    Concept Artist and Illustrator Wesley Burt has shared some concept art he developed for Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Wesley worked on a number of different things throughout the pre-production phase of the film, focusing on generating early visual ideas with the direction of Michael Bay and production designer Nigel Phelps. The concept art shows a variety of ideas, different directions, and solutions that were experimented with for elements of the story that were coming together at the same time.

    Oh wow, those Wheeljack concepts are pretty fun! Like how the hood of a convertible turns into a lab coat!

    Not a fan of most trailer concepts, but the one where his entire truck+trailer turns into a giant Stealth Force tank is PURE win! :D

    Optimus Prime: I'm in a chair, takin' your faces

    The old art for driller looks like its face is made out of tires.

    I think I like those 'Steeljaw' concepts better than how Q turned out in the film.

    And Undermine is cool. He's like a decepticon that refuses to die, despite being decapitated. I thought the character looked like a bit of a mutated freak, but I imagine he was once a mighty warrior.

    This must be why Optimus rips the faces apart.

    The Wheeljack concepts are great! Just like Prime holding a BFG and his "Beast Wars Megatron" mode. XD that one would be sick to see on-screen. ;) 
    thank you so much for posting these!

    That full trailer Stealth Force for Prime is amazing, I would love to see that in a future video game or comic.

    Why is it that nearly every piece of concept for what Prime's trailer might do is cooler than what it actually did in the movie?

    Jesus...Wheeljack actually looks like 'Q'.

    Who decided to change this?!?!

    Also Prime's trailer is badass. Why is it that they can take just beautiful concept art and it turns into crap by the time the movie/toy rolls around.

    Mercedes-Benz offered Bay money to put their cars in the film, and Michael Bay said "I like money".

    Not a big fan of those Wheeljack heads, I'm perfectly happy with what they chose for the final film. But that whole 'lab-coat' thing is pretty cool.

    I like a lot of those Laserbeak head designs more than the final one.
