Sounds like I am going to miss Brian Tyler's music style already. :(

Fulfilling his role as the Autobot Fixit, that's what.

It's funny how people on both Seibertron and TFW2005 keep calling Strongarm (who's basically a larger version of TF:Prime Arcee) a bodybuilder and comparing her to Strika (who barely looks humanoid, let alone feminine) simply because she isn't another generic super-thin fembot.

Pfft, "bodybuilder". :roll:

Beast Machines Optimus Primal looked like a bodybuilder. Strongarm's just got a standard non-supermodel body.

(btw, this post is in agreement with yours, rather than against it)

I think we're in for something sonorously cool.

I was under the assumption that the description was given in press releases :???:

If not though I can sorta see the logical hoops people would have jumped through. We have a fem bot who doesn't look at all like fem bots the fandom are used to. The question becomes why is she different then other fembots? Sooner or later one person will suggest something along the lines of "gee, maybe she's a bodybuilder, that's why she's so beefed up!". People will like it because it's actually something they could see happening.

Of course if it was an offical source then I just wasted my time typing that :lol:

"HOW FEMBOT NOT THIN AND CURVED?! I AM SCARED AND CONFUSED!! GOTTA COMPLAIN"

I am super into that new design though, that's one of the new designs I'm really falling for. I'm really looking forward to that character in particular, and the more that I look at it the more I'm into the art style. Hopefully the writing will be Prime or Animated level too, and I'll be set.

Well the show is being aimed at a younger audience then prime was but that doesn't mean it won't be well written ;)

And it's the same people who made Prime and Rescue Bots.

Wait. This stuff is gonna be in the Aligned Continuity? Well shit. There goes my second-favourite continuity. Why did Hasbro have to shit all over a decent continuity?

I'm talking about Hasbro's fetish for Bumblebee overpowering their common sense.

You're still not making yourself clear. What exactly is wrong with this show that you, me, and no one else has even seen yet?

I think, expressed in a bad way, he doesn't like the idea of bee in a leadership position (despite the situation being set up in Predacons Rising). Don't see what wrong with it myself, I'm willing to give anything a chance.

Well, thanks for understanding what I meant. My point is that how is it logical that we have Bumblebee as a scout for at least a thousand years (WFC/FOC/TFP), then we have him become a leader within what, 3 years? Does that make ANY sense to anyone here?

And yet, Optimus was a data clerk for most of his uncountable years of of pre-war existence, and then became Prime after just one meeting with the High Council. Simple librarian one day, supreme military commander and political envoy the next.

At least in Bumblebee's case, Otpimus abolished the Prime rank and opened up the opportunity for multiple leaders at the same time.

And from the sound of things, Bee more than likely isn't gonna be the sole master of all Autobots, but instead just the leader of his own ragtag five-bot unit consisting of just himself, Sideswipe, Fixit, Strongarm, and the still-unnamed green Dinobot.

In other words, he'll be less Optimus Prime and more Optimus Primal/TFA Optimus Prime in rank.

Thank god. I was worried that my precious continuity would be destroyed.
