We've got some interesting rumours now for Bumblebee: The Movie. Thanks to blog, Discussing Film, we've learned that possibly the movie not just opens on Cybertron, but will also feature several classic bots as well! The rumours also go further and say that these will feature cgi models that resemble their G1 looks. A few names are also hinted at, fan favourite names at that. These are Shockwave, Soundwave and Cliffjumper.

Take everything with a pinch of salt though, as anything could change. To fully be certain, we'll just have to watch the film when it debuts on December 21st this year!

Here is one snippet from the article.
So what iconic transformers can you expect to see in 'Bumblebee'? Fans will have a fun time scanning the battlefields on Cybertron for many instantly recognisable characters. Three that stand out in the film are Soundwave, Shockwave and Cliffjumper. Note that these are only brief cameos and most of them are not speaking roles


The article aslo points out how they will potentially look in the movie, but again this is not confirmed.
Fans of Transformer’s “Generation 1” will be pleased for the film will showcase many iconic autobots and decepticons- all which sport designs identical to their 1980s cartoon counterparts

I don’t think I can say much since we haven’t seen how they actually look, but I’m hoping they retain the feel of the previous movie TFs. From what we’ve seen so far, I think they will. I’m intrigued by Shockwave, a mix of his G1 and DOTM forms could be pretty cool looking

I’m SUPER excited to see the Cybertronian modes for the movie bots, though! I remember one of the DOTM novels had Optimus and Starscream in that opening scene on Cybertron, and I was a little disappointed that we didn’t see them in that scene of the movie.

Right off the bat, I feel that these will just be generics that look visualy similar. I mean yeah we have seen some prequel material (that seems obsolete) where these characters were shown on Cybertron, but they didn't look exactly G1 inspired. I mean, CJ was Bumblebee but in red, Soundwave had his ROTF design, and Shockwave was in his DOTM design (which changed overtime).

the key word is most of them dont have voice roles

meaning that they really dive deep into the lore of cybertron and thus the war will also be included and there will be voice acting for some of the listed characters

once again this makes my hopes for this movie go up and higher

Or like, Soundwave gets a single generic line during the 30-to-90-second Cybertron sequence.

Personally I'm guessing it's somewhere in between those two, but we I wouldn't advise getting your hopes too high for a lore deep-dive, since this movie is pretty definitively about the emotional core of a relationship on earth.

I'm thinking along those lines as well, cybertron is just starting the plot. We'll see snippets of battles then prime will tell bee to get to earth.

Even if just a cameo I look forward to a movieverse Cliffjumper, always loved the guy.

So they stand out by not getting to speak? Uhhh okay then.

As much as I do think that this will be a good movie. I do hope they don't focus too much on Bumblebee. Don't get me wrong I don't wanna sound negative but Bee gets to be in everything and is often a main character with a lot of merch. I just wanna see some of the others get the spotlight outside of the big 3.

With only two villains in the film, I'm hoping that they get some development more than previous villains in the movies...or movies in general these days.

So at least some of them Speak I presume that these cameos are brief and are small generic war lines like.

"Take cover!", "He's over there!", "Watch that sniper!" Those kind of lines.

You do know they also don't have to speak to standout regardless anyways for example Cliffjumper could be an Autobot that get's killed by Shockwave in front of Bumblebee or something.

Also it's Bee's movie he is the main character so of course the focus will mostly be on him, after that it will be the Decepticons of the movie, then Optimus since he's more then a cameo although still not that big a presence overall, then the cameos which can either be characters in the background as screen fillers or minor characters that get a couple of minutes and lines to themselves. (Like Say Barricade is an after credits scene or something)

That's not including the human characters as well since there is Charlie who will most certainly have a lot of spotlight, her family and friends including that male friend or brother, Burns and the rest of Sector Seven and who knows who else.

We have some new, potentially spoiler-filled news from the upcoming Transformers Bumblebee Movie, due in cinemas this December 2018, in the form of an auction of a movie prop over on Screenused.com!

Their latest issue is auctioning off a Willys Jeep which is supposed to be the first alt mode for Bumblebee himself, in the opening - though not the opening opening, as we saw that it will be set on Cybertron here - as we saw in the trailer, and as confirmed in the San Diego Comic Con 2018 footage from the panel (while pursued by John Cena / Agent Burns, and Blitzwing). All of this happens before he takes on the iconic Volkswagen beetle mode. You can check out the auction below, and some screencaps from the trailer to confirm the alt mode jeep parts, and join the conversation!

When will we get that bee in toyline? So potentially, bee could go through three alts in the movie. Going from the jeep, to the vw and, if rumours are correct, the '77 camaro.

that Bee looks very Swindley

Interesting. So question 1 is will there be a toy? Question 2 is, new mold, or a remold/redeco of a previous Hound or Swindle? The Universe Hound that came with Ravage looks like it would actually work pretty well with the grill placement and shoulder wheels.

I want a Studio Series toy with this version of BB so badly.
And it's an easy recolor into a classics Hound. Just change the head, too ;)^

That mold is very probably too old to use for normal retail anymore.

As part of a store exclusive boxed set, not a normal retail figure.

So what's the point?
