Two new Decepticon cars have been revealed by Entertainment Weekly for the new Bumblebee movie, set to release this December and show off it’s goods next week at San Diego Comic Con. They sport a red and blue color scheme and are based on vintage rides. The cherry-red Plymouth Satellite is a female named Shatter and is voiced by Angela Bassett. The blue AMC Javelin is named Dropkick and will be voiced by Justin Theroux.
“When the cast is too big, and you have a finite amount of time, there’s only so much you can do to create an investment in them,” Travis Knight says. “This is a more personal, intimate, and character-driven story, so it felt right to keep the villain plot relatively simple and contained. If you keep things lean, you can add a lot of other stuff on top of it that makes it more enjoyable.”
Stay tuned for more info from SDCC next week!
For the record, Hamill wasn't de-aged in The Last Jedi, just shaved.
Okay gotta admit these two look really cool.
They’ Not. Shatter has Harrier wings on her .
This may already be covered somewhere in this thread, but now that we know Dropkick is a triple changer (even though the toy isn't), I'm looking at the Red one (her name isn't in front of me) and wondering if they're some kind of combiner as well. She sure looks like she has helicoptor rotors on her shoulder and up to this point they haven't done mass shifting on the level needed to have Dropkick be both a car and a much larger helicoptor. I wonder if the coptor is a combine mode for the two of them?
If that were to be the case, Hasbro really missed out on a fantastic toy (unless a leader type thing is yet coming as a surprise). Hope 3P takes up the slack (or that there is no slack to begin with).
Or maybe they're both triple changers.
Why do Dropkick's arms look so gimpy?
I’ve got some bad news for you buddy…
Any pics of the cars together?
They did it with Luke Skywalker in TLJ, Guardians 2 with Kurt Russell, and Arnold in terminator. So I guess anything's possible. Its an 80s flick with talking cars..it's gotta have a Hoff cameo..
Yeah…shouldn't be too difficult to digitally de-age him for a cameo, right?
no he is farther away from the camera so it makes him look shorter, shatter may be a bit tall than dropick but not by that much
Remember it's the 80s. Should find an airplane or copter that matches the altmode. I'm hoping they throw in a Blue Thunder helicopter Transformer reference, or Air Wolf..and have a car that looks eerily like Knight Rider. And a cameo by the Hoff!
Ah. I see
…and now I wanna see Prime Skype Bumble and awkwardly force all his orders into yes/no questions while poor Bumble is totally distraught and angry at Prime making cute angry radio noises…
Oh shit, that's the boxart from the GameCube Spongebob movie game! *grabs controller and runs to game collection*
Charlie's parents aren't home.
Prime doesn't get to Earth until 20 years later, so no, unless there's like a video call or something. Which would probably be awkward for Bee, what with the not able to speak thing.
I can't even hate. I like these designs a little better than the Bay aesthetic.
They look BEEFIER and more SINEWY. They seem strong. Not like their parts would fly off easy. Like they pack punch and can get busy.
I mean it's not a night/day difference from the Bay versions, clearly they share a very obvious design connection. But I think these bots have better proportions.
There's still room to "grow"…I'd love to finally see some well designed faces with good articulation. Not that highly shiny/reflective, super-segmented stuff, but something more Quintessa-ish with a dirty BLINN for a surface. It's doable, seen plenty of 3D modelers do it, and I think it's coming eventually, but of course the director has to push it through from the design department. But these two guys probably just like this look. God, I'd love to have my chance at bat!
IS Dropkick shorter than Shatter?
I thought they were cool looking.
