We've become pretty familiar with the new design for Transformers: Age of Extinction Optimus Prime robot mode, but Bumblebee has managed to stay off the radar for the most part. We've caught glimpse of him here and there from various licensed products, which is the case again today, but this is best look we've got his new robot mode to date. The images comes to us from the latest product catalog from Carrera Toys, who are producing a Transformers: Age of Extinction slot car set, which features the aforementioned Bee and Lockdown (2013 Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4).

Glad to see that the one of the things they carried over from the old design is the oversized crotch plate...

More black than yellow in 'bot mode from what I can tell. Glad to see the Beast Hunters deco is changing the way future Bumblebees are presented.

i think bumblebee looks very cool.. i still don't like the disappearing car parts in robot mode though.. .

it looks like his door wings are gone which is going to be good for the toy.. since not a single version of bumblebee in toy form had the doors in the accurate position.. 07 concept got it close.

i love the new camaro design too. i'm surprised so many people dislike it.

So what? Lots of Transformers have doors on their shoulders. :/

Im not a fan of old characters getting new bodies for each movie, especially when their alt mode hasnt changed. Just leave them alone. It worked fine for Rachet and Ironhide. And wasnt Sideswipe the same robot mode even when he went convertible ?

I like Bumblebee's new look. I didn't like how they beefed him up in Dark of the Moon.

Not the best angle, but he looks okay.

Looks meh. Way too overly angular and random all over the place. =;

Very stylized, very obvious that artistic license has been taken. Anyone counting on this as an accurate representation should get both their eyes and their head checked. I've seen box art on KO figures come closer to actual product depiction or character representation than this. >:oP

It definitely fits in with the armour motif.

And as always Rated X hates change.

I for one don't know a fuck what they are trying to do to the franchise with those horrible robot modes styles, but if their goal is to kill it, they sure are doing it well

The brand has survived worse.

after watching the last three films, this seems pretty consistent. I can't find myself getting upset about it.

Lose the crotch thing.

Otherwise, I'm not overly concerned. I think with the last two abortions, we'd all be a bit naive if we expected an oscar award winning outing. With that said, I'd rather they focused on the important things, like plot and dialogue and not pooping on all the Transformers mythos instead of where they shove doorwings.

Did laugh at matrix pixie dust though.

Eh, what the hey, I have disposible income! Go nuts, Mr. Bay!

They did focus on that in the first and third movies.

instead of where they shove doorwings.


They don't give half a damn where the kibble is, really.

Hey Just Negare, you forgot the problem of having minimal screen time and dialogue for the actual Transformers... like poor Jazz and Wheeljack, who spoke maybe two lines.

(Bumblebee getting no dialogue in lieu of R2-D2-rip-off beeps didn't help.)

But I digress.

Giant codpiece = Bumblebee has official entered adolescence. Expect some pimples and voice cracking in this fourth movie.

Because Transformers are a plot device in the live action films rather than the central focus. You're lucky any of them spoke at all, really.

(Bumblebee getting no dialogue in lieu of R2-D2-rip-off beeps didn't help.)


R2-D2 beeps were in Prime (which are actually quite a pain in the ass to produce). Bee spoke using a radio in the films.

Both of which is dialogue regardless.

Bumblebee's getting younger! :P

you think noises = dialogue??? I guess we'll agree to disagree there.

Thanks for the correction on the beeps. You're right, the movie was more of a buzzy noise. Reminded me of the teachers from the old Charlie Brown specials.

Perhaps, but when he's using actual words (the movies) or his lines are recorded by Frank Welker in the studio and other characters and the audience can understand him fine (Prime for 64 episodes), it pretty much counts as dialogue.

You have some valid points... but when I can't understand it, it might as well be the Swedish Chef... or Beaker... or the Teletubbies.

My point is it's difficult to get across CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT if there are no spoken words. The robots read as background characters, which is a bummer to any fan of the franchise... and I didn't pay to see Sam Witwicky: the Movie.

I'm specifically speaking about developing the robots as characters in the movie, not who is getting paid, etc. I'm saying it sucks they don't get more screen time and aren't developed more as characters... and yes, I'm saying it's a bummer they don't get more right-real spoken English wordy words.

I'd like for them to get more screen time as well, I just don't see it happening. The technology to allow them to do that amount of cgi at a reasonable cost just doesn't exist yet.

maybe, but the point is that a lot of people are sick and tired of bumblebee taking so much place.

and the new designs are totally ugly. :BANG_HEAD: :BANG_HEAD:

sorry I swore but damn I really dont like where they are going with this new revamping...
sure thing: hasbro/takara wont make much money with me with these toys...
