Here's my final image It was a really great challenge, learned a lot about myself... As I wrote it in my thread I had an idea of further developing the scene, pushing it towards a funnier direction... Well that was't accomplished here and now. And I'm starting to realize that maybe the robot itself was not right for it... I just tried to force an idea to an existing model. But later on I think I'll try to finish this idea or something similar.

Cheers to everyone, and great work - it was great following the WIP threads, nice works

Final
Well I must say that this has been a great challenge I have learned a ton. There have been some top notch entries and I have had a blast competing against all of you. I kinda feel the same way as Daveido in that I had a hard time trying to do anything else with my model besides a simple standing pose. All of my other poses hid the inner aspects of Astroboy and without the insides Astroboy alone doesn't really look like enough of a robot for this challenge. I am re-posting my video and previous render as well as one new image. So here they are I wish everyone the best of luck and I must say I don't envy they judges everyone's WIP's have been great.

The Video

Last but not least the Comic (at least that's the look I was going for)

Here's my final entry. It has been a great challenge with some really nice looking robots. I'm pretty happy with my own results and it's pretty close to what I had in mind at the start. Learned a ton of new things too. Had never before rigged anything so learned a lot from rigging this robot. And as a true perfectionist I wish I had even more time so I could improve it some more, but like I said I'm pretty happy with the result.
May the best robot win!

Great robots and really nice work to everyone who joined in this challenge I'm impressed. It's been fun to follow this one and there's been some great ideas so you've made it hard to pick a winner again We'll post up who it will be in a few days time though.

Just add it now don't think it would kill anyone, hurry though! You worked so hard on it and the design's so cool so it would be a shame not to.

Also, where's daverave's robot?!

Here's a Garden-Bot from gtransporter at SimplyLightwave;

I love the grass and the nest with the bird in it. That was a nice touch to the robot.

Thanks StarsAdmirer, I'm quite curious myself!

Thanks for that Miss Nova, I'll attach it now

So here's my robot. It's a desk fan that transforms into a robot with little legs and big gorilla-like arms. He's not the brightest of transformers and his disguise isn't as great as the others as you can see a lot of the 'seams' like he's a toy transformer. He has trouble with his power cord and due to the nature of his transformation his arms sometimes fall off.

attached is him struggling to pull himself free of the power socket and dancing for no apparent reason. Also is a playblast of his transform (turns out I didn't complete the render for it because it was taking such a long time so the playblast should do). It also turns out I can set keyframes on objects that are stuck to set driven keys
