Out of the Past
I’m just gonna leave these here..
Ok but… They’re mecha/robots made of metal and alloy and they have all the same surgical tools that would be used to treat organic flesh…? That doesn’t really fly with me. I mean I like that they had scenes showing Ratchet using a welder and what not to fix up wounds in earlier episodes because it’s a sort of world building factor and a cute parallel to our own world versus theirs. Syringes, calipers to hold up flesh and fat folds, SCALPELS especially that are meant to cut tissue and make incisions… None of these things are any good to treat robotic wounds. It’d be like using those tools to try to fix a car or something. A bit in the same vein of complaint that I had about them using swords and blades to fight one another as opposed to their guns because again, metal. I know it LOOKS cool and it gets a message across without very much thought but it’s very hard to cut metal WITH metal unless it’s something like Knockout’s circular saw that has it’s own friction to it.
So this implies one of two things. One, that their biology is actually more similar to ours in ways that we haven’t previously considered such as the likes of existing bio-mechanical ‘organs’ akin to that of the cyborgs in Metal Gear Rising:
OR… the writers/directors oversighted/laxed out and just filled in with stock that people would immediately recognize at a glance. I’ll say it’s the latter because there was a clear showing of all of Breakdown’s ‘guts’ in Crossfire and none of them were of the wet variety.
Sad exhibit A. :C
It’s not that I’m pissed about it or anything I just find this to be an interesting presentation thinking about our world and theirs and what would or wouldn’t be proper to administer from said worlds to others. I know I know it’s a cartoon and the writers obviously seemed more interested in banging out the aesthetics more than they were any real story or world building or anything DEEP like that cause it’s ‘lol for kids’ but I still woulda loved to see them go that extra mile with the creative thought process. Outside of medical, would this make a good torture tool chest for a robot mech 30ft tall reinforced with ‘solve-for-x’ amount of tons of metal…? Nnnnn-Probly not. :T Unless they hate having their finish scratched. -coughKnockout-
G1 Arcee is really pretty and awesome
So I made some gifs of her
Lonliness sucks so much sometimes. I’m generally fine being a loner, doing whatever I want but sometimes I just really need/want that romance.
And I want to RP as myself with TFP characters I follow but I don’t know where to start or if they care to do such… I don’t have much of an imagination lately to create a character or make a separate RP blog… I just always fancied just being me and wondering what it would be like to interact with my favorite Transformers characters my whole life, if they were real.
Some of my favorite Decepticon role players I follow I’m a bit intimidated by and so I just kinda suck at trying to interact with them and be interesting enough without being too weird… I dunno. Just feeling kinda down today….
