I still find it weird that Deep Cover and Clampdown aren't a two-pack like Spinout and Cordon are.
Maybe its been confirmed and I missed it, but do we know if the Sparkless seeker in netflix wave 3 is the siege or earthrise mold?
And do we know what he's packed with? Micromasters/battlemasters or a core class?
I believe he is said to be the Siege mold.
so that would be 2 siege molds being used next eyar possible, one for sg subline and the other for this
I thought they were both the Earthrise mold? (I could be wrong) edit: I was wrong
siege for netflix, earthrise for shattered glass
Oh, ok thanks!
actually we don't know if it earthrise for sg, but from catz rumor, the siege mold is with the second commander coming next year, and we have a second commander in the sg line, so more likely it a siege mold for sg line
Okay I know I shouldn't quote this and feed into your bullshit, but....
1.) I personally care about the movies quite a lot. In fact, if it wasn't for them, I wouldn't the the fan I am today. I got my first Transformer when I was 7 years old, the Robots in Disguise Optimus Prime (the Super Fire Convoy one) and I was pretty much only into his fire truck mode until the first film came out in 2007. I remember seeing the trailer with my mom when we saw another movie in theaters and getting ridiculously excited; the shot that sold me was Bonecrusher bursting through the bus with flames on his body afterwards. The film came out when I was only 10 years old and I remember sleeping over my friends' house and watching a bootleg version with half the film missing . I saw the actual complete Transformers months later in my local $2 theater and loved it.
During Revenge of the Fallen, I started collecting with my mom buying me a bunch of figures and truly my LOVE for Transformers came into fruition. I loved every film I saw and the toys because of them... unfortunately I had to restart my whole collection in 2012 after being homeless for a year and losing all of our stuff, but I still love buying movie stuff to this day, especially the Studio Series line and Movie Masterpieces, even though most of them are 3rd party.
Please don't make such statements when we do care about the movies and became fans because of them.
2.) Terrible? Everyone's entitled to their own opinions but I think they're pretty decent films. Transformers (2007) is legitimately a pretty damn solid film and holds up to this day. Sure Revenge of the Fallen has it's cringy moments/over-the-topness but it's still pretty awesome when not thinking too critically. Hell, the Sam, Mikaela and Leo being kidnapped by Grindor to the forest battle sequence is arguably one of, if not the, best of the franchise. Then you have Dark of the Moon which was more of a return to form (pun intended) and actually did most things very well. Of course, Shockwave got pretty f**ked by barely being in the film, but Sentinel was pretty awesome. Age of Extinction felt like a restart of sorts, and had who I believe to be the best villain of the films: Lockdown. Plus, the movie has many aspects I personally enjoy, and yes, controversially that includes the KSI transformations. The final one, The Last Knight, is definitely more disliked then liked by the community but it's my third favorite film of the Bay ones. Yes, the Transformers fighting in wars is stupid, but once again, there are several elements that make it a very fun ride.
Now that's just for Bayverse. Of course, you can argue about all of the plot holes, things left unexplained and inconsistencies, but you would be hard pressed to find a film series that doesn't have any at all. Am I saying these movies are masterpieces? No, far from it, but they're pretty enjoyable and entertaining plus do some unique things for the Transformers universe.
3.) This is just straight out false. The CGI designers worked very hard on these movies and had to use real life vehicles that transformed into 20+ foot tall alien robots. You're allowed to feel however you want about the designs, but you can't discredit the hard work that went into them, the transformations, fights, etc..
In regards to the transformations specifically, the transformations across the first three films are pretty consistent in terms of how they transform and were things end up in both modes. When we get to Age of Extinction and The Last Knight, there is some "cheating" involved, but several of the transformations could still work in real life. After all, keep in mind these are ALIEN robots from another planets scanning EARTH alternate modes. Also, keep in mind they're going to have less kibble for Cybertronian modes versus Earth modes; one is from their home planet and one is a compromise that's engineered on another planet by another species. As for working in real life? There's no such things as Transformers so....
4.) What about the faces, colors, and chest, legs and arms structures? Even if you remove all of the kibble, you could still tell who is who. They all have pretty unique designs, specifically in the proportions and faces.
that not saying starscream or gold bug are using er mold, that just saying megatron is
right here he says it probably siege
I'm thinking the same thing. I mean when you think about it TLK Knight Optimus figure really does a lot to have him fit into SS nicely once you add minor adjustments to him such as rotating wrists and an accurate color scheme. So I can't see how a new mold for the design would differ that much. If SS manages to do so however and prove me wrong I'll tip my hat to them.
But we were talking about megatron, not starscream
oh, you said something about siege and er, and I though it was still about starscream, my apologizes, I guess I misread
actually, after rereading i think you misunderstood the conversation, since you quoted someone talking about the seeker mold instead of megs molds when this started
I really need to read more. Sorry
it fine, no harm done
I still hope they surprise us with Sunstorm and Bitstream in the Siege mold.
And having functional knees.
