Unused Bumblebee RID Design by glovestudios Unused Bumblebee RID Design by glovestudios
When the current Ongoing series Robots in Disguise was in development, I went through a lot of design sketches for the central characters, particularly Bumblebee.

Here's one of them, and if it was up to me this is probably pretty close to how I would have chosen his design to look.

The final version I'm using for the book has some elements from this design mixed with his War for Cybertron design.

I wouldn't put too much emphasis on the title, "Cybertronian," I think that was always intended as a working title until they decided how the two Ongoings should be titled.

Just realized, I did this sketch in early April of 2011. Over a year ago now!

Quite a nice design; shame it wasn't used. War For Cybertron seems to be a major influence on RiD so far, with many of the Cons having their game looks.

I prefer this design over the 'tweaked' WfC design used in RiD. For me, it was almost like 'Bee went backwards, from his sleek, slightly more macho earth muscle car, back to a beetle-esque form. I can understand 'Bee having that form before coming to earth, but as he is 'leader' now of the Transformers on Cybertron, I felt like his alt-form and subsequent robot design did not match. Of course, 'Bee has been and always will be the little yellow 'bot but still....

Love it, it looks very much like a cybertronian VW Beetle, and I like how the transformation is close to the original G1 toy; shame this wasn't used.
