Ohhhhhhhhhh, what if they try to do a homage to the very first G1 Episode with Bumblebee and Wheeljack at the start of the movie?

Now that would be G1 pandering that would be really good and brilliant.

I am so incredibly over this movie. For years anyone who reacted negatively to a trailer were shouted down and told to wait until the movie was released before judging.

But this is the complete opposite, just because of a few seconds of G1-esque designs and suddenly it's the greatest movie ever. ugh ... my expectations were low, but given how people have peed their pants over this trailer I feel like logging off for a few weeks until the over-hype dies down until December.

As for the G1-esque bots, I personally feel that this don't mix well with the awesomeness Bee and the cons have brought. Don't get me wrong. They look pretty nice. But they don't seem to belong in this continuity. I would be really impressed had they been introduced in another installment (could be a new series, or a game), but in this movie? That feeling is kinda stamped out.

Thankfully, the stuff that's on earth is amazing enough to still get me hyped for this movie.

Just my two cents.

i feel that they take everything we love about movie verse bots
(not a ton, but still something),
and melded it, quite nicely, with the G1-ishness we were sad to be missing.

the mashup aesthetic
is WORKIN 4 me!

Oh, don't get me wrong, I'm loving the more G1 inspired designs but I'm still only cautiously optimistic. Believe me, not all of us drink the kool aid.

Well that Studio Series Dropkick looks very G1 styled, with those smooth rectangular limbs being solid pieces of the alt mode. Looks like how I wish Generations Whirl would have turned out.

And yeah, as I told D-Max, I get where you are coming from. But I dont feel that way, simply because I never liked the overcomplicated designs, they always felt more alien than robotic, especially the decepticons. I really love this Blitzwing face, wow.

As for Bee being Bay-verse Bee, I feel thats only because of his face. Of course, a head is a big deal, it totally defines you. But for this Bee, its all thats left. The rest of the bot feels very G1 styled (not necessaily G1 Bee,but G1 in general), with all the smooth surfaces. I think if his head was made more G1 ala Soundwave and Prime in this film, it would truly reveal just how different this been design is compared to the established Bay look.

Now that I think about it the only design that strikes to me as non fitting with the Bay Aesthetic is Soundwave outside of his head, he's pretty darn smooth even in comparison to Prime and Bee who are quite the smooth fellas themselves.

I'm personally less excited for the designs and such and more so for the fact that at the very least this movie seems to be trying to have a soul and be a family film.

They already seem quite better then Bay's run just for that, and honestly that's all I'm personally looking for.

Alas I'm personally waiting for the movie to come out to make my final decision.

I actually feel like Bee's head here looks very well, it's cute and more like what I think his original Bay verse head was supposed to invoke to the audience. (the whole puppy like behavior)

I honestly don't know what I prefer I like Bee's G1 face and it's probably easier for talking but I think it's just pretty generic like all the non face plated Autobots (not that there's anything wrong with normal generic mouth faces but for someone as significant as Bumblebee)

I didnt mean to say it didnt look good, i just meant it was the only obvious remnant of the original Bay design and the only thing stopping it from us thinking he looks more in line with Optimus and Soundwave.

And I do share excitement over these designs in general even if it's just a movie take on G1 designs.

this is the CHEAPEST Transformers movie in the franchise. $100 mil or so IIRC.

So to get the cyberton stuff looking anyway decent at all is a bleeding miracle- and my moneys is STILL on em polishing that stuff off to look better by release date.

Actually I think the length of that Cybertron segment will be testament to how "cheap" the movie is as in comparison to the rest of the movie, it'll be very short.

I understand some of the criticisms, comparing some of the all-cybertronian sequences to things like FoC (which was top notch video game graphics for 2012), or even Transformers Prime (2010-2013) but I think HD game graphics have kind of spoiled us.

I'm not exactly sure what the average budget is for video games nowadays. I know that development of a game is becoming more and more like that of a big budget hollywood movie, but still, I don't think they are in the high tens-to hundreds of millions of dollars for development.

I too believe the sequences (however brief they are) will look more polished by the time of release, or else, yes it would look jarring. The first TF film, DotM, and even TLK (when Prime meets Quintessa), all had 100% cg scenes on Cybertron that did not look any different than the overall film.

I'm sure, as most have speculated, the scenes of war on Cybertron will be brief, but any future chance we have to have a full movie with nothing but Transformers, I am going to support any way I can.

The development for the game Destiny was 140 million $ and that does not cover the added marketting cost. Thats higher than the budget for this film.

Site owner Seibertron has been dedicating a lot of time painstakingly breaking down the new trailer we saw late Sunday, early Monday for the Bumblebee movie, and now we have that full gallery available for your viewing pleasure! The gallery can be seen in full HERE or by clicking on any of the select images below, and some images can be seen below. It gives us some great shots at Shatter, Dropkick, and Blitzwing in their Earth forms, Bumblebee in his Jeep and VW Beetle modes, and some awesome shots of the Cybertron based scenes that have been a source of a lot of talk with the trailer.

