Fuck that teaser is almost as bad as the 5th Element stuff was. At least that one says something about it, but damn I’d like to see something more than the “meets the eye” thing.June 10, 2006 at 4:30 am #11401ElNachoParticipant
their war our world? isnt that the exact same thing as alien vs predator or whatever?June 10, 2006 at 5:45 am #11424FrankParticipantElNacho wrote:their war our world? isnt that the exact same thing as alien vs predator or whatever?
yeah, but it still fits. I don’t think they’re going to create Cybertron, althought that would be fuckin’ sah-weet if they did.June 10, 2006 at 6:10 am #11405
Okay, I’m gonna geek out for a bit, so hope you’re ready…
The first episode of the Transformers — they showed a bit of Cybertron. Enough to know that the Autobots were leaving Cybertron to find energon cubes. The Decepticons raid their ship and end up crashing on Earth. Then a volcano erupts, waking up the computer in the ship. I just remember the computer saying, “Explore, explore”, and then, once finding designs for the Transformers to transform in to, the computer repaired the lot of them.
Now, a couple of things always bothered me about this first episode, and I’m curious to see what they decide to change. First, why did all of them in their robot form still look like they had Earth parts — for example, Jazz still had a Porsche front end, and Ironhide still had the windshield of the van, before they came to Earth to transform into those things. And second, the computer didn’t realize what to repair and what not to repair — in other words, even though the Decepticons were enemies, the computer still repaired them. So how and why did it not use similar designs? Is this just another case of “it’s in the script?”
So yeah, I’m really curious to see how they’re going to handle all this. Apparently, they’re not going to be using the characters of Spike and Sparkplug, and Bumblebee won’t be a Volkswagen Bug, as we’ve already seen. But why did we see a cop car with a Decepticon symbol? I thought Decepticons weren’t cars?
Okay, so am I a dork or what? Discuss…June 10, 2006 at 3:12 pm #11419
Yeah I remember them being “transformed” into earthly vehicles and whatnot, I’m sure the movie will skip that part or glaze over it as quick as possible. What I want to know is what will they do with Megatron, I mean they can’t make him a handgun. I’m thinking a tank or something.
To be honest, with geeks our age its likely we will have such high expectations that anything they do will fall short. I mean we have all made the movie in our heads several times over by now, how are they gonna improve on that?!
Oh wait I know!…..They’ll play that song “You got the touch”
Just don’t fuck with the transforming sound…its like a lightsaber sound.
Leave. It. Alone.June 10, 2006 at 4:10 pm #11404
Yeah, not only should they play “The Touch”, but they should play the Mark Wahlberg version from Boogie Nights. Man, that was painful.June 10, 2006 at 7:05 pm #11400ElNachoParticipant
hahah ok wtf. i thought transformers were these toys 5 year olds played with, and then mouthed “transformers, robots in disguise” for the tv cameraJune 10, 2006 at 8:19 pm #11411digitaltopiaParticipant
The Transformers of today are nothing like what they once were, when they were originally out. And most of us remember the way they were originally, when they were popular across all age groups. Those are the ones we’re referring to.June 10, 2006 at 8:29 pm #11418
They were also made of metal and not cheap-ass plastic
