New bots in progress - Slash & Rippersnapper
At the end of the current saga, two new bots will join the Earth Wars! Let us share the creation process of Slash and Rippersnapper with you.

Below you'll find what we call a "paintover" - a detailed digital drawing that follows our initial concept.

We’re delighted to be part of the debut of another character in Transformers: Earth Wars - though the Generations toy of Slash has been out for a while now, this is her first appearance in digital form. Our version of Slash stays fairly true to her toy, and we hope you’ll like the personality Simon Furman penned for this new Dinobot.

Our version of Rippersnapper is based heavily on his Generations toy with some of the spirit of his G1 form showing in the arms of his alt mode. In game, he’ll be spending most of his time looking sharky - that form is just too much fun to resist!

Stay tuned for more details!

Vote for a New 5-Star Bot!<?b>
A new 5-Star Autobot and Decepticon batch is in the works and you can be part of it!
