Okay, so they’re not using a VW bug for Bumblebee. It actually follows the original story, that if it took place in present day, the ship would send out a sentry to get current ideas for things for the Transformers to turn into.
Now, I also concede that it’s possible for them to screw other things up, but if Bumblebee’s a Camaro instead of a bug, Optimus Prime is a fire truck instead of an 18-wheeler, and Starscream is an F-22 Raptor instead of an F-15 Eagle, well, I’m okay with that. I mean, would it really bother anyone that Hound would now be a Hummer instead of an old Army Jeep? All I know is Michael Bay at the helm with Spielberg helping along the way sounds pretty good, and I’m going to reserve judgment.
