    Bumblebee had 2017 camaro kibble in his robot mode, but transforms into a 1980's Volkswagen bug?

    I'm likely in the minority here, but I didn't like Bee's kibble not matching his alt mode in WWII scene.

    I didn't really notice the kibble, so it doesn't make much difference to me.

    It would bother me a bit. I’ve forgiven some of the older Camaro parts left on his newer robot modes simply because they could seen to be parts that have eventually integrated into the robot mode (Evasion Optimus, Hound and Drift’s designs are all guilty of this). But as this movie is most definitely set before the others, there shouldn’t be anything Camaro-ish on him. The WW2 design was a typical Bayverse fudge; basing the robot on one type of vehicle but not changing it even when the vehicle had completely changed.

    Of course, the director will hopefully be less willing to allow these things to slip through than Michael Bay has been.

    I'm counting on Travis Knight too, but I've always felt these movies are never given enough time to finish. And because of that they're forced to re-use models.

    It would bother me a little, but not enough to need to vent about it.

    Not for your main character who's deliberately meant to look different.

    That really, really bothered me considering two seconds later they flashed back and showed Hot Rod with totally different kibble.

    They had the model. They just purposely chose the wrong one.

    For backround characters yes. But not characters that have or had main roles in the movies.

    That would be like if DotM Meg's exact character model was used with RotF Meg's tank mode. It just wouldn't work.
