Following on from the Kabor update to TheVisionaries.net we are pleased to bring you are 2nd gallery of Season 2 2-up hardcopy weapons, this time belonging to the Spectral Knight, Lazorlash
Once again we use Witterquick as an example of the size of the 2-up.
We do not have the 2-up of the axe for Lazorlash but the shield is an interesting one in itself. Not only is it held in an unusual manner, we believe that the "broken piece" is part of a gun which he can hold enabling him to attach the shield and hold it in a more traditional fashion.
Sadly we do not have all of that piece (if you do, please let us know), but if you look at the Toy Fair image you will be able to work out how it would have worked.

Hi everyone, as you may or may not not, my brother and I have been slowly revamping our Visionaries website in preparation for a big relaunch. The project has been heavily delayed due to work commitments but it is starting to come together now as we start to put together the articles and reviews to go with the images and information we've been amazing over the last 14 years.
Yesterday we decided to pushed live the images which accompany a review that we published on the 1st Feb 2015 which covers the Season 2 character Kabor. This is the first gallery to contain images of some of our resin 2-up hardcopies of the Season 2 characters weapons.
We'll be adding the other characters over time along with more in-depth articles covering the brand from its inception through to the modern era. We've already published our article on "Visionaries: Reborn" along with the toy ads but there is a lot more to come which will include plenty of things you have not seen before. But that is for another day.
When looking at the images in the gallery you will notice that Kabor was originally going to be called "Cliffdweller" and that rather than coming with an axe, as he is shown in the Toy Fair photographs, it was originally planned for him to come with a gun. The change over to the axe was late in production as now only was the gun sculpted, the 2-up is included in the gallery, but the Neal Adams artwork was converted into the final box art. We have included a copy of that artwork as well though we hope to re-scan it again at some point in the future.
We are still investigating when and why the change was introduced. The axe does suit the character better in our opinion, and the gun does look a little odd, but we hope to be able to confirm the reasons.
I thought I would share it here as I know some members also like the Visionaries brand so I thought you may be interested in seeing more about the "lost" series.

We have updated our sister website The Visionaries.net with a brand new article which takes a look at the Toy TV Spots which were produced for the short-lived 1980s Hasbro licensed property. Whilst researching some of the history of the TV Spots we held a conversation with former Griffin-Bacal employee Robert Rundbaken where we learnt a more about the history of the Transformers toy TV spots than the Visionaries ones. We shall publish those details via a news story right here on Transformers At The Moon in the next couple of days. For now thoughyou can read the Visionaries article here.
The Visionaries.net is currently being revamped so most of the content is offline, but you will find some preview articles and contentw which we have pubilshed prior to the official relaunch.
