Short clip of TF: Prime footage

Posted by:

YouTube user Soundwave919 has uploaded a brief clip of Transformers: Prime footage from a commercial for it on the Hub (which launched today). The clip is low quality and only a few seconds long, but we get a look at Optimus, Ratchet, Bulkhead, Arcee, and Bumblebee walking in the woods somewhere, as well as a close up of Optimus speaking his iconic "Roll out!" line.

However, Optimus's mouth (yes, he's got a mouth again), seems to be lacking in lip detail and looks kinda... odd. Hopefully we can chalk this up to the low quality of the video and hope the real thing looks better.

Of note is the height of each Autobot. Optimus is the tallest, followed by Ratchet ,then Bulkhead, then Bumblebee (though, his door wings reach up to Bulkhead's height), and finally Arcee as the smallest.

ok ...
at the end of exidus the bots left on the ark but the main crew were ratchet, ironhide, bb, prime and swipe. where is swipe? where did bulkhead come from and why have we not seen sun streeker in years in any media?

appart from that, exept for prime with a mouth that is strange, pritty cool looking

Well, who were the Ark crew at the end of WFC? Maybe it'll fit better with that.

Besides, we knew long ago that the core cast was gonna be Optimus, BB, Bulky, Ratchet, Arcee, and CJ (whose missing from this clip).

true we did. i can't remember the crew of the ark in wfc.
pritty sure sideswipe, prime, bb, ratchet but i'll have to go back and play again for the lols of it or just watch cutseens on youtube.

it just seems strange to me that bulkhead seems to have just appeared from thin air with no explaination ... but perhaps we will get an explaination in the show.
as for cliffjumper i am pritty sure he was meant to have remained on cybertron with magnus but again perhaps we will be shown in the series.
arcee on the other hand was the fem who sent the allspark from cybertron in the short bumblebee at tigerpacks but after that i don't think she was seen again. who knows.
even though the continuity seems to have brantched off before it was properly started, i look forward to this series

The show doesn't take place immediately after WFC/Exodus, but rather at some point long after they had already been on Earth for a while. We were told at SDCC that the events directly prior to this show are "Movie-esque", but are not the movies themselves.

I don't know but I'm not too keen on the transformers in this series looking like their movie counterparts. Plus I don't like prime's mouth. He's gotta have a face plate. He's not Optimus Primal! plus Jazz or Wheeljack would have been totally rad to have included in this lineup of autobots.

He does have a mouthplate. He's just not wearing it in this scene. and it's only Optimus, BB, and Megs that really look like their Movie counterparts. Everyone else looks more original (save for Bulkhead, who looks like TFA Bulkhead).

i am liking cliffjumper and arcee's looks and bulkhead is interesting. i am betting that wen we finally get the figures of these like next october they will be sweet.

now as for the dark side of the moon books on amazon. it could be possibly be histories in to the prime cartoon. it would make sence to include back fiction but hmm

You know, Hub is showing the G1 series during the week at 10PM. So you can check there. And I also think Sideswipe was in the ark because in the G1 series he appeared alot.

@lioconvoy: Nah, Dark of the Moon is TF3. Further information seems to confirm it. The TF:Prime books are called "TF:Prime".

@TFfan1: So? What's the G1 cartoon have to do with anything about this? It isn't related to this.

Sabrblade, you need to read TF: Exodus! Seriously, it's the best TF fiction to be written, in a long, long time. Maybe ever. Absolutely brilliant!

I HAVE read it. I OWN it. I've given my thoughts on it here -
