And we have seen the light! Yesterday, a mysterious character concept art surface via South African Online toystore Toy Adventures and it sure caught the attention of fans. A lot of speculation came from this art, some of us placed our bets on a new character for the upcoming Siege line, even when the drawing didn’t match the current Siege art style. However, we didn’t have any reliable source to confirm our theories.
Thanks to 2005 Boards user tackertackle for his amazing detective work, we can say “Mystery solved!” and confirm that (sadly) this is no new character or toy, but an early concept art of Alpha Trion’s Titan Master Sovereign.
This is a very unusual but interesting turn of events.The original illustration comes from an uncolored sketch brought by artist Marcelo Matere while back in Botcon 2016. It is a very early concept art from before the final specifications for Alpha Trion and Sovereign were made. It also shows an early Alpha Trion’s ship mode which seems highly based on the Darold battle ship from Yamato 2199 anime.
Titan Master Sovereign seems to be drawn based on the Power Master Lube illustration from Dreamwave’s More Than Meets The Eye character guide. What we have seen in the Toy Adventures website is a colored merchandising art using Alpha Trion’s colors (purple, red and gray).
There you are guys, our mysterious robot identity revealed. But why and how this art was finally colored and revealed after so long on a South African website is a mystery for another time. Check the images after the jump and share your impression in our 2005 Boards!
