    The Countdown begins now! Figured we should have a thread to dump our excitement for the upcoming trailer in February during the superbowl. Hopefully its full of action and gives us an idea of the plot. Which transformers do you want to see featured in it?

    My guess it the trailer is going to feature some archaeologists uncovering Grimlock's body in the sand like, y'know, a fossil or whatever.

    It will be full action and it won't give you an idea of the plot. Keep in mind this is Super Bowl, they only have 30 seconds to engage your attention. If it involves some sort of mystery and leaves the GENERAL audience wondering what it was all about, then it won't be in it. On the other hand if there are great visuals and a big money shot in the end of it it, then that is a where the money is going

    I'm betting its a narrative.. no action clips. Pretty much the superbowl commercial you go to the bathroom while it's playing.

    There's nothing wrong with the FOC designs. They both invoke their G1 selves and bring a fresh new look to the way people see Transformers.

    Superbowl trailer will be okay but I'm waiting on the full trailer. Thanks to the internet age giving us high def trailers whenever we want it the full trailer will be even better than don't blink because a Superbowl ad is just 30 seconds.

    I know, right?! How DARE people have an opinion on a forum?! The nerve of it!

    I happen to like the designs in FOC.. but for the game only. I don't think these designs would work in the movieverse.

    While I'm not a huge fan of the movie designs, they work! The Comic designs wouldn't work in the movie, and the Game designs are too blocky and bulky. In FOC, even the alt modes are bulky, which is why they work.. both modes have the same feel. In the movies, the alt modes can be pretty complex; so to make it believable, you have to incorporate the idea that the bots are, themselves, a series of very intricate parts than can take any form within their components.
    That kind of bulk just wouldn't work on earth.

    I saw speculation yesterday that we were getting the spot, then a full teaser trailer, is this accurate or just fan speculation?

    Super Bowl trailer for ROTF. God damn, the feels and expectations I got for that movie. Oh, and the ton of threads of people thinking Demolishor was Devastator on a wheel.

    DOTM's trailer had that whole 'doomsday is now' feel.

    Work or doesn't work just sort of always comes down to a person opinion. What works for some people just doesn't work and appeal to someone else. Like for me the designs from the first three films don't work because too many outer parts means too many places for something to get wedged, not enough armor to protect vital area of something going into battle, and the robots just don't look like they belong to the same species. Throw in a far too limited color pallet and some scenes came off a jumbled mess of parts.

    As to how well the new designs will work on film, well it's just too hard to say at this point since we haven't seen the designs in action yet. But the movie business does have some insanely talented people when it comes to CGI effects and this film may have to sell itself on the effects so we will see once they polished up a trailer.
