Movie Bumblebee Battle Mode by timshinn73 Movie Bumblebee Battle Mode by timshinn73
OK, here's the Battle Mode of my Bumblebee head.

This time I decided to start with 2 designs in mind. I'm not totally into the whole "battle mode" thing yet, but I haven't seen the official finished product, so we'll see. Anyway, it seemed natural to do a battle mode for BB because the G1 toy looked a lot different than in the cartoon (which, of course most of the TFs did). So, G1 toy BB becomes... BUMBLEBEE BATTLE MODE! I think I like this one the best.

I'm curious to hear what you think. I value any thoughts you'd like to share. Thanks for taking a look!

Photoshop. About 4 hrs

Well done. But I still don't get this hate for the movie from so-called fans.

I was there since the beginning yet I have no problems with the look. Its an alternate universe. Things are expected to be different in them. Not to mention almost no movie based on a given property makes it to the screen without notable departures from the source. I accpeted things would turn out like this from the green light. Saved me loads of woe when I accpeted those facts of life

Prefer G1? Fine. DVDs are available for purchase and nothing the big bad Bay can do will ever take those away fro you

Obviously he did a good job due to the high box ofice yields. Why cater to a handfull of nitpicky fanboys who cant think outside the box when theres greater money to be made marketing to relative agnostics to the property and making sure theres a product EVERYONE can get in on the ground level with? My 15 year-old protege loved it and didnt see an ep of the cartoon. More peple like her than us old-timers Im afraid and we need to accept that.

Honestly I say Bay gets way too much undeserved hate. Ill buy him a beer and give him a hearty slap on the back for a job well done. TF has had a dozen different continuities based on US, UK and Japanese comics and animation. I dont see what one more with a different take is going to hurt.

I am just in awe of how cool these turned out... If I didn't know any better, I'd say you were one of the official designers working on the movie! These are insane!

The old G1 toy BB did look a lot like Prime and Soundwave.

Yeahh I remember the Bumblebee toy looking nothing like the cartoon.

It's a sweet concept man. Reminds me of what Dreamwave did with Bumblebee in Battle Mode
