Yeah, and his cannon in RoTF sounds much better.


Honestly, I can't tell if you're being sarcastic [impossible to tell with written words alone 8-} my apologies if you weren't], but Megs' ROTF cannon sound effects are still rather high-pitched, but with more bass added.

But yeah, much better.

Funny, I can't recall how his shotgun sounded like in DOTM, but I think it was more was similar to ROTF. Better, but still rather high-pitched for my tastes.

The charging up sound effect is a nice touch, though.

:lol:

I was serious. Yeah, it still sounds kinda high pitched, but it's not "pew-pew" but instead you can hear the cannon charge up before he fires it. It just sounds a lot better. And I thought the shotgun sounded like any ordinary blaster, which was kinda disappointing. It's Megatron, everything about him should be distinctive. But, then again, it is Bayverse. They seldom get the characters right.

Yeah, it was the same as in ROTF.

I agree about Megatron. He's like the ultimate badass of Cybertron, so he's got to drip menace and power in every aspect. I personally like Bayverse Megs as much as his G1 design, maybe even a little more, but details like the cannon sounds shouldn't have been overlooked.

In the movies, he looks nigh invincible, especially in his ROTF version, and then you hear, "pew-pew-pew!"

It's a pity, because I really like his Bayverse look.

I recently saw a bit of the movie 'Mighty Joe Young', which is about a giant gorilla loose in LA. Joe the gorilla is trying to evade the police and hides under a bridge in one of those LA storm channels. Joe braces himself right under the bridge platform. In Transformers (2007), Optimus hides under a similar bridge in a very similar way to avoid Sector 7. Rip off, coincidence or Beast Wars reference?! :-?

Since it's Prime imitating a gorilla (gonna watch Mighty Joe Young now to confirm this) I'm gonna go with Beast Wars nod. Besides, it's not exactly a "rip off" to pull the same stunt else everyone who had a hero run away from an explosion would owe Michael Bay a ton of money. :michaelbay:
