    Hmmm, Bumblebee becoming Powerlinx Bumblebee would make things sorta full circle.

    Yup, black Bumblebee confirmed. Knowing bay, Hot Rod will be shoehorned in as a last minute character who will most likely die in a fiery explosion after 15 minutes of screen time because well, Bay films :bay

    Honestly I don't know about this...it's giving me a hard time to think this would be set before the movies unless it's an animated movie on Cybertron but if you're saying Sideswipe survived all this time then yes I could see that going.

    I think it really is him because I think I heard someone say that Hot Rod was added in to honor his 30th anniversary, even though by the time the movie comes out it'll be his 31st. Eh oh well.

    Of course Swipe survived. He and Dino, Jolt, Topspin, Roadbuster and Chromia all hightailed it off planet Mud aboard another Wrecker built ship. They are traversing the galaxy, far away from backstabbing humans, in search of Sunstreaker and other Autobots.

    (as Bay himself has said, if you didn't see it happen onscreen it didn't happen. so the comics do not count).:D

    as of now, yes they very well could have. Any we didn't see dies on screen could come back IF the writers want them to. And well, we see even deaths don't truly mean one is dead for good. So who knows.

    Can i just say that alot of the G1 alt.modes looked ridiculous. Me for one loves what the Bayverse did to the Transformers designs. It was needed, Just like Comicbook costume designs if they go with what people knew growing up it would look stupid onscreen and they def wouldnt be taken serious IMO

    I would pay good money to see THE Twins in the same movie as the minor twins. I can already picture the sass between the two sets of twins. I can also see Sunny and Sides using the minor twins as soccer balls.:lol :ev:

    Alright then it's gonna be on Earth so the only way for it to have Sideswipe in is for the writters to say he survived.And if this movie is set after TF5 then maybe something happened to Prime,Bee is the leader and Hot Rod his lieutenant..just a thought.

    Great point, Remember how stupid-looking Ant-man's "Retro" outfit looked like? Ant-man's Movie look was an improvement!

    Which might explain why Bay "deviates" from some traditional designs.

    Well I've already pointed out in a few other threads that Cybertron is involved in this movie and we know OP is trying to revive it. So if he does, I can see OP taking leave from Earth to oversee that Cybertron is watched over and he's there to help rebuild it. BUT I can also see the Autobots wanting to keep an eye on Earth because well, Earth will always be a target for evil out there lol. So I can see Bee and a small unit of Bots staying behind to continue to watch over Earth. And I'm hoping in TF6 that Bee runs across Sam and a few other past humans again to keep the movies fresh but relatable with not only new members of TFs and humans but returning cast too. And if past bots like Swipe was to show up, check! And past humans like Sam, check!

    If they are truly going to go with a true TFs cinematic universe, they will need friendly faces that can come and go.

    i would agree, for me; this is it's own universe with it's own canon

    most of the transformers we've seen have looked pretty awesome in my opinion

    the ones that i would say i enjoyed the least were dotm soundwave & rampage...

    i loved satellite soundwave -- what a great idea..he was off earth the whole movie..genius

    That and the movies kind of have already filled the "Kill Off and Revive Optimus" quota in the 2nd film.
