    You win at... removing one "name slap" and replacing it with another?

    Because that's all you did.

    So... congratulations?

    I can't believe I'm wasting my time amusing a troll, but for the sake of argument, let me try to clarify what you're saying.

    Geewun is superior to any other transformers generations simply because the character names aren't nameslaps, because G1 came first and created these characters. Am I getting that about right?

    So, yeah, I'm defending Hasbro's decision to name these characters in the movies, because literally every other generation of transformers has also given new characters old names. I'm not arguing it's not to keep the copyright because it almost certainly is, but so fucking what?

    This is not a new concept, nor one that was invented by Michael Bay. If you wanna blame anyone for nameslapping, blame Hasbro.

    My problem with bayformers isn't that they don't look like their namesakes, its that they look like crap. I hate the ascetic massively, especially the Decepticons with the exception of Barricade. They area just ugly and look nothing like 99% of the robots we've seen for the last hundred years.

    Oh God...saying shit like this is exactly saying that Nick Fury doesn't look like the "original" Nick Fury.

    That really makes no sense....Of course the current Nick doesn't look like the original. He looks like Sam Jackson with an eye patch. What that has to do with my opinion about bayformers, I'm not quite sure. Oh well. I stand by my opinion that bayformers are ugly.

    Because the fact that you're bashing the movie Transformer's design is like bashing the MCU and Utimate Fury because he's nothing like the 616 Nick fury because what they have in common is that they're not trying to be like the originals 100%

    I'm not bashing them because they don't look like the originals, I'm bashing them because I think they are ugly and (IMO) don't even resemble any robot from any fiction ever (except maybe a couple bad animes). Maybe to some that is a good thing, (its definitely original) but not to me. The movies could have absolutely nothing to do with Transformers in any way and my opinion would be the same. To me they look like somebody put a bunch of parts from a junk yard together in a bipedal form and called it a 'robotmode'.

    Still, I posted to give my opinion, not start an argument, so I'm gonna leave it there. Each to their own and all that.

    But isn't it a good thing that the movie TF designs aren't a lot like other robots if it means they'll stand out more depending on one's view on them?

    Yeah, I guess you're right. While I don't like them personally, I agree that it's good to try something new once in a while (even if it fails) instead of just sticking with what's come before (Hollywood in general could learn something from that). Even if I don't like the direction, I concede it's a good thing they are willing to try it.

    See, it's posts like this that I don't really mind. You came, you stated your opinion, you admitted that it was just that, your opinion, and you moved on. It's when people try to tell me I'm "wrong" on something less that an absolute fact that REALLY gets me going.

    It seems like AoE decided to move away a bit from the walking junkyard designs. Do you dislike the new designs, too?

    I love how my post was removed, but the one that started this mess remains.

    They are better than the previous. I didn't dislike the dinos in their beast modes. robot modes, err, I see what they were going for and they are much better but still not to my liking (except the toy version of the red one, [Slash?] and Strafe). Drift was fine, as was Hound I guess. Still thought they were ugly. My main problem with AOE was Cybertronium or whatever they called it. I'm 50/50 on Hot Rod since he's my favorite character, but other than that...Lets just say I don't dislike the newer forms has much has the old ones (hell Barricade is pretty sweet imo).

    Sheesh... everytime I see this thread go up I always think that there is a new photo or anything new about Hot Rod... only to be disappointed to see users who cannot seem to get enough attention in their lives making their presence felt by posting negativity
