    What if they gave all the males colored lips too?

    If it were a visual detail that applied to the whole Cybertronian race, it would be a different matter. As it is though, it's just an identifier for gender.

    Well yeah, but that's what animation usually does for males and females. Guys obviously have lips IRL but they don't really draw them barring special cases.
    But I mean, look at TFA Optimus. He's got some nice lips.

    It's not actual concept art, but I think they could've made this work, I mean I get why they didn't and how the current look has been more allusive to the character, but combined with Dylan's voice it gives that small but brave youngster upbeat vibe rather than the kinda Clumsy and baby-ish it gave me, I'm happy with what they went with anyhow.

    I still wish we got Hubcap as well as Cliffjumper for a specific reason. Would've given that more bite

    I bet if you asked the film makers that question they’d say “it’d be too confusing to have two short yellow characters!”
    I like it. If I saw him smiling I might believe it more. Neat.

    Best I can do, it actually kinda resembles his VA counterpart now that I think about it

    I'm glad we didn't get something like that. That face was fine for Cliffjumper's short cameo, but it's honestly kind of creepy-looking (I'd argue even more so than some of the Bay faces). It wouldn't work at all for the main character, it would likely have repulsed audiences. Bumblebee's role called for something gentler and friendlier. The design they used was great, it found a perfect blend between G1 Bee and Bayverse Bee.

    Among those many characters. Which one of them, do you wish to see turn into actual figures? Movie accurate, non-transformable but fully articulated in large size?

    I want all of the characters in the same aesthetic and quality as studio series BB Optimus. Transforming into alt modes from earth. They don’t need to be accurate or the basis for the next set of movies, but I just want a full line up of those characters. Also that megatron they keep hiding from us. And a Camaro bumblebee but cute and is actually a good toy.
