Earlier this week, Seibertron.com user Cyberpath posted a piece of unused concept art by Floro Dey in the Energon Pub forums. It got some attention and good comments, and inspired others to track down more of Dey's art for his vision of the G1 universe. Now, Seibertron user sabrblade has gone and compiled an almost comprehensive list of all the available artwork out there, from his blog and his Etsy "FDartstudio" account. The concepts span across seasons 2 and 3 and the 1986 movie of the G1 cartoon, and some that never made it into the series at all. Take a look below at an image heavy post, and feast your eyes on some early G1 goodness.

Do those concept drawings of the movie Decepticons remind anyone else of Bayverse bots :P?

Seriously, it's kinda eerie. I wonder if Bay's design team saw these and drew inspiration from them for his insecoidbots.

Also, what the heck's up with the whole Cybertron having a robot mode thing? Was that seriously a concept tossed around for the movie as in Primus and all that? I thought all that stuff was just junk cooked up for the comics.

Simon Furman created the character of Primus in 1988. This idea of Cybertron being a giant robot came about two whole years before Furman would create Primus. So, no, it's not meant to be Primus. It was from the discarded early draft for the 1986 movie called "The Secret of Cybertron":
TFWiki.net wrote:"The Secret of Cybertron" was a proposed script by writer Flint Dille and creative director Jay Bacal, hastily produced in a week after they read Ron Friedman's original draft for The Transformers: The Movie and deemed it "incoherent." Although hugely proud and excited about the script they had created, Dille and Bacal were disappointed to discover that executive producers Joe Bacal and Tom Griffin did not share their enthusiasm, and "The Secret of Cybertron" was promptly "filed away."

Details on the story of "The Secret of Cybertron" remain minimal, as the script is lost to the mists of time - Dille believes he may own a copy, but has yet to uncover it. It is believed that at least some aspects of the story made it into the completed movie, although Dille describes the finished feature as "such a Frankenstein of different drafts and ideas and people" that he cannot remember which elements, if any, originated in his and Bacal's script. What is known, though, is that "The Secret of Cybertron" originated the idea of the Quintessons as the creators of the Transformers, which Dille later revived for "Five Faces of Darkness".

As pieced together from different interviews with Dille, the story would have allegedly involved Optimus Prime embarking on a quest to discover the origin of the Transformer race. The titular "secret" would have been that Cybertron itself was a giant robot, and the planet would have been transformed by the Matrix of Leadership to fight Unicron, who was in this draft a weapon apparently created by the Quintessons, intentionally setting up a "brotherly" dynamic between the two planets years before Simon Furman got the idea into his noggin.

Looking at those Galvatron, Scourge and Cyclonus concepts, they look a hell of a lot like Ulises Farinas' weird take on the trio... Maybe he was privy to this art and was acting to homage it, actually being very clever and not making Heart of Darkness look rubbish?
...Yeah, I don't think so somehow.

And that Proto-Primus looks awesome. I love the multi-layered complicated look... Cos lets face it, even in the 80's before Mr Bay, it couldn't have been hard to imagine that a robot that size would be almost infinitely complex.
I think I'd like that in plastic.

Hey, where's my news credit point? I posted some of these months ago and no one seemed to care. :lol:

I wonder if the sketch work with the exposed inner mechanics of Galvatron, Cyclonus, Scourge and Nightbird was a type of robotic écorché, or an actual proposed look. Probably the former.

I think The Transformers could have pulled off a robot Cybertron, but I never liked the idea, so I'm glad the concept never made it to the series. Though the illustration is great!
Without the creativity and skill of Dery I think the show might not have been as successful and timeless.

The lush nuances of Dery's watercolors were apparently lost in translation once animated for the cartoon episodes and movie. The sci-fi quality of the images reminds me of Ralph McQuarrie's Star Wars concept art, or to a lesser degree the Ralph Bakshi era Spider-Man cartoon backgrounds. Although probably budgetary prohibitive, it would be cool to see future animated projects integrate what for me is an epically grandiose visual energy that would become legendary among Transformers fans.

Well, the concepts for Galvatron, Scourge and Cyclonus explain why the toys look the way they do. The designs got changed after the toy designers started work and couldn't change it.

Posted by Sabrblade on November 15th, 2013 @ 10:02pm CST
It's funny how folks refer to the Robot Mode Cybertron as "Proto Primus", "Pre-Primus", etc. since "The Secret of Cybertron" was still going to have the Quintessons as the TFs' creators while Robot Mode Cybertron was just that, a robot mode for the planet without any god status. It's also funny since Primus' original schtick was just "TF god" instead of "Cybertron's robot mode", when the latter is all that we see here. :P

Not to mention how TSoC would have had Unicron also be a product of the Quintessons, as a WMD created by them to reclaim Cybertron, instead of the origins we later got for the character (monkey scientist creation in the cartoon, evil god in everything else).

Had this thing been greenlit, we would have gotten non-god Unicron vs non-god robot Cybertron, and both simply being trump card pawns in the greater "Quintessons vs. Cybertronians" conflict. ;)

Floro Dery is a legend. The very first batch of cartoon models based on the toys were created by Shohei Kohara, and I believe Dery's first job was to clean these up (removing doors on the back of Jazz, removing wheels on the legs of Optimus Prime, that sort of thing) for animation. Dery went on to create all the other cartoon models (season 2/movie), designs and backgrounds. Including characters like Elita One, Orion Pax etc. Without him, the cartoon and movie would have looked vastly different.

