    But do you honestly think it would have been a proper continuation from AOE? Cause I really don’t. It’s true the writers room pushed things into the movie, but that was more to introduce threads for future films, which they did.


    None of these barely had any connections to each other in the first place. Each has the exact same plot premise, and theres no reason to believe that magically would have changed in TLK had the writers room not been involved.

    The Last Knight was like a fever dream. At least we got some good toys out of it, like Voyager Megatron and Nitro Zeus.

    I 10000% think that if they hadn't done the writer's room that it would have been a better film. As bad as Ehren Kruger is as a writer, it would have shown continuity and it would have been able to expand on the ideas that they set up. TLK does nothing with anything that came before. It's a big "fuck you" to anyone who wanted to see previous plot threads wrapped up or given closure. And it didn't do anything coherent for the mythology either, beyond saying the name unicron over and over without even explaining who or what he was, and show a bunch of random horns.

    There are so many questions that are not answered. Who are the creators? Why did they create the transformers? Why is there only one little metal lady on cybertron? What are the dinobots and where are they (except grimlock)? Is Optimus a knight or not? If not then why doesn't he seem to know that the knights of cybertron exist? Is the transformium technology lost forever? How did Galvatron become Megatron again and why? What was the point of showing this dramatic arrival to earth in tf07 if it turns out the entire cast was on earth on and off for centuries? How the hell could humanity not know about them when they've been actively in combat in wars all over the earth all this time? Why does Cade just drop the magical sword capable of stopping a robot 5 times his size right after he gets it? I'm sure I could think of more questions if I actually watched the movie again.

    I do think it would be different for the better. If I were to redo TLK I'd cut the whole WW2 stuff, drastically rewrite the Knights of Cybertron, and make Cybertron Unicron the big twist instead of Earth. Cut Izabella from the movie, and have the AoE cast more in the movie.

    Another one, where did Bumblebee get the ability to magnetise himself back together after being ripped apart? I can only theories that it came from the KSI's cube ability but it wasn't stated in the movie itself.

    Why are the TRF keeping cybertronians prisoners instead of just destroying them? I'm not opposed to the idea but I do want a handwave explanation like they want Intel from the captured Cybertronians or they are repurposed as slave labours.

    Where have Barricade been this whole time and how did he made contact with Megatron again? Its not that big an issue but a short throwaway line couldn't hurt.

    When did Megatron made the deal with Quintessa to look for the talisman? Megatron somehow works for her already before Optimus even arrived on Cybertron's ruins even though Galvatron stayed on Earth at the end of AOE.

    I really wish IDW kept doing the movie comics post DoTM. Those could have been used to fill in so many gaps pre AoE and pre TLK.

    Saw this pretty cool digibash on Cybercookie’s IG

    C77B2B61-8E93-467A-B736-A43ACFE56762.jpeg

    This actually gave me an idea to do a custom. Take the eventual SS AoE Bumblebee

    and do my take on a Bayverse Getaway

    BeeJack is just so many shades of cool packed into one. I never expected to like his design this much.

    So, question. Does anybody have any good MPM line up shots that have both official AND 3P?

    I’m specifically looking to see how the Movie 1 cast looks with UT Challenger, MPM-12, and DX9 La Hire.

    I don’t have the 3P stuff out right now, but La Hire and Challenger look good, MPM-12 not so much in my opinion, but that’s mostly because it’s going for a different aesthetic.

    Would you like them in robotmode or alt?
    I never got challenger cause I hated his altmode (it looks nothing like the truck) and it is to small to look decent in altmode with the cars.

    I can get pics of:
    La Hire, Mista, Bee, Jazz, BMB and BC-01 Optimus prime, BMB and MPM Ironhide, Jazz, Bumblebee, Barricade,
    BMB Sentinel Prime, Rotf Megatron, Shockwave and probably some more.
    I sold mpm Ratchet cause he is to small.

    Sorry, it took a while,
    I had to transform most of them (I store my robots in disguise)
    Most of these are custom painted but the scale obviously did not change..

    Here you go:
    image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg
    Left to right,
    Last row: BMB OS Shockwave, Rotf Megatron, Sentinel Prime, Blue Circus BC-01 Optimus Prime, BMB Ironhide KO os Drift (work in progress)

    front row: BMB OS Brawl, mista Soundwave, LT ko Bumblebee, Dance of Light Dino (work in progress) Custom OS Crosshairs, MPM Jazz, and La Hire

    EDIT! I forgot the Twins (Human Alliance) BB5B03F2-E52B-4D91-8508-9D3F7BAD7153.jpeg CD4604FC-6094-4899-B208-FDCA83A25925.jpeg
