    I just remembered my dream from last night. Coloured Overload in-hands pics were getting leaked here. Problem was... he had no hands (still had limbs, just no hands) and his legs were one big unarticulated block. But his paint was SO good it blew me away.

    I would have preferred Izabella be the starring human character. I never found Cade all that likable, and with her backstory and established skill as a medic for Transformers, I feel like she'd have more of a reason to be there. In comparison, Cade already made sure his family was safe (which i think was his whole character arc in AOE). Plus a younger protagonist might be more relatable to younger fans.

    As for Bumblebee 2 (if it happens), I'm down with Charlie returning. She's one of my favorite human characters and it would be nice to see her interact with Bumblebee again. Her character arc did feel complete by the end of the film, but I feel like there's potential in her returning.

    That said, while I like the streamlined, G1-inspired designs and how the Autobots look friendlier and the Decepticons don't all look like monsters, I do hope we get some Bayverse-inspired freaks to keep things interesting. I feel like they could push more limits more for characters like the Dinobots or the Terrorcons or even Beast Wars or RID2015 Decepticon-inspired characters.

    I like that the decepticons look crazy cause they are in fact aliens, plus they look badass to me. But I loved the designs for drop kick and shatter. I just don’t want too blocky and g1 looking. Doesn’t look realistic to me

    To me what sells it is the visual effects and story. That’s what made the 2007 movie and BB great. They knew what to go for and how to do it well. Still think the visuals in BB are the best they’ve gotten for the TF movies. You can tell me they are alien, or show me they are alien, but what you have to do is sell me that they are alien to our world and are something more than mindless killing machines. I look forward to what the reboot holds.

    The first movie was real good because it had the suspense and the unkown element for the characters in the story. But, the humans all served a purpose in the movie and fulfilled their roles. Sam and Mikaela, Sams parents (his dad getting the car), Simmons, Lenox, Epps, the Secretary of Defense, The Analyst and the Hacker. They all come together ans progressed the story well. It was well made!

    Plus it was easy to tell the colorful guys were good and the military bots were bad.

    I agree Izabella had great potential if she was utilized they way you mentioned her in a lead role with her backstory... but alas if you took her out of that movie, the movie unfortunately is more or less the same.

    I'm noticing everybody is getting dreams about new Studio Series figures...

    Something is coming. I feel like Toy Fair is gonna give us a lot of good stuff. Keeping expectations low of course.

    How could I forget about the real hero of the Bayverse?

    Please forgive me.

    The Autobots could've used more flyers. It's a shame that Jetfire died and how Drift suddenly forgot about his helicopter mode halway through AoE.

    When I first watched TLK I despised AoE so I wasn't all that disappointed. But about a year and a half later I really started to like AoE (It's now my third favourite) which has left me incredibly annoyed over how TLK mostly ignored everything AoE had set up.

    I always figured the Decepticons chose to look more monstrous for the sake of being more intimidating.

    Totally agree with this. I would like to see her return but her story was so nicely wrapped up that it might be better to leave her alone for now. Maybe she can come back as an adult in movie 3.
    Definitely agree.
