    "Master... the reinforcements..."

    "Wait, didn't I kill you already?"

    "Primus would be ashamed..."

    "AAUGHGHJGBWUEBNI" *as Optimus uses his sword to fucking rip his goddamn spine out*

    I dunno man, even with the limited material he was given, couldn't Dinklage have - oh, I don't know - shown some despair, snarkiness, confidence, and actual pain with the lines he was given?

    I wouldn’t be surprised if he did and they just covered what was there with way too many filters.

    I dunno, besides the bad voice direction (even Peter Cullen gave a pretty mid performance), I just don't think Dinklage is a good voice actor.

    Do you remember a few years ago when he gave a performance for a video game that was so bad that not only did the developers replace him with an actual VA, but went back and re-recorded all of the characters lines with said VA? To me, Dinklage's performance here wasn't so different. Low energy, uninterested and boring throughout. It certainly didn't help that Scourge's characterization was awful as well.

    Can't disagree with you two there. To me, Dinklage did a serviceable job because Scourge - and the whole movie really - is just so meh, just couldn't care much in the end. Scourge designs, with so many kills and faction tatts, should have much richer backstory. I doubt Dinklage can save the character even if he can turn in (which he can't) an Oscar-worthy performance.

    I'm just never attracted by Hollywood stars voicing any animated movies/CG characters, even if I love those stars. Let the VA pros have that lane. ROTB had it ass backward, got 2 B-listers as leads, and stars as VA? Why?

    Ngl, that was pretty funny. I'm actually surprised they brought back Peter Dinklage to voice Scourge for this ad.

    I think that's where the sportscasters are sitting but... Huh, yeah, it does sort of look like the ark.

    This is similar to Bumblebee advertising Paramount+ to promote the new streaming service in 2019-2020. It shows that Paramount/Dreamworks can create more Transformers animation.
