Transformers |OT| Transform and roll out...

Rewatching the TF animated movie...
Yeah man this is a 1 hour-ish advertisment for the movie
but man does it have it's awesome moments.

EDIT: Man I forgot Optimus did an Uppercut on Megs.
Shoryuken-ing before Ryu made it popular hah.

EDIT2: "Me Grimlock say execute them!'

They could do it with their voodoo designers.

But yeah, Bruticus, Menasor, Superion, Computron would be infinitely more easier.

The dream would be MP Predaking. I'LL PAY ANYTHING TAKARA
They could absolutely do it, but Bruticus is by far the most popular combiner in Japan for some reason, so he'd get the nod first.

Just to point out, since it hasn't been linked in this thread yet...

Really That Good: Transformers The Movie
And it's NeoGAF thread.

I really like how MovieBob starts out with an explanation far better than anything I've been able to verbalize, about why it doesn't really matter if Transformers is just a toy commercial.
 
Is the transscript of Wreck-gar's dialog from the TF movie available anywhere?
he has the best lines in the movie. How did they even go about making him talk that way?

Heh, I just watched that yesterday, it popped on my youtube recommendations. The opening is really great stuff, but I had to fast forward quite a bit of the actual review because too much of it was restating the same things several times.

They're just using an exaggerated flanging effect on the voice, I believe. All the TFs in the cartoon had some kind of vocal processing effect put on to make them sound "like robots," some more than others (Soundwave, for instance), and Wreck-Gar's voice is another variation on it from some clever sound engineer.

Yeah the last time an official toy of Ultra Magnus featured the "inner robot puts on armor" gimmick was actually the G1 toy, so I'm finding it hard to feel too bad for Minimus on this one.
 
So, yeah, there are pics of the Terrorcons (who look mostly awesome except a blocky Hun-Grrr) and a teaser of Divebomb's wings which DWARF the other figures. Predaking is going to be HUGE. And expensive. And awesome. And HUGE. Glad I resisted getting the knockoffs.

I ordered the knockoff Predaking like a week back. The HasTak version will no doubt be awesome, but also cost thrice as much once you factor in shipping to Spain.

Speaking of knockoffs, and I know this is perhaps not the most moral thing to do, but I'm mighty tempted to wait for an oversize knockoff of the Dinobot combiner, like they did with Defensor. Having a Volcanicus that doesn't look like a midget next to Predaking, where each dinobot is Voyager-sized and Grimlock is a leader, is so fucking tempting.

So i take it there arent any non mobile transformers games in the works atm?
Not that I know of, and it hurts so much after WfC, FoC, and Devastation. :(

I feel it's unfair to call third party stuff knockoffs considering how much effort is put into them.

I want to know how Perceptor could betray BFF Brainstorm.
As an atheist Perceptor has no morality.
He was secretly jealous.

No, I'm meaning knockoffs of the characters that HasTak spent 33 years building a fanbase for...
That's not what a knockoff is. A knockoff is a duplication of an existing mold by a company that didn't make said mold, usually using cheaper materials so they can sell it for a much lower price than the original product. Third party original designs are not knockoffs. There are, however, knockoffs made of those third party original designs pretty regularly now, because pirates gonna pirate.
