    1. Am I the only person who thinks the character models are too gawdy and gets a headache just looking at them.

    2. Yeah, it’s like the difference between the Marvel series, and the Dreamwave series with the insane amount of details and little doodads that are attached to the robots. For fuck’s sake, make them simple!

    4. Benny Boy, what they SHOULD be shooting for is making them look even remotely like the original toys & artwork. Instead they’re going for some kind of unrealistic “future alien” robot look, which while cool in concept just sucks in reality. Perhaps if they tried to make it look like earth type robot then I’d buy it, but with all the gadgets and gidgets on there, they’re just looking cluttered. and b.a.? is that supposed to mean badly applied?

    5. Am I the only one that thinks Optimus prime looks like Gundam?

    6. Does the idea of making giant, English speaking, transforming robots realistic seem a little bit retarded to anyone else?

    7. A realistic robot from another planet would have the decency to cover it’s shame.

      Seriously though while I can appreciate their attention to detail it physically hurts my eyes to have to distinguish what is happening in the pictures and trailers I have seen so far. Maybe it would work as a 3d tangible model but on the 2d screen its hard to see.

    8. Its only hard to distinguish because its not in motion. It would be easier to understand what’s what, when it’s on an actual movie screen.

    9. I disagree Kaze, it’s going to be much worse when there’s movement. Time will tell however, and I’m well prepared to eat my words 😉

      Ever heard of the phrase “internal logic”? Basically, it means that a fictional system, while divorced from reality, has its own internal rules. If these rules are adhered to, then the audience can suspend its disbelief and become immersed in the story. If the rules are broken, then the suspension of disbelief fails and the audience is unable to feel emotional investment.

      If you’re watching a horror movei about vampires, you have to temporarily accept the idea that vampires can exist, just so you can get immersed in the story and enjoy it. If it follows its own rules, then it works and you can have fun, but let’s say we’ve established that sunlight kills vampires instantly, but one vampire character goes for a stroll at noon and no explanation is given? The audience goes “What the fuck is up with that?” and they pull out of the story. It was never believeable in the first place, of course, but this “breaking of the rules” forces you to _recognise_ that it’s against the rules.

      All this is a long-winded way of saying that, no, it’s not retarded. It is perfectly sensible to say “Okay, if there _were_ such a thing as giant, English-speaking, transforming robots, how would they look? How would the move? What would they want? What would their motives be?” If they came to earth and said “We demand you turn over the world’s supply of marshmallows!” then you may be forgiven for replying “What the FUCK?”

      If you accept, for the sake of the movie, that these machines could exist, you might think, okay, they’re machines, maybe they want a power source, or maybe they want metal. These are “realistic” things for them to want. In the same way, wanting them to look “realistic” is perfectly reasonably.

      Okay, I’ll stop now.
