SKYSCORCHERS – unseen Hasbro artwork

Over on the Kapow Blog, I’ve been doing lots of TF centric articles about various Japanese, late G1 /G2, and Brave toys.

Check them out, two new blogs every week showcasing various different sublines and rarities including:
Deathsaurus and Red Geist,
Grandus and Dagbase
Liokaiser,
Axelerators,
The Laser-Rods
and many others.

This weekends blog is a look at the Skyscorchers from Late Euro 1.5 and G2.  Check it out here.

As a special crossover between this blog and the Kapow blog, exclusive to this site are some rare paperwork shots showing the Skyscorchers artwork as they were being developed for the G2 US packaging.  Including original notes from Hasbro, and in the case of Snipe, some reworking of his artwork which redrawn sections being stuck over the original art.

Did you notice the Decepticon logo drawn on Snipe’s chest?  Barely perceptible on the packaging artwork (seen in the amazing Transformers Legacy book).

I hope you enjoyed this look at some rare artwork, and please check out my in depth look at various Transformers releases on the Kapow Blog.

Thanks for looking!
