    Oh come on, stop complaining about his lips... They'll either look better once in final full-HD form, or you'll just have to come to accept them.

    I feel like I live in a parallel dimension. Whenever I read any posts about Prime, it was people complaining about the rumor that he was supposed to get a mouth. People hated the idea.

    Damn great tv spot, about prime I think he looks great, the voice... well he sounds deep but its not a bad thing it doesn't really sound like cullen but bay will probably come with an excuse saying that cullen's voice needed to be altered a bit to sound even more alienlike or some nonsense explanation. The mouth/lips well I though it would actually look worse, the thing is that his mouth should be higher not where his chin is supposed to be. But in general he looks great, just rise those lips and make them move smoother, or just discard the hold lips idea. But guys don't have high hopes because bay probably won't change the mouth part.

    I liked it but these are my thoughts.


    PROS

    Detail is amazing
    lips do move well
    Cullen sounds really manlly

    CONS

    lips are on his chin
    Cullen almost sounds not like Cullen
    nose and lips bug me
    something about his eyes don't feel right not sure why maybe it's that they look too human like

    I think the face plate would have looked way better but I can live with the lips.

    But am I the only one who thinks that Optimus looks a little like ET.
    While watching it that's what I kept thinking about.
    I guess it's just the way his lips move and how his head is shaped, kind of long and fat looking.

    Overall I liked it though, I think they changed Cullen's voice way too much I mean it already sound like a robot before.
    Now it sounds cool but too deep and not like Cullen.

    If you look closely you can clearly see his mouth is not where his chin is. There is what looks like a chinguard under his mouth covering/acting as his chin.

    If there was HD version, you would be able to see it more clearer.

    I don't know, I just think the lips aspect of it makes them less robotic. One of the things I always thought was cool about Prime was the lack of the mouth, and now even that's gone... :csad:

    Have to ? Have to ?!

    I - or anybody else - have to do nothing.

    And that's exactly what I choose. Zero support, zero profit for them from me.

    When I heard that Cullen was going to voice Prime it was a happy day...but it felt like Bay was just throwing us a bone.

    When I saw Prime on the Empire magazine cover...it was also a great day but he is the only recognizable Transformer.

    Now Cullen's voice (in this clip) has been altered so much that it could have been anybody with a deep voice...and Prime's lips don't look good to me. Like someone earlier said, why go through the trouble of animating lips when they weren't wanted in the first place. The bots that originally had mouths no longer have them...and the most POPULAR character that didn't have a mouth they gave one.

    I think that line is from a different scene it was not in sync with the lips movement.

    Fine then, you'll miss out on an awesome film (with maybe some flaws) that pays homage to an original series I know you love... i highly doubt you're not going to go see it just because of the lips :whatever:

    How does it pay homage? How has this production respected the original material at all?

    Oh, no. I'm not going to see it because of pretty much everything in it.

    By the way, you mixed up the terms "homage" and "farce".

    Ugh... Fanboy complaining...

    Prime sounds fine, you even see the cartoon? He sounds the same.

    The mouth thing? Meh, I'll live with it. There has been like 7 Transformer cartoons and 20 toy series, and some of you still think it's 1987.

    The main thing I'm not looking forward to seeing about Transformers, honestly, are you fans complaining about some of this stuff. I really think half the time you really expect stuff that was never there to begin with.

    Said my peace...
