This between the Netflix show,the Bumblebee movie,the War Cybertron/Alligned games and the IDW comics,I don't see how this will be much different.
It would be cool to have a story to tie in the previous movies stories,but since it states it's not tied to the movie continuity,it will be another origin story.

I think this can be cool by itself,I just wonder what the thought process that happened.

This movie sounds like it might be another adaptation of the Optimus/Megatron history from the Binder of Revelation (since its lore is still influencing current media like Cyberverse and such), kinda like what the first half of the Exodus novel was.

Sounds neat, though I have to admit I've grown mixed with Toy Story 4 thanks to, well, certain things that irk me as a fan. Still, kind of bummed out that it's said to not be connected to the 6 movies because I was interested in seeing how it'd better connect things, even if I've seen what the backstory of Prime and Megatron is like in most continuities and would rather stray away from backstories.

What I am really asking with this is to please not be a Prime Wars cartoon / War for Cybertron cartoon on the big screen. Please be more interesting and have more fun with the character designs and story.

If we get a 90 minute version of the 5 minutes of scenes on Cybertron from the Bumblebee Movie, I will be extremely happy.

Sure I can think of many other ideas I'd prefer, but seeing as this is set in the live action movie verse I'm just laying out the best possible outcome I can think of.
I am very much interested in Botcon 2016 Customization Class Medix, Shattered Glass Ratchet, G2 Ratchet, and Marvel Comic Ratchet, willing to pay fair price, PM if interested in selling.

I don't think you read the news story closely enough.

Director sounds very good!
Writers, terrible. Hopefully they will stand out this time and write a cool story (by accident).

I do hope they do more of a Cyberverse type of character design rather than Animated or Prime. Don't like those designs to be honest.

I really mis-read the title at first and it made me excited, an actual new installment in the Animated branch of the franchise! Awesome! Then I went back and was deflated...then I read the part where it will be unconnected to neither the first five tf live action movies or the Bumblebee movie. I knew they were on about rebooting everything anyway but they'll have this continuity and Bumblebee 2 (and if rumours persist, Beast Wars), but can they really juggle this?

Not that interested in the story, I would rather something new or go back to the uprising vs the quints and have the design team actually have to do new designs/characters (which should also prevent them from screwing any existing characters up) but it could be good.

My apologies, yes it was a bit confusing. So not connected to anything else, but still, I'll take that 90 minute film that looks like 5 minuets of BB on Cybertron.

now THAT'S interesting. there's a lot of story potential with how they interpret OP and megatron's relationship, and the politics surrounding it. genuinely interested just from hearing this small synopsis.

It's also how Simon Furman pronounces it, so it might just be a non-American English thing, since Boulder Media is based in Ireland.

Let's also not forget that the G1 cartoon barely aired over in the UK, so the comics were the dominant G1 media over in that part of the world, in which the Quints' name was presented in only non-audio text form. Kids over there likely read the word and, not unreasonably, thought it was pronounced like the very similar word "quintessence".

Pretty much proof it's wrong then. ;) (sorry never been a fan of furman) I get what your getting at though , but this isn't the case of a word that existed for hundreds of years, and some darned Yankee colonists are butchering it. It's a made up word. And again, I never said the pronunciation was wrong, it's just not my preference.


Besides, Modern fans have more access to media from around the world than ever before. I mean I've never heard Jhiaxus name pronounced out loud, (aside from a few comedic online videos which I'm sure were all wrong) but I'd be humble enough to acknowledge that if the way I'd been saying it all along was incorrect, I'd change it, and not just say..."well *the wrong way* is how I've always said it".

Great, here comes the back on topic brigade, my apologies....

It would be great to see an animated film delve into the mostly unseen Ancient History of the Sunbow Animated series, using modern CG as seen in the Bumblebee film, though highly unlikely

Can't see it being *that* G1 connected but I wouldn't put it past Hasbro to use it either to get the ball rolling on their GI Joe/Mask /Micronaughts/Transformers shared universe or as backstory for whatever TV project comes after Cyberverse.

While I'm in general optimistic about this movie I really do hope they make it somehow distinct/stand out compared to other Cybertron origin stories like the High Moon Cybertron games and other media.

Same with the Optimus and Megatron relationship stuff, I hope there is a new spin on that dynamic instead of the same old Aligned styled "Once brothers now enemies" thing, I would prefer them to be associates in a job rather then super close friends.

With all the great names there is under this movie, there's high chances it may be good. Appart that, I would love to see that movie being a big blockbuster theatre release. Then in the movie, the Transformers could get original designs. And hopefully, a toy line to go with it.
