Hasbro designer @markclonus to the rescue with yet another awesome behind the scenes look at the Transformers Legacy Minerva! Mark's got the concept images and design notes posted for us all to see how this new figure came about. Read on to see Mark's report with images of Legacy Minerva prototypes and more to follow.
Another character that was definitely on my to-do list for a while now, I’m pretty hyped how she turned out. It was a design challenge to make an Elita One that would eventually be redeco’d as a Minerva. But, if that was the only way I was getting this figure, welp, challenge accepted! She was a perfect fit for a exclusive (I think Walgreens but gotta talk to @bmacatron84 , we’ve tried to keep the theming to medics(scientists) started with Titans Return Brainstorm I believe)
This has been the first time I purposely left a blaster in clear with no tint color. Since the ambulance needed the blue windshield and the lightbar needed the red tint, I thought, 🤔, why can’t energon be translucent clear, perhaps an energon we’ve never encountered before. I made sure her other rifle blaster resembled its original look and was painted a nice glossy black.
Make sure you get your hands on the medic repair welder that was released with our Target exclusive Red Cog. It will really do wonders for playing out battlescenes where Minerva and Ratchet can help some autobots repair some damaged transistors on the battlefield.
Who will the crazy inter dimensional spacebridge portal spit out next!?!? Isnt this fun!!! What sort of Evolution will happen to our heroes next! Will the energon infused weapons be combined and utilized to vaporize cybertron? Will an evil mastermind use a mega energon infused device to mind control an army to reign supreme!?!?
Stay tuned in…same bot time…same bot channel
The listing disappeared:
Hopefully the website will be fixed soon.
Was this even in stock? I just went to the site and it's out of stock completely. I just read your article in detail. So it wasn't in stock.
Sigh, I'm one of the few that had a hasbro pulse premium membership (that got extended several weeks, so I didn't even realize that I still had it), and I had life get in the way of being online and on pulse during the hour that it was available to purchase.
As someone who has the original Nightbeat, and ranks it as one of my all time favorite figures, I'd really like to have this version of Minerva.
I really wish Hasbro made this more of a fun hobby, you know, maybe like list the figures and let them know that we want it, and maybe even do pre-orders far in advance, layaway payments, or full payments or something. I would have put $25 down on Minerva months ago just to have it shipped to me and not deal with the retailer nonsense.
It seems like if it's not an Amazon exclusive then the figure is difficult to obtain, with the exception of this years Target exclusives. Unless of course you are able to order off the 10% Hasbro Pulse store stock before it sells out.
Sorry for venting.
Aw, man! I really wanted this one! Guess we'll just have to wait. Again.
