    ...did the pharoahs mimic the fallens head?


    just a fun topic i guess, i personally feel the egyptians would have copied the fallen and not the other way around

    My guess would be that if he presented himself to people of early Egypt as the leader of Cybertron then the humans were the one's who followed the idea of let's have our rulers wear something like that.

    Can't be any worse than everything in the modern world is derived from Megatron because the whole human race is too thick to invent anything on their own.

    Seeing as The Fallen probably arrived at the beginning of Egyptian culture as we know it, I think the humans have mimicked The Fallen's design instead of the other way around. :)

    Which would be interesting given that Megatron had an equally significant impact on human culture since most of technology in the film is reverse-engineered from him. If Transformers have had that much of an impact on human culture, it gives a whole new meaning to "hiding in plain sight"

    I guess the second.

    Or the first if The Fallen is truly a dick.

    They would have modeled the nemes on the Fallen, just as Megatron chose the Fallen's face as the Decepticon symbol.

    Well, in Megatron's case, it definitely improved our mobility, technology and spacefaring skills, but seeing as at that point humans had already developed strong cultures of their own it's more of a behind-the-scenes influence.

    In the case of The Fallen, if he really was at the birth of Egyptian Civilization, and those people didn't have acces to his body to study, all that remains is mimick his ways and his looks in a period that they didn't really have an identity of themselves.

    Maybe they did influence more cultures, but it won't really help them blend in with humanity as we know it today. :p

    Because it's cool to be an internet-rebel!!!

    What other cultures would be interesting as Transformers-influenced societies? I hope they won't go a Stargate route and show practically every human culture is influenced, but there could be more influences than Egypt and modern technology..

    I don't think that The Fallen will be influencing human civilization too much. Zahi Hawass, the head of Egyptian antiquities, is a big opponent to the concept of the "ancient astronaut" having anything to do with the construction of the pyramids. And since Dr. Hawass let Bay and co. film on his pyramids, it stands to reason that the credit still goes to the ancient Egyptians

    "Internet rebel"? Please. If I wanted to rebel something I doubt a couple of douches on a toys board would be high on my list :D 

    it's not rebellion, it's just mild irritation :p
