I saw this when it was posted about at CMON. It looks so cool, I so hope they didn't screw it up.
So who's your favorite Transformer? Who are you hoping to see in there?
Mine's Optimus of course, I just wish they would have kept the rig design the same.
*crossing my fingers, hoping it's good*

OH YAY! Just read this a Wikipedia:
[Peter] Cullen will reprise his role of Optimus Prime in the 2007 Transformers movie. Fans of the Transformers universe have responded to this in a very positive way.
He has stated that of all the voices he has done, Optimus Prime is his favorite. In interviews, he has said that he had no idea of Optimus Prime's popularity until the character's death in the film, as the studio had never given him fan letters from children addressed to Prime.
I was just thinking that if they got Peter Cullen to do Prime's voice rather than Gary Chalk who did Primal's voice in the Beast Wars series, I could forgive any sins they made with the movie.
*EDIT* Sorry for the double post, thought I hit the edit button when I accidentally got the quick reply. oops...

Well, I'm looking forward to the movie despite the trailer.
What I liked about the trailer:
- the decepticons are trying to take earth from the humans as opposed to just fighting the autobots and just happening by chance to be on earth.
- the scene with the helecopter: "have the crew step out or you will be killed"...crew? what crew?
- that they kept the young guy character and aged him and made him more up to date.
- that Spielberg is behind it
Things I didn't like:
- the way Optomus' head formed. It looked more like it was drawn in place than like it was actually metal moving from one place to another.
- none of the bots looked like the old school bots - too much exposed tubing and stuff.
- that it looked almost plotless: just a string of action sequences. The older I get the more I demand a story.

I guess I missed out on the TRANSFORMER craze...so I never thought they were 'cool' as a kid. In fact, I always thought they were kind of cheesy, as toys go.
But, anyhow, I just watched that trailer and I hate to admit it, but it looked pretty damn spiffy....

I hated the transformer cartoons!
I will be going to see the movie based on that trailer though.

Transformers got a bit crazy.
The cartoon was crap (even though I was a loyal fan).
Example: Decepticons find something cool and nifty that will help them defeat the autobots. Autobots find out and drive across the desert to confront decepticons. Shooting commences, though despite highly advanced computer brains and technology, their accuracy suggests they were all programmed by nearsighted Empire Storm Troopers. Starscream gets his paint scratched and runs away. Decepticons panic and retreat. (plot of every episode)
The toys started out pretty cool. They just looked like toy cars and airplanes, but they could fold into more or less humanoid robots. Nifty idea.
They started getting crazy though, and became anything from dinosaurs, to insects, to - I think - an entire planet. And as they went they became less and less recognizably humanoid.
Still, the concept is a fantastic one, and in the right hands could really pay off.

with Michael Bay's name attached to a movie , your bound to have lot's of action/chase scenes

Oh I don't mind lots of action.
If the purpose of the movie is to raise your heartbeat that's fine.
I just want a story to string them together; otherwise it's just a bad Jackie Chan movie.
