Thanks to fellow Seibetron.com user Cyberpath and their eagle eyes, we have a couple more updates from Floro Dery's wonderful archives of concept art for the Transformers, being sold as prints in an Etsy store. Today's update brings us Quintesson concepts and Mini Unicron/the Moon of Unicron. Check them out below, with extra descriptions thanks to Cyberpath!


Shown on the left side is the 1st version of Quintesson, and on the right side is the final version.

Face 1: I used a Pharaoh skull-like face to suggest kingly authority and death.

Face 2: I used a fat face with a sun-like-rays headgear to suggest a happy and smiling face.

Face 3: Here I used the face of evil (devil-like) to suggest an angry face.

Face 4: I used a stern and barbarian face to suggest a grimacing face.

Face 5: And here I used an old woman-like face to suggest a suspicious face.

i cant help saying this but mini unicron looks like a Frankenstein bug because its body is like an insect and its head is unicron's robot mode in the movie. but its the concept of him and i'm glad that unicron is isn't disgusting when compared to this!! :D

but i love the quintessons concepts and lilithon? i dunno. must be their concept of the citizens.

I love how Dery colors everything! Not remotely evocative of how they'd appear on screen, but it sure is pretty.

Unicron having a Fly-Mini-Me is just bizarre.

Mini-Unicron is terrifying. Have to wonder if that was some early inspiration into having Minicons be Unicron dandruff + his Armada toy's pack-in being a tiny moon guy.

The toy prototype had a moon as well. It was a light that could shine on Unicron's surface. I think that may have been the inspiration for the Armada minicon.

oops my bad! 8-} but i wished we got the humanoid Quintessons in the movie rather than having just floating heads with seven different faces and personalities.

In that early script draft that hit the web via Disciples of Boltax in 2010, they were actually both. They started out humanoid, but with robes concealing most of their bodies so that you only saw the face that was rotated forward at the time, using the death mask only when ordering an execution/announcing a verdict. Then, when attacked by the Dinobots, they escaped by blasting their "heads" off of what were revealed to be just puppet bodies, their actual form indeed being the most familiar one.

So, I think that's what this humanoid version is supposed to represent, rather than a different type of Quint with a different function. (Has someone been able to decipher all of that text?) Considering the scale inconsistencies the Quints suffered in the cartoon, I wonder just how big the humanoid puppet form was supposed to be; could be anywhere from standard TF to gestalt size.

Update on the book:

My nephew, Kuest, is working during his spare time preparing that book. My daughter is just waiting for him so that she can edit it. There are simply many information needed to be incorporated in every design, and there are hundreds of designs.

Always awesome artwork from Floro.
i just wish the Transformers prints weren't out of my wallet size.
Excellent work regardless.

I wished some Japanese publishing company would bank roll a F.Dery Transformers art compilation the way they do for artists like Ni theta, Satoshi U, Kei Komori etc.

This would surely sell (just don't make it hardbound)

Unicron's horns look so big and fat that they look less like devil horns and more like Wolverine's hairdo. :P

And what's with the "sliding into homeplate" pose? :P

Fellow Seibertronian Cyberpath keeps an eye on the activities of concept artist Floro Dery, the mind and hands behind several setting of the original Transformers: The Movie (1986). The latest print offered is the artist's recent rendition of the Chaos Bringer, Unicron (not the actual art used for the movie) - check it out below, and head here to purchase this wonderful piece of art!

Goddamn that is awesome, we need that artbook to finally come out, the prints while incredible, are just too far out of my price range.

But daaaayum, look at all the stuff that's going on in there, sadly the digital preview is too small to makeout everything so it looks a bit like a mess, but what you can makeout is amazing.

Edit:
So reading the description, this isn't actual concept art from the movie, but seems to be something he did last year.

Yeah, I edited the story to have that be clearer.

Whilst I'm aware of Floro Dery's... eccentricities... for me, Dery IS Transformers. Whilst he only fully did the character models in-full from series 2, he had a part in series 1, helping bridge what I would call the East\West design bridge. His contribution to Transformers:The Movie changed our favorite robots forever and his design cues live on even today.

Wish I could afford a print :(

He doesn't strike me as eccentric to be honest. At least no more than your average artist. He's very imaginative. Always interesting to read where he draws inspiration from.

It's amazing how Floro's new work looks good as as ever.
