    From his facebook. Design concepts that were passed on to the engineers turn into the toys we have now. Thanks to Daimchoc for pointing it out. :)

    That's a badass look for Alpha Trion.

    Wish the actual Alpha Trion toy would look half as cool as that.

    Turning the Alpha Trion toy into a triple changer didn't do it any favours. I really hope a 3P makes a version of that staff. It's a more appropriate accessory for the character than the sword.

    That Trion looks more like a warlord than a 'good guy'.
    Not bad, but it highlights just how horrible the actual figure is. Heck, I'd buy it if it looked like the art.

    Whoa! Those drawings surpass reality don't they? Especially for Alpha-Trion. TR PM Prime is not as far off and so doesn't compare as poorly to the actual toy, but Hasbro really should have given him new rifles instead of Ultra Magnus' old ones for their #1 signature character. I also appreciate that the trailer-front was envisioned as solid, rather than the hollow, open-panel design they went with. Hasbro didn't even paint TR Prime's wheels or Apex's bot-mode face, sheesh how much could a tiny drop of paint cost? I know, I know, blah-blah-blah, "budget-this", "economize-that", but I don't have to like it!:rolleyes: 

    I wish that the HasTak Toy-Designers were given free-reign over their designs/blueprints from start-to-finish to see a final retail product made exactly as they envisioned it, without compromises, cut-backs, omissions, or re-sizing (shrinking), of any kind. I thought that the Masterpiece line was the best hope of this, but there are realistic financial constraints even with those figures of course, but a fan can dream! :D

    Let this art serve as a big middle finger to everyone who falsely accused Alpha Trion of being a "premold" for someone else.

    Emillio, your background in drawing dosnt mean you can engineer and design tangible robots that can convert into trucks or a lion.

    Please stick to drawing the figures AFTER theyve been designed by Hasbro / TT. They basically used your designs as an influence. The figures we got barely look like your stellar artwork...

    Emilio himself states on his Facebook that the work he was hired for was more influence than anything. :)  But I agree, these look sooo good!

    This is how it\'s done. While I understand ILMs need to suggest a truly alien civilization based on eons old sentient technology, it certainly doesn\'t hurt to design humanoid forms that balance beauty (or at the very least clarity) and power. Emilano\'s work marries these goals perfectly in his art, Transformers or otherwise. Love this stuff!

    I would had wished that A3 would had a cape... To make it look more like an Strong King... But he doesn't. He look's more like Reinhardt from Overwatch now.

    These awesome drawings make the final toys even more depressing. I dont know why they even bother to hire people to draw stuff they can never pull off in reality.

    Ha, apparently the drawings were "passed on" to the designers in the form of paper airplanes that went sailing right over their heads as they proceeded to poorly design these toys.
