springarm design by markerguru springarm design by markerguru
so this is one of the many designs i came up with for issues 22 and 23 of transformers ongoing.
originally the character was called swingarm, but was changed later to springarm.
this is one of the 2 bike twins that help police an area on cybertron along side orion pax.
he had a twin brother named wheelarch who is basically the same design with only a few minor tweaks to the head and a different colour palette
this was probably one of my favourite designs to work on, and i know i thought the idea of them turning into bikes that optimus or orion would ride was pretty cool. then James had to kill them ;p oh well, there were fun for as long as they lasted.

they have the same alt mode, so they are regular bikes on there own, but can modify for another bot to ride them.
i'll post the alt mode soon :D

this and other designs can been found the the Transformers: Alex Milne sketchbook :)

enjoy

His design (especially the wheel placements) remind me of Armada Sideways.

Eh, not bad! I find the rear tire a little weird, normally I like them around the arms or something.

yeah. but i wanted a more slender design and wheels around the arms would have made him too wide IMO

eh...I suppose so. Or you could put them as a knee sort of thing, eh whatever. I like it like this way now.

the bike to bot size conversion has always slightly puzzled me, do you think of them as larger than earth model motorcycles or smaller bots? somebody mentioned the gestalt concept which i can see helping balance size issues. Are you going to color the alt mode picture?? I would love to see it =) & those are some interesting flashy fatty tires!
