    Is it safe to say Bumblebee and prime will get killed off in TF4 as they said new robots and figures will be for TF4.

    Would you all be happy for them both to be killed off on set.?

    Bumblebee I probably wouldn't blink an eye over, especially if he goes out at the beginning/opening of the movie doing something both fantastic and heroic. He'd have a proper sendoff while leaving a spot for a new bot.

    Op, on the other hand, I would be pissed about.

    That said, who's to say they'll get killed off.

    I hope Hasbro doesn't pull a GI Joe 2 and kill everyone off right when the movie starts. That would really piss me off.

    Prime and Bumblebee are the two Autobots who won't die no matter how hard you want them to. The former's death in the original G1 movie caused such a backlash that even bringing him back in the end didn't keep G1's original run alive. Hence why in every series since, Optimus Prime never stays dead (Optimus Primal doesn't count since he's not actually Optimus Prime).

    As for Bumblebee...you really think Hasbro will kill off the guy they think is the most popular character in the movies? Even with the admission they finally made in realizing that having a toyline that's literally half filled with nothing but Bumblebee variants is a bad idea, they're NOT going to kill him off. Paramount won't allow it, Chevy sure as hell won't allow it (they're making a mint off of selling Bumblebee-ized versions of his real life alt. mode), and pretty much everybody else involved with the movies won't allow it.

    I don't think either character will get killed off. Instead they will just come up with some excuse to change the alt modes around and/or an excuse to change the bot modes so that Hasbro isn't attempting to sell the same figure they have been selling for too long.

    Heck there is even a tiny chance that they might drop radio speak for a Bumblebee that can actually talk.

    They won't kill them off. However, what they will do is reduce the amount of Bumblebee and Prime repaints in the lines down to a minimum, because they finally realized THAT'S A BAD IDEA.

    As for the new cast they keep talking about, I predict a reduced, core cast of characters, especially on the Decepticon side.

    I don't think they'll remove them completely. I think they'll just take more of a secondary role this time around in both merchandising and in the film.

    I think Bumblebee is safe. Optimus is safe for at least Transformers 4. If they're going to kill him permanently, then it would be for the best if they saved it for the last movie and if we saw Optimus mentoring a young Autobot in the movies leading up to the finale to take his place. It would be a good build up and a potentially good pay-off.

    I like the idea of killing them on set, except they aren't real. So I don't think they ever are on set.

    The 'new characters' will be Goldbug and Magnus, with new colors on pre-existing CG models.

    So many decepticons have been slaughtered in the three movies and I think that would balance it out quite nicely.

    Ginrai and Hubcap or I'm not on board with this idea. Don't even need to change the color schemes then.
