he's called high score 100.
MMC prints credits on each box in the Ocular Max line for all the various creatives involved. So the ones that have an "AK" credit are ones he had a hand in (don't have them all handy to reference atm).
Finally got around to reading the article. Unfortunately though I have no doubt of his brilliance, it reminds me of why I hate listening to artists talk.
It's not their talent I doubt, it's the inability to convey the concept into language and back.

Thanks man! Maybe it's time I dive into Ocular Max...
This is a neat read.
Now I want to see the insider on who keeps thinking that transparent plastic is good for load-bearing joints on a figure, I have choice words for them.
I thought jesslynnMMC was the lead designer for Terrageis?
I was going to comment on this when it first popped up, but I completely forgot to.
2007 Deluxe Bumblebee was probably my favorite Transformers toy growing up, I remember being wowed when I first transformed it. The 2007 line was already a major step forward in terms of complexity, but I truly believe this figure was the one that ushered in a new era for the brand. There was just a certain innovative quality to it, and it was very visually pleasing in both modes.
I really like how this designer sees the transformations as an art of it's own, and understands to make it fun. I wish the designers would be credited on the toy packages, I've never really understood why they're not. Is there anyplace I can go to see a list of Transformers designers, and what toys they designed? I'd be really interested in something like that...
I could have sworn she did Backdraft. I seem to recall some of the harsher criticism of that figure is why she doesn't come to the boards anymore.
Yeah could be. I could've sworn she was in the Terrageis thread when I was evaluating the Trailbreaker options. But maybe she handled the sculpt and Alexander K was the main designer.
Alex is a great designer. His work on the original 2007 deluxe Camaro Bumblebee has been echoing through every other movie Camaro Bumblebee (and TF: Prime Bumblebee) toy since.
Yeah, Jesslyn did the sculpt and refining, Alex did the basic model and transformation scheme.
