    These three at least saw release, just not under the DOTM banner. The Megs just ended up being a retool of the Optimus Prime mold though, but Be Cool did have a Red Mirage... Probably unrelated. The real notable one is Soundwave, as even his more G1-ish Bot Shot remains unreleased.

    While I'm not sure how Soundwave would've worked, he said Mirage is a chibi-Ferrari.

    So I'm assuming that the back of the Ferrari sticks up for support, and the curved front gives it a shit-eating grin.

    I hope they make it out SOMEHOW. I've wanted a DOTM-based Soundwave.

    It would be a smart idea to make these as AOE tie ins.

    Interesting that the Botshots Shockwave is more Movie like design - the final toy has an Earth Mode for him (One I'd still quite like to see as a Classics/Generations Voyager class toy).

    I wish all his concept designs for the ROTF game got toys; that's about two or three waves of product!

    Plus, his Ironhide and Optimus cab concepts are so dead-on it's astounding.
