    Regarding the bold statement, that's not necessarily true. Art often changes during creation. Maybe someone set out to film a dog, but saw a pretty cat and decided "hey, this'll make a better video than what I had in mind". Or maybe they couldn't get their dog to do the trick for the video, but the cat did something funny so the person turned the camera and filmed that instead.

    But even if filming the cat was a total accident (like the person couldn't tell the difference or something), that still doesn't make it an objectively bad video. You're right, the person did objectively fail to accomplish their goal. But it could still be a good video. Spielberg failed to accomplish his goal with Jaws (the shark prop didn't work), but most people still consider Jaws a good movie.

    Pretty sure Megatron is the same size as Optimus Prime in most TF iterations. It was only the movies and Animated where this wasn't so.
    Also clearly both of them grew when they got the transformation cogs from Alpha Trion.

    That beastformer was purple, and now that we have seen Alpha Trion's alt mode, it is clearly him.
    That's Airachnid, she is mostly black and has the horned helmet. You can see Elita carrying her around in the final scene where Bee cuts the ship cockpit apart.

    Umm, no, he hasn't?
    -G1: Megatron is the same size as Prime in both Marvel comics and cartoon, or later in DW and IDW
    -G2: the toys might be different, but in Marvel G2 Megatron and Prime are the same size.
    -RID 2001: Optimus combined with his trailer is as tall or even bigger than Megatron
    -Armada: Combined with his trailer, Optimus is bigger than Megatron.
    -Energon: Same
    -Cybertron: Same
    -Animated: Megatron is bigger than Optimus
    -Movies: Megatron is bigger than Optimus - changes once he combines with Jetfire
    -Prime: Optimus is maybe a head shorter than Megatron, not that noticable.
    -RID 2015: Pretty sure Megatron never appears here, but Megatronus is about the same size as Optimus.
    -Cyberverse: Prime and Megatron are the same size. Megatron X is a lot bigger than both of them.
    -Earthspark: Prime and Megatron are the same size.

    So if you check in most cases they are either the same size, or Prime combines with his trailer and is LARGER than Optimus. Only in the movies is Megatron bigger, and the other case is Animated, but in that show, all flying Decepticons are a lot bigger than Autobots. (non-flying ones like Swindle or Blackarachnia were former Autobots)

    Just watched the trailer like twice more.

    I stand by my first thoughts:

    It looks like a LOT of fun.

    I'm excited for the world-building.

    Definitely the sort of thing the brand needs to bring in new kids. I hope there is just a barrage of merch. I want to see bright, fun TF stuff everywhere.


    -ZacWilliam, whether it's successful or not this absolutely feels like the right move from Hasbro. You have a toyline you make something like this to get kids to love it.

    Look, if all of you time travellers are going to keep sharing your reviews of this movie from September the least you could do is bring some lotto numbers back with you.

    I believe you subjectively think you do.

    I need to go back and rewatch that whole show start to finish.

    Great trailer, so much passion has gone into this movie and it shows. I loved the Bayformer Trilogy and I'm glad we're getting something clearly and distinctly different from those movies. It was really interesting hearing the clear Cullen influence in how Chris Heimsworth portrays Orion Pax and I hope to see notes of that in Brian Tyree Henry's portrayal of D-16 and eventually Megatron. I know some people are probably unsatisfied with how Bumblebee is portrayed in the trailer but him being the comedy relief character is how he's been in every movie since 2007, taking it a step further and letting Bumblebee actually talk makes something familiar new and I love Keghan Micheal Key's portrayal is a fun take on the character. We didn't hear much of Elita-1 in the trailer which was unfortunate but the little we did hear sounded perfectly fine and not out of character. One Alpha Trion was a super interesting take where they've blended a lot of different versions of the character together that give off a really cool vibe with a truly incredible design and having him voiced by Laurence Fischbourne was really cool as well.

    There's a bunch more stuff in the trailer that looks interesting and has me on the edge of my seat in anticipation for the movie's release. I really hope this movie sticks it's landing and from this first trailer alone I think it will.

    I'm required by the little ones in my life to atleast see it as many times as they want, and I'm okay with that :)  .

    Sorry, here you go

    I'm pretty sure every single person involved with Transformers films has exactly zero comprehension of what the concepts of canon and continuity actually mean to fans. It's pointless to even ask them about it because their minds are just not anywhere close to that wavelength.
