*UPDATED* More TFA concept sketch spoilers

Posted by:

S250 had posted several more Transformers Animated concept sketches over at TFW2005.

These sketches are of several characters (old and new), as well as some other odds and ends. But be warned that some of them may be pretty spoilerific and probably shouldn't be viewed at if one does not want ot be spoiled. So if you'd rather not be spoiled, then I'd suggest that you stop reading this page and turn back now...

Ah, slag, go ahead and spoiler yourself. :D

The images are as follows:

* Cyclonus' transformation
* A new bot named Highbrow
* A lab making Omega Supreme-like bots (Guardian Robots? Omega Sentinels?)
* Arcee's head hooked up to several cables
* A rather more grown-up Sari
* Ultra Magnus severely damaged (maybe dead?)
* A Space Bridge planetoid looking not too dissimilar to The Planet of Junk
* Another new bot named Mainframe
* A random Autobot technician
* A man
* A boy
* A fat guy
* And another man.


The unnamed technician seems to be based of the Action Master Kickoff. And, there was one more image that wouldn't show, but has been mirrored and then uploaded here. It is a size chart of Optimus, Bumblebee, Brawn, Beachcomber, Spittor, Cyclonus, Blackout, Megatron, Lugnut, and Strika.

Also, Acree's head is the key to the Omega bots, and Shockwave did that to Ultra Magnus.

The Man looks like Prime
the boy looks like bumblebee
the fat guy looks like bulkhead
the old guy looks like Rachet pretender shells, but why no Prowl

Arcee's head is similar to on of the covers for Spotlight Arcee

oh Ultra Magnus

Season 3 is seriously gonna be awesome! Also great to see the Only Human story in Animated.

I like it, I'm really enthusiastic about the upcoming (final?) season. I agree Agent X, the last four humans look an awful lot like our Autobot core cast. Could be pretenders, could be they get their minds transplanted into human bodies (It happened to Rodimus and Co. back in the day)or some new reason we've not thought of yet. Could be something happened to Prowl, could be he dodged the bullet.

But Cyclonus looks awesome.

i think the first one is prime,the second one is bumblebbe,third is bulkhead,and last is rachet.i hope ultra magnas dies instead of prowl cuz prowl is way cooler

maybe its like the old cartoon when ultra magnus n rodimus arcees n i think springer get turned into humans or pretender shells would be cool as well

well I hope something cool happens after animated if it ends. I would like to re-do g1 like most comics have after a few years. Re-tell the origin. I always thought Ultra Magnus was a bit like "Lt. commander" I think he gets blown up, Rodimus becomes magnus, and UM gets rebuilt and goes by his real name, Roadbuster. Cool toy, except for the short arm reach problem. A kitbash fix and he'd be masterpiece cool...
The human thing is probably a one-off- they obviously resemble the autobots but I doubt they're pretenders. Might be a good story line from one episode or something creative, even funny- maybe those guys play the Transformers in a 'movie' I could see it being something funny, but more likely its our guys in human bodies for some reason temporarily.

These humans obviously resemble the faces of some Autobots. I wonder if they're going to do an episode similar to the G1 episode where Springer, Arcee, Ultra Magnus, and Rodimus Prime took human form for awhile.

I'm guessing Magnus will be damaged and repaired to the Roadbuster look.

Don't have any comments for everything else.

Surpprised no one's mentioned Highbrow, Mainframe, or even the upgraded Sari.

I think we've been so focused on the story possiblities for an "Only Human" revamp that we've kinda over looked the other stuff here. Mind you, this isn't the first time Ultra Magnus has been blown up (TF:The Movie), but he got better.

The upgraded Sari makes me think we're going to skip about two or three years of story telling between Season 2 and Season 3, that or Sari uses the key on herself to "grow up". She's bound to have a few daddy issues in the new season.

Mainframe, Highbrow, and the non-descript Autobot Technician probably work in or oversee the lab building the Guaridan robots.

As far as the space bridge chunk of planetoid, that may be where Megatron and Starscream ended up. I mean, does the space bridge just open up anywhere, or does there need to be a second space bridge as a recieving point?

Then there's Arcee's opened up head. This could be Highbrow and Mainframe trying to repair the damage done by Ratchet's EMP generator when it wiped out her mind. That or it could make her more confused then ever depending on what they are pumping in and taking out.

Sufficet to say, if Season 3 is in fact the ending season, then it should prove to be one of the best story telling times in TF history.

And, yay, Cyclonus!

When does the new animated season start???? I'm sooo looking forward to it!! I agree, Cyclonus looks awesome!!!
Tramp said,  - 2009-02-19 13:06:48
Interesting images. As far as Sari goes, I'm more inclined to believe that a few years are going to pass between Season two and Season three allowing her to grow into a teenager.

"Spring 2009"... that's all we know.
Decepticon1 said,  - 2009-02-19 16:45:48
How can she grow up the way season 2 ended it looks like she is a robot???? WHAT IS GOING ON????
Jumpercliff said,  - 2009-02-19 17:44:59
I'd say that when Tara Strong voices her in Season 3, she'll sound more like Batgirl in The New Batman Adventures.
