Wing Saber and powerglide

Postby Wing Saber » Sun Feb 13, 2011 8:52 pm

I just noticed something. Wing Saber (The character from the UT, not me) seems to be based on Powerglide. In energon, his physical appearance after he gets his new body Looks similar tho that of powerglide in some ways, especially the head, and in Cybertron, His personality and shoulders look similar to powerglide's.

Actually, Energon Wing Saber is designed after someone much cooler than Powerglide:

...Star Saber!

and his combined winged form with Optimus (the left one) is based off of...

...Victory Saber!

Comparison:

As for Cybertron Wing Saber, it's just a similar altmode. The A-10 Thunderbolt II is a popular altmode choice.

It's used by G1 Powerglide, Bad Boy, Tailwind, Windrim, Hot House, Energon Sky Shadow, Energon Terradive, Cybertron Skyfall, Universe Skydive, Universe Fireflight, Cybertron Wing Saber, Wingblade, Steel Wind, Skyglide, Universe Skyhammer, Universe Sky Shadow, Universe Storm Cloud, Marvel Crossovers Thor, and DOTM Powerglide.

“Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.” -- C.S. Lewis

Woah That's pretty cool. But also, In Cybertron, not only do they have the same alt mode, but they also have the same airborne-show-off personality

quote="Wing Saber"]Woah That's pretty cool. But also, In Cybertron, not only do they have the same alt mode, but they also have the same airborne-show-off personality[/quote]Armada Jetfire was like this too: the high-flying cocky cool guy who liked to show off.

Same could be said for the similar personalities of G1 Hot Rod, BW Cheetor, RiD Wedge, Armada Hot Shot, Energon Ironhide, Cybertron Hot Shot, and Animated Bumblebee (the youngster who wants to prove himself). It's a case of common archetypes.

Besides, Cybertron Wing Saber was originally conceived as an entirely new character named Sonic Bomber, who shares a name with G1 Sonic Bomber. Notice how differently he acts (and even sounds) from his Energon self.


Though, as an interesting tidbit, almost everyone in the Energon cartoon was design to resemble a past generation character.
