    i heard the whole plot is based around the decepticons plan to order TAW-01 off ebay, sparking a desperate battle to snipe megatron in the final seconds and ensure victory. the twist is that optimus doesn't have enough money in his paypal account after trying to buy some antique glasses and starscream gets a second-chance offer on the sword.

    I'm wondering if they changed anything on Prime from movie 1 to ROTF? I know he got the hooks of death but besides that I really didn't notice anything different.

    I like the idea of the Bee growing up and getting a more mature "look", but as for Optimus, seriously, could he look more "bad"??, maybe he'll get some Cybertronian Ink like Starscream.. :D .. but I truly hope they won't mess with his look too much. Love it just the way it is, but I do agree the changes may be in part so Hasbro can churn out some new toys.. I guess it would be asking too much for the same molds a 3rd time!! Just MHO.

    given how well ROTF prime seems to have sold, it's certainly a strong possibility.

    IDK about you guys but I always felt like in ROTF Optimus' head sculpt was a bit fatter, more like his G1 head design, maybe they'll just make Prime slighty slight fatter in his body too?

    hopefully he'll have a few jetfire parts built-in now (we've already seen that new voyager- i'm thinking City Commander stylee)

    Pretty obvious
    In fact, I'm pretty sure this is the reason behind any remodeling.

    While they're at it, give them robot testicles, too. That'll really impress everyone.

    I'm pretty sure most of the Transformers in the history of Transformers have one.


    All you people whining about how this is just an excuse for more Primes and Bumblebees: Welcome to Transformers! Glad you could finally join the party and realise how the fuck the brand has survived for 25 years.

    Could Prime finally be getting a trailer? That wouldn't be the exact definition of 'subtle', however.

    My only (very minor) gripe with the Prime CG model his rather weedy upper arms. Perhaps ILM are putting him on the CyberRoids.

    Bumblebee + Maturing = Goldbug?................. Nah. Smaller eyes and few extra lines on his face. Worked for rodimus prime.

    Or maybe bumblebee will only utilise Barry White voice samples....

    Thinking about the toys, the only thing I could see them changing is he's gonna be modified to be compatible for another "Power-Up Prime" mode, but with a different character this time *cough*ULTRAMAGNUS*cough*.

    But think of the upside - with not much to really change on Optimus, maybe Hasbro can focus on making a better Megatron!

    I doubt the Twinz will be back in TF3. No way the suits will allow it to happen since so much racial animosity was stirred with those characters.

    yeah, this news post should totally have had that same Prime face as the icon, but with the $$ signs in his eyes. This move of Has-I mean ILM's is all about making Hasbro some extra green. Just like swapping out the Camaro Concept for a modded production camaro in ROTF--all so Hasbro could make a S**TLOAD of Bumblebees with little black lights and vents on the front bumper. I'm already seeing about 20 new "Battle-Hardened-Warrior-Defender Bumblebee with Mature Face Action" toys and some "Armor-Up-Power-Mode-Bad-Ass Optimus Prime" leader/voyager class action. SIGH. Not that anyone didn't totally see this coming :rolleyes:

    Sounds like it could be a cool visual upgrade.

    Of course to Hasbro it probably sounds more like "New Toys! New Toys! New Toys!".

    i hope bb's eyes are smaller and you can see his mouth (i thought the ball thing was his mouth and that was a speaker :lol )

    as for optimus i hope his ear antennae things stay the same but "heroic" doesnt suite bay optimus (he does the wrong thing for the right reasons such as killing decepticons so they dont come back although i approve of this and if he's heroic then he'll do the right thing for the wrong reasons since he wont want the humans mistaking him for a decepticon since he isnt killing the decepticons)
