    BB was the best autobot imo. can't wait to see more of it in the 2nd one.

    Ironhide came out of the pool.

    Jazz was okay. Didnt show him a whole lot in the movie, so lost a lil bit of a connection there. And Megatron is still in his cybertronian form. So would his armor be stronger? I would think so. But that's my opinion.

    U also have to take in consideration that Optimus didnt do that much to Megs in the movie in their fight. So that's another thought that Megs armor was more powerful.

    cant wait for the dvd tuesday.

    I think he did. He could change from his hands to guns at any point.

    When watching the movie again...watch closely the scene where he first reveals himself to Sam and Mikaela after fighting Barricade. He has a gun in his arm there that he changes.

    Another scene is when he's released from Sector 7, right as he got off the rail car. (Great CGI scene)

    Another is when Mikaela is towing the Bee after he lost his legs. "You shoot, I'll drive." That scene.

    In other words, the BEE IS AWESOME!!

    Ya know, I wish the book was more like the movie. It explains the entire fight between the Bee and Barricade...which would have looked AWESOME on screen.

    But whatever, maybe there will be a director's cut sometime in the future. I'd triple-dip. No problem whatsoever.

    As much as I love G1 and if it weren't for G1, the movie wouldn't be here, but I like the movie Bumblebee better.

    Phew....glad I'm not the only one!

    I'm also glad he wasn't a VW Bug. I like him as a Camaro better. :word:

    I'm just soo very thankful to Michael Bay for not making the Bee a VW Bug.

    That would have been bad coming on the heels of the Herbie movie with Lindsay Lohan.:ninja:

    I have to admit that Mark Ryan's voice has grown on me somewhat. More recently, I've begun to feel that it was okay. However, I still think a more youthful sounding voice would've fit Bumblebee better.

    According to his commentary, Bay originally wanted Michael J. Fox to do the voice. Even if it would have been only for two lines, I think that would've been better.

    Yipes...REALLY!?!? :wow:

    I don't think it would have had the same effect.

    "Permission to speak sir."

    "Go ahead, Marty McFly."

    That probably would have been great with MJF doing the voice, he would have been perfect for a younger sounding BB, but i still think the voice in the movie was fine.

    In some of subsequent viewings, I think Mark Ryan's voice has grown on me somewhat. But I still think a more youthful sounding voice would've fit the character better.

    Not seeing the cartoon in a long time I had forgot just how small some of the Transformers used to be but that was part of their appeal, small robots with big hearts who could still battle it out with the big guys. I'm not against how Bumblebee looked in the live action movie but I still would have loved to have seen concept drawings of how he would have looked had they kept him as a VW bug.

    I wonder if they would have gone with him as a classic Bug or a newer Bug.

    Interesting.

    When Optimus Prime told Bumblebee to "Stop Lubricating The Man" that was hysterical.:D What was that thing that Bumblebee shot out of himself before he started pissing on Simmons, an oil filter? Shouldn't Bumblebee have been pissing oil instead of water?

    It was oil. If you look carefully, Simmons has brown slimy stuff on his face as Mikaela and Sam are handcuffing him.
