Yeah, but all the women would just topple over face first, since no human could have those exact Barbie proportions. And plus, I don't think it would work well as porn - Ken has no genitalia!

It'll probably just be an action movie with little dramatic realism, and that's kinda sad because wouldn't it be cool to actually sympathize with the characters? To do that, they have to get away from the Decepticons being evil, and that's something they won't do.

I was really hoping Frank Welker (the original Megatron) would reprise the role. I used to make my throat sore impersonating him as a kid.

Did Frank Welker voice every cartoon character ever?

Well, he and Casey Kasum. Now, on with the countdown...

So. It's about ... things that ... turn into other things?

Um. Sounds like a killer plot!

In all seriousness, though, I confess to being a bit baffled about why this movie is so anticipated. Or why it's being made.

Is it like a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles kind of thing? Was Transformers a comic book or something before they were toys? Or is it just a movie based on toys?
Basically it's the same phenomenon as Ninja Turtles only much bigger because it has impacted male kids of that age group like no other carton has. It was all due to the 1984-1987 cartoon that got kids interested in the characters. Go Bots had the same premise but it wasn't nearly as successful. Toy company Hasbro was on a killer rolling streak, inventing and promoting GI Joe and My Little Pony the same way as Transformers. I think they shared some of the same writers, too.

It makes no rational sense. If one rewatches Transformers as a cartoon, it's embarrassing, but occasionally funny:
Check out this clip collection of humorous scenes from Transformers. I was way too young to understand all the references to drunkenness and mental illness. Some aren't really funny at all, but others are kinda neat.

Actually it's Casey Kasem; he's of Iranian decent.
I heard Scatman Crothers (Jazz) death reported in the news, so he must have been a big deal.
Hot Rod was voiced by Brat Packer Judd Nelson;

Unicron was probably Orson Welles' last jobs before he died.

By the way, I don't obsess over this stuff anymore; I just memorized all the names when I was 10 and got the movie on video.

Was that the guy from The Breakfast Club? I only remember the guy's name becuase of the Transformers; he was also in a 1989 NBC TV movie called The Billionaires Boys' Club, in which they kidnap some stereotypical Arab guy and seal him in a box.

I've only watched a few minutes and already I'm extremely embarrassed. The dialogue is even worse than I remember, which is understandable, but I actually used to engage in play fighting based on the drama from these scenes because I thought they were so cool and dramatic!

I'm glad you're enjoying them, uberbeaver. I don't know how that person managed to put up clips that size; I heard they don't post anything over 10 minutes on youtube.com.
