Never saw this before. Man, I really want one now!
What in the world is this? Transtech?
It's fanart of something, I'm thinking something I heard of years back called "Transmythicals". Maybe one of the fan art regulars will know something.
I found the pic here
The Underbase Online
wow these pics bring back memories, they were on display at Botcon 98 and yes thay are fan-art
That Tigatron looks surprisingly alot like Animated Lockdown, namely the car mode and the wheel-hips. Don't know how a Tiger mode could be worked into Animated Lockdown's frame, though...
Are there hi-res pics anywhere? Those are awesome!
Who ever did this should sell the designs to a 3rd party company and get these produced. Griffon Prime needs to be brought to life!
Reading the entry on the blog claims that they are unused designs for Beast Wars:
Not many unproduced "Beast Wars" prototypes have turned up, but there was an interesting set of concept drawings that surfaced. Among these are Transmetal versions of characters that did not get Transmetal (I) figures...Scorponok, Tigatron and Blackarachnia. There are also a couple of unproduced Fuzor characters, one of which looks like Optimus Primal as a griffin! These look like they would have been great additions to the Beast Wars."
I'm not sure if Beast Wars: Future is what you're referring to, but that project is currently ongoing: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/creat...3-beast-wars-future-project-thread-mk-ii.html
The website these photos originally came from, stated it was actual fanart, entered in the art contest. They are not unused concept art from Hasbro or Takara.
Does anybody have better pics of the art?
Nope. I remember when these photos first went up, and looked every where for better shots. This was all I could find, in the years since.
Boo!!!!! I think i'm gonna have to go buy a 10th anniversary Primal and give it a bird head and wings.
I'm digging the Tigatron. Kind of wish that was going to be an actual toy.
Looks like Blackarachnia got herself a couple of "upgrades", there.
This is a prime reason (pun intended) why they should bring Beastformers back to a certain degree. Those designs are simply magnificent.
Um.... Is Blackarachnia not wearing any under wear?
Of course she's not, Transformers don't wear underwear!
Lol thats a bit perverted, dontcha think?
Ok. Where did you see that on the site though?
looks very nice though. Fansproject should make that tiger and that griffin.
