Getting pretty excited, but I've got conflicted feelings about the retro designs in the Cybertron sequence. On one hand, they're gorgeous, and I'd love an entire prequel movie set on Cybertron (I feel like we were supposed to be getting one of those at one point...), but on the other, they conflict with the style aesthetic of the other designs seen in the movie, let alone the other movies. It's quick, but Shatter and Blitzwing are in the same frame as Shockwave. Blitzwing doesn't look that odd, but I question if Shatter and Dropkick are going to look weird standing next to G1 Shockwave and Soundwave. Shatter especially screams movie design, and while she's mainly out of frame when she is on screen in that same shot as Shockwave, come full film release, I think the Cybertron sequence could be very jarring, especially if we get a Movie 1 Megatron cameo of him shooting off after the All Spark or something. Cybertron also looks nothing like it did in DOTM or TLK.
I'm excited, but at the same time, how completely all over the place the movie canon is infuriates me. This is obviously a prequel to 2007, since we see Hoover Dam in the trailer and Sector 7 is running around, but we also see Shockwave in his now G1 inspired Cybertronian form, however, we know what that looks like in the movieverse because DOTM happened. So, what, Shockwave has two different designs where he changes his eye color and gunhand?
It's so annoying. At this point, I'd rather Bumblebee be a straight up reboot so we can ditch the baggage of the messy movie timeline. I've tried to make sense of it in the past, but conflicting character designs are the final nail in the coffin for me.
