god damn it

god fucking damn it

i was all set to hate this and then optimus prime rode a giant robot dragon

That said, why the fuck do they keep insisting on giving him a mouth. Not having a mouth was what made him look so badass in the first place.

That looks more like a giant robot t-rex.

Which is even better.
のほも is such a good word?? the concept is kind of hard to fully get across in translation, but basically it means a feeling of pure, deep, platonic affection, and i think thats beautiful

It's about time the king showed up in those movies. Does this mean there will also be Constructicons?

Ocksi, the Constructicons were in the second movie. Devastator had truck nutz. It was not their greatest moment.

Also, yes, the dragon/t-rex guy is Grimlock. The two-headed dragon/pterodactyl/bird thing is Swoop. The green one with the jacket could be Roadbuster; there were rumors that the Wreckers would be coming back, although the only officially confirmed returning Autobots are Prime and Bumblebee.

I feel like I should have known that, but the second Transformers movie was third time I ever fell asleep in a movie theater(and the only time I've done so sober).

Should I watch either the second or the third Transformers? I watched the first and it was ok if kind of a blur both visually and plotwise

The second one is terrible and damn-near unwatchable. The third is okay, but it does have Leonard Nimoy as an old-ass fire truck, so there's that. I doubt either of them will be required viewing before AoE; the Transformers movies have never been big on overarching plot.

It's funny because the third movie spends like 2/3 of its screentime going "Hey remember this thing that happened in Transformers 2? It's not important anymore."

Ohai Transformers thread!

(There is actually another Transformers thread, because I got confused by the lack of context in this thread's title. Admins, if you are interested in merging the one post in that thread with the 14 posts in this one, that is an option.)

I finally got around to writing a couple blog posts on IDW's Transformers comics, as I've been threatening to do for the past year. Look for them tomorrow morning and Wednesday morning. So far they are just "here's what you should read" lists without much editorializing on why I love the damn things so much, but I figured that was good for now since Comixology is having one of its periodic Transformers sales. (Sneak preview: start with Megatron Origin.)

I expect that I will have much more to say in future posts. Maybe Thursday, or maybe I'll talk about something else on Thursday.
