    Well here's the thing, kids actually love cussing (same goes for violence, btw). So it's really just a matter of figuring out how much parents are willing to permit (again, same goes for violence). For whatever reason, parents tend to be more permissive about that sort of thing when it comes to theatrical movies than they are when it comes to TV shows. I guess their mindset is that it's more of a special event so a bit of swearing and extra violence is okay.

    frankly i'm just tired of the character in general but having him speak in radio bits is preferrable to "well that just happened"

    People on this website seem to forget we were kids when we started watching transformers. For this franchise to survive it needs kid appeal.

    I hope kids like it because every year I see the transformers shelf shrink smaller and smaller.

    Transformers was never a dark, gritty war story. It's a story about Optimus Prime learning how to play basketball. It's a story about Megatron using Kremzeek, a total accident, because he's depressed about all the Ls. It's about Powerglide going on dates with humans.

    So yeah the tone of this checks out.

    Not exactly expecting an optimus prime and megatron relationship doing loads of rubbish buddy humour as I thought that particular type of humour was already done with rotting the MCU from the inside but I guess they can attempt something different if they want to and after Michael Bay I have become pretty resilient to awful fiction so I haven't got the energy or emotional investment in this to become one of the grown men crying.

    That trailer looks like a lot of fun.

    A ton of interesting classic Transformers lore stuff, bright colors, fun characters.

    I'm quite looking forward to this film now.

    -ZacWilliam, wish I didn't have to wait till September honestly :)

    Surprisingly good to me. I like how it was all CG instead of CG integrated into live action. This looks more consistent onscreen. It’s lighthearted but seems like it’ll appeal more than TF Prime did. This has potential.

    Hopefully it’s treated as the start of its own series rather than tied into some previous series that has nothing to do with it beyond Lorenzo possibly saying it does down the line.

    Maybe you should rewatch Prime? If you think it's impossible to make a Transformers product not aimed babies that everyone can watch.

    It’s also well established that the Michael Bay films are not well-liked for their laissez-faire attitude towards violence.

    Rise of the beast altered the timeline so any bay movies are erased from existence.

    How aren't you all tired of childish Transformers media that can't be taken seriously? If you all want that just go watch cyberverse and rid 2015 damn

    Let's see...

    We have a loudmouthed, quippy, obnoxious, arrogant Bumblebee played by a black guy who acts as the comedy relief character. I wonder where that idea came from...

    You just sparked a thought, this, this is the piece of media that really gets new kids going into transformers again. If hasbro puts the toyline on shelves this could be huge for that growth. I remember seeing so many different movies as a kid from different franchises and wanting all the toys. This has similar vibes to Mario and sonic movies recently. The star power of the actors will help with the mainstream audience too
