As is the case with almost every pop culture movie, the first look at new designs and characters is through the merchandise and Transformers 7 Rise of the Beasts (ROTB) is no different. Thanks to some slipper boots and pajamas, we have our first look at the Bumblebee design from ROTB. Of course we don’t know how different it will look in the final film but this is the design Hasbro gave companies that licensed their brand for film related products. The look is very much a mix of what we saw in the Bumblebee film mixed with elements from the first Michael Bay film, going hand in hand with the statements of the director that his movie is a bridge between the different films, at least stylistically. Bad news for fans hoping to be done with Bayverse designs, but that was never going to be the case, as we saw that from the earlier product reviews. Of course, inspiration from Bay’s live action films does not mean that the story or approach would be the same, since this is a different director and this film takes place in a different era.

We have another product shown featuring many faction symbols. It is important to note that the Predacon symbol is not there, which could hint at how little that faction is involved with the film. Remember, there have been no confirmation of any Predacon character being in the film so far. The listings for the various apparel come from BIG W.

If the orange faction symbol is not “predacon” (it’s clearly not), what faction will it represent? :-?

One would assume “Terrorcon”.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…I’m still a bit bummed Bee’s gonna keep the same face. I still don’t think it’s the worst of all the Bayverse designs, I just like a lot of the other interpretations much more. Especially since I was hoping we’d get something more G1-y (not saying everything must be Geewun), because I think going for a hybridisation of the cartoon eyes and helmet with the toy’s faceplate would more or less give us the same Bayverse Bumblebee (BBB) face but more in-line with what the BB movie gave us for the other characters. (At least, in my opinion.)

But I know this is THE iconic Bumblebee noggin so I am not even remotely surprised we’re still getting it. :-P

But why? Why “Terrorcon” and and not “Predacon” ? :???:

He looks good! I like that they kept some of the Bumblebee movie parts, like his arms and feet.

I wonder if he will have the car doors on his back or if it will be like before, where the merchandise was based on the concept art.

Day 891 of waiting for Transformers Armada Masterpiece news.

I like that they’re incorporating more yellow into Bumblebee’s face and filled it in a bit. Always thought all the gray metal and open spaces was a little too “cold” and skeletal for such cheerful bot.

Because they’re not Predacons?

Nightbird, Battletrap and Scourge.

Though I seem to remember it being said that they have beast modes as well, or at least Nightbird does? :-?

Wait… They are the Terrorcons.
It’s the name of a combiner team.

So….. :-?

Wouldn’t get your hopes up :lol: the terrorcons also referred to the drones from Energon and I think the zombies from TF Prime

No, the Terrorcons are scourge, Nightbird, and whatever the other’s names were.

ZeroWolf was just refering to the previous uses of the Terrorcon name.

Exactly this ^

Just because the G1 Terrorcons combined, doesn’t mean the Rise of the Beasts ones will basically, as the Terrorcons name has been used before.

Also considering “Devastator”. Personally, I’m not really like keen on the idea of seeing another Live Action Gestalt.

That BB looks like TF1 Bee had a baby with VW Bee. Smoother lines than the first Bay movie from what I can see.
