    Why? Just watch the original one. The 80's film was a continuation of the show, out of context it'd be stupid and confusing.

    Agreed.

    I'm also sure that people wouldn't like it if the first film in a planned live action franchise killed off its star player 20 minutes into the movie. Cause it worked so well in the 80's. LOL

    Not really. I knew there were massive differences between the two mediums, and was hoping the storytelling would have advanced from where it was 20 years before.

    No. I figured the mOvie was going to be in a new direction. I just never expected it to go in such a lousy direction.

    As much as I would love to see the 1986 movie redone one day using high quality CGI while keeping the same audio, I wasn't expecting or hoping for the first live-action movie to be a remake or whatever of the G1 movie.
    Maybe something taking bit of the MTMTE opener, but beyond that, no.

    No. I think they tried to use some of the original G1 designs (I.E. Cab-over chest prime) early on, but CGI tests showed they couldn't convincingly pull those off in a live action setting, and Prime wouldn't have been as tall either.

    Plus, toy wise, it wouldn't have been viable. A live-action version of the G1 movie would require a Gun form Megatron, which wouldn't have passed toy safety laws due to it potentially looking like an actual GUN. Even the RTS Legends Megatron, a gun that can't possibly be real, still needed an orange cap (actually, the barrel itself is orange, but it's mostly painted over).

    My hopes were on something like Spider Man, Iron Man, or Batman. A movie where you get enough of the old familiar that it reminds you of the past and you can instantly tell who everyone is, but at the same time pushing what you can do visually in live action vs a comic book or cartoon series.

    Kind of that take what people know and then expand upon it. Like how the Joker had all the familiar elements of green hair, pimp suits, and clown make up, but then they added elements like the scars and cranking his insanity up to 11.

    So no I wasn't expecting something exactly 100% G1. However I was expecting something that was more fan friendly instead of get lost old fans these movies are only for new fans.

    Hell no. The '86 has to be one of the worst movies of all time.
