    As most of you may already read, it is said that TF4 will be Bay's last TF movie. It is also said that TF4 will feature new character designs. This may be dramatic changes to their designs or just tweaks.

    With that being said, how would you change the main TF characters DESIGNS? Not characters in general, just their designs in TF4.

    Yeah

    Yeah one more movie. That means soon no having to hear complaining about Bayverse. YAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYY
    :bay :bay :bay :bay :bay :bay :bay 

    Sorry got a little crazy for a second. I know that people will still find stuff to complain about anyway and I do kind of like the movies.


    Anyway to answer your question I would like to see a bit of both.

    I'd like to see more humanoid robots, even if it's more G1 styled heads.

    I want to see Hasbro stomp their foot down and have them be High-Moon style.

    Just so we get less confusing designs, even with his camerawork.

    Nothing major, maybe a few tweaks to current designs.

    Perhaps a hybrid of the WFC/FOC style crossed between the Prime style with hints of the IDW ongoing designs.

    I want to keep the current designs, with minor tweaks.

    None of this Prime/FoC crossover nonsense.

    Nothing major unless they prepared to explain it off (in the movie that is).

    If it's the same continuity, be it prequel or sequel, then just tweaks. Color changes (i.e. Ratchet takes on the Rescue Ratchet colors) wouldn't be a bad thing either.

    Different continuity, different designs.

    In the end, NEW TOYS. So it's a win-win situation. :D 

    (Yeah, I know there's a chance they could turn out to be shit, but I'm optimistic here.)

    Sequel: update the surviving 'Bots' alt-modes and their robot-modes accordingly.

    Reboot: Same or similar aesthetic, new designs.

    In either case, I'd also use these four as the bar for translating their traditional design elements into the Movie aesthetic:

    Well, yeah, there's other examples, but these four were the ones that stood out the most to me.

    Pretty much my idea. Providing it's in the same continuity, these "redesigns" will probably be no more or less how Optimus/Bumblebee/Sideswipe/Ratchet changed between RotF and DotM. Slight tweaks and design alterations merely to necessitate the newer vehicle models or to make them "look more mature and heroic". I could be wrong though.

    +1 :thumbs2:  I've always felt that the likes of those you posted would work very well if that "standard of translation" was used for most other characters. I'm not saying everything needs to be G1 (I love Bayformers Ironhide's design, for example), but having a few more characters designed like that might help lessen the fan rage. ... Oh, who am I kidding? :p
