FP added a bunch of images to their DeviantArt page: Link

The most interesting things are perhaps exclusive toys that were rejected: Fangry from BM Beast Changer and First Aid from Cybertron Red Alert. Personally, I'm not too disappointed that they never saw production. Nonetheless, I'm glad to get a chance to see them.

I would've totally taken that Red Alert.

Holy crap that transtech Depth Charge is awesome.

Such a shame we'll never get a toy of it.

Agreed. That First Aid concept is swank. Fangry, not so much.

Fangry is one of the greatest things I've ever seen. First Aid is a nice idea until I remember that I hate Cybertron Red Alert.

First Aid is pretty much just Red Alert with the red and blue swapped. Too similar to the original toy for my taste.

Fangry...I don't know. It works pretty well, but it seems like it would take a nasty plot contrivance to explain why he doesn't have a robot mode any more. Maybe he's could hang out with Icebird and friends.

That Fangry is possibly the worst thing ever. I see where the idea comes from, but no. That's almost as bad as the time Jeremy trolled me by saying they showed off a Mindwipe/Skullcruncher hybrid from Mutants Soundwave at Botcon.

I too prefer Fangry to Red Alert, plus its a mold that's not been used half a dozen times.

I had doubts about First Aid since it's making an ambulance out of a figure which is basically already an ambulance, but it's sufficiently different enough to get a pass. Also Walky is crazy and the mold is fine.

Fangry is pretty much a perfect use of the mold. Change nothing.

Walky's guessed right. That was my explanation of the lack of robot mode when I pitched the idea to Pete.

I rule.

And yeah, have to agree I can live without this Fangry. The "winged wolf" mode is pretty great, but once you go past that point and have to shoehorn the rest of him into working by using story explanations... Eh, almost just as soon skip it at that point.

First Aid could have worked decently with a more different vehicle mode deco than what Red Alert had, which we're not seeing here so much since this is a super quick concept work using a Red Alert as a base.
