The final theatrical trailer for Michael Bay's Transformers hit the web today. It's lean on plot, and we don't care, because the action sequences are enough to make your eyes melt. We have Bumblebee dishing it out (and taking it on the chin, it appears). There's Starscream performing trick midair transformation acrobatics. And as you see above, there's Optimus Prime getting ready to go kung-fu all over your candy asses. And that's not even the half of it. After all, there's Megan Fox, too.

Best line: "It's probably Japanese."

47 days, kids...

The trailer's embedded after the jump.

      Holy SH!T. That was... no words can describe how amazing that was. I do not care if the acting is terrible or the story or the robot lips all I know is this movie is going to be great!

      "It's probably Japanese"

      This in a movie in which the cars and aircraft and military equipment are all American?

      Can't wait to see this movie though.

      "radical liberal, tom cruise"

      Tom Cruise is a liberal? Not so sure what the hell he is. He's definitely a radical something, but I am not sure and anti psychiatry, extremist, scientologist is a liberal. Maybe even a conservative. Maybe he's just a nut bag. Fortunately he's not in this movie.

      Now, to the topic at hand... I am giddy over this movie. Anyone know a single chick that's actually going to see it willingly? I am guessing opening night will be all dudes.

      dude this trailer is fantastic in 1080p. I've upgraded the film from Hulk/Punisher/Daredevil suckitude to Xmen 3 alright entertainment level.

      "Transformers $%#%#@$%!@%$#!@ Robots in Disguise!!!"

      Dudes and pissed off girlfriends (if there are any).

      Anyway, I'm all about it! Even if Jazz is a Soltice instead of a Porsche Martini race car...and Micheal Bay is directing...

      AUTOBOTS, ROLL OUT!!

      "It's probably Japanese"

      This isn't a reference to real-life robots; it's a callback to the fact that Transformers are essentially Japanese. The original pre-1984 figures, before they were even called "Transformers" occupied several different Japanese toylines (hence the inconsistent scale, eg: Soundwave vs Prowl vs Bumblebee) by Takara.

      Throughout the years, and even today, most of the design and engineering was, and is still, done by Takara. Optimus Prime, a true American icon, is in essence a robotic Japanese Samurai (hence the mouthplate and helmet); he just speaks kind of like John Wayne (Peter Cullen's inspiration for the voice).

      Movie magic: when Hollywood can spend more than a year making one of the most complex flicks ever...

      ...and they still give us the new Camaro before GM does.

      Gives you an idea of the amount of work that goes into creating a production automobile suitable for the US regulation-choked lawsuit-happy market.
