Can we now get a drum beat going for a full length, mature themed DTV Transformers movie based on the IDW universe a la Marvel & DC?
Why on Earth would you want that?

It would be a massive shame if Animated does not get as many episodes aired as Armada or Energon.
Exactly. I hated the Dreamwave comic because it was so boring, so long and drawn out, so dark and brooding. It lost it's spark as being fun and adventurous. That's it! It stopped being an adventure, and turned into a story. Just a plain 'ol run of the mill story, but with giant robots in it.
The Movieverse is dark, but there's still enough fun and wow factor in it to make you feel like a kid.
I don't want TFs to get rid of their youthful origins. I don't want them to be matured beyond a certain point. I want them to be toys with a cartoon and a movie or two.
This was always meant to be a kid's toyline first and foremost. We seem to forget that.
And before anyone else mentions Batman again, or Superman. Well, here's the problem...
A superhero is aimed at kids as well, even though some of their origins can be extremely dark. Batman The Brave & The Bold is a perfect example of this. It's fun, with enough ties to his past to make it Batman.
Superman Returns was just dark and took us to depths in his character that we just didn't need to see. He's Superman, he's not supposed to have flaws, or at least ones that weren't quite so...evident.
The Dark Knight, while a very good film, is just too friggin' dark, and definitely is a watch once in a while kinda flick. It's emotionally draining, and beats the crap out of you by the end of it.
No. I don't want that for TransFormers. I don't want that for kids. Does anyone remember when we allowed kids to just be kids, and they had fun? I do. Let's not change that.

And that's why TFs retain their fun factor. You should be grateful that they're still fun. You say no to it now, but the instant this whole thing stops being fun for you, the thrill will be gone. The love is out the window.
It's fine to have doses of maturity in TFs. It's better when it's balanced like Animated, but it's never good if we get our own version of The Dark Knight.
Kids don't need to watch character studies into the mind and soul of a man who is or isn't criminally insane, or just evil. No thanks.
