    I noticed a couple of small things from the leaked concept art:

    I also noticed that the legs are different, more massive, but that might just be the ice.

    It's probably coincidence, but I hope I'm right.

    just to be fair, that pic there is obviously digital

    no doubt and for all we know its been printed out and initialed by the both of them already


    as for differences in the concept and the dismembered prop, for one the concept is obviously going to be more detailed than any life sized prop [i mean. its a big prop. they're not gonna go all out on that, especially when they'll probably just overlay the digital chars over it or whatever], and 2, its covered in ice/icicles. things probably come off a bit different/distorted

    Well, I assume that this concept art was leaked by one of the ILM crew members. However, if it's the final design that was sent to the CGI department, then it would be checked to avoid confusion if another Megatron concept ended up there.

    One of the producers came out and said the board we've seen is a very early concept and there's good reason for his look to be so different from his G1 persona. But if you're looking for hope, he did mention some things about Megatron, including "throughout time, he has had a very big gun." You'll notice in this design he has no gun.

    The title of this thread sounds like a movie in itself.

    I love how everyone is so quick to point out the "unchecked" box, like it means anything. Others with more inside info than I have said this IS the final design.

    Oh Snap!



    Anyhoo, I figure if these aren't the final designs. Maybe they're still tweaking it a bit, ya know so there aren't so many panties in a bunch. Its possible they could have done a full head/body change perhaps, something more that people can recognize, or it might just be small minute changes. Won't know for sure until July or if Megs gets shown at all in a trailer.

    No, you really didn't. They have been saying stuff and using double-speak just to get us to shut up lately, but I guess we really won't know for sure until later. That, and they already handed out the design portfolios or whatever they are called to different companies working on the merchandise, but I suppose they could update them if they had to. Who knows exactly WHICH designs the producers consider not final and final? The toy protos have been made already, which is a good sign that those won't change. Not a definite sign, but a good one.

    I HOPE they change Megs and Starscream, but I don't think they will. Besides, they already built the Megs in ice, so his arms and legs at least probably won't change.

    hehe

    to quote Don Murphy in a recent interview

    "...people have seen stolen snapshots, early concept art, early prototypes stolen from hasbros vault or whatever, but until you actually see the transformers in a full 3D environment, until you see it walk, until you see what we're trying to bring it to you, then hold your opinion...im convinced that what you see what ILM is doing a lot of fans concerns will be put to rest"


    and ya know dude, honestly id trust these guys, the producers, the people actually working on a movie than some fan who thinks he knows how things work

    Notice how he didn't say anything changed. At all. All he said was hold your judgement until you see them move. Not sure why you would use that quote, since it doesn't prove your point. In fact, it helps mine - he skirts the issue entirely.

    I do know how one thing works - spin. When something comes out that riles up the public, the first thing you do is talk it down and put a spin on it.

    I have no proof these are final - you have no proof they aren't.

    That unchecked box provides hope, but it doesn't prove that that Megs isn't the final version. Those arms look exactly like the art to me, just encased in ice and at a slightly different angle. The "thumb" is in the front, the "fingers" are behind it, you can see them. You can even see his "thumbnail", just like in the art. The icecicles bulk the arm up and add pointy parts, while obscuring others.

    Unless they ditch or alter that Megs prop, I call final - on his arm at least. I can't find the whole pic, but I'd bet the legs are the same too.

    A few things may change, but basically, unless they deliberately leaked incorrect pictures, that IS how Megatron is going to look.




    Right now, I think Cruise is planning a cruise.
