    seriously :lolol 

    I have never seen the transtech design from prime.

    I wonder if transtech was to convey a more realistic approach to transformers such as the movie it trying too.

    It was definitely meant to transition from Beast Machines back to vehicles, while retaining the atypical, "alien" look that BM had. Hasbro wanted to go for something different. Not sure why it was scrapped though. I like some of the designs, but Prime and Cheetor were silly IMO.

    It really could have begun a 4th generation thing.
    I seem to remember an article in toyfare about the BM and where they are going with the series after. But RID prevailed and then to Armada - More kid friendly approach maybe?

    On a side note, not sure how that Prime would turn out, looks a little strange.

    I think War Within Prime looks more inspired by the Transtech design than ILM's Movie Prime does. Particularly the alt mode.

    You can definitely see a resemblance in the hips, and the yello glowing "abs" in the lower torso. Also, look at the colour scheme in vehicle mode. A mixture of red and blue on the cab. Much like movie Prime with his read flames over blue.

    IMHO, the Transtech design looks like it's nice fusion of both Primal's beast aesthetics (e.g. big lower arms, monster-looking truck mode) with a nice fusion of previous Prime incarnations.

    The movie Prime seems less "armored up" compared to this design, but that doesn't mean I don't like it.:)
