Lovely!~ <3

I would've really liked for this

to have been Que. :x


EDIT: While I'm here, and speaking of concept art, does anyone happen to know of any Rampage/Skipjack art from RoTF? I've only ever seen one of him - and it was in a photo of a poster thing at an Australian event, so it's too small to be useful. Anyone?? :) Any official, or just plain good art of him would be most welcome. :D PMs to keep this thread on topic?

That last one reminds me of Blackarchania.

Dreadwind... Worksheet... Warpath... Steeljaw... Undermine... man, they really went through the names during DOTM's production. I'm delighted with the names for the final characters, but I have to admit that Dreadwind, Hooligan and Dirtbag sound cooler than Crankcase, Crowbar and Hatchet.

Here's hoping for two more Dread deluxes!

These look very nice.Undermine would have been a much better name for Igor.Too bad he wasn't called that. :BANG_HEAD:

i hate all of those except the optimus prime with trailer stealth force mode and that was good, not awesome just good, possibly a fine.

but the most important thing is i REALLY DISPISE ALL THE PICS except the one i said i was fine with.

The Battle Cruiser kind of looks like HA Backfire's gun mode.

I like it, but not as impressive as Josh Nizzi's, and the others.
BTW, I don't know why I like Igor so much. He's so awesome (maybe because I like Long Haul a lot :???: ).

I like how Que looks with the coat and dinged-up white paint scheme. Wish they had kept that.


I wonder what Igor is supposed to be. He's largely made of Long Haul's head, so is he actually Long Haul (Headmaster?), or did Megatron use parts of dead Cons to make new ones, or something else?

I'm not fond of many of those trailer combos, but I do like this hover-bike thing:

Well, from reading comics, and TFwiki.net, it seems like Igor is made from Long Haul and some other guys. if you notice, his legs don't really look legs in the film. So, much consideration from that, I think he's made from A* long haul.

there's a lot of long haul clones out there!

Some of these concepts are better than the movie. The last wing attachment for Prime looks way better than the movie one, and they went from all those good looking Laserbeak concepts to what we saw in the movie? talk about bad decision making. I get it though, they probably wanted it to look as far away from human as possible... doesn't mean it had to be so ugly though, jeese. :lol:

This. If they make a Legends toy, I'll just call him Undermine. It sounds a lot more like a Transformers name.

Eh I don't know, I kinda like Igor better, but that design itself is awesome.
I hope if they make a Leader Megatron, he comes with an Igor/Undermine instead of a Mechtech...

True, Undermine is more...TransFormery.

I didn't see a lot of these in the movie. I like seeing the concept art it makes you realize the amount of work that are put into making these blockbuster movies.
