TRANSFORMERS: RISE OF THE BEASTS Set Video Reveals A First Look At Optimus Prime's New G1-Inspired Design

A new Transformers: Rise of the Beasts set video reveals our first look at Optimus Prime in his vehicular form, while we also have a sneak peek at Scourge and another mystery Autobot or Decepticon...

Cameras are currently rolling on Transformers: Rise of the Beasts, and Optimus Prime is also rolling out through the streets of Brooklyn, New York. As you can see below, the iconic Autobot appears to have a new G1-inspired design, and while we don't know how he'll look in his robot form, chances are it will more along the lines of what we saw in Bumblebee than Michael Bay's movies.

Despite struggling at the box office, Bumblebee - which definitely returned to the franchise's classic roots - was the most critically acclaimed instalment of this franchise to come along in some time. 

Very little is known about Transformers 7, but it is expected to be based on the classic Beast Wars animated series. That means the likes of Optimus Primal and Rhinox will take centre stage, but as this set video confirms, there will still be some room for classic Autobots (and Decepticons, we're sure). 

Earlier this year, we spoke to Dexter alum Luna Lauren Velez who confirmed she will appear in the movie. "I'm doing Transformers 7 which I'm very excited about," the actress confirmed. "I play Anthony Ramos' mom in that film, so there's some exciting stuff coming up." 

Check out this Transformers: Rise of the Beasts set video below along with a photo that offers a glimpse of Scourge and another unidentified vehicle we're assuming is an Autobot:
