    That's a sweet photo.

    I said this before in the Bumblebee thread, but I like the movie Optimus better.

    I'm not saying I don't have any respect for G1 cartoons, I do, but movie Optimus just looks awesome. :woot:

    Based on his commentary, it seems that Liam Neeson was Bay's original choice for Optimus Prime. As glad as I was that Cullen was brought back, had he for whatever reason been unavailable, Neeson would've been a good alternative.

    Okay, now I'm glad I didn't listen to the entire commentary. That would have pissed me off! :word:

    Liam Neeson!?!? :wow: Nah, wouldn't fit...Cullen is Optimus Prime, nobody else.

    However, I did learn that Megan Fox is from Tennessee....near where I work!! :hyper: That was some useful commentary knowledge.

    Didn't he say Neesons mannerisms/personality/ body language is what he had the animators try to emulate for Prime? I could have swore that's what he said.

    StormSailor is the true fan as s/he named them all. I just put the names and the picture together.

    Lucky.....*mumbles incoherently*

    I would love to touch it....get in it....lay in the bed..watch the TV....gah! One can dream, right?

    Interesting.......but I don't think I could have stood hearing the voice of the Lion from Narnia in as OP's voice. Nah, wouldn't have cut it for me.

    not really appreciation here.

    does that piss anyone off a little when hearing optimus said:"Bumblebee will die in vain if we don't accomplish our mission."

    I was like sitting in cinema thinking:"Come on, he's just captured, not dead yet." and I am still a little pissed off about this line of op. :(

    Well, it confused me, not necessarily pissed me off. I guess that was OP's way of getting his troops ready for battle. Maybe.

    Besides, I knew they wouldn't kill the Bee. That would just piss a lot of people off. :word:

    I agree, i still love the G1 design, but have little to no qualms about how he was presented in the movie.

    I think in terms of the movie the Autobots didnt know WHAT would happen to BB, With the agressiveness of his capture by the humans, its quite possible Prime assumed they would kill him.
