    STARSCREAM: So. New planet, new alt mode. I'm thinking something sleek and cool, like a bullet train or a fighter jet. You?
    MEGATRON: Knife drawer.
    STARSCREAM: What? You're goi--
    MEGATRON: Knife drawer.
    STARSCREAM: How is that useful?
    MEGATRON: Giant flying knife drawer aimed right at your stupid bell-shaped head.
    (long pause)
    STARSCREAM: (sigh) and I can't convince you try something practical, like a tank, or a truck, or...
    MEGATRON: KNIFE DRAWER.

    I'm a G1 fan and I'm not looking forward to another movie. I'm burnt out.

    Tbh, I'm just happy that we're getting a new movie. I don't want more G1 but if they give us a good film with good designs (even if they resemble G1), I'll be happy. Mixing bayverse design elements and parts of G1 would be great. Also, they should definitely change things up (maybe give one or two of them a completely new face)
    That's awesome! I'm so excited for the Fallen! I'm hoping he's going to be a commander class figure. It's about time he got an upgrade!

    Also, Leader Devcon possibly? PLEASE HAPPEN!!

    I feel like people focus too much on “ugh G1” or “ugh not g1 enough”, or “but original designs!!” (Even tho we had 10 years of them). Designs are designs, but can people for once complain about something actually meaningful? Like can we for once actually hope for character, with this being only the second new director in 13 years? Like robots having personality and an actual good movie seems important, not whether it’s too 80’s or not.

    I thought about buying the third party masterpiece version, but then I’d want the other MP and that’s not a rabbit hole I want to go down

    You sure? That was one of the main complaints about this kit and I could've swore that DNA said they added wrist swivels.

    This is pretty tame compared to the Star Wars fandom

    I guess that's not too much to ask :rolleyes: 

    All joking aside though, you're not wrong. I can look past bland character designs if the actual robots are compelling characters and have some personality.

    It doesn't mean that I don't want more original takes on the bots but as long as they aren't treated like set pieces or cannon fodder I'll be happy.

    The Bumblebee movie is a good example of this. The designs aren't my favorite but I was willing to get behind the movie because the characters were actually compelling and the movie had some heart to it.

    The Bay films, as much as I love them, are truly only good for the CGI models and some of the fight scenes. Sideswipe is my favorite character but it isn't because he has a good story arc. He doesn't have any character development at all. He's just a super cool design.

    If the future movies can actually make me empathize and feel for the robots, then I'll be willing accept any design they go with.
