    Most of you people dont seem to understand this. No series has been exactly the same since G1. Why should it be? New series, new characters, new everything. Stop complaining about how "Optimus wasnt like this" or "Soundwave doesnt have a mouth". If you wanna watch something that keeps to G1, WATCH G1! Its the perfect series for you guys.

    Thank you, and rant over.

    Dude, you don't have to start a new thread just to make your point. If you feel that strongly about it put it in you signature. The more posts that you make the more people will see your opinion.

    What's your stance on Godzilla in Name Only? Do you get enraged when people complain how it barely resembles Godzilla?

    And how would characters being more recognizable harm the movies? Would Soundwave being blue with a faceplate have ruined your day? No one else would stand up and walk out of the theater if Optimus Prime didn't have flames or a face.

    No one's advocating for a straight-up G1 cartoon rehash(I'm a comic guy myself). Ironhide makes a better pick-up than a van. Prime as a Peterbilt is great. Bumblebee, however, could've been a sporty compact. Megatron should've been the tank Brawl was. Ratchet could've still been a white ambulance. I've never seen a yellow one in person. Heck, Ratchet could've been the humans' guardian. He's filled that role twice before.

    Why does anything resembling Transformers pre-movie have to be a poison pill for the movies themselves? Mystique was still a blue redhead shape-shifter in the X-Men movies. Batman still dresses like a bat and hangs around in a cave in every movie he's in. Tony Stark is still a self-destructive billionaire in Iron Man 1 and 2. Why can't Optimus Prime hold himself to a moral high-ground and kill reluctantly in these films?

    Like the site needs more indisputable "fact" spamming.

    To snark or not to snark, that is the question we are faced with here today....

    Mr poster, you are delusional if you think people are not going to compare various forms of media with in a franchise.. You might as well ask for our govt. not to bow to oil companies or Jim Ross to not tweet!

    As much as I hate to say it... Again.. never forget if it were not for this G1 you so do not want to hear about we would not have said movies... The movies are there for EVERYONE young and old, not just teenagers. Folks are going to analyze things against what they know best, no matter the generation, no matter how much someone whines about it.. That is human nature.

    Whoa... whoa... WHOA!!!

    Wait a minute- the movies aren't G1?

    I mean... when saying how the movieverse caracters are only nameslaps These fanboys keep telling me how G1 the movies are: Prime is a truck (even has his trailer), Ironhide is a weaons' specialist, Ratchet is a medic, Bumble is Sam'd friend- AND IS YELLOW!!!- Jazz has his visor, Starscream is a Jet, and movieverse Megatron looks exactly like his G1 counterpart: they both have a line that goes from *there* to *there*. Ravage! Shockwave!! The Ark!!!

    Megatron and Starscream. Megatron in Lincon's chair. Jetfire!!! Soundwave and Lazerbeak!!!

    W can't even have a reboot because Ratbat needs to be in TF4- just like the G1 comics!

    I keep being told that these are G1 incarnate... now the movies are back to NOT being G1 agin?

    Aren't G1... are G1... not G1... man, I really do wish these movieverse fanboys would develope some kind of concensus, because this is getting really confusing to us haters.

    This dude came to post this like 4 years too late...

    It has been said over and over again, that the movie is not G1. It is inspired by the G1 cartoon and draws from its comics, but its not a big-screen adaptation of G1.

    Its just another interpretation of the Transformers mythology.

    Definitely agree with you, especially about the Godzilla thing. God, the American remake sucked.

    yes, the movies were not G1 but that does not mean that they should be enjoyed. i very much enjoyed all of them, especially DOTM. this is pretty much the same as the family guy controversy. if you can't watch it without complaining, then don't watch. i can understand complaining about 1 thing, but for primus' sake, don't complain about the whole movie!

    But the american cartoon for Godzilla was AWESOME!! Did any one watch that? I was a huge fan of that animation company, Extreme Ghostbusters and Men and Black were all amazing.

    Indeed, the movie is not G1. And it is not excellent, either.

    I did, and loved it. Hell, I love all the cartoons you named.

    I support the idea that people need to understand that the Movieverse is it's own continuity and not fully/needs to be based on G1, but damn this thread is unnessesary and will just stur up the drama again. :sly:
