classics elita 1 by beamer classics elita 1 by beamer
based on artwork from the cover to the botcon comic drawn by alex milne
she's basically a chromia/thunderblast repaint/remold... i liked that mold... i like elita 1... though i'd draw her. ^_^ i'll color this when i figure out her color scheme a little better.

I never really liked these alt toys released by cons and such of characters that never had their offical toy, just plain lazy remolds....boo.

But I really like this. :)

You've managed to make me like two character designs/concepts that used to make me claw my eyes out. Congrats!

Only one word comes to mind for this: Perfection! Elita-1 is LONG overdue for a mold of her own and this would be it.

Not that she wasn't the epitome of gal-in-charge before, but hoo-ee, now she seriously looks like she'd bust up a 'Con or two and then they'd apologise for stirring up a ruckus. Definitely not a lady whose bad side I'd like to see.

Stunning work.

(I think dA ate the first time I tried to make this comment. Sorry if it multiposts.)

busting up a con or two and having them apologize eh? that makes her sound like a sort of dick cheney kind of badass.
jk
thank you, tai!

Its gonna be at LEAST $40. Club toys are always criminally expensive. Damn price Gougers.

However a red repaint of Energon Arcee is going to be released at Target as part of the movie line under the name Elita-1

A blue version of Energon Arcee is at Target NOW. I call it Chromia.

I figured that the new Elita-1 will be a club toy like last year's Airazor. A bit pricey but i hope worth it! I had hoped that the Elita-1 would be one of the sovernir exclusives. . . . oh well.

I got myself an Arcee army. 11 Hasbro pinks, 3 pink Takaras, 2 green, 3 of the new Blue Targets, a kitbash a friend did for me and of course the 3 BotCon exclusives. It started with Energon and that it said she was an Ominicon. . . a bit disappointed when only one appeared in the show.
I do wonder when the new Target Elita-1 will be out in stores?

It be a cool drawing Will. But I can't stand that friggin Thunderblast mold. She doesn't even transform. She just carries a boat on her back. Grrrr...

*laugh* i actually enjoy her as a shell former. she's still a fun toy to me. cool weapon, nicely articulated, the wings help her stand up well, and she's a girl that actually looks like a girl (course, i know there a couple of other female figures that have better transformation schemes that pull this off...but still...)

Wow - this Elita looks actually like she might be able to kick aft! A toy-version of this (even pink *gasp*) would be worth seeing/owning.

beamer Featured By Owner May 6, 2007  Professional Traditional Artist
and since it would be a club/con exclusive, they could actually make it pink and it would sell! ha! i always thought it kinda sucked that they didn't make arcee in traditional colors because of that.

She looks awesome! I can't wait to see how she looks with colours on her. ^_^

I also like how you'be made some small changes to the design and how you've drawn the "wings" and gun smaller.

Looks like I'm adding this to the list of toys I want... I don't have Thunderblast or any of her repaints, but they look worth buying.

beamer Featured By Owner May 5, 2007  Professional Traditional Artist
thanks, dude! i really like the way alex did up her details too. he added a few things to her that i don't think will be on her toy (i figure she probably won't have the arm spikes) that i thought was really cool. plus, i really like the way he does detail on his bots.

he does have a great nack for detail, i think personally my own TF's are starting to follow teh same path as Joe NG, i LOVE how thick and heavy his TF's are so i'm bulking my own up to hulk proportions but with a Boo twist

The chromia remold was a great idea, looks really good on her, really makes her look more tough and leader like.

:iconbeamer:
beamer Featured By Owner May 5, 2007  Professional Traditional Artist
XD thank ya! (hopefully i won't slack off on this and actually do some colorwork!)

i'm really glad the chromia mold is getting some love. so far all i've seen is elita on paper and not an actual toy, but if we do see some sort of exclusive figure, i really hope she gets a nicely remolded head at least. ^^
