I'm probably the most Excited about Grimlock,Lockdown and Galvatron.
It can't get any better then a robot dinosaur,A jacked up Megatron,and a dude with a gun for a face.

How about the rest of you guys and gals? :michaelbay: :michaelbay:

Optimus. He's always been my favorite part of the TF movies, but his new design is just plain badass. My favorite TF design of all time.

I want to see how they handle Galvatron, and Lockdown looks to be a bad mofo. I'm tired of Optimus and Bumblebee, and Prime's new design just resembles used TP. The Dinobots so far are a disappointment to look at, maybe they'll be OK in the film. Otherwise, nothing interesting.

Lockdown's currently my favorite right now. The gun-face thing is awesome.

Indifferent about Galvatron until I see him in the movie. Looks rather bland, right now.

So far, I'm rather underwhelmed by OP's and BB's new designs, but that's coming from a collector's perspective, because I know they'll never be able to accurately transform from one mode to the other.

As a viewer, I think OP's design is pretty good.

I hate Bee's new face, though. Looks bloated and ugly to me.

Grimlock!

If the whole movie is just a giant robot dinosaur breathing fire at other robots and causing explosions with no explanation whatsoever I'll be quite happy.

I feel you pain, bro. It's really hard to be excited about anyone confirmed so far.

1. Crosshairs
Love his design, loved his badass parachute sequence from the trailer. I just hope he is given a great voice actor to really make him even more epic!

2. Grimlock
Don't think I need to say much here, I mean it's freakin' Grimlock! Really hope he is voiced by Gregg Berger, not only is he the logical choice (Fall Of Cybertron is total proof he's still got it!) he is also a nod/salute to G1 fans everywhere!

3. Stinger
So mysterious! I just want to know more about how he was assembled by the humans, based off Bumblebee and whether or not he is a true Decepticreep or just a bot torn between both factions. Also, his robot face is really neat. Reminds me of an insecticon.

4. Drift
Like a lot of fanatics, not a huge fan of the gold face. But I am very curious on what his personality will be. Will he just be a silent badass? Will he speak mandarin like the rumors say? And will his sword play in the action scenes make up totally for his gold face? So many questions!

5. Hound
Like the idea of have an old grizzled war vetformer. Not too fond of the Leadfoot gut, but I hope he has a strong personality and doesn't sound too much like Leadfoot.

6. Lockdown
Like the humanoid face, though I can understand a lot of the dislike. Just skeptical whether or not Bay & Co. can really poll this beloved bounty hunter off!

7. Bumblebee
I am more curious with the newer characters rather than the old. But I must say I am in awe of Bee's new robot mode!

8. The Other Dinobots
I really hope these guys are pulled off well and get a chance to transform into their knights inspired robot modes. Fingers crossed.

9. Optimus Prime
Like I said with Bee, more curious with the newer characters rather than the old. His robot mode looks cool, but I'm still left wondering why he would go with a knights look. Was he inspired by the Dinobots? Is he a regular at Medieval Times resturaunt? Again, lots of questions!

10. Galvatron
Still would have preferred a different Decepticon baddie than Galvie, but I do like his alt mode. Also, his robot face is a slight improvement over Megs'.

Drift's look and what concept they're going for looks like a ronin*, so let's pray they go that route.

I think all these Transformers in AOE are very interesting.

Bee has a New Look

Optimus is Darker he even attacked humans but Understandable

Galvatron Human Transformer Drone but will he be a Full Decepticons by end of AOE through Plot Device or other means

Lockdown - One Word BAD-ASS

Dinobots - FREAKIN AWESOME Grimlock to 2 Headed Saur AWESOME

Cyclonus - WE DONT KNOW ANYTHING ON HIM

Hound

Crosshair

Drift

They are probably more since they are some vehicles that have been spotted on SET

Other transformers remain a mystery such as CYCLONUS.

Don't know his Robotic LOOK or his ALT.MODE.

For me, it's probably Crosshairs... that guy just oozes fun and hilarity. Runner-ups being Hound, Drift, and Lockdown.

Yeah...highly doubtful. IF Unicron ever makes it to the big screen, he will be much larger than that.

I am actually also looking forward to Mark Wahlberg's character a bit. Yeah, I said it. He's a mechanic with a kid who gets mixed up with transforming alien mechanoids. Sounds like Sparkplug from the Marvel comics to me. Though I'm sure it's pure coincidence.

Does anyone else have the idea that Crosshairs is going to be the Sideways of AoE? Gets a figure, gets a few seconds' screen time, gets killed? It would hardly be the first time this kind of thing happened in the live action movies. Sideways, Jolt, the Dreads, Demolisher, Bonecrusher, Brawl. They all got toys and all got a brief appearance--terribly brief by the standards of films that barely develop their characters minus few exceptions--and then were gone.
Demolisher at least said a few words, and the others probably totaled three minutes of screentime combined.

I'm not trying to rain on the Crosshairs parade, I guess it's just a feeling I've gotten in response to the live action movies and the way they seem to do this kind of thing on a regular basis.

I really hope Hasbro makes a show accurate figure (in both scale and color) of BW Dinobot and Optimus Primal one day. Do they know they hold the keys to printing money ?!

There is a rumor he speaks mandarin? But Samurais are Japanese, not chinese, this is a bit odd
