    Interesting they chose a Lamborghini for hist although mode. Like sideswipe should have been in the first place. Why does this look like a bumble bee redeco and then actually have Been mentioned in the bio. They could've been more original with his alt mode, it seems like the design team just sits around and goes "what's fast, what do the kids like? Lamborghini? Bingo."

    This feels super odd how we have a robot render update already and the first one revealed isnt OP or Bee...but a character fans have wanted in this universe for a long time now.

    I like the design, as it follows AOE's approach of less complexity to robot mode and we actually have car parts on him. Big question though; where has his vehicle mode been on set?

    So if it's legit, I wonder if he's the "last knight", and going to end up as rodimus.

    The one thing that stands out to me is the lights under his arms on his sides. Those done seem to match the lamb design some think he is.

    I must've missed that, anyone have a link?

    Rear lights on the backs of his thighs too, kind of the back of the side panels.

    He just looks so boring, especially for a character who was originally so flashy, even personality wise.

    I think this is the first main Autobot design out of all the movies that I don't actually like.

    He looks fantastic. Looking forward to seeing the alt mode.

    Not looking forward to dead Optimus.

    Elbows and knees.

    Stop forcing your diatribe in a forum section that's based on anything but G1.
