    Holy moly

    If that scale chart is to be believed, that means the Bumblebee movie follows a similar scale to Animated, where all the Decepticons are giants compared to the Autobots

    Big fan of John Wick vs Optimus. Only one obvious outcome there

    It’ll end by Jazz falling and Megatron getting the jump on him, because you forgot to put Jazz’s heels down! :p

    Have you guys seen the fan made render of that design? This was from Capcomkai on Instagram.

    I'll admit I'm not big on the G1 designs from the Bumblebee movie but this looks killer!

    Everything about this (besides the face) I love! Never really understood why people didn’t like the new designs in Bumblebee. I thought they were the perfect balance between Bay and G1. Loved the Seeker designs especially!

    Has anybody bought 3 Studio Series Long Hauls and one extra brawl to replicate their rotf/dotm decepticon cast?

    It's weird for me and I don't know if I'll ever be able to put it in exact words but here goes.

    I think if these new Knight designs existed from the beginning and we had no Bay designs to compare them too I think I wouldn't have a problem with them. If these were what existed in 2007 I think I'd be fine with that. They would be a perfect representation of "Transformers" on the big screen.

    What kills the designs for me is the fact that the Bay designs do exist. Bay, whether you like him or not and like the movies or not, pushed the envelope on what Transformers could look like. He didn't stick slavishly to the G1 designs but instead took their basic elements and created something new. To me, the designs make sense - alien robots don't need to look humanoid. And if a basic part of their biology is turning into vehicles, it makes sense for those vehicle parts to be part of their robot modes (Knight stuck to this principle so really this is only a dig on the AOE and TLK designs).

    I will say too that Bumblebee had the unfortunate fate of coming out in 2018 when we had Siege, Cyberverse, Evergreen, and we had just come off of a trilogy line (Combiner Wars, Titans Return, and Power of the Primes) that focused heavily on the G1 designs. It was this environment that kind of made it feel like G1 designs were just being pushed out everywhere and it just became too much for me.

    I respect the 80s toys and cartoon for what they did and for helping to give this franchise its foundation, but I want fresh ideas. I want new interpretations. Bay made bold design choices and it worked for me. I may be biased because the first movie came out when I was 9 and kind of acts as my version of G1 but I just appreciate that those designs don't strictly follow anything that was already established. It was new and exciting.

    This was a long post and probably doesn't help explain all of my thoughts but that's it in a nut shell.

    With all of this said, however, I respect anyone who likes the new Knightverse designs. I think they are elegant in their own way and have some great qualities. :D :D

    If you're looking for the most movie accurate Scorponok you should take a look at "4ever studios scorpion". He's the best representation of the Scorponok that we have so far :) 
    Found this picture on the internet. 4ever Scorponok next to WJ Blackout

    If they introduce Lockdown in a future knightverse movie I would like to see something similar to his ROTF toy design, I think it fits very well. 20191226_142821.jpg

    Just speculation but Devastator completed with colored protos will probably be shown off at NYTF and the last two will come out in the typical right before summer starts wave
