^Yeah, this! New character FTW!
Oh Bay, you are full of surprises!
All directors shoot scenes a bunch of times. Making movies is actually really boring.
Well he's certainly thrown us a curve-ball here. It's pretty much the last thing anyone would've expected.
I think it's kinda funny how people want it to be Goldbug or Bumper, or some other transformer than Bumblebee. And others just don't want to believe it.
It's probably just Bumblebee playing a joke on Sam. It'll be a brief reformat, I'm sure he'll revert to form after a few short scenes. Bay will have a laugh, Hasbro will get a new Bumblebee figure out of it, and the familiar Camaro will be back onscreen before we've even had a chance to miss it.
This will be hard to discern.
I agree entirely. I'm not seeing a problem with BB "downgrading", and we've seen the most recent Camaro which is obviously Bumblebee, so it's not like BB is going back into sucky-car mode for half the movie.
I've also heard the robot design for BB got tweaked a little to show how he's gotten "older", so maybe this "new" form will help introduce it a bit.
has anyone taken into account that regardless of what Sam does, technically everyone in the US (if not the world) should know who Sam is because of the Fallen's public service announcement in ROTF..?
Can anyone tell if that's a Jaguar or an Autobot insignia on the wheel..?
mozilla firefox image zoom to the rescue... it is jaguar emblem..
^You know, I think you've hit the nail on the whole "OMG it's a different character issue!"
I hope it's Bumblejumper! that would be a longshot but would be pretty sweet.
How could Sam do this to Bee? Why Wtwilckson why!?
Looks cool. Might be for the most part a down to Earth. (As far as that goes for Giant [email protected]*£$ robots) Film
I wonder if this is another Bay trick on us. It's a pretty funny trick if it is. otherwise bee has no sense of style.
I was hoping Bumblebee would be back with the other Autobots by now, not still acting as Sam's taxi.
Hell even Sam mentions this in RoTF but it's another plot point that was never followed up on.
Anyway, this could be just a regular car I guess.
Was the silver Gullwing Mercedes part of this set up too ?
Ok this is what I think some of the cars have like different tags on the back of the car and the museum is named like russian name navy bumblebee car couldn't make it their so he had to chosse that one for now make sense idk well have to wait and see..... Ps Michael bay please confirm who Ll those new robots are please
There's pics up of a blue/purple looking car that is a mercedes seen on-set driving around with other cars in chicago filming! Better not be stupid, Jolt...
yeah, i remember seeing that car in some photos a while ago with rosie and shia....
'72 510, well worth it. I still think is bumble. Why? He is Sams guardian. Think about it. What were half of the autobots in the cartoon? Datsun/Nissan. I am under the impression that this is bumble messin with sam because-
A: Bumble misses mikaela, doesn't like current situation w/new girl and new job.
B: Bumble just wants to get a point across to Sam.
C: all of the above.
personally and until shown otherwise in the movie , I think that script is closer to the movie than a lot of people are giving credit
ignore the aston martins IMO .. I dont think they are pat of this shoot tbh
just this niggling feeling that the script may be on the right tracks and that bay has answered the fans call for G1'esque movie except has gone a bit too far with it
I doubt it. Bumblebee has been sighted as the most recent version of the Camaro in Chicago, so whatever the deal with the Datsun it's not permement.
And I don't remember anybody calling for gun-laden, jet-powered NASCAR vehicles racing in downtown Chicago (Bay evidently films in "high speed", so everything goes faster in the film than in real life).
Jolt was a Chevy Volt in ROTF, and I don't think they would give him such a drastic change in alt. mode considering he was such a small character. I think the Mercedes is a new character. Also note that in ROTF the only foreign made car transformer was a decepticon...
