    Wel... not to talk about who that new bot is... I know what this means... it means that the CGI department has already finished making the new Transformers for this movie. That's an absolute certainty. The only thing left is to make them move in the scene's of the movie.

    Maybe it's a Pretender?

    A transformer in an Einstein wig.

    Okay.

    After thinking of everything ludicrous we've seen from the previous movies, the fact that things are clearly set in stone at this point, and the pleasant fact that this is the last of the trilogy, my only response is:

    "Oh Michael Bay, you so crayzeh." :D 

    I will be both bemused and amused by Transformers 3.

    ITT: "My childhood was walking down a dark alley, G1 Wheeljack in hand, when suddenly a blurry cardboard cutout of a robot face leapt out of nowehere and raped it."

    I want to marry you.

    He never said wich new robot wasn't Percepter right ?
    If he did say wich,then it's either Wheeljack,Chromedome,Cerebros,Brainstorm,Alpha Trion,or Shockwave in a disguise.

    Maybe he has something to do with the space race.

    Albert Einstein was actually a pretender all along....funny.

    I came back to see the face again after a day to see if I was just being harsh and quick to judge, but I think I actually like this face LESS than yesterday.

    That hair is just a really, really bad decision in my humble opinion. It'll be interesting to see if it lights up I guess, but in that pic to me it just looks awful. I just don't get why they designed that, or how it got approved.

    My vote goes to this guy being Kranix. We saw concept art awhile back of Lithone so maybe Kranix is the Lithonian who makes to earth? I dunno I'm just speculating but it would be pretty neat.

    So after days and days of 'OMG Bay this is exactly what we want, we love you finally!' and numerous 'omg yay' moments (Primes trailer, Shockwave, not-Stunticons, Mercedesbot etc) it's all been for nothing, because we've seen a Transformer 'with hair'.


    God, this fandom is fickle. Sure i'm not the biggest fan of the idea on paper, but i'll reserve any judgement until I see the bot in action, it may actually end up making total sense. However, it's not going to destroy the film, and rape my childhood. It's a robot design people. Be upset about other things in life, not this.

    The hair could be awesome fibre optics. Be positive, we haven't even seen this bot in action and everyone is already going nuts about how stupid looking it is. He could have a face mask?

    Well, truth be told, I didn't get why Bay allowed them to spit liquid and have their "breath" show in ROTF.

    Well, machines actually need various liquids to run, so that could expain that. Though I'll agree, it was odd to see a robot spit. As for the "breath", machines give off heat and exhaust. So that's my theory for that.

    Even given the fact that the hair is something like fiber opic cables, it still just looks too goofy. And this is coming form someone who actually originally liked the Twin's character designs.

    Yeah, but as some have previously said, those didn't really look like actual strands of hair, that was more of like decorative pieces of mecha that gave the impression of hair. Even if the hair on this bot is something like optic fiber cable, it still just looks like actual biological hair. It just kind of visually throws the whole thing off.

    But where they not actual strands of hair because of the design, or because of medium limitations. Wreck-Gar's Fu Manchu certainly seemed to behave as if it was an actual flowing beard.

    I think it would be pretty cool if this was Wheeljack. The hair could be small wires like mentioned before. It could be part of the misinformation campaign too though, but its very unlikely

    I can't recall if the G1 "hair" behaved like actual flowing hair, but if it did, then that's really just one of those silly cartoons things. It still doesn't look good on an actual "realisticly" detailed transformer.

    I'm sorry. I'm usually the first guy to give stuff a chanse, but this just looks too silly to me.
