Thanks to artist and friend of Seibertron Ken Christiansen, we have an interesting look at concept art for one of the final Deluxes for the Siege line, Spinister! Ken has been kind enough to show us his drawings for the figure, and you can see that a few things have changed between concept and plastic, the lower legs especially, as Ken notes.

It looks so close to the final product other than the cockpit is missing a side. Were they going to try and clip the two legs together or nest? Seems unlikely as all the other parts are present and the transformation might have been the same as it is on the final product. Still very interesting stuff.

Also, can anyone with a FB account post the rest of the pics here? I tried to follow the link but got caught in a not logged in loop. Thanks ;)^

Awesome hanks, I could only see a flash before the log in popups and prompts (never seen FB so aggressive before), but saw a +3.

After seeing the alt mode sketch, I have to assume the bot mode was just off/wrong/incomplete. Makes me want to print them off and bust out the color pencils.

He’s in bellbottom blue jeans. Dammit I saw it now I can’t unsee it.

Spinister is...is....disco fabulous...the fly mauve shirt just cements it somehow.

To me it looks like they were going for a split cockpit with both legs mashed together for copter mode. That would have actually worked with the current upper torso without having to change much since the other leg with the fake cockpit tucks into the bottom where it is hidden pretty well. Really just adjust the bottom of the tail/torso section to have a finished look on the bottom if both legs were going to be the cockpit. I'm guessing they just couldn't get the proportions to work. I suspect the split cockpit would have ended up with too skinny of legs for a pretty tall bot, or too fat of a cockpit if they increase the leg thickness.

That'd probably be more appropriate for the Earthrise thread.

It is still in stock, online only, but, you need to have a Target RedCard in order to purchase. That might be why you can't complete a purchase. I went through getting a Redcard specifically for this reason when he first came out.

If you plan on getting a Redcard yourself, I would highly recommend applying in-store instead of online. You won't be able to use the card online until it actually arrives, and the in-store application/verification process seems to go quicker than online. On top of that, Target often gives some type of incentive when you apply in-store that they don't give online. In my case it was a $40 off your next purchase coupon, so my Redwing (plus a small gift for my daughter) ended up being free. That deal is no longer going on, but they may have another to make the hassle a little more worth it.

With this restock, what are the chances of returns being found on the shelves again? That's how I got mine without a REDCard ;)

Hmm, maybe try from a computer. That is what I was looking it up from, and it still shows available, and let me at least try to complete an order. I already have one I didn't go any further.

Y'all better knock it off with this Redwing crap, youre going to tempt me into getting a Redcard :lol: Speaking of things im tempted by, my local walmart has two Soundblasters yet and I am debating if its worth it. Im quite happy with my Titans Return/Bumblebee movie Soundwave, but that different size and black/gold/red color scheme is looking really slick. Is he worth it?

He's still available at both RobotKingdom and Action Robo, circumventing the Red Card altogether.

I just grabbed Soundblaster today. He's a pretty good figure. My only issue is that the chest door is designed to hold two of the cassettes, but it's a VERY snug fit and makes it hard to remove if you put two in

Yeah, almost broke a new ratbat trying to get the cassettes out, definitely not a good idea
