    Barricade got wounded, not killed in the 2007 movie. Also, even though he did die in Dark of the Moon, Galvatron/Megatron making a point of looking for his body and doing to Barricade what was done to him would make sense, seeing as how Barricade was fanatically loyal to Megs. An evil overlord can never have enough true believers on their side.

    I guess it's safe to say that this'll won't go well.

    Looks like a ridiculously out of touch attempt to create BB-8. Outside of Optimus Prime (minus the flames), who is the designer for these things? Only positive from this is it is a practical effect.

    I read somewhere that it was the new megatron. Honestly, at least they didn't disappoint. I'm used to megs looking like poop in these movies.

    Looks like Michael Bay is doing a modern adaptation of the great Transformers G1 episode titled "The Girl Who Loved Powerglide."

    I hope he introduces breakdancing Transformers in another movie dubbed Energon Boogaloo.

    Edit:

    Don't forget about other great G1 episodes like The Golden Lagoon, A Decepticon Raider in King Arthur's Court, and Carnage in C-Minor.

    I hope it's just a battle mask similar to Prime. Otherwise, yeah, that's pretty accurate.

    It's M.Bay. You know Bruticus is going to have truck balls swinging, or something else lame that undermines his presence.

    Not only do things have to be good, they have to make money. There have been 3 really solid entries into TF Gaming (one practically is the G1 game we didn't know that we wanted). Critical successes, but won't be continuing sadly. I hope this movie pulls a Fast and Furious and gets a solid entry. However, with Bay at the helm and not reigned in, I doubt it will change. Its sad because he has the capability to be a good director, but goes backwards when he should have gone right.

    So sad that Bay is doing a 5th one. Why? Because we've already long-since experienced his Vision of the TFers, as well as been exposed to more than enough of his characters and overall movie-making style. There's really nothing left to anticipate. It's just going to be remix of the same crap.

    Same bay'isms, same bay characters, same CGI 'splosions, you can count on the movie runtime to be long as f**k, U.S military fetish that no one else seems to appreciate but Bay, select female characters who are only there to look hot and get in the way (yet manage to make the save for our heroes at one crucial point), that (1) over-the-top human character they try to write as larger than life but only comes off as obnoxious and makes the audience facepalm, a trigger happy Optimus Prime that borders on homicidal but somehow manages to retain juuuuuust enough of his composure & morality to not go full-blown Decepticon on us in each movie, a nigh-mentally challenged bumblebee that never seems to get his voicebox fixed, etc.

    The movie hasn't even done filming and i feel like I've already SEEN it....4 years ago....Yeesh.

    It's long-overdue to give someone else a shot with this series.

    The more I see that design, the greater it pisses me off. I mean, the character speaks to the Bay awesomeness hard on. The name alone is what you would think a Michael Bay character would be. This thing basically looks like a bad representation of G2 Sideswipe. Most of the other character design interpretations (sans for Prime flames) I didn't really mind. For a character named Hot Rod, this looks rather tepid.

    Meh. I'm kinda used to the movie bayverse TFers looking ugly as sin. There have only been a handful of the total bayverse designs that i ever liked. Everybody else looked like a walking pile of scrapmetal.

    Blackout from the first movie is one of the few examples i can think of, that i really liked.

    By god. Some of these new designs!

    It's almost as if "ugly as sin", is a requirement for any new bots they cook up.

    First off, that card was used(wasted) in ROTF. The WORST of all the Bay movies.

    Secondly, Bay's Optimus just doesn't have the level of charisma or other endearing elements that G1 Prime had.

  • Optimus124Optimus124 Joined: Posts: 3,675
    The designs from AOE I didn't find terrible. They had a lot more character than some of the others from the previous movie. I think the problem is that these designs don't translate in any way to a toy design. All of the toys from AOE (sans Hound, Evasion Prime, and Bumblebee) just had chunks of car hanging off. ROTF Prime (love of hate) was an impressive movie design and they found a way for the mainline figure to transform in an almost 1:1 replication. The new design is cool, but there is no possible way for that to become a toy. Other than the pipes, you really can't tell what the alt mode is.

    I have a huge problem with Drift. Why would a character that is engrossed in Japanese culture have an alt mode that is of German design? They couldn't have used a GTR?

    Image of Barricade's robot mode:

    Either one of two things.
    1. Galvatron reverts back to Megatron over time
    2. Some new entity recreates Megatron



    Really good? It's hideous.

    To be honest I kinda dig it also. Reminds me of a mashup of TF Prime version of Megatron and Ultron. They have redesigned the battle mask as its a lot smoother now (doesn't look like a vagina anymore).

    Also, why does Megs dwarf all the other revealed bots? Not talking by like 5-10', but he's nearly twice as tall as everyone else.

    Optimus has been ~32' or so since TF2007, and the leaders of factions in Transformers tend to have a height advantage in most continuities. Also, I think Megs is actually a bit shorter now than he was before.

    I know canonically Optimus and Megatron have always been among the larger bots to designate their leader status, but I don't recall the height discrepancies being that large, even in the previous films.

    Although that may be because the camera never stands still long enough for anyone to get an accurate idea of how tall anyone is, let alone specific details of their designs.

    Yeah, it's always been like that. Here is the scale guide from ROTF. The height has remained pretty consistent.
