Transformers Armada kids by dyemooch Transformers Armada kids by dyemooch
Okkkaaay. Other than the 'tweaked' art I usually do, I draw boatloads of Transformers. I like them...alooootttttttt ::drool:: . Okay, anywho, not many people are fond of Armada/Micron Legend...and I can see why, but I'm one of those people who hated it, and then liked it...but the kids still bug me. So here's a picture of the TF: Armada kids and their Minicons. Yep.......if you don't know that Alexis' head and neck aren't exactly working as they were made to, and that Carlos is more fem' than I think he should be, and that Gindor's inks stop around the thigh, and I had to fill in with solid colors, or that Highwire(the one next to Rad on the far left) isn't exactly drawn right......then it'd be all good.
hehehehe.

Fantastic art! They all look adorable, especially Alexis and Grindor. I'm a fan of the show myself but I totally get why so many people hate it also. The rushed production, dubbing mistakes, and the annoying state the obvious role that the kids were given most of the time. But as far as this trio is concerned, I can't bring myself to hate them (Billy and Fred I despise the most since they added absolutely nothing to the show). What bugs me the most about Rad, Carlos and Alexis was that they had potential to be great sidekicks. They were fun to watch when they were actually doing something and if the show had taken the time to flesh them out just a bit more, I think they would be up there with the other great human sidekicks in transformers. 

But again, rushed production and all the other problems made Armada simply a good show, not a great one like it could have been.

Heh, I'm actually a fan of the Armada series, partly because it was the first one I saw when I was young and it's what got me into Transformers. And I like the kids, these three anyway, the other two, Billy and Fred, annoyed me.

But yeah, I love this design you've done of them although Carlos does look a little femine.

Wish I could draw them but I can only write transformers stories and I'd like to think I portray characters like the kids in a better light.

Anyway, great pic, I'm going to fave it.

I don't see why everyone hates Armada. I liked the series, and all the characters (except Billy), although they were a bunch of damn dorks. I used to love this show.
At least Miley Cyrus isn't in transformers. :O

It's a cute picture. Alexis is always going to be my favorite human character out of any Transformers series. Rad and Carlos were okay, as was Fred (I somewhat have a soft spot for fat boys), I just wish he didn't talk about food ALL the time. Billy, however, was annoying and he shouldn't have been in the series. Actually, interesting enough, Billy and Fred were originally going to be written out of the series, but they never got around to it. Thus, their staying in until the end of the anime was wholly unintentional.

This is probably the only picture I have EVER seen where I thought Alexis was cute (I hate that character) really good job. Usually I hate human characters period but with Armada, Alexis and Fred were the only ones I could really say I hated. My favorite part is Carlos, he LOOKS like one of my friends.

I think you should go back and do this one again, using your current skills. Not to say that this is bad. In fact, I say it needs an update because it's a FANTASTIC image and deserves a revisiting.

Also, I have never gotten over the nagging feeling that there was some chemistry between Sureshock and Alexis...if Sureshock was male, that is. Ha, HA! Ambiguous.

I wouldn't mind if you DID say it was bad XD. I like this piece- but I see too many flaws in it. I'd love to draw some Armada crap again, though; I'll have to take you up on your suggestion when I get the chance :)

The minicons are VERY underrated these days! ESPECIALLY with the economy getting crazy. I think there should be a Minicon line ala Micromasters again. Set of 5 themed minicons; maybe one or two with a base. They could sell larger figures still, but slower and in the line; maybe even go a little Actionmasters on us. I'd buy 'em :)

K-Mart has a Minicon pack out for..I think it was $25. It's most of the Classics Minicon teams all in one cardboard display case. Kinda like that old collector display from G1.

Actually, there was a Bumblebee in the original 1980s cartoon and comic (which is also where Ratchet came from... we hadn't seen him since the 80s, either, until the movie came out.) The storyline of the movie actually parallels the comic quite a bit.

Yeah, there is way to man "fat kid" jokes in there...it's like it's implying something...O.o I DID love Armada the best, however, because of Starscream's place in it. It seemed to make so much more sense with the way everything was placed. Prime was amazing, too...he was basically the definition of 'Hero' and Megatron of 'Villian'. I LOOOOOVED it. :faint: :+fav:

Fred was definitely the low point. He never, ever, ever, ever got a line that wasn't about food. If you thought "Carbombya" back in G1 was stereotype city, you ain't seen nothing yet. Most characters who start out that way eventually grow, but with five kids in a series meant to have three, they got to give Fred fifty episodes plus of interrupting plot-relevant dialogue to drop food-related non sequiturs and existing for no other reason. I'm not the kind of person who hates all human sidekicks in TF, but Fred was nothing more than an annoying distraction.

But despite him, Armada needs more love.

The Armada series was great in that we saw "different" characterizations in Transformers. Sure, Starscream played the lines of Dinobot in his transition from bad to good; but Megatron seemed to be less of a one-dimensional character; that and I was REALLY into the series XD.
Now, though, it pales in comparison to the characterization of Transfomers: Animated, but TF:Armada had a lot to offer and was(and still is) underplayed.

I HATED the fat jokes and how useless the kids were, though. They just came off as whiney.

Megatron was amazing in the Armada series...he was like a bad teenager sometimes. I thought that especially when Thrust said, "Argh, he just so difficult sometimes!" And then he was like a father other times when he saved Demolisher and Cyclonus from Unicron and so on...yeah, Armada Megatron blows every other Megs out of the water. :D Not to mention his expressions in the first episode were to die for.

I dunno about the humans. All in all, the show would've been better without them, but they had their moments, even Billy and Fred.

But this is just cute. The panel, the expressions, the way Alexis and Sureshock/Grindor (Gawd, Hasbro, make up your mind!) are hugging, it's all just nice.

The humans weren't really all that bad... just horribly scripted. My biggest problem with the kids were Fred and Billy; they kinda overdid it with the "fat kid" jokes, lol XD.
It was a great series, though- too bad the animation wasn't the best. The last few episodes and one of the first ones(they were in a temple, I think) were the only really well animated ones..

XD!!! No problem. Armada gets such a terrible reputation from some Transformers fans. I can see why some hate it, but for me it was the ONE Transformers series I've ever really emersed myself into. I spent WAY too much money on the figures and buying the comics when Dreamwave made them. I'd really like to see the series revisited in an IDW spotlight or Botcon Timelines figures. The Armada bots are really the most fun to draw, in my opinion.
