    Yeah, irony abounds.

    Movie Bee looks nothing like G1 Bee, now he looks too much like G1 Bee.

    It may be a legitimate complaint that a character's visual traits matter. I wish Ratchet wasn't tinted green, that Starscream didn't have a birdface. But on the other hand, where Bee is concerned I dislike his ballgag mouth, but I like his insect look with the antenna and car-wings.

    It varies with people after all. All we can do now is wait for the film designs to be released.

    And I never said that is what the general public's reaction to a change in writers was, but IF Kruger had been a writer for Transformers 5 I can almost guarantee the final product would have been more in line with the threads from the previous film, and the global audience, which came out in droves for the previous films, probably would have supported the fifth movie much more than they did. Especially China.

    Hahahahaha. Yeah, because the fan base who was so critical of Kruger was always 100% behind the writer's room. :rolleyes2 

    Transformers has ALWAYS been "big and stupid." It's never been not stupid. There's no way to make Transformers not stupid to most normal people without major changes to the core concepts (and much bigger than any changes the Bay movies made), and the Bay movies are the closest Transformers is to being accepted by the general public as normal. Most fans don't even want something good. Most fans want something that fits into a nostalgic comfort zone.

    The movies are no more silly than any other version of the brand. Anyone who thinks otherwise is kidding themselves. The silliest things in the Bay films are no more silly than the silliest things in G1, IDW, Beast Wars, Animated, Prime, etc.

    Revenge of the Fallen may not have a good script, but it has a story. In fact, if anything it was probably much better than it could have been given the circumstances.

    Almost forgot....
    As for the posted head design; though simplistic, I don't mind it if the story is well rendered. It still looks like movie Bumblebee to me, so whatever.

    I could hardly tell the difference honestly. Same with whatever change Optimus apparently underwent between ROTF and DOTM.

    Well...I collect those overpriced statues and figures. After a while one develops a useless sensitivity to the subtle changes.

    He got abbs I think. In his chest area. That is it if I remember correctly (obviously besides his trailer upgrade).

    He got the abs and the red panel leading up to his elbow is a bit different.

    I get the feeling that something is missing, or something happened while I was away.

    Is it wrong to somewhat hope that the front end of the VW beetle makes up his feet and the rear end makes his chest?

    I'd be down for that. I'd miss his grill/headlight chest though. That's kinda been an iconic movie Bee thing so far.

    People up there who says he need his plug being removed are dumb. It's the thing we all love in Bumblebee - being mouthless and cute. And y'all trying to turn everything into G1 ugliness don't you...

    Well g1 wasn't the only time he had a mouth.

    I was hoping his new voice in Tlk would have had a mouth to go with it. Since it didn't, we have no way of knowing if he'll have his voice in this one or not.

    We must also remember he had the plug during WWII, which takes place before the events of this movie. Which means it would be odd for him to have the plug, loose it, and then have it again. Thus it's better he has it now as well.

    That's true. I didn't think of that. Still hope he has his voice for this one. There's nothing that really says he won't right?
