While we await the imminent arrival of a new trailer, TFW2005 member OCProwl brings us news of Power Charge Bumblebee gracing shelves for $49.99 at a Costa Mesa, CA Target store. Time to head to your local Target to see if you too can score this Bee!
We are only few hours away from the new Transformers: Bumblebee trailer. Yes; as we were officially informed, the release time of the new trailer has been revised to 3:00AM Eastern Time from the original 8:00AM.
As we wait for the new trailer to drop, we decided to look into the hot topic regarding the new design aesthetic of the movie. Specifically the Cybertron prologue sequence which showcases heavy G1 influence.
What better person to explain that than the maestro himself. We move back to the past to our coverage of the SDCC 2018 Bumblebee Movie Panel to expand upon a statement made by director Travis Knight.
“We didn’t start on this film with a blank canvas. You know, there are 10 years of a filmic designs that we’ve seen on the screen, but because we set this film 20 years prior to the first Transformers film, it gave us some license, some liberty to play around with the design aesthetic. For me, I wanted to try to evoke the feeling that first wave of Transformers designs made me feel and so that was leaning into the aesthetic, the silhouettes, the shape language, the plating, the color of that first generation of design. There is something that to this day are still so beautiful and I think are hard to top. I think the film is not slavishly following that mold, but it is bringing that aesthetic and weaving it into a more modern point of view so it’s something entirely new, but hopefully it has that feeling of that first wave of Transformers.”
The director seems to be blending both world together for a good combination. His intention is to allow the audience to embrace G1 and Bayverse for a unique experience. The positive buzz on social media after the clips seems to indicate just that. Don’t forget to tune into TFW2005 for the full trailer.

Another clip from the upcoming Transformers: Bumblebee trailer has dropped few moments ago, and this time we are treated with Blitzwing bullying our story’s main protagonist.
Blitzwing has undergone some changes since we last saw him (comparison pic can be found below).
Also, at the end of the clip is a Police Cruiser being taken down by Bumblebee. The vague similarity of the Cruiser with Energon Igniters Barricade got the fans speculating whether this is Bee’s long term rival.
You can check out the new clip below. Don’t forget to tune into TFW2005 on Monday, 24th September for the full trailer.

Toys R Us Singapore is running a campaign where you can obtain an Exclusive Studio Series Battle Damaged Bumblebee.
While some may first think this could be another “rusty deco” Studio Series Camaro Bumblebee like the limited edition Bumblebee from Hasbro China, or the upcoming Studio Series SS-27 Clunker Bumblebee, this is not the case.
The Singapore Bumblebee releases are individually hand painted and then packaged. If you live in Singapore, you can receive one toy by purchasing 100 Singapore Dollars (or $73 approximately) in Power Of The Primes and Studio Series products.
