Do Prime's have certain "crotch" pieces for a reason?

    This is in NO way a joke, spam, trolling, or any crap like that.

    Now are their crotch peices shaped like that for a reason?
    How come Optimus' is flat, but Sentinel's is pointy.
    I was expecting them to be alike, but obviously they are not.

    I think Sentinel's crotch peice shows his character appearance well, Sentinel is a "pointy" robot if you look at him carefully, and Optimus is more flat, if that makes sense.

    So was it designed like that on purpose, or just coincident?

    AGAIN, this is NOT a joke, I actually find this an interesting topic.

    The only thing the Prime descendants seem to have in common is the helmet.

    This seems like a weird thing to discuss seeing as how almost every other aspect of their design is also different.

    Why do you poitn out the crotches and not, say, the shoulders which have the exact same difference? (Ops are square, Sentinel's are pointy) Or their chest windows, or their forearms, or knee pads. All of these aspects carry the same aesthetics. Sentinel is pointy and Optimus is square.

    Pretty much, yeah - his legs essentially attach to separate pieces that come down from his torso, rather than a unified pelvis.

    You might as well close down the entire forum.
    This thread however reminded me of ROTF Megatron's obvious crotch peice.
    I don't see however how this topic is meant to be taken seriously.

    Sentinel is more pointy than Optimus' design in general. His... codpiece is just one more place.

    Jesus Christ what possessed you to create this thread?

    I'd totally be in support of closing the movie forums...if it wasn't for the fear that this kind of shit would bleed out into GD.

    We already had a containment breach from the Prime forums that got ugly really fast, I'm not to keen on repeating that incident with the movie stuff.
