Transformers Movie Debate Begins Now!
Michael Bay does everything big. Big movies. Big budgets. Big action. So it should be no surprise that his official website is home to the biggest and best Transformers: The Movie images we’ve seen so far. We’re talking lots of really high-res stuff here.
So let’s get started on the inevitable debate: Do you like the way these Transformers look?
I grew up watching the Transformers cartoon and reading the comics and buying the toys and having the bed sheets and eating the cereal and wearing the Halloween costumes…so I feel a certain fondness for the classic look and style for Optimus and Megatron. BUT – I also understand that when you try and make the robots look just like the cartoon in a live action movie, things tend to look silly.
I’m OK with these designs…for now. Yeah, it’s hard to tell where their features are, but I’m taking into account that these are static images. The footage I’ve seen of them moving on screen look pretty amazing (Transformers on fire + explosions on a freeway = amazing). If the action in this movie is anywhere near as awesome as I think it’s going to be, then I don’t care that these guys don’t look like the classic Autobots and Decepticons. I’m thinking a lot of you may disagree with that though…
