    He is freelance designer/illustrator.
    He designed some stuff for Takara's tokusatsu program
    ("Tsukaima" in "Madan Senki Ryukendo")
    but He relate to No TF product development.

    While it's exciting to see this, and I did like the character, it doesn't seem like anything particularly special as these things go. It wouldn't make it very high on my list of most-wanted unmade TFA figures.

    I wouldn't have wanted Constructicons without combining capability anyway. (although there does seem to be a sort of 3-pin socket underneath his con symbol, suggesting it may have been an attachment point)

    as neat as that design is. that thing is all back kibble. there's just no way for all that mass to be held up by 2 leg stumps.

    According to his blog he drew it after "Three's a Crowd" was aired on Oct 23th 2010 in Japan.
    It is only a fan art.

    That's sweet. I hope we see some similar sketches of the other two constructicons so I can print them out and cry on them. :(

    Yeah, actually it's not really that great of a design at all. There is probably a much better way to work all of the vehicles mass into the actual bot-mode. Maybe have the head recessed deeper in and the botom panles fold up over the cab of the forklift. That way most of that ends up as the actual body mass.
    That's how I'd do it, anyway.

    Still kind of neat to see, though.

    If the back kibble could be folded up a little more efficiently (some way to flatten the cab down towards his neck) then it would be great, seeing as the forks are supposed to wind up on his back.

    I always thought (hypothetically) that Dirt Boss and the Headmaster unit (in a transforming version) could've worked nicely in the Activators line.

    Kinda interesting that this fan-design is a good deal less squatty and stumpy than the animation design of DB hisself. It comes dangerously close to having an actual head. :)
