    He's a good audience surrogate due to his small size and friendly, non-threatening demeanor, due to how he's designed and characterized he's a really good fit for the role. The movies could have done this but for the most part never really committed. The Bee movie did a better job making him actually like the character, not the mostly blank slate that original Bay movie Bee was.

    I don't think the issue is that Bee is often a main character, it's just that he's portrayed poorly / written badly.

    Yeah. It actually occurred to me how cool bumblebee is rewatching the old show. He’s got some charm. The movies just make him a weaponised pet.

    In my case the issue is Bee often the main character. I wish other Transformers had chances to get that much screen time from movie to movie.

    If the idea of eye color changing when a transformer goes berserk continues I'd like to see it done with prime to give them yellow eyes

    That’d be cool if they went with it. Maybe even go slightly subtle with it.

    Personally I don’t think it’s a very good prequel at all. So many holes in the story and Bayverse never had holes in the story. I can’t believe they call it a prequel. Hoping for TF6 to conclude the Unicron Saga.

    May I ask, is this account a joke, or do you really believe these things?

    Believe that bayformers is this good. I've never seen someone who loves that franchise this much.

    i'm not the best when it comes to 3d animation terminolgy but it looks like the rig's neck is colliding with the body, my theory as to why is that the character was meant to be blitzwing as shown in the trailer and since it seems starscream's addition was a last minute change they didn't have time to adjust the animation for the new model

    I would assume so because the second trailer came out around September I think

    My take on the opening scene of Bumblebee 2:
    Dead End: B-127 murdered 3 decepticons
    (Archive footage from Bumblebee: B-127 kills Blitzwing)
    Dead End: Blitzwing
    (Archive footage from Bumblebee: Bumblebee kills Dropkick)
    Dead End: Dropkick
    (Archive footage from Bumblebee: Bumblebee goes underwater as a boat crushes Shatter to death)
    Dead End: Shatter, We will kill all the Autobots one by one, B-127 must be forced to watch the other Autobots die then after we're done with B-127 he will die and i will bury him next to Blitzwing

    Do you really think that Paramount and Hasbro are going to continue with the Michael Bay saga after the commercial and critical failure of The Last Knight causing Bumblebee to be altered during its production so that it is now a Reboot, it is hilarious also to think that Hasbro does not have him I respect The Last Knight by making sure that in the Studio Series most of the figures from that movie are just repainted and that the only new mold (WW2 Bumblebee) is complete rubbish

    Bayverse is already dead, now Paramount and Hasbro are going to focus on continuing what Bumblebee left

    Nice. Stunticons/Menasor FTW, and hopefully they'll get done right.

    I'm sure they're trolling.

    But anyways, yes, we should continue Bumblebee as the launchpad for the HasbroVerse, a proper cinematic universe.

    I'd like a fresh approach, that starts with Megatron and Orion Pax as youths on Cybertron

    I'm hoping the supposed Optimus/Bumblebee+whatever human movie is about them rounding up those seven Autobots who made it to earth. Or if they really want to try and make a TFCU, use that as the springboard point. Who were the seven that landed on earth? Let us get individual movies with some of them, or duo movies (Ironhide/Ratchet, Wheeljack/Brawn come to mind as pair films) before the big Autobots v Decepticons movie now that we know who these guys are
