    Not bad. I especialy like the Megatron comparison, though I wouldhave used a more recent head design.

    Prime's is a good one too.

    I just don't have any front view of Megatron's head without the "crown" thing.

    All I could find was a quarter render shot.

    Nice research!
    'Evidence' that the designers scoured multiple sources and considered many TF iterations for their source material?
    If they did then it was, in my opinion, the right thing to do since no one single TF series exclusively has "all the good stuff". Every new version has brought something interesting to the mythos and it makes sense to take the best from each one.

    There's something else about Ironhide.

    Ironhide was an elephant in Beast Wars, so was Big Convoy.... and Nemesis Prime....
    Also, Prime was once a black pick-up too.
    so is this why Ironhide now black and has a Prime head?

    Oh man, Jazz looks so fugly. LOL!
    And Ironhide looks like he had a head on collision with both of those pick up trucks. Haha!
    The rest of the comparisons are interesting, but it just reminds me of what they're doing wrong.

    QFT, it's like I've said "G1 started Transformers...But doesn't define it" and with so much variety in Transformers why not take something out of the various revisions. That's how things are kept fresh

    I can't imagine liking Batman/Superman/JLU or TMNT if it simply followed the similar way their older versions were done

    Instead of suffering "oh they make it so wrong and I hate it much",
    I prefer to enjoy how much thought and hints the MOVIE crew had put into the designs.
    The world always looks more beautiful when you know how to appreciate.

    And yes, that is the purpose I started this thread, so please keep things on tangent.

    That's funny, because out of all the movie bots I think Jazz looks the most G1-ish.

    Oh come on. For the Protoforms, yes, and yes, Jazz was based off G1 Jazz. But the rest is REALLY pushing it, especially G2 Decepticon symbol being Megatron's head, and Prime having teeth equating to ugly old man face Prime.

    Plus,G1 not being all Transformers is goes two ways - a couple of these are looking for justification from within G1/G2, but that doesn't automatically make it good as G1/G2 wasn't perfect by a long shot.

    Indeed. I would have preferred if they had put a lot of effort into getting them right and recognisable instead of minor hints that don't make up for lousy art direction.

    It's not "lousy" - You just don't like it. That's fair enough of course, but the distinction is important.

    I already said, this is for people to enjoy not suffer.

    You can always ignore what you dislike, such as this whole thread.
    Please set the flame somewhere else.
