    starscream donsen't need Megateon to work. While he does try to steal leadership, hunting down an autobot donsen't seem out of character.

    I was not bashing the names, as I surmise you know, merely trying to make a pun (starving for ice cream). Well done!

    I'm not too thrilled about it not being Starscream but I'm not mad about it either. I am still willing to give Travis Knight and this movie a chance, it's just gonna take a while to get used to it. I think some people are overreacting a bit, the movie is still 6 months away and people are already given up on this movie.

    Very much like I did for previous TF movies, I will go and see Bumblebee multiple times. I won't change that no matter what.

    But if you take a look at the comments and social media posts, the buzz which was generated with the trailer had gone down the drain since yesterday. The name was up in the air (pun intended), that's true... but it is clear to me that casual fans have not taken the name change too well.

    Movies are NOT G1. They shouldn't have to be. But with all the info drops for Bumblebee stating 'going back to the roots' and 'inspired by G1', this new announcement sure was a poke in the eye for fans who instantly recognized the robot as Starscream from G1. The colors, the looks, the transformation was spot on. Casual fans had no other reason to think otherwise.

    For me this was an eye opener on how many casual moviegoers recognize G1.

    Blitzwing's design is 100% inspired by G1. I take it as a welcome homage from the filmmakers.

    It's a shame so many people jumped to a conclusion and then got pissed off when logic won out. But that's the internet in 2018 for you.

    It's a homage to the wrong character, which happens to be among the 5 most well known and beloved franchise staples since the beginning. If any other franchise pulled this kind of stunt the reaction would have been far far less civil. Characters matter. Design matters.

    Fuck yes I'm still interested.
    It's kind of sad that people are thinking of skipping the movie just because of the way one character looks in one scene of the movie. It's too soon to judge what will be done with the character or even if the Starscream-esque design or color scheme will stick. And even if it does, it won't automatically make it a bad movie.

    Yes, I'm still interested in the movie. The character's name does very little/nothing on my decision on whether or not to see the movie.

    Eh, my feelings really haven't changed. Which is to say, if it gets a decent enough reception, sure, I'll bite.

    It'd be a bizzare reason to lose faith in the film altogether. I'm disappointed that it's not Starscream, but the reason I'm excited for the movie is because it looks bloody good.

    The whole Blitzwing situation in itself was spawned out of trying to do something nice for the fans, regardless of what the end effect was.

    This isn't so much directed at this forum but I'm aggravated by some of the personal attacks I've seen on Twitter over this. Travis Knight could well be the best thing that's happened to this franchise in over a decade, don't drive him away.
