I can't get over how he's basically a wheel on a head on a wheel with a couple of arms jutting out the sides.
Is it even possible for him to stand still on the one wheel without using his arms as supports.
Really, I should hate the Arcee twins as well, but I don't.
Also, I hate the Autobot brothers because of the characterization, look and how they act which probably falls under characterization.

THAT's why he is awesome! He's two giant wheels with a head in the middle, like a gryoscope. And he has those massive hands! Of course he can stand, he is always moving. How else do you think unicyclists in real life can balance themselves? Stand, no, it's not possible. But Bayformers are made to move at high speeds, not stand still and strike poses. Demolishor never did stand, did he? So you hate him because he can't stand?

For that matter, Bonecrusher, Wheelie, Rampage and Sideswipe and Arcee shouldn't be able to stand properly either.

Arcee is a TRIPLET.

The Twins... m'kay, their faces are ugly, (Mudflap's face is ugly, Skids falls more of dopey) but they were meant to be bumbling amateurs, so I don't hate them. Don't love them, but I don't hate them. I can't see the stereotypes that so many people find in them.

Back to the topic...

Yes, but it's so incredibly obvious with Demolisher. Hell, even the Chromia part (I think) of Arcee was able to stay up right without constantly moving around. And you couldn't even notice it with Bonecrusher and Sideswipe and who ever else.

Yeah, but if you look at concept arts of Demolishor and his final movie version, the wheels are really wide and thick. Besides, the top wheel and large arms are there to balance him. His wheel is massive enough to crush cars whole, after all.

Check out his concept art! That's what this thread is about.

Just in case anyone's interested, here's my attempt to digibash the Osprey art into Springer as seen in the toyline... Not brilliant, I know.

That's actually pretty good. The colors look nice on him.

I do really like Ben Proctor's design - much better than Incinerator. Shame it didn't get into the film or get a bigger toy (ideally taking Stratosphere's slot), really.
