as for the movies, maybe they weren't the best or what everyone wanted, but they were fun. i don't know what everyone expected, but i went to see giant robots transform and fight each other, both movies gave me that,(the forest scene in ROTF was epic.) i don't get g1 fans who complain about the plots of these movies. do you even remember the g1 cartoon? trust me the plots of most episodes of the g1 series would have you guys begging for a story as good as ROTF. mr. bay didn't rape your childhood, he didn't ruin transformers, some people need to move on from this hating.
LOL, really? You really need to check your facts before you post. This is just what I been talking about, you sound so ignorant. And you're saying the exact things I been talking about. Dead or dying?
I can't help but laugh cuz you couldn't be more wrong.
And, really, I go back and watch G1(which I have been doin' with my son lately) and I'd be begging for a plot as "good
" as ROTF? WRONG! Hell, go back and watch the season 2 episode "Changing Gears", wonder where the idea for the Solar Harvester came from, hmmmmmmm....... Gotta love this kinda stuff actually, very entertaining, the whole "I have absolutely no facts to back up what I'm saying so I'll bash something else in a nerd rage". Keep 'em coming.
