    Here's a pair of galleries of concepts from the first Transformers Movie. I know we've seen a few of these before (like the aircraft carrier Decepticon in the second link) but there is some stuff that is new to me too. Enjoy folks!

    Works by James Clyne
    Works by Tim Flattery

    I have to agree.. this is top-notch stuff.

    People can complain about how they look, but they tend to forget this was CONCEPT artwork.. not stuff they were going to keep. If you take away that this stuff was from Transformers, and make is stand alone, it is insanely impressive work.

    Deffinately.

    Tim Flattery's are the best. The Cybertron concepts are amazing.

    Prime and BB's head concepts are... interesting...

    My parents taught me not to say anything if you don't have something good to say so... I'm not saying anything which could only mean one thing.

    I agree to the point that the conceptual nature of the scenes, staging, framing, and overall mood are superb. But the actual robot head designs are ghastly. I've grown to like the final Transformer heads and faces in the final movie (love the sliding plate style they used to show emotions, etc. - no "stretchy" metal makes sense in the real world), but these designs pretty much cover up the faces (or look like a turbo fox, heh) and don't do anything to give the eyes a way to emote.

    Anyway, good perspective on your part, so figured I'd chime in, too. :)
