Well, not the original series, no. But the Cube is the Allspark, which actually came out of the Beast Wars/Machines series. The concept of a Spark was introed in Beast Wars and "the Matrix" became the Allspark in Beast Machines. The idea was further refined later. I have no idea how they got from an entire dimension to a cube, but meh. I'm fine with a little Tetris homage.

And still, the new movie had character development, and Megatron didn't transform into a friggen pistol, and Rodimus Prime wasn't in it. That's gold, in my book.

It isn't the best movie ever, true, but it wasn't bad.

Megatron as a pistol is ownage wtf are you talking about?

If anything I honestly thought he'd be in his tank form that he had in one of the series. I forget which one it was, but my friend had the action figure of him as a tank.

I thought Megatron's "Galvatron" cannon-form was his best incarnation, personally...

So we have the original movie to thank for that.

You have the POOOOOOOWEEEEEEEEEER!  YEAH!

I got my nephew one of the Megatrons that turned into a tank...but his was from one of the cartoons that dealt with those smaller Transformers that they used to 'power up' or w/e...I really only got him it because the Optimus Prime was so much more expensive though...I figured let my bro have to buy that one. :P

As long as it's better than this---^, I might go see it.

i would only go see the movie if it was anything like that --^
apart from that i actually hate that show, its really.. weird.. no offence to the fans
i just cant believe that people as cool as chrono and magus and schala and whatnot were more or less created to be carbon copies of characters from that show :(

Is that not the inevitable result of having the creator of DBZ being the artist for CT?
Carbon copies, maybe.. but we love them just the same..

They're hardly carbon copies. I've never seen how people so easily say "Goku=Crono" & the like. Besides the spiky hair & styles used, I don't think they look like one another. Now, true, like GlennLeo said, if you bring TOIE into it, maybe...but ufck them. They're borderline non-canon as far as I'm concerned.

Anyone who says Crono looks like Goku has just shown the world their absolute lack of artistic perception. What, he has spiky hair (Which isn't even the same color, mind you) so he's the same? What a fuckin joke..

Maybe they confused Chrono Trigger with Dragion Warrior 8. The Hero of that game even goes Super Sayain during certain attacks.

The two games can be easily confused. After all, they both... um... have vowels and consonants in their names.
