    Anobody else a bit dissapointed that sentenel primes design/body was not used as a new form for optimus prime?
    It would have been great to have a optimus prime as a firetruck again just like in RID. RID Prime still is still one of the coolest prime desigs ever!

    They could have given sentinel a more cybertronian form instead.

    I've always preferred Optimus to have a firetruck alt mode, as firefighting is a heroic profession fitting his heroic nature. But to have Sentinel have a more Cybertronian alt mode would be terrible, given the dismal nature of all the Cybertronian alt modes Bay has given us.

    I'm more disappointed in the choice to use Ferrari for Mirage. If Bay had just used one of Mercedes' sports cars instead we wouldn't have the Ferrari guys jerking around the production by demanding to choose the design, the voice and the name.

    Imagine the disdain from the general "dumb" public who will be like "OMG WHATS HAPPENED I DONT KNOW WHATS GOING ON?!?" if they changed someone's mode in between films.

    I'm literally priming myself to hear such things as "OMG WHERES MEGAN FOX?" and old people saying " i have no idea who's who or whats happening..."

    Haven't they already done that several times? Bumblebee switched alt modes in the middle of the first movie, Starscream got tattoos, Ratchet is getting his new paint job, and Megatron has had a different alt mode in all three films. Just saying.

    Granted they have altered stuff a little.

    However, Bee's switch was being watched. Tattoo's are just an addition as is Ratchet's new greener paint. Megatron is easily recognizable in all 3 really.

    Oh, I'm not trying to start an argument. I'm just saying that changes in alt modes is not a new thing to the movie-verse.

    Getting back to the topic, I'm thankful that Optimus has not had his form changed. I really like his Peterbilt mode, and for me at least, he will always be a semi-truck.

    I wouldn't have been against it. But I don't really feel like it was a missed opportunity either.

    OP could be a firetruck but not that rosebeaur it doesn't fit him. I am happy with him being a truck anyways and Sentinel should not keep his cyebrtronian form that would be so boring too me. I hate Bay's cybetronian modes.

    I really don't see the point of him getting a new alt-mode.
