    WHOA!!!

    When Dino shoots out his hook-blades to "leash" one of The Dreads while they're chasing Sentinel Prime he TOTALLY slams on the foot-brakes and jams his feet into the road JUST like Fred Flintstone!!!




    Haha!!!

    LOVE IT.

    :D

    Dino was (re-) named thusly for a different reason, but I'm saying that playing off that name may have influenced the decision to have his character slow down one of the The Dreads the way he did because that's pretty much the exact same way Flintstones-era vehicles had their "brakes" applied.

    Hope that clarifies things enough, lol.

    Dude, what?

    You have an over-active imagination with waaaaaaaaaaaay too much spare time on your hands.

    Um...what?

    Do you seriously think I had to mull this over for half-a-year to figure it out?

    Or that it took more than two minutes to put this thread together?

    It was literally my MY VERY FIRST THOUGHT upon watching that scene of the movie.

    I fail to see how this hypothesis is in any way difficult to follow or believe.

    I mean, it's all laid-out right there in front of you.

    Plain as day, man!

    You signed up just to post this sort of stuff? Anyway, I'm not going to argue with you as I would be just as guilty of spamming as you are. So I'm out of here. God I hate the movie forums...

    Seriously. No need to post 10 nonsense topics in 1 day. This is seriously a spamming issue. As if the movie forum didn't have enough of this crap.


    This one makes the least sense. The Ferrari's creator's son died, his name was Dino, and Bay wanted to homage it. It has nitching to do with that stupid dinosaur.

    I signed up because I'm a BIG fan of the Transformers franchise. If I hadn't been born a couple years before the start of the franchise I'd be tempted to say "lifelong fan," but it's still pretty accurate anyway since one of my earliest memories is begging my parents to buy Marvel's "Transformers" #1 for me.

    I'm posting what I'm posting because they're ALL valid observations I've made and are unique contributions to discussions about these movies.

    I have PLENTY to share in the other subforums and threads as well...but I'm starting here. I'll get to the rest at my leisure, thanks.

    And they aren't "spam," btw. If you're going to toss around accusations you should at least have the courtesy and integrity to make sure you know what they mean first.

    Yeah, I believe I already preempted that comment by alluding to my awareness of the name-change's origin in the first sentence of the first post. I never suggested the name-change had ANYTHING to do with "The Flintstones."

    The foot-brakes, though?

    I believe the images in my second post say it all.

    Oh, well, as they say...haters gonna hate.

    :-\

    Highway skating. Nothing to do with that stupid caveman.

    Edit: Not spam? Posting 50 topics in one forum in one day isn't spam?

    Edit X2: You said nothing about the name. The first sentence is "WOAH!!!"

    If anything it's a reference to Bonecrusher.

    Could've SWORN that Dread got slowed-down because of the resistance supplied by Dino's feet against the asphalt...

    And, no, that IS NOT spam. It's just a mere ten separate topics correctly posted in the appropriate subforum in one evening when I finally had the time to post them. Big difference.

    As for your last edit...haha, good one. My bad! Nice to see you CAN be a stickler for using the appropriate words to convey certain meanings when it suits you, at least.

    :p 

    The 'Con or the dog? I remember seeing a collar, but never a leash.

    Um, no. Hatchet slowed because he had two hooks lodged in his jaw.

    Uh, kinda. You could give people a chance to respond to one or two topics a day instead of flooding the movie forum with topics.

    And HOW would an injury to his jaw affect his running speed MORE than dragging several tons of robot applying reverse pressure behind him, exactly?

    Simple physics, man.

    And I don't see ANY rule stating that registered users aren't allowed to post multiple, distinctly separate thread topics over the course of half-a-day. We're talking about TEN unique and fully fleshed-out topics, it's not like I bumped the rest of the board off the first page or just posted completely random subjects, ffs.

    If they were posted too fast for you then simply read them at your own pace as you see fit, grandma. But I had the time to post them TODAY, so I took the opportunity when it presented itself. My posting-schedule should be none of your concern, thanks.

    I appreciate your inclusion of on-topic discussion points, but kindly stop trolling and wannabe-modding my threads, thankyouverymuch.

    You know what? I'm with Transformerswars. I've proven my logic, yet it is denied.

    Let Seth deal with it. (I think he's the movie forum moderator.).

    Quick question, if he wasn't going to skid on the road... what else would he do?! Fly or run?

    "What sort of hideous mausoleum is this?!?" The movie forum.

    Though really, while originally I detested the renaming, I wouldn't mind if Dino was named after Flintstones Dino. I still have a soft spot for that old cartoon.

    So you're saying that when robots try to slow themselves down that automaticly represent the Flintstones?