One thing though, I believe the first picture does not show Unicron's severed head, but instead envisions him attacking Cybertron as seen from the Hall of Heroes. He's using the same cloud mist cover as seen in the Lithone piece, and the original Marvel comics movie adaptation ;)

Well, that's just what Dery wrote on his blog entry for that image.
Decepticon Hall of Heroes, shown in BG are the Earth's moon and the severed head of Unicron. The 11"x17" signed print of this poster was recently bought by a Japanese collector for $200. Always check my daughter's Etsy store because other signed Transformers prints will be posted anytime at:

This morning I sat down to watch a certain part from the beginning of TFTM and I ended up watching the whole thing again. "The Transformers" is timeless.


I may have mentioned this before somewhere, but I'd love to see a new hand-drawn animated series, with only original characters: no Prime, no Megatron, no Starscream, no Bumblebee, etc. Not even recycled names.
And all designed by Floro Drey.
Shame it will never happen. Hasbro is too comfortable serving the same bots endlessly in different variations.


Regarding the book Floro is working on, he has piles of artwork from the original show, I hope it doesn't mean that they will have to drastically reduce the size of most of them.

And that would have made a hell of a lot more sense to me than "God and the Devil are robot planets" :P.

Yeah, the concept of Quintesson creation of the Cybertronians is how I view the TF universe. They are machines who eventually evolved AI and thus sentience. They are not representatives or creations of larger machines who are "gods" because that always poses the question of "OK, so where did the "Gods" come from? Who/what created them?"

Cyberpath wrote:Image

A closer examination reveals this to be the combined form of the enigmatic Anibots, who were the prototypical Predacons conceived as an Autobot subgroup instead of Decepticons. So, it isn't actually something that existed in anything official.

The smaller text reveals even more:
The Anibots: Rhioceros (Clump),
Eagle (Shriek), Lion (Simba),
Buffalo (Thump), & Leopard (Pardo)
They combine to become the
"Mechano-Beast". This is the end
of the three versions.
The 1st version looks like a
monster with outer spiketail
structure & transforms a second
time to an alien spaceship.


The 3rd version

five heads.

Thanks to fellow Seibertronians Sabrblade and Cyberpath, we get to take a look at some more concept art by Floro Dery, to add to the image heavy post from a while back. The artist has added the images below to the Etsy store previously mentioned, so take a look below at some never seen before G1 artwork!

Ah, I'd been trying to picture Dragon Beast ever since that TFTM draft surfaced. This mostly has me curious to see Dery's other takes, but maybe he never quite got to a viable combination scheme. Looks like the head is Clump's rhino head, and the wings come from Shriek.

Given his eventual status as Predaking's archenemy, I wonder if Dery had seen the Sky Lynx toy before drawing this. No real evidence of it here, but as he was the first truly dragon-ish TF, and had a spaceship mode as mentioned in the text, I have to wonder if it was an influence.

Or Skylynx was the eventual result of the early concept. Back then, I doubt if the technology would have spawned an actual toy.

Sky Lynx's mold was from the same toyline as Omega Supreme's mold, so it probably already existed back then.

I'm not sure if this one is Transformers related --

Unvorsum The Galactic Robot.jpg

Unvorsum is the poetic Latin word for the Universe. Unvorsum, shown in the first drawing above, is a galactic robot, he's a transmuter in the symbiotic topological realm that's parallel to the physical Universe. He derives his power from an enormous black hole in his body, and through an opening he devours planets, stars and other galaxies. Unvorsum topologically transmutes into a multi-dimensional gigantic galaxy, as shown in the second drawing, that's greater than any known galaxy. Attached to his back is his parasitic mini-sidekick galaxy. Copyright (c) 2013 by Floro Dery.

Signed prints are available at:

http://www.etsy.com/shop/FDartstudio


It reminds me of this piece from an old interview.

TFPH: If you told to create Unicron in your style, do you think he still be a planet? or something else? like a giant space crab perhaps.

Floro Dery: I was not told by anyone when I created the design of Unicron. In fact, the writer's idea is different from mine. However, if I redesign Unicron again, I will make him bigger and like a galaxy.

Yea, those two Cyclonus are still from when Cyclonus was supposed to have a clone army similar to Scourge and his Sweeps.

An update:

There seems so many confusing ideas going around among Transformers fans in the development of the animated Transformers movie. When I was designing the said movie I just designed whatever I wanted, once done I gave them to the studio, and that was that. I had no more control afterward whether the studio will use it or not, but most of the time my designs were used and others were not. My Ultra Magnus design shown here was not used in the movie, so I redesigned and modified it to become Orion Pax that the studio used in the Transformers series. I'll tell my daughter to post the design of Orion Pax in her Etsy store. By the way, to correct the misconception, my Ultra Magnus design was based on an angel and NOT BASED on the toy Powered Convoy, and I had nothing to do with the final Ultra Magnus used in the movie. About the book, my daughter and nephew are working on it slowly, hahaha. It's just a sideline work of my daughter who's working full time as a lawyer.

Hmmm, I assume he did design the animation model based on the actual toy as he also did with all the season two and most of the season one Transformers... right?
