Eh, I'm kinda hesitant about this movie. It won't be the same as the OG Transformers we're all used to. Don't know if it's been 100% confirmed though, but apparently this is the Optimus Prime for the movie

Whats so hard about making that truck RED??? Cant stand hollywood wanting to change and tweak things. Keep it like the cartoon dummies. And if he doesnt sound like Prime I'll go ape *****s. I can imagine him sounding like that spanish dude James Edward Almos.

Before, they said they were making Optimus a firetruck. Now, everyone is saying he's going to be a blue truck of some sort. Bumble-bee is going to be a damn Toyota Corolla. What's so hard about making him a VW Beetle?? The only guy they got right is Jazz, who will be a police car.

I think they could have made Megatron work. He could have turned into a cannon or a bazooka or something badass.

Beasties/Beast Wars was the best.

They should have made the movie about the transforming animals instead of transforming vehicles.

Cheetah/Cheetor or whatever his name was my favourite guy.

Saying Beast Wars is better than O.G. Transformers is like saying Yao is better than Wilt.

I think it goes as my 2nd favourite show behind power rangers in my childhood

btw, does anyone know why they changed the name from beast wars to beasties?

agreed 100%
I understand having to change megatron but why change stuff (prime) soley for the sake of change. Idiots.

On a side note I would have preferred a 3D Animated version as opposed to live action.

I can't believe people actually watched these shows. Granted,I did watch a little bit of pokemon and dragon ball z but I was never at the point where I was obsessed and payed 10$ to buy a ticket to watch the movie at the theater. I'm also not a big fan of anime.

Apparently, the guy who did the voice of Prime in the first generation episodes back in the eighties is doing the voice in the movie.

But the truck they are using for Prime is a dissapointment.

This is the dumbest thing I've ever heard. Are you saying you havent watched any of the Batman or Superman movies because they were based on "kiddie komics"? You cant believe people watched these shows? What the hell did YOU watch when you were 5? Debbie Does Dallas? Deep Inside Sky Lopez?

Is it an obsessive compulsive disorder to go to a theater and watch a movie? Sure beats riding on a bus to high school everyday, dont it Kobe24? I'd sure as hell rather watch robots beat the sh!t outta each other than watch Pokemon.
