I've had to do fix fics for my own fix fics.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 May 2021 - 02:19 PM)

"Fix fics" are their own entire category of fanfiction.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 May 2021 - 01:32 PM)

Is fanfic "fixing" an author's story? (Often it is, I think.)

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 May 2021 - 12:15 PM)

I don't think people repainting and such are nessicarly "Fixing" a toy, just modding it to their likes. The problem is when they go around claiming to have "Fixed' it, that I feel it becomes a problem.

@  CORVUS : (17 May 2021 - 08:41 AM)

"I was gonna buy some Toyhax labels for Earthrise Auto-Whatsit, but since I'd be disrespecting the artistic expression of the designers, I think I'll just forget the whole thing."

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 May 2021 - 06:41 AM)

Like, in general, not going into specific bands or covers. Because I could point out plenty of repainted toys I didn't like as much as the original, too.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 May 2021 - 06:39 AM)

Is a musician covering a song "fixing" it?

@  Nevermore : (17 May 2021 - 05:15 AM)

So, then, isn't redecoing or retooling an existing toy also "fixing" someone else's art?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 May 2021 - 10:07 PM)

A toy is not on the same level as a piece of drawn art, true, but it is 100% an entertainment product.

@  Nevermore : (16 May 2021 - 05:05 PM)

A toy is an object of utility, Comparing that to a piece of drawn art is grossly ignoring the difference between the two. Also, you didn't answer my questions. Try again.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 May 2021 - 04:25 PM)

Part of the difference is that those covers are primarily one person's art. Sure, you probably have an inker and a colorist, but the lines and composition are one person. A toy however is a team design at pretty much all levels.

@  Cyoti : (16 May 2021 - 03:52 PM)

toymaking is a collaborative process, you have to make compromises and factories are going to get things wrong

@  tigerhawk : (16 May 2021 - 03:43 PM)

Earthrise had a few holes, Runamuck's legs YIKES!

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 May 2021 - 03:37 PM)

I doubt that say, the designer for Kingdom Cheetor was happy about every bit of unpainted plastic on it.

@  Bass X0 : (16 May 2021 - 03:28 PM)

J Scott Campbell recently had his Spiderman cover "fixed" by someone online. A few weeks ago, someone on twitter "fixed" someone's Sonic the Hedgehog fan art where Sonic, Tails and Knuckles were drawn as humans. Both times and other times, the "fixer" gets called out and criticised as you shouldn't go around "fixing" someone else's art because its rude and disrespectful to the original artist. And I was thinking isn't "fixed your s*** for ya" exactly what toy customisers do?

@  Nevermore : (16 May 2021 - 02:28 PM)

Have you ever changed your car in any way whatsoever compared to the factory configuration, or are you leaving the designer's art unchanged in that case as well?

@  CORVUS : (16 May 2021 - 02:28 PM)

It's best not to ponder it too hard.

@  Nevermore : (16 May 2021 - 04:16 AM)

Bass X0, I really wonder sometimes how you come up with these random tangents apropos of nothing.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 May 2021 - 04:11 AM)

It's collaborative art.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 May 2021 - 04:07 AM)

Toys are subject to budget constraints, so its not like customizing would ruin the designer's vision or whatever.

@  Bass X0 : (16 May 2021 - 03:38 AM)

Isn't customising a toy just "fixing other people's art"?

I rewatched the movie in 3D a while ago and I swear to god at a point in one of the car-scenes Memo's hair was literally the only thing in the shot sticking out of the screen in three dimensions. Pretty wild.

It seems today the internet was hit with a wall of sequel confirmations and sequel confirmation denials from different actual sources and then news outlets recycling the claims as they desire, while others try to deduce the truth on the presumption that the decision making process is more cohesive than it really is.

In these instances it's best to ignore everything, since a slightly ealier belief that Bumb2ebee is happening won't change the observer experience when it does (or doesn't) happen.

Maybe we'll get Bumblebee, or Optimus Prime, or Transformers 6, or Transformers DOFP, or Cybertron Adventures, it doesn't matter right now when we're still wondering if the home release will have an extended edition with the deleted scene where Charlie and Bumblebee kiss.
Woooo!

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

Seems like there might have been scenes missing even from the first cut. IMDB has a bunch of credits for Otis's karate teacher and fellow students, who don't appear in either version of the film, as far as I can tell.

Could be made up, though at least one actor's website corroborated him being in the film.

My gripe about the movie is that the Decepticons don't get named again.

That said, I'd love it if someone made a cut where :

"That crazy red and black car? Her name is Crasher. And that violent blue copter dude, let's call him Coptur."

When they have they were usually featuring early unfinished CGI or were just unused animation tests. Bay tends to use everything that is usable instead of doing half measures. But who knows, maybe Travis Knight will have more content of that form in showable form.

The thing about the Transformers is that they cost way, way, way too much to actually render out and then not use. So just about everything that ends up having effects done ends up in the final version.

The one exception that jumps out at me is the scene of Bumblebee and Tessa dancing in the AOE trailer, which looked pretty much finished but wasn't in the movie.

There are probably more or less finished human scenes that are cut, but I can't imagine anybody here is dying to see those.

(Or maybe not. Bay is notorious for bringing films in on budget, and you don't do that by shooting a bunch of crap you end up not using.)

From what the guy that saw the March test screening said, there's two things removed from the cut he saw:

 

- Alot of more evil and dark John Cena scenes, some of Cena's scenes in general were reshot to make him less intense and agressive than he is in the original film even though they kept the context more or less the same.

 

-There's a shot of a G1-ish Megatron in Hooverdam while John Cena's character is talking to other S7 people, and the S7 staff agree that they can't tell Shatter and Dropkick they have him.

 

Otherwise he said the final film has alot more NEW added stuff than it has removed stuff.

I'm ultimately glad it wasn't in the final movie, but I'd like to see the frozen Megatron scene as a home release extra just because I'm curious to take a look at his design and see what was done to G1 him up.

I doubt it was a clever blend of G1 and Movie Megatron or anything. Judging by the design ethos prevalent through most of the rest of the movie, it was just G1 Megatron but ineptly modeled in 3 days.
