I still would be interested in hearing a rationalization why Cybertronian Optimus Prime has truck windows on his chest. Did Alpha Trion have a premonition that Optimus would eventually need to travel to another planet and blend in with the fleshling's delivery vehicles? Just because we didn't question 1980's cartoon logic doesn't mean I won't question 2019 movie logic. ILM designers have gotten criminally lazy since GL sold them off.

It's because Travis Knight wanted him to look like G1 Optimus.

These are gorgeous right here.

And they are proof to me that I really really REALLY wish these designs would have been the foundation of a new, different universe movie or TV series. They are so cool, but so at odds with the design from this universe that I really like that that dominates the rest of the movie.

Still love them though, just needed to be in a different place.

BTW, I now really want an "Into the Spiderverse" but using Transformers

We have a fun feature for you today. The Seibertron site got to meet the writer for Bumblebee, Christina Hodson, for an interview conducted by our very own Jon Bailey. There was more fun to be had as well:

Go with Jon Bailey (voices of Shockwave & Soundwave) to Paramount Studios to interview Bumblebee writer Christina Hodson, create the sounds of Bumblenee with foley artists Dawn Lunsford and Alicia Stevenson & go under the hood of the actual VW Bumblebee car with mechanic Sarah Lyon! BUMBLEBEE IS OUT NOW ON DIGITAL, DVD, BLU-RAY & 4K ULTRA HD!
Special thanks to Paramount & Seibertron.com!





We hope you had fun with this as much as Jon did. Please remember that Bumblebee is out on Blu Ray today for all of you to enjoy!

Not the first time it’s happened. I still remember watching the SFX section of the first movie and of course the main animator that’s interviewed was someone who looks like a stereotypical transformers nerd. Over weight, glasses, transformers shirt and a desk that is engulfed in toys and what’s right in front of them all? Fansproject city commander.

Well it was a one day thing, and how do we know what was on the tape? It could have just been a Rick roll with Bee's face over Rick Astley ;)

They don't look specifically like truck windows to me.

Maybe you're interpreting the shapes that way because we know he eventually gains his truck alt mode.

Great work Jon! Also great work in Bumblebee! Your Shockwave and Soundwave were spot on! My friends really thought that was Corey Burton and Frank Welker! I said “no! That’s the guy who does the voice in Homest Trailers and he actually played Optimus Prime in a cartoon!” It blew their mind.

They sure do, I stated that in another post. I felt that way too when I saw the planet design and layout of Cybertron in the opening minutes for Bumblebee! It's amazing

Paramount Approved How Bumblebee Should Have Ended Video featuring Jon Bailey

PostPosted: Thu Apr 04, 2019 5:48 pm

As you know, Seibertron's very own Jon Bailey voiced both Shockwave and Soundwave in the Bumblebee movie. And now, for the How it Should Have Ended youtube video for Bumblebee, Jon gets to voice every other Transformer (except for Bumblebee). So you can hear him as Soundwave and Shockwave again along with ratchet and of course Optimus Prime, who he previously voiced in Combiner Wars (as well as the prep voice in the Bumblebee film). Pretty cool to see that it's all the same person voicing all those bots. Paramount has approved of this youtube video as well, which is always an added bonus for fanwork. We hope you enjoy it, it's a pretty funny video, especially all the Optimus bits.

So Paramount approved and sponsored this awesome collab I worked on with HISHE. I voice all the main Transformers characters except Bumblebee! And Paramount was cool with me doing the voices!

Jon's voice talents are insane! It's become almost impossible to tell his voice from Peter Cullen's. If Hasbro doesn't hand the reins over to him when Peter decides he's done, it would be a crime.

Wow, if I realized that fan works were newsworthy, I literally would have submitted this yesterday

That being said, this HISHE was awesome, I especially loved how Starscream’s design transferred to 2D, Shockwave on the other hand increased his thicc levels by at least 20% :shock:

Just finished watching my copy of Bumblebee, loved it as much as I did in the theatre.

I've really fallen in love with the designs used in the movie. The Cybertron scenes are great live action FOC designs, and the Earth designs are great. I love Shatter and Dropkick, Decepticons done much better justice, and wholly original! Dropkick is unhinged and Shatter just oozes Decepticon when she speaks

Why do they have to push "FEMALE" on everything these days? As if women are something new & never existed before now. We're here with FEMALE mechanics & I love writing FEMALE characters & it's about time Transformers had a FEMALE lead. WTF? Ok, feminists & SJW's, we get it, women can do stuff. Newsflash: NOBODY CARES! Now please stop shoving it in our face. Transformers is a BOYS toy line, it was originally for MALES. Now piss off & go back to where you belong & make a Strawberry Shortcake or Rainbow Brite movie for FEMALES. Jeez, enough is enough.


Why is nobody bitching about this? All you see is everybody bitching about SJW Star Wars & Captain Marvel but Bumblebee gets a free pass? Why is nobody talking about women pushing their BS here? Who cares if a male or female is a mechanic? Seriously! It doesn't matter if you have a penis or a vagina to fix cars. This world is getting more ridiculous & insane by the hour. :BOOM:
