Following our last post that David Sobolov is in Bumblebee, we now have confirmation that he voices triple changer Blitzwing, as many people theorized. This news comes from his Twitter in a post. In the Tweet, he thanks Travis and Paramount for allowing him to work on another Transformers project.

#Transformers fans... It’s time to reveal I’m the voice of Blitzwing in @bumblebeemovie ! Thank you Travis Knight and @ParamountPics for this exciting chance to work on another epic @transformers adventure.


For those wondering, David has done voice work in the past for Transformers, namely, Beast Wars Depth Charge and Prime Shockwave.

Does this make you more excited for the movie? Are you happy that Blitzwing will be voiced with a Transformers veteran? let us know in the Pub forum's below!

I'm really hoping that all this "It's Blitzwing, not Starscream" thing is just the movie staff trying to pull a prank on us.

unless they state it is starscream and not blitzwing, I will be waiting until its out on DVD. Screamer would be the only reason why I would watch a Bee movie.

So Peter Cullen, Frank Welker and Leonard Nimoy don't count ;-)?

Also we need to understand that this is Blitzwing... As little as it makes sense (though he also turns up in the movie prequel comic looking like this). If the rumours are true about this, then you won't want him to be starscream anyway as he's rumoured to die right near the beginning. After all Shatter and Dropkick are the main villains of the film.

Well either way I just like seeing more voice actors from tf projects join the movies, since they usually end up being more memorable, no matter how long they last.

So will this Blitzwing actually be a triple changer? Enquiring minds want to know....

Well he is in the comics from his depiction, but we'll have to wait and see with the movie.

It is most likely he will be a triple changer, in one of the prequel comics released by IDW for the Bumblebee movie, he turns into a jet and a tank. Now things could have changed in the 20 year gap but it's always possible.

Movie trailers are designed to be as misleading as possible, they'll probably revise the design to closely match Blitzwing.

Lol, no. People saw quite a bit of movie footage and he looks just like this in robot mode.

Showing up in the US, after the commercial cut-outs for stores selling the toys, we're starting to see the same promotional material appear in cinemas and theatres for the Transformers Bumblebee Movie - and thanks to a short clip from Twitter user Octovaitor, we have an close up look at one of the animated ones too!

You can check out the clip below, as Bumblebee moves its illuminated blue eyes in the standee, over the title of the movie and the 'Christmas' release date bracket. Give it a look, as well as the official render of the same image, and join the conversation about the movie in the Energon Pub Discussion Boards!

I saw one of the displays at the Century City AMC in Los Angeles last night. It’s big, probably the size of a pickup truck. I think the eyes are a little video screen.

Sorry the escalator’s in the shot, it was too close to avoid.

So I guess this confirms the rumors of the Cybertron scenes.

Transformers fans rejoice! Not only do we have news that a new trailer for the Transformers: Bumblebee movie will be up soon, but we know that it will confirm all the rumours we have been hearing regarding the war on Cybertron scene. In fact a teaser for the trailer was released in various places online (here is one on Instagram or instance) and in this teaser we see Optimus Prime, both as a hologram and in a Cybertronian war scene, as well as Soundwave ejecting Ravage. And every single frame looks just like what G1 fans always wanted in a live action movie. We thank Deadput for sending this our way.

Another teaser trailer was released, centering more around Bumblebee and his ability to hide.

Also, Darth-Badguy sent us a video of the Bumblebee cut out advertisement currently found in movie theatres. Stay tuned for the full trailer which should hit the 24th.

You know, I was seriously hoping that the G1 references would stop at Bumblebee's appearance and Blitzwing looking like Starscream. Seeing Optimus and Soundwave on Cybertron makes me feel they are part of a video game. No, that's too generous; these designs look like the uninspiring G1-washing redesigns that purists have to make as if they feel their childhood has to be replicated 24/7 no matter what. Okay, Bumblebee I can get past by since they want him to be younger (though out of place next to TLK's WWII scenes). Optimus should have looked like his Protoform toy. Soundwave feels like the TF version of overly praising Boba Fett. There's no friggin way that these designs would blend in with the movie designs we've seen since 2007. I don't care if people think I'm not a real TF fan just because I don't like G1 (I like G1 when it's minding its own business and not making other shows try to be like it). This inconsistency between Cybertron and movie designs has got to be as bad, if not worse, than the inconsistency between the WFC and Prime designs, yet people will get praise for it because IT's MUH NOSTALGIA!!!!! :-x

Then again, people think the MCU Hulk turning from a no-nonsense powerhouse in his solo movie to becoming a coward and immature child in Laffalok and Infinity Cash Grabs is character development. :BANG_HEAD: :BANG_HEAD: :BANG_HEAD: :BANG_HEAD: :BANG_HEAD: :BANG_HEAD: :BANG_HEAD: :BANG_HEAD:
