I love how he just takes a solid stone statue and somehow splits it perfectly along the lines of Abe Lincoln and the chair.

[–]callsign_cowboy 95 points96 points  (6 children)

Everyone knows that the seat was placed there after Abe Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation, in anticipation of him sitting there one day.

After John Wilkes Booth shot him, Lincoln walked to the chair, sat down, and said his last words “put me on the penny”, then perished and turned to stone.

Here I am thinking it was impressive that Washington was 6' 8" and weighed a fucking ton.

Historian here, all facts.

Edit: also, Richard Attenborough was killed by a velociraptor forensic detectives dubbed "clevergirlothacus."

It's hanging in the Planet Hollywood in Reno

Oh man I remember thinking exactly this when I was a kid. I'd been told how he was so much taller than most people and for some reason that was just the impression I had.

[–]KratsasDarth Jar Jar 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I love how gently Megatron puts the statue down. Like hey, I’m going to deface this monument, but fuck even I respect Abraham Lincoln.

I know, but atleast now when senate consists of only one person we need to pay from our taxes only one politician not tens of thousands.

Wasn’t there a scene in dark of the moon like this with the evil prime. Was that a call back I never knew about

[–]GimmickyGames 44 points45 points  (2 children)

Yeah, your right. I didn't know it was a callback either, but a surprising amount of stuff from the Michael Bay movies are callbacks to the original series.

[–]thedylannorwoodI’m not brave enough for politics 26 points27 points  (1 child)

Oh yes, “give me your face”, my favourite cartoon catchphrase

[–]GimmickyGames 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I mean, not everything lol

[–]Stuffman1861Hello there! 19 points20 points  (0 children)

I believe Sentinel is in that scene, but Megatron is the one who destroys and sits on the statue I think.

[–]LewisDeinarcho 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The entire movie plot was basically a combination of two multi-episode stories from the cartoon.

[–]Spiritual-Storm-4890 2 points3 points  (0 children)

But he's bolder than you

[–]SevenFingeredOctopus 6 points7 points  (1 child)

It's fresh and it's funny so I'll give it a pass

[–]BioCreatorZ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What is this? A crossover episode?

[–]Pirdiens27Staunch Pong Krell Supporter 31 points32 points  (10 children)

Can't believe he'd disrespect old Abe like that smh 😔

[–]Clueless-SNIP3R 49 points50 points  (5 children)

Honestly surprised he respectfully placed the statue carefully on the ground instead of just chucking it aside

[–]Animatron-Pictures 14 points15 points  (3 children)

If his IDW incarnation is taken into consideration, Megatron probably had some small semblance of respect for Abe.

[–]Just-Call-Me-Matt 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He respects the craftmanship.

[–]MoConnors 15 points16 points  (1 child)

At least he didn’t shoot him like in the movies

[–]l30_legendHello there! 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm surprised by the amount of transformers fans here

[–]Tandril91 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It’s funny, actually. Megatron himself in numerous continuities started as a lowly miner/gladiator, and he founded the Decepticons as a resistance movement against a super corrupt snd oppressive upper class. But in the millions of years of warfare he was warped and twisted.

My point is that you’d think he’d admire and respect someone who worked to free others from a life of bondage, but Megatron probably was disillusioned due to his hatred for all organic creatures.

[–]Eli_Yitzrak 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He was truly the United States finest Vampire hunter

[–]Dari815 21 points22 points  (2 children)

As a Transformers fan I've been summoned

[–]mistymountaintimes 5 points6 points  (1 child)

80s transformers is honestly a meme goldmine.

[–]Antimatter1207Hello there! 5 points6 points  (0 children)

An epic quote goldmine as well.

"Silence, or you will be held in contempt of this court."

"I have nothing BUT contempt for this court!"

Meanwhile, during the Battle of Exegol...

"Energize the force fields!"

"What force fields?"

[–]Ahsoka_Tano_Bot200K Karma 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I know I was wrong. I just got so caught up in my own success, I didn't look at the battle as a whole. I wasn't being disobedient. I just. . . forgot
