I'm sure we'll get about 20 posts from 'the usual crowd' defending how great it is that this is so different...

Anyway, feeding it after Midnight turns it into Sky-Byte, Clay. :P

Edit - I'll even be nice. If my betting opponent wants to pull out now (as in today), I'll let him.

1 - No, it would definitely turn into (their version of) Megatron. It's much more horrifying.

2 - Why do you have to bait him like that? You're either stupid or you're looking for trouble.

Finally, as a general aside, I want it clear that I hate these designs not because they're not true to G1, but because they're fugly. That they don't manage to resemble anything ever officially done in Transformers is just another nail.

And that'd be any worse than the 20 posts from "the usual crowd" trashing how bad it is that this is so different, how exactly?

That's what they're apparently doing with Bumblebee. I guess they got their wires crossed on what 80s franchise they were working on.

I was actually eagre to see this until character designs started leaking. Now I'm just hoping they are mocking the fandom by releasing ugly pictures to intentionally rile us, and then have the movie designs be semi-decent.

Don't do that to yourself; you know what's going on here. We all do. And there's no sense getting your hopes up--that way lies a deeper, darker depression.

That's the only reason I can come up for this autrocity as well. I just want to cry. Why don't they just call this movie, "Hong Kong Knock-Off Transformers" and be done with it?!

For what it's worth Auros, that same particular character occurred to me too.

It's almost as disheartening thus far as those three G1 novels were, but I'll still see it- rental or maybe in the theatre on the off-chance it's not going to be so bad. After that - I'll complain properly.

Why would I?

Even if the fan demographic was enough to make or break this film, I've no doubt that every single person who claims that they're going to boycott it is going to see it anyway, if only to find something more to bitch about.

However, since this movie is meant to appeal to a broader audience (such as people who have a vague recollection of the franchise in some form, or even action fans in general), I hardly think that fan reaction is going to be any sort of gauge as to how well it does.

The opportunity to back out is much appreciated, though.

Well, I'm not taking part in a boycott, nor am I calling for one. I'm just not inclined to see it.

And, honestly, I'm not taking this from a perspective of a 'fan purist'.. it just really looks like grade C crap from an action/adventure fan in general.

*shrug*

The fact that the robots look so pathetic does not help.

Whatever you do don't take Bumblebee to the Carwash

Interestingly Prime seems to have been spared the face altering to some extent.

Will judge film on its merits but am not going to hold my breath

Its just like if they'd started filming superman and decided to cast Clark Kent as a 4ft 4 inuit Women and give his Alter Ego a green and yellow costume.

Bit of car mode footage: http://media.putfile.com/Trans-65

Ganked from a new member at TFW. Nothing particularly interesting.

So I guess the Autobots in car mode on jet skis is nixed?

Bummer.

Better hope Megatron's ship doesn't land in the ocean like in the cartoon. Cos the 'bots will be outnumbered very quickly.

But then again, who cares? They're just a bunch of exposed pipes. This movie doesn't really excite me but I will still go see it. It's Transformers!
