Toy concept artist Emiliano Santalucia has updated his blog with some information about the box art he produced for Hasbro's SDCC exclusive Bludgeon! Check out what he has to say and the image below, and Seibertron's galleries of the figure here.

An unusual job for me at Hasbro: boxart!
The team needed a new illustration to complete the Tech Specs on the back of the box for the 2013 Transformers San Diego Comic-Con Exclusives Bludgeon and I was privileged to provide it!
The requirement was to make the illustration looking like the vintage Transformers box art as much as possible.
To achieve that, working digitally, I used realistic airbrushes in Painter and added noise in Photoshop.
Then I also tried to "age" the colors a bit, so there would be a hint of green in some grays and a hint of yellow in thew withes.
Despite the actual figure being a G.I.Joe repaint, I was asked to reference more the original toy and the old Marvel comics.
This is the result!
