    dark of the moon toys are out

    I'll probably buy Roadbuster at some point but I don't really care otherwise

    I guess there's that cartoon, but it's kind of dumb, plus they killed the rock in the first episode

    re: dark of the moon, the video game

    it is the least terrible of all three movie games

    the multiplayer is bare bones and it is missing some features from wfc and also it is kind of hard but that may be because I suck

    rent it, or wait for a price drop

    The megatron prime is a bad model isn't it. In the sense that it's an annoying transformation and he doesn't stand well in robot form?

    I think a big reason is that the Prime seems to take itself much more seriously.

    Like it's aiming at an older demographic, or something.

    Animated was a neat show, but it was just too dang silly for me, more often than not.

    Yeah.

    Forget where I read it, but it's true. Going for a light tone makes it easier and more effective when you decide to go terrifying and brutal.

    I mean, Animated had:

    PTSD, being trapped in your body entirely paralyzed, body horror, an innocent man wrongly accused who went insane in prison, the most effective Megatron, and, right.

    The good guys mass produced child soldiers.

    I love it, and MAN it got dark when it wanted.

    Prime's awesome. Don't let the 5-part pilot turn you off, as admittedly it's pretty bad in comparison to the rest of the show.

    I still watch Prime but haven't been able to get excited about it. I really dislike the kids, they just annoy me to no end no matter what they're doing.

    And it's dark. I mean literally. Everything is done in these murky tones that just aren't very enticing to look at. Plus, none of the settings or locales have been particularly interesting, it's mostly either taken place in Autobots' bland bunker, Decepticons' sparse, grey ship, or brown, rocky terrain.

    And why oh why did they decide to keep BB's stupid no talking bit from the movies? Hey I know! Let's strip away any personality that he could have possibly had! That will help!

    Ratchet is basically Animated Ratchet but less interesting, Optimus is all leadery and that's fine, Bulkhead's pretty much just Bulkhead from Animated, except without his interactions with BB he takes a hit. Arcee was a fine addition, she's been my favorite Autobot. On the Decepticon side, Starscream's been pretty good, and so has Breakdown. Megatron's been good and evil, and hopefully the dark energon plot picks up, because that's been fairly interesting.

    A character doesn't need a voice to be entertaining. I'll admit he doesn't have a very distincitve personality, but he tends to be one of the more enjoyable autobots, especially in the fight sequences.

    I've found him to be very entertaining despite not having a voice. I thought Animated Bumblebee was just annoying.

    He is basically the exact same character with a different voice actor, and he sounds slightly less old.

    I like him.

    He's also less of a bumbling idiot. :P

    Overall I think Prime is a much more action-driven show, which is just as well since it's timeslot has fewer restrictions on what it could and couldn't do. A Saturday morning show nowadays just cannot go very far with violence, which in my opinion really hurt Animated's potential.

    Also, Animated's Optimus was kind of a downplayed asshole, but I don't really feel like going into that at the moment.

    Maybe I'm kind of the odd one out here, but I really liked the pilot. Particular the parts with Optimus and Megatron at odds.

    I picked up the novelization of Dark of the Moon because it was cheap and I figured it would have more robot stuff than the movies, which are sorely lacking. Also so I could find out what happens before the movie comes out.

    It turned out to be pretty good; I enjoyed it. I won't say what happens, but I was like "whoa dude, holy cow" and stuff. It made me want to see the movie, which I didn't have any interest in before. I read it so I wouldn't have to see the movie, so it's telling that it ended up changing my mind.
