    I remember that one. I'm going to have to give it a new name.

    That would be disappointing if that was the case.

    Still not sure how two car bots could combine into a jet or chopper though I do like the idea of these two as Duocon combiners of some sort. I really like Battleslash and Roadtrap as toys and them combining is a neat gimmick. Making Shatter and Dropkick as Deluxe Duocons would be cool for more complex engineering.

    As for the F4 Phantom, I hope he's still Starscream and I believe he still will be given the very Seeker-ish head sculpt.

    But seeing how this movie only features four main bots - Bumblebee, Starscream, Shatter, and Dropkick - that leaves little room for others like Barricade, which is my fear. Thinking Barricade will be just a cameo to set up a possible sequel like the much rumored Optimus cameo.

    I dug the designs till I heard they were triple changers. Especially if they’re going to be car, robot and aircraft. Unless they have to combine so they have enough mass to form a helicopter/jet between them it’s super dumb.

    The flight mode parts on Blue being smaller than the car tires is pretty funny though. Unless it turns into a model plane that scale just ain’t working.

    Looking closely at dropkick's face it kinda looks similar to shatter's, maybe they are brothers or something like that?

    Brother and sister (Dropkick is voiced by a male and Shatter is supposedly female voiced by a female), fraternal twins maybe?

    Absolutely not. Unless they've got 4th and 5th modes and more kibble hidden away. You can't make an F-4 out of Harrier and helicopter parts. No more than you could combine Sideswipe and Ironhide and get Bumblebee...

    Maybe because they brought them back after a two-movie absence?
    I expected something more. But I suppose the James Bond parody should have been my first warning.

    Also, I liked the previous movie prequel comics.

    They FINALLY decided to officially add in my Third Party Knock off.

    Seriously though, this seems interesting .

    Same thought as mine lol

    Maybe they’ll double dip on these characters if they can’t make a proper triple changer (lets be honest, they can’t)

    Given that apparently one of the script code names for these characters was "the Lovers" I would certainly hope not.

    For some reason I really hope shatter has a pony tail, that I think would just look cool. Also has anyone figured out what the go with the wings?

    when on screen together with BB, they will form the primary colors :p 

    I'm going to watch this movie and I have nothing against Travis Knight. Kubo was a good movie...

    but lmk if I'm wrong... this upcoming movie is not related to Bayverse? What is this BB movie exactly going to be about? Other than girl getting new car which happens to be a transformer?

    Is BB here to find Megatron or a Witwicky? Why are there two Decepticon muscle cars and what are they doing on earth as the main antagonists?

    PS... bet you they will both die by the end of this movie.
