Optimus Prime I Hardly Knew Ye

What has Michael Bay done to my once smooth and handsome robot love?!

I had heard that he was making “some changes” to the body (i.e. adding flames, and elongating the nose on the truck), but why so pointy? I don’t want this new Prime to protect me from Decepticons with his gentle yet powerful alien hands. I want to run away from him for fear of accidental impalement. Unless I can somehow learn to disassociate the Bay version from the original (which will be difficult given that Peter Cullen is voicing him), I’m not sure I can bear to see this film.
