I hope this time it will be focused less on human shenanigans and more on robot shenanigans.

For now, things are looking good.
However, if the new human is Kicker and the whole movie is centered around him... I swear I'm going to KICK someone in the nuts!

For the same reason so many people saw the trilogy: because it's Transformers on the big screen, and it's FUN.

God, please make him stop. I was really happy when he said TF3 was his last movie, now here he is with a fourth film.

"It's not a reboot!" That's too bad because it's exactly what it should be, including booting his ass off this film.

Says nothing about a new planet, just possible off planet stuff as well (as if the other three didn't have scenes and the like off planet :roll: )

And please, don't wish that upon Beast Wars. I don't want to see just how Bay might ruin my childhood. Don't get me wrong, the movies aren't bad, but last think I want is Optimus Primal and Cheetor sitting around making crotch jokes about Dinobot.

The movie-verse has clearly stated that there are other cybertronians that are not on earth.

They could focus on a different group of autobots and decepticons that either start out in space, or leave from earth to space.

So a young commander, Rodimus, has to pursue Galvatrron.

Of course it is the Bay-verse so Rodimus is a blue truck, and Galvatron's earth mode is a yellow taxi :roll:

Or maybe it'll be live action Rescue Bots ... who knows :michaelbay:

They found out the hard way with Battleship that these thing do not sell themselves and automatically make a billion dollars. The fact that Paramount evidently ask Hasbro to recall and sit on their entire GIJoe line for 2012 because they wanted to f*ck with them movie for another 10 months after it's in the can just goes to show how little the two side in this understand each other.

And the director flat out said Bay was wrong about the Turtles being aliens and it was the fan backlash to Bay being wrong that had them start over again from scratch. The ooze that mutates them was going to be alien (an industrial byproduct of Krang's people) just like it's always been but Bay only half listened to the pitch so all he heard was the word "alien".

Off planet? Away from Earth with no humans and all Transformer (Hopefully)? That would be a change.

As for Last Stand of the Wreckers movie... Hm. You know, I think that it could be pulled off well.

New cast of Characters means that he may actually drop the characters that we know and love (*Cough* Optimus *Cough*) back on Earth. Maybe he will work it like a spinoff?

I agree with Seibertron, everything Bay says is to be taken with a grain of salt. I mean, didn't he say that the Cloverfield Monster was going to be the enemy in ROTF? Please. Save that for the Fanfics.

Anyone else get a chuckle out of Bay's slam on The Amazing Spider-Man?

I don't like to be so trait but this just make me laugh.

"i don't want to go too scifi".... in my Sci-fi action movie.

I understood what he ment but his wording just make me laugh (helped by the fact Transformers premise is mostly squandered potential in his hands.

Motto: "Never give up or lose hope."

Here is my two cents. I believe earlier that Bay stated that the only returning characters would be Optimus and Bumblebee (I really hope Bee dies this time!). I don't think he would do beast wars because he would have shrink the transformers a $hit ton to make them the appropriate animal size. As far as off planet locations that is curious. Their only transport they had was the "Xanthion" and it was blown up by Starscream. He said the first three movies would be "past" so this should hold true. However all three of the wreckers survive so they might use NASA to retrieve parts from the Ark on the moon to build a new one for them to go "off planet" with unless a flying Autobot shows up and gets the parts for them. Hopefully the off planet bad guy isn't Unicron but right now I am leaning towards Galvatron. Who knows he might completely make up a new bad guy. Another off planet suggestion would be from the Drift comic series. There was a faction on a distant planet of transformers that didn't want to fight int he civil war so they left. Be cool if they would re-format Optimus and Bee like they did Drift. He could also use Vector Sigma possibly to bring Megatron back or use it to create the new bad guy and then use vector sigma to try and transform Earth into a new Cybertron. Would explain some off planet time but still have a lot of earth time.

Holy sh*t, bay actually spelled Spider-Man right, that's an ability many don't have.

But I'm not going to get my hopes up for this, especially not based on anything Bay says, I wonb't take anything at face value until I see the film myself. It's just going to end like with "Shockwave will be a badass and more brutal than Megatron" thing they had going on last time round.

keep it grounded? yeah like the first three were grounded. Im guessing hes going to do what the 86 movie did, skip to the future to introduce new characters & change things up but still be able to have current characters and plot points(did the previous 3 even have plot points?). But until stuff starts leaking and we see a trailer i wont believe a thing hes says, going to go into this one like i did with DOTM very low expectations. Remember everyone, no expectations no disappointment. Still say bay should not be involved in this one, hes done hes three now let someone else have a shot.

Oh for the love of all that's holy let's hope they do. Bay's BUGFORMERS have been the shittiest designs we've ever seen in Transformers with the exception of Animorph's and Beast Wars.

They need a reboot and they need to BOOT Bay to the curb. All the potential for kick assery he's had and he's just ruined every opportunity with the first three movies.

He doesn't deserve the chance again.

Bay doesn't have the mental capacity to "re-boot" the mess he made of the Transformers. Hopefully we get another round of dog's humping mailboxes and John Turturro on the receiving end of a golden shower. That's what made the Bayformers so great...slapstick comedy and the human element.

Pray that the Amazing Spiderman does well and inspires someone to dethrone Bay and undo the botched abortion he's created.

Sounds promising. I still can't help but feel the new villain will be a more obscure Decepticon. Though they can introduce Galvatron as he hasn't always been a Megatron upgrade. Also Scourge as an oil tankor and Cyclonus as an attack copter. Or how about Jhiaxus. That would be cool. 2nd trilogy, 2nd generation.
