This will only end in despair....
No that isn't a Starscream line, I'm talking about these threads.
The writers worked hard to get "fair compensation". Now I don't know about the rest of you but every time I got a raise it meant I was expected to perform at a higher level. Thatis what I expext from the writers this time around.
YES, I do want a nod to G1 and a few classic lines thrown in, BUT IN CONTEXT. "You failed me again starscream" to me was waisted in the first movie. I just didn't feel like it had any context, and would have served them better in the second with a return of megatron/galvatron. There were a lot of nods to the fans but the pure G1 lines were almost forced in.
Like a few before me have said, Take a page from TF Animated. They have done extremely well with giving a nod to the fans (I had to laugh when I saw Krimzeek in the soundwave episode). More importantly they have done it with style and without forcing it in.
The writers did a great job of making NEW catch phrases (like Jazz's and Ratchet's) and should focus more on making new quotes that fit each characters persona rather than an poorly placed verbatum quote from G1.
Even though it was a great movie, Seems to me like there were a lot of people involved in the first movie that just didn't get TF from a fan standpoint, It's nice to see that this time they are paying a little bit more attention to us. It's too bad screamer had to become a big monkey before it happened, I don't mind the rest of the redesigns but I think Starscream got ripped off. I always saw him as some kind of pretencious princely type, jaded and spoiled with a chip on his shoulder, just doesn't fit with the new body.
No need to read any further, as that's my pick too. Best. Starscream. Line. EVER.
Haha!!!!! Yea you beat me to it! Hahahaaa!
"Oh, how it pains me to do this" would be my pick, as well as "Megatron has fallen! I, Starscream, am your new leader!" or something to that effect.
"I'm stupid! I'M STUPID!" and "FLOPTIMUS PRIME!" would be pretty funny too.
Mi picks would be:
1) Any line where Starscream nominates himself new leader. Which would work great, 'cause Megatron will be gone at least during the opening acts of the new movie.
2) "Megatron, is that you?" when Megatron returns. I'm pretty sure by that time Megatron would have a new alt mode, so he'll look different.
YES!! Gawd, that one makes me laugh so hard!
Because its all about you ...
"Oooooh my FOOT!"
So many good ones.
I'd say some variation of "Megatron has fallen, I am you new leader!" is the most likely or "Pathetic fool, there's no escape!"
One I always liked that has yet to be mentioned:
Loyal soldier (Shockwave): I serve only Megatron!
Starscream: Then go back to Earth and die with Megatron!
I thought the movie was made for a mass audience, and that catering to the fans will alienate the masses.
Not common quotes but could be useful
when Dr. Arkeville is crying for help
"Megatron might be through with you, but I am not".
When he is talking to rumble about becoming leader in season 1
"my time will come, I can wait"
megatron is blasted with a destabilizer ray
"megatron has fallen, I starscream, am now your leader. Decepticons, follow me"
RTM Favorite Starscream lines
"How do you feel mighty Megatron?" "Astrotrain, transforme and get us out of here."
Pathetic fool! There's no escape!
Id like that quote please
Just about anything Screamer said in G1 was gold, but then again the over sized gorilla machine gun hand plane guy in the movie just doesnt work the same way but nonetheless it'd still be nice to hear a familiar saying.
Honestly I'd rather have Starscream have "real" dialog next time around rather then 1-2 silly cartoon catch phrases. Any G1 nods are great and all but we need to have some real speaking lines.
I agree lets do some original stuff this time around, this isn't the cartoon, this isn't even the original story line. So lets create some new material huh?
One day ill lead youll see youll see
oooo oh if Megs was to talk to Starscream he could say
Megs: "Your knowledge is only overshadowed by your stupidity" - More then meets the eye part 2
I've always liked "OOOWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!! MY FOOT!"
But if I had to be serious, I'd go with these:
"Pathetic fools! There's no escape!"
"Oh how it pains me to do this."
"Megatron, is that you?"
Of course, the last two have to be in the right context.
