    I don't think anyone really cares about TLK anymore. We can just ignore this.

    I don't think many things can explain these design changes even 20 years prior,we can only say Transformers take the shape of whatever time period or gimmick they use.The 80's?Silly 80's design.Knights theme?We will have Knight TF and even make Prime one so that's that.The thing is I don't think Bee is on Earth by the time this movie begins..I think we see him arrive here.

    I don't think the design change needs any explanation. It's just creative decision on how this movie will distance itself from previous movies after TLK underperforms. It's Hasbro/Paramount way to convice public that this is different from previous transformers movies, in hope that they will gain more viewer for this one.

    I don't give a shit about continuity as long as it's good as a standalone movie.

    The term "soft reboot" is one of the most annoying things I've ever experienced.

    I still kind of hope we get a Sam reference. Like he remembers his mission as the Witwicky guardian and parts ways with Charlie to watch a toddler Sam from a distance.

    Honestly, I hope nothing from the original movies makes it in here, because after the first it all went down hill.

    That is the very least of TLK's plothole problems.

    Super low effort replies here lol

    Anyway, it’s very unlikely they took Bee’s WWII past into account when making this.
    The redesign of planet Cybertron alone shows this is a visual reboot or soft reboot.
    There’s a big chance Bee first arrived on Earth in the 1980s in this film.

    Ideally, Bee’s more kiddish robot mode was caused by him losing his memory and reverting back into a kid,
    but he still had the look during the Blitzwing fight scene before the memory wipe.

    On one hand it makes sense. They specifically had dialogue making note that Bumblebee did not remember Burton, thus foreshadowing Bee losing his memory at some point.

    But on the other hand, what if Burton was just a little senile in his old age and made all of it up.

    I think there's an even simpler explanation. I took at as simply meaning Bee didn't recognize an old man he had only seen once as a kid.

    If this movie is connected with the bayverse, that's ok if it isn't I still think it's ok , but there are far to many plotholes and continuity errors that it doesn't really matter anymore lol:D :D
