We can confirm that the film will open on Cybertron and will be briefly visited later again. Fans of Transformer’s “Generation 1” will be pleased for the film will showcase many iconic autobots and decepticons- all which sport designs identical to their 1980s cartoon counterparts.
Yes, Bumblebee will represent G1 very well with the film being set in 1986. The transformers on Cybertron will not only look the way they did in the 80s but will also be seen transforming into stylish cybertronian vehicles.
So, what iconic transformers can you expect to see in ‘Bumblebee’? Fans will have a fun time scanning the battlefields on Cybertron for many instantly recognizable characters. Three that stand out in the film are Soundwave, Shockwave, and Cliffjumper. Note that these are only brief cameos and most of them are not speaking roles. Blitzwing, Dropkick, and Shatter are the only decepticon key players in the film. Optimus Prime (once again voiced by Peter Cullen) has a role larger than a brief cameo, but do not expect to see him engage in any action on earth. One should expect his classic 80s design to look just as good as they imagined it to be.
