Genuinely surprised at the Bernie Mac voiceover and emphasis on it being The Beginning, I'd assumed it'd be carefully promoted and made so if it was an unexpected hit it and sequels could fit into the planned reboot. Instead it looks like TF6 hasn't been outright cancelled, they're waiting to see how this does before making a decision.

Also surprised there's no hint of when it's set, was expecting them to milk the Stranger Things vibe (they could have played Don't Stop Bee-leaving at least).

Looks fun and the much needed scaling back the series needed.

I watched this trailer twice last night and had a genuine tear in my eye. I was a big fan of all five Bay films, even at their dumbest I enjoyed the action and spectacle, and I stand by my assertions that there is a lot more heart and thought to those films than people give them credit for.

That said, I am very fond of the idea of a smaller, sweeter little story akin to the first film. Bee looks like a really cute cross between his classic cartoon design and the modern look, the relationship with the human looks sweet and I'm all for it.

Cor, you know what? I bloody love transformers.

Yeah, it seems to be a smaller scale version of the 2007 movie. Teenager meets transforming car, then larger conflict with decepticons and an antagonistic human group. It works.

*Beast Wars is in the future, in the past.
**Hearts of Steel was a period piece, come to think of it.

The main figure for the film isn't bad at all, surprised the yellow works. Replace the head (or even just paint the alt head) and it's not a terrible update on the original either.

Yeah, me too. I've watched the two new trailers a few times, and I'm starting to get hyped. Whole lot of goodness in there, especially with the designs on Cybertron.

Here's apparently trailer #2:

Trailer #2

At the same time, I really don't want to be let down. Again.

I'm surprised they've gone for such '80s designs....they look a bit like they've stumbled in from something else. Other than that, looks like it'll be a pretty decent film.

Tentatively impressed. The smaller scale should make for a better film (although it could be small but still dumb like the awful Turtles movie) and I think the designs are much improved while not throwing away the overall style of the movies. Much as I wasnt keen on the movies they are the mainstream version of the TF for the last 10 years so a complete overhaul would have been a mistake IMO.

Yep, this could work. TBH scaling things back was something that should have been done for AOE rather than this need to get bigger and sillier every film, resulting in the genuine turd of TLK. This goes for cheap shots galore with its' High Noon character models and Stranger Things 180g Vinyl Vaporwave view of the eighties but **** it, I'm in.
