Seibertron's news staff is great (one of the best imo), don't get me wrong, but when I scroll down to the comments I read insightful comments like 'They should stop quoting the 1986 movie, and my ShOuLdEr's HuRt because of it'. Ridiculous, I remember when I would of jumped out of my seat if I heard "Light our 'darkest hour'". How dare they use 'darkest hour' to describe probably what will be the Autobot's darkest hour. Are they going to off Optimus? WHO KNOWS? I mean, this time around Hot Rod won't do it for sure, maybe it will be Smokescreen instead.
Aren't we entitled to opinions?
I mean I guess we could take quotes from the Bay movies with such gems like:
"AHHHHHHHHH" Shia Lebouf screaming as per normal (This was a Rifftrax parody)
How about Bumblebee peeing on people. That would just be great to homage.
On a show rated TV-Y7? Deaths make it dark enough, we don't need to see robo-genitals.
How about Devastator having two wrecking test...'balls'.
Again, we don't need to see robo-genitals.
One wonders why the live action movies are not homaged more and why the G1 movie is and always be a jewel of Transformers-dom.
And if it wasn't? Who knows where we'd be now.
I am fine with 1986 homages. Those who are not fine with them are a very small vocal minority who thinks they are the majority.
When Optimus and Megatron use "One Shall Stand, One Shall Fall" 100 times in 52 episodes...
If what you all are saying is true, then Fall of Cybertron should not of sold very well. It sold very well because it hit all the right notes when it came to referencing the movie.
More power to it, we're not saying the G1 Movie should be banned from modern TF media dialogue. It's when these lines become a common occurrence. When there's no dialogue variety, it tends to become boring; that's all.
