As the title says, what is the movieverse lacking? For me, it's not the bot designs, tho I wish Megs and Starscream were more recognizeable(sp). Action scenes are awesome, if a bit short and one sided. The stories are fine, Transformers story was always a battle over energy of some sort so thats fine. For me, it's the characters. Only Prime, Bumblebee and Ironhide have any depth. The cons (and Autobots for that matter) shared very little banter between themselves, save for the Twins and Megatron and Starscream. Even then, the cons personalities were lame. Megatron was decently handled (even though I can't see Megs taking orders from anyone, if anything, his partnering with the Fallen should have been an uneasy alliance), but they turned Starscream into Igor... He doesn't boss the other cons around, never back talks Megatron, and in ROTF, he didn't do any decent fighting in bot mode or plane mode. Sideswipe, no character. Arcee, nothing. No other Cons even said anything. The GI Joe movie had lots of flaws, but all its characters had some personality. Michael Bay, I'm not asking you to turn TF3 into some sort of character piece, but please give more banter from the bots, AND FOR THE LOVE OF PRIMUS, don't eff up Starscream!!! Why did the game do Starscream better than the movie!? As much as I liked the Twins, give them the background, and lets give other bots more lines and personal banter. That's what I liked about the Twins... they seemed alive. Skids got emotional when he thought Mudflap was gonna die, and even got vengeful when Mudflap busted loose.
