    While I'm intrigued by the Transformers has been intertwined with human history for centuries aspect, I feel this is a little too much.

    It feels as if both major World Wars were fought with the Transformers' help. Besides the continuity issues that causes, there is another rather implausible aspect - with these robots fighting with armies that number in the hundreds or thousands, how did they manage to stay secret after all this while?

    Whatever sworn to secrecy pact there may be, surely someone would have talked or mentioned about the Transformers.

    Also, Starscream's inclusion in there is rather lazy and not well thought out. The F-22 Raptor has many more times the mass of a WW1-era biplane. Even assuming that he was one of those biplanes and somehow still transformed into the same general robot shape as his modern F-22 guise, he should still have been much smaller. (I know the movies cheat with mass shifting quite often, but this is just too obvious)

    Personally, rather than using most of the 2007 cast of robots, I would have rather they just used generic protoforms if they were going down this route. At least it could be explained away that there were others who came earlier, and the ones we saw in TF1 were a new batch, which wouldn't mess with the continuity as much.

    That was the Shia-verse, this is the writer's room continuity.

    Oh, isn't the Voyager Bumblebee a secret? Could it be a WWII bumblebee toy?

    Why in the hell would a Transformer look like a samurai


    Unless he spent some time along the Japanese.

    Well, in ROTF Wheelie did say that the Transformers have been here "thousands of years" or something to that effect. Also called them "Seekers" and Simmons mentioned Project Blacklist. He also used the date 1932.

    Come to think of it you may be on to something. If the vehicle Bee has is larger then any of his camero forms then that would warrant a Voyager figure.

    He is Welsh, you know! So yes, he'll say 'Transformers' with his native accent as 'Trahns-formers'! LOL!

    Why wouldn't he? What's wrong with him scanning earth cultures, seeing something he likes in the Samurai, and deciding to mimic it? I've seen plenty of westerners over here walking around in kimonos and yukattas because they liked the look of them and what they're about. I don't stop them in the street and tell them to look more alien!

    Really, the new history description works for the most part. All they need to tweak is:
    Then just drop any mention of the Matrix again in the list. Replace it with the Key of Vector Sigma as a stand-in.

    Also:
    Then just ignore the solar collector from RotF completely. It can just be part of the Fallen's plans, which didn't make much sense to begin with anyways.

    Lmao.
    Lately I've been thinking that most characters here aren't relevant to the story.
    The characters that should have been here (aside from the tank bot) is Jetfire and the other seekers.

    Now, never did I suspect Bumblebee might've been on Earth for soo long, I've always thought he arrived a couple of years earlier than the rest of the Autobots!
