Fandom: Michael Bay, isn't this a stupid decision?
Michael Bay: I HAVE NO IDEA! (Prepares to flip 'Maximum Trolling' switch on his lulz gun)
This development shows how little Hasbro/Michael Bay cares. They won't even bother trying to improve these films. Just so long as the formula works (and they get loads of cash), they aren't going to try and change it for the better. If it ain't broke, don't fix it is their philosophy.
Also, see my signature for what I think of Hasbro and Michael Bay pretty much all of the time now:
my thoughts on Hasbro's current marketing strategy is above.
I really hope they spend a ton of money on TF4 just to have barely enough people show up to turn a profit (trying to be realistic). For once, people need to stop giving in and just wait to see it on DVD (or torrent for free), just to help change the boring formula of current mainstream movies.
THE POWERS OF DARKNESS ARE A MORE POWERFUL WEAPON THAN ALL THE TOYS YOUR SCIENCE CAN MUSTER Die, Autobots!
I just got home from seeing the Avengers. If they sack Ehren Kruger and Michael Bay right now and hire Joss Whedon that would be awesome. Going by what he just did, I think it would be something special.
I've always viewed the Bay movies as a seperate TF continuity, and as such, I enjoyed them all. Yes, there were the obvious plotholes (especially in revenge), but when you look at them the way I do, they dont have to mirror past TF lore to be enjoyable...they're just another version of what we all love. I've also learned in the past 5 years not to try and argue their worth to die hard g1ers, LOL. It's all in what you like.
BTW...of course they are gonna get Kruger to write #4...Dark of the Moon made OVER A BILLION DOLLARS! Like or not, 85% of them are in it for the money, not to make us die-hards happy. It sucks, but its true.
I'm excited for another movie! However as I've said before I hope Shia does not come back. I'm curious to see if we get a new villain or if Unicron gets brought into the picture. I will miss the Big Four Decepticons, as I call them, since they are dead, especially Shockwave, because his character wasn't explored at all in DOTM. Other than that bring it on!
Motto:"Cry havoc and let slip the Wolves of War, Vae Victus!"
Weapon: Saber Blade
why cant they just get rid of everyone who was involved with the last 3 and let some new people take a stab at it? This franchise needs some new life and i dont think this is going to do it. I still say the entire franchise needs a reboot, forget bayformers forget TF Prime and start from scratch. We need another Beast Wars style reboot and fast.
