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.
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.
