Transformers Aligned Continuity Sideswipe Concept Design

Sideswipe---Bot-mode-final

A second piece of work from Emiliano Santalucia to share with you here. This piece of work is for a concept he did when working with Hasbro to develop a Transformers production and character bible for Hasbro, more than likely the master document detailing Hasbro’s Aligned Continuity project which comprises Transformers Prime, the Transformers War for Cybertron video games, and the Exodus novels series.

This piece of concept art was developed entirely by Emiliano Santalucia when he was given free rein by Hasbro’s Eric Siebenaler to do his own take on some classic characters, and what you see here is Emiliano Santalucia’s concept on what an Aligned Continuity Sideswipe might look like. His concept includes equal measures of Revenge of the Fallen Sideswipe particularly in the wheel-legs and the swords on the arms, and mixes in some classic elements in the head, arms and chest. The final effect is very cool and striking, in this newsie’s opinion.

Check out the original post on Emiliano Santalucia’s blog for more on the creation process and the background to this piece.

    I agree!

    But the overall design of Sideswipe is visually pleasing and I would love to see it on a toy or in Transformers Prime!
