So I read that this was being made into a toy? wow, and I thought only 3rd party companies take stuff without giving any notice, acknowledgement or compensation..

FYI: hasbro nor idw solicited me to do this design, I did it on my own. I originally came up with a different design seen here: www.deviantart.com/art/ATB-Meg… it was a sample for a story idea I was going to pitch to then editor Andy Schmidt. he turned me down because he said they have years of story already set in stone. so no biggie.
a couple of months later he comes to me and says they wanted to use the design. I said cool, lemme update it and the final image above was the result. I again asked if I can pitch a story, even if it’s not TF related, he said yes and he’ll come down to Long Beach Comic-con for a sit down. I went, but he never showed up. and that was that.
