    Looks interesting.

    Things I noticed

    1. The plane Transformer (almost certainly Starscream) looks amazing. PLZ immediately provide a Studio Series quality toy of that. Is he a Harrier?
    2. I like that Bee is smaller in this than in the Bay films. I always felt he was slightly too large in those.
    3. Bee must change alt modes during the film - the kibble on him in the last scene is entirely different to the VW kibble seen beforehand.
    4. Designs are nice - I quite liked the first trilogy Bay designs for being quite alien. These are more familiar but from what I've seen probably as nice. I like for example that you can see the wings flip around with the rear boosters really clearly to sit on Starscream's (?) back, instead of everything just sort of morphing in a mass of moving parts like in the last 2 Bay films.
    I'm really just here for the free food and open bar.

    That trailer actually looks pretty good. It feels like there’s more to the movie than just Baysplosions. I’m hoping this new Director brings something fresh.

    And I love that shot of Starscream (which looks like a F4 Phantom to me)

    I like the trailer, the voice over by "Bobby Bolivia' (RIP Bernie Mac) gave me chills.
    I'm not a fan of Bumblebee not talking but I can see why they've kept it if this is in fact the same universe as all the other live action films. I get a feeling it might be handled better this time though.

    My favourite thing is that Bumblbees robot mode isn't overly gappy. he looks like he has a shell/skin/surface to his structure, something that clearly defines his profile but also he's not full of gaps making it easy for an enemy to attack his weaker internals.

    I'll be interested to see what Rating it has.

    Now all I have to do is avoid any further trailers till it comes out in December.

    His chest looks like a jeep from M.A.S.H. when he is next to the Hummer that has been destroyed.

    I’m quite chuffed with the trailer - I think it looks great, as does Bee himself

    Unless it’s MA15+ or something (which I’m sure it won’t be) I’m gonna take my son to see it on his 6th birthday (unless it come out late - what’s the release date again)?

    Edit: Aw crap, it comes out two days AFTER his birthday

    Hmmmm, this doesn't look like a reboot to me. I smell a prequel, and we all know how bad those are. **Cough**Episode I**Cough**

    I like the more G1 look with the panels being sizeable and covering most of his body giving the G1 coloured robot look rather than silver with flashes of colour.

    Also like the little paddle/antennas on his head that were part of his reactions. The bee fighting mask looked great. Especially the eyes.

    Also loved the eyes were part of the car underneath. Almost like a toy where they don't need to fully cover the underneath so part of the head is visible.

    That was always the case. From when the flick was first announced this movie has always been planned as a prequel. A reboot of the movies wasn’t announced until way after production was underway. This is the last of the flicks in this particular ‘movieverse,

    I heard this is the last TF bay movie. This is the end till someone else reboot.

    That plane is a Phantom A4, looks almost like ramjet.
