Transformers Set Video Shows Modified Optimus Prime
A Twitter post made by Cris Packer gives us the perfect behind-the-scene look at the new Optimus Prime’s design. The new G1 design could be seen driving down a street in Brooklyn, NY, exactly where the shooting is taking place. Moreover, the design clearly features a classic bright red and blue color.

Subsequently, the movie is set to take place in 1994. In 2018, we saw a look at the G1 Optimus design. But, this new set video reveals a slight change which is the silver striping on the front. However, the design looks pretty slick. In a recent interview, director Steven Caple Jr. talked about paying homage to the 90’s action movies. He said:
“As a fan and watching all the Transformers films, and then stepping into Bumblebee, I love the way he went back into ’87. Again, it adds again to the nostalgia and something that people remember or connect to.”
Now, when we talk about nostalgia and texture, it looks like the new design might just hit the sweet spot. Talking about the members, three Maximal have been confirmed. These include Optimus Primal (voiced by Ron Perlman), Airazor, and Rhinox. Moreover, Bumblee and Optimus Prime are confirmed. Plus, Nightbird, Mirage, and the Decepticon Scourge are confirmed.
