Talking in vehicle mode

Recommended Posts

Something I'm sure everyone noticed is that the Transformers in the first film were rather silent in vehicle mode. The only exception was the Decepticons moving out, talking via radio in Cybertronian.

 

So in this movie, should that trend continue? Or should our cars and trucks be more chatty?

 

How would you like to see it done? Over "radio"? In English? In Cybertronian? Should their headlights blink in tandem with their speech? Anything?

I think maybe if their doors open and they yelled "Get it" would be fine, but any more than that and it starts to get silly. And Knight Rider-y... Although will probably do it better than the new version, lol :D

They should do it G1/KITT style. They should just talk in vehicle mode with some sort of pulsating lights inside the vehicle for the benefit of the audience.

 

I wish they did do more of that in the first movie. It would have been a good way to have Transformers talking without spending money on more animation.

:pfx, it's stupid that they have to communicate over radio when in Vehicle mode or otherwise remain silent, The flashing light or radio display would be a good way to do it I reckon

I'd be happy to see some talking in vehicle mode, provided it was done right, and didn't take focus away from the TF's. I don't think flashing lights are completely neccissary externally, but maybe a glowing insignia inside the cabins would work.

 

However, I enjoyed the decepticons using radio transmissions in cybertronian. The sound effects were cool and the cybertronian subtitle trick was a nice touch.

 

Maybe continue that for the 'cons, as I felt it added to the vibe, but pursue more English vocals in vehicle mode for the 'bots
