Is anyone else disappointed about the lack of concept art?

    I expected to see some during production. I guess we have to wait until they appear on the artist's websites.

    I'm sure there'll be plenty of it on the DVD/Blu-ray but I can understand there not being any concept art about at the moment

    True.

    I wonder why Ben procter didn't upload stuff for ROTF on his site last year.

    Probably for the best that none was uploaded. All the names would be pre-production titles like
    "Traitorous Autobot Firetruck"
    .

    I have always enjoyed some good concept art.

    It would be nice to see what some of the early designs for Sentinel were.

    I've been bummed throughout the series that there haven't been concept art books released for each film. Marvel and Pixar have produced amazing concept art books for all of their films and the Clone Wars book of art was amazing even if you are just a fan of concept art. These designs are pretty fascinating and you KNOW they go through tons of versions going from the base character designs to what they're translated into for film. There must be TONS of art available. They should at least do a fat art of the trilogy book.

    It is a bit of a shame, but it has left some surprises open, which is even nicer. And I'll be surprised if we don't get an explosion of concept art over the span of July and August.

    He did upload stuff to his blog, at least.

    I'd imagine the reason so little has been posted is because Hasbro may be trying to keep it back for a potential "art of the movies" book for release around about the same time as the DVD / Blu Ray.

    I wonder if all the stuff that was leaked for the last two movies was to gauge fan reaction to the designs?

    I mean, they changed Megatron's face for the first movie due to fan reaction.

    Considering that TF:D OTM will do good, a concept art book for the 3 films would be nice.
    But I wonder what's the reason there has never been one..

    I'm disappointing in the fact that we haven't gotten high-res renders of some of the character like we got for ROTF. I want some wallpapers!
