Grandus by Blitz-Wing Grandus by Blitz-Wing
After seeing the TFA April fools pic I got thinking about the big guy and what I'd do to him.

I liked the over weight look he got in TFA but I wanted to do something about his head I really did not like the dish ears so I've turned them into a Samurai helmet and after that I went a bit mad and added the huge gut cannon and turned the run way into a huge sword.

You know, with the way you drew Grandus, I get the feeling he was a type of wrestler before the start of the Cybertronian Wars.

After hearing Grandus's voice, I have to say it would be even funnier if he had a body like this (so he's basically like a robotic version of the Cowardly Lion).

yeah hearing the voice was rather interesting. I personally got the idea that it was more like an elephant meeting a mouse

You should do this in TFA style now, then he'd REALLY look like he belonged in Yoketron's Dojo :D

You never fail to impress as usual :-P

This is one of those redesigns of yours where I just go "crap, why can't this be a real toy" it just so inspired in its ideas.

JELL. ISS.

Grandus name definitively makes him justice! And you made him more awesome. I feel sorry for the Seekers on the upper right corner. I wonder if the hooks on his loincloth are not a big issue when walking. Doubtful because of his size compared with theirs (I know! I'm taking this too seriously. :P).

I thought that might be a thruster in his gut... That's pretty cool. I've always liked the big complex/city-sized Transformers...

That's one big ass sword. I like the little hooks hanging from the bottom of him... Seeing as this season only has 3 episodes left, I wonder if he might get a great role in one of them or in a future series. Then again the convenient name to the final episodes of the series, has got me worried that there might not be another series. Which sucks as I've only just gotten interested in it. As long as Sentinal (Jerk) dies and megs becomes Galavtron in someway, at least that will be compensation. (Dam this post is too long...)

Holy crap, man. This was awesome. Why do you have to be so good at TF art? You put little doodlers like me to shame. XD Still, another great addition. Very nice redesign. I'm honestly glad you gave him actual hands. Something that large just... looks silly with dinky lil' claws.
