A very cool piece of news to share with you today coming via Gregory Titus Illustration
. On top of the massive amount of infomation of the behind the scenes work that went into the packaging and art design of the Age of Extinction toy line, we have a first look at the package art for Junkheap
as well as sketches for the robot modes of Slug
, which were originally going to be used for the packaging. On top of all that, there are also sketches of alternate character poses and slightly different character designs as well.
From the Gregory Titus Illustration page:
This project was an absolute monster. Pilot was brought in about 18 months before the movie came out. Though well into the design phase of all the Transformers characters, none were completed. We were working with concepts, designs, information, and deadlines that were constantly changing. It was an amazing challenge that we all rose to in typical Pilot fashion. We were brought in for everything, a total overhaul and rebrand of a toy line plagued with different packaging styles for a decade. We were tasked with uniting them under a single, new, and simplified Transformers banner and provide all designs and illustrations to go with it.
