The lights are on
The developers behind Transformers: War For Cybertron have an interesting task when it comes to their game's creation. Fans of the cartoon have a very specific view of how the robots in disguise look, but various iterations throughout the years have tweaked their image substantially. Many were irked by the Micheal Bay-ified insect-like versions of the Autobots and Decepticons in the recent live action films, as they strayed too far from the G1 originals. High Moon Studios is approaching this task by putting a modern polish on a look that still brings back memories of the cartoon that launched the series into pop culture history.Take a look below at Senior Concept Artist Billy King as he details the most iconic of the Transformers - Optimus Prime.

Optimus Prime rocks!! One of my fav autobots.
You said it Grimmrock!
He is so definetly awesome!
Sweet, I always love time lapse art.
Hope this game lives up to all the hype.
It would be a shame to see this game flop, so I'm hoping that it is very successful, because this game is looking awesome!
i like the arm cannon they gave optimus
Optimus looks cool as ever
now that was awsome now that is how you make robots it was cool how they make them.
I like the redesigned model.
That is just pure talent there.
I love the detail.
I really like the new look for his robot form, but I'm not so sure I like the rounded-out top his truck form has. It looks kinda awkward.
The game sounds awesome
i want that drawing pad!
great timelapse... but the music is a bit overkill no?
plus i wish i had that pad the things i could do with it....actually i cant do much even with the tech :P
my fave autobot man!
Concept art is one of the best jobs a man can ever have. Too bad you have to be a prodigy or your getting cut.
