I don't give a crap that it's not G1. I'm not a G1er. I agree the movies do have the right to be different IF they are a bit similar. I'm complaining that they are NOT AT ALL SIMILAR. You don't seem to get that. I would honestly enjoy the movies allot more if they weren't Transformers at all because they aren't really. Just because they use the names of Transformers characters they're suppose to be Transformers? Have you seen "Transmorphers" it's bascially the same thing as the Transformers movies only better because they're not trying to pass themselves off as Hasbro characters. You can't call yourself Batman if you're wearing a mosquito costume. I'm not hating on the movies because they're not G1, I'm hating on the movies because most of it's characters fail to be recognizable as Transformers. Beast Wars, R.I.D., Armada, Energon, Cybertron all have recognizable Transformers design aspects that you can tell who most of the characters are meant to be. There's a few odd balls in there like R.I.D. Ultra Magnus or Energon Ironhide who stray REALLY far away from the original characters. But in the movies only Optimus Prime, Soundwave, and Shockwave are recognizable characters while everyone else seems to be an entirely new character. Bumblebee is just yellow so that some how is suppose to make me instantly recognize him as Bumblebee? So I guess Cheetor and Hot Shot are also Bumblebee sense they're both yellow too. I don't really recognize him as any Transformers character. Actually what he reminds me of is a non Transforming robot made by an entirely different toy company. Great way to sell toys, someone else toys that is. I just like to be able to look at a character and know who the hell they're suppose to be without looking it up on the internet, is that so wrong?
