    It doesn't really DO anything, let alone turn into a huge robot.

    If it can move more then 2 MPH, I'll start to worry about robotic overlords. :)

    It's going to transform into a 60 foot totem pole. The concept sketches are pretty cool, i'll have to track them down. The final product looks like the stuff we have been seeing for the upcoming movie.

    I see potential here. Neat how they put the separation lines along the body contours, such that they aren't so apparent in car mode. Neat. Wish the video were more in depth, though. Thanks for sharing.

    Someone should find some footage from those giant transforming cars and trucks and stuff they have at monster truck rallys. Those things rock. Even though theyre pretty much throttlebots.

    Why all the hate? When the TV was invented it wasn't 42 inch plasma, but no one mocked it. This is a very early design for a life sized transformer.

    Except it totally isn't. It's a sculpture, not a prototype for a huge transforming robot.

    It's cool in it's own right, but it has ZERO to do with transforming robots that will most likely never exist anyway (there's no real world need for them).

    Does it transform? Then it's a transformer. Who knows what the next step could be.

    Nope, sorry. It is NOT a transformer. Changing it's shape DOES NOT automatically make it a TF.
