    Yeah, those just don't work at all for me. Maybe for a Star Wars it'd be fine.

    I’m glad most of these designs didn’t happen, they look more like mechs than sentient alien robots. They’re nice, but don’t feel like Transformers.

    Assuming this concept art was made to scale with reality... that’s some insane mass shifting going on with Lockdown-Dropkick, he looks at least Prime sized

    I actually REALLY like these four. Maybe not as main characters, but I wouldn't mind seeing designs like these used as background soldiers. I actually think this artist creates Transformers that look somewhat realistic. If Transformers were real, this is kind of what I'd imagine they'd look like. They look alien in stature and layout, but not in a 'lots of tiny shards' way that comes across looking overly stylized. I really like how the faces are very minimal. They definitely look like Star Wars droids, which to me is a good thing.

    Doing a reverse search on these brings up these little figures.

    Dropkick has his proper weapon, unlike the Studio Series figure. Shatter really reminds me on Ant-Man!

    Edit: turns out there's a whole collection of them

    Early Shatter heads look a hell of a lot like the movie Ant Man helmets.

    That might explain why her size kept changing throughout the movie.

    You should probably make a separate thread in the News and Rumors section. I don't think we've ever seen these.

    I prefer the designs we've gotten in the movie.

    Those mouth beads on the last two—it makes me feel uncomfortable.

    My mind immediately went to places it shouldn't have.

    The second to last one especially looks like it has... uses.
