TRANSFORMERS Bishoujo Megatron Designer Interview with Shunya Yamashina

Why did you make this pose? Why did you decide on this pose?

Although he is in a different position, he is a "reliable leader who has a lot of trust from his subordinates" like Optimus Prime, so I wanted to express a "reliable feeling" while making a difference between the two characters. The "Fusion Cannon Cannon" is a pose that is held on his right arm while considering the fit with the convoy. It is difficult to reproduce the angle of the chin raised and looking down in 3D, but thanks to Mr. Tsubame who was also in charge of the prototype of the convoy, it's a big deal! !! It was finished coolly.

Although her position is different from Optimus Prime's, she is still a dependable leader who is trusted by her subordinates. I wanted to express her dependability while emphasizing the differences of the two characters. The pose—holding the Fusion Cannon in her right arm—was designed to look good when displayed alongside Optimus Prime. The face with the chin up with eyes looking down can be hard to sculpt, but thanks to TSUBAME, who also worked on Optimus Prime, it turned out perfectly.

Please tell us what you were particular about modeling. Which parts of the sculpting process did you pay attention to most?

In order to give a smart image and a solid feeling like "military uniform", we asked for fine adjustments to the costumes and the edges of the hair. I think I was able to give a stoic impression from the beautifully toned legs that were particular about modeling.

I asked for fine adjustments on the edges and tips of her outfit and hair to emphasize the smart and tidy image of her military uniform. We paid particular attention to the lines of her beautifully toned legs, which I think also help to show how stoic she is.

What points do you want us to pay particular attention to? Which part would you highlight the most?

The bangs are straight bob style, Garrison cap, and dark eyeshadow to express the head. The details such as the modeling of the handle of the "Fusion Cannon Cannon" are also strongly conscious of the original Megatron. Please compare it with the cool robot figure!

Details such as the handle of the Fusion Cannon are heavily based on the original Megatron. Enjoy comparing her with the cool robot Megatron!
