As has become a regular occurrence, artist Ken Christiansen has been uploading more lineart he provided for Hasbro to use on Transformers packaging - with colours done by Volta, the company headed by Sara Pitre Durocher - and we get to see a few more characters from Combiner Wars, including newcomer Rook and the Combaticons Onslaught, Brawl, and Blast Off!

Additionally, fellow artist Marcelo Matere has also uploaded his take on packaging art for the combined form of the Protectobots: Defensor, and the Combiner Wars bizarre creation (in both the toyline and the comics event) Galvatronus. Check it all out below!

That’s Blast Off’s packaging art with Firefly’s head.

We have been betrayed.

But... but... why?! :-(

If Blast Off had used the Firefly head, he'd have been the first of only two straight redecos in general retail (next to Smokescreen, with Quickslinger as an exclusive instead); the rest all had switched out parts, I guess that played a slight part. Good to know that head was at least considered...

How was Votex different from Alpha Bravo?

OK, first, shared with Votrex, of three. :oops: In my defense, I didn't consider Alpha Bravo because he isn't a Classic Aerialbot member.

I guess I just know that a lot of people would’ve preferred the Firefly head. The perfect one for Blast Off would’ve been Slingshot’s with a faceplate.

And let’s be honest, Alpha Bravo was a Vortex redeco.

By the by, the Galvatronus image was originally posted under "Maelstrom". What's up with that?

Preliminary name, perhaps?

From l to r: CW, CW Box Set, UW

The UW one features the toy-accurate retooling, while both CW ones keep the Silverbolt detailing.

I have both :TAKARATOMY: UW-08 and the :HASBRO: CW Computron. Originally I felt there would never be a need to get the stand alone CW Scattershot release, until this:

Uh...no... (Pssst...look at my wish list), a guy can dream though right? ;)

O yeah, UW Scattershot comes with newly tooled weapons as well, instead of Silverbolt's gun.

I hope Hasbro sees fit to release the new toolings....

I should have been more clear. I saw all those images, but strangely enough, NONE of them show all three in Torso mode... I want to see the differences in torso mode.

Does this help? The one on the right is wearing the Perfect Effect add-on kit, which replaced the head and chest pieces, but should otherwise be a good comparison. First image shows PE Kit without faceplate, second with. The original head is on the ground in front of him.

Now, if you want me to tell you which is which...I'm not sure.... :-s

I wiah they hadn't included the PE kit, but thanks!

Left is the Takara UW one, middle is the seperately sold C.W. Scattershot, right must be the Hasbro Computron boxed set Scattershot.

This does make me happy I got the UW set. I saw the middle one for sale for €10,- locally, and wondered if he was different enough to grab. He seems to have the Superion head, and is sometimes used to form Betatron. Meh. Not sure. He may be nice to combine with random deluxes, such as Jazz. We'll see what PotP further brings us.
