i remember the missile gears malfuctioned a lot. damn thing once shot me in the middle of the night.

@  Fenix Twilight : (17 December 2017 - 06:54 PM)

Just transformed Unicron probably for the first time since I got him in 03, fun stuff. Still would like a new version but since they just did another release last year I guess we're stuck with that mold.

@  Shrug : (17 December 2017 - 06:16 PM)

Yeah, I think that might work on the red one, if I can find a neon enough yellow

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 December 2017 - 06:10 PM)

How about neon yellow/green? Like on Krok?

@  Shrug : (17 December 2017 - 05:45 PM)

I'm dealing with a black/grey robot and a red/black robot.

@  Shrug : (17 December 2017 - 05:44 PM)

I'm thinking of making some figures "G2" with minor paint additions: a little panel lining, probably. What colors in small amounts make you think G2?

@  Nevermore : (17 December 2017 - 05:41 PM)

Don't worry, it was grammatically correct, it just wasn't "fluent". :)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 December 2017 - 03:29 PM)

Scheiße.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 December 2017 - 03:22 PM)

Damn. I initially thought of writing "Herzliche Glückwünsche", but I thought that didn't fit because we don't know each other in real life. But I forgot to check for quantity after dropping "Herzliche".

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 December 2017 - 03:14 PM)

It'll be nice when they finally perfect universal translation algorithms

@  Nevermore : (17 December 2017 - 02:43 PM)

In German, you only pluralize "Glückwunsch" when it's several people congratulating someone. As in, "I received everyone's congratulations."

@  Nevermore : (17 December 2017 - 02:42 PM)

That's actually a hypercorrect literal translation that immediately reveals you as a non-native speaker.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 December 2017 - 01:04 PM)

Glückwünsche!

@  ILoveDinobot : (17 December 2017 - 12:34 PM)

Grats Nevermore.

@  Shrug : (17 December 2017 - 12:13 PM)

That's awesome, congrats!

@  WorkbenchManiac : (17 December 2017 - 11:14 AM)

Congratulations!

@  Nevermore : (17 December 2017 - 11:11 AM)

And top top it all off, my employer will offer a one-off bonus for moving to permanent late shift, and another annual bonus if I stay on permanent late shift for an entire year.

@  Nevermore : (17 December 2017 - 11:10 AM)

That's basically my personal dream shift.

@  Nevermore : (17 December 2017 - 11:09 AM)

No more getting up early. Also, every work week will be from Monday to Friday, with the weekends off.

@  Nevermore : (17 December 2017 - 11:09 AM)

Next year I will have the option for permanent late shift.

@  Nevermore : (17 December 2017 - 11:09 AM)

Soon I'll be free!

Did I miss something, or did the whole movie pass without

Spoiler

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 December 2017 - 02:18 AM)

TBH, the use of the word "boudoir" seemed a bit more out of place to me than the humour... has a non-English Terran language ever been established as existing in Star Wars before?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 December 2017 - 01:28 AM)

It's not like it's a big deal anyway. I mean, anything with Aurebesh in it is demonstrably non-canon, because there's no X in Aurebesh so X-Wings wouldn't be called X-Wings, right?

@  unitremover : (16 December 2017 - 11:48 PM)

That said, I do think it is really weird that

@  unitremover : (16 December 2017 - 11:47 PM)

Yeah, TLJ felt a lot more mindful about when it broke out the quips/jokes than I think the Marvel movie comparison implies

@  2017 : (16 December 2017 - 09:35 PM)

I'm fine with the humour because the rest of the universe feels legit, and it's not ten quips a minute like those bloody Marvel movies.

@  Waspinator : (16 December 2017 - 09:22 PM)

Less than 3 hours to go, now

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 December 2017 - 08:11 PM)

Also, it can't be worse than those awful "sarcastic" jokes in the beginning of AotC that were meant to establish a camaraderie between Anakin and Obi-Wan where it was clear that none existed.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 December 2017 - 08:09 PM)

Doesn't sound like something I'll be bothered by; movies have to change at least a little bit with the times

@  Waspinator : (16 December 2017 - 07:59 PM)

Yeah, there was some sarcastic humor that wasn't really present in the classic movies

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 December 2017 - 02:00 PM)

I didn't have a problem with it. But it DOES skew a bit more "modern" in ways the humor of prior films didn't, short maybe Rogue One

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 December 2017 - 01:20 PM)

I'm staying spoiler-free until I see it tonight, but a number of people seem really angry at the humour in the film

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 December 2017 - 01:19 PM)

I've already noticed some backlash against it over on blu-ray.com, but a lot of it seems to stem from anger about the Disney/Fox deal

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.
