Re: Transformers 2 (2009)

while I can't say I loved MB's 'vision', it was good enough to warrant a sequal

Less humans, more machines, more megatron, and of course, more optimus prime, less shia Leboeuf (he's not human).

and under no circumstances, should prime ever say "my bad" ever again.
and by the end, LeBoeuf's character should die, it can be a heroic sacrifice or megatron using him as a baseball , I just don't want him darkening the halls of this franchise again.

Re: Transformers 2 (2009)

This is how the Prime vs Megatron battle should have looked If these CGI creations look this good with just a normal person doing the program, imagine how they would have looked by ILM. Michael Bay is an idiot, the old ones were too blocky, my exhaust port.

"Put that human down, Megatron."
"As you wish, he he heheh."

Re: Transformers 2 (2009)

Thanks for posting that link to that YouTube G1 TF video Optimus Prime.

Your right Prime, about how Mike Bay's TFs came out.

I've seen some of Bay's '07 TF film & all it did was make me yearn for the G1 cartoon which I now view on YouTube.

Shouldn't I call you,........

Re: Transformers 2 (2009)

Here's another little video by the same guys from the previous one. The animated models aren't quite the same caliber as the Prime Vs Megatron fight, but the ending is a funny dig at one of the Bayformers.

Re: Transformers 2 (2009)

These TFs are suppose to be realistic and not cartoonish at all! that was Michael Bay and Spielberg's idea instead of cartoony looking, they wanted to give our changing robots a more organic and more life-like look then their animated counterparts.

The upcoming "G.I. Joe" is going to do the same thing, make the Joes look realistic and not cartoon-like at all. Perhaps "He-Man" coming out in 2011 should be like that or the upcoming "Thundercats" movie in 2010.

Re: Transformers 2 (2009)

Classic Prime would kick bay's Prime's shiney metal ass.

personally when I go to see a movie about giant transforming robots beating each other up, realisim is the last thing on my mind. you can say it's to apeal to a larger audience sorta thing, but that's a load of bs, most of the people who went to see that film were either children who watched the g1 show as children , forgot about and are now grown up and dragged there kids along, or there long time fans who followed the show religiously and now use classic transformers names as usernames .

Cartoonish? Im not sure what you mean here, be it looks or story, ok maybe the cartoon series was pretty much certified for all material, but the actual transformers in that were based on the existing toys of the era, as was G.I joe, so in looks, no not cartoonish at all.

Story possibly if your only thinking of the tv show, if you take the comics thats a big no.

Re: Transformers 2 (2009)

Amen to that DB.

Not to mention the Bayformers look structurally weak compared to the originals. Could the Bayformer bodies be anymore open to every piece of artillery out there? No wonder Jazz and Bumblebee took the death/damage they did in the movie.

Re: Transformers 2 (2009)

Well personally realism is a good thing sometimes! Nolan did it right with Batman making him, his bat-mobile, Scarecrow, Gotham City and Joker all realistic.

Optimus Prime has been through different looks even with "BeastWars" as a Gorilla and now with a fresh new look. Even Megatron looks more scarier, besides Optimus Prime in his cartoon look in live-action would be ridiculous. So that's why the filmmakers decide to make him less cartoony.

Re: Transformers 2 (2009)

for the last time Generation one was not cartoony, it was based off the actual toys. so if anything it's more realistic.

Megatron scarier? seriously? suppose it takes all sorts, though im not convinced, seeing as he was beaten by a human (if you want to call LeBeouf human).

as for batman being realistic, thats not exactly a fair comparision, your placing man in batsuit against giant space robots that transform, batman naturally lends itself towards realisim, giant robots don't.

and prime in cartoon look would be ridiculous? seriously have you seen any of the videos that have been done with the actual original models

ok here's one.

That is cooler than any fight in the movie.

Re: Transformers 2 (2009)

Thanks for that Prowl VS Soundwave & his “Cassetticons” video Optimus Prime. It was really cool.

We seldom saw Frenzy & Buzzsaw on the G1 cartoon, It was good to see them both in that video though.

In the 1986 cartoon TF film, doesn't Soundwave eject Rumble AND Frenzy inside Astrotrain & then they both start using their piledrivers?

I think its the same scene where the constructicons form Devastator inside Astrotrain.

It was all part of some vie for leadership yes?
