    I didn't want to post this in the cluttered news forum, so I posted it here.

    They are promotional Transformers Movie artwork done for Hasbro back in 2006.

    I find it very interesting how these designs are "almost" close to looking just like their finalized movie versions. Most of their heads and a few other details here and there are different from the final approved designs. It really gives you an idea of how the design process of these guys went over time.

    [!]-If they have been seen before then just close the thread asap.

    I think that Jazz picture may have actually been the first picture of him we ever saw.

    It wasn't that exact image, but one very very similar to it.

    Brawl was Barricade's pre-production name.

    I've only ever seen the Jazz one (there's actually three or so different poses for Jazz, Google is your friend), never seen the other ones. Cool!

    Wow, thank God Optimus ditched the stars.

    Scorponok looks pretty badass, though.

    All of these are very cool, and it's nice to see the movie designs translated into a cartoonish style.
