    Looks more like a Go-Bot. Actually, it looks like a G.I. Joe/Go-Bot crossover. Like if Wild Bill and Tux had a love child.

    I agree, this does not look at all like the previous line arts. This is supported by this response to the tweet a few comments down.

    Is the source reliable?  I agree with others it does not look like G1

    A few Tweets down, someone responds (Google-translated):

    "Oh, this is my design base! And it seems to be believed even if you lie! (Laugh) I was handed over the sketches of the Diakron era and the rough idea, so I had worked on it based on it, is it still there now?"

    It's the embodiment of Cho-Go-Ken of 'Cash for Gokin' Preorder66 fame.

    Ha, yeah, I was going to say he looks like Tux's country cousin.

    This does NOT seem like early G1 concept art to me. This story needs to be verifed. What toy was this even supposed to represent? Like others said, it bares passing resemblance to a Gobot. There use to be an interview where one of the G1 artists said that the first thing they did was remove tires from the robot mode. So is this drawing supposed to be a tech spec image for an unreleased toy? This story desperately needs to be fact checked.

    This looks more like a prototype for MachineRobo MR-44. Car is the same, but the transformation is different and no cowboy hat.

    Might want to change the title to "Pre-Transformers/Diaclone Concept Art."

    Maybe "G1 and Related Concept Art" would be better since DiaClone also spills over to the Microman line as well. Early Japanese toy line designs cross over brands all the time. Some Super Sentai designs ended up in Machine Robo.
