:roll: Agreed, and I take no pleasure in saying this but I think we're rapidly approaching a singularity where it will be adversarial between Transformer fans born before 1990 and fans born after 1990 going at each other on subjects like this (give or take 5 years in that window). I know that sounds a little out there but every new iteration of the brand that comes out lateley results in Generation 1 dying a little bit more. And the people that should be saying something about it are staying quite as the money rolls in (attention Peter Cullen for example). I don't know...I'm sure many of you twenty somethings out there will no doubt blow this off as the mindless ramblings of an old "Geewunner" but as I've said before and will continue to say, you dang kids wouldn't have your Bayformers or your Animated or your PRIME if it wasn't for the cliche' 80's silliness of Generation 1. I had two negative experiences this week with this hobby that I'm SO passionate about...
-The TF:Prime cliffhanger finale...Unicron clones on earth made of stone....uh yeah, the writers were "stoned" all right.
-And just today when I purchased one of those DOTM mech tech Human Alliance DragStrip figures...the human race car driver (clearly based on Augy from a classic G1 episode) is transluscent and is clearly intended to be a hologram pilot, is described as an actual human counterpart on the cardback...a Decepticon openly welcoming a human counterpart??? Megatron bowing to the Fallen....Devastator with testicles...You kids today wouldn't recognize Megatron even if you bumped into his fusion canon! To quote Mugatu in Zoolander "I feel like I'm taking crazy pills!!!"
:BANG_HEAD:
VECTOR SIGMA! :sad:

its good to see cliffjumper get his own unique mold for once, to bad it sucks. Take the worst robot aspects from animated and bayformers mix em together and you have TF:Prime.

Well then again if no one liked the 2007 movie, hasbro would probably shut down the Tf brand, and you wont get your classics 2.0 and 3.0. I dont see your point. Things have to evolve for people to continue to buy them, and continue their interest in them. You wouldn't want to using a phone the size of a brick too right? Similarly for Tfs, they has to break free of the G1 era. Tf evolved. Thats when you have BW, RID, Unicron trilogy, and Movie-verse. Like it or not, tfs would continue to change, like everything else in the world.

TFs are now primarily targeted at kids, that's why its gimmick-heavy. If you don't like a particular series, don't buy it. But you would be missing out on the making of history for TFs. Yeah, some series were great, others were really bad, but TFs would keep evolving in order for them to stay alive ;)

I agree with what your saying in theory, yes the brand does need to adapt with changing times but for Primus sake, do you really think that this task has been executed to the best of it's potential in the past decade???? The spirit of G1, the honor of Optimus morals, the vulnerability of Bumblebee, Megatrons supreme arrogance, Galvatrons bat-sh*& crazy antics after the death of Unicron...for example ten minutes into ROTF Optimus Prime executes an unarmed opponent at point blank range that has been rendered inoperative for all intents and purposes just because of the potential treat....call me naive but the Optimus Prime I grew up with NEVER would have done that. And that recognition of the importance of life, even enemy life is the essence and magic of the original franchise. Now its all, action, special effects and sex appeal (with a hefty dose of bad writing). I don't wanna raise my kids with any of the current versions out there, and yes I know its a childrens contemporary market....all the more reason to stay true to the original. At the risk of repeating myself again, I'll sum up by saying it kills me that we live in a day and age for the potential of such an epic G1 re-boot and it seems like NO ONE is stepping up to the challenge. :/
I know this has sounded negative, I'm just venting LOL

oh .... holy .... holy sh*t..

Cliffjumpers Vehicle mode looks amazing.
That headsculpt is amazing..
Robot mode and (whats apparent) of the transformation looks great..
and the hand swapping for the cannons is such a nice looking gimic ...

I'll be buying the regular AND the zombie version. :grin:


...... Oh .... and bumblebee looks great too ... but Im not really so stoked about the figure because its just a cartoony version of movie verse-bee... I'll buy the NYCC two pack and the regular one.

Hasbro would do anything to earn money, and the over-dramatic action sequences from the live-action movie allowed DOTM to be the 6th(?) top grossing movie of all time. Plus it allowed them to sell tons of DOTM figs. With all that, i doubt we can expect a G1 reboot soon. Take Prime as a G1 reboot. It could be possible, if you look at it with an open mind. IMO its the best TF cartoon since G1 ;)

@ Gavinfuzzy....agreed. I wish we had "like" buttons on here like with facebook. LOL All I'll say is it's scary to me that the number one movie of all time is DOTM. Talk about holding a mirror up to society (I'm not sure where it's actual global ranking in as of today, but I know it's done gangbusters). I'll be raising my kids on G1 cartoons for the forseeable future but when they get old enough to wander on their own we'll openly discuss the other options out there :P Hahahaha And as for the potential for a G1 reboot being unlikley...all I'll say is there are plenty of people like me out there and also our generation is gradually coming into power in the entertainment industry...I predict WE WILL see a G1 reboot but it's still gonna be a decade or so away. I just hope I live long enough to see it. I mean look at the batman franchise for example...in my opinion it took 4 movies before Batman Begins captured a true modern take on Bob Kanes original Batman (uh oh, whay do I suspect that I just opened a "fanboy" can of worms with that one). LOL

@ HAL7300_
No worries, the HAL series computers have always been perplexed by human behavior...it's not your fault, now be a good computer and go open the pod bay doors. :D

One of my all time favorite cinema characters! :lol:

What no one seems to get is that there is no reason to polarize and fight amongst ourselves.

If you love G1, support it.
If you love the Bayverse, support it.

How hard is it to love what you have, extoll it's virtues and not offend someone? You'd be amazed at what could and would be accomplished if we did just that.

You're exactly the type I'm talking about. This post of your's mocks what I have to say, with no respect given. This is sarcasm and you know it.

Other questionable posts of your's:

I "get" the joke, but Hal may take offense to it, because your smiley face is basically you laughing plus the overall condescending tone of your post.

G1 Legacy wrote:@ philtron3030....LOL, cool I'll mail you all the ones in my area. LOL


Or in other words: "DURR HURR I DUN LIKE 'EM. YUS KIN HAV 'EM DERPINGTON!"

Can't have a reasonable or civil conversation when you act like that. Love it, hate it, who cares? Bayverse has revitalized the entire franchise, opened new doors, brought in new generations of fans and made more money in the last four years than has been made in most, if not all of TF history. That's all they care about and will continue to care about.

Learn this now, so you're not surprised and disappointed later.

No punches here. I've only jokingly replied to comments that were replies to me based on my original reply to Rated-X. Again I've only replied to others for the sake of conversation. If it came across as passive aggressive I apologize to those who percieved it that way. As with texting it's easy to misinterpret one's tone in blogs sometimes and I know I come across as sarcastic. It's my idiom...I'll fall on my sword and apologize to Autobot032, but we're in a public forum here...I know I come across as an a$$ to some and witty to others but I've just been applying some playful humor, no condescension was intended...seriously. I'm giving these figures a thumbs down for my reasons stated above because thats just my opinion, all else was just sarcastic playful replies to others. I'll consider myself schooled on Seibertron blog etiquette. I think we all have bigger fish to fry.
