See, now, the guys who made these videos get it right:

Having a Transformer switch modes is child's play.

Now, when an amateur can show Transformers chasing people and destroying lots of property as in the movie trailer, then I'll be impressed.

Childhood nostalgia must give way to real world physics.  It's similar to how the live action Batman must dress in an all-Black costume to really blend in with the shadows.  The blue/grey outfit won't work as cool as it is.

Felt more like "Independence Day meets Terminator". I hope the next trailer features the voice of Optimus Prime.


I suggest you go over to the official Transformers site and click on the "Trailers" button orbiting Cybertron.  Watch the latest trailer to the very end.  I think you'll be pleased.

Here is the link to the site:

Radical! Much obliged, Zeraze!  ;D
Do you prefer a hero who will confirm your deepest fears? Or a hero who will inspire faith in humanity and goodness?

A brand new image of Optimus Prime just hit the net.  It will appear on the latest issue of EMPIRE magazine

Megatron''s gun mode wa a great toy, but makes no sense for the character. For him not to transform in to a mode that is a - tiny; b- immobile and 3- needs someone else to hold him makes much more sense.

What's funny, and maybe ironic, is that Shockwave turned into a giant space gun, but never shrunk. I always thought the point of that was if Megatron ever needed someone to "rain down fire from the heavens" he could just call on Shockwave to do a spread shot (something similar happened anyway early in the Marvel comics version of Transformers). But imagine if Megatron HIMSELF turned into something similar, that's be scary as heck. Galvatron turned into a mobile mortar cannon, which was an upgrade from handheld gun fired by a lackey, but its still no gigantic space gun that can be fired from the sky.

I kinda wish they had did that for the movie, but I'm sure he'll look cool as a plane.

Kind of a side not, but in one of the Alien movies (2 or 4), the ship looked like one of the guns the Marines carried.

Yeah. Volkswagon wouldn't allow them to use the Bug since they don't want that car associated with war...

It would have made sense for him to look like any other smaller cars around. How big is the Ford Focus or Ford Escort? Or the Toyota Scion? Still the Mustang might work.

I think he's the guy who sells Bumblebee to Spike.
