    This is a great gift our great friend and artist Emiliano Santalucia made us in Transformers Italia and he gave me the permission to link here too (after he had the permission from his boss in Hasbro) :) 

    This is the link to his blog...

    http://santalux.blogspot.it/2012/11/thundetron-concept-sketches.html

    Emiliano works for Hasbro and other big brands and these are the original sketches that after became the toy we all love... Enjoy !

    Okay, I dig that. If I ever get this mold I might even be tempted to tackle it and give it those battlescars.

    Some say he looks like a Viking... I can see that. But he really reminds me of a Draenei from WoW. Very cool though to see the concept work.

    Is this the guy who does a lot of MOTU art?

    Edit: Ok I see He-Man at the top of his blog. I guess that's him.
