I hope some guy from Funpub isnt reading these posts and saying give em more repaints because they cant get enough of them on the forums. I have a couple KO shattered glass figures that I use as "Cybertronian Decpeticons". I dont really like the SG concept because it just seems too "comic bookish" to be used on the big screen or a TV mini-series.
And the the whole concept seems to have originated with the Mirror Universe of Star Trek (a TV series).
That’s a valid point. Although I have never been a star trek fan, Ill trust you on that one. As far as shattered glass being featured on the cancelled season of animated, I see no problem with one episode. I mean what didn’t they do in the G1 series in one episode ??? Turn Prime into a gator, send Galvatron to therapy, make Powerglide fall in love, Have Astrotrain as a sky god, put Spikes mind in a robot, etc. Plenty of one time off the wall ideas for 22 minute episodes. But a whole series or a big screen film based on shattered glass ??? I don’t think so. I don’t think Michael Bay would touch a convention inspired continuity that deviates so much from what the average fair weather fan knows about Transformers. Same goes for a TV series that draws off of what kids already know and love. Optimus the hero. Bumblebee the sidekick. Megatron the villain. Starscream the coward. Some things don’t change even after 25 years.
No lets put Transformers aside for a second and imagine if the shattered glass concept had been applied to Star Wars or GI Joe.
Heroic Darth Vader dressed in all white with his evil son Luke Skywalker who wears black.
Evil Duke wearing dark blue against his arch enemy Heroic Cobra Commander dressed in camouflage Army fatigues.
Sounds pretty stupid right ???
(I hope you said yes and I will assume you did)
So if that was stupid, how does the cool factor come into play when the concept is used on Transformers ??? Is it because they are robots and not humans ???
I dunno, so maybe you can tell me in your honest opinion why Botcon fans go gaga for shattered glass ???
