    Wrong forum.

    And it's because the people who photograph them don't really know about Transformers.

    in all fairness to REAL photographers, not your joe shmoe with a point-n-shoot. They are not TF fans. Even if they are, they make mistakes. Granted some of those examples are pretty bad. But you need to think of what they are hired for. They are worried about composition, lighting, depth of field, focus, and many other issues. Transformation is the last thing on their mind.

    Now I dont know how companies like Hasbro have thier pictures taken. Whether it is done in house or they contract someone. But who ever uses those pictures, at hasbro, should no better. It is their product. But more than likely they are pee-on people and dont really have full product knowledge, nor care.

    I think the Beast Wars examples are particularly unfair. Look at some of the toys from that line and tell me that their official transformations honestly look less ridiculous. Injector and Quickstrike spring to mind.

    Well, Prime at least looks like he was photographed in the middle of a correct transformation. Kind of the same with Silverbolt. No idea what the guy TFing Razorclaw was thinking.
