Gobots Animated Tux by PWThomas Gobots Animated Tux by PWThomas
This is a redesign of an original Gobots character in the style of Transformers Animated, to go with my other Gobots Animated works (the reduxes, not the first attempts). Please fullview and comment!

For Tux, I imagined him to be an arms dealer for the Renegades, so I took alot of influence from Destro from GI Joe and for the face, though he's not an arms dealer, Lord Mammon from The Adventures of Spawn. I wanted him to have a regal quality, hence the scepter which also acts as his weapon, and also, as his name is Tux, I wanted him to look like he's wearing a tuxedo. The alt mode really was borrowed heavily from Porter C Powell's limo from Transformers Animated, which funnily enough was called a TUX model (bit of a homage there I reckon :)). The idea is the back of the limo opens up to unveil Tux's goods to sell.

And it seems that Derrick Wyatt (the designer of TFA) intended that nood to Gobots when drawing this vehicule in the original serie. That's why they did his robot mode in the TFA Almanach 2.

Didn't expect to see Tux actually, but the concept is certainly interesting.
Never liked that character much, but the style of his robot mode fits Animated feel ;) I do enjoy the take on his vehicle mode, it's very stylish ;)

thanks tho the vehicle was borrowed heavily from a car in transformers animated so i can't take much credit for that :)
