Primus bless Cybertron!!
so many colour errors I'm surprised we've not seen any of those from 3p's or as Hasbro Pulse toys. I'd be down for a construticon green/purple Shockwave (light wave, Gamma ray) and an Onslaught coloured seeker.
Already got him and I'll give you that it's deffo got green with that arm and chest detailing (and I want to say the solar panels are like reflective goldy-green) but I need like Seige or maybe Newage/MC with what I think's Hooks colours.
Offslaught needs a toy
I really hate transformers not having pupils in their eyes/optics it makes it really hard to understand who theyre talking to in a crowd when theyre not looking at them. Like please give them pupils so I can know theyre actually freaking alive and if theyre not staring into my soul
Grey is the worst color for Megatron, despite being his iconic color scheme and it requires more colors to break it apart, such as more red+black/dark grey, dark blue or flat out making a Megatron that's purple, green or some other color. This is especially bad in toy form because the cheaper the Megatron toy, the more he's going to look like bland unpainted plastic.
If painted with shiny silver, however, it can work but this is rarely budget efficient for a toyline.
Honestly, many of his repaints, such as Animated Shadow Blade Megatron or his IDW Stealth Bomber design, work rather well. Another route would be to go with something like his Beast Wars S1 colors.
I liked all the Bayverse films
(although that's likely cus I really didn't care about the plot and/or my interest in the film itself and the cinema food is a split 50/50 )
Megatron is the best streamer.
Megatron would definitely be a more interesting Twitch streamer than Optimus. Optimus would just kill himself over the death of an NPC, but Megatron would probably be the one doing the killing.
NGL, with V-tubers and Hololive been quite popular nowadays, I wonder what would be like if Megatron sat down to start a live-streaming Hololive career on YouTube or Twitch, using his own holo avatar and a webcam.
an accursed concept
The Cyberverse design of the Quintessons is way, WAY cooler than the G1 design.
This really shouldn't be unpopular.
The designs featured in the opening of the Bumblebee are highly overrated and not all that great and some, like Arcee, Ratchet, Ironhide, have absolutely terrible faces.
I totally agree.
I didn't want to derail the main thread, but the news of the tarp covered flat nose truck being transported in Canada potentially being Optimus Prime does nothing for me. Whoop-dee-doo. It's yet another flat nose Optimus Prime. That's also another reason I'm posting this comment on this thread: I have absolutely no excitement about the next film, save for my excitement for new toys (because I've gotta feed my plastic crack addiction lol). I know that the designs are going to be G1. Not to mention the plethora of "G1 good Bay bad" takes that people are going to be putting out once the official designs are revealed.
Not only are they overrated, but I would argue that they are the reason the movie had so much staying power amongst the fan base. The movie was okay, but I honestly feel like if it hadn't been for the Cybertron scenes in the movie, this film would've been tossed to the wayside by fans after a few months. They'd only bring it up to talk about how it's "at least better than the Bay movies".
That and, the drastic change in quality of writing from AOE/TLK (and some, like myself, may argue earlier) and Bumblebee definitely helps.
I definitely feel that the 100% it kept on Rotten Tomatoes for a while and the very high score it currently has is a result of "Oh my god a good Transformers movie" knockback after the last few.
