BB is a mute that can only speak through music while in his alt mode.

Hey, Siebs, tell me you'll have it up prior to/around 2:30am :PRAY: . I'm stuck at work, and that's my next break.

Okay, I just got back from dinner with Ben Yee (bwtf.com) and Kevin and Jason Lukis (unicron.com). Kevin and Jason just left the bar downstairs and now it's time for me to work before I hit the sack. Man, tomorrow is going to suck for sleep.

I still think the robots could have been designed better ... but after watching the Autobots interact in a scene that I won't mention here, I'm convinced finally that the movie guys got it right.

You're suprised by the change of heart? ;;)

Of course it's ironic that people who condemned the movie based on un-finished material now seem to be praising it based on the opinions of others who have only seen a small sampling.

Hey guys,

I've written about 1/2 of my review of the "event" so far. I haven't gotten to writing about the incredible scenes that we saw at the theatre. I'm falling asleep writing this since I only got about 4 hours of sleep last night and have been up since 7 this morning (Eastern). I have a long day of traveling tomorrow and will have plenty of time to finish writing my review then. I'm going to get some sleep tonight and promise that there'll be a review up on the site within 24 hours. New York kicked my ass. It's been a blast but I'm beat!

Motto: "Never too late to Collect!"
Weapon: Gattling Gun
Ok, this I find very interesting ...

I asked, "Why is Optimus Prime a long nose Peter-built model rather than the classic flat-nose version?" Bay responded explaining that the flat-nose version would not allow Prime to realistically transform into the 28-foot tall robot they were looking for. The classic look gave Prime a height of only 23 feet, while the longer nose gives Prime more to work with when transforming. This height difference was a factor in keeping Megatron and Prime in the proper scale to each other.


Damn, if I'd known Bay wanted a TALL Optimus I would've sent him MY design! Its based on a Peterbilt VERY close to the movie's, (MINUS the flames!) and is surprisingly faithful to G1 OP. I actually went to a Peterbilt yard with my measuring tape, did the numbers, and mine came out at 36 feet, give or take about 2 feet.

It wasn't a small sampling. It was about 25 minutes of film. 4 different scenes. Sure, there's a lot that we haven't seen but what I did see was absolutely incredible. I still think there were better ways to do the robot modes but what I saw tonight was mind blowing. I get it now. Now I understand what they were trying to tell us when they said "you need to wait until you see this in person, see a Transformer transform."

You know someone did.

I'm still on the fence as whether or not I'll see this movie.


I would highly doubt it. It was mostly people in suits. Not the kind of people that would be sneaking in a camera.

Good to know you've been swayed for the most part. Maybe it'll get a few others to rethink whether or not they'll see it. Regardless I'm glad you're not posting this till morning. Gives me a chance to sleep before reading a long review.

Did anyone see this from the article:

Michael Bay also stated that it takes them something like 38 hours to render 1 frame of the film with the robots in it.


38 hours for 1 frame? There's either very few frames with robots in it or else Bay needs to get moving quickly if he wants to make deadline.

Well, I am very glad they invited you. I give Dreamworks or Paramount credit if they were the ones who offered you an invitation.

I'm thinking that has to be a misprint. I don't care if you have a million poly model it's not going to take that long to render a single frame. 38 minutes? Yeah that's understandable.

That's what I was saying ... don't judge until you see it. Though you were at least open minded about things Ryan, I just hope some of those who are firmly against the movie will at least be swayed enough to CONSIDER checking it out and who knows, hopefully fully supporting it.

Holy crap, I think this movie might just make it! From the IGN article:

"And that's when you hear the classic transforming noise from the cartoon. Yes, guys, it's in there."

Awesome.

This sounds sweet. I, like many others had my reservations about the bot designs but gave up a long time ago hoping for a G1 accurate movie. I've just gone with this crazy roller coaster ride of a process and prayed every step of the way that Bay could put his skills to best use (some would say he has no skill, but I digress).

Anyway, looks like the PMA has paid off looking at the preview reviews :) I can't wait to read yours Ryan.

I'd like to think they'd be swayed, but I doubt it. No matter how many people say it looks good you'll always have the haters.

And darn you needing sleep, Seibs :lol: . Now I gotta what til tomorrow evening when I wake up to read your review.
