Shockwave was just plain awesome, Long Haul was pretty cool, Ironhide was excellent, as was Sideswipe, and heads aside I liked Skids and Mudflap.

Whilst they weren't my favourites, I also thought the bike sisters were pretty good, especially the way they still looked feminine despite having wheels for legs.

My favourite? Probably Blackout.

I know what you mean. It looks like they took 5 robots and combined them into one big robot. It doesn't make any sense!

I know, that's why we're all sad they never acknowledged it with a toy. The RPM and Sideways repaint do not count =/

Toss up between Prime with Jetfire's armor and Sentinel Prime. Overall though I think the movie designers deserve a lot of credit for being able to make awesome robot designs with only a fixed amount of mass in each alt mode. Mass shifting, as classic a Transformers trope as it was, always irked me.

Ugh, this thread just keep coming back! :lol: I have to say, after all three movies were said and done, Sentinel Prime came out on top. He's the only transformer in the Transformers movies that gave me that feeling like I was watching G1 again. His design just screams old school, with the head crest and the beard, right down to his sleek and pointy design, complete with cape! He felt like a prime to me, he really did. Even after all he did, he still retained his personality and stature and overall look. Even in his death scene, I remember thinking "This isnt right, they should just capture him, AND Megatron for that matter!" But michael bay wanted him dead. In the original story, the Autobots and the Decepticons would team up to stop Sentinel. That obviously never happened...

I wanted to use this thread again,because i think its really never gonna be outdated.


I wanna talk about Starscream design,because i think it needs more appreciated.
I think the design does a great job of making a Transformers that turn into an F-22.
There have been other F-22 Transformers,but Starscream design was made with some considerations in mind,not only based on himself,but on relation to the robots.

First lets look at the size of the F-22 Raptor
Image
Its huge compared to the other vehicles,if he transformed in "Unfold legs and standing up" way he would be taller than everybody!(And we know that not the direction they were going for)

So he was designed in a way the F-22 folded into itself and spreaded the parts in other directions,making the robot mode big,without outsize the other guys.

His robot mode is sharp and makes an intimidating robot.
http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_IpsH_JdaCsY/S ... ckup03.jpg
http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_IpsH_JdaCsY/S ... scream.jpg

His back has Wings coming out(A nod to his G1 design)and 2 rockets jets.Its nice detail to have,explaining how he is able to fly in robot mode.
Image
His chest is broad and wide with small wings on his shoulders.
The conkpit on his chest is another reference to G1.

His arms are big and long.Some say the arms are too long,but i think if they were shorter ,if whould look like very stubby and have a very short reach.
HIs bulit-in weapons are awesome,with his rocket launchers which can into a Buzzsaw!( :D )
Its also cool how the robot mode's machine gun is the same as the Jet mode.
Image

His legs keep the theme from rest of the body.Sharp looking.

And now,to his head:
I enoy the whole Samurai helmet look he got going.
Image
Image
Some people say he has no face.Lies!Lies i tell you!
Image

So this was my insight on Movie Starscream.I just wanted to express to people why he is one my favorites Starscreams.

I just love it when my old thread gets necrobumped for the exact reason I started it: for the glory of movie Starscream!

And with the new movie about a year away, I suspect some new designs to show up soon. Might have to picka a new favorite.

It isn't? From some of the reactions, I thought that was what all the robots will look like. :-?

I'm a fan of weird inhuman bodyforms, so naturally I was instantly smitten by a lot of the Decepticons. To pick just one, I'll go with:
Image
Who, of course, was relegated to little more than a background filler (to an even worse degree than most Cons). Alas. Still, wicked design that brings the Cloverfield monster to mind, if just for the way the limbs are. The fingers on the, er, elbows? are a neat touch, as is the CHAINSAW MOUTH:

Too bad he never got an official toy.

Wow. I have a whole new respect for that design after seeing it up close like that. Definitely nice.

To be honest I always liked Megatron's Revenge of the Fallen design because flying tanks are just awesome. Heh.
