    i really liked the twins

    those who complain about robots being racist are pu**ies (for gods sake there robots, grow up)

    i didnt see anything racist about the twins (unless ppl say the accent is racist, then i would say "the accent is racist not the robots then")

    I'm all for not having ******ed looking robots, the engineering utilized to make the toys was impressive but wasted.

    How do they make Prime more heroic? At any rate, I kind of expected something like this to some degree. Though I can't really say how well it works till we see new shots of the CGI upgrades.

    I'm thinking that the vehicle will 'FINALLY' have a decent smattering of weapons in vehiclemode and some of the weapons will show through on the robot form - so image Optimus as he is but with all the extra guns from that toy shown at toyfare on him in both modes, like guts blasters - shoulder mounted weapons, missiles from the windscreen and so on.

    I think both characters will look broadly similar and the extra weapons will be how changes manifest.

    Though filling in some of the more obvious gaps in their armor wouldn't hurt much i suppose.

    I'm guessing the vehicle modes will be pretty similar - though it did cross my mind that they might change Bumblebee's stripe pattern a bit

    Hmm...well shucks-- the folks at ILM seem super squealy in getting some CGI action going on! :lol 

    My 2 Cents worth on the vague but interesting titbit....

    Maybe they decided to act on the toy version of "Stealth" BB and just give him a black paint job. :D 

    As for Prime, maybe he "magically" becomes a "Powemaster"? :D 

    One can be optimistically hopeful, no? ;)

    Slight changes = casual moviegoers won't notice; hardcore fans will rebuy slight retools of old figures.

    I think you are correct. Trailer = super armor. They already designed this for movie 2 but didn't use it.

    HELL no - it took me forever to finally be able to draw Prime's body.

    Bumblebee maturing? He's an adult already, for crying out loud. They just want more toys for Hasbro, and more whoring out for Bumblebee. I recall from the video of Toy Fair 2010 - they said Bumblebee's always getting into trouble, always joking. The hell?!?! Utter BS.

    The Twins were the children, and they should just die.

    :thumb  Didn't think of that, but you're probably right. I wouldn't be surprised at all if they give him a black helmet and a silver battle/face mask.

    As for everyone's speculation on altered alt modes, I really don't think those will change at all. Maybe Bee's will, seeing as it changed in ROTF, but I think Prime's will be the same. I also think that any changes to Prime will probably be as minor as they say they will. Since his design has always been really skeletal and junked up, maybe they'll finally cover up some of those naked sprockets and make him look jacked like he's supposed to. F*ing leader of the Autobots after all.

    Based on the thread title, BB and Prime either had a falling out and now are going to make-up, or BB and Prime are going to be drag for TF3.

    Reading the article, very cool to see some subtle changes and I'm quit sure this will make Hasbro very very happy. New Toys!!!
