Hope it doesn't turn out cheesy-ass.


There's a difference? sorry if this comes off smartass-ish but i'm serious. Prime looks the same in all 3 movies to me so what is different between 2 and 3? I imagine it'd be minor things but i am curious. lol

Since all of the above are dead (or MIA, in Ravage's case) and haven't yet been given any canonical reason for their suddenly being alive, I'd say this ride is OOC with the movies and the accompanying fiction.

I can still enjoy it knowing it's its own entity. ;)

Is it me or is the animation not as good as in the movies? :-?

Should be just as good since ILM worked on the ride too.

^ This

Deserves some explanation. Like tons of shards of the alspark suddenly reviving them all. And Sideways Escaping for TF4. He is awesome, he needs his own movie.

Ahem.

But maybe this will just be kind of a "Happening inside ROTF" thing?

Makes sense this does not. MMMmm!

They also forgot to mention that Ironhide and Ratchet are apart of the ride. They may not be in the actual ride, but they give the tactics and information you need during the pre-show to understand the ride.

Not to mention, the most important Transformer: Evac.

How is he awesome? He's a coward who doesn't like fighting, he hides behind larger Decepticons as though they were his security blanket, and is an expert at doing this:


He's no RiD/Armada/RobotMasters/Cybertron/Animated Sideways. ;)

I hope there's some actual cool stuff, like animatronic TFs and stuff. Pretty lame if it's all just 3D glasses and screens...

I dunno how good animatronic bots would look. And with the complexity of the movie bot designs, ones that look that good would be pretty pricey to make. ;)

The Disney Imagineers don't seem to have a problem making awesome realistic animatronic designs. They have very convincing Droids at Star Tours, and I had imagined this ride to be a lot like Indiana Jones Adventure or the Dinosaur ride at Walt Dinsey World, where an actual life-sized animatronic dinosaur roars in your face. Obviously TFs are more complex than that but I thought since this is already a multi-million dollar project they could throw in an actual physical TF or two... imagine how cool it would be to see Prime in the 'flesh'? They'd probably do it with Evac since he's the mascot, but man, I would have loved to have seen that, even in the queue or at the end of the ride. As cool as modern 3D can be, nothing compares to seeing something actually there in front of you.

The large Bumblebee outside above the ride's entrance could be animatronic. ;)
