He also did the robot concept art for the ROTF and first movie games on the consoles (and Deadend for ROTF Psp)



I would love for him to make some more Movie style concept art because i loved his designs to pieces mostly his Combaticons and Stunticons.

I'm positive I saw this exact Mirage in an episode of Transformers: Legends a week or two ago. Only difference there was that half of the body was a wire-frame type thing (like he was in the middle of his turning invisible gimmick). Seriously, the only reason I still have that game on my phone is to check out the new artwork every week, they should release a book collecting it all, some of it is amazing!

*Edit: I just double-checked, this is very, very similar but not the same as the Transformers: Legends pic I was thinking of.

A very brief update from TFCon Chicago, concerning superstar IDW Transformers artist Alex Milne. Unfortunately, Milne has had to cancel his attendance at the event due to personal reasons, as can be seen in the mirrored tweets below. The show will still be running according to its schedule, though, and make sure to pop by the Seibertron.com store while you're there as well!
