Transformers movie gigantic superthread

Posted by asterphage 
Maybe if their design philosophy wasn't "piles of junk and shredded metal that sorta bounce around on screen" they could've done something better.
Or maybe if they had just decided to cut their (and by "their" I mean "our") losses and ditch Michael "Action Scenes are better in Closeup" Bay.

More serious than thou

What the hell?

There's like two or three ROTF TF's I want so far. Wheelie is one of them.

I love it for some damn reason.

The movie toys aren't so bad if I pretend that they aren't Transformers. Bulldozer guy is pretty cool.

Fuck's sake, what the hell is this? Man, I wouldn't mind losing Universe so much if we were getting some cool stuff. But when I see garbage like this I just wanna shit on it.

My local K-Mart is already clearancing out the larger Universe toys, which was kind of depressing in a way... although no one had bought many of them, and the discount didn't amount to too much.

The only two Transformers I recognise are Vortex and Brawl, but why are there multiples of them?

And wait--he's an Autobot...but isn't that a Decepticon symbol on his wing?
Crotchety old robot can't be troubled to remember what side he's on. He just wants to go to the beach.
So...Bandai remains the only company having pulled off a believable transformable SR-71 (ignoring the huge landing gears)...23 years ago.
Roujin Jetfire!

I feel conflicted. Alt mode is great (sans robot kibble), but the robot mode I'm not so sure on. It's interesting but part of me wanted Jetfire to still look like it's G1 Valkyrie self.

Wow....just awful...I can honestly say that I am happy that these things look so bad...and yet americans are eating this up...the first movie was terrible, and this one looks like it will be no better....
Actually it reminds me of... Bionicle.
Except with Bionicle you can take it apart and make something cool....
Heh...one piece of the ugly sonofabitch fell off...
thomas: It appears that Devastator is so ugly that pieces of it are trying to disassociate themselves from the whole....good luck little piece of robot kibble...

Hey maybe we should join in and go ahead and disassociate ourselves from this movie as well.

I'll bet you could take Junkfire apart with a hammer and make something cool.

So, is he the property's new token handicapped person?

Hahahaha! The new Chip!
The movie design philosophy doesn't bother me much. I kinda like them but really not enough to want much from it. So far there's only two figures I want to get from the ROTF line. That's be Rampage and Wheelie. Two weird but not ugly IMO or at least their what I refer to as attractive ugly, like Makoto Kobayashi's mecha designs. I don't want to invest much into the movie figures.

So Bayformers are like "Dragon's Hell"?
I wish I had something to say here, but I just don't care enough about the movies to waste anymore brain cells on them...sorry
I definitely have buyer's regret about the first movie line... I think it was more the "man these are selling out fast" hype than me actually liking the majority of the designs, though some of the toys are great. I think I'm sitting this one out and hoping/praying for more classics after.

On a side note, the GI Joe community seems to be similarly dismayed that the movie line is taking over from the "classic" line.
Yahoo news just posted the movie bot list. Way to stay on the edge. whee.

The doctor will see you now.

Also, Wheelie turns into a TOY monster truck in the movie.
