    That article needs to shut its filthy mouth. Skids and Mudflap were awesome.

    I wonder how "extensive" these makeovers will be. Similar to their "makeovers" from TF1 to TF2?

    Well damn. At least this gives the designers another shot at making Optimus, but imagine how Hasbro and Takara are going to handle more Bumblebees...

    Prime is an obvious one, and will probably incorporate some kind of power armor. Will be interesting to see if they will let go of the flames as well. I kinda like them, but I'm still curious to what a 'normal' colors Prime would look like.

    As for Bumblebee...Really do wonder what they will do with him. Maybe make him black and yellow stripes, like in that concept art. I can't see them going on an extensive retooling with him.

    EDIT: Well that teaches me to read the article first. :lol  Still, will be interesting to see what they will do.

    Cool. That means the toys for TF2 will look more different from the last line.

    Hopefully this means Bumblebee will get an actual face, get rid of the gag-ball sex helmet and stop talking like a sad puppy dog.

    If it's only going to be 'suttle' changes I don't think that means new paintjobs, as that's a rather significant change for a CG model, and more than just fanboys would notice that.

    "They believe that Bumblebee has matured through the first two films and will receive an update to make his physique look more mature, while Optimus Prime's update will make him look more heroic."

    What the Hell does that even mean?

    Slight changes to character models just means an excuse for kids to want more toys of the same characters. Oh yeah, and dorks like me too......d'oh.

    Prime and Bumblebee to get subtle changes? Just hope that it's subtle and not an extensive makeover; plus, I'm sure that this will give Hasbro enough reasons to come out with newer figures of the two characters for the TF3 toy-line.

    They're trying to state that Bumblebee is undergoing the human equivalent of "growing up". As he matures, he has the potential to develop his body and/or grow just like a teenager or develop his body further like an adult can with exercise.

    Hmmm. Some of his visual ques are large round eyes and a round face which give him a very child like appearance. I wonder if they plan on squaring up his face and jaw a bit? Giving him smaller more stern eyes, wider shoulders, longer looking legs and a stronger taper to his waist.

    All would suggest a more adult physique in the heroic vein of appearances.

    I hope they don't change too much about Optimus since he already looks pretty bad ass. I hated the flames before but I love them now. I hope they stay.
