:)I don't suppose they want to redo the movie(cartoon) in full CGI as that is just excellent:).
Megatron isn't giving Optimus any nasty diseases now Kup as per your request:p:D

it wasn't quite MP Megatron, but parts were certainly inspired by it. :) I liked the G1 toy-accurate yellow eyes on Megs. :D

I think they changed the fight details. No energo-knife thing, no Hot Rod. Wasn't on Autobot City either.

But still looks great!

It looks nice. At first I thought it was CGI from that Japanese PS2 game which recreated that battle too, but clearly it's new. Very shiny.

Who else thinks we were lied to when we were told that the G1 designs do not carry over well to CGI renderings for the big screen?

Dude... try doing TF cosplay and see how well you can move in a more 'traditional/G1' style body before saying that. :) Believe me, blocky G1 designs severely restrict movement like a mofo. This animation still cheats like in TF cartoons and comics (notice how Megatron's shoulders dislocate themselves whenever he has to reach one arm across to the other or when both arms are spread out over his head? Or how Prime's chest magically shrinks when he clasps his hands together? <--these are just two examples of numerous animation cheats that I've noticed in this vid). And in a photorealistic backdrop on a theatrical movie screen for a general audience, that kind of animation cheating just looks too cheesy.

Yes, there's a bit of cheating in the movie too - especially with the transformation... ultimately with Transformers you have to cheat to some degree because all those robot components have to go somewhere in vehicle mode, and all those internal vehicle components (e.g.: seats, engine etc) have to go somewhere in robot mode... so yeah, there's some "mass-shunting" style cheating when they transform. But overall the movie models don't cheat anywhere near as much as in TF TV and comic book series. When a TF crosses his arms in the movie, there's no warping of the chest or dislocation/morphing of the shoulders.
