Optimus Prime reactions…

with 2 comments

You know, as I go over some posts from a few months back when they first starting releasing the flurry of Transformers pictures, I remember thinking that Optimus Prime would look weird with lips.  They had that horrible looking “test shot”, and the “not-Peter Cullen” voice going on.

Having seen the film a couple of times, I have to say it really ended up working really well with the facial features on the robots.  It was done in an incredibly realistic way, and not once did I think to myself it would have looked better with Optimus’ face shield up instead.  It’s so lifelike and well-done by the animators at ILM, that I’m actually glad they did it the way they did.

It’s going to be interesting to see how, and if, they tweak it in the inevitable sequel….

Optimus Prime Speaking UPDATE

leave a comment »

Remember that post I had a couple weeks back from FirstShowing.net that had Optimus Prime speaking?

I’m happy to report that at Michael Bay’s official hompage, they’ve confirmed that the shot was just a test shot, and it wasn’t Peter Cullen speaking either….I did think the voice was particularly low-pitched….

And the lips on Prime….I’m hoping those were just part of the “test” also…because that was just weird.

Check it out….here.

New Transformers TV Spots

leave a comment »

I’ve gotten alot more excited than I already was for Transformers coming out this summer. One reason to like the director, Michael Bay, if you don’t already, is the fact that he and the producers are purposefully avoiding revealing completely all of the robots from the movie.

I like this approach, because it sure seems like lots of trailers give away a great deal before you even head to the theatre…::coughSpiderman3cough::

Here’s a page that will link you to two new TV spots released over the weekend. They set up everything, and make this look like it will be one action-packed ride….July 4th, 2007.
