Yeah I agree, I have no idea how you animate the grill and make it continue to look humanoid.
Segmented grill that then forms into 1 when in truck mode.
AOE Optimus sort of did something like that.
I guess ypu can make it into three segments and have it slide over and around each other when needed, but I don't know how good that will look in live action and in motion.
Maybe like this? Putting the "Abs" in ab grill. Also, add more silver on the stomach. And putting Autobot logo from the new truck.
Interesting choice to make Chromedome a Boom Lift this time around.
Yes that could work, but do you think it is as aesthetically pleasing as the original BB Prime abs?
and let's put the truck mode in it..
I don't know it could work maybe? Optimus ab grill is one of the most iconic part of him. I think it's better differentiate the Cybertron form and earth form. But he got like 3 different kind of autobot symbol so it might be too excessive.
I think it could work as a nice balance. Maybe keep that bottom piece from his abs but the upper portion of his abs have the segmented grill portions to be one part biology and another part technology (It would be a pain to engineer, I imagine, though.)
It's gonna be hard as ball to engineer into toys. But a lot of Optimus figure is using a faux grill.
im hoping they find a way to spread the cage bits more throughout the body and not put them all on the shoulders
Do you guys think optimus would be a completely new 3d model or still using Bbee Prime but partly updated similar to bay did on DOTM prime?
They absolutely gonna reuse BB Optimus model. Just streamlining it to match truck and the bot mode.
It pretty much confirmed from those that were at the panel that his robot mode is basically his robot mode from BB with new truck windows and more grey, so basically more DOTM.
More DOTM approach.
Which is a great thing as love the BB Movie Prime model. It's one of my favorite Prime designs. Honestly, this might be more of a downgrade for me due to the extra gray (I loved all that red on original BB Movie model), but we'll see.
I\'m really digging this choice of truck mode. First off, I\'m not sure if it\'s just the lighting but it looks as if for colors they took inspiration from the G1 toy more than they did the cartoon with that really dark blue which overall helps it to pop and I also like how they did the silver stripes here. It feels G1 but at the same time it feels kind of remixed.
Yeah, that is true (Much to what seems to be many fans' chagrin if the outcry against MP-44 and most other Optimus figures with faux grills as of late have been, though)
that's why i think bee movie prime abs is the best choice, you dont have to create 2 grills anymore, 1 truck grill and 1 longer abs grill.. at least now the toy is being honest the abs is not the grill.. hahaha
I also prefer using bee model, so we can get better engineered toy transformation.. remember they need at least two movies at least to do bay prime properly.. among the studio series, bee movie bee and prime are the worst as they are still new for hasbro/ takara..