Check out the images below, and let us know what you think of these stills in the comments section below!

Just an FYI to those who find the G1 designs to hurt the continuity, when it comes to Shockwave it is actually in live action film continuity that he was first seen on earth in his G1 design. So it could be presumed that others looked more G1 on Cybertron.

That image is from ROTF by the way.

Is that Action Master Soundwave? Judging by his proportions he must be. Soundwave is supposed to have a big chest, broad shoulders and big chunky legs. Instead he has a big head and a small body, almost like a Japanese Superdeformed.

The more time I spend on the internet, the more I think I'm a stupid consumer ; I really liked all of the recent movies, and am eagerly waiting for this one... I'm just glad to see Transformers on the big screen, so having movies is always good news. As long as they don't turn it into something blatantly bad like a puppet show with a $38.52 budget or into literal pornography, I'll be glad to go see the movie.

So, when I see people discussing what was good, what was bad, some director's crimes against the franchise, I just feel like I don't have any critical taste... I mean, I'm able to criticise video games or comics and mangas, but so far I haven't been shocked by something bad in the Transformers movies. Maybe it's because I just come into the cinema awaiting nothing but big robots fighting, and my desires are satisfied each time.

I don’t mind it, but I don’t understand why all the bots/cons on Cybertron look G1-accurate(Bumblebee being a Volkswagen Beetle) while Blitzwing stood out like a sored thumb(still retaining the Starscream look). Couldn’t they at least changed the colors a bit and give him a visor to further differentiate from Starscream?

So whilst on my travels, I came across this article on the guardian website, an opinion piece on the movie.

https://www.theguardian.com/film/2018/sep/28/bumblebee-hailee-steinfeld-transformers-is-for-kids

Now don't let the headline fool you into thinking that this just talks about how adults shouldn't like the franchise, as adult fans are mentioned, but instead it talks about how the treatment of the female stars differ from the five Bay movies to knights bumblebee.

I was saying that all the transformers on Cybertron all have G1-accurate designs(Optimus, Shockwave, Soundwave, etc) while Blitzwing still retained Starscream’s G1 look and could’ve changed a bit to look closer to his namesake. And besides, this is a reboot(like how Bumblebee having a Volkswagen Beetle alt mode), so so your statement is rendered invalid.

Not if the whisperings of Bee getting his 70s Camaro form by the end of the film prove true. ;)

Considering how much they are promoting bee in his camaro form under this movies banner, I would be suprised if the rumours weren't true.

Really hoping there's gonna be Barricade there.

As for the G1-esque bots, I personally feel that this don't mix well with the awesomeness Bee and the cons have brought. Don't get me wrong. They look pretty nice. But they don't seem to belong in this continuity. I would be really impressed had they been introduced in another installment (could be a new series, or a game), but in this movie? That feeling is kinda stamped out.

Thankfully, the stuff that's on earth is amazing enough to still get me hyped for this movie.

Just my two cents.

i feel that they take everything we love about movie verse bots
(not a ton, but still something),
and melded it, quite nicely, with the G1-ishness we were sad to be missing.

the mashup aesthetic
is WORKIN 4 me!

:KREMZEEK:


Yeah...Like I said, they would've been real dope if they're from another continuity/story. I think I would be really be excited if it's a new version of the wars at cybertron like Fall of Cybertron as I was (and still) a fan of that game. And again, comparing with how Shatter, Dropkick and Blitzwing looks, I still feel that it doesn't really fit.

Though if it's revealed that some insane cataclysmic event actually turned the G1-looking bots into how they are at the previous films, I might open up. William-James' point on the G1-esque Shockwave appearing at a newspaper from ROTF kinda got me thinking.

Personally, I love the alien aspect of the Cybertronians (Was really digging ROTF Ravage and DOTM Shockwave and more back then, so yeah). The Generations toyline (although I don't collect TFs anymore) is enough to sate (at least for me) on the G1-stuffs.

But hey, I'll see the film for more refined thoughts as maybe I'll open up. But for now, I'm still feeling what's mentioned above.
Cheers! ;)^

now
if :HASBRO: :TAKARATOMY: can pull their collective...
cranial modules...
from their... um...
rear axle assembly,
and produce these beauties of a triple-changers
into descent figs.

oooooo, boy!
i'd bee the happy happy joy joy!

ooo, ding-dang-doo!


Though I don't collect TFs anymore, but I still keep myself updated with the franchise and it's toyline. So..would definitely be interesting to see those figs produced!

Well apparently Hasbro DID confirmed it as an alternative chronology(whether or not the reboot statement holds water is up in the air): http://news.tfw2005.com/2018/05/31/hasb ... ond-364648

He wasn't using the word "chronology" in the correct way when he said that. The words he should have used to say what he meant was "time period" or "point in time", as he was only referring to how this movie takes place in the 1980s instead of the late 2000s/early 2010s like the other movies.
