    Autobots, roll out!

    Sweet.

    I like the treatment they gave it. The only thing I don't like already is the fact that they lost the original "transforming" sound and replaced it with some creepy, digital noise. And, I heard Megatron is now a stealth bomber? Anyway, I definietely look forward to this one!

    Autobots forever!

    I think there is very little originality in "Hollywood", if they are resorting to making movies from 80's cartoons...

    Re: Autobots, roll out!

    I was a production manager at Transvideo in Miami, we were owned by a Spanish Language company that bought programming from around the world and translated the original languages into that of our clients, It is called layback. We did the Thundercats, Transformers and all of the Warner Brothers stuff, Superman, Pinky and the Brain, Batman etc. We also did a ton of Novelas and regular movies that we chopped into mini-series. I got to see the Warner Brothers stuff before it even aired. So, eventhough I was too old for it, I got paid to watch it.

    Re: Autobots, roll out!

    I watched Thundercats too. Cheetara was always kinda hot - in a girl cat kinda way. I had the Thundertank and Lion-O and the mummy guy whose eyes lit up and his snakey hair would come off.

    So, you won't mind if I refer to you as "The Decepticon" from now on then will you?

    *sigh*

    Does no one here remember Star Blazers? And the Argo (or Yamoto, if you watched the Japanese version)?

    Re: Autobots, roll out!

    Star Blazers? Was that some kind of Star Trek wannabe? I remember going to my grandparents house every Sunday and watching the original Star Trek with my grandpa. We'd also watch the Dukes of Hazzard, but he didn't watch that one with us.

    Re: Autobots, roll out!

    I remember Star Blazers, but I preferred Battle of the Planets. And I was watching Transformers in college, I admit it. As far as the movie, I expect a lot of action. Michael Bay is making the movie, he made The Island, Bad Boys, Pearl Harbor, Armageddon, and he was the guy behind the original Miami Vice tv series. The story might suck, but I expect a lot of explosions.

    Young whelp!

    Star Blazers was a Japanese animae that aired in the early 80's. It only ran for 3 seasons. We'll not likely see a resurgance, as the graphics that were considered cutting edge in the 80's are third rate by today's standards- at least that's the excuse the networks always give for not picking the reruns up. Could be I was just a geek in the early 80's.....

    Anyway, here's a sample of the beginning and ending credits:

    I was always torn between Cheetara, Teela from He-man, She-ra, Baroness (GIJOE), and Smurfette.

    Re: Autobots, roll out!

    When I was little I had all the girls dolls. The ones from HeMan, GI Joe, you name it, I had the girl doll.

    My favorite was one of the bad guys from GI Joe, she had red hair and skin that changed color in the sun. I think the story was her and her brothers lived in the swamp. Her brother had long dark hair...now that I think about it, he was kinda hot.
