Like the 67 Camaro. But Bee? Why go backwards, seeing as he was a new Camaro already. Hmmmmm........

I'm actually really pumped about Bee's new alt mode, it's one of my favorite muscle cars and the new color scheme is icing on the cake.

It would be insane if that rusty car is Ultra Magnus... I wouldn't be suprised considering he was scrapped for the third movie I believe.

I like Bumblbee's new look. Maybe a tad more yellow. A thin line going through the left and right sides of the car will do it for me.

I just want to see the robot modes already! It's definitely going to take a little time though. It would be nice if Bee has a voice in this movie but I don't think that is going to happen. Considering not being able to speak is his new gimmick.

It isn't a big deal to me. We just need more focus on the Transformers this time around.

Bad. Ass. Almost makes up for Prime's shitty new alt mode. Almost.

Also, Magnus wasn't exactly "scrapped" from DotM, Sentinel Prime was originally going to be called Ultra Magnus, but then they changed it. They thought Magnus was too much of a goody-2-shoes to be a turncoat.

But if he was that rusty old cab-over? It'd be cool. Personally, I wish it was Grimlock. I really don't want to see a mechanical dinosaur. Not sure why.

well thats one step in the right direction, now we just have to hope his tranformation/robot mode is different. Still doesnt make up for Prims horrible alt mode, And i would accept that old cabover as magnus as long as he has his trailer and it looks like magnus. Hopefully its not Galvatron

Source for why they changed the name?

Shockwave and Megatron were labelled "Blitzwing" and "Cyclonus" in concept art, despite their identity being blatantly obvious. I could see them doing the same for Sentinel.

Maybe. It was in the extras on the limited movie trilogy set blu ray for DoTM. I watched it when I 1st got it, haven't seen it since. But Sentinel was clearly called Ultra Magnus in pre-production. I recall them saying they changed it so Magnus's "character wasn't tarnished." Or something like that.

I don't get why everybodys hating on OP's alt mode. Bay said it would be a massive revamp for all the characters, and optimus got the biggest revamp. I personally think its a great looking mode, and absolutely need to see the robot mode ASAP.

And youll never hear me say this again, but HASBRO, I want a leader Bumblebee.

More or less. Some redneck came up with the term trying to make the word "America" sound tougher. It's caught on ever since, and it's got it's own little meme and series of jokes & gags.

As for the rusty old truck, my guess is Bay is using it as the butt of a joke involving Optimus's new alt mode similarly to the whole yellow Volkswagen at the car lot with Camaro Bumblebee in the first movie.


Couldn't help thinking that myself :grin:

Very strange 'Bee has gone 'backwards'...still I guess maybe they are aiming for car enthusiasts? :-? He looks a bit like TFP Cliffjumper though...maybe it's a round-a-bout homage and now 'Bee is kinda like a re-paint of an original Cliff mold? :-B
Hey, it'd be kinda cool of he transformed like TFP Cliff. It'd be closer to that classic Bumblebee transformation and less like Jazz etc. 8)

I hate to say it but BB is the best car of the bunch and the most logical of all the cars that we've seen so far in regards to the RID theme. I'm glad they went this route with him instead of amping him up into some super flashy pimped out retardedness.

Gotta say that old-school Camo is nice.
It has character. That's what I like about old and used stuff. They've seen life. Heck, even both of my leather-jackets are second-handed. That thing looks good for Bee.

I just hope they FINALLY get Bee talking, not through the radio.
