    I do agree. I'm still excited for the movie, but I just don't get why it seems that they haven't learned the lessons of why people enjoyed Bumblebee.

    They gave the go ahead for the Netflix Bee last year, so I don’t see it being too much of an issue. Even then they don’t need to license it. Few tweaks like with Dino and it can pass.

    I don't know, i like the vehicles and the director is talented, but the plot on paper sounds kind of silly. I guess time will tell, but i fluctuate from excitement to nervousness.

    Dude, G2 is basically G1 with funky colors. Even the "G2" cartoon was just a patchwork of old G1 episodes, and the 1986 film splintered apart.

    You also have decades of established lore, mythos, toys, and the strength of 6 blockbuster films behind G1 now. Your comparison between the early-to-mid 90s and now is not at all a fair one.

    Oooh I love this, movie leaks/reveals are the best, sometimes better than the movie itself! I feel like that VW Bus could be Wheeljack, but is also equally likely to be another character, or just a decoy, theres no way to tell until more info is available. Arcee looks cool, tho there's got to be some serious mass shifting happening if she's going to be the same size as she was on the Cybertron battle scene in BB. The Terrorcons are badass, Nightbird in particular. Optimus, Bee, and Mirage all look great, I really like Bee's Offroad Camaro.

    Good question. Maybe for the same reason Paramount decided to make GI Joe Origins: Snake Eyes look exactly like Retaliation in spite of calling it a "reboot" and a "true martial arts movie". These fucking execs are just trolling us, man.

    I just wish Wheeljack had more green on him (I know, I’m a toxic EVIL geewunner who can’t accept change (from a cartoon that came out 17 years before I was born)) or at the very least I hope his robot mode looks like Wheeljack. But I’m definitely getting the feeling that Bumblebee was just a fluke, and we’re returning to nameslap central. They’re probably still going to make it connect to the Bayverse as well, since they seem to be really promoting Bay’s involvement here. If that’s the case, then I’m really not interested in this movie.

    I have no expectations anymore.

    Entertain me with robots, movie-people.

    Why won't this shitty universe just die?

    Bumblebee was good (could have lived without the tacked on Camaro retcon at the end) in that it was an actual film with a plot, but this is going to be another 3 hour Michael Bay mess with a bunch of G1 names slapped on barely related characters & utterly irrelevant vehicles that look nothing like their namesakes. And this time, they'll screw up Beast Wars too. In fact, no Gary Chalk or David Kaye? They already did.

    This series won't get better until these producers are GONE.

    I wish Disney would buy Hasbro, you'd get some decent Transformers content then. They know how to treat successful IP and build a universe around it. Imagine Disney letting Rooster Teeth make a Spiderman cartoon? I don't think so.

    Agreed, I think Disney has bought too many things in our life time. By this point, they are a giant mega Corp.

    It would be Disney or WB because Universal is no longer a pick for Hasbro because of Jem.
