I know I’m probably late to the game here, so to speak, but I found this rather amusing. Forgive the inherent geekiness of this post…
As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I’ve been playing the Transformers game for Playstation 2. It’s a surprisingly good game, actually. However, it’s not based on Generation 1 (the mid-80’s TV series and movie). It’s based on Transformers: Armada, which admittedly started out pretty badly but seriously improved as the series went on. Anyway, the opening movie for the game shows Megatron and Optimus Prime battling atop a building on Cybertron, while Megatron’s army of Decepticlones are overwhelming the Autobot defenses. Then, suddenly, Megatron throws out a line that was a nod to G1.
He grabbed Optimus by the throat and said, “I would have waited an eternity for this. It’s over, Prime!”
Those were the same words said by Megatron after mortally wounding Optimus in the movie… heh. Yes, like I said, it’s geeky. It amused me, though… heh.
