Seibertronians, the official TF5 Instagram has been doing some big reveals lately, sharing almost all of the main cast of Autobots and a few Decepticons, including Megatron himself. Today they've shared one Autobot that we're all familiar with, Bumblebee! He's been the star of the past 4 Bayverse movies, and he returns for the Last Knight with a brand new Camaro alt mode, and a re-vamped robot mode! It doesn't look too different than his previous robot forms, especially his look in Age Of Extinction. However, you can see some different elements from his new Camaro mode now included. He appears to have that retracting battle mask feature, same as his previous incarnations. Check him out below!

Leave your thoughts in the comments, do.you.like this design more or less than his 2010 design? Or his Age Of Extinction design? And remember to keep those optics and audio sensors tuned to Seibertron.com for all the latest and greatest Transformers news.

Looks like an atypical and almost recognizable design for Bumblebee from his previous incarnations in the Bayverse at least. I wonder if they're going to change his look again for his solo movie. Gotta sell those toys.

I can see the dressing room now...

"Alright 'Bee, the costume designer wants to go back to your old outfit, it's what the audience knows. I'm thinkin' classic! I'm thinkin' iconic! It's so YOU, baby! Yeah! Okay here's your motivation: you realized that you copied the look of the guy who was trying to be a copy-cat of you, and that's not really a good message for the kids, so you decided to go back to being yourself. BEE yourself, hey that's good... Get marketing on that, make it a hashtag... Oh, forgot to tell ya, we changed your bra again, nbd, you know the drill." ;)^

I cant tell if he is that different from first glance. Looks like a movie bumblebee model like all the others, to me.

Very nice, I just hope he is not the last knight... and actually die at the beginning, just like Ratchet, Ironhide and leadfoot, so rodimus can take his place.

Between the first three films and AOE they changed the design quite a bit. This one looks to be a combination of the two. In AOE all of his parts were fitted very close to each other and streamlined to look very organic, or at least not like an identifiable car. The big difference, here, is the chest piece which is more identifiable as a car bumper split in two like his original designs. The other thing is that the face mask is basically the one from AOE.

Personally, I'd like for them to go more classic and vehicle like with all of these designs, since it's still hard to tell what they actually turn into. Crosshair and Megatron especially. I also really, really, really despise the transformations in the 4th movie where the decepticons just explode into bits and reform. So, I hope they put the kabosh on that.

That's gonna be a bit difficult when the movie after this is called "The Bumblebee Movie".

Well, they really went back some to his first trilogy design, even got the door wings back. I did really like the AoE design and I'm a bit sad they went backwards from it. But at least he has the wings again, I like those

I personally never see much of a difference between the movie Bumblebees, at least not in robot mode. I can see the differences in Optimus; AoE was a design overhaul for him, but... Bumblebee? I'm not denying there's changes, I just don't really see them.

Bumblebee is growing up fast. In the first movie he was 16.2 feet tall, now he's 18 and taller than Drift. So much for being the runt of the team.

Wow, fumblebee is every kind of underwhelming, I honestly couldn't tell if this was a new design or not without images of his other forms sitting in front of me (I can at least tell that it isn't the newer aoe version, that one was at least cool looking)
Re: Transformers 5: The Last Knight Bumblebee revealed! (1814723)
Posted by YRQRM0 on August 12th, 2016 @ 6:20pm CDT
I really wasn't feeling his AOE version, this is a welcome return to something closer to his first forms.
Re: Transformers 5: The Last Knight Bumblebee revealed! (1814725)
Posted by MediaMan18 on August 12th, 2016 @ 6:25pm CDT
I really have to ask, what's the point of turning him into Galvatron in AOE if they were going to turn him back in TLK? Doesn't it kind of defeat the purpose of Megatron becoming Galvatron? Hell, his last line in the previous film was "I am reborn", thus implying that he's still Galvatron. Not helped by the fact that, in general, I don't care for the redesign. The whole knight aesthetic may have worked for Prime and the Dinobots, but not for the ruthless and maniacal overlord with a cannon on his arm who is bent on destroying all who stands in his way. And I really don't like the horn thing going on with his helmet; retracted, it makes him look like a goat, but deployed, he just looks like the Dreads from DOTM, who look like the Predator. In short, this doesn't make sense contextually and doesn't work from a design stand-point.

Its all one big blurr to me. I didnt even notice that he didnt even have wings in AOE.

I can tell it much more on Optimus.

At the very least people can tell his chest is different with each movie right?


