Daily Prime - Unused Off Road Optimus Prime Concept Design for Rise Of The Beasts

There is a method to my madness, as we follow the Rescue Bots Off Road Optimus Primes feature with a look at the unused Transformers: Rise Of The Beasts Off Road Optimus Prime Africa Vehicle design. Apparently, the Oshkosh Defense Medium Tactical Vehicle model was not the only concept design left on the drawing board.

According to the ILM Sr VFX Art Director, Alexander Jaeger, before ROTB was given the Green Light. These designs were the 1st preliminary ideas for the Transformers in Africa with these massive 4WD vehicle models:

Early pre-production designs for the off-road versions of Optimus and Bumblebee. These were the very 1st versions, Before the film was green lit. While Optimus stayed with the semi truck the Bumblebee in the film was very close to this, with smaller wheels and less rally gear. #transformers

My gosh, what a design this was with dual axles front and back and the incredible BULK. It is just awesome, and I cannot image what they would have done to build a production model, IF they could. Interesting enough, the Bumblebee design survived the vetting process, with a similar Off Road design appearing in the final film. Read on to see the unused Off Road Optimus Prime and Bumblebee Africa Vehicle concept design images.
