    This is what we should've gotten in ROTF. This what we wanted, right? I've heard a lot of complaints about the final battle in ROTF on this board.

    That's pretty much what we got, minus one naked harvester.

    Even something like that without the steel construction towers, but that close to the pyramids would have been nice. I didn't like that the action seemed to be taking place in an entirely difference place than the pyramids, and all over the place, frankly. But I guess it's just one more way ROTF could have been improved. I mean, you got pretty much all the individual elements in that picture, but they just never, I don't know, came together I guess?


    Hell, that pic would have made a great background for packaging or promotional dioramas.

    Yeah, maybe that's right. Everything felt too stretched out, and there was a lack of action. Devastator forms, does barely anything, we see Decepticons shooting, Autobots shooting, but never really engaging each other, then Sam and Mikaela for awhile, then the Decepticons are getting blown up by humans. Then, there is the anticlimax battle with the Fallen that lasts less than a minute.

    It was a very dull final battle.

    In some ways it's exactly what we got (soldiers shooting at Decepticons, jets flying through the air, explosions, Megatron, etc.), and in other ways, not so much (this seems much "closer" and more intense).

    Concept art such as this is basically meant to sum up an entire sequence (more or less) in a single image, sometimes based on a single phrase as simple as "Draw me an action scene from the final battle. They're by the pyramids, draw some soldiers shooting, 'Cons stomping around and gets flying in the air. And explosions." It's not meant to be as specific as the pre-viz that would map out the entire sequence, simply setting the stage for what the scene would encompass visually. And this piece of art basically did sum up the sequence that we got. Very rarely do lengthy epic sequences such as what's being depicted here turn out 100% like the concept art. Nor should that be expected. Any concept art from movies such as these will vary from the final product and vice versa.

    This concept art has no Autobots, though. :sly:

    So it's just like the movie! :p  ZING!

    I kid, I kid. As I said, some things are different. There's always concept art that depicts things differently from the movie; whether it's slight differences, omissions, additions or completely altering an entire sequence. That's the business of pre-production. Perhaps one of the criteria for the above piece of art was "Okay, don't put any Autobots in this pic. 'Cause the Autobots will be off to the side in this sequence shooting at Devastator." or "At this point in the scene, Optimus is still dead, Ironhide and Arcee are off looking for Sam and Ratchet and Sideswipe are getting pummelled by the protoforms off to the side." Or something.

    We got about an hour of this, and I thought it was one of the coolest hours in the entire trilogy. Boom bang dakka dakka.

    We did get all those scenes, they just weren't in the same location like in this.

    Look at the picture while holding your monitor and shaking it vigorously, it'll start to look more like what we got. :p
