    Optimus’ cargo container raingun and armor has to be the coolest thing I’ve ever seen out of the transformer’s universe. Looks likes it was a hell of a fun assignment. “Hey Wes, today, I want you to redesign Optimus Prime.” – his boss.

    “WIP” means “Work in Progress”. They put it on stuff so people know it’s not the finalised product, just something that came up on the way through.

    I do prefer the Lazerbeak designs with the more integrated eyes, didn’t like the baby pidgeon head he had in the movie. The “Steeljaw” concept is pretty neat though.
