    Highly doubt they will speak cybertronian, but having them speak english wont destroy continuity, because they could easily be speaknig cybertronian, but the dialogue is translated for us to understand what they are saying

    And that's what I get for playing that straight, especially in a written format.

    Aside from the Bumblebee movie and the monkey king crossover, I'm really anticipating the cybertron animated film.

    I hope they use heavy references from the transformers defiance. I love the protoforms and they're spoken lines in the film.

    The last time we saw protoforms (is there cybertronian forms and protoforms?) was the short scene in TF3. It was short, but epic.

    But who will direct? And given the lack of much continuity, will the protoforms from the TF1 be changed with human faces? I hope not.

    The idea of protoforms was a good move in this franchise. It served as a reminder just how alien they are.

    I don't expect much from the studios anymore after tf5, but if we can see more of this I'll be ecstatic.

    I really don't like the protoform modes. They all look the same. Changing that from being their normal Cybertronian design is one big retcon I wouldn't mind.

    Hey it works for Disney. How else do you explain an English man and a Native American woman understanding each other perfectly when encountering each other for the very first time?

    They can easily make each one unique, like the comics. I would expect a blend between the comic and the movie protoforms designs.

    From the comic panel you posted, they all look very similar besides the heads and slight changes in hue.

    True, but it's an improvement that can help distinguish who's who.

    In TF3 they all looked the same, not that it mattered to me, but I can see your point here.

    I haven't read the comics but surely there's a cybertronian form and a protoform mode. The protoform mode is the only one we've seen in the movies.
