As a lover of spiders, I was elated when Skrapnel was unveiled in the Transformers Earth Wars mobile game. However, he hasn't gotten a figure that fits in my collection yet, so here we are. I'm designing him to go with New Age's awesome Insecticons (yes, spiders are arachnids not insects), which look like they came straight off of the Sunbow model sheets. This presents a fun, dual-challenge of redesigning a character to fit a different aesthetic style, as well as creating it to scale with existing products. This will be the most complex design I've done yet, but thankfully New Age's figures are so well designed and made that they serve as a great blueprint to follow. I'm about a week into the design, with his robot arm finished, and alt mode roughed out. I'll post updates here as it progresses.
