    Artist Ken Christiansen has shared more of his Combiner Wars Packaging Art this week and we collect them for your viewing pleasure in our forums.

    The images were shared via Ken Christiansen’s Facebook account as usual and we can appreciate the full and complete body art for Combiner Wars packaging art. This week, we have a look at another the components of Optimus Maximus with Sunstreaker, and we also get Trailbraker who is part of Sky Reign. About Trailbraker, Ken tells us: “I really tried to get a Force Field Face in here, but it was a no-go”. It seems, we will also see the Autobot warriors who form Sky Reign any time soon.

    You can check out all our previous round ups and the new images on the news post below:

    I honestly wonder if he had some sort of limit on poses when drawing these. Like they must cover X% of a set area no bigger the Y. I wonder because these poses are... interesting.

    Remember they all had to fit onto a standard-size comic book cover.

    I kinda feel like thats not really good enough. Lots of artists have done better stuff for cover art. What I mean is was he told to fit it within a shape that had to account for a blerb, branding UPC codes etc, so he didn't have just a square space.

    Probably has rules to not obscure a certain percentage of the figure as well...

    Sucks about the Forcefield Face, but props to the artist for trying!

    Hey, you try coming up with unique poses for dozens of figures that have to fit within a certain size image and has to resemble a toy.
