Would have looked awesome back in the day when movies and television were in black and white.

That thing doesn't even look like a T-Rex.

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

:CON:

After our first round of Age of Extinction concept art from Ken Christiansen, he has posted additional art on his Facebook page featuring Grimlock and Lockdown.

Ken will also be appearing at Capitol City Comic Con in Austin, Tx this coming weekend where you can pick his brain about initial design choices for Grimlock and Lockdown. You can see the announcement on his blog.

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.

Nice nod to Animated Lockdown's poncho.

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.

[quote]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.[/quote]

[quote]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.[/quote]

[quote]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".[/quote]

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.
