    I should clarify...I wasn't saying he was the only one being reasonable and everyone else is being unreasonable. I have seen plenty of other reasonable posts, and I'm sure there were plenty I missed (I admittedly haven't read through every post related to this). I would agree that you've been reasonable about it. I just appreciated his concise stance of "it wouldn't be my choice, but let's wait and see." I have seen other people taking that stance, but at the same time I feel like more people could stand to. Myself included, honestly. I've probably devoted way too much time and effort to debating this issue, when I could have just used that one sentence to sum up my thoughts on it.

    Absolutely, and I think this is especially the case when filming on *film* vs. digital (and they deliberately chose to use film to add to the realism). When they opted to do 3D for DOTM onwards, 3D cameras are digital by default, so that helped accommodate things like red coloration, especially a fully-red character like Dino.

    If the characters will keep the heights they had in the Bumblebee movie, I think it's Optimus

    Peru: Transformers filming in Cusco authorized by Transport Ministry
    Peru: Transformers filming in Cusco authorized by Transport Ministry
    Cusco (Cusco region), Sep. 10
    The Ministry of Transport and Communications (MTC) has authorized the use of some roads in Cusco region for rehearsals and shooting of the seventh film in the famous Transformers saga (Transformers: Rise of the Beasts), which for the first time will include Peruvian settings such as the Southern Andean area.
    The MTC indicated that the Directorate of Road Circulation has granted permission to use sections of the Piri – Abra Málaga Highway; as well as the Montaña 28B Abra Málaga–Ruta Cusco–Quillabamba Road; and Piri – Alfamayo Road.
    Within this framework, the autobots and decepticons of the Transformers universe will travel on these routes.
    The authorization for the use of routes by the Hollywood production is valid from October 18 to November 12, 2021.
    According to the permit, the film's producer will have to comply with technical considerations and recommendations established by the MTC for the preservation of the aforementioned routes.
    Likewise, the team of the high-budget production must complete coordination with the National Police of Peru regarding the circulation of motorized vehicles, so that all the necessary guarantees can be provided for filming works to be carried out safely and without complications.
    This way, these Peruvian landscapes will be part of the new adventures of Transformers, whose alien characters will star in new adventures —this time near one of the New Seven Wonders of the World: Machu Picchu.
    No restrictions on tourism
    The Ministry of Culture affirmed that —during the four days of filming in the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu— there will be no restrictions for tourist activity.
    In remarks to AFP, Machu Picchu Archaeological Park Chief Jose Bastante said that "only the two actors and some members of the production team,” made up of more than 80 people, will enter the recordings.
    Transformers is a series of science fiction films based on a Japanese saga that started in the 1980s. The recent installment of films in its American version began in 2007.

    Well, you also have Jazz, arguably ROTF Megatron, and Soundwave's head designs in both films. You also have a case like Mirage/Dino where they explicitly ditched the namesake once it was absolutely clear he had zero in common with the original.

    That said, many, many characters in the Bay movies fulfilled similar or the same story roles as their prior namesakes, and I don't think visually resembling the G1 counterpart is the end all be all in cases where the original design was nothing to write home about (which, is extremely subjective, of course).

    For example, I don't think the Ironhide/Ratchet G1 design is anything special, so I'm fine with a visual reinvention while keeping the characterizations largely the same (although, Ratchet turning into an actual ambulance would have been nice). That is certainly not the case for every character, and for characters like Optimus and Shockwave there are absolutely definitive visual traits that are going to make their way into any interpretation of the character, and the Bay movies were no different in this regard.

    This has to be a different characters from the pole we saw a couple days ago with the camera on top. That one was about 12ft tall, this one is more like 16ft tall

    It's supposed to be ARG marketing for the film. So could be anything.
