This is probably the BEST crossover I've seen in years! Optimus Prime would be a HELL of a role model for Shinji. :)

Oh right a few butt shots in his movies? So so hateful, Eva is so far beyond that eva would never touch the subject of fan service which is a horrible hateful sin against woman kind :um:

Honestly, I foresee possible crash and burn. Eva and Transformers don't seem like they'd jive well together.

Transformers, like Batman, has been a series that has both had it's light-hearted elements, and it's dark elements, so it probably go either way. :)

I think I've mentioned this in two other threads, but I see possible disaster in this project's future. However, should it turn out to be totally, ball-bustingly awesome, I will watch it without complaints. :lol:

How the heck are the Autobots supposed to bust through AT Fields? They going to melt down replica spears and form them into bullets?

I curse the fact that most people now think Bay and Transformers are joined at the hip. The franchise is forever tarnished by that turd, and looks like TMNT will be headed for the same fate. :sniffle:

I mean, predictability is the central attraction and the narrative hook that we've all come to expect from the Evangelion franchise. How come Anno can't realize this? Twice? - FreakyFilmFan4ever

I still wonder how the fights are going to happen. The Angels are so much bigger than the Autobots and the Decepticons, How are they even going to get past the AT fields?

But as I noted in the TMNT discussion there's not much left to tarnish at this point. Adding shit to a cesspool doesn't really do much, y'know?

The first thought I had when I heard the news was, "I wonder if there'll be Eva-themed Transformers, e.g. an EVA-02 Porsche 911 and an EVA-00 Nissan GT-R?"

And what's wrong with Transformers: Prime? I think it's probably the best entry into the Transformers franchise so far, with gripping story telling, memorable incarnations of the characters, and it doesn't stop itself from steeping into dark-story telling. :) If anything, I think TF:P would fit best with the scheme of the EVA universe.

^Not to get into a too involved discussion about which version of Transformers is the best or worst, but G1 was what I grew up with and I've largely disregarded the subsequent animated incarnations of TF since. In this regard, I favor Takara Tomy's decision to go with the original version uninfluenced by its predecessors.
