Re: The official G1 purist thread.
The movie isn't based on G1. It's a synthesis of the whole of TF's. After all movie Scorponok is in now way based on G1 Scorponok (that honour falls to the Energon version). He's based on Beast Wars Scorponok.
I for one welcome our new red flamed, fish-lipped savior. May he always defend us from the scrap metal Devil.
