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.
