    If any of your are as strongly opposed to Optimus Prime being covered in flames in the new movie as I am... please help the cause by signing the "Keep Your Flames Away From My Optimus Prime" online petition. We are already almost 4,000 signatures strong, so if you feel the same about keeping our Autobots hero and champion flame-free... help our voice be heard!!

    Thanks!!

    Well, at least this one is in the right forum (if there is a right forum for this nonsense).

    Bunch of other fake ones too- nobody takes this kinda crap seriously, and rightly so.

    Online petitions dont mean jack shit look at Spider-man the movie. There must have been several petitions that brought up a grievance with the organic webbing issue I wouldn't doubt all of the major petions had 20k sigs each and even a popular website named no-organic-webbing.com(or something similar) What did Raimi do? He kept the organic webbing anyways.

    If i see one more thread about this petition I am gonna start a counter petition out of spite calling for more flames and guns on prime.

    we need more flames. hell, prime should always be on fire too. and he'll shoot flames out of his eyes. and his kneecaps. and fingertips. MORE FLAMES. MORE! MORE!!!

    in all seriousness, I suggest the link to the petition be put into the word filter.

    Actually this thread was originally in N&R but was moved here.

    Talk about :horse:  :horse: 

    Odd thing I've noticed is that 2005's the only one of the major boards being inundated like this :( 

    I think online petitions are just a way for people to vent.And honestly I'd rather someone vent in a meaningless online petition rather then post those same things here on the board as it'll drrag the board down.I mean I've read a few of the comments,they're VERY reminicent of how some of our newer members are posting:redface2: 

    One signer even says "This movie should be g1 and Megatron should be a gun":horse: 

    I mean yeesh filming's already started.It's too late to change things now.And even if it wasn't the comments that people leave in these petitions will hardly be taken seriously

    Actually, no, he posted two threads; the N&R one got moved, but not to here. Its most likely pending deletion.

    The stuff I miss while watching TV :lol 

    Ugh,if you guys think it's bad now just wait till Independance Day '07. I'd expect a new thread every 10 mins complaining about the movie in some way :p 

    And I TRULY pitty the Hasbro reps,I wonder how many people will inundate them with their "concerns"

    Which is a shame since Archer's a nice guy and he remembered me last year from 2003 :D

    No, I agree. Optimus shouldn't be covered in flames.















    He should be covered in skulls. That would be kewl.

    The complains make even less sense now that we've seen Prime's robot mode. Those flames are needed in order for the right colors to end up mostly on the right parts of the robot. Take away the flames to "fix" the truck, and you screw up the robot.

    There were two threads... This one and one in the N&R... I deleted the the N&R because it was neither news or rumors... This one is up to RHansen to take care of if he wants to...

    No the petition.

    I made a few pro-flame posts. They removed them.

    I'm going to read that as meaning...IN BEFORE LOCK!

    Anyway, as far as screwing up the robot, I've would've prefered an all primary red robot to the weird mash of blue and orangeish shades.
