Does anyone know where I can find a gallery of character designs from War Within?
I don't know about online, but in the back of the "War Within: Dark Ages" comic there are many of the designs featured, both robot and alt modes. These include the Dinobots (minus Grimlock), Mirage, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Trypticon, Hotspot, Jetfire, Perceptor, Springer, Tracks, Ratbat, Cliifjumper, Gears and Huffer.
I'll see if I can track down a copy at my local comic shop. Thanks.
There's a bunch of designs spread throughout the Vol. 1 TPB, too. But that one will probably be harder to track down, at least until it gets reprinted by IDW. Which I don't think it has, yet...
The really cool sketch is of Cybertron in bot mode. That is pretty clearly where the concept for Cybertron/Galaxy Force 'Primus' came from. Can't recall hich volume it's printed in, though.
That's in the back of vol.1
Here are some courtesy of www.tfmaster.com.
And Iaconcity has awesome renders of Don's designs found here:
I forgot about those. Just flicking through I found Grimlock, Jazz, Prowl, Bluestreak, the Constructicons, unused Shockwave and Soundwave designs, Kup, a generic Seeker design, Optimus Prime, Ironhide, Bumblebee, Hound, Trailbreaker, and Primus, but no Megatron?! A fully coloured version of the same image of Primus is also in the Ultimate Guide.
Those TF'ing WWI movies are da shit.
I love Don's work, it never ceases to wow me.
Though does it ever explain why Shockwave had a different form in WW? I mean...he crash landed on earth in the G1 comic, and he was on Cybertron in the cartoon, so why the design change?
Design change? SHOCKWAVE is the one character whose design has never changed.
Those pics at Iaconcity look FANFREAKINTASTIC!!
Don originally redesigned Shockwave but it was decided to keep the original design since that was "cybertronian" anyways
also, you can find some decent shots of most the chars in here http://www.transformers-thewarwithin.co.uk/
i think you're thinkin' of smething else, like the GIJoe crossover or something ~~ tWWi Shockwave was just his regular ol' (super-awesome) self...
Sorry Boo, if we're counting all forms of G1 then his design changed for Hearts of Steel and the original Dreamwave GI Joe vs. Transformers.
Drivaaar has a war within site with pics and stuff on. its quite good but its never updated anymore. Yeah, the site Josh linked to.
i htink he jsut meant in tWWi ->> regular ol' G1
Everybody has wanted a Transformable WWI line and now we have it with the Titanium Series I would really like to have a larger series knowing that it can be done.
I never read the WW comics...but in that concept art Shockwave looked like his alt mode was a tank...not the flying laser pistol...thats what i was referring to.
shocky was drawn with his original form in the comic. that design was only a conceptual thing.
Well, I'm not talking about the side stories at all. Just main stream G1.
DON should release a MTMTE profile guide of all the WW designs....and their concepts if they had them....
