nah, the appeal of giant transforming robots was always greater than soldeirs and terrorists shooting at each other with high tech weaponry.

As long as the visual and sound effects were impressive Transformers was always a sure fire hit.

Now there's an iconic, memorable Megatron unlike the insectiod bionicle bayformer version. He looks like a nazi soldier with a giant bazooka mounted on his arm. Classic.

Because Gundams look like Transformers. It's the other way around.

Indeed -- yet another fan design that looks a LOT better than what we're getting in the movie.

True, but the 1979 Gundam robots were more simple in design than Transformers. The complicated transforming Gundams didn't come along until 1985, after Transformers.

Nothing wrong with looking like Gundam. Beats the hell out of bionicle-crumpled-foil-bots.

Bayformers are ugly as hell.

I bet in ILM's CGI it would be wonderful.

This is just an example of how much better G1 can look vs the animated series:

Still box designs.

"Bayformers" works perfectly, imo. I have no problem with it.

I hate to sound like a "hater," but it's just so damn dated, lame, non real world functional, and obviously designed to draw easier

and awesome only form a old school western perspective

I'll see your lame imagery and raise you 4 awesome (incoherent) pictures
