Okay, fandom. Let me stop you for a minute.
This is a shot if the new characters from the new Transformers series, “Robots in Disguise”. The fellow on the right is named Fixit.
The fandom is going to do their best to destroy him.
What he’s like, we have no idea. He could end up being the worst written, most annoying Transformers character ever. But right now, all we know is what he looks like and that his voice actor is Mitchell Whitfield.
The fandom hates characters like this. Why? Because his design is unconventional. Because he’s not a traditional-looking Transformers character. I have been in this fandom long enough to know that there are going to be a lot of people set to make him the butt of a joke because he’s got a non traditional body type and designed to be fun and goofy looking.
I don’t want this to happen. So let’s do our best, one and all, to focus on how fun and cute and adorable this little guy is and celebrate the fact that Hasbro is willing to experiment on what it is that makes a Transformer.
Please. I beg you. I don’t want to see a character that instantly made me smile embroiled in dudebro vitriol again. If he ends up being legitimately awful as far as writing goes, but at this stage, I think there’s something worth defending.
Don’t do it you guys- lookit his adorable, determined face! I bet he’s a cutie :U
I think he’ll be fine
After a grueling 5 hour stream I’ve finished up my print! Here it is in all its glory!

I think this’ll be the only “all new art” print I’ll have with me down there. Not to say I wont be bringing any other prints, just that they’re all older prints I’ve had available at other shows or older artwork repurposed as prints. I’ll be trying out a smaller 8.5x11 inch size of prints as well so come check those out too! I’ll try to post a graphic of the prints I’ll have so you guys can know what to expect! :D
