I seriously cant get over the amount of complaining about the "cars" used in this movie! I Had to join this forum just so I can comment. Have any of you actually ever seen the original Transformers TV show? So two complaints I am seeing over and over again are
Number 1 - Too many cars
The original Transformers show in the first two seasons had a combined cast of over 29 vehicles! When Prime rolled our to attack he had a real "strike force" with him not 5 Autobots or a hand full of soldiers he had close to 20 cars with him. Because they are Autobots he had automobiles with him!! And when the first movie came out everyone complained on here that "Why is there only 5 Autobots?) now Bay listens and adds a larger Autobot cast and WE STILL COMPLAIN. They come from a whole planet of transformers why is it so hard to believe there would be more than just 5 of them? Come on people!
Number 2 - The cars are two nice!! Too fancy!!
Again did any of you see the original source material, the majority of the original transformers were all high end expensive cars for their time or tricked out versions of sports cars.

ALL COOL CARS! I mean who wants to see a movie or a cartoon staring a Honda Civic and Ford Focus and a Station Wagon! If you watch a movie about 5 women or men super heroes they cast good looking people in that role because they want to attract people who like these men or women and they way they look. So for a movie about robot cars they want to catch eye catching sexy cars, that will attract car lovers and THE BIGGEST feature sell TOYS!!! Because if you cant sell toys you cant make movies! PERIOD. If they make a movie that just Fanboys will love NO ONE BUT THE 100 PEOPLE ON HERE WILL GO SEE IT AND IT WILL MAKE NO MONEY!! You have to appeal to the 38 year man who loves Transformers but also his friends and his wife and his kids. Because you have to sell tickets. And Micheal Bay puts people in theaters and makes fun to watch movies.
He is listening to us giving us more cars and more characters instead of more humans. ENJOY SOMETHING FOR ONCE!
Ok I am done, go ahead and attack back

Leave it to Dead Metal to have the word 'Pronz' in his signature.

You're right it does look similar. You think they might cheap out on the toy and re-release the old classics Nemesis Prime in the new movie line? I really hope not. Can't stop buying Black Primes!!
