Smart approach as opposed to the “die and come back 5 times” approach they’ve taken in the past.
Peter Cullen back to voice Optimus Prime? That\'s enough for me to be excited. I just hope the characters are done justice.
I'm glad they went back to the original font/logo.
I'm sad to hear that we'll probably won't see this design again
Though, i hope the updated version it's not too different.
Literally only thing better than Cybertron Scourge is RID Scourge.
TRANSF RMERS? Brave move to update the brand name!
I hope Rhinox, Primal, and Airazor form Magnaboss because who cares about lore give me some cool toys.
Why in the fuck is Mirage a Porsche 911? Unless a miracle has occurred and Porsche is willing to grant a license. Otherwise we'll get no accurate toys...
Yeah, that's what's throwing me, too. There is a time skip of seven years that doesn't seem to be acknowledged at all.
The fact Optimus Prime is involved left me disapointed that it wasn't "Transformers: Primal Instinct"
The LAST time I heard something say it was about learning how to be a better leader, or rather what it meant to be a Prime, was Transformers Prime and we all know how THAT was a complete and utter misrepresentation of what we got after the beginning of Season 2.
I mean, the idea of Prime having to learn how to be a better leader after millions of years of war just seems oblivious to the fact he's been doing this job for millions of years and clearly has been decent enough at the job to not have had the Autobots all get destroyed by the Decepticons well before the opening scene of Bumblebee.
Where\'s my boy Megatron and the other Decepticons?
Sound like maybe the chest is gonna be mainly changed
As long as they're using this design as the base, I'm happy.
Because Paramount probably gets a kickback for using certain branded cars and that's more important to the studio than the toys. And HasTak have (rightly) assumed more people car about the bot modes these days than the alt modes..because they can just buy car toys anywhere.
EDIT: Oh funny the Youtube guy famous for doing reviews of stolen toys was brought on set for an early look.
Probably to accommodate for the new vehicle. Like Evasion Mode Prime vs. OT Prime.
My biggest question right now is who is coming back to voice Primal; Garry Chalk or Ron Perlman?
While it's an interesting concept, I'll remain firmly planted in the "I really hope they don't bite off more than they can chew" camp for now. If they try to shoe-horn the entirety of Transformers history into one movie, then uber-control the writers room and the director from the top down with ten thousand bosses all wanting their favorite story element, we'll end up in farcical failure territory. If they give the writers some breathing room, and let the director take the movie where it needs to go, and everybody along the way keeps the focus on character and story beats that make sense, it could really be something special.
I don't know that there's any option for it to mediocre with what they've revealed. Super, or garbage. Either way, popcorn at the ready.
man, hasbro is really unwilling to break from that arcee being a motorcycle trend for more than a bit huh?
Going by Di Bonaventura said, his role in production aside, it’s hard to believe he watched the Bumblebee movie. That movie was pretty much a reboot, it’s a stretch and forced to even somehow retcon it into the Bayverse and wouldn’t make sense, even with TLK already retconning that the Autobots had arrived well ahead of 2007. It’s almost as bad as the time Hasbro tried to shoehorn the WFC/FOC games into TF Prime aligned continuity.
Best to let the Bayverse be and leave it alone, they’re lucky they got 10 years out of it.
Hold up, Scourge might have a goatee that's on fire? Hahaha fuck, sign me up.
