For personal reasons I hope Shia stays away, but professionally if he does a fourth, he will be the Transformers kid for life.

Bay is the only one who can bring the show to life, but if you guys want more robots and story, you need to axe Speilberg. The guy hasn't made a honest to god good movie since Saving Private Ryan back in the 90's. He like George Lucas are just Hollywood Dinosaurs.

If Michael Bay and Steven Spielburg don't do it, Hasbro will find someone to do a fourth movie. They're too used to these profits by now that they want to keep it consistent. However, very few film sagas find treasure in a fourth installment, let alone a third. Shrek was a fun series through the second film but I felt the third plummeted. Indiana Jones was strongest in the first and third in my opinion, and the other two weren't worth much. Star Wars at least has four good ones but I was not a big fan of episodes II and III.
I dunno...I'm just not so sure about more movies at this point even though I've absolutely loved all three so far. I'm just afraid it's going to lose it's magic.
Please note: If you think I may be joking, I probably am.

I was wondering if anyone else thinks that JJ Abrams would be an excellent fit for the next trilogy. Thoughts?

Personally I'd much rather see a feature length, in-theater Transformers Prime movie than another Bayquel. Because I know I'd be getting a quality production where storytelling and voice talent are front and center. Any future Bayformer movies are $1 Redbox rentals at best for me, maybe even free library rentals.

i dont see why some BIG transformers fans are complaining.

transformers was going no where before the movies lol.

and

NOOO Spielberg should not do the fourth movie

he would probably make it about a single character rather then the transformers as a whole

Michael Bay may not be liked by alot of TF fans but he did do the whole war aspect alot better then any other TF series.

in the cartoons it seemed like the Autobots and Decepticons were just shooting fake lasers or something cause no one died or anything


but i would say that bay does need to focus more on the villains and give them some kick butt scenes.

although i agree that there needs to be a few years. like 4-6 years at the least

This in turn means that we will get more transcription factors, it is. Certainly most of the movie line of things, I gather, but I am more willing to pick up the money created indirectly through other lines.
