    Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa....

    Let's get to the main issue here first. Where'd those figures of Smokescreen, Prime, and Arcee come from in that picture?

    "Red or dead?" Isn't that kind of harsh? The movie's a re-imagining of Transformers, and lots of your old stand-bys are going to be different. Plus didn't the movie-makers already confirm that his bot mode will be mostly red? Get over it.

    Okay, two things:

    1.) Such a campaign will NEVER work, for the reasons stated above. It's kind of premature to be THAT upset over the colors for the character, especially since we haven't see the actual robot mode yet. Additionally, the one trait I think this fan community needs more of is tolerance and understanding; just let it go.

    2.) I HIGHLY doubt that Optimus Prime would be considered "one of the greatest icons in world history." I mean, seriously. Think about how silly that sounds for a second.

    That's a picture I did for the artwork on the Palisades statues packaging, but only Prime was in the picture used.

    I'm not sure "red or dead" is an either-or question. Being the former in the 1986 movie certainly didn't save him from the later!

    I do hope you got permission to do that to George's pic. if it was one of mine and you hadn't, I'd be wanting to tear your face off about now.

    I'm cool with him being a differeny color as long as it's not stupid. Silver and/or other darker colors would be alright. As long as he's not lime green or whatever.
    I think I'd be more dissapointed by Cullen not voicing him than him not being red.
    Or even him not being a truck at all seems like a much larger issue.
    The flames would definitely need to go though.

    We all saw the truck... he looked red and blue... the same colors he has been for hundreds of years.

    And respect artist's copyrights... Especially if you plan to use them in some kind of letter-writing campaign.

    If this was the World of Warcraft forums I would usually respond to something like this with /TLDR or QQ /cry more noob.

    Somehow I'm much, much more inspired by nkelsch's signature than jono pic. I'm okay with reimagining the story (hell, I'm watching Armada all over again, and loving it) and I'm okay with a new Prime, as long as he's sufficiently red for recognition in robot mode.

    I think Michael Bay stopped listening to the fans as soon as he recognized the concepts of "franchise" and "blockbuster" for this film.

    ...and for that reason, I think we'll see whatever the hell he wants us to see.

    How it this still going on???

    And you wonder why Bay won't release any footage of the final bot modes of the transformes? Not because he wants to spoil the surprise, he just doesn't want to be responsible for a mass suicide of genwuners.

    Give your dam head a shake! "Red or dead" Op was never totally red anyway. Even if you look at the pic you ripped off, there is hardly any red on him.

    Jeez, just be happy that they are making a movie....
