Fred definitely sucks, but also whenever he spoke in the English dub, all I could hear was this guy:
Ok, thanks guys. I get the impression I should just avoid this pair altogether!
It's funny to me that the WFC Trilogy is making older shows like TFP or the UT seem like works of art. I saw a clip from Prime a few days ago, and just the pace of the dialogue made it seem like a masterpiece compared to WFC.
I'm not going to see if this holds true for the UT though. I'm not that much of a glutton for punishment.
Ehh, both Billy and Fred aren't my favourite human characters but I've seen worse characters from other shows; Kira Yamato from Gundam SEED Destiny would be an example of such.
Speaking of which, how Optimus Prime was depicted in the Netflix series really reminds me of Kira Yamato as he appears in Gundam SEED Destiny; In that narratively the show really wants for you to side with them and sees them as the "Big Hero" whose actions was always in the right, even if the action they took were anything but that.
IMO, "William and Frederick" are bad, but they don't make my top five worst TF characters. They would just make the dishonorable mentions.
Seriously though, this Optimus prime couldn’t lead himself out of a paper bag
Spoiler: The one Optimus has is a fake, Rodimus Prime has the real Matrix and he's coming back to bust some heads!
Don't put this in blue text.
Alpha Trion also thinks banishing someone to hell forever is a humane punishment, so yeah, that tracks.
Which leaves us asking the question of why he didn't do that to Megatron as soon as he started going off the reservation.
Alpha Trion is a moron, which might explain why he's dead now.
I've never (ever) liked Rodimus, but at this point I'd be happy if he stepped into WFC, took the matrix by force, and beat some sense into OP. Optimus is simply awful in this series, and absolutely deserves a thorough ass-kicking. Or if the series isn't ready for the flame-chested one, then I'll take Wheeljack Prime, Elita Prime, Ironhide Prime, Jetfire Prime... they're all more decisive than this whiney iteration of Optimus.
Just finished episode 4 of Siege and it was by a mile my favorite so far! A lot of things to like here, even if the script is a mixed bag. I’m kinda used to the voice acting my how.
I can’t believe Starscream/the Seekers chest cockpit is faux just like the toy and is actually on the back of their jet modes just like the toy.
Did Hasbro develop the toys and show simultaneously to make sure even the kibble was accurate, fake or not?
The show just used the CAD files for the toys to make the character designs and called it a day.
I'm a little scared of what would happen if Wheeljack got the Matrix
On the subject of the voice acting (but trying to lighten it up a little lol), I really liked Shockwave's voice in this series. It has a more Tarantulas-y vibe to it, and I feel like it matches really well with his charactarization as a mad scientist with no morals whatsoever. Props to his voice actor for sure
Seems about par for the course for about 75% of Armada. There was good there, but man was there some stupid. Massive battle and the stupid humans start rattling about not shooting the trees? WTF?
Optimus is . . . sub-par in WFC, but I find without Elita there constantly pimp-slapping the stupidity from him every time he opens his energon guzzler, he's gotten worse in Earthrise.
Elita ain't great in this show either (no one is) but she deserves a hell of a lot better than this moron.
Optimus comes from the Latin world, optimo, which means excellent. Prime can mean leader. The full definition of Optimus Prime is "excellent leader".
This version of Optimus Prime should get his name changed.
Idiot translated into Latin is fatuus. Therefore, his name should be Fatuus Prime.
Or Pessimus Prime. Pessimus is Latin for worst.
Separate names with a comma.
