    And they say 'G1 designs wouldn't work in live-action'.

    Sure they could've. The designers just dared to want to create something unique and be creative instead of slavishly going by the original design.

    Pretty much. The designers' creativity led to some seriously awesome concepts in general, but there are a couple I want to point out specifically:

    Sentinel Prime is easily the best normal, humanoid TF design I've seen out of the Bayverse. I think that future Optimuses could poach a lot from it.

    The more monstrous-looking Decepticons are great as well. I know a lot of people complain about them being all "grr, I'm evil," but I think they are just freaking cool, especially the Dreads, Brawl, Bonecrusher, Megatron's first and third appearances, the Constructicons, Devastator, and Shockwave.

    Before I clicked on the link, I was thinking of Dean McCoppin from The Iron Giant.

    Those robot builds are kind of nice, though.

    Cool! Also, that Hercules one's name is either a coincidence or this guy knows his third party!

    Yeah, I don't get that. Sure, they'd look a lot better if they added some details, but I think G1 or Classics styled bots in live action would have looked fine.
