Diecast : (20 July 2017 - 09:37 PM)

...or maybe I'm the bitter one?!  Oh no.

@  Diecast : (20 July 2017 - 09:32 PM)

And I don't even mean that everyone should love it all. But it does seem to bring the angrier ones in from the lurking.

@  Diecast : (20 July 2017 - 09:29 PM)

It's these reveals that always remind me how exceptionally bitter a large portion of toy collectors are on other forums.

@  Sean Whitmore : (20 July 2017 - 07:06 PM)

SDCC toy reveals make adults happy by telling them what they can get eventually. Kids don't care what they can get eventually, you make them happy by getting them whatever's available now.

@  Jalaguy : (20 July 2017 - 06:10 PM)

They exist, they just don't show them at SDCC because they assume that the adult fanbase doesn't care about them.

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 July 2017 - 06:03 PM)

On SDCC stuff...I'm disappointed, but not surprised, at the lack of the actual KIDS toys among all the toys for us old men

I'm toying with the movie style... It's harder to get a handle on this properly than I figured, at least in terms of making the finished product not look like a skull wrapped in tinfoil with googly eyes.

IPB Image

I started with Grimlock, but I kept editing more and more parts of the original head out till all that's left is the vague shapes of the faceplate and some abstracted antennae. He's somewhere between the Autobot "WHEE MOVING PARTS!" aesthetic and the "RAAAAGH POINTY FEAR ME!" Decepticon look. Not the cleanest pencils ever, but it's sooo shiny.

No idea what colors I should throw on this thing.

Thought about it. I'm not sure how, though, since the movie's all disguise-oriented and giant robotic T-Rex isn't exactly a good disguise...

Tell that to Scorponok. Maybe Grimlocks protoform crashed in the Atlantic Studios Jurassic Park theme ride or something? XD

Who knows. Its all up to a storyline to justify an oddity. =)

Like... Have Grimlock be a triple changer with a normal vehicle mode and a more saurian robot "battle mode". Like battlemasks and gun arms on crack.

Anyway. Really sweet pencil work. =) This will look awesome when colored. The expression is also neat, all grumpy like. XD

I think you have the movie aesthetic nailed down quite well. The teeth gives him a bit of War Within feel and the shady is top notch. Especially in his eyes. As far as a vehicle mode would go, you could make him a tank similar to the War Within version, but give his robot mode some more saurian elements to it. Sorta like how BW Dinobot has a rib cage.

United we conquer

Just a thought (or ten).

Yeah, I think a giant robot T-Rex would be silly as hell on the big screen. Very Mecha-Godzilla. Grimmy should be a tank but not an ordinary one - something big and menacing that looks like it will crush you and tear you to pieces all at the same time.

The colored version. Since the movie seems to mostly stick to the color schemes of the G1 counterparts where one exists (even to somewhat dull effect with solid silver Megatron), Grimlock gets stuck with a mostly black head, two shades of red for his original one, and three shades of silver for innards.

Mind taking a shot at doing movie Arcee, she getting a toy, so why not. I ask cause I see you have the skill to pull off such a task.

I think Arcee's already been defined via the prequel comic cover, but I could take a crack at something different anyway.

I didn't notice the fact that you mirrored one half of his face. It was brilliantly done! The design as a whole is brilliant! My only complaint is I think he has a bit too much red on his colours. But other than that, Kudos!
