I had one of these growing up and I was such shit at it I literally have never heard one used for anything other than plonky, labored renditions of ‘twinkle twinkle little star’ in my living room. This is gorgeous.
I was watching Everything Wrong With Transformers In 7 Minutes or Less and a lot of it agreed with but certain things I didn’t. And then I caught a glimpse of this comment (sorry, not tech savvy enough to screencap it *shrugs*):
177SCmaro"He can scan a vehicle and immediately change his composition to be able to transform into it at will." Yet he can’t talk normally? What you’re saying is this super advanced alien robot with poly-mimetic abilities doesn’t even have Microsoft Sam level of technology when it comes to communicating audibly? lol
:and I think that something important is being forgotten. They are robotic oraganisms. They are not machines as we know them and they have limits. They can’t have a limb ripped off and be all ‘Oh, I’ll just transform and it will grow back.’ Nope. They have to have it reattached- this is why they have such things a medical officers in the ranks of the Autobots. What they’re capable is mimicry, but only of similar materials- cars, planes, electronics- because what they are made out of is in the range of their capabilities. They could not mimic organic life. They don’t create these materials from thin air, but they are already part of their bodies; they don’t suddenly make glass for their windows, but they have something that they can alter enough to look like it, and they don’t suddenly grow tires.
As a species, they have the ability to shift and manipulate their bodies in a way that is absolutely mind-boggling but they have limits in that too. A smaller Transformer could not disguise himself as a car that has a significant difference in height and mass because matter can not simply be created, only altered. It’s a fundamental rule of the universe.
Also, remember that Ratchet is supposed to be a pretty damn good medic- if he couldn’t simply fix it that means something in the unit was probably damaged beyond repair. Well then, why not just build him a new one? Because they’re in middle of war that consumed their planet, and in a war things get rationed and materials are spent on what would be considered important such as weapons or limbs (so their warriors can continue to battle). It didn’t get fixed because amongst his own kind it wasn’t that big of hindrance because they have internal comms so it was non-priority. It’s only when Bumblebee needed to interact with humans did it become an issue.
(Also, there was a comment in the video about ‘what station is playing John Wayne clips’ and I’d like to remind you that Bumblebee doesn’t just have the use of the radio but the entirety of the internet at his disposal. He could probably find a clip for any situation he could ever need.)
Sorry for the long post and if I stepped on anyone’s toes, but it was really bothering me :I.
When you go to answer a question with: I guess it’s just a part of my personality matrix.
"it is possible for two men to be close friends and have a strong relationship without wanting to suck each others dicks or being in love!” the tumblr user screams.
around the world, millions of slash shippers look up from their computers.
"by god," they say, "he’s right."
"My body, my choice" only makes sense when someone else’s life isn’t at stake.
Fun fact: If my younger sister was in a car accident and desperately needed a blood transfusion to live, and I was the only person on Earth who could donate blood to save her, and even though donating blood is a relatively easy, safe, and quick procedure no one can force me to give blood. Yes, even to save the life of a fully grown person, it would be ILLEGAL to FORCE me to donate blood if I didn’t want to.
See, we have this concept called “bodily autonomy.” It’s this….cultural notion that a person’s control over their own body is above all important and must not be infringed upon.
Like, we can’t even take LIFE SAVING organs from CORPSES unless the person whose corpse it is gave consent before their death. Even corpses get bodily autonomy.
To tell people that they MUST sacrifice their bodily autonomy for 9 months against their will in an incredibly expensive, invasive, difficult process to save what YOU view as another human life (a debatable claim in the early stages of pregnancy when the VAST majority of abortions are performed) is desperately unethical. You can’t even ask people to sacrifice bodily autonomy to give up organs they aren’t using anymore after they have died.
You’re asking people who can become pregnant to accept less bodily autonomy than we grant to dead bodies.
