When I asked Josh about the designs he said. "The Production Designer François Audouy wanted a sleek and high tech design that was functional as well. I drew inspiration from concept cars and motorcycles, the comic designs, a bit of anime mechs and of course samurai armor. It was a fun design to work on – I hope they make a cool figure of it!"
Here's what it looked like in the film.
Now, here's the concept art.
By the way, here's the very uncool action figure Hasbro put out.
