    Pretty much, yeah.

    True, but then it's easier for me to overlook that considering that screen-to-toy (or character model) accuracy was something that even G1 had its problems with.

    nothing screams "ruined potential" much like the Bayverse now. I was a hardcore fan of the movies up until recently and even KNOWING aspects like this were dropped for whatever reason doesn't quite bring me back to the dark side. these designs are seriously spectacular. I never thought I'd hear myself say it, but I actually wouldn't mind a reboot. Will still anticipate and most likely love TF5 and those 11 other planned movies though :lol

    I really hope 3A makes something like this. I love these designs, but I would want them articulated and only 1/4 the price.

    Prime 1 is going in the right direction with these IMO. Hopefully these sell like hotcakes.

    Tread-cape! I had no idea I wanted them, and now it pains me that the only Transformer with them is going to be an expensive statue...

    It's also pretty amazing how far Josh Nizzi got because of that fan art he did. I mean obviously there's more to it than that, but he's really living the dream.

    I love this art style. This is what the movies should have been.

    As much as I like the movie designs that made it to the screen, these do work really, really nicely.

    I love everything about these designs. I hope we get to see them in a future movie someday.

    Megatron having a cape made of his tank treads is the epitome of badass.

    Treadcape is now required by law to be a standard design cue for Megs. Even when he turns into a jet.

    I agree, but I need to work out how the treads can split apart to form a cape. It looks more like a ragged cape or scarf. That pic of the back is too small for details.

    But if it can effectively work out, it would be awesome for sure.

    Amen. The non-TF-looking designs are half the reason for my dislike of the movies. These look fantastic.

    That said, I'm seconding the reboot idea... If Bay is heavily involved, the movies really don't stand a chance. Hearing that the current series is planned out another decade was a huge disappointment. I would love to see a competent team get these redesigns to work with.

    Even so, with some new writers on staff and if they used these models, there would at least be hope.

    But they are not supposed to look alien! If they look alien it's not transformers anymore, but in name.

    Personally to me, these designs look no different than the designs we have now.

    OP. meh, its the same slimmer look we've seen in everything since the first movie. i prefer a bit more bulk to my prime.
