The first shots of the robot characters from Michael Bay's Transformers have rolled in, but unfortunately they're all in their "car forms," meaning what you're left with is just some pictures of cars. In an effort to infuriate fans, Bay has already begun changing the makes and models of the vehicles. Bumblebee, the popular character who transformed into a Volkswagen Beetle, is now said to be the above car, a Chevrolet Camaro. Also, instead of being a Pisces interested in long walks and fly fishing, he's now a Libra bicycle hobbyist with a "flair for the unusual."
I don't see the point of changing the characters like this, but then again, I never understood why they transformed in the first place. Couldn't most of the robots fly, anyway? Why turn into a car? You're just restricting yourself. Particularly the guy who turned into a tape player. What is he doing as a tape player that he can't do as a robot holding a tape player? If you want a tape player, just bring a tape player. Simple as that.
