    Oh god please no.

    The truck is nice, but there's enough of those exaggerated body builder / muscle man / buff superhero look in other cartoons already, and Transformers doesn't need it. For me, it looks downright silly and childish.

    It's the absurd teeny biceps/waist/thighs that make it look really awkward. Also the TF: Prime "Shiny Lego face".

    The truck is bitchin' though. No complaints there.

    I kind of hope they go for something like what Don Figueroa did for his run off the IDW art.

    No more predator-like design.

    Um, no. I can recall scenes where they literally focus on a Transformer's transformation in the movies. Bumblebee transforming in front of Sam and Mikaela in TF1, Optimus entering the city in TF1, Bee transforming to protect Sam from triggerhappy guards in DOTM... it's okay you don't like the designs, and I don't blame you for wanting something different, but they DO show the transformations multiple times, and the scenes I'm referencing are just scenes where they put direct focus on the vehicle turning into the robot.

    That quote was totally out of context. I wasn't even talking about Transformers at that point, I was comparing them to the 2017 Power Rangers Megazord which in fact did not transform on camera. The five ranger zords fell into a pit, transformed off screen and emerged again as the Megazord. I never said anything about actual Transformers transforming off screen only that it looks fake as hell because they aren't physically possible.

    I want Arcee, if she'll ever make it to the live movie, to be a convertible like in G1. Deluxe sized bot, not the Legends or Scout sized one.