I think story wise Bumblebee keeps upgrading his disguise because he is a vain character remember when he went and scanned a new car mode after Mikela called him a piece of crap?

His chest was different between ROTF and DOTM?

I dont think people can tell that easily. Could you tell which movie this bee is from for instance?

That one's either from the first one or ROTF. I don't know the differences between his chest in the first one and ROTF, but I do know that in DOTM, his chest was compacted a tiny bit and had two arm/bar/lever things going across the bottom of the two car front half boob things. That's far from a technical description, but they are fairly obvious if you compare the two. The difference between the first 3 movies' Bumblebee and AOE Bumblebee are way more obvious, of course.

That picture above is movie 1 Bee, as you can tell by the smaller circular lights below the main headlights.

RotF Bee had more rectangular lower lights:

DotM Bee had those extra Ab bits:

AoE had the ninja look minus the wings replaced with throwing star like things:

That's the TF1 design. ROTF Bumblebee had black squares around his fog lights or whatever, and DOTM Bublebee had extra pieces covering his chest/abdomen area.

Earlier this past week on Tuesday August 9th, I was part of a small group of Transformers fans who were invited to visit the set of Transformers 5 The Last Knight near Detroit, MI. In addition to getting a sneak peak at some of the massive sets and getting to meet Michael Bay himself, we got some personal time with some of the real stars of the movie ... the Transformers themselves! Each gallery below includes multiple shots of each vehicle that we got to see from the heroic Autobots Bumblebee, Drift, and Optimus Prime to the evil Decepticons Onslaught and Barricade! Click on an image below to view a gallery of that respective character's alt mode. Please note that each vehicle has its own unique gallery in our ongoing Transformers Movie related gallery section.

In case you missed it earlier this week, we also posted some walkaround videos of the vehicles on our YouTube channel, which you can view by clicking here.

Special thanks again and much appreciation to Paramount for orchestrating our set visit. What an amazing experience!

Yes for example the pic you have is movie one and not even a final render at that.


Here is a real render of Movie 1 Bee

Image


Here is ROTF and DOTM respectively with similar poses/renders.

Image


Image


Chest's are different and Bumblebee's shoulders are larger in DOTM and this was stated by people who worked on the movie during DOTM and they said it was to show how more mature Bee was at that point.


The differences are pretty obvious Bumblebee is never exactly the same in each movie.

I mean, to be fair, they're not that obvious unless you're actually looking for differences.

If it wasn't already for the fact that the Combaticons in this don't appear to be combat vehicles....i would've half expected that Hummer to be Swindle, maybe one of the Apache Helicopters spotted to be Vortex ect, as for Onslaught....maybe he will during the course of the movie....scan a military vehicle of some sorts(we've already SEEN different vehicles ect scanned during the course of the previous films by various characters....Optimus, Bee, The Twins, Megatron, Soundwave & Lazerbeak).

The changes on Bee are always easy to spot why is everyone saying stuff like this I don't get it like what the heck.

Maybe because he really doesn't look that different from his "original" design? Jeez o peets dude, back off a little.

I think it was one shot deal and he took the name of Megatron back after he got his upgrades/new body. I know it's very interchangeable in the Unicron Trilogy from what I've heard and read, so maybe the same applies here in some ways for the Bayverse.

Like Burn said, we won't know until the movie, but that's kind of like my prediction of sorts. Saw someone suggest Megs would have apprehension to the Galvatron name in this case because it was the one granted to him by humans/KSI during his rebuild and not his idea. Simultaneously there appears to be not as much discontinuity between the names/personality in this canon like in G1 for example.

I have a question about Barricade :CON:.
In the recent pics that were taken on the set the saying on his car mode is "Keep calm and hail Megatron".
But I noticed in all those pics and videos that were posted while they were filming in Arizona, it said his old saying "To Punish and Enslave". Was it changed and is there a reason why? I hope it has to do with the story and not anything to do with "recent events" in the news. Does anyone else have any insights, and opinions on this?

I think he might be onto something. The old motto doesn't read too well, considering the recent events involving police shootings in the U.S., justified or not. They probably changed it to avoid a PR fiasco.

In the recent pics that were taken on the set the saying on his car mode is "Keep calm and hail Megatron".
But I noticed in all those pics and videos that were posted while they were filming in Arizona, it said his old saying "To Punish and Enslave". Was it changed and is there a reason why? I hope it has to do with the story and not anything to do with "recent events" in the news. Does anyone else have any insights, and opinions on this?


If I recall correctly, whatever events happen in the UK in the movie is what impacts this.
