War for Cybertron: New (old) concept art leaked?

Motto: "Don't do drugs, beer's cheaper anyway!"
Well, remember Transformers War For Cybertron? Cool game wasn't it? Also the character designs where pretty good AWESOME! Even if you didn't play any version of the game, or played and didn't like it, you had to admit that the character designs where pretty cool. They where like a hybrid between the Classic and the Movie aesthetics, with just a bit of Animated to top it off.

And thanks to the concept artist David White we get a new helping of designs for War for Cybertron - the Nintendo DS version that is.
The designs are of Cyclonus, Grimlock, Swoop and Bluestreak. This gives us a great opportunity of seeing good, clear artwork of the designs.

While we have mirrored the artwork, you can click here to see the original postings on David White's DeviantArt account.

Very cool concept art--some nifty ideas going on.

That said, the original poster needs to install a spell check program ASAP. Just saying...

I found one spelling error, and that was due to it just being the wrong word, I do have a spell checker installed, however, it only shows spelling and not Grammar, which was the bulk of the mistakes.

So yea, would be cool if someone could point them out.

These are great. I may or may not still be playing this game after all this time. I wish High Moon would include these and the DS characters in a DLC for the other consoles, but - eh - it'll never happen.

Sorry, hate to be a nitpicker--I'm an English teacher by trade. Looks like you fixed the obvious one (coll for cool) and the sentence capitalization.

Still have two instances of where for were though, which you're correct, spell check wouldn't have picked up on.

But no worries; I was just raggin' on ya :grin:

Agreed! That Cyclonus is SO my favorite! I know we got a couple Cycloni of late, but this would look delightful with the other WFC deluxes!

Still say the WFC transformers are the best looking bots ever. I loved the console game but the ds versions were disappointing, the graphics were horrible even for a ds game and the difficulty just got way to hard as the game progressed. Would've loved to see Cyclonus, HotRod, and a few other characters that were in the ds game to be brought to the console version, but that games so dead im surprised that the servers are still up.

My only qualm is that Bluestreak is colored to look like Red Alert. Also, if they would have ripped the "War Within" Grimlock, instead of creating a new one, im sure no one would have complained. lol

Now that's what I would call "good" art, the character designs are superb, both in robot and alt-modes. Too bad Bluestreak didn't make the cut into the final game, better luck next time.

Megatron Wolf, I've played a lot of Nintendo DS games and I would say the graphics were fairly good, the difficulty felt a little harsh at times, but it wasn't nothing I couldn't beat, I actually liked the difficulty because a lot of DS games are waaay too easy. Both versions had me and my brother engaged for at least 3 weeks, most games get old after the first week.

That said, it definitively had some flaws, like the dark energon pools that have various effects (either they damage you, kill you or return you to the start of the section), the laser power being useless against the majority of the enemies, bosses that tend to get really nasty when you're under-leveled (this being a portable game, I just save or close the system and take a break until I feel strong enough to beat them) and cheaply done "cut scenes" (calling them that would be an stretch) that lack dialogue when you pass the mission, except during the so-called "ending".

There two major letdowns, however, the inability to fight against Megatron (or Optimus if you picked the Con version) in Story mode and the lack of a free-mode like the one featured in Transformers 2007 that ROFT also lacked.

And because the music isn't that bad, the characters were done well, the voice acting was good and the graphics were fine, plus I only encountered one glitch and it was a rare one that I'll never find again (unlike TF 2007 that was INFESTED), I give this game an 8.5.

I'm surprised these never saw the light of day, alot more interesting than some others included. MAybe they have been made for DLC but have been abandoned.

STrange that they even bothered with Cyclonus, he looks great an all, but in the TF timeline he didn't even exist until last year, there was never a Cyclonus back on CYbertron, so if they did include him no matter how kool he looks, the fact they have put so much effort into the story would ruin it for me, I hate to see so much thought put into something be blemished by a school boy error. I'm surprised I'm the only one who's mentioned it, I'm usualy really bad at story technicalities, I guess everyone has overlooked it due to looks.

I think that looks are part of it but also the fact that we are so far along in the TF mythos and there have been so many reboots of the TF line that the "gray" areas are becoming larger between all the different stories. The younger fans coming into the Transformer universe are hard pressed to keep everything straight if they try to follow it back further than 10 years. Some of us old schoolers have a hard enough time just keeping 25+ years of the US and UK stuff straight without even trying to throw the Japanese lines into the mix.

But enough about that...I just have to say that I think I actually like the WFC versions of Swoop and Grimlock better than the War Within renderings of them. They are very similar but the WFC versions are just a bit more streamlined and detailed out and Cyclonus as well looks a lot better detailed and has just enough more bulk to make him look brutal but not so much bulk to make him appear as if it would slow him down any.
These are all excellent picks and I'd snatch up the whole bunch if they were to make figures for these.

Swoop's my favorite one. I really like how they used his trademark crest as a functional tail-fin in alt mode, instead of trying to hide it or something.

This is the first time I've seen DS exclusive characters. For some reason, there isn't a lot of artwork for that on the internet.

They look great!
