    I don't like that rendition of Cybertron. It looks to clean and perfect. However if they were to ever use vector sigma in the live action movie verse, I think that would be a good model/look for it.

    Not sure why they didn't even TRY to draw a parallel with the War For Cybertron / TF Prime look.

    And the fact that Cybertron's look had no continuity from movie to movie also bugged me. The whole honeycomb-hexagonal framework around the planet was just weird and "off".


    But then again, in ROTF Jetfire was an old Scottish guy and definitely not red & white. Amongst a million other things that were "off" about the movies. So..... anything goes?

    That's not Cybertron, that's a robot bee hive.

    Bay-ism redesign = LAME!

    doesn't really catch the eye from "orbit" but the "on the ground" look we got at the start of DOTM made it look pretty cool.

    I never bought into the concept of Cybertron as a series of geodesic shapes interlocked and stacked on one another, especially when you consider many parts of the planet would have been built up over time by separate factions, destroyed in various wars, and would have served a myriad of purposes- you know like most cities. No, I'm gonna go old school and say that the Cybertron we see in the opening sequences of the G1 toon is pretty damn close to perfect. The geodesic look may be more clean, 'computery', and movie-like, but it looks nothing like the version of Cybertron I feel approaches true reality.

    Now this kind of redo makes more sense. If you consider that Jetfire and Starscream were once ally scientists working together it stands to reason that hey may have gone Decepticon when his buddy did and may have spent time in that faction. Also, Jetfire spends the first 15 min of his G1 reveal episode unwittingly fighting against the Autobots, so further evidence of possible faction swapping. I won't touch very much on the Scottish thing as I'm not sure where that came from other than contrast for its own sake, but the faction swapping and change of character model actual made quite a bit of sense to me.

    Put a bunch of 8 yr. old kids together with some crayons and you'd get a more innovative designs.

    It blows!

    That doesn't look that good, it doesn't even look like a planet, IMO.

    I think it could work, if it was only a bit more damaged. As someone said, through hundreds of years of wars those comb-like surface structures wouldn't all be intact.

    I never minded movieverse Cybertron, if only because towers that are visible from orbit never made much sense to me.

    The whole honeycomb layout meanwhile was pretty cool, and reminds me somewhat of my own stuff where I have a grid layout carved out onto a planet surface.

    I agree with the idea that maybe this is too perfect and I also find it hard to belive cities could be contained within. Maybe if transformers were some sort of hive mind I could belive they would make such a perfect structure over the years but given the "human" nature of transformers I dont see this being possible. UNLESS the whole ROTF Primes thing results in every planet they visit looking like this

    I like the design, and it's nice to see what a pristine movieverse Cybertron looks like, but I agree that it would look better if it was damaged; the honeycomb structures broken and collapsing, massive holes in the surface, dark spots, craters, etc., like in DotM.

    Is the whole honeycomb thing supposed to be a force field of sorts?

    Meh.

    WFC/FOC has the ideal Cybertron IMO.

    No, it's simply the outer structure of the planet. Sort of like architecture in the "upper atmosphere" as compared to the "ground" of the planet. Think skyscrapers with walkways when compared to the city streets.
