    ABOUT TRANSFORMERS BUMBLEBEE MOVIE PREQUEL: FROM CYBERTRON WITH LOVE

    Fan-favorite Autobot Bumblebee is recruited for a top secret mission, and 1960s London won’t know what hit it when this robot in disguise goes undercover.

    It’s high-tech, high-octane, high-clearance spy hijinks in From Cybertron with Love.


    Some call him Goldfender, but the name’s Bee… Bumblebee. On loan to MI6 and teamed with a human partner, Bee’s trapped in the middle of a Cold War plot to disrupt British Secret Intelligence. But when their base is destroyed from within, it’s up to Bee to discover if there’s a traitor in their midst…and, in the spy world, allegiances can change just as easily as a Cybertronian.

    From long-time Transformers writer and British super spy aficionado John Barber (Optimus Prime, Action Man), From Cybertron With Love is the official prequel to the new Bumblebee film, in theaters December 2018.

    I love that Bumblebee design, blending movie and G1. It's a shame he won't look like that in the Bumblebee movie, because I'd be all over an MP movie BB that looked like that.

    So I guess we're all in agreement that Bee's face is good-looking?

    Cool.

    I wonder if we'll see this in the movie via a flashback.

    Okay well Bumblbee was already on earth in the first movie and it was never established how long he was there so it can fit with anything and it’s by John Barber who is a continuity fixer.

    Also no one is forcing you to read anything

    Looks fine. I’m confident that this’ll fill some major plot holes. I don’t like that, it’s lazy. I need some beautifully thick thighs.

    Not a fan of the face. Makes him look too old.

    Damn, I'm loving that look! Looks like a pretty well done design in between G1 and the live action films. Can't wait to get this! Also, love the artwork!

    What a lovely cover.

    God damn that Bee looks perfect, if only his actual movie design looked like that.

    Until you recall that Sector 7 was acting as if they were encountering BB for the first time in the first movie so there's no way any of them could see him before TF2007 or that Allies military could work with him in WWII because militaries use to keep records of their actions.


    So I won't, don't panic. Wipe your tears etc.

    TLK continuity and their secret history of TFs should wither in oblivion without being propagated in any way.

    Barber can't fix it because nobody can atm. The best he can do is to avoid any mentions of what was in TLK so it looks like it's more in line with DoTM.
