People keep forgetting,the 1986 movie didn't have the robots done in all 100% CGI.
A few things,
1.- No, the first movie was not done in CGI, it was done intirely in cartoon format.
2.- This was nothing new and was inexpensive. In that regard, there would be no budget differenace if humans, or TF were animated. So in that respect, it would be expected that TF would have more screen time.

Your right, but there's the budget to remember. The cost would be 10 times that of what DOTM or ROTF was. That's a big gamble to take on a new concept.
I meantioned this already, but not sure if it wasn't seen cause it got buried on page two. The thing with TF, is that for the most part people (meaning general public, and even the casual fans) reconise them as cars, trucks, airplanes etc. Basicly earth vehicles that transform into giant robots. "Robots in disguise", not Robots on their home planet. And unfortunutly, i'd have to agree with this. I don't want to see a bunch of protoforms or cybertronion vehicles running around. I love seeing hopped up vehicles that i'm familuar with driving down the freeway, transform and tear shit up. Ask anyone about TF and ask them what they remeber Optimus Prime as. I bet you know one will say anyhing but a red/blue semi truck. Protoform Optimus toy from 07' was one of the worst selling toys of the movie line. So while yes, other movies have proven succesfull taking place on other planets, they were also always based on other planets and based around that setting. (EI- star wars has always taken place on other planets and outer space and based on earth or one planet)
