Just say the '86 Movie. That's what I do.


Same here. But for some, there is the whole Optimus Prime died theme. That, and people hated Hot Rod. But there is always the one Sabrblade mentioned. However, that one doesn't have any of Kup's stories.

Which reminds me... Did I ever tell you the story of the time I attended Anime Expo 2011? :-?

True, but it's got plenty of Energon Matrixy goodness. :D

Though, oddly, it was done by Toei instead of the show's studio Production Reed. Go figure. ;)

I'm glad to hear Marky Mark is the new lead; I was tired of Shia after the first movie.

I wonder why it's a deception symbol (or half of one at least) for the logo? They killed all of the big bads we know well. Maybe they'll bring in lesser known villains or even new ones, which would be cool. I just hope they aren't all just cannon fodder...

I think it's good news. I don't know how big his role will be, since you get the bimbo as lead character with her redneck boyfriend.

Also wondering who would be the badguy, all the first season G1 big role cons are dead. Wow, all in one movie -_-

I'm ok with this ... He's a pretty good actor, obviously he's had a few not so fantastic pieces of work, but overall I like his work. What annoys me more is that lousy logo! It sucks!

Optimistic until learn more to not be optimistic about. Con symbol half would be an example of more to start the disappointment train.

Mark's cool.

And for the poster who said all the big bads were killed in DOTM it's true, but death rarely holds in comics or comic movies, Prime's already had a few resurrections and Megatron another. And there's more Deceptibaddies out there to ruin use.

We do know Weaving's not planning a return.

That's it. I've had it. I am sick and tired of the continued hollywood bastardization of the Transformers. It's now impossible for me to get excited for any more TF movies. Disheartening news indeed.

They changed shia le bufty for mark wahlberg- mega improvement.

But I suppose opinions are like assholes, everyone's got 'em. But for those who are having a birch feet over choice of actors, who would you rather have? Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnstone, Bruce Willis? Sly Stallone? Arnie? Statham? VanDamm?

Wait if they were there you STILL wouldn't be happy.

The only way I see this working with mark is if the movie is on a more serious note. A touch of humor here and there, sure, but Nothing over the top like the previous movies. I think we're due for a more serious, dark, and gritty transformers movie:)

and the cast just keeps on getting crapper....

why not just add colin farrell and ask him to do any accent that ISNT irish?

ffs michael bay could not direct a decent film if his life depended on it. Crap cast and crap story lines in all the movies with even worse emo band doing the music for it

Just because speilberg throws money at crap till its better doesnt actually make it better

i mean ffs tf3 - hey why dont we have megatron as a death machine truck?....isnt it ment to be robots in disguise??

it was like a bad game of hide and seek - OH LOOK theres megatron 'how did you know?' maybe because you look like a mad max death truck?....

awful awful idea casting mark wahberg to do this crap. The movies are bad enough but hes been in ALOT of terrible movies that were like being in your own bath....only to find a turd in it - The Happening - is just 1 example of an awful movie this guy has done....i mean christ he seemed almost as if he couldnt even be bothered in most of the scenes

Haha seems like it doesnt it? It's just a lot of the fans seem to not understand a lot of things... its the same reason they got pissed when the news disney was going to buy hasbro, or when hasbro says shit not going after a collectors market, or that transformers are for kids, etc. etc. They feel threatened... I don't know why, it just seems to happen. So, they freak out, because they feel like a big company, who couldn't possibly care less about some niche group, is personally attacking them individually. It's the majority of the fandom. It just doesn't happen JUST here, everywhere I go, its always the vocal minority bitching about something. Hell, I've even done it before.

That being said: I liked the first 3 movies, ROTF being my favorite for every reason: best toys, story, most g1 in story telling, action... everything. It sure as hell beats some supermodel girl just happening to know an extreme hacker who also pirates DDR and can decode a encoded signal the entire government can't using audacity.

I'm sure the new movies will be fine, they will make tons of money, because the few hundred angry transfans mean nothing to hasbro, considering the movies make super bank. So NOTHING you say or do will change what they do... except totally screw up the story in DOTM by just removing Mudflap and Skids completely in post production. The movies make too much money the way they are to change anything.

best toys? WTF!?

ok hold on deep breath....

your honestly saying these awful movie toy figures which the plastic feels almost...ko...like are better than lines such as

RiD
Classics
Alternators
Masterpieces
3rd party

If anything the toy lines are the worst toy lines unless you like shitloads of re-released bumblebees and primes. Sorry i dont want a shelf just full of crappy cant talk properly bumblebee or same crappy could over and over again prime

sorry but adding mark to the crappy movie line kinda makes sense since pretty much every other movie this guys been in has been a total unside down turd. Him and Shia would probably end up sleeping together and giving one to the military along with bay

I for one think mark is a great actor. The choice to cast him is as good as casting any top notch actor...but I think I understand the frustration. Transformers should be single episodes not a trilogy. New actors and new bots are introduced with different theme movie, not one big storyline. We get more toys and if the previous movie don't work, we can look forward to a new one. Hell, with different casts from transformers universe and different director at the helm. Kind of like one of those books where there's single self contain story told by different writers.

And it does annoy the hell out of me when people think there are better actors out here to cast but they can't tell us who they want. They just whine and both for the hell of it. Try figuring out who you like first and then bitch. No one is denying you that right. We all want a good transformers movie.

And this is exactly what I mean by over-reacting... calm down. I mean, you are so upset you're not even making sense for a lot of your post. But thanks for proving my point.

And I meant best out of the the movie toys. that was my mistake. It still doesn't warrant you pretending to hyperventilate on a forum.
