Courtesy of Hasbro designer Mark “Markclonus” Maher, via his Instagram account, we can share for you our first in-hand images of the new Transformers Velocitron Cosmos plus some concept art images of the toy. As usual, Mark has also shared some comments about the development of this figure including the early idea of using the Buzzworthy Bumblebee Origin Bumblebee as a base for Cosmos. Read all about it below:
Do you believe?!?!Here he is folks, in all of his cybertronian glory! COSMOS!
Lets get into it! For capsule programs and the mainline as a whole, we have certain allocated funds for new molds. I wanted a Cosmos badly, to further finish the deluxe minibots collection, but just because I love this guy. His voice, design aesthetic, colors, and especially his alt mode are all 🔥
Swipe right and you will see how I sold him in as a partial tool using the Origins BB mold. He would of been more of a new rendition of him. I just didnt think a g1 version of him was possible with the tooling allocated. But TT made it happen All NEW in 3 molds!!!
Ittoku Kuwazu worked closely with Hasui Shogo in making this guy the best Cosmos evah! I chimed in on making the flag alt as a blaster and really worked hard on getting the proportions as close to his animation appearance as possible. As you can see from block model to final look, a lot had to happen. But with our great partnership this guy is ready to officiate the Speedia 500.
Let me know who you are routing for to become the new leader of Velocitron!!!
