    I dunno. But until you hear it from Don or Michael, just go about your life thinking that no news about the movie is credible. even if the rumors turn out to be right, you'll be far better off having ignored the other 244,678 rumors that we'll get before the movie hits.

    Anyone have the insight to elaborate on exactly what this guy means by Biomechanical? As in there's living cell-based tissue deep inside each Transformer? So instead of Terminator, we have General Grevious from Star Wars?

    I'm not sure who's credible, and who's not, but Transformers are, have always been, and always will be ROBOTS in disguise.

    hehe... cyborgs in disguise..... I think not.


    *edit* Please note, I was not counting Beast Machines "Beast Changer" (Noble/Savage) in with that, considering he was completely organic.

    The movie will end with cybertron being reformatted into a green forest.

    Hmm.

    If they're thinking of going "biomechanical", then how can early designs "look fucking incredible!"? That's like saying, "The movie is going to suck. But our insider says it looks fucking awesome!"

    I get what he's saying. I guess it just confuses me.

    Meatformers make Primus cry. There are a few things they could do to kill all my interest in this movie. Organic TFs are one of those things.

    Spike could be biomechanical but the robots themselves? EEk.
    I was thinking along the lines of beast wars...but naw....even they were robotic just with animal like surfaces

    I'm not trying to think too hard about this rumor, because there's probably no truth to it, but I don't see how giving Transformers an organic side would make them any more believable. I think with movies like The Matrix, audiences have more than come to terms with the notion of machines that are self-aware and have emotions.

    OK... I'm sorry I joked about the movie TFs being designed by H R Giger in another thread! :) 

    I doubt this rumor is true. Only thing I can figure is a writer thought "living robots" needed organic matter in 'em somewhere, sort of like how the Go-Bots had organic brains in the old Hanna-Barbera cartoon (I heard).

    I think everyone's overreacting. They'll probably just LOOK biomechanic in the same sense that Gundams look like humans. In other words they'll look like the IDW bots, but smoother depending on the character.

    And if it's not like that, then it's probably that the 'Sparks' are lifeforms of their own. You know, like in Armada, where it was said that the Transformers only have robotic bodies to protect their true selves?

    precisely

    not to mention the world has kept spinning 20+ years with Transformers being sentient ROBOTS, not cyborgs

    sounds like a bunk rumor to me

    Didn't you see the press release saying the movie will center around Botanica?

    Honestly, "biomechanical" could mean "mechanisms that resemble organisms! Like humans!"

    I think this is fake. Biomechanicals TFs is not a good idea and the producers now that if they do that the fans won't spend money at all, at least I wouldn't do it.
    But the guy who wrote the article said that fans wil hate than concept but I do remember hating the BM concept and I get use to it so who knows?

    And once again: are you really mad if the original G1 actors don't put their voices for the movie?

    To be completely honest I have no intention of spending one red cent on this movie due to the way the fandom as a whole has been treated in the past by certain people attached to this film.

    No no no. We have enough damn threads about that argument without you bringing it up again here.

    I can see the idea of biomechanical TFs being brought up at some point during the writing stage. Hopefully, though, it's not an idea that will make the final cut. I wouldn't freak out and boycott the movie if they did it, but I would just as soon leave the Transformers as wholly mechanical beings (unless we're talking Headmasters).
