Thanks to Monocle from the Allspark forums we get our very first glimpse of Transformers: Prime Bumblebee! What do you think of his new look?

Combine the Movie / protoform Bumblebee look with the smooth sleekness of Beast Machines, add the bubbly eyes of Animated, and this is what you get. It's quite a bit different than the very G1 look of War for Cybertron, but still, I like it!

I'll say what I've said elsewhere. He looks... far too identical to the Movie version of BB to be a new character.

First we hear the show *may* be connected to WFC game, but this looks more like a movie connection.

I'm hoping that this is just an early look and that the final product will look unique enough to not be a mere movie knockoff like this one is. :geek:

Hmmm...this looks strikingly similar to the movie-verse BB design.

I'm not sure if I like the looks of this, considering the fact that it appears to be somewhat related to the movie line BUT Animated had some Bay-verse references in it as well and I can honestly say that I thoroughly enjoyed that series. I guess I'll just do what I normally do when waiting for a new show, try to completely forget about it so that way if it does suck then I haven't got my hopes up for nothing. If it succeeds, however, then I'll be more than happy to embrace this new continuity with open arms.

BB looks very young in this pic . Could it be that hes in his proto form?
I always hoped that hasbro would take the movie version bots and put them on cartoon network.

Nope. Here's what Protoform Bumblebee looks like:

Let's see, we've got Kurtzman and Orci as executive story editors and that's the look of Bumblebee??? Sure seems to me like they're doing, Movie-verse expanded to me! I don't object to this idea, though I'd prefer and expansion of "mainstream" Transformers (G1, Beast Wars/Machines, Unicron Trilogy and TF:Animated >which of course to me is all easily connected...) What if this show made an attempt to connect movie-verse w/ the rest??

'Twould be pointless, since they're offically all separated. Hasbro supports the multiverse and universal stream ideas (G1/Beast Era = Primax, Unicron Trilogy = Aurex, Movies = Tyran, Animated = Malgus, and our real world = Quadwal). No matter what fanon we may believe, we cannot fight (and win) against canon facts. There are some canon things I dislike and don't agree with as well, but my (and everyone's) fanon is always trumpted by canon.

My guess is that this show is going to take place before the first movie.
