New Trailer!

So, as you can see, the new trailer for the Bumblebee movie was just released. All right, let’s do a little unpacking here:

The good: Holy. Slag! The feels. I am having all of them. No, seriously. Even in these few brief glimpses, I’m starting to seriously enjoy the relationship Bumblebee and Charlie have. There is a sweetness there that makes my heart melt. This is the sort of thing I had wanted since I was nine years old–no joke!–so I am loving every second of this. Once the credits roll, I have all ideas that I’ll be hunched over in my seat, sobbing, which is a good thing.

The bad: Seriously, G1 forms on freaking Cybertron?! How about no. Those forms–tape deck, tractor trailer, VW Beetle–were chosen on Earth. And for a very good reason; the Cybertronians in question chose those forms to hide themselves on planet Earth, which is an alien planet. I get that Travis Knight is trying to appeal to the G1 base, but that’s not the way to do it because it doesn’t make a lot of sense.

The ugly: Sector 7 is back and it looks like I’ll be hating them again. Lovely. Unless Cena’s character pulls his head out of his ass, I’m going to absolutely hate him, like Simmons.

All in all, this looks like it’s going to be great. The wait for December seems far too long and way too slow. But if this trailer is any indication, it’s going to be one hell of a Christmas! I can hardly wait!

About Silverwynde

I'm a Transformers fan, Pokémon player, Brewers fan and all-out general nerd. I rescue abandoned Golett, collect as many Bumblebee decoys and figures as I can find and I've attended every BotCon since 1999. I'm also happily married to a fellow Transfan named Prime and we were both owned by a very intelligent half-Siamese cat, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on June 16, 2018. We still miss him. But we're now the acting staff of a Maine Coon kitty named Lulu, who pretty much rules the house. Not that we're complaining about that.
