    Yeah, you can see him get stabbed as he tries to tackle Scourge in the shot right before that.

    Considering the museum scene takes place early in the film, I suppose there is not point in being worried.

    It seems like that shot of him in alt mode next to Cheetor is later in the movie and he is reportedly getting a beast mode at some point (as per figure listings), so he's probably wounded here, sits a portion of the movie out, and returns later.

    Thats actually been my theory, well, at least part of it.


    I had suspected when we saw those Beast Mode Bumblebee listings and we learned of Bee being mortally wounded by Scourge and being put atop an alter by Cheetor that he would get wounded and come back with the Beast Mode. I figured that the scene where Optimus rams Scourge in Peru would be out of an anger for hurting Bumblebee.

    It seems I may still be right, but not in the way I had imagined.

    • The cargo ship IS Stratosphere. Our cut had him voiced by John DiMaggio with a Scotsman voice.
    • The only other voice I could recognize was the actor who voiced Arcee in Prime did the voice in this movie too.
    • There was one decepticon at the beginning. He was a generic no name, but he turned into a bus. Prime kills him in the beginning to give you that Bot vs Con feel.
    • There are no true Predacons. Only a bunch of Scorponoks (?) But they don't do anything other than be scorpions.
    • The Wheeljack head change is unfortunately true. He has a generic autobot face with big dorky glasses, not like Que's.
    • The designs I saw where original. They were larger than your average transformer (about the scorponok army, i then asked if thats why G1 scorp is in the diecast metal set, "cause they take after him?")
    • Yeah! Everyone is accounted for in that set except Nightbird and Arcee (this doesnt mean soundblaster and those other seekers are in the movie, not everyone in the set is in the movie, but everyone in the movie is in the set.)
    • The basic plot Synopsis is that the Autobots and Terrorcons are fighting over these "Transwarp" keys. The Autobots want them to take them home, while the Terrorcons want them to bring Unicron to Earth (continued in image)
    • [​IMG]
    • I hope so. I was part of the focus group ar the end and I made a big stink out of that and the predacons
    • She was SO bland. He character is a museum intern who wants to work for the museum and she has the knowledge for it, but that gets left behind completely. When all is said and done, she doesn't even get a little resolution at the end. She only there to read old maximal hyroglphs (about Dominique Fishback's character Elena.)
    • Nope. No military. Just suburban kids and robots. The main humans are Noah and Elana and Noah's sick brother as the largest support character. There's other small roles obviously, but those three are the most important
    • (regarding the maximals) Airrazor and Primal do most of the talking. Airrazor is a kind and wise maximal who is used to becoming exposition for our heroes. Primal is a proud warrior who is tasked to guarding on of the keys with Cheetor and Rhinox. He kinda mentors Prime a bit about being kind and trust humans. Cheetor and Rhinox are just there. Cheetor says a few lines and even calls Primal boss bot. Rhinox says one line and they all laugh it off like "You can talk?". They have their maximize moment, but the ps2 graphics that were their character models made them like all the same unfortunately. I'm sure that will be different when it's finished
    • (i joked about Prime and Primal both responding to when someone asks for Optimus) Ha! That's never brought up at all. They anounce his name as Optimus Primal and no one bats an eye.
    • Bee isn't in it much. He talks radio like we're used too. Nothing specific about his past adventure, but he does try to tell Prime humans ain't all bad earlier in the film.
    These leaks from August 16th, which we no know to be true because of the Stratosphere info, confirm Bee takes a pretty big back seat in the movie.

    Definitely not a fan of the Optimus design... especially the Galvatron-esque arm Canon. Still pumped overall though.

    There's a listing for a ROTB "Beast mode Bumblebee" somewhere in the gimmick line.

    Just got DOTM jetwing Prime, what a beauty. I love that all his accessories can be easily stored in the weapon wheel.

    It seems like he’s gonna get the Que treatment (normal face) which as a WJ fan sucks hard. Especially from going from BB to this.

    I can tell that he doesn't seem to have his glowing ears but I don't know what his face looks like yet.

    Going by the rumor which the design looks basically like. He’s probably get the Que treatment and have glasses and a normal face. Unfortunately.

    I think every new character is getting a SS toy in 2023 and tbh, I prefer getting new toys for new characters instead of a modified Optimus. But we will get him, it's an Optimus toy after all

    SS ROTB Arcee is not confurmed, but I think she's the unknown core figure

    I usually don't go to the movies anymore, but this (RotB) looks like one where I'll definitely be grabbing a friend or two and going!

    There's a chance that if they are taking in feedback from the screening they'll at least not give Wheeljack's face the Que treatment. I mean the Bumblebee movie was originally going to be different from the final version we got in the end in the test screenings but was changed so it's not out of the question.

    I saw you said this in the va announcement thewad and I 100% hope so. Cause the other bots are still somewhat faithful and BBM G1 looking and let WJ is the big one changed.
