    Seriously, you got to love how complex and great the cgi is. I couldn't stop drooling over the designs and all the complex folding into a robot.

    Here's a great example:

    Dreads on the highway

    Megatron in Africa

    Laserbeak in action

    "Pissed" Optimus Prime

    Just as a heads up, you may want to take down that video. We're not supposed to post bootlegged footage. Wouldnt want you to get banned.

    On Topic: I do enjoy the designs. They are quite amazing. I only wish that we had figures that could more accurately depict the onscreen transformations. ;D

    Look at the post with the video. Click, "edit". From there you should be able to delete the link to the video, thus removing it. Click "save changes", and you should be good to go. :)

    I still get blown away by Optimus' first transformation.

    I like the way Mirage did a cartwheel when he transformed :)

    Of course we all love the CGI in the films. I always appreciate that kind of stuff, much more than the average joe. I know all about the work and artistry involved in pulling that off.

    the point of this appreciation thread is to "appreciate" it again ok

    Like, we all know how Bumblebee's car mode looks great, but there is still an appreciation thread to pay it respect

    Optimus has had some pretty epic transformations. There's the final battle if TF1, the opening in Shanghai in ROTF... Plus the Driller in DOTM was some really impressive CGI work.

    I love how transformation is actually worth showing off in these movies. Other series tend to just rush past it, which always struck me as odd since transformation is a key feature of the toys they're advertising.

    I really loved Ironhide's transformation when he's first on the scene in ROTF, and the fog from his breath and nostrils is a nice touch.

    I also like to ass, the scene in DOTM when Prime and company first show up in Chicago, I love how you even see their shadows behind them on the buildings. Another nice little detail add on!
