    I guess it's just that they keep the filming underwrap very well

    Hmm perhaps I'm wrong, but I feel like ROTB is the film that bring more faith to the audiences just like bumblebee and stabilize the franchise, then with all the good news, the animated movie will bring in a lot more people that want to watch it. But it all depends on this movie's success or failure

    The maximals and predacons are both fully CGI characters. You will not see them on set from these picture leaks.

    I still have mixed feelings about this whole ordeal. While I'm not opposed to having 4/5 factions, I share the general consensus that it risks making the film bloated.

    I'm basically at "Hope for the best, but expecting the worst" at this point, but that's not to throw any shade at this new director. Good luck to him!

    As far as the alt modes go, I REALLY love the Nissan Skyline, and I think that it's a good fit for an evil ninja fembot.

    Prime looks divine, even with the bullbar (wondering how that affects bot mode).

    Arcee, Mirage, and the two new guys are fine, I guess, but we'll just have to wait for their identities to be revealed.

    And then there's Scourge. I want to like Scourge, but the excessive amount of collected faction symbols looks, frankly, ridiculous.
    I (think I) understand what they're going for; a homage to Spielberg's Duel, but what I think they should've done would be to keep that detail restricted to robot mode/ just have less of them on the grill, or to go the Deep Desert Brawl/ AOE Hound/ TLK Onslaught route and just make them straight killsigns on the side of the cab.

    The van was spotted in Montreal with English writing, so it seems the writing changes to Spanish when it gets to Peru, rather than it having any connection to Noah.

    For those getting excited about the Wreckers, I wouldn't put too much stock into what's probably just a choice the designers made to vary the types of insignia on the grille. I'm not saying we won't ever see Wreckers in the movies, but I doubt it confirms any intention at this time

    This is all perfectly reasonable.

    With many of the updates we see of the alt-modes there's always a tiny part of me that gets at least a little excited, but then my more rational / skeptical instincts kick in and remind me to keep my expectations at a reasonable level.

    I want the movie to be an improvement, building off of what Bumblebee did right instead of repeating past mistakes but I can't ignore the various red flags that we've picked up on along the way. The movie could still come out and be great, I just think with what we know and taking past signs into account as well the chances of it being great are not as likely as it being another flop. The worst case scenario would be that the movie comes out and it's yet another loud, stupid and shallow Bay-era film that does well with the general audience, enjoying the film in that state isn't a bad thing but the reality of being a consumer is that by financially rewarding creators for poor quality work will only ensure more poor quality work in the future because they know they can get away with it.

    If it comes out, isn't very good and flops at the box office that'd suck for sure but it'd be for the best since it means next time they'll hopefully have to make an effort to do a better job. If it's decent and yet still flops then that would be pretty shitty, but at the very least we'd have two relatively decent TF movies to look back on. The best (almost pipe-dream scenario) would be the movie is in the vain of Bumblebee and against all odds continues to improve where the Bay films stagnated and suffered a slow, elongated demise and does well enough at the box office to warrant possibly more films in the future.

    Contrary to what some of you may think I really do care and want this movie to do well despite all the signs, I'm simply beyond fed up of the Bayverse and the culture of complacency and conflict it brought with it. We can do so much better than those trashy cash-grabs, and I think as a fanbase we DESERVE higher quality entertainment.

    If I was a pred or maximal and saw that grill coming my way i'd be pretty scared.
    Since he keeps those symbols right in front, that's prob what he's going for.

    The autobot and decepticon logos are physically different design wise not just them being silver, but honestly they look fine to me so old why it bothers people

    You read the part of the post you're responding to that said "not really" right? I don't see anyone actually bothered by it.

    Plus even if they were, why do you care? Differing opinions and all that.
