    That look like shite.

    What do I want them to look like? A little more G1-y. Somewhere between G1 and BayFormers. A little less shardy and a little more blocky.

    What will actually happen? They'll look like BayFormers.

    I just hope the Decepticons designs aren't all claws and/or blades for hands/arms/feet/whatever.
    That was one of the things that annoyed me about the previous films.

    I think designs like Sentinel and the Wreakers hit the sweet spot.

    In fact Sentinel has one of my all time favorite Transformers designs.

    So yeah a little more like Sentinel, a lot less like movie 1 Megatron.

    I hope they look about the same as the first three movies. However, back when I first saw the designs before the first movie, I was pretty disappointed. I wanted a more G1 look. But then as time went on, the designs REALLY grew on me. Now I love them! So maybe the redesigns could be something I don't expect at all and I'll end up loving them, too...

    High Moon mixed with the DOTM designs and the ROTF Constructicons.

    That sounds about right

    I want some tweaked designs that are more significant than giving someone abs or a new spoiler. (Assuming the main cast is kept. Still not sure what's going on regarding plot, whether it's a true reboot, partial reboot, etc.)

    Somewhere in between the TFP style and the WFC designs.

    Or perhaps the best route is go for the style they have in IDW Ongoing where it's a cool fusion of movie and G1 which fits in the live action films perfectly.

    Something like Transformers Prime or War for Cybertron would be nice.

    Ideally something sleek but still complicated enough to have all the cool little parts like the live action Iron Man armor. Something that makes the robots look like armored fighting machines instead of skeletons. Enough G1 nods to know exactly who the characters are without being told but enough new elements to make the designs exciting.

    The two big things though are a coherent look and symmetrical. Really not a fan of when Megatron had the gimp hand and the robots really didn't look like they all belonged to the same species. Even on an alien planet with robotic lifeforms it seems like evolution should have some rules to it.

    When designing that beloved Sentinel Prime concept the artist used Gundam as a reference. So yeah, use Gundam as a reference while not making the changes that drastic from the first 3 movies.

    Keep the movie design proportions such as chicken legs ( that's a keeper yeah ), but surface armour detail alike TF Prime.

    I'd like a Prime style, but with a bit more movie details and G1/WFC blockiness.

    Combine movie-style and Prime-style. Maybe 70% Prime, 25% movie, 5% customization. The armor-over-skeleton look is fine, if they would do it more correctly. IMO Beast Wars had a nice idea. Have the joints of the robots look open so they have the high details (pistons moving, rotating gears, wires and stuff), but the rest of the bot look like the car becomes armor for it? *Shrugs* Just an idea to bend the two concepts together ;)
