    This looks very "War for Cybertron", but I posted this here instead of news and rumors, and War for Cyberton, because I have no clue who it is. Can someone tell me? I just found it on 4chan.

    If I were to guess, I'd say Jetfire.

    Despite being unusually GIGANTIC, I'd say clearly Jetfire. The gun-arm is the only thing that recalls Omega, but most Bayformers have gun arms, so that hardly counts.

    I'd throw my hat into the ring marked Omega Supreme. I'd say Jetfire is unlikely, despite the colour scheme, as there are no obvious wing appendages or anything. Whoever it is, that's one damn cool looking picture!

    I'd disagree actually, the sealed in air pump helmet is very much Omega Supreme and something Jetfire really has never had anything close to. I have a lot of difficulty trying to see Jetfire in it.

    You know, the at the one MenasorMaster posted? I couldn't even begin to guess at the alt-mode. I see stairs, metal grating...I have absolutely no idea what I'm looking at.

    I also think the initial ons looks more like Omega Supreme, what with the helmet and size, although I can see how SMOG finds it Jetfire-ish, I thought that for a moment before I thought more about the lack of wings and all.

    Helmet says Omega Supreme to me, but I can see where people are getting Jetfire, due to his unusally sleek design.

    Well... I did have curry last night.

    RE: WINGS... take a look at G1 Jetfire... THE TOY. Where are the wings? ;) 

    Not really true. Also looking at this from the point of view of the original Valkyrie/Jetfire design, the head also makes more sense. It has a similar narrow visor. While it's true that Omega had those little hoses on either side of his head, in this case, the "mask" of this design seems to very clearly echo a fighter pilot's air mask, so again (thematically) I see Jetfire.

    Also, despite all the segmentation and bulking, the chest and legs also have subtle but strong echoes of the original Jetfire's chest plate and leg motifs. The colours help, but it seems pretty obvious to me. I think people are getting snowballed by the size and the gun arm.

    Of course, since it's a Bayformer concept image, who really cares? This could be TF3 Erector for all we know! Not that we could tell from visual design cues used in those movies. :D

    Impressive work!

    I'd lean towards Jetfire, just because of the color scheme - but it seems awfully large.

    Why does this need to be specific character anyway? All of his work is original, so it seems logical to think the character is as well.
