The Dinobots are really close to their toys here, with Scorn having one sail, Slug's weapons in dino mode, and Strafe's two heads being identical. Though thankfully Slash's toy didn't go with those crazy cowboy spurs.

I wonder how One Step Changer Slash and Construct-Bots Scorn look together...


one step slash looks okay.. it's still too big since scorn and slug are both deluxes.. which now infuriates me.. why in the hell is slog getting a voyager mold when that CLEARLY should've gone to scorn.. it's REALLY annoying.. i'd prefer them not even giving us the dinobots that aren't in the movie.

i mean.. the dinobots, all of them, in the movie are gigantic.. yet scorn and slug are both deluxes.. it's very annoying.

I'm not talking about the Generations Dinobots, though. I was referring to the Construct-Bots versions, which are slightly more in scale with the Generations figures. It's not perfect, but it's close enough for me.

Looks more like a Biotyranno from the Genesis line, with guns on its back.

People need to quit being butt hurt that the Bay movies are not G1. That's like saying you hate Transformers Prime because it's nothing like Armada.

Sweet Primus, you mean an early concept of Lockdown had him turn into a beaten up, black and green classic car with an air scoop? One that would conceivably be better for disguising oneself than an expensive concept car?

Well why the hell would he look like that?

Yep, he did look like Grievous. The final design is far better. Grimlock is very cool, almost a shame this glorious design was not used.

We have even more Transformers: Age of Extinction concept art to share. This time form artist Michael Hritz via the Concept Robots Blog. Below we have a trio of bots commissioned by Polaris based on their ATV's. They didn't make it into the film, but still great to see the designs. Check 'em out below, for more artist commentary visit the Concept Robots Blog.

Red:
This was based on a new version of Polaris RZR makes which reminds me of an angry little gorilla in that it is small but extremely tough with its performance/handling and styling. It was only fitting to make it into one. The transformation is fairly simple: the hood becomes the chest, the wheels become fists and shoulders, the fenders become muscle elements on the thigh and biceps areas, the trailing arms become femurs, the roll cage stays where it is. I figure this would be an Autobot.

Image
White:
This was an alternative to the red angry gorilla design but based on the same vehicle. It is loosely inspired by Demolishor. Trying to keep the same feeling as the gorilla but not so organic (more deception-feeling) so I made it into more of a small tank, armed to the teeth, with an all terrain attitude. For this complex transformation the wheels merge into one "track", the hood and face move into the center with the eyes hanging out on the side to see around the track, the rear fenders become rocket pods and the suspension becomes the inner structure.

Image
Green:
This one is a new road-based vehicle that Polaris will release shortly. I tried to make this one contrast the other two by being faster-looking, lighter and using blade weapons. I think it could pass for a Deception or Autobot. The transformation is simple, the front rims become the blades on the hands, the hood becomes the chest, a rear vent feature becomes a hood, the funky drivetrain becomes the spine and "leg".

Yeah, more of this Hritz art, but not in Transformers. TF2 gave me more than I wanted of wheel bots and unicycle legs. Best part about TF4 was making all of the bots more humanoid on all sides.

Still, these would make great mech designs in like a Robotech movie or something.

A bit of a retread of RotF...

How would Hasbro even make a toy of the white Demolishor-esque one?
