    No Flamewar, but it looks like I get Airachnid, so I can't complain too much.

    It’s for their Transforming Cogs, not the Matrix.

    Why are people upset again? Cause the trailer is jokey?

    If so, then c'mon. This is what literally every animated movie trailer does. They're not gonna spoil the plot in the trailer for us.

    It's almost like this fanbase wants the reputation of hating everything. Or just wants the franchise to die entirely so they never have to see anything new

    Hey man, I love Beast Wars, it's one of my favorite animated shows ever and the best TF product ever produced for screen. But let's not kid ourselves, they had Rhinox fart gags.

    If you showed just clips of BW's dumbest stuff, it would luck WAAAAY lower brow than this trailer.

    So how's about we wait until we can see the actual film, instead of just a trailer, before we start doom posting?

    It was a different type of silly is what I think he's getting at. And he is right. While G1 had it's ridiculous episodes it wasn't this type of quirky silly.

    I am aware. But they didn't comprise the entirety of the show, now did they? Unless this trailer is misrepresenting the tone/comedic style of the film, that's the conclusion I have to come to about it.

    I don’t understand why people are bitching about Megatron, he is not Megatron. Isn’t the entire trailer about that actually?

    Not what I expected, but I think I could be down with it, as I've liked all alternate interpretations of Transformers bar TF:Animated

    It’s a trailer. OF COURSE it’s misrepresenting the film! Unless you’ve forgotten that Transformers media itself is one massive commercial which has been misrepresenting toys since 1984.

    I’ve been thinking on this and I’m very curious about two things I am not liking so far:

    1.) Transformations are a privilege? This is new but one I don’t necessarily like. Every cybertronian should be able to do this.

    2.) The buddy dynamic between Pax and Megatron is a good thing to explore, BUT I don’t like how it’s being done here. Is Megatron gonna be evil or just “morally grey bad”?

    I’m reserving some judgement on this film, as I actually like some of the designs. However, I’m not sure what this movie will even be. Which is good and bad.

    This is TFW: everyone has an inalienable Primus-given right to doompost. We just also have the right to relentlessly mock the doomposting. All is as it should be.

    Boy do I LOVE* movie years.

    Everyone, you can like this movie you haven't even seen yet, without being adversarial clowns about it.

    Absolutely, if anyone has doubts about Brian Tyree Henry's ability to fit a voice to a character just compare how he sounds as Paper Boi in Atlanta to his actual voice. His VA will be much more menacing and commanding when he's Megatron.

    Though on the note of Atlanta I'll be disappointed if this isn't the dynamic between Megatron and Starscream. (warning for swearing).
