Transformers 2 Head Design? Update

TFW2005 found a link on 52Toys.com that suggests that the avatar of a banned user is a head design for a Transformer 2 character.
Actoys.net just banned a user who claimed got some design from Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. This guy were looking for business partner at Actoys.net for using these design to produce some unauthorized products before official licensed. But…this user left a mystic avatar.

The last thread this guy left in Actoys.net, is about sell die-cast Chevy Corvette ZR1 model. Looks like this guy is a die-cast car model seller and he claimed this is ZR1’s head.
Until recently the alt mode of "Stinger" was known to be a Corvette, just not sure which one. I and others thought it was the ZR1. It has since been pretty much verified to be a Corvette Centennial. If the person was on the TF2 design team, then they would have known exactly what model car was being. Since clearly they didn't, safe to say this is a fan-made design. Nicely done one though.

S250 on TFW2005 forums has now provided the full body image of the Transformer. Overall a pretty good looking design but I sticking with my fan made theory.

  3. you guys need to start searching the internet for photos and clues coming out of the hasbro production line.
    the toys are probably still being designed, but they will be hitting production line in next few months.

    takes a little time to go from china to the states. all toys have to receive inspection once they arrive. that means production, shipping, inspection, delivery.

    the clues are out there, just need to stop search english sites and using obvious search words like TRANSFORMERS, REVENGE OF THE FALLEN, and other key words.

    come on people...think.

  4. That head looks tight. Ok, so it would be either the Audi or the Corvette from the pics we've seen so far, since it's silver. The blue eyes would indicate an autobot. Tracks anyone?

    ReplyDelete
  5. Yeah, I'm leaning more towards Tracks, because I totally forgot he was a Corvette in G1. I think this is a little more than a coincidence.

  6. Looks similar to a Gundam...

    Yeah, And Ironhide was originally RED, Ratchet and Jazz were originally WHITE and G1 Prime didn't have flames.....

    btw, I didn't write the first post just responding to yours aris

  8. The art for this head is very well-done, probably lifted off of one of the original CG designers conceptual page works for the first movie and just for showing off at this point. I don't think a fan could've done this, it's just too well-made. But I don't think it's legit for TF2 either.

    Everyone knows how much those guys at ILM are hardcore anime fans, so no doubt there's tons of Japanese samurai/anime mecha (Gundam, Macross) influence in the heads and bodies of the robots. That's pretty obvious I think since the show and toys all originated in Japan.

  9. This looks awesome. Hope they make the faces in ROTF more expressive and simple like this one...

  10. everyone is tracks, but i think it would make a great silverstreak.


    maybe the Corvette is called Smokescreen, 4 exhaustpipes that can produce a whole lot of smoke as cover or something. (just giving a thought, corvette should be tracks)

  11. The Corvette is a "Centennial Design Concept".

    Not a Corvette Centennial (as a model name). And in fact, closeups of the car show it having a Stingray badge.

    So just as you incorrectly refer to the Corvette as a "Centennial", so might this dude incorrectly refer to it as a ZR1. It's doesn't disprove this head design or what he was trying to peddle. The guy could have stolen stuff from the legit people for all we know.

  12. Remember that all of the final robots in the movie have actual mechanical eyes with glowing blue or red pupils depending on their faction (Except for Jazz, but I think I even remember seeing images of him with his visor lifted). Whoever this guy is, he has shield eyes, which sort of look like modified versions of the more common Transformer eyes (which we've seen in almost every non-movie-related show or comic yet).

    I can swear, I saw eyes like that from the works of another concept artist who worked on the first TF movie, but his concepts didn't make it into the final film. This might be a concept he came up with for the first movie, but is just now getting released and being paraded as art for the second movie. I'll check IO9 and post back tonight.

  13. seibertron.com has the whole robot now.

    From the waste up it looks up but it is a complete disaster from the waste down with chicken Starscream legs and wheel feet.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Thats one ass-kicking Autobot...Jazz on steroids...

    ReplyDelete
  15. Why do people keep calling them "chicken-legs?" Don't you realize that most creatures in the animal kingdom have legs like that? Not just birds.

    ReplyDelete
  16. It's real - I recognize Ben Procter's style. It's incredibly difficult to emulate, this is definately one of his.

    ReplyDelete
  17. wheels for legs? scissors for hands? wtf?

    i like the head, chestpart and upperlegs, i dont like the arms en feet.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Havent seen too many bipeds with legs like that.

    It is just a crappy design choice. Why Bay wants Transformers with legs from the aliens from "The Arrival" is beyond me.

    And the wheel feet remain stupid.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I like the body design... the feet is pretty cool, since Jazz had wheel feet in the 1st movie, perhaps this chap has relations wif him?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Looks pretty effin' sick. Whoever creates these concept designs for the transformers are AWESOME ARTISTS!!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Reminder for all: they're space alien robots. They don't care what form you think they should take. haha :) :) :)

    I mean, lookit Megatron, he didn't give a flyin' f*ck! Why should the others if they think they're too cool for this school? haha :)

    That said, I actually kinda dig this concept design, but I guess time will tell how much of the concept actually gets put into the real production design. I'm guessing very little or not at all (if it indeed is just fan-made inspiration from Ben himself). Who knows.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Thats probably Wheeljack

    ReplyDelete
  23. Thats propably ANYONE... Could you at least share witch us, why do you think it is Wheeljack?

    ReplyDelete
  24. that design is much more like Ben Procter designs, so i bet that is not a complete concept design. Don't worry people we will probably see the finished design maybe late November.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I would like to state that beleive the so-called "fan-made" concept to be legitimate. Here are the reasons why-
    1. his shoulders are comprised of THE REAR END OF THE CENTENNIAL, NOT THE ZR1(if you don't beleive me, look it up)
    2.the DOOR ON HIS ARM HAS THE DEPRESSION TAT MARKS THE AIR VENT ON THE CENTENNIAL, WHICH IS NOT SEEN ON THE ZR1!

    NOTE: even though it's a centennial does not mean that it's absolutely confirmed real.

    ReplyDelete
  26. That is not a fan-art.Toy news confirmed it.

    ReplyDelete
  27. My first post so please go easy!
    The wheels & scissor-things may be retractable like Prime's sword and Bumblebee's battle-mask. (I hope that's the case.)
    Just my 2 cents.

    ReplyDelete
  28. This robot is 80% Blurr . Just see the similarities between this concept and the animated Blurr toy .

    ReplyDelete
  29. ..... And so it is revealed the the Vette is Sideswipe.

    ReplyDelete
  30. dude peoples the silver corvette is sideswipe look on tformers.com and it will say

    ReplyDelete
  31. well, they change color, transformation, and head design. the closest to g1 were Bumblebee and Optimus. So it makes sense that it's Sideswipe. But where's Sunstreaker?

    ReplyDelete
  32. Think about it. Sunstreaker has appeared only in Transformer G1 and War Within comic trilogy. Sideswipe has appeared in Transformers: Armada. Though this live-action continuity could be nearly similar than G1, Sunstreaker won't maybe appear in this movie.

    ReplyDelete
  33. best transformers design ever made. i hope they dont change it much and it will look nearly the same in live action.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Its Sideswipe and it's been confirmed
