Why did Hasbro have to go and nix Cyberverse?


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 liked more this version of Grimlock (the first image) than the "dragon-thing" of the movie.
Remember me a Jurassic Park Robot. Very, very cool.

How many "Slashs" we have???? :shock:

Doesn't look all that much different here, aside from the lack of Devil horns, since the movie version has a very distinct T-Rex-shaped snout.

Interesting; the initial designs for Grimlock and Scorn's dino-modes were remarkable close in design to their living counterparts (not to mention less spikey). I'm guessing Slash got dropped from the film, because I don't recall any robo-raptors running around during the Dinobots' scenes.

Like they don't belong on the same shelf, probably. The AoE Construct-Bots are somewhat different aesthetically from the other AoE toys, probably out of necessity.

It's true, but they add things in him to show that he is "very dangerous": horns, hundreds of fangs, claws, a bigger mouth, bigger tooth, etc (As a robot Tyrannosaurus was not dangerous enough...) and, in my opinion, is exaggerated... so exaggerated that maybe will make him be ridiculous.
I hope no.

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.

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.

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.

Maybe it's the art style, or maybe it's that small, rounded gorillacons make me think of those Decepticlones that could neutralize your weapons and use wrestling moves on you in the PS2 Armada game, but these last three scream "video game" more than "movie". So do the Op, Bee, and Lockdown at the start of the thread.

They naturally had to bounce a lot of ideas off the wall before finding what worked for AofE, but some of these designs should be put to good use elsewhere.

I can't tell what it is even with the description and it looks like something from a Terminator rip-off than a Transformers movie. Perhaps I was a bit harsh in my critique, but it looks terrible to me.

I'm probably one of the few that actually likes the Hritz concept art bots, but even in the more diverse movie continuity, they look like anything but TF's. They belong morein an anime or a scifi FPS game.

The Transformers: Age of Extinction concept art continues to roll out! This morning we have images from artist Josh Nizzi's website that give us his take on several of the characters from the film plus a few that didn't end up on screen. These include three very impressive looking Cybertronian Knights. We also get a closer look at many of the weapons seen in the film. We've mirrored a selection of his images below, many more can be viewed by clicking here.

Those are some pretty cool designs. I don't know why, but I've always been fond of the nameless generic characters, like the various background characters from Energon, and the awesome 2-headed Shockwave shown here. I actually find the way they take the existing models and mix-and-match them into new designs pretty creative.

Damn, I can't wait to see the movie now.

Like last time, my favorites are the background generics. *ponders how to make Kreons of Two Head and the guy with whips*
Wasn't the whip bot originally just random art of his? I feel like I've seen it before...

The "creator hand" is very cool.

Lockdown seems vaguely Megatron-esque, with that top crest part and those sideburn things.

The Knights are pretty boring, they're just... knights.
And roundabout confirmation that Silver Knight Optimus was supposed to be an actual thing.

i like the knight designs. i actually wouldve liked these designs as the actual primes rather than the odd looking ones we already have. i mean that black knight design just screams "the fallen"

If Hasbro was smart, they'd release a retool of DOTM Shockwave with the two heads. Easy new figure.
