    This doesn\'t make sense. The whole concept behind beast wars is they needed organic bodies to protect them from the Energen, so they picked the animal forms. This looks nothing like any type of an organic body. Plus normally the early concept art they do isn\'t what it will look like in the end.

    I talked to him on Instagram a few months ago when he posted it there, I also posted it in the beast wars thread here around the time that TonTons first Kingdom leaks came out but no one really noticed but essentially he seemed to imply that this was done around the time of Dark of the Moon, but likely Age of Extinction.

    1. im pretty sure companies care about the percentages when it comes to determining a movies success rather than raw numbers of cash
    example: i make 2 movies, first one cost $250 second cost $500, first movie makes $500 while the other movie makes $501 while technically the second movie made overall more the first movie profited doubled my initial production

    2. marketing isn't accounted for in movie budget

    This.

    In case people ask for proof of this, the artist himself said this was designed before Bumblebee meaning it's from the TLK era.

    I kinda like the beast mode head but it screams too much of “it’s realistic so no color”. You’re doing a robotic cheetah in a Beast Wars movie. Go off!

    That Primal wasn’t nearly as bad as this.

    Wow. I didn't think the Bayverse could get any worse. This is gross.

    It won't because we wouldn't be seeing it then. In fact, the movie isn't even happening anymore.

    All we want is the beast wars guys with better graphics. Thats it. You don\'t need to reinvent the wheel every time.

    This doesn't exactly count out the likelihood of this being the aesthetic, it seems like a chinese market wet dream

    They never thought highly of transformers, atleast not Michael Bay. He always despised those characters and he’s said it himself, he’s shown it well enough as they’re just big cgi props that talk that double as car and military sponsorships, they can slap any name they want but they were never characters in their eyes, if you asked Michael Bay what he thinks of Beast Wars, or G1, any series since that we talk about regularly, the same way you would ask Jon Favreau or Kevin Feige about Star Wars or Marvel, you wouldn’t get a good answer if at all, is it any wonder why the live action movies were they way they were?It was a way to keep making money and they made money so they kept making more until people stopped watching. With Bumblebee and this new movie coming out I hope the franchise gets the movies it deserved the entire time.

    Well I really REALLY hope this helps Beast Wars fans to finally understand fully why G1 fans are so PO'd at the Bay films! Why is it so Damn hard for these live action concept artist to stay true to the original source material!!! They need to stop taking so much creative liberty's!!!! Enough Is Enough Already!!!!

    I have always loved the look of G1 Ironhide, and really wanted to see G1 Ironhide in live action!
    20210121_184105.jpg
    But instead we got this Bayverse character design, that looks nothing like Ironhide in bot or Altmode, that Paramount just name slapped with Ironhide!
    20210121_183425.jpg

    And now I'm sure Beast Wars fans would love to see Cheetor in live action! And BW fans will want to see this:
    20210121_184808.jpg
    But instead this is what the concept artist was working on:
    20210121_185036.jpg !!!!!!!!!!!!!

    There is clearly a huge disconnect between the original artist and the live action concept artist!!! This is definitely a problem that Hasbro needs to either address with Paramount or completely stop letting them make live action Transformers movies!!!!!
