Check This Out: Transformers Concept Art - Aircraft Carrier That Never Was
Sometimes I come across things so damn cool that I just can't pass them up. Today is one of those days. Concept artist Tim Flattery recently posted a few examples of his work from Transformers on his official website. Let me tell you that this work is so beautiful that I'm considering ordering it in high resolution and framing it above my bed to stare at all night long. No not really, that's just a joke, but I might considering something like that. Realistically this concept art kicks some serious ass and the best part is two of them feature the rumored aircraft carrier transformer that never saw the light of day. Apparently the idea of this robot was mentioned by Michael Bay last year as potentially showing up in a sequel, but was denied recently by producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura. We can still dream…
A few examples of Flattery's work can be seen below. A total of 15 images can be found on his website.
Last year when Bay first mentioned that an aircraft carrier transformer was one that he wanted to include in the film, rumors quickly spread saying that the cost was too high to make it happen for the first one, but that it might show up in a sequel. After you look at this concept art you might understand how expensive that would be and now, of course, it's not going to show up in the sequel either. But don't fear, I'm sure we're going to see a plethora of other equally awesome robots like Jetfire the SR-71 Blackbird. Doesn't this make you even more excited for the Revenge of the Fallen next summer?
