Fan favorite artist Guido Guidi has shared with us some of his concept art for the Transformers Ongoing comic on his Deviantart page.

First off is a sketch study for Optimus Prime based off of the redesign of the character from Don Figueroa.

The 2nd is concept art for the Seekers. The art features Starscream and Skywarp who never appeared with this design in the comic issues #9-12

Check the links and pictures after the jump!

I couldn't agree more. These would be the only Seeker figures I'd ever need

Those seekers are nice but the bottom half screams Gundam.

Loving that seeker design, reminds me alot of the Sukhoi PAK-FA.

The only "Gundam"-ish part about it is that they've got sleeker, more anime-esque angles to them. They're still very Seeker-ish in shape, otherwise.

But yes, want toys. Soooo badly. Probably won't happen, but... *droooool*...

Those seekers look awesome.

I concur. The Classics mold is showing its age, and it's not like Hasbro and Takara haven't got plenty of use out of it.
IronicHide
Absolutely beautiful. Favourite GG stuff is still Insecticons / Shockwave from HoS or any picture he does of Hound.
G1Prowl
Two problems with toys of these:

One, I don't think a toy will translate that design easily without losing some elements, and disappointing the fans.

Two, after the whole Seeker debacle in Classics, all we really need is another mold to whip everyone into a frenzy.

I hope the new mp seekers look like this....

Maybe we could sweet-talk Hasbro into making those for the next round of Generations...
Saberfrost01
I'm loving that seeker concept, The legs seem look toi me like they are based off the Animated Starsream's Legs.

I will always be astonished and impressed at just how good Guido is. One of my most treasured possessions is a bit of Beast Wars artwork I got from him on eBay some years back. Even got mailed to me directly from Guido himself.

I would definitely buy a toy of that design. The Classics Seeker mold was great for its time, but now it's become old, outdated, and horribly underwhelming compared to modern toy engineering.

Plus, I really want a good, G1-style Thundercracker...

Anything is possible! Classics Sunstreaker and Prowl first had their designs shown in the old Dreamwave series, right? When Generations continues hasbro may be nice and decide to release the Seekers with Guidi's design. I've got the first Classics seeker mold in seven incarnations. I would love to have a reason to buy more (new) Seekers.

No.

Well, maybe Prowl-ish, by nature of simply updating his G1 self into a modern car form. DW Sunstreaker still had the hood feet, IIRC, so definitely not.

I do NOT like those seeker designs. Just like contemporary anime mech designs, a mix of old and new, gone horribly wrong.

Aside from the fragmented face, I like this seeker redesign lot better : http://cdn.tfw2005.com/transformers-...1289231938.jpg

That Prime design looks great though.
Ra88
The Seeker designs look good, but if they get toys I'd like to see some changes. Mostly bigger torso and arms so that they are not almost all legs.
Smasher
I'd like to see more detail of that Optimus.
I agree on the jets though -they look great.

Yes.
Solrac333
Make the next TF cartoon look like that.
Chaosbringer

DJW107PRIME
those are awesome.
moreprimeland
Jawdroppingly amazing!! Lovin' Optimus Prime!!! and the seekers aren't too shabby either. Would love to see these versions on my shelves.
Enigma2K2
... I'm gonna go fap to these... that's awesome.
Rob
Hasbro please make voyagers of the seekers and ultras of prime please!!!!!!! Maybe a black jet Megatron to go along with the prime
NCStarscream
I adore that Starscream design.
optimus124
Loving the cencepts. Not sure if they'd translate into toy form that well, but its definitely worth HasTak looking into
Stormcrow
Seekers look sick.
snoopcow
the seekers should get voyagers based on this design.
raptordriver
If these could translate into actual figures that looked like this I would buy them in a heartbeat. They look badass like this. But...remember Sonicron. His concept art was awesome and the actual figure looks terrible.

That was due to the toy compensating for the G1 cassettes while staying in Classics scale.

I'm pretty sure you didn't mean it this way, but he didn't have anything to do with sonicron (other than original art). The execution was entirely the manufacturer(can't remember who made it).

As for people thinking you couldn't make a toy out of those designs, didn't we say the same thing about the movie line, animated, and prime? i think overall those lines made the transition to toys pretty well. it's all about who's behind it, and hasbro has takara's engineers who have been doing this for a long time.
In short, Third party? maybe. Hasbro? chances are high (if they did it).

Randy!

I love these designs. I wish comic designs were made into toys!
