“Stunning work” “top notch on the drawing board”. Those statements might be true if you have low standards and no imagination.  Whatever else the bayverse designs are, they were completely new and like nothing ever seen before. Great  thought and effort was put into them,  These designs are derivitive and bland.  They took the simple G1 cartoon aesthetic and tweaked it a bit.  And poorly at that.  Just like the IDW artists, there is absolutely no originality coming from these designers.  Or from whomever was leading them by the nose.

I can almost forgive it due to it obviously being hurried, 11th hour work.  And done to appease tasteless “fans” who just want G1 regurgitated endlessly.  Unfortunately, unlike Bay, who doesn’t understand Transformers , but at least has resolve and a spine, Travis Knight is a coward who whores himself to internet whiners and trolls. 

The saddest part is that ILM used to be the gold standard.  Ever since Lucas sold them, the quality of their work keeps getting worse and worse.  They are chasing all the other cgi startups right to the bottom.

But at least you’re getting your crappy 21st century g1 transformers on the big screen.

Uh, no? They were heavily tweaked. There was plenty of originality coming from these guys, as they gave us amazing updated looks to classic G1 characters like Starscrean and Optimus Prime. A ton of work was obviously put into these designs. Travis Knight is In 0 way a coward for bringing back something we all know and love and refining. He tried to strike a perfect balance between the Bayverse designs (which are awesome) and the classic designs. His team made one of, if not the best Optimus Prime design I've ever seen. Saying these people are uncreative and that Travis knight is a coward who only listens to internet whiners and trolls, while it may be an opinion, is EXTREMELY childish, because if anything he saved these kinds of movies from becoming extinct.

Just stating that the designers can, and do come up with ideas we can at least relate to.  And even still, we can't take any of the Bumblebee movie scenes as definitive. After all, they were added as an after thought. 

But hey, the great thing about the Transformers is there is something for everyone.  Thankfully, we can't collect them all so its great to be able to choose.

I think the Bumblebee movie designs we got looked great. reading how they used the skeleton of Bumblebee and Optimus, I'm willing to bet these characters will look vastly different in the future.
