Are there any other twins? Arcee, Elita-1, and Chromia are triplets in my opinion, even if they have been referred to as twins whether in movie or comic.


I dont know of any other actual related twins other than listed but I do know a few other repaints and remolds.
Ironhide and Ratchet.
Grapple and Inferno.
Sideswipe and Red Alert?

So, might it be possible that Megatron will be *gasp* comic relief, instead of hell bent on destruction?

I only like two of the writers at AICN. Massawyrm is one and Capone is the other. So if Capone likes it then I'm a bit more optimistic about the movie. BUT, with that said, AICN is still the site that said that Revenge of the Sith was going to be awesome.

Caution:contain Spoilers: I am a Tranformers Fan and After watching TF 3, I feel totally unhappy and frustrated. :sad: for starters, Shockwave looks cool, a very scary one eyed decepticon. The Last time I check, he's a decepticon military strategist who always have something logical to say. in this latest installment, well,He doesn't talk much, (Say something Logical, Darn IT!) making him look like just taking orders and not thinking. Secondly, Megatron. In the First Movie He's a very powerful decpticon robot then became kinda weak in the second one. But here, totally pathethic! :BANG_HEAD: I'm not a Megatron fan, at least he should fight like a ruthless decipticon warrior. I don't know, maybe I like G1 cartoons more, Having said that, all I could think of is just sit on my chair and read my G1 comic book. Oh, by the way. With Utmost respect! Micahael Bay should really stop making another TF movie.

Oh where to begin...

1.) This is not G1. This universe is a reboot. This is not the same Optimus, Megatron or Shockwave. These are new takes on old characters. This. Is. Not. G1. Sorry, but it's not.

2.) Megatron is very weak due to his injuries.
Those include:
A gaping hole in his HEAD.
He was stabbed and shot repeatedly.

3.) This is Bay's last movie.

You're entitled to enjoy G1 more, but you're not being fair to the movieverse when you compare the two, simply for the fact that this a reboot and not G1. That being said, more for us.

None taken. I know it's not G1, and it's also not really my place to say this, but by making a movie that something we are familiar with since childhood, they should at least try to study it more thoroughly... I mean such characters like megatron, optimus, sidewipe to name among others. It really hurts when you see them got different personality. Megatron's injuries are noted, while Prime had one arm left after battling with Sentinel, I won't mind Megatron losses, but not lasting for 3 minutes!? Megatron should have repair himself first, He can always go to Cybertron.(He flew to cybertron right after he is revived by fellow decepticon in TF 2)I also know that this is Bay's last movie, but you never know what will happens next in hollywood.

Here's the problem, Bay knew nothing of TransFormers. He was only given a certain amount of info, from both the writers and producers. Since he was an outsider and given not much to work with, I can't blame him for not knowing the mythos. In all fairness, it runs deep, and in many directions. Heck, there are 'verses I know nothing about. Nor do I care. So if a fan has that problem, imagine an outsider who's thinking this is all a joke.

The writers all grew up with this stuff, they knew the source material, they admitted this, and look at the changes they created! They should be ashamed of themselves.

Megatron couldn't repair himself, no Energon. The only source on Earth is The Matrix, and Prime ain't coughin' it up for his arch enemy.

Actually, no, he didn't fly to Cybertron in the second movie. That was a crashed Cybertronian carrier, but it wrecked on Saturn's moon. (One of them, I should say, I don't think it was clarified as to which moon. If it was, I can't remember.)

As for Bay, they could bring him back if they cough up enough money. However, if I was him, I'd stand my ground and say no. Hell no.

Maybe I'm asking too much...Well, Yeah! you might be right, this film could be intended not just for TF Fans, but for all patronages, but right now the impact of this movie still hit me hard! I guess I have to live with this for a time being and Wish somebody who is worthy enough came along and direct anonther Transformers Movie. Maybe another Transformers Reboot.
