    I love the power fist idea for skids and mudflap...they seem like they are more close ranged than the other autobots..and for that matter telling by there toy modes they wont have many power weapons in the movie

    Wheels in the spine looks cooler than the design they finally went with

    The final version looks the best, I like the wheels on the feet better.

    It's close enough. It seems like in many cases the movie concept artists weren't so much drawing perfectly detailed robots that the modelers would copy exactly...they were just winging in roughish shapes and tubes and the modelers filled in the rest and made everything into hard detail.

    I mean aside from the Proctor artwork, like his Optimus and Bumblebee, some of the other Transformers like Starscream, Ratchet, Bonecrusher, Mixmaster...etc. have rougher art.
