    A daring darer dared to post this render of a robot (allegedly, the robot mode of the Ark) on TFLAMB...DISCUSS1

    here's a link to the TFLAMB article:
    http://transformerslive.blogspot.com/2011/01/ark-is-omega-supreme.html#comments

    Some of my own input:
    There are definitely some design queues taken from the ship we saw in the trailer: the spindly long spires and all, the thrusters
    The somewhat grainy, c/p'd quality of this pic reminds me of those leaked concept arts of ravage and megatron we got early before rotf. It looks like this was scanned/cell phone cammed, then cleaned up (notice the square jpeg pixelation of the white, surrounding the robot), then ran through an image sharpener (hence the dot-dot-dot appearance of what should be solid long thin lines)
    I do question its validity for a few reasons. The design aesthetics dont totally scream bayverse to me. Some parts, particularly the legs, seem far too basic in geometric structure, especially when compared to the designs of other cybertronian designs, like megatron or the fallen or even soundwave.
    The head, while evoking the simplistic design of the g1 character, seems to simple here. if anything, bayverse designs over complicate features such as the head.

    I suppose only time (and a request to take down the pic from Hasbro/Paramount) will tell

    Looks cool, however for the time being, I'm going to take it with a grain of salt. Something just seems...off about it for the movie-verse. Would be cool if it turns out to be real, just not going to get all excited about it till it's confirmed in some way.

    If that was/is Omega, I'd be presently surprized. But after the clusterfuck that was Devs in ROTF, I'm not really excited to see gigantic TFs in the movieverse.

    Hadn't noticed that. Looking at it closer, those are definitely Bee's legs, and I'm pretty sure that hand is his too. Definitely fake.

    Would be really cool if they took the idea from animated, and made the ark (or some other ship) into Omega.

    For now I am calling it a fan made. I don't give the writers/bay enough credit to make something so awesome happen.

    i knew something was off bout dem legs >.<
    looks a lot like bee's legs...a lot...the thigh panels...the knee protector...the foot.

    While I agree it looks totally like bee's leg, i hope it's just a coincidence, cuz i'd love to see this guy on the screen.

    I remember way back during the reign of rotf, there was lot of speculation that sideways was barricade due to similarities in design (front of car=chest, wheels on arms, window wings). a picture of mudflap even, to me, looked like a really distorted bumblebee (window wings, panels on arms, front of car chest).

    What i'm saying is i hope the similarity is a coincidence, rather than an indication of falsehood

    I'm saying it's fake/fanart. Especially because of the head. Definitely not something the artists for the movie are likely to have created.
