    It's Paramount trying to keep interest in the films going by keeping the original film aesthetic as intact as possible while also trying to please Hasbro who is going full G1 with everything.

    Technically they did with TLK, but it happens in the BB film probably to explain why he can't (or isn't supposed to because he does at one point) talk in the first film. If they decide to go full break-away reboot with BB, I bet his voice gets fixed much quicker since nothing would make the films seem different than a talking Bumblebee for a change.

    Bumblebee loses his memories early in the film, after he gets his ass kicked by Blitzwing, before he meets Charlie, which is why he's acting like a scared puppy. He later gets his memories back before the final fight which allows him to get his weapons systems online again.

    His battle mask isn't exactly friendly looking, though, which is why his default is the more rounded, human like face. It makes it easier for him to emote with a humanoid facial structure which given he can't talk is a much more important facet of his animation.

    The film wants to be a more kid-friendly transformers action film aiming for the family demographic, instead of the young teen/adult market the last five have.

    @Jazz of Staniz @T69xRiPx it looks to me like the Optimus in this preview matches close to Nizzi’s vision. But yeah...... Toys! :)

    If this is a continuation of the Bayverse franchise, then Megatron is frozen on Earth. Cybertron would be entrusted to Shockwave by Megatron.

    Ok, I'll go see it, it might be good. I don't like it so far but that trailer looked pretty awesome.

    Still not thrilled about a Transformers movie based around only 1 character. Transformers was never about only 1 character. But they're not going to stop ramming Bumblebee down our throats & it's not like there's anything better playing. So why not?

    SWEET! DO IT!
    (But I still have a soft spot for Transformers:Cybertron)

    Well, IDW did the Spotlight focus comics a long while back. I consider it something like that, which is a perfect vehicle for experimenting with the new neo-retro G1 designs.

    I\'d buy the Cybertron-version toys, if they were of nice quality. I haven\'t bought a movie toy in years. (except Masterpiece Movie Barricade and Studio Series Blackout) And I\'m genuinely excited to see the film now.

    That would be pretty damn hilarious. Not just for Bumblebee but for the franchise as a whole. Those two should always appear, never be named, and always be sold together as a set. The names should forever be ambiguous.

    I don't see why they wouldn't. Michael Bay already had his own skit so they need one for Knight to follow up.

    So Deadpool 2 is being re-released to theaters as PG-13 on December 21 this year giving Bumblebee more competition at the Box Office.

    If Bumblebee ends up being a reboot I would not say "No" to this aesthetic! ♡

    IDK I think the New Optimus Prime from the movie looks a lot like it takes it's ques from the Prime 1 Studio PMTF-01 Optimus Prime.

    Yeah so it's not just a Pg-13 version of Deadpool 2, it might a new Deadpool movie all together.
