AMM-V16c Badlander by Grebo-Guru AMM-V16c Badlander by Grebo-Guru
Here's a multiform roadstriker used by the evil Axis terrorist group in the Mekton supplement "Operation Rimfire." I tell ya, designing a transformable car that doesn't look like it belongs amidst the Transformers is hard.

Here's a link to a colored image of the Badlander:

Anyway, this image and design is TM and copyright and everything R. Talsorian Games, inc. No infringement intended, etc.

I did like it truly...for a Transformers-like, Dorvack-like setting or a Galvionesque campaign (Misty Chaser...Love Chaser...). It wasn't the best choice for OR. Too much toy-like in a pleasurable way.

Agreed. This was probably the least of my OR designs.

Besides the Ex-Sentinel this is my second favorite Mecha.  While the one Bike model was alright to me the 'look' just didn't seem right for some reason :(

Having watched a few of the classic Eighties mecha anime that featured wheeled vehicles, I can understand your visual design plight. Not to mention the fact that "futuristic" land vehicles that aren't "smart cars" can be difficult to realize too, by a lot of them. (Dvorak had designs that were plain ugly.)

Dorvack's designs were indeed ugly. [high five]
The only other decent sources of reference/inspiration for transformable cars come from Galvion and Transformers. Designing a transformable car that holds more than one person in robot mode is a design plight indeed! Happy to chat with someone who "gets it."

Despite the popularity of the sub-genre, transforming vehicle anime did not last too long. Then they got shoved into the Transformers ghetto, and that was about it for the most part. We need some more transforming vehicle anime to give a wider range of designs.

Well, there's Gyrozetter -- that's airing right now. But of course their transformations cheat.

I can't really say that I'd accept Gyrozetter right now. ^^;

I really like this one. There's a vintage vibe, like I've seen in gundam and macross artbooks.
