    What's pretty cool is how consistent Megatron has looked since he was revealed back in early August 2016. They usually change things here and there between the time a character is first revealed and when the final product is shown.

    First post, but after 4 movies it was time sign up and jump in. Wish we could get a live-action movie based on the theories posted in these forums.

    Personally, I really like Barricade's look. Those eyes are bad ass! Megs' best look to date. Hopefully, his role will live up to his visual. OP's swagger in that action poster should have a 'BOSS' tag line attached.

    And Hot Rod. Frequent complaints about his look. I like it. Remember Bee's first in the first film? Prime's rustic look in AoE? Their upgrades to newer versions were awesome scenes in the movie. Maybe, just maybe, that will happen with Hot Rod given the ho-hum feedback on his look. Can you imagine an upgrade similar to the version of Hot Rod we all know and love? That would make for a 'wow' moment. Probably a pipe dream, but we can dream can't we?

    Generally, based on working everyday with people from different places.

    I think the various types of british and irish english speakers would naturally pronounce it that way.

    American english speakers are more likely to go for the standard short "a", like in Batman.

    Canadian english is similar to american but they have those celtic inflections on the vowels so it could go either way depending on how thick their canadian is :) 

    Aussies will use a short "a" like Americans but they'll draw it out for 10 seconds with gradually rising intonation! ;) 

    Again, this is generally speaking, based on my friends and colleagues from those countries.

    My favorite one is Optimus, and not just because he's my favorite. I still can't get over that sword flip, and the spooky way his optics change from blue to purple at the end.
    My second favorite is probably Hound. Gotta love that wink!

    Barricade looks awesome

    Optimus looks evil

    Megatron looks amazeballs

    Bee looks.......like Bee

    Hound still looks like Bulkhead

    Hot Rod looks like a Bee knockoff

    Cogman looks generic

    Sqweeks.....BB8 would like a word with you

    I noticed something when comparing Megatron to Barricade. So you remember how the first poster of Megatron showed him with a bit of purple in his red optics unlike Optimus who's optics had been changed completely to purple. Well when I was watching the motion posters, I immediately noticed a difference between Megatron's and Barricade's red optics.

    If you look closely, Barricade's are actually a much brighter red which results in Megatron's to come off as a bit purplish. I'm starting to believe more and more that whatever has been placed in Optimus to control him, has been placed in Megatron but not as strong since his optics is only a slight shade of purple rather than fully purple, still giving off a mostly red appearance as a result.

    I'm calling it--Barricade will be the main villain for the Bumblebee movie.

    I'm loving these posters. Cogman's eye twitch, Hound's wink, and I'm waiting for Sqweeks to pull out the huge ass gun.

    Just noticed that Barricade is sporting a chain around his neck. So he's both a rapper and a cop now? "F*ck da po-leese! Oh, wait..." :D 

    Bee's "twin" brother, apparently. They share a lot of design cues. I think the creators shoehorned the Lambo twins relationship (Sideswipe and Sunstreaker) and reworked it for Bee and Hot Rod instead. Probably wanted to re-do the brothers thing better after the flak they took over the other twins, Mudflap and Skids. Just my guess.

    He was more traditional (blocky) in design:

    He's still my favorite design out of the movieverse.

    Sentinel is a very cool, knightly design. Also the first time we saw metal parts acting like fabric billowing in the wind (Sentinel's firetruck parts acting like a pliable cape/cloak, then Crosshairs' trenchcoat)

    I just love the fact we have character posters for the transformers themselves. It really sends a message that the writers room wanted the robots to be more front and center than before. Maybe the trailers are purposefully showing more humans than bots so to surprise us how much both time we get in the full film

    We do, but it's being discussed in another thread specifically for the IMAX poster. I think the wrong thread may have gotten linked on the frontpage.

    Somehow, I actually imagined Cogman to be a butler like Transformer. Just a Autobot wearing a butler suit and maybe a top hat. Somehow, this looks to me like a crossover of Bumblebee and Ultron.
