I don't know why people are upset, i swear some just live to be miserable. Prime looks BADASS, like a butt kicking, menacing warrior! I CAN'T WAIT for the movie, and LOVED the first one, the second was meeeh, and I like Dark of the Moon alot. Fanboys need to calm down and realize this is a movie about giant, robotic, sentient, robots fighting a war.... :michaelbay:

Actually, I'm more troubled by Bumblebee's look. I just don't like it. It looks like they tried to replicate the Prime design in reality and it just doesn't work.

As for Optimus...that's a LOT of blue. O_o ...a lot.

He feels like a random, 1980's, G1 background Cybertronian design. (Yeah, you guys see it, too.) ILM's going to have to REALLY cheat the transformation this time. You can't see anything except the wheel fenders on his ankles, that's it.

I will give that crapfest of a figure one thing...it has more red on it.

"Oh boo hoo, it doesn't look the way I want it, so I'm going to complain, just like I was most likely going to do already"... :roll: anyway, I happen to like Optimus design granted, how a bot looks onscreen compared to some renders can be very different. He is shockingly primarily blue this time around. (well, more blue than he was in the previous films.) And what's wrong with OPtimus having a samurai-ish look to him? Nothing to be honest in my opinion. As for "Grimlock", no comment till I at least see more of the body. And I need to see Bumblebee in full color before I'm totally ready for a comment as well.

You know what? I kinda dig this Prime design It's only a slightly different silhouette compared to the other movies and most of us warmed up to that. But of course, CHANGE BAD, right?
The only design changes I would make to Prime would be the shoulders, slightly broauder and an added splash of red. I like the knight theme they're going for this time around. Very valiant. Like Prime.

Optimus having less red is bad. Even the other Transformers movies Optimus has more red than this new "person." Personally I think it shows less of Optimus Prime. :G2BOT:

Everything seems to have a Transformers Prime cartoon feel to me...watch Hound have a Bulkhead type personality in the movie...

I'm crossing my fingers AOE DIonbot figures might be able to fit in with my classics collection...if the designs are Pime influenced there is a chance.

Hmm..... Definitely a samurai theme to that design. A strange route to go in my opinion. Takara going that route? Yeah sure. Hasbro and Bay? Would never have guessed that one.

But hey, we're looking at a T-rex. So that's a start. :-?

In as much as I miss the red, I'm definitely digging the new Samurai Optimus design.

'Bee, eh, I can take or leave it. I don't think it's bad necessarily, it just doesn't wow me.

Grimlock...well, crap, it's just a dino head. I'll hold out for a full body shot in its 'final' colors before making any judgements.

I have to say, the new Optimus Model here is kinda givin' me a vibe of those robots from Pacific Rim, you know, the Jaegers.

And that is not a bad thing.

Prime seems a little smoother than his previous model. I like this better than the twisted metal look of some of the older models.

Weapon: Black Magic
Ah just more boringness. It is coherant in that it seems to have some simulated flatter surfaces rather than being all valleys and peaks and hanging off armour/kibble, but it definitely isn't an Optimus Prime, as I feel it deviates WAY too much from what makes Optimus identifiable on the battlefield. Strangely enough I could more quickly assume Fire Convoy was optimus if I saw him on some battlefield on screen, but this just constantly reminds me of the people handling the subect matter, and how little they seem to care about the roots, and effectively bringing them into modern film in a respectable way. Now yah, this has already turned into a rant, and the roots were fully animated commercials, but theres no reason it has to forever be doomed to remain at that level (excluding comics), or get even worse. Here come the angry replies.

Anyway, Grimlock looks cool. The rest is ....zzZZZ

The day that I lost you
He lost all his glitter the day you said, no
And his silver turned to blue
Like him, I am doubtful that your love is true
But if you decide to call on me

I think by the way they did the new CG its gonna be very difficult to make accurate toys. I like the new look of them, is just a matter of time for we getting use with,a lot of fans will complaining but we need to understand that things move away. For me Prime looks bad ass , bulk and much more sleek.
I wanna see the corvette, the bugatti and the others. :BOT:

If they manage, somehow to do a better toy , that those one we have been seen, so it's going to look awesome (look at the forcefield shield ). But if not, don't know if I will keeping buying transformers movie toys. And I think, the same for the others characters ( autobots ), by the wee bit we can see of Bee, it's gonna be hard to them make toys accuracy.
But I have a theory, that the Decepticons , at this time will be really wicked.
We already know, its going to be, a lot of decepticons cars, but I really hope, there was a lot of jets, cybertronian spaceships altmodes. :CON:
And all hail GALVATRON! :BOWDOWN:

Optimus Prime has been red ever since G1. It feels weird that he has to have more blue than red. Like I said before, it lacks himself. It's like he's the new Ultra Magnus. :SICK:
