Transformers trailer
Fairly long trailer but they're still keeping the Transformers themselves mostly under wraps.  I assume they've got 6 months' worth of CGI to crack on with before the release...

Never been a Transformers fan, but was let down because we weren't shown any of the personalities of the bots.

Cool - can't wait for this one - I wonder if they will release a decent DVD for this one - Bay's last one got a real cr*ppy release(although the movie was a let down)

I hope the release a good DVD also.

I have high expectations in this movie, even if a lot of people don't.

It looks more like Bionicle the movie. Oh dear. Why isnt Spielberg directing?? Ever since Michael Bay has been associated with this project my expectations have dropped. I was hoping for a 80's retro feel, but I do like the dark approach. However the Transformers themselves look terrible, they look too man made and not from an alien plant. And where is the classic transforming noise??

Was hoping to hear Prime's voice in the trailer but I'm guessing they're going to keep you waiting for that. Not expecting much, least that way I won't be dissapointed.

Same here. I just REALLY hope they don't stoop to him saying "It's Prime Time!".

"Megatron must be stopped. No matter the cost"
**Cue "The Touch"**

Why in the name of Speilburg can they not look more like their Gen 1 versions?  I hate the versions they are using with a passion, and Megatron looks like Ivan Ooze from the end of Power Rangers" The Movie.  The fans waited 20 years for this and Mr. Bay's choices for everything is not looking good.  The version of Prime's truck is wrong, Megatron is an alien jet plane, Soundwave is MIA, ... I am ranting here.

Even thoough they (due to fan-boy outcry) got the original voice of prime back,I am sure they will digitize it enough to screw it up, too.

I am going to go watch my DVDs now.

As much as I'd love to see the Transformers we grew up with like yourself, and for nostalgia purposes, sadly those models no longer fit and I think they'd take away form the movie.
They updated the characters and it's something we have to live with.  You know as well as I do that Hollywood NEVER keeps things as they should be, or how we remember.  LOL

From what I hear, Soundwave IS in the movie...again, not in the form you'd remember though.  We don't get a good enough look at Starscream in the trailer, so I'll reserve judgement until I get a better look.  But from what I've seen from the trailer so far...I'll be in the theater on the 4th!

Nope, I refuse to accept that a decent film maker who cared enough could not have made a Gen 1 Transformers flick better than I see Mr. Bay molding at this point.  If you look at a car, and imagine it standing up and popping out legs, it would not be a 50'+ robot.  Would it be to hard to at least try to use the correct vehicles?  How hard it it to choose a 'flat-fronted' truck for Prime?  Megatron has been reduced to a big shiney alien plane?  Soundwave is back?  Wow, what is he now? Did they cave to fan pressure to include him or did they not have a finished script when they started filming?
The saying that it needs to be traslated into a new forum because it is not on the big screen is an excuse, not a reason.  I dont need it to be identical to the old cartoon (I have my DVDs for that), but at least if you are going to claim to be making it in that version, then actually do it then.  Hollywood never gets it right, I agree.  Sometimes it makes sense the changes, but I dont see it happening here.  I will be waiting on some reviews before I go see it.

The lenticular one? I didn't get it either (from DVDPacific), so I think it must have been a limited thing. I've also have the Reconstructed release and the original region one Kid Rhino disc. I'm surprised you're into Transformers given your age (and girly bits) though. I've only ever met one lass who would watch the movie without complaining!

Erm... I have an old dvd copy of Transformers the Movie and one of the extras has the title theme with someone voice repeating "S**t" over and over over the top of it... Was this on all of them or is my copy just weird?

I'm disappointed about Megatron from that pic BUT I do like what they've done with Bumblebee.
