Transformers Dark of the Moon Concept Art by Wesley Burt


With the release of Transformers Dark of the Moon, the literal dam of concept art has broken and washed down upon the Internet. We are drowning in concept art right now – and like you, we’re loving every gasping breath of it!

We’re pleased to bring you some concept art done by Wesley Burt (with thanks to Concept Art World), who worked alongside Michael Bay and Nigel Phelps to help create some of the really amazing things seen in the latest installment from Paramount. You’ll see plenty of things you recognize (Igor!), some things that didn’t make the cut (some cool Optimus Prime trailer battle-station modes), and some names for characters that obviously were changed (“Steeljaw”?).

What are you waiting for? Click the story title to check out all the images!

    Concept Artist and Illustrator Wesley Burt has shared some concept art he developed for Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Wesley worked on a number of different things throughout the pre-production phase of the film, focusing on generating early visual ideas with the direction of Michael Bay and production designer Nigel Phelps. The concept art shows a variety of ideas, different directions, and solutions that were experimented with for elements of the story that were coming together at the same time.

    Oh wow, those Wheeljack concepts are pretty fun! Like how the hood of a convertible turns into a lab coat!

    Not a fan of most trailer concepts, but the one where his entire truck+trailer turns into a giant Stealth Force tank is PURE win!

    Optimus Prime: I'm in a chair, takin' your faces

    The old art for driller looks like its face is made out of tires.

    I think I like those 'Steeljaw' concepts better than how Q turned out in the film.

    And Undermine is cool. He's like a decepticon that refuses to die, despite being decapitated. I thought the character looked like a bit of a mutated freak, but I imagine he was once a mighty warrior.

    This must be why Optimus rips the faces apart.

    The Wheeljack concepts are great! Just like Prime holding a BFG and his "Beast Wars Megatron" mode. XD that one would be sick to see on-screen.
    thank you so much for posting these!

    That full trailer Stealth Force for Prime is amazing, I would love to see that in a future video game or comic.
