    Just hypothetically speaking (to the folks who still aren't happy with the designs especially)... Would you trade Peter being the voice for Prime for all of the other things you wanted....

    Say for example, we could have designs and heads that resembled G1 more etc etc.

    I'm very happy with the direction the movie is taking, but for those that aren't would you have lost Prime's Voice for the visual movie you were envisioning.

    Please no flames, it's just a question for discussion.

    i'd keep him... and have frank voicing a decepticon. rumble maybe
    they shoulda kept the G1 head designs more traditional that's
    just me... the flames on prime should go he should have his trailer
    hopefully we see it in the second movie

    I can see this getting pretty ugly but here goes...

    I for one am glad that we at least have Cullen. I always liked his voice as Prime. Every other voice to me is a toss up as long as they do justice to the character.

    I am also not overly concerned with the current design aesthetic...

    Nah I think the movie is fine as is. Cullen is one of the great things about it.

    I wouldn't trade anything at all, this movie is perfect so far.

    For the most part I'm satisfied with most of the aspects of the film and especially cullen. Though I would change BB's face and the 'no talking' shtick and Frenzy's head and arms (they coulda made the face more 'humanoid' and he doesn't really need four forearms) but other then that there's nothing I don't like.

    Edit: Oh, almost forgot Jazz's magic starfish hands. An otherwise awesome design with completely non-sensible fingers.

    I am curious, what would be the point of Prime having his trailer in the movie? It really didn't have a point in the old show or comic. Heck on TF:TM commentary they admitted they never had a clue what to do about the trailer.

    This is a very good question.

    No, I'd rather have Cullen. Well, and no lips on Prime, but I'm ok with the rest pretty much.

    I'm actually one of the people who is not entirely happy with the movie designs. Besides Bumblebee, Prime and Barricade I pretty much hate all of them. I feel that the look is sacriledge and blasphemous to the G1 characters as well as Transformers as a whole. They didn't need to change the design asthetic from the basic theme Transformers has always held, maybe just update it some to give the character better articulation. "Believable" articulation as most Pro-movie design people will fight you all day about. That being said, and this IS my point.....Even though I dislike them..I would never trade the voice and identity/character that Cullen's voice has given Prime. It IS Prime. It's more important than how he looks to me. Because Cullen has made Prime the character he is, even if he didn't know the impact he made at the time.

    Nope, not a chance. I however stand with those not concerned by designs. I can see how the new designs will appeal to a lot of new fans. Would I like the designs I have grown to love, sure. But it is the character that counts.

    I wouldn't even trade cullen if this movie was a transformer mylittlepony crossover movie.

    Cullen's voice as prime is just magic in auditory form.

    damn it ........:cry  im already getting emotional.

    just leave me
    leave me alone.

    no i dont want to talk about it anymore. ( how dare they even pose the question )

    I'd trade out Cullen AND keep the designs as they are now.

    Yeah, but can you imagine the blocky robot/car styles that G1 had on the big screen.

    Peter is fine, a nice nod to the past. Even though I think the lips are silly I’m not to hung up about them.
