Movie coming out in July… but just in case you want to see more pics and links to even more pics, I posted this link for you here above. What is this about Optimius Primes lips you say? since the movie is based off of Transformers Generation 1, people think that a main character like Prime should be more like what he was on tv as a cartoon. He had a face plate over his mouth.
I do want it to be as close to the original as possible, but lets face it, they have to deal with real life issues. For example, getting permission from auto makers to use their car or truck for the movie. I think the real reason why BumbleBee is a Camaro is because VW doesn’t want its car associated with the show (unless well… all the cars and trucks are VW)
I am sure other automakers had demands if their vehicel make was used.
And Megatron??? originally he was a gun. Even HASBRO doesn’t remake him as a gun when they re-released Gen 1 toys. to this day the Megatron original gun is a huge collectible. There is no way they are going to make a toy gun that actually looks like a gun. believe me when I say that the original release look exactly like a real gun. You could pistol whip someone wih the handle because it was so hard… literally.
So some changes are to be expected. When the movie becomes a mega hit, then car makers wil do whatever the movie makers want. I am sure Prime and megatron will come back as what they were in this movie, but makybe Bumblebee, ratchet and a few others will be a little different.
