I think it's pronounced "batman incorporated"...

Batmans is more fun to say but i think, sadly, its batmen

@  Bass X0 : (23 February 2017 - 02:36 PM)

Is the plural of Batman Batmans or Batmen?

@  Vexwing : (23 February 2017 - 12:32 PM)

I'd be excited if it were within the realm of affordability.

Anyone else excited about that Prime 1 Studio BW Megatron? It looks amazing

@  unitremover : (22 February 2017 - 09:36 PM)

I haven't been up there in a while but one of the Walmarts around here still has AOE deluxes out. Some of the CVSs do too.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 February 2017 - 09:34 PM)

It's been the same thing in local stores for ages up here.

@  BlackMax : (22 February 2017 - 09:33 PM)

One near me is the same - I swear they have over forty Deluxes there, all from many months ago.

@  Telly : (22 February 2017 - 07:43 PM)

my walmart finally filled those empty tr pegs. and of course its a mix of waves one and 2 (wave 1.5?)

@  Steevy Maximus : (22 February 2017 - 07:10 PM)

My Walmart had a Generations Rattrap hanging for the past 2 and a half years, and in trying to clearance it, inadvertently marked down the entire Generations Deluxe assortment.

@  Steevy Maximus : (22 February 2017 - 07:09 PM)

A shelf warmer's ultimate revenge: being around long enough that in trying to clearance it...the store marks down the entire SKU!

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 07:59 AM)

Eh, he would've gotten beaten up if the government sent just about anyone.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 07:56 AM)

Regardless, literally everything I've ever seen (and a lot on tfwiki) attributes Megatron's slide into violence to Whirl beating him up while in custody. Maybe not like flicking a switch but Megatron's line "You made me. You taught me words were weightless without force" kinda spells it out.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 07:38 AM)

I'm not sure if there even was a specific turning point, but he didn't seem kill happy yet when he was with Terminus, and that was after Whirl beating him up.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 07:24 AM)

It was also before any sort of uprising or him actually doing much of anything.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 07:20 AM)

I mean, the whole thing didn't start as "the great war". It was an uprising that eventually morphed into a the war.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 07:17 AM)

Yeah, of course it's before the war, Whirl beating Megatron while he was in custody was the tipping point that made Megatron turn violent.

@  RC85747 : (22 February 2017 - 07:08 AM)

hascon

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 05:12 AM)

But the thing with Whirl was before he started the war.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 03:28 AM)

Like so many awful things in that universe, it's basically Whirl's fault.

@  Telly : (22 February 2017 - 12:51 AM)

for about 10 minutes. then he got all kill happy

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 February 2017 - 10:27 PM)

Wouldn't IDW Megatron kind of count since his main reason for instigating the Great War was to overthrow the Functionist social order?

@  Black Hat : (21 February 2017 - 04:05 PM)

(I haven't read IDW at all please don't sue me)

@  Black Hat : (21 February 2017 - 04:04 PM)

Tyrest? He was chief justice, even :p

@  Bass X0 : (21 February 2017 - 03:24 PM)

I kinda want an Autobot to have the function of "Social Justice Warrior".

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 February 2017 - 12:20 PM)

Even we have limits.

@  Robowang : (21 February 2017 - 12:18 PM)

Good. But let's agree not to do one for Tecumseh.

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 February 2017 - 12:12 PM)

Shitting Bull.

or spending a lot of time taking a Squatto?

@  Robowang : (21 February 2017 - 11:49 AM)

I'm kinda disappointed how they messed up Legion Bisk's hands so that his front wheels can't roll.

@  RichardT1977 : (19 February 2017 - 12:45 AM)

One of the Walmarts near me has some pegs full of Wave 1 TR deluxes.

I mentioned Hot Rod in particular because the "french accent" thing indicates he at least for sure has dialogue, which not every TF might.

Can't listen to anything at work, anyone reckon they can, uh, earball the voice from the trailer as being Gemma Chan? That'd be an easy test.

It sounds sufficiently like Gemma Chan to me.

No credit for Winston Churchill though? Michael Bay said he would be a "big hero" in it...

Maybe they'd let him emote, too. I love the guy but his voice in the 07 game sounds like they just went with his first read.

I'm intrigued by the suggestion that Quintessa isn't a voice role. Guess we're looking at a pretty humanoid alien.

 

I hope not. If we get a Quintesson in the movie, we might actually get a toy of them. So it would be really good if they at least somewhat resemble the five-faced slime of the nebula.

The three things that are bugging me about this film are:

1: Humanity is butchering all Transformers again because 'hey they all deserve it' apparently.

2: if the Dinobots get slaughtered by angry humans then (to me) it feels like a farce even introducing them in AOE.

3: The 'only one world will survive' setup. I mean, possibly evil controlled Optimus attempts to save Cybertron at the cost of Earth. Earth will win obviously.

I know some of that sounds really harsh. I'm not trying to be. It will be interesting to see where they are going with the mythology. However, i guess i've just had enough of humanity hates all TFs, up to and including all the ones who've died trying to save them.

This will be our first sign as to if that writer's room amounts to anything. I share a lot of your concerns, especially since every movie they cut the trailers a certain way and insist the film will have all this lore and character development and instead we just get the same movie reheated yet again.

 

The catch 22 is they have 4 movies of saying that what Bay does is hugely successful. As a concept the writer's room offers hope but it's not like this is a case like the DC movies where they had to change tactics because the movies were bombing. TF movies make crazy money and the majority of people paying it don't think too hard about the films until the next one pops up three years later.

 

I don't expect any real significant quality swing until such time as the films start bombing and they have to actually really put work in. And with AOE showing Bay is totally happy to obnoxiously whore these films out to an emerging global super economy, I doubt that will be on the table anytime soon.

Given that the anti-Transformers unit in this film includes goodies like Lennox, I have to assume they're a "stop Transformer attacks" team rather than a "hunt down and execute Transformers" team. Like, Grimlock might've gone and wrecked a bunch of stuff like a big numpty and that's why they've gone to take him down, that kind of thing.

Honestly, the simple fact that this film is actively continuing plot threads established in the previous one gives me a lot of hope for the storytelling.
