These characters are from my RoboMACs settings (MAC - Mobile Artificial
Consciousness). The 2163 setting was first created as a sort of
"Transformers with the serial numbers filed off", for a short giant robot
game I had written. As I expanded on the game and brought in piloted Robos,
I realized that the 2163 setting wasn't broad enough to show off the rules,
so I created the Exodus setting for use in the final publication. I've made
the 2163 setting available online, although
for some reason the image files of the faction symbols have vanished. Images
are copyright Dave Van Domelen on the date of drawing.
RoboMACs 2163 characters:
- Early Promo: Starbolt and Blueblaze duking it
out, back when RoboMACs was going to be printed in Space Gamer (TM) Magazine.
Primitive transformation designs. 11/19/93
- Roughhouse: Turns into a Hummvee. I just wish
I'd had a Hummvee to reference when I was drawing him. 1/27/94
- Siphonnn: One of the VerminMACs, based on a
MasterbotiX transforming mosquito toy. 3/21/94
- Avenger: Actually a workable transformation into
a Navy A-12 Avenger flying wing. A plane that never made it off the drawing
board, sadly. 1/25/95
- Traumastar: "Vehicle" mode of the character,
drawn using ClarisWorks. 12/23/95 Or click here
for a version I jazzed up with an image editor. 2/22/96
- Blueblaze Action Master: An Action Master Rad
that I repainted to look like Blueblaze. Image copyright 6/25/96.
- Stinger: A scooter transformer based on the
Malaguti Phantom. 5/4/97.
- Firebrand: A VW Microbus that unfolds (the
panels become a "lab coat") to become a robotic version of Dr. Clayton
"Firebrand" Forrester of MST3K. Firebrand has appeared in the LNH/RoboMACs
crossover "Robot Invasion" among other places in my writing. Note: he should
be a much more shocking shade of lime green, but between my limited set of
markers and problems with the scanner, it came out kinda blah.
- Kath Anders: A human in the setting, she's
more involved with the Legion of Net.Heroes as
Kat, but I decided to include a link here as well. 8/30/12.
RoboMACs Exodus characters:
Featured in the RoboMACs Exodus RPG due out from
- Gunslinger: Piloted by Alan "Duke" Wayne and
Cory Hayes. 6/11/95
- Gemini B: Piloted by Pollux Dimas, this is a
Superdeformed Super Valkyrie model painted to look like the Gemini B (which
is pretty Valk-like to begin with), with a kitbashed sword. The Gemini Robos
and the Dimas brothers are featured in the free giveaway one-page game
"MiniMACs," which was given away at Origins, Gen Con and various stores near
- Enforcer 1003: One of the combat drones used by
the Directorate to keep the populace in line. Includes pictures of several
stages in the process. 12/25/00.
