    Talk about a downgrade, this is way cooler than the design in the movie.

    Really like his movie design (SS please) but he looks pretty good here, and neat originally he was going to have his ROTF toy colors.

    Not sure why they keep doing the old man thing with the flying autobots such as Jetfire, TLK Lieutenant, and Stratosphere. It’s getting tiresome, but that concept art looks amazing!

    I like the nod to the ROTF toy with the colours.

    I don’t think it’s tiring since all we really had was Jetfire, Liutenant was on scene for barely 15 seconds and easy to forget since they did nothing with him and was a place filler. Think it’s cool that they brought a toy only character into media now but it is funny that in the second film of a continuity they introduce a old man jetbot. Would love to see Stratosphere used more now, could work easily as transport for the Autobots. He’d fit in with ES if they wanted.

    Actually looks decent and not drowning in stereotypes and cliches, hence we'll never see it used.

    Wow, this looks awesome. Loving the skeletal-masked centurion vibe. Much better than the geriatric drunkard who literally coughed up his own lung.

    That looks much cooler than the desheveled worthless bozo that the final version was.

    I kinda like this, he's got a skull-like head / face and a helmet, nice color scheme too.

    I think asking for originality from the movies is asking a lot.

    Whoever decided to reject this design and go with the old man design should get fired.

    Maybe this version would have done something other than drop off Bumblebee in the battle to save the planet.

    Heck with Stratosphere. The RotF toy design was better). This looks like a really good base for Lugnut though.

    It's a neat design for sure. I enjoyed Stratosphere for what he was, I really can't pretend like I prefer this or the one we got.

    All I know is that I very much desire a studio series stratosphere toy. And if Hasbro won't do it I'll just grab the Tobot Air Hyde and do a little customizing

    He should have had the pilot\'s name written underneath the cockpit window, \"Captain Ben Derisgreat.\"

    Why did this movie keep downgrading the designs for some characters? We had a perfect Rampage, we had a better Wheeljack, BB had a slightly better OP, and now a better Stratosphere.
    Arcee was the only design I felt was an actual upgrade for the most part. And no, not for "internet" reasons.
