The image mirrored below depicts Victorion in her combined form and the vehicles that make up her combiner team. Pyra Magna, Dust up, Jumpstream, Stormclash and Skyburst are all in vehicular mode. (We wonder where Rust Dust drove off to.) Here is what the artist had said about some of the design process that went into this piece -
Victorion - Combiner Wars Package art Pencils. 2015 - Full Poster.I had to draw all elements separately, them the designers could arrange them to the Horizontal Package and the Vertical Poster!

I also noticed that Victorion in the line art does not have Rust Dust on her chest, but on the finished poster she has an armor plate that kinda looks like her. Either way I am really glad they included her, she is a really fun transformer and really finishes off how Victorion looks in robot mode.
I think my love of small transformers is because of Rust Dust. I never bought any on my own before I got the Victorion set. I had assumed that bigger bots meant better articulation and stuck with deluxe/warrior on up. Now I am the proud owner of several other really fun small transformers.

This is the official pencil art that was used for the packaging, meaning that there are several more layers to the image applied by the studio that creates the final artwork - but it's always fascinating to get a look at the process involved in the creation of any type of artwork for the franchise, nonetheless. Take a look at the two deluxes from the very first wave of Combiner Wars below.

And now that we have finally found homes for those limbs — and some combiner names and stories from Hasbro, Botcon and TFCC — I'm a lot more excited to have those guys attached to Modulus, Galvatronus, or Wreckage.

This is the official pencil art that was used for the packaging, meaning that there are several more layers to the image applied by the studio that creates the final artwork, which Ken also added after each of the pencil drawings. It is really cool to see that Ken used only elements found within the toys and while the packaging artwork cropped a lot of the images, we can now see his full pencils.

I'd love to see a thread devoted to everyone's fan gestalt. Curious to see how people have paired them up... and how the colors and characters match together. Could have some ground rules that a name and short bio have to be provided with photos (?)

My Decepticon combiner unfortunately is not so palatable to the eyes but... Grand Scourge has CW Blastoff and Vortex as his arms, and for the legs -Off Road & BC 2016 Terrorsaur.

Maybe with the upcoming odd-man-out bots like Jazz, Darkwing, Dreadwind, Wreck Gar and (mystery color) Blast Off... maybe we will have some more options for our fan combiners. Of course with Inferno, we have another puzzle altogether. (ha)
Still planning my own customs to finish out Magnaboss. The sticker set was a nice idea, but didn't quite scratch the proverbial itch.
That all reminds me, still waiting on that G2 Protectobot set, Hasbro!

Be sure to check out more of it by clicking the pencil drawing of Combiner Wars Streetwise above. There's also a lot of other Transformers art on hand there too that are not packaging art that are genuinely awesome as well.

While I agree the hand reaching out or finger pointing pose is way over done, what is the alternative? The fist clenched pose that has been way overused in comics and action figure artwork for decades?
Reading a book and drinking a latte?

That was the first thing I noticed. Just double checked and they didn't correct it when the line art was colored, the comic cover has both as well. Oops.
