Actually, by not naming him Ultra Magnus, that shows they don't want to do that. Dino and Q were suppose to be Mirage and Wheeljack. It's lame the toys will still be referred to as such.
They certainly couldn't have called Sentinel, Nemesis Prime, that would have been too obvious.
They do have some concern, not as much as other adaptations, but sentinel being magnus would have been worse.
and just because they don't look like boxes running around doesn't make them ugly. get over it.
anyone else notice that there were nods to two G1 story lines in the movie?
and what.. the movie universe can't be it's own universe? it HAS to be the G1 universe?
they try to use the names that we know because that's what the fans want. and i guess you missed all of the characters that they did well..
i love G1 as much as the next guy.. but there's already a G1.. this can't be something new, for new fans? i thought sentinel prime was a great choice for the movie. he's a character that i've certainly never cared for. and now he's got a major role and is in the spotlight. i think it's great. bringing new life to an old name.
Hhmm. Here's a clean cut case of someone putting another person's argument in my mouth. where the hell did i mention G1??? I'm glad you're a G1 fan, many of us are. Actually, I'll be a good sport and answer your questions since you seem to be a person of assumptions:
"anyone else notice that there were nods to two G1 story lines in the movie?" Sorry. I didn't see it yet. Give me a few hours.
"and what.. the movie universe can't be it's own universe?" Absolutely.
"it HAS to be the G1 universe?" No, but again, who mentioned G1?
"and i guess you missed all of the characters that they did well.." You mean Mikaela, right? lol
"i love G1 as much as the next guy.. but there's already a G1.. this can't be something new, for new fans?" Sure! But, uh...who mentioned G1? I respect the movie-verse as something new and for what it's done for the franchise as a whole but I still think the movie designs are fugly. If you are tired of hearing that then YOU get over it.
