    ROTF CONCEPT ART PNG Images pictures by BluRayHiDef - Photobucket

    I came across this a long time ago, just rediscovered it recently. Awesome stuff really. Highlights include:

    - Images of the third Twin who would have joined Skids and Mudflap
    - Jetfire with a dino skull
    - Jetfire with a lance/staff (that’s actually cool, felt the axe was too thin)

    you know, jetfire looks really a lot like an Evangelion unit , particulary in this pic.

    compare with Evangelion unit 01 (do a google search, i can't find a good image)

    No way, Megatron's concept head turned out to be Starscream's final head?

    The Fallen turning into the Nemesis (or at least homaging it) would've been cool.

    All the battle/normal heads remind me of the old Beast Wars mutant masks, but this one is especially Waspinator-ish. Surprised Hasbro didn't revive the gimmick for the Movie line.

    Odd how Prime also toyed with the idea of a centauroid Soundwave.
    And :lol  to the whole fan reaction thing

    This is just weird.

    those designs for the fallen are ridiculously badass and much better than the finished design, imo.

    Looking at all these concepts now kinda makes you realize that the designers were onto some bizarre shit. I like it.

    Wow I've never noticed. i could see what they were trying to do. Looks like they tried to give him his classic bucket head look, but they just gave the head to Starscream for some reason.

    Looking at Starscreams head on Megs body, I noticed how much Starscream has a shape similar to G1 megs, looking somewhat Buckethead-esque.

    EDIT: Damn, Just noticed this Jetfire concept. Pretty awesome looking.

    For some strange reason I find Megatron with Starscream's head to be pretty cool looking

    So, the movie didn't just do name-slapping but head-slapping as well?

    Megatron and Starscream are slap-heads. :p

    I'm pretty content with most of the designs from the first film, in fact it holds my favourite design of Megatron (ROTF CONCEPT ART PNG Images :: dc_cat_con_art_meg_14.png picture by BluRayHiDef - Photobucket). I'm glad his original head was given to Starscream, it just seemed too avian and sneaky to really fit him. Megatron with the crown and fangs, just seemed fittingly badass and cool to me.

    As for Bumblebee, I think if they'd gone fully insectoid on him (ROTF CONCEPT ART PNG Images :: ab_cat_concept_bumble14.png picture by BluRayHiDef - Photobucket) he'd be mistaken for a Decepticon. I'm okay with his final design, except for the mouth (it looks like a electronic larynx or something - of course that was probably deliberate).

    Most of the Transformer desgns were pretty creative and exotic, but I agree with the miscreant above that we got off pretty lightly, that realism and budget more or less kept things in check (sci-fi fantasy is great as long as kept within the bounds of logic).
