You all may remember when a Unite Warriors Victorion was teased with the Lynx Master comic? Well, TFYuki seems to want to tease us a bit more. He recently took to Twitter to show off a face sketch of the potential upcoming combiner. We eagerly await more news, so for the time being, check out the image below, and let us know what you think in the comments section!

That's... definitely Victorion's face on purple paper.

Not saying I'm opposed to the idea, it's just that this doesn't reveal anything new.

What we know so far of the character is that she and her components are Decepticons, and her torso component (the Pyra Magna mold) is the "wife of the Emperor of Destruction".

Guesses about component character identities are the obvious idea of Dust Up being made into Nightbird, and Pyra Magna being made into the only known "wife of the Emperor of Destruction" there is: Esmeral (Deszaras's wife).

Very curious to see what comes of this figure's overall scheme and theme.

Is this the same as her toy head? I forget. Everyone draws her with a different head every time. 8-}

Looks to be the toy head, yes.

I was gonna say, retooling Victorion would kind of defeat the purpose of the release, right? Introducing American heads Japan hasn't gotten yet?

I'm a bit more tempted to say this is Esmeral now since there seems to be an attempt to draw a second pair of eyes above her actual eyes; much like her animal helmet she shares with Deathsaurus and the rest of the Breastforce.

Interesting...More Deceptifemmes is always good. I might be tempted to get this. I'd never combine her though. (Combiner? I hardly knew 'er!)

Heh heh, thanks. :lol:

Speaking of Vicky and her...robust proportions, I did a (very crude) digibash to try and give an idea of how she SHOULD look if she got an original mold rather than being a somewhat lazy retool (granted this would probably be completely impossible to achieve, but in an ideal world in which, say, Maketoys did an all-new mold version of her, this would be a good framework for her overall silhouette).

Image

(Yes my photomanipulation skills are terrible. So sue me.)

But anyway, my ideas for improving Vicky:
>She needs narrower shoulders.
>The copter tails, rather than forming broad 80s shoulder pads, could instead go vertical and form Evangelion/Gunbuster-esque shoulder pylons, thus still remaining intimidating/imposing whilst not just looking manly.
>She needs an overall narrower body, especially the waist (to compensate for this she should have a longer torso and limbs so she isn't too petite).
>Her lower legs should be slimmer.

As for some things I couldn't 'shop on because I suck with GIMP:
>Rather than having sheer mass, she should improve her overall silhouette with lots of protruding things- fins, antenna, guns, blades, the previously mentioned shoulder pylons etc.
>Alternatively she could still have big ol' shoulders, but rather than just having broad shoulders, she should have more normal feminine shoulders, and make up for it with big ol' shoulder pads which are obviously separate from her actual shoulders.
>If she must have heels (which personally I don't think she needs) they should be longer, pointier and less blocky.
>Overall, she could stand to look less like a traditional Scramble City combiner and more like something a bit more...elegant? Refined? Here's a few mecha designs I think would be good for drawing inspiration from for a theoretical "new" Victorion toy.

(One of the mecha from Five Star Stories, AKA the most gorgeous looking mecha series ever)
Image
(Detonator Orgun, one of Masami Obari's mecha designs)
Image
(The Qubeley from Zeta Gundam)
Image
(The ANIMA design of Evangelion Unit 01)

The sword is cool as is but I wish the individual weapons were less awful (aside from the war pick and the two swords).

I don't... really see much of a problem with how Victorion currently is aside from of course the small hands/feet and the general problems the molds themselves have (without PE feet the Hot Spot/Onslaught torso has a severely bad case of fat legs). It's nice to have a bulky female in Transformers for the first time since Strika; I honestly think Pyra Magna alone is my favourite female TF design in Transformers right now.

So your solution to her having nonstandard proportions is a redisign by Obari or Nagano, both if whom are known for their nonstandard propiirtions...

It's a bit odd man. That ssuper svelte waist doesn't really match up with giamongous hips. But hey, if thats how you like your femmebots, whatever floats your boat.

Nagano and Obari are both wicked designers, but they feel very different from both eachother and from transformers for me. Except japanese G1 and braves, which are obari as F.

Out of curiousity, whats your stance on Okawara, Katoki, Kawamori and Shinkawa?

Well the problem isn't so much nonstandard proportions and more that she has very standard...male proportions. I dunno, I really like aesthetic variety, and Victorion being Blocky Robot #84647 is kinda...dull. But then I have very strange tastes- I'd like to see an Abominus with digitigrade legs, hooves and Gigeresque Kenner Alien style sculpting.

It's a bit odd man. That ssuper svelte waist doesn't really match up with giamongous hips. But hey, if thats how you like your femmebots, whatever floats your boat.

Heh heh. In all honesty that shoop was a really bad job on my part. I think I should have rounded off the hips a bit.
Nagano and Obari are both wicked designers, but they feel very different from both eachother and from transformers for me. Except japanese G1 and braves, which are obari as F.
Yeah I see what you mean. But then I'm a huge fan of Brave/J-G1 designs.
Out of curiousity, whats your stance on Okawara, Katoki, Kawamori and Shinkawa?

Kawamori is awesome. He's an actual engineer so most of his designs "work". I'm one of the few that loves MP-03's design.

Katoki's the Five Star Stories bloke right? I love love LOVE those designs. They're so bloody REGAL.

Yoji Shinkawa is cool as hell. I actually considered buying one of the cheaper transforming ZotE Revoltechs and customizing it into a Cybertronian Thunderblast.

Kunio Okawara is pretty great. IIRC he did most of the 0079 Gundam designs, which for the most part I love.

Another mecha designer I love is Yamashita (AKA the guy who does the mecha designs for Evangelion). He does some really, really cool art.


TLDR: I really love seeing differing aesthetics/design cues in Transformers, and I wish there was more variety amongst the combiners- Victorion being the first all-female SC combiner I wish she was more unique designwise.

Actually, Hajime Katoki is the modern gundam designer. He's the chap behind the mastergrade toyline and the Unicorn gundam. Think huge long legs.

Mamoru Nagano who designed the quebeley and most of the outlandish Z and ZZ era gundam designs is responsible for the FSS mecha designs. (fun fact: he's married to the VA for Quess from CCA & Beltorchika from Z.)

I share your enthusiasm for Shouji Kawamori, particularly his work on armored core. I love his stylish realist designs. Though a lot of his mechs all suffer from limited hip articulation, only forward and backwards, no in/out or rotation!

The more you know!

EDIT: Added first names for the designers, for ease of googling for the uninitiated.

Ah, I thought I was getting something wrong. I do like Katoki's designs though, controversial in some circles though they are.

And yeah, I reckon the limited outward hip movement on Kawamori robots is a result of one of two things:

1: Actual mechanical limitations, as his designs are extremely "realistic" (the Valkyrie is THE definitive transforming plane robot, but most toys of it suffer in the leg department due to the complex leg transformation).
2: His undying fetish for hip-pods (which I share).

So what do we got going for us...

Pyra Magna = Esmeral
Dust Up = Nightbird
Jumpstream = Nightracer
Skyburst = Airachnid (too much to hope for probably...)
Stormclash = Bayonet (too much to hope for probably...)

In any case after the absolute madness of Grand Galvatron I wouldn't say there's many things that are "too much to hope for". Especially if this IS Esmeral, who has a completely different body frame.

From the looks of the Decepti-Victorion head sketch, it looks like they're gonna be painting an extra set of beast eyes on her helmet to emulate the eyes of the bird kaiju helmet her husband wore.
