    Agreed. I also think this script page is fake and just a red herring to keep the real one top secret to avoid the leaks

    Except there's not room for everyone, not when so many different versions of TF contradict each other. The only reason why BW and G1 can coexist is because of how many new names were created for BW (plus the time travel aspect, when it's included). Unless every single movie is some kind of time travel and/or multiversal story, then you can't, for example, have both G1 and Armada Red Alert or both G1 and Armada Wheeljack. That's why I'd much prefer for these new films to carve their own identity, like Bayformers did.

    Right now, the reaction to this movie is set to be Unicron Trilogy and Aligned fans complaining about being left out, while Geewunners, likely alongside their BW counterparts, complain about every little difference from G1 and Beast Wars.

    I’ve developed this theory in my head that Mirage may be the new “companion” if that makes sense. It would surely be a nice change of pace from Bumblebee always in that role. Based on the script leak and Mirage being the vehicle on set it leads me to believe that the human lead and Mirage may be similar to some degree (getting into trouble, issues with authority) and might have that Spike/Sam and Bumblebbe relationship from G1 and ‘07.

    These aren't little differences. They're frickin huge differences! HUGE! :bay 

    These changes will create another sub-fandom which will hate all of us for liking our fandom, again, and again.

    I'm tired of the hate. I want it to stop.

    Am I alone in really disliking the individual bots ability to self scan in all of these live action movies and become any vehicle? Imagine watching the G1 cartoon and one week Prime’s a CoE, then next week a pick up then the week after a speed boat, I don’t think I’d have become such a fan. I don’t mind in different continuities a bot having an alternate alt mode, but I prefer the idea that they are given a singular mode that they are stuck with.

    I know it needs to be this way because movie industry needs to do what it's got to do but seeing a decent looking 911 cut up to be a movie car is kinda sad to me. I'm going to cross my fingers and hope it was a long gone junker that's had a makeover.

    They have different amounts of ground clearance and different body kits: the right one has less and a deeper kit o_O

    They use glassfiber copies for these type of cars. ;)  The base is a generic car that fits the porsche size, then gets a new top making it look like a real porsche.

    So basically, for this car they are using knockoffs :D

    I hope it's a beetle or something but it looks set up specifically to capture internal shots from behind the driver so it might be more cost effective to use a real car.

    And then some people are literally disputing that.

    See BassX0's recent claims that G2 "didn't fail" and "toys often get cancelled".
    So how come G2 failed

    It's something I think should be limited. I don't think characters should be able to take on completely different kinds of vehicle forms and I don't think they should be able to completely rework themselves into completely new robot designs.

    I'm guessing the one on the left is the stunt car as the raised ride height is more suitable for doing jumps and stuff.

    Except for Hound. That is what made him special, his holograms.
