    Because the arrogance of Grimlock is thinking he can thrash Optimus Prime... and not the other way around. :D

    While a clever Godzilla reference, what was the point of making a thread for this?

    Love the reference, don't get the notion of the thread.

    But very nice reference, I think you deserve something here today, my good sir.

    Thank you for the cookie.

    There was a thread sometime back discussing what Hound (John Goodman) would be like. Responses ranged from Fred Flintstone to Walter Sobchak to Sully. I think Drift (Ken Watanabe) will be like Dr Serizawa (Godzilla), perhaps knowing about the Dibobots all along leading the Autobots to them for a new army. And he may also be like Katusomoto the Samurai, but I liked the Godzilla thing better.

    Of course, it's a bit silly to predict a character on the roles that character's actor has portrayed though, but Drift makes it easy to do so.

    And now Optimus has enough fuel to take the face of every Decepticon in the galaxy, without even having to leave Earth.


    But seriously, I love how you just have stock photos of Oreos ready :lol

    Ahh, I do see your perspective. I would love to see some of these voice actors say under the label of their Transformers characters iconic lines they have said over their career. Hound saying Mark It Zero seems highly unlikely, but it would still be an awesome way to incorporate it in.

    I agree there with your idea that Drift would be very sophisticated, and I do hope that your idea of Drift will play into the movie.

    Drift is voiced by Ken Watanabe, who also placed Dr Serizawa into the Godzilla film. This quote is a paraphrase of Serizawa's comment to the Commander.

    She did.

    Wash Godzilla - that would take ages.
    That would be like a labour of Hercules.

    It'd be a cool reference, but I doubt it'd be in the film, given that Godzilla came out a little over a month before AOE. The line wasn't really used in trailers until mid April, I believe. Now, the voice acting is something pretty quickly done, though. Maybe they'll squeeze it in. I remember in ROTF, Leo mentions the swine flu when they're going into Simmons' basement, for literally no reason other than the fact he's a complete idiot. It's obvious that was just thrown in there, since we don't see Leo actually saying it, only his voice. ROTF was filmed in 2008, and swine flu didn't start until spring 2009.
