Robots in Discussion

At my goddaughter's birthday/costume party a kid was dressed like Megatron from the new Transformers movies. He thanked me for recognizing his costume. Guessing a lot of adults don't, I explained when I was a kid Megatron looked different. He retorted when I was a kid Megatron, who weights in at a few tons and about 35ft tall, could turn into a gun that could be picked up by a human and that didn't make any sense at all. Guess I got told.

Since when did anything about either the original series or the new movies ever make sense? We bought them as children because they were cool and we ignored fantasy-destroying issues then just as children will ignore them now.

Which suited marketing just fine because they came up with the plot afterwards to sell the toy.

Giant fighting Mech robots? That move lightning fast? Something about the exponential physics of scale, there... Besides, just have all of the conventional tanks take aim at the knee joint at the same time...

Now Ogre (which was far less popular: http://www.sjgames.com/ogre) I could see, even if it was just a little revised.
