    Might be the most bad-ass looking Cybertronian Optimus alt mode I have ever seen.

    Wow! Optimus and Bumblebee look so much like their WFC(video game) selves in vehicle mode in this concept art!

    Interesting for sure. But, I can't help seeing a rocket pop followed by a steel dildo...

    That Cybertronian Optimus looks better than the final look in the movie, but I get why they didn't use it. It would be a bit visually confusing for a character that only showed up for 1 minute to show up again in the end of the film with a completely different 80s inspired body.

    That Optimus.,,,.can we have toys?
    I didn't like the robot mode for this version of Jazz or the Sideswipe remold, but I liked the Cybertronian car modes.

    Well, I've already got a Cybertronian Bumblebee but I wouldn't say no tro another one.

    Hopefully they had some possible alt mode concepts for Soundwave and Shockwave as well

    Alt modes are very WFC, rad.
    Still not the biggest fan of Shockwave's look but it beats the movie version so I should probably shut up and not complain lest we go backwards.

    Maybe they can save it for a flashback in the Optimus/Bumblebee Buddy flick or save it for the Cybertron Animated Prequel.

    I hope we see more of Cybertron and these Cybertronian bot designs because they're goddamn gorgeous!

    Interesting how Ironhide has 2 additional repaint characters: a cyan one(Towline?) and a gold one(Canopy?). And it turns out the other green Seeker who people thought was Acid Storm was not him, but is actually Thrust! Although, this is concept art. So that may have changed. After all, Shatter here is actually referred to as Fracture!

    Funny how they use a pic of FansToys Rouge as a reference for Arcee too. LOL!

    Funny enough, I like the Cybertron Optimus design better than what they went with, at least on Cybertron. It makes more sense for him to lack the obvious G1 design elements since he didn't scan the truck mode yet. Also, that truck mode is heavily reminiscent of War for Cybertron Optimus's vehicle mode (the best part of that design - the robot mode looked like a marshmallow-man Dreamwave character, and the less said about Fall of Cybertron Optimus, the better).

    As an aside, I feel like Optimus's rifle could have had the barrel chopped in half and it still would have worked, given the placement of the grip relative to the buttstock.

    Bumblebee also looks like his robot mode came from War for Cybertron, which again, I'm perfectly okay with.

    I still don't care for Shockwave, but that's because he's so G1 it hurts, just like the rest of the Cybertron cast.

    All of the Cybertron landscapes are the best part. It's the planet we know and love.

    I hope we can see more of this in the next movies...





    PS as a G1 Arcee reference, they use a FT Rouge pic LOL...!
