    You know what would be really awesome?

    For this movie to open with Wheeljack and Bumblebee, just like G1 did.

    Yes please! I imagine it will open with the battle between Blitzwing and Bumblebee and we'll see Cybertron in flashback, but it would be great if they included Wheeljack and Bumblebee together.

    Good catch; thank you!

    Great to have Que back, if even for a second.

    Wheeljack? Dude, if we get a G1-esque scene with Bee and Jackie, I may just faint from giddiness.

    I really do think this isn't a prequel per se, but more of a parallel universe in the same settings.

    I'm so freaking happy right now.

    When I saw this I thought it could be Prowl or Wheeljack. Maybe this is him. Screenshot_20180924-121909_Chrome.jpg

    As long as it's Wheeljack and not that Que thing, I'll be happy.

    I wouldn't say it was the worst, but it does rank up there.

    Technically it was Steven Spielberg's.

    Not surprised to hear that Wheeljack will also apear... now. I mean, if they showed us THAT many characters just in the trailer(s), I can only imagine how many more will be momentarily spotted in the movie itself. I'd bet folding money that we're even going to see a giant GREEN Devastator during one of those Cybertron shots. I'm sure now that Knight got a green light to throw in everything and the kitchen sink, he's gonna get in as many characters as he can just in case he doesn't get another shot at one of these movies.

    I mean, it'd be nice if Wheeljack actually appeared.

    But he also says in the same article that Blitzwing appears in his "original, first generation form", and we haven't seen that at all yet.

    Wheeljack in G1 design could be awesome !

    Even I hope we will see some cameos of others Transformers in their G1 version:

    Jazz
    Sideswipe
    Drift
    Hound
    Ironhide
    Ratchet
    Grimlock
    Megatron
    Constructicons
    Brawl
    Onslaught
    And... Starscream

    Of course, could be gorgeous if they add some Autobots and Decepticons we haven't seen yet like Prowl, Star Saber or Astrotrain

    "One of the things we do in animation is try to evoke an idea or a feeling just with something’s silhouette. You can see in this film how with the two Decepticon heavies you have these big, muscular cars these angular aircraft and then you see them go up against this round, warm shape of a VW beetle. Just in the shape language you can evoke a certain feeling.”

    This is more thought in design and character than anything Bay chose because it "looks badass".
