Default Transformer - Awesomist Prime

I just saw the new transformer movie and it was amazing, just mindblowing special effects. So I started creating my own little transformer, its not near done, not even the part thats in the render here (a lot of tweaking needed) but this is one days work so far! Crits and comments are welcome.
The blue paint job is only there so i could better see the defects of the model.

The model looks good. The tires seem a little big though causing the rims to look small.

Thanks for the comments! I dont have much sketches down. I have random sketches of what I am aiming for but there spread out. A foot there, head over here, random stuff, so im kind of just winging it! Im trying to fix the pinch but its starting to piss me off... i tamed it a bit but its still there. Ill fix it tomorrow morning when im awake :/ Heres an update with the hands, just finished them. So the arms are now done!

Nice. It would look amazing if you animated it transforming from a car to a robot.

Ill probably animate it walking and the conventional stuff, but i dont think I can make it transform. This model wasnt made to transform :/ Now comes the really fun part, im going to model a sword for it!
