    Most people don't inhabit that side of the forums, so posting it here makes some sense.

    As for the news...
    Mini donobots- okay, sounds cute.
    Grimlock- he's now comedy relief. *sigh*
    Hot Rod- French accent 'just because'. *le sigh*
    Squeeks- Can only say Chihuahua WHY again?

    Overall, the bar is set VERY low for this one, but it does sound like an interesting Saturday matinee.

    God Comicbook.com is the laggiest, most ad-riddled POS website. Does anyone have a bullet point list of what was stated?

    Going off what I was able to read and what's been said, the only thing I groan at is Squeeks only being able to say "Chihuahua." What the hell, they're not even trying to be subtle about ripping off Groot from GOTG, and honestly I didn't find Groot all that funny to begin with. And why Chihuahua specifically? Callback to Sam's dog, or just brainless trite writing because haha funny word?

    Eveyrthing else, whatevs. Grimlock sounds like every animated adaptation of the character, mini Dinobots sound inoffensive, and Hot Rod having a French accent is whatever since most of the 'bots have had non-American accents.

    Grimlock will probably be killed off. Dogs dying in movies often ends up having a larger audience reaction... so Grimlock acts like a dog now.

    Squeeks only says Chihuahua because of 'I am Groot'. Its clear someone saw the movie and thought that would make the character likeable or cute.

    all of this only confirms my fears that for some reason they are doubling down on many of the worst aspects of the prior movies.

    Maybe a rental or cheap Christmas blow out Blu Ray.

    BTW, the trailer will look amazing and make me want to see it, but remaining strong this time.

    I wish Squeeks only said his name so it could be a Pokemon Go reference.
    That would have at least been funny.

    All Pokemon say their name?
    They've done that since the franchise first began.

    So how is it a Go refferance? Wouldn't it be refferancing Pokemon in general?

    I've been losing interest in the movies little by little since ROTF.

    This doesn't sound like it's going to make me excited in the slightest. :lol

    seems to me they are going pretty blatantly for a Groot + BB-8 vibe.

    Nobody should be surprised that this is shaping up to be terrible. It's all the same people calling the shots. A writing room of a bunch of grade D writers and one guy who one time wrote something good aren't going to make a difference in the end.

    But this may be one of those extremely epic bombs where this movie becomes legendarily bad. There are so many levels of stupid at this point 5 movies in that you can hardly comprehend them all.
