Despite the mess that was made of the Transformers franchise with the two sequel films to the 2007 feature film, Autobots and Decepticons haven’t lost their appeal and coolness, both on the big screen (with a fourth movie coming out) and in alternative art.
While Robots aren’t usually the best test cases for Steampunk re-invention because their metal exterior doesn’t make them look all that different, an imaginative enough artist makes it work, and Brian Kesinger certainly does in his Victorian take on the best known citizens of Cybertron.
Megatron – Six-Shooter
I’m not sure how they bring him back for Transformers 4, but you can’t have a movie without Megatron, no matter who incoherent his tranformerd version is.
Optimus Prime – Steam Engine
Soundwave – Phonograph
I’m not sure how does the chest open up and shoots out Ravage, Laserbeak, Buzzsaw, Ratbat, Rumble, Frenzy, Slugfest, and Overkill.
Bumblebee – Horseless Carriage
