    Decided to try updating the Predacons from G1 to fit into Bay's messed up movieverse. I chose to do the Predacons since Bay, Orci, and Kurtzman will most likely never introduce beast-based Transformers into the movies, like the Dinobots, which Bay stated that he never liked.

    Here's some of the sketches that I did for a few of the Predacons' heads. Got lazy and just drew half of their faces and did the copy/flip trick.

    To make them fit into the movieverse, instead of being Transformers that turn from beasts into robots, I changed it so that the Predacons have vehicle alt modes, like most of the Cybertronains, meaning that their beast modes are their robot modes.

    Tantrum and Headstrong were removed from the Predacons because, let's face it, bulls and rhinos aren't predatory animals. Rampage was also removed because, well, Bay already used that name for a Constructicon in Revenge of the Fallen and it felt weird assigning a new name to the tiger Predacon.

    Ohhh I can see these going places. Loving the head designs, some of them are nice mixes of the namesake, plus original and movie ideas drawn in.

    I didn't really notice that I did that. I just kinda winged most of the head designs lol

    I've got the rough draft for most of the Predacons' individual bios done as well as the concept sketches for the remaining two Predacons' head designs. I'll post the two head designs sometime tomorrow.

    Quickstrike's data sheet is up. He was one of the tougher ones to design.

    Oh, I will :) 

    I plan to! Only a few more Preds to go before I can start working on Predaking's design.


    Speaking of which, Divebomb's now up.
