Hi! This is Botch, the guy behind the Transformers Box Art Archive.
If you're familiar with my site, you're probably familiar with its mascot, Botch, a Decepticon cassette that transforms into a crab.
For a long time I have wanted to produce an actual transforming Botch toy. Now that we're in the age of third-party products, I think that time has come.
I already have a tentative agreement with an established third-party TF manufacturer to mass-produce a Botch toy. Now all I need is a realistic design.
So! I'm looking for someone who can produce that design. I'm open to different formats: sculpted toy; CAD drawings; 3D image design.
- Botch should be equal in size to the other original Decepticon cassettes and therefore able to fit in Soundwave.
- That means a lot of tiny parts, like the legs and the claws (which should open and close).
- In the style of most cassettes, his (hopefully chrome) weapons will be detachable, of course.
If you think this is the right thing for you, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or message me with info about format and estimates.
A chance to design a mass-produced third-party toy for a popular fan character! Who's up for it?
For more information, and to see more images of Botch, visit the About Botch page.
UPDATE: I found a designer who I am working with. Thanks for the responses!
