Hi all,
Here’s the rundown of the movie panel earlier today at San Diego Comic Con, lifted shamelessly from TFW2005.com:

Our team has made it into the famous Hall H and are on the scene at the Bumblebee Movie panel with juicy details on the upcoming film. Check out the full rundown after the jump!

Brand new footage from the film will be shown, featuring the Decepticons and other characters
Travis Knight discusses creating this “new” look for Bee, blending modern aesthetics with cartoony, more G1-inspired looks
Cybertron is going to be featured in the film as Bumblebee’s backstory is elaborated on and why he comes to Earth in the first place
Official confirmation that Shatter and Dropkick are triple changers!
The seeker shown in the trailers is NOT Starscream but Blitzwing! However, it is unknown right now if he is also a triple changer.

Q&A time!

In place of Bee during shooting, man on stilts was used
Knight: “Bumblebee will surprise people.”
To Cena: “What did you like about Transformers?”
“Having a Transformer is like have two toys.”

I am a tad confused over this line - its like a continuation of CHUG that we haven't got (with Micromasters) but at the same time, is a new line with completely new take on the characters.

Ironhide is love, Cog looks good.
Rest look pretty good as well

But DECEPTICONS!!!

I watched a few Seibertron videos this evening and the one-sided nature of the reveal was commented on several times - including by a Hasbro employee on the panel!!! - without any explanation as to why it is. Very frustrating.

Unless of course they don't want to spoil the reveal of the Decepticons because they're going to be the various Seacons. Not bloody likely though unfortunately.

I'm only placing this here because the original poster at TFW didn't indicate where it's from and I can't help but feel this poster was given out at Hasbro's booth: the first 25 Studio Series figures in number order and to scale.

Cheers! Just playing catch up. Man, I hope I don't end up getting the Beetlebee AND this so I get the human to go with the Beetle.

Maybe I just wait for the rumoured MPM Bee...
