    ABSOLUTELY!
    Wow. THAT is awesome!! I could totally see this being the direction of a new series of Transformers movies--both calling back classic features, and featuring highly-realistic details. That would be amazing. This doesn't happen too often...but I am BLOWN AWAY!!! :O

    These are so damn epic-looking. It's awesome that they're being used for '84.

    I just learned that John Giang designed Shredder from the last reboot. I loved that design.

    I think there is something even much more cooler in these designs--I think it's in the eyes, and the areas surrounding them. It's just jaw-dropping for me. And the entire designs coalesce with that unique design around the eyes; one that is not so unique as to be unrecognizable, but one that only a true artist can extract out of a design we do overall know, that only a genius artist who can see where lines and shapes could form where the rest of us would not. Wow. Cheers John Giang. We should be so lucky to have a movie series as designed by you!!!

    Looking at what we got giving Megatron a Roman Centurion like helmet really suits him apart of just the German bucket-head we've been accommodated to. If it's even possible I'd kill to see the whole thing.

    I just want to see full body shots of these designs. They look so interesting and different.

    They remind me of those \"Space Cobra\" or other amine (like Gachaman) that have been made in a sort of 80\'s style \"airbrushed photo-realistic\" style.

    And I bloody love it.

    Funny to be getting them as a variant for the super-80s throwback series but variant rules

    Anyway, it's criminal that we can't even see as much of Megatron as we can of Optimus when we full-body shots of both would be amazing

    Yelling I don’t hear anythigv
    You do know point of movies is to get and make new fans of people get into transformer which movies have succeeded new fans may not like cartoon blocky LEGO bots who knows but in bumblebee prime look very cartoony and less realistic I never saw red semi red semi truck with stripe on side of cab ever new fans like realistic looking bots not cartoons if new fans like cartoons bumblebee would have hit billion mark that both sequels did back to back
    Look at prime picture closely if prime look like that most people will say prime is g1 looking enough prime in cartoon big boring blocky in this picture he have detail on his back, some extra detail on his upper chest that takes away from his generation one look , armada prime, energon prime,

    Do you fans actually think if transformers look very cartoony looking from cartoon that will bring in new fans to like transformers if that where true bumblebee movie would have made billion easy but maybe new fans who like realistic looking stuff not cartoon looking stuff saw bumblebee trailer bots look to cartoony not realistic enough from 2007 movies did show.

    Revenge of fallen how many people who live in real world say they see green giant construction vehicles no one that looks cartoony unrealistic if devastator in revenge of fallen look like he did in cartoon do you really think and believe new fans who do not read, do watch cartoons, do not buy toys will like look of devastator as giant green transformer with purple hands and all his vehicles look purple and green I will say not if that was true bumblebee movie will have made billion easy and transformers movies would not have to depend on new fans to see both transformer movies make billion back to back easy,.

    Name movie series that have had made billion back to back sequels I can not think of one unless avatar two is able to do it Star Wars didn’t do it iron man, Thor , avengers did not do it

    Megatron’s helmet looks way too big for his head; otherwise, I really like these designs

    Prime reminds me of RID01's Optimus, and Megs looks pretty awesome as well.
