This post may indirectly give away some movie spoilers, so read at your own risk. I've been in a lot of discussions lately with people who think that, based on the current TF designs we've seen so far, that they may end up morphing more than actually transforming per se. This theory is mainly due to the designs we've seen of Prime and Megatron. Prime in robot mode, only based on what we've seen so far, has virtually nothing resembling the sheer bulk or mechanics of his alt truck mode. Hardly any right angles or corners, just pieces scattered randomly all over him. And the same thing with Megatron. Even with his alt mode being some sort of alien looking Cybertronian jet, his robot form suggests nothing to the effect that he actually transforms into something mechanically vehicular in nature (alien or not). Then there's the situation with how Bumblebee changes from a classic Camero to a new Camero in the movie. Based on the leaked (supposedly outdated) script, it has nothing to do with being blown apart and/or rebuilt. The main character kids in the movie make fun of his car mode being an old pile of shit, so BB scans a new Camero and modifies himself on the spot. The way it's explained in the script is that all the dents & scratched paint just kind of disappear, flush out & brighten - and then voila! - he's a new car. Based on those factors, it kind of makes sense why the transforming vs morphing debate has been brought up by people. Transforming as we typically know it means parts shift position, move around, etc. to make a new form. Whereas morphing is basically just a process of blending & bending from one form to another (ie: the T-1000 or whatever it was called in Terminator 2) that looks liquid in nature. So, if Bay & ILM take the morphing approach instead of the usual transforming process that I'm sure most of us expect, how will TF fans will react to it? I know it would piss me off something aweful, but I'm worried that all the people who are so easily convinced by the TF movie team of spin doctors pushing & emphasizing the "but they're *alien*" arguement will just let it go without debate... IF it happens that is. I dunno... comment or thoughts?
