i enjoyed the first one. if they made the first movie following the original a lot of people would have been confused. they had to put and take shit out to draw people who have never seen or heard about the original cartoon. massive explosions and tits are usually a good combination.[/quote]
The original cartoon was “Robots land on earth billions of years ago and sleep for thousands of years. After waking, a probe scans local machines (mostly cars) and then comes back and rebuilds the damaged robots so they can take on those forms”. The time issue is a problem and even was in the cartoon…because after thousands of years, their own planet somehow was unaffected by time.
The original series was created ONLY so they could sell toys. They had no intentions of it even being a long running series, especially one that would lead to decades of fans and movies, so the logic of the series was off originally. As their fan base grew, they started cleaning up mistakes.
