QFT. I dislike the Hummer. The colors are realistic, however, and if I remember correctly, that was what they were aiming for....
Extreme realism shouldn't be applied to everything. Transformers is one of those things. Realism in a movie is fine, but making realism one of the number one goals is taking it too far. Can you imagine if LOTR went by that idea? If Michael Bay is as obsessed with realism as he appears, he was the last person Hasbro should've considered.
Bad, bad, very bad, comparaison. LOTR took place in a fantasy realm. Transformers is supposed to be happening on our world. Realism is not only important, its key, if not crucial, to getting the mainstream audience to accept it.
What I'm trying to say is that almost nothing in Transformers is realistic. Same with LOTR. On that key point, it applies. Mass shifting and humanoid robots are as believable as hobbits and wizards. Realism shouldn't be stressed on something so unrealistic. It's like making a lightsaber an plain, old, actual metal sword.
I'd say the vehicle modes are realistic (minus Megatron of course). That's not nothing. Having human actors interact with them is realistic. Having the military react to the Transformers is realistic.
Would you rather cut ALL the realism and go with 100% fantasy?
I know I wouldn't.
BTW, with you bringing up lightsabres, one has to wonder how hypocritical that is considering your sig picture...
I said almost. I ment "almost nothing" as in mass shifting, object alts, cyber keys, Unicron, etc...; I never said 100% would be good. I said that Bay is overkilling realism.
I never gave the Screamer in my sig a lightsaber. That is an actual scene from "Cramp". The lightsaber comparison was to show the Star Wars equivilent of how drastic the changes Bay made are. There is nothing hypocritical in that.
