TF1 - Drones
So it came clear fairly soon, that with only around 6 characters per faction, the game player would run out of stuff to do pretty quick. The idea came about that the movie characters would stand as either playable characters, or boss enemies, and we needed to create other robots for the player to beat up on as he/she progressed through the levels.
We had seen the animatics for the (at the time) iPod getting a drop of Energon on it, to make it transform into a mindless robot, so we developed a conceit that the Autobot/Decepticon factions could drip some energon on Earth vehicles to create little armies to help in the fight.
So these were just some really quick sharpie sketches (in reality, they're about 1-2 inches high) to get the ball rolling for what level of sophistication these drones would have...
