This is my 2nd transformation scheme test run, this time for my Transtech inspired Cheetor PRIME. Maybe that'll be a hint at what to expect in the story ;)

The detail and transformation are VERY simplified in comparison to the non-animated versions, due to the fact I did this in a day and was never aiming for it to be a good animation anyway. It's simply a way for me to convey and remember his transformation.

As I said before it's inspired by Transtech, a planned sequel to Beast Wars/Beast Machines which never made it. Instead we got Transformers Armada. Yay... The initial sketches and designs for some of the Transtech characters are still floating round the internet if any one wants to go find them. My project is to create what could have been.

I'm creating designs and characters based off of these Transtech designs and will be making a comic, and possibly even an animated comic if I can, taking aspects of pretty much every TF fiction seen to date.

You'll see the remaining Beast Wars/Machines cast fighting along side the original G1 Optimus Prime to defeat some of the oldest Decepticons still functioning.
I'm even going to include some fan made characters, like my Justicity and other "Grim Squeaker" creations getting minor roles.

I guess this is the first time I'm officially promoting my project, so now would be the best time to say:
Keep checking back to see new updates, and watch the final war of the Beasts unfold.

Wow.. absolutely jaw-dropping to me. I think I spent about 5 minutes sitting here just admiring all the details and reading the description o-o

Thanks very much :3 I actually wanted to put in more detail to really show of the idea I had of "Transtech", which uses transformations quite similar to the level of detail they have in the new TF movies. But ultimately I realised this was enough, and if I thought too much about the transformations and too little on making them look good I'd loose what I was trying to do with the project.

You're welcome :D

Ah, not quite familiar with all the transformer terms and whatnot like "Transtech" but it all sounds awesome o:

Yeah. Work on the details later or something when the project's finished O:

Well basically "Transtech" was a series that never quite happened, it was going to have uber high level detail and a nice dark plot, but it got canned for "Armada" which, if you know it, was uber low detail and kid-friendly... Yaaaay...
So yea, I'm giving Transtech a chance :D

oh I see. Yeah. speaking of dark plots.. that reminds me of ReBoot when things got different/more dark. I loved it.

Thanks for the explanation :D

whoa. There's a new film coming out? I thought it was just the online comic thing that would be around for a while until some initiative took place. I wanted a new season but that's great news sir :D

Ah ha, it's so nice to meet someone who's into a lot of similar shows and media xD although I don't know a huge lot about transformers, but I did love watching Beast Wars as a kid, and I love a lot of mech stuff, mostly anime stuff, but ya.
