I’m getting kind of annoyed by all the flaming and ranting I hear about the upcoming movie. Right now, most of what we have are some concept pictures, prototypes, and rumors; so what are we complaining about? We have only a few facts to work on. This is at least the 8th version of the Transformers we have (G1, BW, BM, RiD, Armada, Energon, and Cybertron. Not including the comic book versions and any series not released here in the states), I think we should expect a different version of the bots. In just those 7 series I mentioned, how many different forms of Megatron did we have? Can you honestly tell me you liked every single one of them? At least the leaked picture of Movie Megatron had a similar cowl (in battle mode) as G1 Megatron. The Megatron images aren’t the only ones getting flamed. From the images found here we have a look at the prototype images and toys from the movies. The first two are of ‘Incinerator’ and we see the movie version and toy version. Now the movie transformations look like they will be complex so I’m not surprised that the toy looks a little simplified, but still looks close. I saw someone say the transformation looked simple in the toy, but I offer Cybertron Optimus Prime as an example of easy transformation, just a hand full of moves and he goes from truck to robot. I’d also recommend looking at some of the old G1 toys, those transformations were simple when compared to those of the Alternators. Although I am a little worried about the other toys, these prototypes leave me confident in the design team. The Starscream prototype is getting some heat too. I agree that I’d like to see the typical Starscream head that we’ve seen all along. I only have this to offer, these are prototypes, hopefully the head will change. (On an off note, didn’t Starscream’s spark inhabit Waspinator’s body in BW?) Prime is catching some flak for the Flames. Now I have my opinion, but so do all of you. We have had a Prime with flames in the past, or at least a toy, so it is in Transformers’ history. I would suggest that all those against the flames, buy the toy when it comes out and kitbash it to the paint job you want. As for Exploding transformation versus Articulate transformation, I lean towards articulation, but again this is just a rumor. Once we have something concrete, then we should rant about it, but until then, know it is just a rumor. With all this said, how can we complain about the movie any more then the next cartoon version that comes along? I didn’t visit this sight much when Cybertron came out, so if this is what normally happens when a new version comes out, then I hope I’m not boring you all. All the ranting is being done on rumors that have not been confirmed and a few leaked prototype images. Please wait till we have more details before you run off and claim Michael Bay raped your childhood. I bet we will have a movie that will fit nicely next to the original movie and with the same critical acclaim.
