Now point out where Movie Bumblebee actully looks like Bumblebee?
Your argument wasn't that the movie Bumblebee doesn't look like his cartoon/comic/toyline G1 appearance. It was that movie Bumblebee was a direct ripoff of EVA-00, which, apart from the similarity of the knee/boot and the angular chest plates, is completely baseless. Even if they did draw some inspiration from the EVA the similarities are nowhere near close enough to make it a direct rip-off or even an obvious homage. People going about making statements that this and that is a ripoff of the mecha from Gundam/Evangelion/Dunbine/Escaflowne/whatever other anime they've never actually watched has gotten old fast.
No, no, no, Bumblebee couldn't pass for EVA-00 in a live-action movie. Evangelion fans have enough to slap their foreheads over about the upcoming movie without having to worry about the 'general public' being willing to accept Hollywood doing to the EVAs what they've done to Megatron and Starscream.
The argument works both ways. He does look like eva, he doesn't look like Bumblebee. I haven't changed the argument it's all the same thing. The point being that movie Bumblebee should have any resembalnce to anything other that G1 Bumblebee.
Of course when any movie gets made designs get changed around but there are still some simularities between the original. There are no simularities with Transformers but there are with eva, Gundum, and whatever other animes you can think of with gient robots.
How is it that the Transformers movie designs resemble every kind of robot out there EXCEPT for Transformers?
This isn't a new agument either, the fans have been asking this question ever sene the first leaked image, this eva guy just makes things worse.
