    I love how everytime wheeljack gets a new poster or image people go on a full crusade trying to get paramount to change his face. Fb groups and reddit just go full fucking apeshit seeing his rizz.

    When an unstoppable force and an immovable object cross paths everyone loses. Could we please stop the Wheeljack discourse, for the love of all things good in this world

    I wonder if those same people bitched as much when they saw Armada Wheeljack for the first time, or when TFP Wheeljack was a Wrecker instead of an inventor.

    Y\'know, looking at what we\'re getting now as the film gets closer. I look back at the leaks we got in late 2021 and realize that those were most likely all true.

    I personally don't care about the design change. Considering I grew up with Bayverse and I'm more open minded in relation to design changes.
    Some people here just need to understand that no matter how much they complain, they wont move the needle enough.
    But hey, maybe WJ makes some upgrades to his body in the sequels and we get a more WJ type head.

    Why is Mirage\'s head different again? This is his 4th or 5th head redesign.

    Armada Wheeljack is in a weird position because he's a nameslap of a guy who was clearly designed to be based on G1 Sideswipe, though he's far from the worst nameslap in that show (that award goes to Perceptor the mini-con combiner, people were livid over that even though in the end it was simply a move to preserve the trademark).

    TFP Wheeljack actually looked like Wheeljack in both robot mode and vehicle mode, if anything people wanted more of him. Prime screwed a lot of things up but Wheeljack was legitimately one of the better things in the show.

    The ironic thing is that, because of complaints, the original 2007 Movie Megatron's helmet was slightly altered. I myself couldn't tell you what exactly changed since that was a little before my time in the greater online community but it's a well documented fact.

    That's a waaay better poster for Wheeljack than the last one(damn, where'd he get that bfg!?), I just wish he would have the ears in more shots than the "battle ready" pose from the last trailer but they're probably still doing last minute touch-ups since it definitely seems like a last minute addition to address the complaints(and I greatly appreciate it). I'm guessing most of the promo material is a bit older and they didn't have time to add them in. I still hate his face and the stupid glasses and suspenders but I'm growing to like everything else about him ---so far. I still have some very high expectations for what makes a proper Wheeljack, so the jury is still out.

    I love the posters, especially Arcee, the best design for her in my opinion. However, why don\'t they ever show her in motorcycle form?

    We do see her in bike mode for a split second next to Bumblebee in car mode in the 2nd trailer when Optimus is scolding Mirage for bringing a human into the base but that's it. It's definitely a bit strange. I assume she uses a hologram while drivng around so maybe the person they use is a cameo they want to keep hidden, or an easter egg to past human characters? Personally I think it would be really cool in general if any live-action Transformer with a vehicle alt mode could have a hologram driver who is a cameo of the voice actor. I can't believe that hasn't happened yet, 7 movies into this franchise.

    I feel like Ducati only allowed the license the movie, absolutely zero promotional material, because every time Acree has showed up in a trailer or shot, the logo on her leg is censored

    You must understand, none of these people actually watch the media. So they just saw screenshots of a guy who looked like g1 wheeljack and thought "the franchise is saved!"... blissfully unaware that his personality is nothing like wheeljack beyond being a mechanic.
