I agree Mkall, I need that on my classics shelf. I wouldn't mind the Rodimus either. I'm impressed by all the designs.

Wish I could design TFers this good. I think I get why people feel they're overdone, but Rodimus and Ultra Magnus look prett sweet.

I can't get enough of this MTMTE concept art! I think these are just the raddest representations of Transformers. They're such a cool blend of old-school and appeal and modern lines and detailing that make them believable.

I know I'm behind the curve here, but what's the scoop with MTMTE? Is this an upcoming comic?

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye and Transformers: Robots in Disguise are the two new series, each focusing on two different groups of Autobots, one travelling in space, searching (so far) for Crystal City, Dai Atlas and the other Knights, the other on Cybertron, under Bumblebee's command.

I really want to not read these, due to money issues, but damn does the artwork look good in both!

And Drift got religion man, he got it bad!


EDIT: I convinced myself to get them all, backordered RID from my comic shop, and they had the second print of MTMTE 1. Coolsauce.

Dai Atlas and Crystal City aren't actually part of the Knights of Cybertron! They merely followed their teachings. The Knights are 10 million years old, while Crystal City was founded four million years ago, when the Great War broke out.

Which is why I said so far.
In #2 Drift and Rodimus suggest going to find Dai Atlas and his knights, the Circle of Light.
To then continue the quest, Swerve would say.

You won't regret it. Money well spent. And food is overrated anyway. :lol:
On another note: M.A.R.B.s!!! I didn't think anybody even remembered those anymore! From their size, I'm sure these are quite different from Ratchet's original Mobile Autobot Repair Bay, but still, that's really kicking it up a notch for me. I actually built one from a cardboard box and my dad's junk drawer scraps when I first saw it way back in Marvel's TF #8.

I am a big fan of the Cybertronian alt modes. I am eager to get the figures for the new TF game because they will be the Cybertronian versions.

Each issue of the comic I am eager to see what the new look of some of the characters I have known for years might be.

I had a theory on what could happen in MTMTE, but I doubt it would be true:
My thought is that this group set out to find the Knights of Cybertron, but then the explosion happened that sent them through a weird warp...what if that warp also sent them through time to the past, but they don't know it...and eventually in them seeking the Knights of Cybertron they actually become the Knights of Cybertron that they were actually seeking. A self-fulfilling prophecy of sorts. They become that which they seek. And then that message left in the first issue is not a message from the future to warn them, but actually a message from the past.

Just a thought. I'm sure that won't be the case, but it would be a cool plot twist.

Why does Drift have to all of a sudden look like animated rodimus? Cant they just leave s*** the way it is?
Why does he look like Wing?
I'll still get the trades but it seems lame. Drift's design was one of the best parts about him, but now he's just another anime-ish looking robot.
I preferred his stocky look, as he was always slender in the torso.
Just my opinion, like I said I havent read since Chaos ended. Nice to see Drift is alive. Not sure why the designs have to change fifty million times....

Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye artist Alex Milne dropped by Full Metal Hero with a preview panel from this month's Transformers: MTMTE #3, and some Hoist concept art. As you can see below Hoist's alt mode seems to share some design elements with Energon Landquake/Landmine mold.


well, since issue 3 of MTMTE will be out this week, i thought i'd come by and just give a little tease of whats inside the book.
i hope you enjoy


Image


so i thought i'd show off a little more designs in anticipation of MTMTE 03's release this week. i thought i'd show off what Hoist looks like
we got to see his alt mode at the beginning of issue 2, and a small shot of his full body in the crowd scene on pg 19 of issue 2.
now i thought i'd give a better look at his robot mode.
also with the alt mode, the back view i didn't draw in the hook section since i wanted to figure out his leg transformation. just in case any wondered.
enjoy

Weapon: Gattling Gun
Artist Alex Milne has shared more of his concept art from IDW's Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye by way of UK fansite Full Metal Hero. Below we have character designs for Fortress Maximus, Pharma, First Aid, and Ambulon.

so here are a few more designs for MTMTE. i would have posted them up sooner, but i've been pretty busy
so first we have fortmax. basically the same design of him from when i first designed him for the IDW universe back in spotlight arcee. there are a few tweaks to him that i was always meaning to do, but never had the time to do. with those tweaks i feel his more functional. i'll post his alt mode at a later date, or maybe just hold onto it until i put a sketchbook together. i haven't made up my mind just yet.

next we have pharma. the description James gave me was he turn into a jet. so i went from there and this is what i came up with. durning the design process i was talking with James to get a better understanding of the character and his relationship with ratchet. i proposed the idea that pharma should have a similar head design to ratchets since he was basically his protégé. also i felt it would make the two of them have a stronger connection. most of the medical team have the red and white colours to them, and that was something i wanted from the start. i felt it made it seem like you were in a hospital and all the doctors and nurses had the same uniform. but i added a few more colours to pharma to make him stand out more. i also had the idea to have the medical staff have a silver autobot emblem instead of the traditional red. i thought that would make them a bit different then normal autobots

first aid was a lot of fun to design. i was looking over his toy and cartoon models as a base for his look here, but i was also came up with some differences to match his personality for this story. i wanted him to be very slender. i felt he wouldn't be the heavy combat type, but more the thinker. at times he had to look a bit timid due to things which were going on in the story and with his character, so that played into my design. overall i like what i came up with.

last we have ambulon. i won't say too much about him. you'll have to wait for issue 5 to find out more about him ;p
