Not really. Maybe a better explanation on the mutagen and the foot clan.

That would involve using common sense. Sadly there is nothing common about it.

The guns that the KSI drones fire in the movie. That one part after Optimus breaks the cage, freeing Grimlock, where it cuts to them firing at Hound and Bumblebee. I like the sound they make.

I like that sound.

Thats an awesome sound effect. And i'm happy the dvd comes out in sptember. Captain america 2 is taking forever for a dvd release. Aoe is getting it done. And I think Lockdown is a transformer, but he never took sides he just accepts missions from other races.

Why did the question of Lockdown being a transformer come up? It was a kinda obvious, with what, transforming and all.

It was kind of random of me to say that, but he seemed just different compared to the rest. For example, when Optimus is fighting Galvatron and Lockdown comes, when his gun fave transforms, small tentacles can be seen coming out of his face while transforming. I just was stating what I thought. Maybe I should say, not exactly the same as a Cybertronion.

One can be a Cybertronian and belong to neither faction.

And if one goes by the greater Movieverse continuity, he used to be a Decepticon when he appeared in the Cyber Missions cartoon, the Unite for the Universe manga, and the Nefarious comic series. Since some time would have past between those events and the AOE movie's events, it's entirely possible that he left the Cons and sided with the Creators during the intermediate time.

Lockdown may have never been in either faction. They weren't always at war,so he may have been a normal Cybertronian who left Cybertron and decided to be a Bounty Hunter.He could've been modified and upgraded at any point.He could be hated by both factions.

[quote="RSDADDIMUS2" I follow only the films,not the comics as they constantly contradict, so I'm no authority. This is just how I picture him.[/quote]It's the comics that work to undo the contradictions set about by the movies. Virtually every post-movie comic has done something to fix some kind of continuity error created by each film that came before them.

Like, "The Reign of Starscream" fixed Brawl's calling himself "Devastator" from the first movie, and showed what happened to Barricade when he just vanished in the first movie.

"Sector 7" and "Foundation" patched up a whole network of continuity errors created by ROTF, while also prepping us for DOTM.

And "Convergence" fixed just about every remaining inconsistency and oddity across all three films and all IDW movieverse comics, such as finally explaining how The Fallen got out of his sarcophagus prior to ROTF when he was still trapped within it after the Nemesis it was aboard left Cybertron.

Concept Art

Postby william-james88 » Tue Aug 12, 2014 12:07 pm

Hi all,

If this has already been posted, please forgive me. But if not then...


Here are 4 more great peices of Age of Extinction Concept art featuring the Bumblebee and Stinger design. The blue Bumblebee design is particularly interesting since it has a head very reminescent of the Dinobots' robot heads.

http://bwtf.com/node/3471
Latest TFs: G1 Optimus Prime, G1 Springer, G1 Grimlock, G1 Slugslinger, G1 Silverbolt, G1 Sharkticon, G1 Thrust, G1 Topspin, G1 Scorponok with Lord Zarak.

I'm probably the only one who likes the head design on this pic than the "Skeletor" face of the finalized Bumblebee. >:oP

Don't get me wrong; I'm okay with (read: gotten used to) the actual movieverse Bee's face, but if given a choice, I prefer this one.

Actually, his finalized battle mask is awesome; I'd just prefer it if it stayed on permanently.

The thing about the bayformers that I never liked was the misunderstanding of good design. First of all you need to make a simple and distinct silhouette, then some larger forms with clear purpose and then smaller features to add detail where necessary. The Bayformers are ALL detail in a confusing mess with no clear purpose. Sometimes it's hard to tell if something is even an arm. While these are talented and well executed images, they aren't very well designed.

For an example of good design and what i really wish the movie transformers looked like, have a look at the design on Toyworld's TW02b Black Orion figure

http://www.kapowtoys.co.uk/toyworld-tw- ... orion.html

You've got the clear silhouette, the larger forms and the intricate detail. I'd say this figure is detailed enough that it would negate Mr Bay's problem with G1-esque designs. That they would look too simple and boring onscreen. Oh for what might have been.

So has the release date of the other editions changed or is it just these that are coming out in December.

Also to the person who mentioned toyworlds Orion, in my opinion I don't consider it good design, it barely looks like the character it's supposed to be.
