Dork Lord of Kittens!
While the chances of them learning anything are slim let's not slam RotB before we even have a trailer to slam on. Hopefully they simplify the designs a tad so it's not impossible for them to focus on the bots more. Though using Avatars would not only give chances for the bots to have more characters but allow the actors to get some face time as well. Though does anyone know how well Cullen acts in person?Very much.
That is (among others) one of Transformers big problems. The robots are not treated as characters. They expected us to be sad Ironhide died but he had less dialog over three movies than Sonic did in his first ten minutes of screen time.
Bumblebee seemed to learn this lesson only for Rise of the Beasts to disregard it totally by shoving in fifteen robots and four? factions.
It’s super maddening because IDWv1 solved pretty much all of this by having a small infiltration team and holomatter avatars which would allow you to have characters without needing $15,000 and three weeks of rendering time.
