    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.

    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...

    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:

    "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.

    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.

    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.
