Anybody noticed how much Scourge look's like Luke Skywalker's LandSpeeder?
Honestly I never noticed.... and I'm surprised because I'm an even bigger fan of Star Wars than I am of Transformers lol.
Mind = blown
Now that you mention it....
Weren't a lot of the laser and flying sounds right out of Star Wars also? They were obviously inspired by SW quite a bit. I wouldn't doubt it. If only Scourge were easier to get cheap, that would be a good kitbash. Or if the Generations Scourge's alt mode weren't so different...
yeah,I noticed that during around 1987.
It would be kinda cool for takara/hasbro to recolor a scourge sweep in luke skywalker landspeeder brown colors.
that generations Scourge would make a decent brown colored sweep.
I always thought Scourge looked like a really fancy bar of soap.
Shit, I didn't even notice.
But he so does.
Wow that's amazing. Never even noticed all these years. If scourge had a passenger section, it would be a dead match.
I didn't notice until my wife pointed it out a year or so ago.
I was born in '75...my very first solid memory was my grandparents taking me to see Star Wars. Transformers has ALWAYS been something I love, and I have distinct memories of seeing the '86 movie in the theaters.
I. Have. Never. Considered. This.
Ever. Not once. I have owned multiple landspeeders, G1 Scourge and Titanium Scourge, the movie and S3, and not once have I thought of this.
So simple. So brilliant.
I'm SO doing this project, and I'll totally give you credit for the idea. Awesome.
I noticed this back when I was a kid during the 80's. I always thought is was cool.
Well, I guess this means that there were certain things borrowed from Star Wars in The Transformers: the Movie then. Mind = blown
(I never really noticed)
actually, I think you uber geeks are looking into it way too much.....
I personally don't think it was intentional.
So we can add this to the 1986 movie = Star Wars list? Giant killer planets, young brash character grows up, mentor/leader is killed by enemy....nazi/samurai helmets
Yeah, I knew of the correlation. Not of my own brainstorming, however. That would involve having seen Star Wars and the original TF movie/Season three of G1. No, I know because it was mentioned in the second episode of Plastic Addict.
I've also noticed a few sounds from Star Trek as well. Like whenever Soundwave releases the energon cubes out of his chest, you hear the familiar swoosh of the doors off of Star Trek.
Well, that would maybe make a SWTF figure actually worth buying.
