    If anything, I think Mirage will be like the cooler brother you want to hang around, like he still will be a type of kid appeal character, but more because hes chill yet badass/cool, unlike bumblebee who literally is like a child

    He probably would have multicolored/rainbow eyes and look feminine.

    Damn (also maybe Unicron involvement as well).
    Yeah like maybe he's the older brother in a sense for the film like not completely mature (like maybe a teenager) but more mature and older than Bumblebee (who's more of a child around 9-12)

    Imagine if ROTB turns out to be a Live-Action adaptation of TFP.

    It is the TFP cast on the big screen, with just a few slight differences. "Mirage" looks and acts like TFP Smokescreen. As for his ability to copy multiple modes, perhaps he's able to replicate himself, like Siege Mirage did.
    As for Bee dying, I'm wondering if they'll pull from TFP Bee's death. Bee is killed in battle, but an ancient device or ritual saves him, kind of like the fluid in the Omega Lock did in TFP. Bee awakens whole, with the ability to speak restored.
    If you really think about it, the final season of TFP was even called Beast Hunters, and the name of the movie is Return Of The Beasts.
    It would not surprise me at all if they pulled from TFP for this movie.

    About the 2 titans is a theory of mine that I made based on the apus of Peru, it is not a leak.

    The only thing they told me is that it will be an ancient transformer that the city of Machu Picchu built.

    This information is from a source that I am barely aware of. take your leaks with care until time gives you reason.

    The thing about the portals is true, it was seen among the utilieria.

    The maximal will help the autobots to revive Bumblebee, Primal will guide them to a shaman that he knows in Peru, he will give them an artifact that has to go through a process in order to revive him (He shared images of this with me which you can see in my last video).

    According to this source, Bee dies in New York, which would explain the absence of him in those recordings.

    So how does the "Stone Wall Transformer" fit into that?

    I assume the two titans are sleeping under Sacsayhuaman and Macchu Picchu, rather than actually being the locations themselves - or, if the first one is dead in the present narrative, under which its remains are buried.

    And, again, the allusion to a "big beast" makes me think the finale threat isn't anything to do with Unicron - in a film full of beastformers, why would you use the term "big beast"? It's possible that this "big beast" is Trypticon, who serves as some kind of alpha Predacon.

    And, yeah, the Autobot line-up does seem to be the same line-up as TFP - so, if we go by that, we just need Ratchet and somebody who could be equivalent to Bulkhead (if not Bulkhead, maybe Ironhide?). Sounds like a good bunch.

    I’m not confident even the filmmakers remember this…also it was a last minute add in so the new writers might not want to honour exactly that

    You can pull from a show like TFP and still introduce new characters and places. They're not going to use the same storylines from TFP.

    I really hope the "Stone Wall Transformer" is a Rock Lord or at least named after one.

    Some more screenshots, showing more detail on Scourge:

    I’d love to see the video the guy right in front of Scourge’s drift was recording.

    Edit: a few more screenshots, including a glimpse inside of Optimus:

    Ok, snokoan, let's look at this critically (key phrase): If there is not some human artifact/macguffin driving the plot, then why did the writers and producers include the Incas & Machu Pichu, as well as human museum employees in the narrative?. . .And furthermore, why are BOTH the humans and multiple factions of cybertronians involved, heading towards said place?;)  It seems pretty obvious to me. As Burnout, Novaburnhilde, and others have said, the redundant narrative elements from previous films seem to be in place once again, irregardless of there being a new director (bait-and-switch tactic). Plus, they still can't be bothered to decide If, Where, and How this will fit into the TF cinematic "continuity" (a term which is a HUGE irony in itself). I can choose to see it or not see it, and I can definitely choose not to pay to see it. . .I also create my own TF characters and stories, instead of just waiting on and accepting what these suits and ties crank out. Good Day. . .

    It's also possible that the real reason why the Autobots headed to Earth (it was where the Maximals were) was kept from Bumblebee in case he was compromised.

    Here's how it's all but confirmed that the plot will go:

    Elena (Fishback's character) has found evidence of the Maximals and Predacons and/or the map to their resting place - that's what the Autobots are looking for, and presumably the Terrorcons are as well. The protagonists head to Machu Pichu with the information to the Maxies' location, pursued by the Terrorcons and manage to find the Maximals/wake up the Maximals.

    Any hints a McGuffin is involved is, at the moment, rumours - however, the fact that the Maximals and Predacons are in the film and they ended up on Earth in ancient times, seems to imply that the Incas and Machu Pichu, as well as Fishback's character being an archaeology student, is all connected to the Maximals and Predacons.

    I partially agree; Yet, given the history (key word) of this film franchise, and the patterns that have reappeared, there will most likely be some artifact involved, that is driving all concerned parties to Peru. We'll just have to disagree on that point.

    Artifacts (Human and Cybertronian) from the previous movies:

    Allspark- Map on Archibald Witwicky's glasses.

    Matrix of Leadership- Hints to where it was hidden in Egypt on a map.

    The Pillars- Hidden on a crashed ship on the moon, info kept secret by humans.

    The Seed- Nefarious humans get it from Lockdown.

    Merlin's Staff- Buried with Merlin

    Transmitter leading the Cons to Earth- Found and destroyed by Bee and Charlie.

    Even TFP had cybertronian artifacts hidden on Earth.

    Because apparently nobody remembers what Unicron did back in the end of Prime season 1.
    [​IMG]

    Except they already did. The whole 'Earth is Unicron' thing back in TLK? It was straight up because Prime did it first.

    Theorycrafting is one thing but how the bloody hell would Prime even know about the Maximals/Preds on Earth? If the Beast guys travel back in time to Earth and are entombed there, then why would Prime know anything about what people in the future did to travel back to a planet before he himself ever got there? This is just getting into the same problem with TLK where Optimus was, inexplicably, present during the HUNDRED YEARS WAR and apparently completely forgot he'd visited Earth seven hundred years previously and completely contradicting the opening narration of the first film.

    And for pete's sake could we once have a transformers film where the only reason they end up on Earth is simply because it exists as a planet and NOT BECAUSE OF SOME ANCIENT NONSENSE PREDATING EVERYTHING, where inexplicably Cybertronians know about Earth before anybody even is supposed to have visited the damn planet? We've had this plot FIVE TIMES already and it's more than worn out. No more 'Ancient Aliens', even G1 was smart and only did that plot once, with Skyfire. Just have a plot that's focused on the character driven action that doesn't rely on a bunch of bullshit happening offscreen to even set up.
