    Well, Dreamworks people? Where is it?

    After TF1, we got stacks of concept art - galleries of the stuff, showing the progression of the character designs from initial sketches through to CGI models.

    Now that TF2 is out, where are Ben Proctor or Josh Nizzi with some art to show us the bot names/designs in their early stages? Sure we have the odd game art for The Fallen, Scrapper, Long Haul, etc... but there must be a treasure trove of stuff out there, and it might solve a lot of questions - for instance, like exactly how many protoform models were created and used!

    Does anyone know how to get in touch with the ROTF robot concept artists and get some content? I don't want to have to wait for a sub-par art book (if it ever comes out).

    Note: please don't just post already-seen game art in this thread.

    Yeah, and I want to see if vehicles like Hightower even had robot modes to begin with.

    I got in contact with Josh and he said he isn't able to release any concept art yet because Paramount hasn't approved but when they do, he will post it on his web site... pisses me off to be honest. the movie is out, whats the big deal with releasing some concept art... guess we just have to wait...

    I would gladly pay to get some concept art.

    Whether its an image gallery on a dvd, or some downloadable content on official websites, I would be willing to fork out some cash.

    Paramount's probably holding off for the dry season which their predicting is coming up shortly after the film is finished at cinema's and possibly Imax. I assume its around then we'll get our concept art, to keep generating interest in the franchise till the Dvd's are released.

    Thanks decepticron09... I'm talking to Ben Procter and Josh Nizzi but both can't release anything because they don't have approval from paramount so now I am speaking with Brian Palagosa from paramount to see if we can get anything... I should have an answer by the weeks end.

    Awesome!

    If we can get concept art, I'm also interested in getting the word from a Dreamworks or ILM designer on how many individual protoforms they made, and if they gave any of them "working names" like Wheelbot, Reedman, etc. Might help us get canon names eventually, and a canon record of how many Decepticons were actually in the final fight...

    Graham, the British soldier, says "there's thirteen of them" but there clearly wasn't, at least not if you include the multiple versions of the Constructicons.

    I want the CGI render of Devastator and Soundwave. The former exists, there was one at BotCon.
