Legacy Velocitron Shadowstrip & Crasher Concept Images & Details

Just up on Instagram page, Hasbro Designer Sam Smith @kingsamlock has shared some new concept images and design notes on the Transformers Legacy Velocitron Speedia 500 Collection Shadowstrip & Crasher figures. Check out the full report from Sam along with lots of concept renders of both figures and video spins as well that follow.

VELOCITRON SPEEDIA 500 Collection Wave 2

I love to follow Formula 1, so when the opportunity arose to help tackle some race car deco schemes to support wave 2 of the Velocitron Speedia 500 collection, I was eager to help out. It’s only fitting that I would write this up while watching qualifying for the São Paulo GP.

Check out Crasher and Shadowstrip here together and be sure to check them out individually in each of their respective post.

It’s race weekend, will you be watching? LET’S GO!!!

VELOCITRON SPEEDIA 500 G2 Universe Shadowstrip

Okay, let’s talk G2 Shadowstrip! If this character doesn’t look or sound familiar, it is likely due to the fact that he is based on an unreleased G2 toy redeco of Dragstrip. He’s an amazing livery to revisit, and he fits in right at home for this Speedia 500 collection.

With Dragstrip being able to throw off some classic Tyrrell P34 inspired vibes with its six wheeled Formula 1 design, a black and gold heritage colored livery is very at home on this redeco.

Knowing the color separation of the molded parts were established for Dragstrip, I wanted to get some sort of checkerboard striping to the side of the vehicle that wouldn’t too disrupted by the split chassis acting as a seam down the side. I ended up with a waving checkered flag design that accentuates the gold used through out the rest of the vehicle.

The robot mode brings forth some of the tertiary blue color used on the blasters and the windscreen, and is finished off with a bright red visor and some bright gold accents to the chest and knees.

What do you think of Shadowstrip? Do you enjoy his as an entirely new character? Or do you just think of him as being G2 Dragstrip?

VELOCITRON SPEEDIA 500 Deception Crasher

Time to talk Deception Crasher after months of images of this character popping up at retailers all around the world, it was great to see her show up on Hasbro Pulse for an official release.

Crasher has some obscure transformers history, spawning from her comic debut in the early 2000s but more importantly in her inception as a GoBot where she was depicted as a Porsche 956. But something that never changed for her was the black, red and white color scheme.

This depiction of Crasher utilizes the kingdom Mirage tooling and features and alternate head that was already a part of the molds. It makes for a distinct look and helps to capture some of Crashers unique attributes. The heavy black eye-line also really help to highlight her yellow eyes.

Overall its a very fun vehicle livery that had to work with in the constraints of the original mirage mold layouts. Crashers design allow for the red accent colors to accentuate the stark contrast of the white and black, and uses more subtle gray metallics to deliver a refreshing new Decepticon race car.

How do you feel about this design? Have you been waiting for a new Crasher figure? Let me know in the comments!
