    No a true sheep would...

    I have a mind of my own which doesn't have to follow all the g1 rules, it just has look...."GOOD!"

    The only issue I have here is why do the people who do love every crappy cartoon Hasbro creates and calls a transformer, feel the need to rebuttal everything big brother (aka G1er) doesn't like about it!?

    Starscream as a bodged F-16 lookalike with spikes on it is strange. I don't really get that. It's not an update to his G1 alt mode because it's based on another jet from the 1970s, and it looks a lot less modern than the F-22 that the movie character turns into. He could have just stayed an F-15 with a new transformation to keep him looking like a toothpick.

    Not sure why I'm trying to make sense of this one design choice when it's all so horrible. :tongue:

    I've been down with Transformers since day one, I am a Geewunner! But I love Transformers from all series. I always like some designs, and hate others. But one thing for sure is that I always enjoy watching the series, there is just something about seeing all of my favorite characters re-invented over and over again. So far I do not feel Soundwave, but so what, I'm sure it will be awesome when we finally get to see him in action!!

    This

    I'm not normally one to bash anything, as I try to keep subjectivity in mind. I even like Soundwave's face. But... his arms are soooo thin, almost 2D. I just don't 'get' it. Plus his altmode looks like a marital aid with wings.

    Haha! So true.

    Honestly I think the only toy I might like from this range is Arcee, simply because there hasn't been a good mold of her in... well, ever.

    That's good, I only speak to people who don't act like jerks to everyone who doesn't agree with their narrow minded view of a toy line.

    I freaking love Bulkhead's design. But I'm still very iffy on Soundwave.

    Touché. You're right, I shouldn't make that call but I still think that a Transformers fan should at least enjoy some aspect of each incarnation of them.

    First of all lets all congratulate ourselves for arguing over the internet - oooh yeah we're super cool, now. Someone here is always going to find something negative about anything Transformers. I myself don't personally care for these character designs, however if they fit into their environment and work with their personalities than I may be swayed.

    When Beast Wars came around I was 100% against the idea of giant robots becoming monkeys and rhinos. Yet I sat down and watched a few episodes - now Beast Wars is amongst my favorite sublines, if only for the writing. Once I cast aside prejudice and watched it with an open mind their physical designs made sense. Let's just see where Transformers: Prime goes.

    As I said before, I'm not thrilled about a few of these designs, but lets see if they work for the characters once the show drops. I wasn't big on Bayformers either, but I've learned to respect them for their own thing. Also Human Alliance Barricade is a kick-ass figure.

    PS: TFP Bulkhead still looks like a Gunmen. Gurren Lagann would Kick. His. Ass.

    I just don't like the way they look. I said the same thing about animated though. I now love animated.

    Well Bulkhead looks great, and now that Starscream's not flat he does look a lot better. Soundwave still looks weird, but I really hope he grows on me.

    I can't really dig Starscream/Voldermort as an F16 - it's a bit... unglamorous for him.

    The fact that it's a bit spiky, you can see seam lines, and has kibble hanging off the underside gives me hope for toys down the track (like they've been working directly from a toy sketch or similar).

    Soundwave, for some reason, reminds me of Transmetal Terrorsaur. Maybe it's the arms (which form the wings in his alt. mode) and somewhat his colors.

    Nobody has to like what others like. It's that simple.
