Well, I'm still prolly gonna go see it, but I'm abit afraid I'm not going to fully enjoy it as I was hoping.

Optimus will be pretty easy to recognise though, I'm happy about that.
Jazz wasn't too hard to recognise either. Pretty slick, as Jazz is.

Next I'd say possibly, maaaybe, Bumblebee, but I'm not sure.

As for the others, if there wasn't a nametag on them, I'd never guess it in a million years.

Interesting that at the end of that featurette they use the original transformation sound twice. I wonder if that is in the film? My impression is that it wasn't...

Michael Bay: "I only want to do this movie if I can make it dead real...believable. Not cartoony in any way."

Have you even seen your own movies, Mike?

This movie will be awesome. I will make a broad range of comments on what I've read through the thread.

1. Artistic style has changed dramatically since when it aired. The Transformers actually produce arms and legs out of the vehicles this time, meaning their designs in some cases (and looks) had to be modified in order to make them believable. For instance, Starscream would look dumb now as a red and blue F-15 now. A grey F-22 is more believable, but I do agree that they shouldn't have made him so bulky, but it lends to the believability that an aircraft's fuselage is that believable. It was probably make him stocky or make him tall. I'll take stocky over Godzilla height.

2. Hugo Weaving I like because he's going to be much more sinister where the old Megatron guy sounds like a raspy old man with a cane who is remotely dangerous.

3. The audience is much bigger, and needs more believability. Anyone heard the old fighting sounds? You hear them now and you shake your head.

I'm really excited. I want to see Optimus Prime and Mega-dump go at it and Prime rip his head off and use it as a volleyball.

Didn't showed much...
I saw a part of StarScream there though. Sound was very bad, anyone know of another one with a better sound?

Don't worry about the TV spot. Check this out:

http://movies.yahoo.com/feature/transformers.html

The Final Theatrical Trailer (in no less than 3 high def resolutions).

WARNING: They show A LOT. If you don't want any more visual spoilers before July 4th DO NOT download the trailer, see Shrek 3, Spider Man 3, or Pirates 3.

Is it just me, or does Jazz sound like a squeaker toy when he is getting thrown around by Starscream?

I hear it too. poor dude's getting the life squeaked out of him as he's thrown around by Megatron, who's twice his size.

but it's also heard at around 2:15 when Megatron transforms again, so it could be coming from him.

I'm hoping that Shia LaBeouf isn't the Annoying ****head I believe him to be, and that Starscream will be the hardcore slimeball that I remember him being.

he's the one that looks like a bunch of jagged metal edges, kinda looks like Doomsday.he stomps on Jazz near the top of a building, also flings a whip-like weapon towards Shia, and jumps down on the ground and transforms again.

Shia's not that bad of an actor. he's gotten quite a bit of range since his Disney days.

Two of your links have had the videos removed (last 2).

The trailers are awesome. Spielberg loves the movie. Saying he makes (pretty) good movies, I think it's gonna be great.

BTW, love that part of the trailer where it says, "some will come to protect us" and you just see Optimus Prime pull up, and anyone who knows anything about American pop-culture knows Optimus is comin'. I just can't wait to see Optimus absolutely maul Mega-dump.

Saw it tonight. Go see it. Great movie. Starts a little slow, but it picks up and when it does it is amazing. Definitely a sequel coming. Throws in a lot of comedy as well as action and some seriousness.

BTW, the transformers transforming is absolutely jaw-dropping awesome. They all look good too.

Already purchased my tickets for myself and my employees. We are going Sunday, July 8 at 7 pm., so that even those who work get a chance to go.
