    Point of order, Grindor is a Sikorsky S-80 (CH-53E Super Stallion), a much bigger bird than the S-65 (CH/HH/MH-53 Sea Stallion/Super Jolly Green Giant/Pave Low, aka Blackout) it was evolved from.

    Compare:
    Blackout - https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/b/b4/MH-53J_Pave_Low_Line_Drawing.svg
    Grindor - Sikorsky CH-53E Super Stallion - Wikipedia

    Note lack of nose radar/avionics bulges, larger rotor with seventh blade, six-foot greater length, redesigned "sail" between fuselage and rotor with third engine and entirely new cranked-over tailgroup with gull-wing stabilizer. Hasbro got cheap on the toys (IE, "Hasbro being Hasbro, Day Ending In Y") but the movie CGI models distinctly capture the differences. Hopefully they won't lame-a** out and redeco Blackout when Studio Series Grindor's turn comes...

    I'm still waiting for this supposed G1 Megatron design they had frozen at the dam.
    There must be some concept art

    Man, this movie has some gorgeous concept art. I love the atmosphere in this piece. I think Bumblebee had a really solid design team (I think all the movies have had really talented designers, but this stuff is probably the most appealing to me).

    I guess this also explains why Charlie has shorter hair in the Studio Series toy. That toy was probably designed before her appearance was finalized. I actually wish we'd see more concept art of the human characters from these movies. It's neat to see how the robots slowly evolve into their final designs, but I'd also like to see the same with the humans.

    You know, when Travis Knight said that Dropkick was based on Megaton, I wondered what the hell he was talking about. But seeing these? Oh yeah 100%. Wonder why they went for something far more generic in the end...

    In the end result I liked the David vs Goliath fight we got much more. Having 12 feet Bee using all his wits and tactics to outsmart the brute strength and firepower of 18 ft Blitzwing made the fight way more interesting and intense and way more less one-sided.

    Definitely agree. Also, it made sense for his Jeep form to be smaller since the Jeep he scans was pretty tiny and lightweight (even then it was one of the more cheaty designs).

    I do think this is pretty cool art though. I wouldn't mind seeing something like this for an older, leader version of Bumblebee in a future sequel. (Bumblebee Prime?) Maybe with Humvee parts instead of Jeep parts.

    I think this design could better be recycled for Hound.

    Yeah, I could actually see that working very well.

    All it needs is a shoulder mounted gun or missile. I would prefer a gun because a missile would be single use and could be easily torn of and used against him (see fight between Bee and Blitzwing and his missile was hidden under his arm panel).

    I think it could be combined with this design:
