    Right, as i was browsing the interweb earlier i came across this pic fomr the terminator ride at universal, the pic is of the t-70 an early verision of the terminator, but something struck me as familiar,

    so familiar that it put me in mind of a certain flying transforming robot that will appear in a certain movie later this year.

    take a look and see what you think, but it is pretty similar

    heh, thanks i guess. yeah, i see a vague resemblance, but to be honest, more to the older feel than the movie feel.

    That actually freaked me out. And it does look alot like Starscream, especially the head and arm cannon. And is it a joke that it was an early Terminator?

    I can see some similarities, but not enough to call it a 'rip-off'.

    No...not really close at all. The head shape is similar but that's it. Movie SS doesn't even have the same proportions or anything. Other than the head, which also looks like waspinator, these don't look alike at all.
