RID Scourge comes up because of the alt-mode.
Yeah, I agree these Terrorcons are going to be new faction unlike any previous incarnation but I do think they want pay homage to the G1 & BW where it fits. Optimus, Arcee designs are very much G1 inspired and I'm sure many others will be as well.
A name is just a name, they could of used Hun-gurrr and completely changed the character (not saying they should have) just interesting that they chose Scourge, I wonder what made them pick him?
Probably name rights since there's SS86 Scourge and Hasbro has done this kind of thing in the past where they'll nameslap characters to retain the trademarks I.E. Armada Perceptor who has nothing to do with G1 Perceptor.
At least with Scourge it sounds like they're going to try making a combination of the three biggest versions. Still not sure how I feel about a flame beard as that just seems cheesy and impractical, but as long as the design is not something as insultingly stupid like AoE Galvaron I'll give it a chance.
There have been rumors about unicron appearing or some type of connection to unicron, and also scourge is a way cooler name than hun-gurr.
I think the ROTB Scourge design looked really good! Very villainous. He's not like Galvatron or any design we've seen before.
Scourge is a cooler name but I did always like the two headed beast alt mode of Hun-Gurrr in G1.
Yeah, It's probably they just thought it was a cool name, maybe Cyclonus could end up as a Terrorcon as well? I would like to see Cyclonus in ROTB.
Not quite. Armada didnt get the name from a cheap nameslap, it was an homage to the designer, Yoke-San. He worked on the minicons and the microscope both, and went on record to say the microscope is his favorite transformer.
I hope he looks like the easter bunny and turns into a helicopter.
I'm a little concerned. Throwing in not one but 3 new factions might make things a little too complicated, especially considering how we haven't even seen most of the existing Autobots or Decepticons as proper characters yet in the Beeverse. Beast wars is cool and all but let's hope they don't abandon all the set-up they did at the end of Bumblebee.
Honestly it's more just the one new faction with Terrorcons, who are if anything just anarchist splinter Decepticons from the looks of it. Preds and Maximals aren't really functionally all that different from Decepticons and Autobots besides being beasts.
Because try imagining the name of the main villain of your movie being, "Hun-Gurrr."
Technically in regards to the characters, that's still a nameslap. But then nameslaps are far more harmless and nowhere near as much of an issue as some think they are.
That's true, it could be interesting if they just go "oh yeah, these guys are part of the same team". Let's hope they make beast megs and classic megs different characters.
I was more refuting the argument that Perceptor was just for retaining the rights, though I didnt articulate that the best ill.admit
I wouldn't be surprised if Movie Scourge is going to be the BW Megatron character, simply to reduce confusion with the names.
Though I honestly hope we get Megatron in ROTB proper.
I'm actually thinking they're not on the same side as the Cons. I believe the Terracons were sent by Unicron and are a threat to all Cybertronians. We do have Nightbird who we were told changed sides—thus I'm speculating she was a former Decepticon who changed sides to the Terracons or simply got reformatted by Unicron.
I'd be kinda curious to see the response if they did decide to make them the same character in some sense (maybe Megs reformatted a la Galvatron), or make Scourge basically this films version of BW Megatron.
What I'm saying is I want a repeat of the time we got 'new concept art' for Cheetor in a hypothetical Beast Wars movie.
It’s unfortunate to say this but I’m pretty sure that the news of Russell crow, Nathan fillion, etc. is fake, because I found out that the official TF movie account follows these actors as well and there aren’t that many TF characters announced for this film.
so I guess this means that Russell Crowe, Nathan fillion, etc. are just some of the actors that the account follows.
But if Russell Crowe and some of the other actors are actually announced I will gladly take the news credit.
Nice work finding these. It doesn't necessarily mean that none of them are being followed for TF reasons.
I think Crowe would be a good addition as a voice actor. A fair few of the actors mentioned have done a bit of voice work previously, so it's definitely a possibility.
While true there are only 9 Characters announced for Rotb at the moment doesn't mean there aren't more I'm pretty sure they said as much that there was during the event.
Alot of these would be good choices for voice roles just have to wait and see
Do they follow Ron Perlman?
Separate names with a comma.
