After the season finale where RM Corp found a way to make thinking Bots, I was hoping for a continuation of the story where Paradim learned the hard way the downside of Bots that can say, "No."

@  Rycochet : (28 September 2016 - 09:40 AM)

I liked Phantom 2040 more.

@  Blues : (27 September 2016 - 05:08 PM)

I LOVE BOT MASTER SO MUCH. Too bad the toys sucked. I even own jungle fiver. I love him so much, but he can barely stand on his own.

That's the 90s.

@  MEDdMI : (27 September 2016 - 04:50 PM)

Ninjzz? That's an unfortunate name.

@  Verity Carlo : (27 September 2016 - 04:44 PM)

Also I thought Fico Ossio was quite nice on Revolutions.

@  Rycochet : (27 September 2016 - 04:36 PM)

You know the planet is in a jam, a diabolical plan of only one man. Louis Leon Paradim an international punk, and his army of 3As are his piece of junk.

@  Telly : (27 September 2016 - 04:26 PM)

for the longest time i thought jungle fiver was called jungle fiBer

@  Bass X0 : (27 September 2016 - 04:21 PM)

Does anybody remember the cartoon Bots Master? I enjoyed the show but looking back on it, most of the robot designs were lame. The only cool designs were Jungle Fiver and Ninjzz although the toys were nothing compared to Transformers of course. I thought the main human characters were decent enough for a show about robots. 

@  Verity Carlo : (27 September 2016 - 02:43 PM)

Although this is odd to me, since I'm fairly sure they are/were good friends.

Social media is the worst thing to happen to fandom, you can now see people whose work you like being jerks or shills on a daily basis, which is worse than a bad interview or two.

@  Robowang : (27 September 2016 - 07:12 AM)

Dirty Jerk Warts?

@  Broadside : (27 September 2016 - 07:05 AM)

Also, I guess he hates IDW Soundwave for not being an emotionless brick like the cartoon version? Man. Any enjoyment of Animated in future is going to be tainted for me by the fact that DJW is the worst kind of boring Geewunner.

@  Broadside : (27 September 2016 - 07:04 AM)

He also hates Action Man for no apparent reason other than "I don't know who this is and I don't care to find out". Which isn't fair, because Ian is the best character in IDW.

@  Jalaguy : (27 September 2016 - 06:47 AM)

DJW was mouthing off about the art for Revolution the other day too, doesn't entirely surprise.

@  zephyrX9 : (26 September 2016 - 08:05 PM)

Sipher made a sarcastic remark about Sakamoto's skeeviness. Derrick called him an a**hole, and insulted his art, which was a low, unnecessary blow.

@  Pennpenn : (26 September 2016 - 03:49 AM)

I've had versions where the issue doesn't come up (or at least doesn't come up in the part I notice the most), but the version that got remastered for Bluray and DVD releases have it.

@  Nevermore : (26 September 2016 - 02:05 AM)

I initially misheard "flying tools of torment" as "we're flyin' into some torment".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 September 2016 - 01:08 AM)

If it's a problem with all released versions, maybe the original audio source was itself damaged?

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 09:30 PM)

I wish they'd relase a remastered version that fixed the audio and included at least had an option to have the text crawl rather than the credits at the start.

@  Telly : (25 September 2016 - 09:27 PM)

tryin to buy the movie from amazon for $20-ish. the price of it has been fluctuating like crazy. not a day has gone by that it hasnt dropped to one price and then gone back up a few hours later. never seen a price fluctuate so much

... These are very similar to Animated designs.

Seriously. The smirks? The helmet pieces as noses? The flat shiny face pieces inside the helmet frame? The general builds? They're more partsy yes, but they're clearly derived from Animated. They have to same feel as animated. They're designed with the same sensibilities as Animated.

The need for accommodation isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

Obviously there are some stylistic differences. But even Animated had the pointyness. Cybertron Starscream, Megatron, and Blitzwing. Sari's hair and extremities. Parts of Lockdown.

And look at Ratchet and Cliffjumper. Very smooth. Very heroic looking. Lots of rounded edges on Ratchet.

The only thing bothering me about Prime is how close down to the wire this thing seems to be.

They're throwing out a promo for the network, and advertising this show with it, and STILL all they have to show is the little clip from SDCC?

Normally I might not be concerned, and I'm not doom saying, but Transformers has had the unfortunate fact of rushed productions shooting themselves in the foot in the past.

But, eh. We'll see. XD;

Let me see if I can't show you.

Look, here's a outline of both Ani Bee and Prime Cliffjumper's head designs. They have to same basic structure and nearly the same shape!

It's all in how the show is written. The designs may reflect the terrible Bayformers, but I'll be happy as long as it's not written for little kids like Animated or infantile intellects like ROTF.

Ironic that you would compare a character as cute as Bumblebee to the most terrifying looking Autobot in Prime. Seriously, Cliffjumper is one grim-looking 'bot. As for the shapes, there are broad, sweeping similarities, but that's where the similarities end.

Ah well, what does it matter? We're stuck with this, like it or not. Too bad I'll probably be in my late '30s before we get another clean break.
