While I love Animated I couldn't help but drool over the concept art for what was the foundation for Animated - the rumored "Transformers Hero". It's clear that the characters that we enjoyed in Animated was possible thanks to Derrick J. Wyatt's unique character design aesthetic. However I noticed the similarities in the Hero designs for Blitzwing, Lugnut, Lockdown and Starscream to their Animated counterparts but also Optimus Prime who looks very human, Jetfire and Prowl - no doubt the product of Eric and Derrick's work. What I wanted to ask is what are your thoughts on the Hero aesthetic and their designs in general - not if you prefer it over Animated's. Afterall we may see some of their designs recycled in the future like how Transtech's were in AEC. From what I read in the Allspark Almanac, the designs seemed much more streamlined than those we got in AEC - especially in what you get to see of Optimus. Soundwave and Megatron definitely gave me the Transtech vibe but toned down to a degree which I think would've flown a bit more with the general crowd after seeing the first Bay movie.
