He listened to us?

If so, at least as far as design is concerned, he didn't care.

I'm sure the action will be great, but I'm still scratching my head over half the designs.

I do give him credit though, he knows how many people are hating him, still he sticks to his guns, and unlike McFarline with Spawn(look in the special features of that DVD), he isn't apologizing for his vision.

As an artist, I can say alright to that.

I don't know if anybody's mentioned this, but it is possible to "listen" & then completely disreguard everything you heard because you believe your idea would be much, much better.

.....just thought I'd throw that out there......

interesting how he seemed to try and dodge the sequel question. Anyone think he might be doubting the success of this thing since it seems that other big budget movies like this have the sequel being written before the first even hits the theaters

No I think he's playing koy. Just by his body language he expects a sequel if not more than one. He's giddy.

Plain and simple for anyone who doesn't like the design and stuff, just don't go watch it...if you got issues, find $.50 and call someone who cares because most of us don't care about complainers....

The Alternaters could of been used along with the Masterpeices

MP Starscream is very realistic if you never had seen him and saw him only in his plane mode you would think he was a nicely constructed model

I will never agree that they were blocky he was looking at the cartoons not the toys Frenzy looks like the son of General Grevious and is made up of antennas

Frenzy looks like the **** Child of General Grievous and Transmutate.

Frankly, I'd prefer "G1 blocks" to the crap designs of the robots for this flicks.

Dreamwave seemed to do a good job of updating the G1 characters and making the "Blocks" look good in their comics, so why can't Bay and co?

Too damn lazy I guess.

Besides the fact that fans are being called geeks, an insult to most, by the director and the obnoxious usage of the word "uber" it was an alright article.

I still don't like the designs of the film, not because they don't look G1 but because there is to much focus on the frame/exoskeleton of these machines and lets not forget those mandibles. :?

I enjoyed the interview and can't wait for the movie to come out. The designs have grown on me and I love them for being somthing different than the rehashed G1 I love but am getting a bit tired of. This will never replace my fond memories of G1, it will be somthing new to add to my fond memories of Transformers. I hope we get sequals and a Beast Wars movie! I'd love to see the Dinobots movie version or a combiner. How about a triplechanger movie character?

We were called "uber geeks". I too like Star Wars,Star Trek, and some RPGs and yes i play magic to but i think "uber geek" went to far. How about Uber Trans-Fan or something. You hear geek you think smart kid with coke bottle glasses and a pen protector who sites home and programs on his computer all day. Bill Gates in other words. I am not bill gates. Granted im a little to into Transformers but a better name is needed for people like use wether they be trekies, trans-fans, or star wars lovers. I think bay just needs to be kicked in the head a few times. Maybe then the next TF movie will have a decent Megatron and Starscream. Its not hard to change them, blow them up and have them repaired or reformatted.

He-he, Bay said Doo-dads.

You wanna know something. I don't like Micheal Bay, but I like TF. For as long as I can remember I've wanted a live action movie. Now I'm getting one and I couldn't be more thrilled that Micheal Bay is doing it.

Why?

Because the masses won't sit and watch a 30' tall version of AI or Bladerunner. We would, the masses won't. If that ends up being the case, there will never be money for a sequal. If this rocks like the web buzz makes it out to be, maybe they would get 'Matrix' money and be able to give us a more character driven sequal.

Also, What is with all the complaints about the new look? Seriously, I don't get it. Hasbro changes the designs with every season of animation to accomadate new molds. In the show characters change mid-season to allow for repaints. Even the premise behind TF is changing shape... So whats got your panties in a bunch, really?

I, IMHO, think that it is the strange feeling you'll get being a TF fan going into a theater with a non-fan and really know just as much as they do about it. This feeling is unsettling because of all the time and energy we put into our fandom, when actually it was never ours to control in the first place.

Just let go and Enjoy it. Otherwise you'll generate unneccessary stress and grief for yourself and those that don't care.

Quit complaining, everyone has the right not to go see it or see it. If you don't like, then don't watch it, what more can you do than that when it opens in July.

Complaining is the right of all sentient beings. Without complaints, there is no progress. I'm complaining so that when this movie bombs, they can't say we didn't speak up.
