omg so true so true
Fans can't destroy a movie there, Champ. Crappy character design of the main antagonist can for sure.
I'm a "geewunner" and I LOVE it! And, check out that BFG!!!
I'm thinking with sand here.
If any of them fall in sand they're screwed.
There = location
eg. "It's over there." "There's my girl." "Don't go there."
Their = ownership
eg. "Their comic." "The design is theirs."
They're = contraction of "they are."
eg. "They're going to love this on the big screen." "They're screwed if they fall over in the sand."
Yeah yeah, I'm a pedant. I have these pills, you know...
Well that looks better, I think the flames are silly but I can live with them. Is it just me or does that gun look more appropriate for Megatron?
That won't be seen til the last part of the movie...
Cool design. I like it.
Blackout and Prime are very nice designs. I don't expect 100 percent movie-to-toy transition, but if it's in the 70 percent compatible range, that's still pretty good.
A man is controlling it.
I swear it looks like a man is in the midsection of Prime with his arms out in a V shape and leg inside Prime's thighs.
I know it probably is not , but damn..............it looks like it.
I like it, personally I would like to see it look a little boxier, not a lot but for it to show some more of its disguise aspects. This is certainly much much better than megatron who doesnt look anything like a robot that transforms and instead looks like a monster from an alien movie.
I can't believe people want to see the same 20+ year old designs over and over again. Isn't a little variety a good thing? About the Prime here, I'm lovin' it. Looks sleek.
Not when variety entails altering fundamental concepts that have held the franchise together for 20+ years. Most of the designs lack the biggest thing that makes a Transformer a Transformer, being that most don't have clearly recognizable pieces of their alt mode in robot mode (with the exception of tires, lost of vehicles have tires). Even TF's from the more recent TF cartoons have pieces of their alt modes that pretty clearly identify what they are in alt mode. The designs so far feel very generic transforming robot instead of feeling like a re-incarnation of a beloved Transformer. And please, nobody play dumb about not knowing the difference between transforming robots and Transformers, it's just annoying. At the very least, they could have used G1-ish heads instead of alien heads to keep some nastolgic feel to the robots.
The Prime design I can live with as well as the Blackout design, but the rest are pretty sorry looking to me. Solid colors would have worked much better and would have been more "Realistic" than the flame job. Also, I'd have liked to see more chunky-ness to him. He's just a little frail looking and it's still hard to clearly see where everything disappears to in his transformation. Why they couldn't have used the designs from the TF Infiltration comic book is beyond me.
Well I don't care what people say, I don't like it. Until I see it transform normal and not explode into a million parts, I'm gonna avoid the movie.
I have to say I'm not impressed, I just don't like the overall look of these bots.
A LOT better than Megatron & Starscream.
On the other hand I thought we were supposed to see that he transformed from a truck.
I'm with Shin-Gouki. They just don't look Transformer-like.
I don't mind the redesign. If anything, I'm glad they don't look like anything I expected. What I am curious about is how they move and transform. From the looks of it, it should be wild.
Meh, does nothing for me.
I like it. Prime has really grown on me more than any of the other designs. I love that they managed to keep the window-chest and even a hint of the silver-grille "abs" from G1.
It's also nice to see that the constant bickering seems to be dying down (here, at least). Really, the extremists on either side were starting to drive me nuts, not-to-mention making the fandom more hostile than I've ever seen it.
what's all the hubub? It's JUST Prime,,,,,
