    I've been digging around in my old Transformers papers and I found these old Beast Machines pages from the old Fox Kids Magazine I used to get. Anyone know if there is more concept art like this for Beast Machines on the web?

    I also have this from another Fox Kids issue. Hope these can be enjoyed.

    That's cool, never seen it before. I've come to appreciate Beast Machines, but the more robotic designs look killer.

    Primal looks so much better in the concept art that on the show itself. He was the one character redesign I still can't stand, and his religious zealot personality sucked too.

    I loved this show! the only thing I "can't stand" is the fact that the transformers in the series don't actually transform. they look like they go ghost from Danny Phantom the ring and then magically different. But the shows amazing nonetheless.

    It's actually pretty obvious that the early BM toys were based heavily on the concept art.

    Based on what I remember, there was a bit of a rush on Beast Machines, so Hasbro/Takara and Mainframe both started with the same concept art, and ended up at somewhat different places, without as much opportunity to confer and fix issues in the early production phase.

    :drool:  Do you have this one (or any of the others) in higher res?

    Is it possible that Scavenger was going to appear on the show?

    I heart all of the BM / Transtech designs.

    Nope, sorry. Don't even remember where I got them :( 

    And from what I remember, Scavenger was gonna be on the show, but was cancelled because of budget reasons or something like that. Dunno if he was gonna be a general or Tankor's drones, though (I think the original plan was that each general would have different unit types).
