    Would you guys mind helping me put together a list of all the artist and designers who worked on the films, thus far as best as possible? If it hasn't been done, before of course.

    These wonderful people deserve more attention for bringing our childhood memories to life on the full screen.

    I'll try and start some kind of format, with links to some notable work related to the films from them, aswell as which films they have been confirmed to work on.


    Ben Proctor [Web] [Transformers]
    Josh Nizzi [Web] [Revenge of the Fallen, Dark of the Moon, Age of Extinction] - Long Haul, Megatron (ROTF), Jetfire, Soundwave, Shockwave, various
    Wesley Burt [FB/Tumblr/Web] - [Dark of the Moon, Age of Extinction] - Dinobots, Crosshairs, various
    Steve Jung [FB][Web]
    Steve Messing [FB/Web]
    Ed Natividad [Web]
    Warren Manser [Web]
    Massive Black [Web] [Dark of the Moon]
    Vitaly Bulgarov [Web] [Age of Extinction] Lockdown
    Ryan Church [Web] [Transformers, Revenge of the Fallen, Dark of the Moon]
    Feng Zhu [Web] [Transformers] Starscream
    Paul Ozzimo [Web] [Transformers, Revenge of the Fallen, Dark of the Moon, Age of Extinction] Jetfire
    Fausto De Martini [Web]
    Patrick Faulwetter [Web]

    Josh Nizzi is awesome man! He worked on Sideswipe's head too. Paul Ozzimo is in working since TF1 (I remember that he worked on the scenes of Arrival). And you forget Ryan Church, he create some mystic scenes from ROTF and DOTM.

    Ryan Church (ryanchurch.com) is the concept artist from TF1-3, but not in crew of TF4.

    Here is the lastest TF4 image from his web site :D

    Is that a Parasaurolophus dinobot? If he made it to the movie, he would've been my favorite.

    And Bulgarov is the main guy behind Lockdown.

    Man... I'd so buy a poster if it were available.

    Also... man I wish the Dinobots weren't so shortlived in the film.

    I always thought it was Alex Jaeger.
    Alex Jaeger should be first on your list, this isn't official but my theory is that he designed Bonecrusher and Brawl/Devastator.

    If you can confirm that for me that would be helpful. I would like to put things like that next to their names.

    Just a heads up, Vitaly told me that he's going to put Lockdown concept art (and some others that didn't make it to the movie) to his website this week or the next. Keep your eyes open.

    Thanks Goblin!

    Seems to be alot of the artist showing galleries for the film soon. Maybe there's a time frame before they are allowed to.

    Unfortunately I can't, it's only my speculation. I also wonder if he's continued to work with Bay since 2007.
