Today we’ve got a collection of concept art by artist Ben Procter (thanks to the very cool site ConceptArtWorld.com) that feature a ton of characters as well as some of key objects from Michael Bay’s Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.
As you’ll see, Procter’s art is amazing and he’s worked on a ton of major feature films before including the Matrix sequels, Superman Returns, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and many others.
Unfortunately, most characters in the film weren’t given any characterization (most of them weren’t given a name or any dialogue in the movie) and so the concept art for Revenge of the Fallen represents all the characterization we get of many of the Cybertronians featured in the film.
Some of the robot designs in the movie were really cool but some are too extreme. The Alice character in particular had zero purpose in the film other than to take away time from the characters we care more about and make the film make less sense.
Here are the twins in Icecream truck mode. I didn’t dig these characters at all and many didn’t find them funny or cool – they didn’t fit within the movies and took away from what viewers wanted to see. So, of course they were made the stars of the film over the other characters.
Note the awesome symmetrical designs of the faces of The Twins:
Here we have four images of some of the smaller and more obscure looking characters:
The Microwave bot is interesting but I prefer the classic Mountain Dew bot from the first Transformers. Speaking of which, why wasn’t he brought back for the sequel?!
This page of images is dedicated to robots of the sea – take a look:
The stealth boat is pretty cool and I’m surprised they didn’t go with that on in the movie for when they recover Megatron from the bottom of the sea.
That would have been a better battle with airplane and helicopter bots fighting against it and the Kraken type Decepticon attacking the aircraft carrier. Instead, we got scenes of Decepticons crashing through the carrier and other spots around the world and this:
Here are some of the Contructicon-themed concept images that include a different variant of the large Devastator (yet another character wasted in the movie).
I remember seeing the last dude a few times in the movie – good use of the mixer as four shields.
Last but not least, Devastator:
I’m not sure how Optimus gets taller by Jetfire adding his parts but I’m glad Sideswipe ended up looking different in the film. You can check out other cool images from out last Transformers 2 concept art collection
You’ll notice that several of these designs were not introduced in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, so maybe we’ll see them in Transformers 3.
Which ones are your faves?
