Flare-Up Bike, Props, Concept Art and More

Sean Haworth, Visual Effects Art Director for Transformers and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, has released some of his art on his website. He helped design some vehicles, props and sets used in the movie. His other work includes Tron Legacy, Eagle Eye, The Island and more. Probably the most interesting new bits is a good look at Flare-Up (or Elita-1), the last of the three motorcycles created for ROTF yet rarely seen (see below).

Rather then displayed it by movie, he has it separated by categories. Set Design shows of a detailed view of the Ice Cream Truck Twins, Ratchet and NEST Hummer. The Conceptional section shows off the improvements to Bumblebee's vehicle and three CGI views of the NEST Hummer. Art Direction shows a lot of set design work he helped create for the first movie. The Transportation section is photos of the various Transformers he helped design. The Props is all Transformers with look at the Bumblebee robot prop, the zapper cage from the first film, Autobot logos and Frenzy's prop head. The final section, Study Models, does not include Transformers work, but shows some model sets put together to help plan shots and the like.

To view his entire available work click here for the Portfolio section of his website. Thanks to Scorpio for the link.

  2. I agree with Scorpio, bad design. I think the artist by that point were just tired of doing combiners. Still, would've liked to have seen more of the arcee in the movie. Oh well.

    On a side note, Transformers has made $832 million worldwide. It will probably come out of the theaters soon, but man, what a BLOCKBUSTER!

    Thanks for agreeing with me :)
    It really sucks that only the one Bike Bot remains alive.

  4. I agree too, i think they couldn't get the combiner right so they left it out, it seems even Bay has his limits :)

  5. Thanks. I suppose that is why they left out the combined form. Hopefully they fix Chromia`s design for TF3

  9. Does anyone else agree with mr on this?: In Transformers 3 michael Bay is going to say that Chromia died for somereason, or just not have her in the film at all, even though she cowarded behind a wall

  10. Then again Bay will probaby do that with most of the charecters as Ironhide, Bumblebee, Ratchet and Sideswipe along with others were not scene after the explosions near the end (Unless there was an extended IMAX Scene i missed) So all or some of those could be counted as Dead!
