    EDIT: PHOTOBUCKET PAGE IS FIXED NOW!!!

    This morning was the Transformers Design Decisions panel, hosted by Aaron Archer and Eric (couldn't really hear his last name). It was pretty interesting, with some neat ideas discussed involving Cybertron Prime, his trailer, and other characters. I've uploaded my pics from the panel to my photobucket account, which you can see here:

    highlights included:

    Cybertron Prime almost ended up as a crane
    design sketches for Classics Cosmos
    Original Character art for Vector Prime
    It was mentioned that the original prototype for Energon Prime would've made him cost $80!!!!!

    Classics Cosmos is a good sign. It might be an indication that the line is going to last more than two waves. :D 

    And I take it this means they're allowing pictures again this year? I hope so, it was really annoying to know that initial designs for Classics were seen, but anyone who didn't go to Botcon wouldn't be able to see them.

    What's up, SDF-1 on Giant Planet? How's it going?

    "Oh y'know...I'm all giant, so I thought I'd stop by."

    Awesome, SDF-1! Thanks for that!


    EDIT: Classics Cosmos - PLEASE, hasbro, PLEASE. VERY VERY COOL DESIGN. I like it a lot. Very neat.

    I guess it's safe to assume that Cosmos won't happen, or they wouldn't have shown him.

    Ok, the Cosmos is very cool!

    But what I really need to know is whats up with the SDF-1 in the pic. Were they going to try to bring in another macross toy into the TF mythos? Too cool..

    Oh man, I really wish they had done the Apocalypse Planet in Cybertron, that would have been sweet! It also is interesting to see how much RID Prime influenced the early designs of Cybertron Prime.

    :eek: 

    I'd buy all of those unused designs. As awesome as the Cybertron Prime we got is, some of those proposed ideas are off the scale.

    Oh yes please give us Cosmos. Awesome pics, thanks heaps for sharing. Very interesting to see those sketches and what could have been. I wish we got those extra planets, they looked and sounded sweet.
