Ah okay.

I've actually noticed this too, I don't mind some Autobots like Crosshairs being violent and mean if that's his personality, but I do feel like it would be nice to have a couple kind-hearted Autobots in the mix to balance things out. All of the Autobots from AoE act like jerks at some point in the movie.

Prime can be plenty dark and rage filled in the comics. These movies aren't just based on the shows, they have plenty of elements from the comics as well. Agree to disagree on them being well defined. I would throw Megatron in as well.

It was never as bad as Dark of the Moon, Age of Extinction, or The Last Knight.

Can't comment on TLK, but DOTM and AOE gave him good reasons to be mad. I have read many comics and Prime gets rate filled and vengeful there also.

“I know we’re doing a spinoff first in the Bumblebee movie, and that is a very distinctive departure from what you’ve been seeing so far… The objective of that movie is to develop more time with less robots in a way, and to go back to 1985 and go back to sort of the original heritage if you would of the Transformers. G1.”
So it definitely sounds like this movie is doing a G1 homage, which I'm cool with; G1 is where it all started and is probably the most beloved version of Transformers. I've wanted for years that the movies be more like G1 since that's the original incarnation, and although I still want that, I have found more appreciation for new interpretations of Transformers. It's nice that they're giving something to the longtime fanbase.

I actually hope there aren't too many in-your-face references, I don't need to hear "The Touch" playing over the radio or any quotes from the '86 movie, that's all been done to death in this franchise. I would love to see Bee as a VW and some kind of reference to Soundwave's original tape-deck; other than that I hope it's mostly general retro 80s nostalgia, a lot of rock songs and whatnot.

Actually looking forward to the spin off. The comparison to the Iron Giant was interesting.

I'm looking forward to it too, it's been a while, but I remember enjoying the Iron Giant. I like small scale adventure stories about an everyday person who meets an alien or whatnot and befriends them, in some ways more so than typical large-scale action movies that end in city-destroying CGI battles.

Unfortunately TF5 sounds like another mess, so I'm hoping with all the hopes I have that Bay doesn't have too much say in this movie.

Edit: Looks like they're hinting that we might see Bee in his classic VW mode in this movie: http://comicbook.com/movies/2017/06/...n-bug-g1-body/

Please be true!

The robots aren't characters though. Will the robots be characters this time? And who would be the villains?

I would think (or at least hope, lol) that a movie that's being marketed as a Bumblebee spinoff would give Bumblebee halfway decent characterization. I would argue he's one of the better developed ones already, at least he has a few distinguishing character traits.

I'm still curious about what they'll do for villains. I'm probably in the minority, but I'm actually kind of hoping this movie will go very small scale and be more of an adventure, maybe it will focus on the friendship between Bee and his human friend. It technically doesn't even need a villain to be a good story, although I wouldn't mind a villain to show up here and there to add some tension. Maybe just a single villain like Barricade, or some new car-based Decepticon who can die in the end. I'm just really hoping that this one doesn't end in an overblown CGI/explosion-filled destruction fest like most blockbusters do these days.
