I consider it a privilege to witness someone emerging from their dark ages, to watch them explore this hobby again and join the ranks of AFOLs. Like me, builder prolost is a veteran of visual effects in motion pictures. We even worked on some of the same movies as the studios we worked for were sorta "sister companies", of similar size and capacity. So to be able to watch his "awakening" has special meaning to me. And from the looks of this clean and well-built Tomahawk, we can look forward to some amazing work from a talented artist and great guy. Welcome to the fold, brother.
Just this morning I blogged a Valkyrie, now this Defender MOC by builder prolost comes to my attention, it's Macrossriffic sorta day! I like the clean lines and design of this mech, like it's animated counterpart, it's no nonsense.
Thanks for the tip Angus!
I've always sorta preferred the mentality of Macross (or Robotech as it was better known in the US) over Transformers. Rather than disguising themselves it was simply a matter of practicality. It's easier to get where you're going if you can fly fast, and easier to fight if you're a robot, so why not combine them? This version by nobu_tary nails the look perfectly, and transforms as well, awesome.
