    Wesley Burt just posted some preliminary concepts of Canopy as a Chicago L rail car on his Instagram. As far as I know, this is among the first of the post-movie concept art releases for TLK. Can't wait to see more in the coming months.

    I personally like this one better

    Because he appeared for like two minutes and they weren't about to blow all that CGI budget when a Long Haul retool got the job done.

    This is a really cool concept, though. I like it a lot.

    I love me some train TFs, so it saddens me that this version of Canopy wasn't used in the final film. Still, he was made so that he could be killed so I guess it makes sense just to reuse the an existing model.

    I like that he was intended to keep small TF's under his protection.

    Really like that this version has seats on his arms, with Minicons on them. Such a pity this wasn't in the movie. I would've loved to see Wheelie and Squeaks hanging around this dude.

    Cool design. Sad that we didn't see this in the movie. I hope they'll use it in a future movie for a bot (or con) with more screentime.

    Is it just me, or are the best thing about the movies the build up and reveals beforehand and then the concept art reveals afterwards? :p

    Nice, but i thought the movie canopy looked good and friendly, but Izabella couldn't stop talking and did not listen and therefore Canopy paid with his life

    Ha, ha. I enjoyed the year-long online tracking of movie news and rumours the most. I enjoyed the movie, too, but the reveals were the best part :p

    To die: reuse is fair

    But if he had lived, I think this would've been a good gentle character to counterbalance the Dirty Foursome

    I don't like much this design, face isn't worked out, but the idea of subway train TF is very interesting! He could turn into decent character. And he's so big! Think that Hasbro would cry - we can't produce a toy for him!:(  Honestly, I was crying at that scene during the second watching, because... it's a shame, he was in the Movie only for the scene of his dieing... Damn screenwriters!

    The little robots sitting in the sets on his arms are adorable yet kinda unnerving.

    100% this. If that girl would have just moved, Canopy could have survived and covered them.

    Also, wonderful art OP. Thank you for sharing.
