Sky-Byte by BillForster Sky-Byte by BillForster
AllSpark Almanac: MaccAdam's Menu: Sky-Byte

I didn't want to just make an Animated version of his RID counter part. I wanted him to looks completely off the wall nuts. After all, he's a flying shark that writes poetry. I needed him to be scary and creepy and be happy and smiley all at once. Beautiful words recited by the craziest looking monster. I wanted to embrace that contradiction.

I figure he shares the same body type as Lugnut.

You got correctly; partially. Sky-Bite has Lugnut's body, but Derrick decided to put an early design of his and implanted that desin's head, of Sky-Bite, into that body. He's featured on the last page of Transformers Timelines #6, as part of Team Stryka's attack on Moon Base 1; one of the possible openers for Transformers Animated, season 4.

...Gah, now I'm trying to visualize the rest of his body and figure out how his transformation works.

Sidenote: If you wanted Sk-Byte to be scary and creepy, brother did you succeed.

I am currently in England for the Auto Assembly convention. I will post Runamuck and Runabout once I return home to the States. Thanks for your kind words everyone. I took a lot of pride in Sky-Byte!

Now I fear for the autobot's....my intuition tells me that Sky-Byte could easily shred an autobot the size of Bulkhead to scrap metal.

Same body type as Lugnut? Hmm, now you have given me a kitbash idea... :)

Will you be posting Runamuck and Runabout too? I love those guys and their redesigns.

Now see, I don't know. Both of his incarnations were somewhat lithe. But my love of Lugnut is clearly overpowering that lingering doubt.

Make him turn into a Navy Destroyer (boat with lots of guns), his robot mode still looking like Lugnut, and give him a Shakespearian voice.

Now I want a toy...

While I still like what I thought he'd look like (soul patch and beret, it's in my gallery), this is still awesomely creepy.

Eva unit 1 Berserker mode would piss itself and flee if it saw that face. Gendo would hide under his desk.

Makes sense that he'd share a body type with Lugnut. Terrifying take on a wacky character. :thumbsup:

If you ever get a chance to do a full body drawing of this guy do it.

:lol: I guess this is what Razorsaw drew back then. Despite not a direct port from his RID appearance, this one can grow on you for sometime. :lol:

My take on TFA Sky-Byte's an RID one..Mixed with the Batman The Brave and The Bold's Music Meister. :lol:
