New Bumblebee US and International Trailers With New Footage, More Cybertron (Updated)

Here is the latest trailer for Bumblebee that shows off new footage including hints at more action from Cybertron (with appearance of Shockwave) that does include the footage from the teasers released yesterday. After that is a very short international TV spot that teases the origin of 'Bee VW alt mode. Thanks to Feris O. for the link. While the movie is clearly set in the Bay-verse of Transformers movies, it is also clear that Generation One is the key source for the design decisions such as the seekers transforming into triangle shaped jets which is directly from the very first episode of the cartoon series back in 1984. What do you think of the new footage?

Update Turns out the brief TV spot is from the international trailer (3rd vid below) for Bumblebee that includes even more new footage. Here are links to screencaps - US: TFW2005, TFormers | International: TFW2005

New Bumblebee Movie Teasers Show G1 Soundwave and Optimus Prime

The Paramount Picture Taiwan branch is teasing the release of a new Bumblebee trailer at some point today. To back that up they have released two very short teasers. Below is a video that combines those two teasers, adds the recent BB trailer and a featurette to help you get caught up on what little footage we have from the movie. The most interesting bit is you get a brief look at Optimus Prime, Soundwave, and Ravage all of whose designs seem to be a mix of Generation 1 and the Transformers: War for Cybertron video game. Thanks to Feris O. for the link. So what do you think of their new looks?

Bumblebee Toy Movie Presentation, Commercial

The left image is from a "Bumblebee Movie toys Presentation Event" held in Monterrey, Mexico. It gave fans in the area a chance to look at the upcoming toy line with 'Bee's VW Beetle alt mode. Doubt its the "hero" version used in the film. Any case if interested in all the pics from the event, head over to TFW2005. On a related note, below is a compilation video from Brasil of various Transformers toy commercials featuring Bumblebee. The first 30 seconds is the main part to focus on since it features the upcoming movie version of Bumblebee while the rest of the video covers toys from the movies, Transformers: Robots in Disguise, and the video game War for Cybertron. Thanks to Feris O. for the link.
