A Challenge For Michael Bay Apologists

While looking up Transformers on the Internet earlier to day, Toys R Us happened to conveniently prove (one of) my point about the movie Transformers being hideous and dumb monsters.  I kindly draw your attention to two pictures below.  One is of a robot that is obviously both humanoid and airplane, so well constructed that both are obvious and yet neither mode imposes itself upon the other.  The other image is of some sort of triangle with spindly legs attached somehow, a disaster of modern engineering.

Seriously, why would we prefer the Bay designs over the classics?

If you’re able to explain the appeal of these designs, hit us up in the comments section and share.
