    That rhino is awesome! I've never seen a TF quite like that before, the art makes it look almost steampunk in style.
    The dinos almost look like early concepts for Snarl. The head and build is fairly similar.

    Nice. Really dig the Rhino and the steampunk style is a nice take on Transformers... to bad we can't have a mini-comic series done in that style.

    Also, interesting concept for Sunstreaker there. I assume that's what eventually evolved into Universe Sunstreaker... he looks a little too movie inspired in that concept art though.

    Cool stuff. Always fun to see early concept work, especially when you can connect it to a finished product. I'm probably most interested in the apparent Animated Dinobot concepts, which look like Snarl (Stegosaurus G1 Snarl basis) and a spiked variation - possibly an ankylosaur or similar.

    Also noticed the femme-bot in the background, obscured by the other drawings - probably an early Animated Blackarachnia concept.

    That's what I was thinking. That would be awesome. Great character + great design = awesomeness.

    Yeah, I though it was interesting that wasn't mentioned in the post.
    Though it looks to me from what little we see of her, that it's more likely Arcee or Elita before becoming BA.

    Hmmm. I guess there may be hope for a proper (albeit offscreen) version of Animated Snarl in the future.

    Rhinobot is not bad. Streaker' looks like a mash between Alt. Windcharger and a dash of the movie aesthetic.

    I think that animated dinobot is just Snarl before they Slagified him.

    I love these. Sunstreaker and Animated G1 Snarl are awesome.

    Those Chibi Prime and Megatron were on the back of the 2005 BotCon-Exclusive version of Infiltration #0. Which, now that I'm looking at it, also has a Universe Sideswipe in the same style and what looks like an early Animated Prime in truck mode, too.

    Sunstreaker looks more like an Alternity Concept, and nothing like the early Universe/Classics concept art... I wonder...

    This is Hasbro's sketchbook though and just said at TFcon that Alterntity was a surprise to them as it was Takara acting on their own or something to that effect.

    Rhinobot is pretty cool, would make a great figure.
