, who previously worked as a designer with Hasbro, has shared some concepts of some exclusive Transformers designs which never saw the light of day.
The first of these designs was a Generation 2 style Megatron, using the Universe Galvatron as a base. For this release, Erik designed a head inspired by Megatron in the then-current IDW comics, and a sword weapon based on the original Japanese Megatron release.
The second was a version of classic character Triggerhappy, using Universe Cyclonus. Triggerhappy would have moved the quad cannons from the sides of the jet / robot arms to the robot's head, and these could swivel down to give Triggerhappy ear-mounted firepower! Plus the general head design looks particularly awesome.
Both the Megatron and the Triggerhappy were cancelled early in the process, before any sculpts were done. It's a pity, because while the Galvatron mold was weak, a Megatron one would have been a welcome addition, and the Triggerhappy looks plain cool. A big personal shout out and thank you to Erik for sharing these with the community.Read Replies (0)
