How often do remakes or new versions of old favorites ever live up to the originals (or surpass them)?

With these things you can't think of them as the originals but something totally new.


That said, I'm disappointed they messed with Optimus. Sad

A lot of those adults were kids when the show originally aired.

Hence all the "OMG Michael Bay VIOLENTLY raped my childhood!" comments.


Yeah but

You don't see, like, manlove for Inspector Gadget, or The Adventures of David the Gnome, or any of that. Practically never kids shows

UNLESS

there were big fuckoff robots involved and they weren't Power Rangers.

In other news, Transformers vs Gobots, GO!

Hasbro, maker of Transformers, bought Tonka, maker of Gobots. Then used "Gobots" as a character name, then as a name for Transformer type toys for preschoolers.

Transformers win. Very Happy

Here would be my vote

I'm hoping this is all a smokescreen to put the fans off while they actually use a cab-over semi, a Beetle or somethign of the like, etc.

Oh, c'mon. You used to put your transformers into sexually compromising positions all the time too, didn't you? It was hard for a while when there was a great lack of female transformer counterparts.


Hard, but also kinda fun...

there's not that many female figurines out there, and my parents refused to buy me barbies.

This thread may be the best thing to come from the live action Transformers movie.
