Hasbro's Studio Series desginer Sam Smith @king_samlock drops in with more concept images and details on the making of the Transformers: Rise Of The Beast toys. Today he's shared the design notes on the Leader Scrouge figure. Check out the behind the scenes on this figure from the TF7 movie that is coming to screens in June 2023. The TF7 Rise of the Beasts Scourge is avilable for preorder now from our sponsors:
“POWER IS PRIMAL”
Glad to finally have Scourge get an official reveal, along with having some great photography to show off some of the awesome light piping effects brought throughout this design.
Scourge as a character was a lot of fun to work on and produced a number of challenges to overcome throughout the design process. Based on the artwork that we started this character from, there was a lot of emphasis on the use of a glowing orange energy that was emitting from the core of the engine block, grill and cab. (Think the furnace in the basement from the first Home Alone film, Terrifying!) We tried to replicate this in the product with translucent orange plastic and we used a gradient fade to the grill to retain some subtlety to the vehicle mode.
We also knew that we were going to have some alternate arms for Scourge. The concept art depicted a large bladed scythe that he would carry in his right hand, along with an arm cannon that would transform into a large grabber claw.
Kunihiro did an incredible job of establishing a complex design plan for the transformation, and solving for a number of the discrepancies between the vehicle and robot forms. Additionally Kunihiro came up with an awesome solution for the arm cannon to allow for a transformation to recreate the plow and barrels that sit on the back of the vehicle form.
For Scourge’s deco, we worked with a pretty dark and drab color palette. To help recreate some of the unique matte finishes, we sandblasted the vehicle molds to make it feel more worn and distressed. Once we had applied all of the base colors , we focused the remaining paint operations to applying weathering and secondary color pops with elements like the chains that are used throughout the robot and alt modes. Lastly, to avoid breaking the apocalyptic vibe that this whole design emanates, we assembled it with black pins and screw hardware.
NOTE: I won’t be sharing full Screen to Toy asset breakdowns prior to the films release out of respect to our studio partnerships.
So in this step back to the Bayverse era Scourge is Tarn lol
