Sweet Transformers Concept Art

Published 6 years ago by , Updated September 26th, 2009 at 11:28 pm,

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?

  1. Rob
    the Alice character had the same purpose as every other decepticon – to get the information from Sam. How hard is that to understand?

  2. @ MCat
    Why defend a character that complicated a story as bad as the one in TF2? It was never explaiained why or how transformers can look like humans. If the point was information why didnt the decepticons replace people sam already knew or send a sam lookalike after megan fox’s character? Eh…whatever, movie still made a trillion dollars, and now Bay knows you can put suger on sh*! call it gold and people will buy it up.

    • Some Transformers, called Pretenders, can turn into a planet’s organic lifeforms and not necessarily vehicles. Alice’s character was a Pretender and paying homage to the G1 continuity.

  3. why does the concept art always look cooler then what they actually use in film? x-men origins wolverine ,and the other x-films had sentinels,beak,angel,and deadpool that looked killer awesome. i wish they would use that in the films.

  4. PS. I really like the concept art for the fallen that looks alot like the decepticon insignia. Noticed the concept of the twins didnt have a gold tooth, whose idea was it to add that? Huh, I wonder….BAYSPLOSIONS!!!!!

  5. I defend movies I liked even if it was crap. Does that make sense?

  6. If you read the note on the optimus concept you see it says the truck trailer becomes the powerup armor, weird cause we’ve never saw him with a trailer in the movie. But yeah he does become taller because the head and feet and alot of other parts are still the same size, so its not a larger scale.

  7. Unfortunately for us, a lot of the concept art was tweaked for Bay’s pur

  8. “Corny” is probably the best word to descrbe what Bay has done with the TF franchise because “disappintment” just doesn’t capture it all. Robots with sharp teeth, buck teeth, beards, canes, etc is just not what I had imagined and it’s plain ridiculous. They look skinny, weak, and frail unlike the solid and studly Japanese looking robots like the originals. Stick to the source material for a change, Bay. You’ve completely removed the look and feel of the TFs. Without Peter Cullen’s voice, I wouldn’t know what I was watching. Bay will F up the Dinobots like he did Devastator and the rest if the troops.

  9. Damn! I wander who chooses what to put in. It always seems with these tf concepts that the coolest are never in the movie. Maybe these artists should direct the third one. Any people want more tf art like this, look uo Josh Nizzi. Amazing cool art like this stuff.

  10. Art doesn’t translate to movies or it would like cartoon.

    We DID source and link you at the end of the article, but in deference to your very cool site I’ve added a shout and link in the opening paragraph as well.


  12. i think this movie was just amazing.. nd u guys shud really cut bay some slack.. so he didnt stick to the original script and TFs.. that’s the beauty of it… to copy something is not creativity,,, its when u produce something of ur own.. people need brains for that..
    liked the construction TFs.. pretty cool..!
