    An Australian Fan (Optimus1 on the Ozformers board) posted up some photos of the Bumblebee promo statue that has visited Sydney, Australia this week (for the DVD release).

    Giant Bumblebee in Bondi today - Page 2 - Ozformers Transformers Collectors Australia

    Also on display is some Character Concept artwork, including the first I have seen of Ransack and Hightower as proposed inclusions (like Arcee and Wreckage in TF1).
    It also lists Hightower as 'Constructicon 10', suggesting more than the 7 vehicle/robot forms that we have toys for.

    And amusingly, the early name for Alice was 'Pretender - Hot Chick'.

    One of the few times I wished I lived in Sydney...

    That concept pic of Devastator at the bottom is slightly different from the ones we've been seeing...It looks like he's combined 'Scramble City' style, lol with Longhaul forming his head and neck and Rampage forming his right (left?) leg. Maybe the initial idea for the character was that he'd be able to swap vehicles as limbs?

    YES! Ransack and Hightower concepts, awesome!

    EDIT: And wow, that Devastator looks great, though I like the later head more. Awesome idea to use Long Haul as the head too, and very fitting. Makes me wonder what he would have looked like if they had stuck with the big dumptruck for Long Haul and let him form most of the torso too instead of Scavenger; green and yellow could have looked good together, though I like the red and yellow here as well. Love Scrapper as the leg too, he looks the same as Rampage, yet different enough to still be set apart.

    Interesting how Ben Procter kept using the same picture of Rachel Nichols.

    nice concept of hightower. i can see that they took the design for the legends class toy from this peace, rather than the one we saw a few weeks ago of the unused constructicons. Alice still looks creepy. not in a good way ether. that tongue just bugs me..

    Bumblebee looks like he wants to give someone a hug! XD

    Anyways, the concepts are awesome. Devastators "Scramble City" style with certain parts switched looks very cool.

    That statue has a lot of miles on it. You can see some dinks and scratches and something missing from the head. The object is on one side but not the other.
