When transformers was rebooted in 2007, one complaint was the designs of the transformers. People wanted them to look like their g1 selves. Yeah while some characters share traits with their g1 characters, others do not. I think the main corporate is any one that isn't Optimus or Jazz; Maybe Megatron. Now do I want the transformers to look like their g1 counterparts? Yes and no. Yes because if your name is "Starscream" I expect you to look like the red and blue traitor from the orignal cartoon. No because I don't want the characters g1 designs going around a modern day city. The bumblebee movie is doing a great job with recapturing the characters. Soundwave looks like soundwave! Shockwave looks like shockwave! It's like the movie we asked for 11 years ago! Do I hate the bayverse designs? Again yes and no. As I listed above if you share the name with the character; I expect you to be the character. Most of the bayverse characters share no traits with their original characters. Expically Wheeljack. But the bayverse designs look really cool! But it's sad to see a design like sideswipe go to waste. I don't care what their vichele is; just make them look like the characters they share the name with! Only a handful act like their g1 selves. I have a solution how about if the characters were a clash between cartoon and realistic? I think this would work perfectly for many reasons! The characters would look like themselves and won't feel wired in a real environment! I wanna see a movie Sideswipe that's red and looks like sideswipe! He does not have to be a Lamborghini! Also Wheeljack, The Combaticons, especially a character like Astrotrain!
