Transformers you DON'T want to see in TF4

Postby Capt.Failure » Sat Jun 16, 2012 5:05 am

As the topic says. We have too many "who do you want to see" threads, so let's do it backwards. Now if you ask me who I don't want to see:

Hotrod/Rodimus Prime

With the implications they may be working their way into a movie using G1's latter seasons as an influence I don't want this poor man's replacement of Optimus showing up. Worst character from G1 by far and unworthy of the movie treatment.

No offense to a certain forum goer, of course. :oops:

Perceptor, Grapple, and Hoist are three, that if modernzed from their G1 selves, seem like they would suck.

Wheelie and Brains- I assume they died when they crashed the Decepticon ship, but considering Transformers comes from a long line of comic books and weekly TV episodes, they would probably die a classic comic book death like Megatron and Optimus have numerous times. These two are just starting to get annoying.

Megatron- "WTF ARE YOU CRAZY? THERE HAS TO BE MEGATRON! YOU'RE NOT A TRUE FAN!" Yes, that's right. Now I think we've seen enough Megatrons die and come back. If we have to have Galvatron, he should at least have a visually different appearance than Megatron.

All the Decepticons who have died in the trilogy- Transformers has had its fair share of comic book deaths over the years. We don't need any more, especially when Optimus and Megatron both have gone through them in the movies. Really, the whole "Oh my gosh, he's dead," then "Oh my gosh, now he's NOT dead" routine just isn't going to bring excitement anymore. It's overused.
Please note: If you think I may be joking, I probably am.

I agree none of the ones who are dead should return. I don't want to see any bots that appeared in the '86 animated movie. Please for the love of God don't make that mistake Hollywood. TF post '86 was life-changing and I needed years of therapy after such a traumatic experience.

Unicron - I REALLY don't see the appeal to this "character". A planet devouring Tf in G1, and a chaos bringer in Prime are tolerable, but anywhere else, I cringe at his mere existence. His gimmick is already overused and now something fresh and new needs to come up.

Megatron - "Sigh", I love Megatron, I really do, but his time is up. What more can they do with him, bring him back to life as Galvatron? Lame for this universe. (especially since I imagined Galvy and Megs as two separate characters here.)

All the dead Bots and Cons :( - See above comments for further explanation.

Wreck-Gar - >:oP Lame, next.

Targetmasters & Headmasters - Again, what is the appeal to these groups.

Wreck-Gar - I can just see him becoming the Jar Jar Binks of the Bayverse movies.

Megatron - If he's just going to end up being another villain's b!tch, I'd rather let him rest in pieces peace.

Hot Rod(imus) - If he's anything like his G1 self, I don't want to see him in a TF movie.

Unicron - Not an easy character to portray well in a movie, given his size and origins--could easily end up as a villain du jour like The Fallen.

If an underlying goal of these movies really is to be as real world as possible, then Unicron is nearly auto-disqualified for inclusion. That said, I don't want to see Unicron.
Also, amen to the 'nobody who's dead' chorus. You can tell me all you want to that Bonecrusher in ROTF is probably a different robot who scanned the same alt mode or talk my ear off about Blackout/Grindor, but how about alieviating any confusion by just not being such a cheap weaver of tales and letting the dead remain dead? See how easy that is?

Also, how about no Bumblebee? If he and Prime are allegedly the main robot characters, take up the challenge of telling the story without one of them. As an exercise in character and story telling, that's not a bad idea.

I couldn't agree more on all the dead remaining dead. It hurts to see Megatron so wasted in ROTF and DOTM though. If they do bring him back, there better be a great explanation, and he better not die in this movie or the next one.

I also don't wanna see the wreckers, they didn't appeal to me at all. Nor did I care for Dino.

I don't wanna see anyone with animal or human alt-modes, unless there's a great explanation. The first movie is still my favorite in terms of realism. No characters with random accents, practical alt. modes, etc. I want that back again.

So many problems would be solved so quickly for me.

It's not like it will ever happen, though.
