Transformers Dark of the Moon Concept Art by Wesley Burt

With the release of Transformers Dark of the Moon, the literal dam of concept art has broken and washed down upon the Internet. We are drowning in concept art right now - and like you, we're loving every gasping breath of it!

We're pleased to bring you some concept art done by Wesley Burt (with thanks to Concept Art World), who worked alongside Michael Bay and Nigel Phelps to help create some of the really amazing things seen in the latest installment from Paramount. You'll see plenty of things you recognize (Igor!), some things that didn't make the cut (some cool Optimus Prime trailer battle-station modes), and some names for characters that obviously were changed ("Steeljaw"?).

What are you waiting for? Click the story title to check out all the images!

Oh wow, those Wheeljack concepts are pretty fun! Like how the hood of a convertible turns into a lab coat!

Not a fan of most trailer concepts, but the one where his entire truck+trailer turns into a giant Stealth Force tank is PURE win!

Optimus Prime: I'm in a chair, takin' your faces

The old art for driller looks like its face is made out of tires.
maewlaay


This is cool...!! why not in the movie ..huhh??
Mechafire
Man, some of those Optimus concepts are pretty awesome.
Bumblethumper
I think I like those 'Steeljaw' concepts better than how Q turned out in the film.

And Undermine is cool. He's like a decepticon that refuses to die, despite being decapitated. I thought the character looked like a bit of a mutated freak, but I imagine he was once a mighty warrior.

This must be why Optimus rips the faces apart.
Brave Magnus
The Wheeljack concepts are great! Just like Prime holding a BFG and his "Beast Wars Megatron" mode. XD that one would be sick to see on-screen.
thank you so much for posting these!
Shadow25
That full trailer Stealth Force for Prime is amazing, I would love to see that in a future video game or comic.
VaderPrime1
Aw, come on! Why couldn't we get this!?!?!?

Noideaforaname

Love this take on Wheeljack/Que/"Steeljaw."
muffinhunter
Why is it that nearly every piece of concept for what Prime's trailer might do is cooler than what it actually did in the movie?
Ace Convoy
I like the Hover cycle trailer art
citoria
Jesus...Wheeljack actually looks like 'Q'.

Who decided to change this?!?!

Also Prime's trailer is badass. Why is it that they can take just beautiful concept art and it turns into crap by the time the movie/toy rolls around.

Mercedes-Benz offered Bay money to put their cars in the film, and Michael Bay said "I like money".
Hiraga
Not a big fan of those Wheeljack heads, I'm perfectly happy with what they chose for the final film. But that whole 'lab-coat' thing is pretty cool.
Creaky
I think the Prime Flying Throne is HILLARIOUS.

I like a lot of those Laserbeak head designs more than the final one.

I just don't like how animal everything is. What's with Prime's tale?

Can't say I agree. They look too simple and have too little personality for the character.

i prefer what we got opposed to what was seen here, although i would prefer the steel jaw concepts over que.

This should have been his final design, but I can see why it might have been changed, since some of the face designs look a bit too much like Desmond Llewelyn and/or John Cleese. Q indeed.

Man, I hope Hasbro eventually does a toy based on those "Steeljaw" designs.

Holy tits Prime got a rail gun. We're boned...

I like that one, too. Optimus actually riding his trailer. That'd be something to see.

I would have preferred any of those concept heads to the final version.

MAN!! Those Optimus Trailer Attack modes are so insane!!! They should've used some :/
And I see some way better heads for Laserbeak...wasnt that happy with the vulture one they chose.

A bit too pink... but ZOMG nice!

Imagine if they made a Leader Megatron toy with a trailer like the one in that concept art...

Course... how you make either types of trailers form a tail like that in toy form... um... yea............

Really like this concept art.

Holy jumping horse crap. That Battle-tank-trailer-combo is in-friggin-sane. I want it.

I can't really recall an Optimus toy where the trailer combines with the vehicle mode like that. I hope they revisit this idea down the road. Great concept.

Its totally BWII Galvatron.

I see the influence of the concept art on what ended up being Ultimate Optimus.
Power12354

He does look a lot better darker.
Tampalicious
I kinda like that "aggresive buzzard" with the red eyes head, it looks a little better than the final version IMO
LUGNUT1995
Igor is one of my favourite designs and characters. Looks like the Laserbeak toy was based allot on the concept art. Love the idea of Optimus' trailer becoming....ONE MASSIVE CANNON OF DESTRUCTION AND OWNAGE! *Ahem* Yes, I like that idea.
Greyley
Awesome! We need an artbook STAT.

The Laserbeak concepts are my favorite. It's interesting that his head started out very realistic, then got more abstract and robotty as the designs progressed. I might use the one with the glowing red eyes as a desktop pic.
HIM666fan
my only problem with the prime trailer stuff is it seems so darn Gundamy lol (new word yes)

id unno there pretty sick concepts but those look like things id be wanting to see in a live action gundam movie or something.

igor looks amazing i love the concepts the final product is even better!

Why did they settle on the flight tech alone when they can use the whole trailer as his armor. I hope they'll come up of a good apex armor design for the next installment.
