It still baffles me that Two-Headed Shockwave was INTENTIONAL, and not just a quick reuse of animation models.

Also, I like how Hound apparently used to be just a thin army guy with a helmet, but someone said "that's too boring, make him fat with a beard".

Ha! I liked this too... I wondered if they had designed Hound before getting John Goodman to voice him, and then thought,"Whoa, this little guy doesn't work with John Goodman's voice."

I thought it was a pretty amazing change from the concepts to execution.

Tfw2005 also has some exclusive concept art if you guys want to check that out.




Any other sites that paramount might have gave concept art to?

I think the Hound we got is much better then in that concept especially the fact that his does not work without that beard.

I did like his performance, since he seemed to be one of the few having fun with it. I probably would have re-branded him as Kup (since it's a better match for the character) and had some lines redone, but what do I know about the labyrinthine industry of a high-profile film adaptation?

I'd be surprised if they didn't retool (again) Dispensor to make the Oreo-bot.

I kind of wonder if the one with the hailfire missile pods was supposed to be Galvatron, since they have similar heads? He'd make a pretty good abstract Armada Demolishor, though.

the human made con has a very close resemblance to starscream. early cyclonus perhaps?

Hopefully not. If it is then they've drastically missed the major details of what Cyclonus looks like, which they already did with Galvatron.

If anything, he looks like Megatron on an abstract Armada Demolishor body.

Looks like you could just take any Movie voyager SS, add some cylinders and Hailfire's missile pods, take off the wings and paint the whole thing silver.

Where have you been for 7 years?
Sideswipe looks nothing like g1 sideswipe
Ironhide looks nothing like G1 ironhide
Skids
Megatron, all forms
Hound. The only thing g1 hound and movie hound have in common is green.
And the dude with the cannons for arms has a barricade face.

I've been right there the whole time, and never liked the designs. I understand artistic license, but these are supposed to be adaptations of characters we know. If the Avengers can look like the Avengers, why can't the Transformers look like the Transformers.

But really, appearance is only a superficial complaint I can level. A design change could be fine if they could make the characters their own with interesting interpretations, but they are mostly just stilted backdrops. All the names are there, they just don't mean anything.

To be frank, I'd be fine with them even referencing ARMADA Cyclonus's design, If only to know that someone recognized the history of the brand and the unique look of it's characters.

If you squint hard enough, Galvatron's helmet-thing sorta looks like an abstract version of G1 Megatron's buckethead. It's even more noticable on that Heavy Weapons guy, whoever he was supposed to be.

He does share a lot of design cues; the head, the cables, being primarily silver with blue and gold details, little to no apparent vehicle kibble (he's got guns, but he might as well not have an alternate form). Could be an early Galvatron, or a different bot that got repurposed as him, or even perhaps all the KSI bots would've been far more homogenous...

That or Starscream's weird EVA head.

It's like there's some designer who, in spite of everyone else, is trying to subtly acknowledge the classic designs of the characters and their history.

He also has movie Screamer's big gorilla gunpod arms. He might have been intended as Screamer reborn as, oh I don't know, Cyclonus or Scourge before it got scrapped.

Lockdown's renders are actually the coolest for me. He shows a surprising amount of car parts in robot mode, at least from the back view. I noticed the red taillights in his legs in the movie, but didn't see the air intakes and headlamps on his back, nor the Lamborghini logo on his robo-behind. :lol:

I don't remember this "Manmade Bot Heaby Armament", did someone may remind me a scene with it?
