    I don't know about what you guys think, but I feel Josh's LongHaul design is awesome....It is the only bot that has a strong G1 vibe but remains consistant with the Bayverse feel.

    I can look at that bot and immediatley know what I am looking at...no spikey shards of metal, a completely discernable head and face, legs and arms that have substance and are solid...

    I just think it is a solid design, very nice work...I kinda wish Mr Nizzi would have been the lead bot designer....This is a much more coherent style that fits within Bays parameters...

    :thumbs2:  to Josh....!!!!

    Im not slamming the other designs...LongHauls just seems to be the most coherent.....Of the Con's anyway......

    Long Haul is easily my favorite of the movie Constructicon designs though I think they all look good onscreen.

    The Deluxe & Voyager Class toys look mostly crap ( apart from Mixmaster ) and I think they are a victim of the movie design aesthetic which makes really accurate toy representations difficult to say the least.

    Long Haul however has a more traditional look and if his FAB is anything to go buy a Voyager Class version could turn out to be the best of the individual Constructicons.

    Ya kinda did, several times.

    It's cool that Josh's design got into the movie, and that it fits with the other Constructicons, but I'm not a fan of the almost boring look to it. Every other bot has a cool aspect, like Mixmaster's big sheilded arms, Rampage's whips or Demolishor's big wheels. Longhaul doesn't really have this at all.

    I like the ornamental designs like Megatron, though I'm not sure if you meant him or someone else. The curved, segmented lines and flow of parts gives the feel that he was once royalty, but also makes him look more brutal.

    I don't dislike the other designs...I just like The aesthetic of LongHaul more...but hey, that's just my opinion. No reason Megs couldn't have the regal look another way, in addition, no reason Mixmaster couldn't have the shields as well, yet still have a different aesthetic too...

    Trust me I am by no means a hater....I love this shit...

    AWESOME, KICKASS design, Josh.

    Just look at this thing of beauty. Distinguishable face, two hands, two feet. What do you know? Such a thing is possible in a real live action movie! :p 

    I do like most of the movie designs, but the more distinguishable the better.

    HUGE kudos Josh! Thanks for contibuting your vision to this movie!! May we see much more of it in TF3!

    All new movie designs are alot more solid, no doubt due to Josh's influence on the team.
