I don't get why studios want the first look at their characters to be in toys, or something like this, before official looks
ManofSteel23 - 1/15/2014, 8:24 PM
why would he be samurai...

What the f@ck is that?!

I really liked the bot designs for the first movie, but Bay got too comfortable designing bots, for the sequels, as stereotyped caricatures. The "ethnic" robots have gold teeth. The old robot walks around on a cane and farts a lot. The NASCAR robots have mullets and trucker caps, etc.

Come to think of it, I don't think Bay is capable of creating characters, but is just a slave to stereotypes, which is why our chinese robot is basically a Mandarin-speaking Samurai (that's the rumor).

The character from the comics refused to use guns. He's one of my favorites in the IDW books. Im not surprised they changed his look. Knowing Bay he will probably speak Japanese.

The Blue/Silver Samurai.

Weak minded dogsh!t for the weak-minded, retarded, & children...

And this garbage will continue forever as long as this junk pulls a billion bux per movie.

Proof that Armegeddon can't be THAT far away....

Is this the chinese robot that's going to be speaking Mndarin?
GetsugaTensho22 - 1/15/2014, 8:55 PM
Why would a CHINESE robot be wearing JAPANESE armor?
Further proof that Micheal Bay views all non-caucasian american cultures as generalised stereotypes.
pesmerga44 - 1/15/2014, 8:57 PM
Man Bay take the samurai motif to the extreme why don't you what is he going to speak with a crazy Japanese accent speaking broken "Engrish". Damn Bay way to ruin aesthetically a character I like from the newer comics.
pesmerga44 - 1/15/2014, 8:59 PM
For the love of God let this be fake because that is such a shit design.
Jimdlux - 1/15/2014, 9:01 PM
ALRIGHT!!! FINALLY GET TO SEE DRIFT!!! Who the F&!# is Drift...?
pesmerga44 - 1/15/2014, 9:05 PM

He is a creation of the newest Transformers comics made by IDW basically he is an ex Decepticon that was left for dead after a mission and was found by a faction of Cybertronians who were pacifist's and against the war. He was healed by them and taught their ways after a group of slavers attacked the group and Drift fought and killed them he left the group and became an Autobot.
MightyZeus - 1/15/2014, 9:09 PM
Look's like Silver Samurai?

Where the hell is the Unicron?
SuperCat - 1/15/2014, 9:14 PM
TheAlmightyGinger - 1/15/2014, 10:11 PM
Is this a joke... Why the frick would he be a samurai
BrowniesExplode - 1/15/2014, 10:40 PM
I just read the Transformers 4 wikipedia and it said "There are a group of Japanese transformers" and I think this is one of them.
loki668 - 1/15/2014, 10:54 PM

I was thinking the same thing when I saw that image: "I wonder how long it will take Hugh Jackman to come out and fight this thing."
Humperdink - 1/15/2014, 11:00 PM
Now if it speaks like a goofy Asian stereotype, we can throw him in with these two.

Also...a Mandarin speaking Samurai robot in China?

JediPhilosopher - 1/15/2014, 11:44 PM
Michael Bay does the same wrong thing many directors do, disregard the characteristics and personalities of established characters.
NovaCorpsFan - 1/15/2014, 11:45 PM
That seems fake. Just too many similarities to the likes of Silver Samurai.
Enki - 1/16/2014, 2:11 AM
You can bet that if he has any lines in the script they're also going to give him a stereotypical Japanese accent.

This is not looking good.
Invictor - 1/16/2014, 3:23 AM
That looks like Bludgeon more than it does Drift.But I like the entire Transformers samurai concept.
NoPhucksGiven - 1/16/2014, 4:08 AM
[frick] you Mr. Bay
SeanNoah34 - 1/16/2014, 5:55 AM
@sKeemAn GO NINERS!!!!!!
GunnersArsenal - 1/16/2014, 10:17 AM
This actually looks cool... Besides the fact that he's wearing Japanese armor when he's supposed to be Chinese. Dammit Bay, ya screwed this up already. It still looks cool though, so that's a plus. I cannot wait to see him fight, seems awesome
Bartimus82 - 1/16/2014, 11:06 AM
