I hope I didn’t make it worse lol. I was too lazy to grab and transform my Arcee toy for the buttflap reference.

Hi, I’m Fabail. I’m a socially awkward introvert and I look hideous on photos.

And I like robots a lot.

And here’s my latest appalling attempt at getting back to art. I’ve been so distracted in the past few months… This is more of a doodle, weh.

One thing I really miss about G1 is that transformers actually use each other’s altmode like regular vehicles and machines.

Like Perceptor! He is so awesome, he’s a scientist and turns into a microscope, which means he can look at tiny things and let others see what he sees at the same time.

And the Junkions! They team up in pairs and regularly switch roles of rider and vehicle with a partner. I imagined this to be very useful when traveling long distance.

So I’ve been thinking about Cybertronian nurses that transform into hoverchairs and gurneys for patients, transporters that turn into taxicabs and small buses for those who are lazy or without vehicular altmodes, dockworkers that turn into forklifts, artists that turn into laser engravers, crafters that turn into 3D printers…

…But in the end, everyone should be able to change their jobs or altmodes as they wish; as long as they can perform well at whatever job they want to do, altmodes shouldn’t matter.

Yeah there’s that.

I just remembered that Tailgate has a screen in his forearm back in issue #1.

So now I’m wondering: since his body is so ancient that it still has “levers and pulleys and pendulums”, is that screen a CRT screen while everybody else has LCD?

Okay, the con is over, and I’m home after another 10-hour road trip!

It was a blast! Despite my social awkwardness and sometimes crippling anxiety, I had a pretty good time at TFcon. It was my first time going to a TF-centered convention! I had only been to one other con before this, and that was years ago.

I think the most in-character thing I did as Tailgate was picking some garbage off the ground.

Ironhide cannot turn into a turtle car, I don’t think he and Crankcase can be friends.

Unlike the other Tailgate I met today, I didn’t really fit in. :c
