    June can't get here fast enough to see what all these tid bits of info eventually become in the movie. A coherent plot or an effing train wreck.
    I like the idea if a female quintisson, As long as its not a copy of the borg queen.

    You are correct.
    G1 may have had animation short comings and its ideas and concepts weren't completely fleshed out or thought of like the concept of a Spark for example, but without G1 there wouldn't have been any other Transformers series and movies since. The Bay movies are a love'em or hate'em ordeal and to each there own, but the hate for G1 is misguided, wrong even because you wouldn't have Michael Bays Transformers movies if Transformers originally completely failed. It would be nice to see a movie that was closer to the source material but it seems best to just look at it as a Multi-verse concept where eaçh world is a little or a lot different than the one each of us started out with and enjoy.
    Finding what you enjoy about each concept and not taking it so serious as to needlessly bash someone for liking G1 for example doesn't do any good but create pointless animosity. Otherwise you create a pointless pissing contest of " My Optimus can beat up your Optimus" which is immature and pointless. Everybody on this website has their favorite version or series of Transformers but we all like Transformers. Wouldn't do any good for me to go around bashing those who like The Bay movies and it doesn't do any good to go around bashing those who like G1. Or the Prime series or the Unicron trilogy or whatever.
    We all enjoy Transformers and thats what counts and enjoy what you're gonna enjoy.
    Cheers people

    Wow, even the Quintessons aren't safe from gender swaps. If this was a female-to-male swap, people would be rioting in the streets (probably literally, considering all the other nonsense that's going on at the moment).

    Well, she's certainly hot, but #notmyquintesson

    Needs less sexy Brit and more dying cat/old man voice.

    LMAO, half the crap you listed came after the Quints. Those things terrified me as a kid. They were definitely a newer concept in their time, and I watched a lot of movies. Furthermore, the entire creationist notion of the G1 Transformers blew me away. Years later, when I watched the movie The Matrix, I thought "This is the Transformers creation story in reverse," where organics create machines to do their dirty work, and the machines grow sentient and rebel. Yes, the rebelling robots have been done before, but then that they reverted to their original programming and started a civil war was a pretty awesome Science Fiction element for a cartoon aimed at kids. You can attempt to dismiss it as lazy 80's cliches all you want, but particularly for the time and demographic, this was great story-telling.

    Every movie we have a group of newcomers who have to learn not to trust IMDB before said movie comes out. Rite of passage I suppose.

    I think the "Creators" may be a composite of the 13 original Primes from the Aligned continuity and the Quintessons. (Yes, I know we already had the Dynasty of Primes in Revenge of the Fallen, but they weren't really there from the "beginning" and were mostly nameless generic bots. I don't recall a Transformers story ever having the Quintessions predating the Original 13.)

    Quintessa may be a Quintession version of Solus Prime. We already heard her speak and saw what appeared to be Solus' hammer in one of the trailers. Perhaps Quintessa gave the hammer to Prime or Bumblebee?

    If this were the case, there were probably only 13 "Creators". Possibly a very ancient, dying race before they created the Transformers.

    I agree with this. While it is okay to explore new concepts with an old idea, at the same time one must remember to honor the source's roots. Basically a proper balance between the old and new concepts need to be struck. A good example would be the Animated series. While the series is quite drastically from what G1 established, it still honors it with callbacks or slightly updated concepts. Only time I would say perhaps it's alright to create all new material would be if the original material was more of a lost gem of history per se. An example would be Steeljaw in RiD2015 who is drastically different from his G1 counterpart.

    Except it isn't. We've since had official confirmation that she is playing Quintessa. (Front paged and everything) The thread title was just never updated.

    The name of the character doesn't seem to be confirmed. Unless you are taking the IMDB page as confirmation.

    It appears they confirmed she is going to be in the movie. It doesn't say they confirmed the character.
