Top Ten 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon' Concept Art

Check out the best concept illustrations for the Michael Bay film Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011). A lot of artists put in a lot of work, but we can only feature the ones on the Internet.

Because of commercial obligations concept artists can't reveal their work til after a film opens. Now that Transformers: Dark of the Moon has been released the flood gates are open and a ton of cool concept art is being shown. The art is from Joel Chang, Warren Manser and Josh Nizzi.

1. "Megatron in Africa" by Josh Nizzi

Decepticon leader Megatron is a mess in this film, but here we get to see that he still had his dignity.

2. Laserbeak as a Cute Penguin by Warren Manser
I'm still not sure if this was in the movie, but Warren Manser has a design of a cute toy penguin transforming into the assassin bird "Laserbeak." Hilarious.

3. "Breakdown v4a" by Josh Nizzi

To keep people from guessing the evil Soundwave was in the movie they named him "Breakdown." He has Laserbeak on his arm and sports an awesome speaker system. If you look close you can see a major spoiler from the film.

4. "Blitzwing, Colossus" by Joel Chang

Here Shockwave (Blitzwing) is riding another renamed Decepticon named Driller (aka Colossus).

5. Driller attacks a skyscraper by Joel Chang

We never see all of Driller in the film because he's huge! Here we see Driller attacking the N.E.S.T. team in a skyscraper. Notice they're wearing full armor battlesuits. This was in the script, but never made it to the screen.

6. "Flying Optimus" by Warren Manser
In the new film heroic Autobot leader Optimus Prime pulls a trailer with an arsenal of weapons including a flying suit. Here he brings death from the above.

7. Laserbeak Attacks by Warren Manser / B. Procter
Laserbeak takes on a much more fearsome and important role in this film. Here we see him swooping into an attack. Love the stormy background. Very dramatic.

8. Ark Wreckage on the Dark Side of the Moon by Joel Chan
Here's a real dramatic shot of the wreckage of the Autobot "Ark" crash site by Joel Chan. Notice the two astronauts coming up on the right. In 1969, the crew of Apollo 11 lands on the Moon to explore the craft. The colors and looming shadow of the Earth in the background is stunning.

8. "Flash with Dog" by Josh Nizzi
Here we see Leadfoot (aka Flash) one of the "Wreckers," a commando unit that transforms into heavily armed NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Chevrolet Impala stock cars. I really like the idea of him having a robot junkyard dog. He's great.

9. "N.E.S.T. Soldier" by Josh Nizzi
Here we see more of the armor used by the government strike team known as N.E.S.T. It never made it into the film except for a glove and mine. It would have been awesome and made a lot of sense. How do humans fight robots? A robot suit of course.

10. Bumble Bee by Warren Manser
I love the insane amount of detail in these concept drawings. I heard Michael Bay wanted to know what each part did too, so it had to be right.

What do you think of the illustrations? Let me know!
