Life beyond the Battlefield….





While a lot of Autobots can boast of such admiral achievements like saving Earth and defeating Megatron and the Decepticons on the battlefield, sooner or later, one has to realize that the rust-less, youthful life of a robot warrior is doomed to come to an end. Sadly, most Transformers don’t make this connection, and consequently don’t plan their lives past 300,000 miles (I saw Optimus Prime on the street the other day, trying to sell used car parts, brought a tear to my eyes.)

Not the Autobot named Nine-Iron! Golf was his answer from Cybertron. Practicing his swing on unlucky Decepticons, Nine-Iron is a force to be reckoned with in and outside the PGA tour. Look out, Tiger Woods!

I drew out the golf cart since I used parts from 2 different golf carts. Next step, coloring. Also, can we do an animation test of our transformer and post it on here? And come on everybody, we need like a ton more Transformer designs, so Januel can do another “Find your character piece”!(In color, Jan and if it's not too much trouble in the scanning phase, which of course it won't be, life-size, this time. I'll need the original mailed to my house.)

Jodie, you are the friggin' MAN! This is hilariously genius or geniusly hilarious...and I like his name alot because it actually sounds like a cool transformer name. I think I speak for everyone when I say that Nine-Iron is the autobot with the most balls.

Hahaha!! I love it! Made me laugh out loud at how cool yet comedic your transformer is! Who would ever have thought of creating one out of a golf cart?

Awesome take on the whole transformer bit, I would love to see some pencil tests of this guy transforming!

One minor crit: maybe I'm way off on this one - you'll have to forgive my lack of transformer lore - but its seems like the windshield/deflector seems to somehow change shape. Maybe it's part of the whole "transformer" magic or something, I don't know, just thought I'd point it out.

Nice work.

This robot is so laid back. I want to hang with him.

Haha. Jodie, that's fantastic. Love the design and your commentary. Now animate it transforming!
