    well....

    ''In her attempt to escape, she first encounters *Mirage* and bashes her way past the startled Autobot. A group of Autobots corners her, but are hampered by the promise they made not to harm her, and she is able to use her ninja abilities to blind them and effect a proper escape. The Autobots pursue her outside, where Optimus spots her on a clifftop and drops her with a stun ray. As Bluestreak approaches her, she suddenly jumps up and decks him before throwing more spinning blades at his comrades.''

    Wheeljack is definitely in the movie. But Google cast listings are always the most reliable there are instances in the past with people listed under a movie and they're not in it.
    Yeah, honestly if political stuff was discussed I would probably avoid a lot of these forums nothing good really comes out of discussing politics (just division and anger towards one another regardless of political affiliation).

    Lack of cohesion was one of the issues in regards to the first five films for sure.

    People criticizing Lorenzo for all his blunders doesn't mean all the blame is being placed on him, there's plenty of 'blame' to go around when it comes to shitty films. Looking at the development and behind the scenes information in regards to the Bay era of films it's pretty clear that the people who were making these things didn't quite understand Transformers (or at least had a very, very surface-level understanding), which would explain why the films themselves are basically a shallow knock off of the thing they're based on.

    Michael Bay, Steven Spielberg, our buddy Lorenzo, all had a part to play in those shit-shows, even HASBRO shoulders at least some of the blame, though we can't act too surprised to see a company care more about money than the quality of its products.

    This is what happens when people constantly use "it's realistic" when trying to explain Bayverse Optimus and the Autobot's actions and why the Decepticons are nothing but 1-dimensional monsters.

    Also trying to use "it's realistic" in Transformers is fucking stupid. The war part should be as "realistic" as it is in Star Wars so we can still have actual fun.

    I mean at least we don't have people talking about Trump, Biden, or any other president. THAT kind of political things shouldn't be discussed here as well.
    Strongly agree

    FUCK no it shouldn't that the stuff that causes all this division we have now and days and I agree with it should be like SW with the politics (which can be interesting) and still being a fun, enjoyable ride.

    Also besides Prime and Mirage drifting did I miss anything really? (Left the thread cause I didn’t want to see the Prime - Scourge crash even though I know what happens but they said it was super spoiley but I assume it was only spoiley? To those that what it was it really?
    I assume it was labeled as that because of it being Prime and Scourge and some might not want to know)

    I feel like “Bumblebee” was a last hurrah for the character after being in the spotlight for over 10 years at that point, and would make sense to bring in a new face to carry on for Bumblebee.

    I have a feeling this may be what they are doing, introducing a new face.I don't think Bee dies for good, but will start getting less screentime for new, kickass youthful Bots.

    I wonder how kids will react to this hopefully not the same back in the 80s I remember hearing that a kid locked himself in his room for a week

    That's possible, it's just a shame he was only really a character for a fraction of that time.

    I'm sure we'll see him as a character/his true self we saw at the beginning and end of BB in this movie.

    While I don't think the reaction to Bee's death will be 86 Movie level Optimus, I also don't think Bee will stay dead. Even if he does, if they introduce Mirage in the right way, I think it will temper the sting of Bee's death and help fans to accept Mirage.

    I would have Bee and Mirage as friends, and Mirage making it his personal mission to avenge his friend's murder by Scourge. I would then show Optimus working through his pain by mentoring the youthful Mirage, and Mirage learning to trust and open up to his teammates.

    Don't think that they ever gonna kill Bumblebee, he's like the Pikachu of transformers. I think if they ever gonna do something like that it's gonna be Bee wounded (could be that new insignia on Scourge's grill) and Optimus trying to retrieve the artifact to save his comrade.

    He already died in TFP, but even if it’s for like 5 seconds. I wouldn’t put it past Hasbro to do it again.

    He “died” in IDW, but came back as well. I feel like Hasbro will never let Bee be permanently dead, even if he’s basically dead but in a coma or something for a really long time, the movies made sure he’s not going anywhere anytime soon.

    Bee also "died" in the Marvel comics and was rebuilt into Goldbug so I wouldn't count anything out

    I think scourage leaves him in a comatose state , maybe the maximals take care of his body trying to keep his vitals stable. Prime and company go get the mcguffin required to save him. (Speculation!)

    I think part of your speculation is possible I do think the Maximals will take care of Bee or help repair or bring him back to life and maybe give him his off-road look.
