Every series that comes out has a basic retelling in a new form, transformers are always the same old things but with prettier colors and drawings each time, and with a little bit more anime influence each time. The original g1 stuff was not compelling storytelling by any means. People fear change and that has been never so prevalent as it is with the development of this movie and its complaints that the "purists" always seem to have

I like the movie desighns i just hate the heads. Evrey TF line that has come out and has used the same bots have given them heads that look like there G1 heads. Prime example Starscream. Take evrey Starscream figure and look at the heads.They either look the same or are verey close. And also Megatron is crap. He should have an arm cannnon and turn into a tank or a giant railgun cannon. Or at least be a triple changer.Tank, Jet, Robot. And Meg's head is the worst in the movie. He now has no chance of tricking humans to trust him. Like in that one G1 episoide were he tricks the humans that the Autobots are the enemy and the Decepticons are good. If this Megatron would say that would you trust him? No just look at his menicing head.He's the evil space robot comeing to kill us all. I see were Bay was going with the movie bots. He wanted to do someting new. But he made it to new and to diffrent. And if you dont want to pay money to see the movie then get it on bootleg or get a free movie ticket thing like i have. Im going to use the free ticket thing that im saveing to see it and then im getting it on bootleg. If its good then i'll go and pay money to see it. But if it sucks balls then i'll watch the bootleg to see the shiney ILM effects.

And i know my spelling is off but im not fixing it because im typeing this on my PSP and it is a pain in the ass to go and check my spelling.

This movie is going to be crap, that's my honest opinion and if anyone asks for it that's what I'm going to tell them. I'l tell them how Michael Bay is directing it, well known for crap movies, how it's less about Transformers and more about action, how it has the sort of comedy that appeals to a disfuctional 9 year old, how they messed up the Transformers designs, how the Matrix is now called the Allspark, and ho the story is simplistic and uninspired. If that doesn't turn them off them more fool them.

...from my understanding the "allspark" is just a generic artifact that wasn't really meant to represent anything. In fact, from the pic they had of Sam carrying it, not to mention earlier codenames for it, it looked like they were going to make it an Energon cube.

....kinda funny how bay despises "blocky" robots yet the artifact they are seeking is a plain black cube...the very essence of "block"...assuming they aren't going to touch it up to be a different design, naturally.

Because the original transformers series was not simplistic, think before the comics came around, before everything had this extensive 25 year backstory and go back to when you first watched those first couple episodes. Simplicity at its finest.


I personally didn't like the original G1 Cartoon all that much. Even as a 6-9 year old kid i found it simplistic, poorly written, full of continuity errors and badly amimated. It was made purly to sell toys and the guys making it gave very little thought/or care to charactersiation and storytelling, it was just another pay cheque to them. You're right this movie is much the same but I dont se that as a good thing I see it as a several steps backwards.
