Man I miss "Turansuform!" from Galaxy Force

| No Comments

Ok Hasbro and the other powers that be.

I was giving you the benefit of the doubt on Transformers Cybertron both for toys and animation.

I already knew you'd altered some toys from their Takara releases and this was for the negative.

Now I've gone ahead and watched the premiere of Transformers: Cybertron, the supposed adapation of the original Takara Transformers Galaxy Force and it appears you've had to go and fuck this up too?

You start Cybertron with the fourth episode of Galaxy Force??? WHAT THE FUCK!?!?!?!

That's like giving someone an issue #7 comic book of an 12-part miniseries and saying "you'll figure it out".

And here all along I've been under the illusion that you'd done away with Voicebox as the producing company and went with someone else. But no. I mean, I love Gary Chalk and David Kaye but when they use these these voices they are just sounding like bad retreads of the great characters Optimus Primal and Beast Wars Megatron. Remember them? They were well written and well acted. Remember when that was possible in a Transformers cartoon?

And who the hell serious brought to the table the idea of giving Jetfire an Australian accent and Thundercracker and over the top redneck Texas accent? (No offense to the Australians. The Texans? Well...) I mean, one of the main problems with Energon was that having so few voice actors on the show made everybody eventually sound the same. So what do we do here? Give them accents??? Yeah, that worked for Energon Bulkhead!!! Ugh!!!

And Vector Prime? So you brought in TF vet Richard Newman. Great. That's cool. But does he have to use the Beast Wars Rhinox voice for a different character?!?!?!?!

NOTE: Accents can be distracting when you are producing this for an audience that speaks American English!!!!

And why change the name of Speedia? I mean... c'mon!!! At least it doesn't sound like a character and/or something generic TF from previous shows. Velocitron??? What the fuck!??!!?!?! The "tron" suffix is over-fucking-done to death.

The animation of course is still pretty decent. And the voice actors for the kids are really good. And the fact that the annoying voice reverb for 'bots is gone is a MAJOR improvement. And there was really only 1 or 2 bad lines of dialogue that were inappropriate because of the fact they couldn't fit into the original Japanese (but man oh man do the stick out)!

That being said I'm soooooooooooooo happy that Justice League Unlimited was on. Now there's a show that is written and produced for the adult fans.
