    Discuss. Seems pretty damn copied (though not any less awesome.)

    Yeah, I can see some resemblence.

    Not sayin' it's a copy, though. It's not dissimilar from the Movie aesthetic in general.

    Some similarities with the legs is about it. Yeah, they both have blades, but they look entirely different.

    Great. Now I'm pissed off because we're never going to get Transtech, ever. GAH

    But yeah there are some design similarities and they're both awesome.

    Did you really think we still had a chance of getting the Transtech line made?

    Transtech Cheetor.

    I see the resemblance, but then again the Transformers designs are bound to be similar in one way in another. Like Optimus Prime's head.

    Hmm I wasn't clear - my meaning was that seeing Transtech is a painful reminder of what could have been, what we missed out on. I weep for it every night.

    Transtech Cheetor, yes. But when I first saw The Fallen's sketch, I immediately thought of Beast Machines.

    Just for the wheel feet? Nah, it isn't a copy. Besides, the Movie designs have always had a resemblence to Transtech due to the intrincate, very detailed designs.

    I always thought that if Transtech had come to fruition, people wouldn't have been nearly as inflammatory towards the movie designs.

    Ebay:
