Wow. There was almost nothing recognizable there. :(

Well, I spotted Optimus Prime ... beyond that, I'm not enough of a Transformers geek to notice. I do remember watching the show once upon a time ... I just don't remember anything from it.

*fanboy squeee*

Now that that is over with, I would like to express my concerns that this movie will try so hard to be "edgy" that it comes off as cheezy.

That being said, I'm still gonna watch it on the big screen!

it's a live action/CG version of an already cheesy 80's cartoon show... how could it NOT be cheesy? :)

It's not just you. I'm a big Transformers geek, and I still had trouble identifying the characters. It's like someone made a list of the characters' identifying features and avoided them whenever possible.

That was the only thing I recognized in there. :( I grew up on Transformers, so I'm kinda attached to the whole thing. Besides Star Wars, TF was the major cartoon-with-toys thing I was heavily into at a young age. So, I'm a bit sad that I see little recognizable in that trailer.

I think the yellow thing might be Bumblebee. He'd just better goddamn well be a VW Beetle. ;)

Volkswagen said hell no when approached about licensing the car. Sorry!

I think VW also added a "please don't ask again" the last time Hasbro approached them.

You won't be recognizing much. I didn't feel like downloading the stupid full-screen software, but I can say this much...

Current confirmed list of robot characters (don't read if you don't wanna know):
Optimus Prime (blue/red semi-truck, visible in trailer)
Ironhide (black oversize diesel pickup)
Ratchet (yellow Hummer ambulance)
Jazz (white Pontiac Solstice)
Bumblebee (old-model yellow Camaro, visible in trailer)

Megatron (spaceship...thing)
Starscream (fighter plane, I think visible in trailer)
Blackout (military helicopter, visible in trailer)
Barricade (police car, I THINK he's the one in the swimming pool in the trailer)
Frenzy (boombox)
Bonecrusher (armored 8-wheeled military truck, I forget what it's called)
Brawl (tank)
Scorponok (scorpion drone, visible chasing soldiers in the desert)
Yes, the Autobots are outnumbered and outsized.

Those are the ONLY ones in the movie.

I think more like that yeah. All that's been leaked is what *seems* to be the toy.
