    as part of USA Today's "Design a Transformer" contest, Nizzi entered Longbow, an Apache Attack Helicopter. About his entry, he says "when in robot mode the jets in his feet allow him to maintain flight. The tail rotor expands and becomes a saw on his right arm. On his left arm is the machine gun from the underbelly. Missiles fire from his shoulders."

    Looks pretty damn good. Not quite as badass as Long Haul, but still something I would want to see on the big screen.

    isn't the fact that Nizzi HAS designed Transformers kinda giving him an unfair advantage?

    Hell, why wasn't I aware of this contest? I would so have submitted one of my designs.

    Anyway, I think we've just seen our first design for Transformers 3, BEFORE ROTF even premieres!

    I think it would be cool, but I am pretty certain they wouldn't be able to secure the rights to the name Longbow, heh.

    That is the first name that springs (pun intended) to mine too. Either that or Whirl.


    I really like the look of this guy and how the tail is actually something useful and not intrusive.
