    I made this because the movie obviously is going to center around the war between the autobots and decepticons, i.e. fighting and we know that they have weapons (obviously) and we know some of the weapons for some of the transformers, some good, some bad. Like Optimus Prime and Megatron, there the leaders so they have cannons and other people like Ironhide and Bumblebee's weapons suite them. But some people like Barricade, who i think has Numchucks only 10 times larger I mean wtf! Whats that all about and Jazz has a shield and sword?! I don't even know what bonecrusher has. What do you think?

    Barricade and Bonecrusher more into close ranged combat, given with weapons like claws ans spinning blades, which I like.

    I think it will be good that some will be ranged fighters and some will be close-combat. My question is when they are in alt mode will they use Earth weapons and when they are in 'bot form use their "alien" weapons?

    I'm just happy to see some variety in their weapons. Personally I think the weapons fit the characters fine.

    you mean like: policecar mode barricade pulling out from his window a rifle of some sort and start to bust our @sses?

    so after that he turns to robot and use his nunchuks-style-spinning-blades-of-doom?

    OR

    use his huge hands to spank the hell outta shia's butt until he reveals where the allspark is?

    that would be so effin' cool!

    then, it's official, it is so effin' cool!

    I mean think about it. Do you guys ACTUALLY want retarded battle scenes like we got in the cartoon where everyone misses everyone? If everyone had awesome bad a$$ long range weaponry, the movie definitely would not be as interesting as if some had to get up close.

    Who gives a rats a$$ if its not like G1!!!!! Give all of them close combat weaponry and let them go to town!

    I think that's the whole point of their designs - in vehicle mode they are in disguise of what we are familiar with, but in robot mode they are in full alien form.

    You know, No offense, but you should really tone down a little on the 'defending the movie to the death' thing, since it makes you look as extreme as people who passionately hate the movie.

    Part of me agrees with you. The other half loves to speak its mind. I come here to get new information about the movie I feel, is my most anticipated movie. BUT, all I get are people that do nothing but cry and moan ... OMG FISHLIPS. If I don't like something, I don't make it a point to EVERYONE the likes it, to bash everything about the thing they like. In real life, people would look at people doing that as immature idiots ... and not stand for it. But in this online forum, it is perfectly okay? If they don't like what they see .... so fing what? Move on with your life. This is a conduit of new information for me ... with $hitballs tainting the flow of new stuff.

    What’s worse, the basher or the basher that bashes the basher?

    Basher. If they just let people talk about the movie in peace, or give nice criticism instead of ... "THAT IS JUST PLAIN HORSE $HIT!" then it would be a much better place. I have no problem with people against the movie. It is the ones that blurt out in that fashion that are the trouble makers. I mean ... really. If you don't like something, can't you say it in a different tone? I am just tired of their crap now.
