Transformers Legacy Evolution Breakdown Behind the Scenes and In-Hand gallery
Mark Maher has shared some more behind-the-scenes details of our favorite toys, this time taking a look at the final Legacy Stunticon, Breakdown. We get the usual in-hand gallery, including a look at a previously unseen earlier production deco.
“Here’s the breakdown on Legacy Deluxe Stunticon Breakdown. So glad everyone is able to finally finish the whole Stunticon team, another post I’ll go ham on a photoshoot of fully combined Menasor, but for now, lets talk some behind the scenes deets!
When I was first told we had to redeco Wildrider into Breakdown, I was a little weary, but a miracle happened, this wave had moved out into the start of the Legacy Evolution year. I’m suped that @bmacatron84 was able to keep the first year Legacy package styling so the whole stunticon team would match in prestine mint box editions for your shelf. I was also incredibly suped that we got a new tool so we could add some more Breakdown flavor to the Wildrider body.
Hats off to the incredible supreme master Hasui san from Takara Tomy for stepping in on this guy and making him look stellar! He drew up the design plan and I really loved the animation accurate head design along with the chest and waist details. We both felt the spoiler was needed so he came up with this cool evolution fusion to make an handheld axe blade, WICKED! 😎🤘🏻I was hoping to shell over the canopy on the vehicle mode but alas the new mold was jam packed full.
I threw in a comparison shot of how this guy first came in with production deco at our engineering pilot stage. I thought it was interesting that the front bumper was bright metallic blue and the front color design is drastically different from my deco spec. The process is a wild ride, ahem, 😝! I did paint the eyes to bring him more to life as the light piping just didn’t have the color pop I was looking for.
Oh yeah, I knabbed a sample from @king_samlock s stash to get Shadow Strip in the mix. These two just look kinda sick together I thought. I meannnnnn, the whole stunticon squad, together, oooowweeee!!!
What combiner shall enter the battle next? Sound off below!
