If you haven't seen it here is a pic. I am not a fan and I think it should be changed. What do you guys think?

I find the new truck-mode interesting. Before I think anything else I'd have to see the robot-mode and see the truck in action.
Other than that: I hope the toy isn't gonna be screwed up.

Not really subtle for being "robots in disguise" but then again they never really were. I just think the cowl hood is too much.

Bayformers Prime don't deserve to live that long. He should be dead long ago and pass lidership to some more majestic Autobot. Unfortunetly we all know this is impossible.

I like it. I think it breaks up the boredom of not only having the same Prime for another movie, but also, I find Bay Prime's truck mode boring in general. This is different enough to catch my interest, and were a good toy version of it made, I'd certainly buy it.

Lets be honest,.. For the most part they never really were "In disguise". Most of the alt modes in nearly every incarnation of TF has been pretty stand out. No reason why the movies should be any different.

But I agree about the cowl hood. Loose that, as well as on set of smokes stacks and it would be a drastic improvement.

I think it looks good. My only contempt is that the Dinobots might no be dinosaurs. If they aren't, Bay can go **** himself in the acid pits of Unicron. The same with Slingshot being a car and not a plane. The ****??

I like it except for the smokestacks. From the front they look like Garfield's whiskers.

I think this would have been a way more badass look. Traditional while still being 'in your face.'

I like where your going with it, but that's a bit to impractical for prime. Yes, Prime's by no means subtle, at least he can drive on a standard road. This thing would take up two lanes driving down the road!

Totally badass! The larger cab/sleeper with spoilers/ground effects, 4 fuel tanks, lots of exhaust stacks, will mean better armor and weapons. OP took a beating at the end of DOTM, a re-format is definitely due. Maybe this will translate into a new "ultimate" version. Now he just needs the trailer, hell yeah! These next 11 months better go fast, come on June 27 2014.

I like it except for the flames, I'm not too fond of the flames but if it were a Red and Blue truck I would love it.

I think it's going to take some getting used to. I think it's a bit much and liked the previous look in the films better. Oh well. They're going to do what they're going to do.
