I hate the fact that some people don’t understand this is a joke and are taking it seriously
A joke would at (least try) to be funny.
That isn't. But what do I know...my attempts at humor often fall flat too.
Ehh seeing some of the comments in this forum, I wouldn't put it past them being completely serious.
The most Important part is.....Peter Cullen is back!!!!
the thing is: the joke isnt funny, this is an example of an unfunny joke, a funny joke looks like this:
A lot of the potential Bay connections are worrying me, but at least one thing that seems promising is that the director mentioned something about time travel. I’ve been worried about the Beast Wars characters being reduced to just regular, modern day Autobots and Decepticons, which I feel would miss the point of BW in general. So hopefully at least that part is cleared up?
I’m sure Nightbird will be googled a lot with the phrase “R34” in the coming future.
Comments from this Polygon article on what kind of aesthetic to expect: "The concept art shown at the event isn’t available to share here, but this appears to be true — they’re less the sinewy weird metal from the Michael Bay films and a little boxier, more obviously reconfigured car parts. Three Maximals were also revealed: Airazor, Rhinox, and Optimus Primal, only shown off in their animal form, each more statuesque and organic than machine."
No Charlie? Oh thank Primus! Wait a minute...*Squint at title*
Repent! Repent! The time of the shitty-Bayesque Beasts are upon us!
Why do they still pretend as if this is tied to the Bayverse?
What BS are you even talking about? You've moved this so far away from the original discussion and added so many words to what I've said, I don't even know how to respond. It's part of the plot of beast wars that the names are homages to great warriors of their past. So what even is your point there?
If you call a character Blitzwing, I want to see three modes and have it not look like Starscream. Twist that however you want to make some witty reply, but if we never actually reboot, we will never see a Triple changing Blitzwing in this live action universe and that sucks. Making a bunch of false equivalences doesn't change that.
Are we sure it's not just Lorenzo Di Bonaventura saying it's connected to the Bayverse? He doesn't seem like he has knowledge of...well, anything.
Also, he didn't explicitly say it was connected to the Bayverse. Whatever was said was super ambiguous and could honestly go either way.
That is what I’m counting on. I just hope the fear of contradicting the Bay movies doesn’t get in the way of characters and story. Like Megatron not showing up because “he is supposed to be on ice” that would be super annoying.
It's part of the plot in BW that they are different characters and are merely named to honor the warriors of the past. They all exist in the same universe hence Optimal Optimus. That's not the same as making what amounts to live action G1 and making one character look like another major character while removing one of their defining features by never showing a second alt mode. That character should have been a throw away name, despite any other perceived patterns of change or excuses for reimagining this group of fanboys can muster. It was a bad choice, accept it, and move on.
Sure. And you know what the tank Decepticon in the original 2007 film was named?
I seem to distinctly remember the 2009 sequel also having a very, very different Devestator that wasn't really Brawl.
I personally don't like them burning the name Blitzwing on a disposable character, but the funny thing is nowhere in Bumblebee was he was he actually addressed by name as such. A proper triple changer Blitzwing could appear with his name intact and nothing is ruined. Or they could call the triple changer Overcharge - the name being an homage to the eHobby redeco of the G1 toy meant to be a Quintesson mass production drone.
So help me if this aint a sequel to the bumblebee film reboot im junping ship folks
To borrow from MTMTE I tend to think of it as A Blitzwing not THE Blitzwing.
Considering the main bad guy is scourge and not Megatron, it would seem they are going to still keep pretending he’s on ice.
If that turns out to be the case I will hate it.
