Is this a bad time to point out that in the French broadcast of the G1 cartoon, Starscream was female? :P


In the French dub of The Transformers: The Movie, Starscream (along with Shrapnel) inexplicably became a female. This change, however, was only for the movie, as it used a different dubbing team from the television show. Most likely, the movie's French dubbing team mistook Starscream's rather high-pitched voice for a woman's voice. In the series his portrayed as a man in France, and Quebec Jacques Ferrière and Jean-Louis Millette respectively.

Also there was that Atari-scream indecent in kiss play, but that dosen't really count as it was a man-bot's ghost possessing a young girls body.

Image


And yet when Slipstream first showed up in Transformers Animated, it was made clear that she was the manifestation of his inner femininity. So was the kiss incident a man-bot's ghost in a girl's body or has Starscream all along been a girl bot trapped in a man-bot's body? :P

Stew on that for a bit then hit the convenient panic button located on this site when the predicatble psychological reaction takes place.

Man in a man-bot's body, then in girls, then in a bugs, and then creator of a female clone. The reason starscream has a clone is because there a inner femininity to most people of varying degrees severity, also for every fictional character, there exists an equal but opposite-gender counterpart

1. Optimus is overrated who if (bare with me) in real life couldn't beat Megatron in hand to hand combat because Megatron trained in the gladiator pits and optimus was a librarian.

2. I hated that you couldn't fight autobot character bosses in WFC while playing as Decepticons.

3. I didn't like season 1 of Prime up until the last few episodes.

I don't like TF Prime and I stopped watching during season 2.

Construct bots are awesome.

I like FoC Bruticus. He's pretty good if you use Swindle as an arm instead of Blast Off.

I didn't like War for Cybertron.

DotM was my least favorite of the movies.

I agree, though I switched out brawl instead of swindle. I like how you can fiddle with his turret to make a arm cannon.

Bacon is overrated.

Oh I totally forgot a few.

It's not just the original Marvel comics that are sh*t, it's also the original G1 toys that are terrible, and they shouldn't reissue them at all, it's a waste of materials that could be used to making better more modern representations of those characters.

And again against popular believe, G1 toys in fact do not "hold up" pretty well to today's toys, they have a hard time holding up to 90s toys as is. And they all pale in comparison to even the most basic of Beast Wars toys.

The 80s did not have the best cartoons of all time, the 90s was the time that cartoons (other than the Simpsons) started to introduce little somethings that are called "quality", and "good writing".

Fort Max's sucks, he's so huge, but looks terrible, has very little articulation and is nothing more than a glorified matchbox playset.

Animated Arcee does not fit in perfectly with G1 toys nor does she go well with Classics, if you do think so, you need to get your eyes and brain checked.

Another one like that, G1 Soundwave can be improved upon, he's already been outdone with Cybertron Soundwave, Animated Soundwave, Music Label Soundwave, WFC Soundwave, FOC Soundwave and of course MP Soundwave. He also does not display well with Classics.

Oh and Gundam is damn cool, with a some of the best robot designs ever.

Nope, he made it more well known and famous and brought it into the main-stream movie going public's eye, but he didn't save it. It was doing well on its own, which is precisely the reason why the 2007 movie was made in the first place, Hollywood studios don't spend that kind of cash on something that's essentially dead.

Okay, I'll take a bite of this delicious thread sandwich

1) I hate shippers with a burning passion

2) I like Movie Bumblebee (I just don't like the shelf warmers)

3) Menasor and the Stunticons are overrated

4) G1 is far from perfect

5) I love Animated

6) I don't care about Swerve in MTMTE. He could die in the next issue and I wouldn't even think of shedding a tear

7) I don't like G1 Rodimus Prime

8) Bot Shots are a waste of money and resources

9) I do not like IDW's Robots in Disguise, I strongly prefer MTMTE.

I like what Michael Bay has done with the series.

I didn't like Galvatron and Rodimus Prime.

I felt while season 3 of the original cartoon had some decent episodes a fair majority of them were infinitely lacking in structure and material.

The original movie was good until they killed Optimus Prime and Megatron both.

Prime has done some good with their take on the mythology.

I HATE LEGENDS. I wish they'd bring back the Scout class.

I hate the human villains in Animated.

I like Dark of the Moon. Sentinel was a great villain.

All the fan hype has turned me against Waspinator.

I've always hated Rattrap.

I hate deluxe cars. I'd prefer all TF cars were scout size.

I'll take a G1 Prowl or Wheeljack over their modern counterparts anyday.

Rodimus is cooler than Optimus.

I like the Prime style more then Animated's style though I don't hate the Animated style at all.

I think Beast Wars had too much looney tunes humor that's too distracting and out of place.

Most of the Animated Decepticons with the exceptions of Blackarachnia,Lockdown,Swindle and the Constructicons don't seem all that interesting to me as well as some of them like Starscream and Megatron being too sraightforward with their goals with no other sides to their character despite being entertaining.

I actually like the CGI used in TFP despite the complaints made towards it being too expensive.

I didn't find Starscream to be that pathetic and a joke in Season 2 of Prime to be honest. I get why people do but he was still able to be competant with things like managing to stay alive without a T-Cog along with stealing the Keys from the Autobots and buying his way back to the cons. That and he's one of the few versons of him along with Armada Screamer to have other aspects of his character other then being angry at Megatron and wanting to take over.

Simon Furman needs to stop writing The Transformers comics he has written any good series since G2 #12.

Nick Roche as an artist sucks, the only good issue he's drawn was Spotlight: Megatron.

The Last Stand of the Wreckers is vastly overrated.

The Shadowplay arc in MTMTE sucked.

MTMTE Annual sucked and the RID Annual is bland.

IDW Annuals in general are rip-offs.

James Roberts is a good writer, but he's not great....yet.

Mike Costa's run OK and much better than Furman's work.

Furman's work at IDW has overall sucked.

AHM was better than all of Furman's series combined.

Regeneration One is pointless.

G2 is Furman's greatest US work.

Target: 2006 is Furman's greatest UK and overall work.

RID and MTMTE are both equally great for different reasons and both have had bad spots.

The artwork that Alex Miline did on Drift mini-series is better than his work on MTMTE.

Drift and Windblade are an awesome characters.

Guido is best TF artist of all time!

Geoff Senior is an overrated artist and his art sucks in the orginal Marvel US series, and in color UK stories he did, but artwork and style for the black and white UK stories and in G2 were great and perfectly suited G2.

G2 needs a proper conclusion.
