Hey everyone! Welcome to Transformers 101, the class where we can hopefully educate Michael Bay and Hasbro's COO Brian Goldner about the Transformers. First, let's start with today's lesson which focuses on an ad campaign that is very similar to a popular ad campaign during the 1980s in America. Okay, is everyone paying attention? Let's begin today's lesson ... make sure you scroll all the way down to complete today's lesson.

Melissa is shouting!!!

I updated the images below to include a variety of different Megatron images. Fans that are rallying behind this are NOT stuck in the 80s like a couple of you have suggested who apparently don't get what we're saying. This isn't about G1. I am a fan of all things Transformers from 1984 to 2006. These movie designs strip away the very thing that I have enjoyed about the Transformers robots. The images below show a consistent pattern of an evolution of the most badass Transformer of them all. To many of us, the appeal of "Transformers" is that the robot modes giveaway what their vehicle modes are. That's always been the fun part about Transformers. If I just wanted a movie about giant robots, I'd watch regular robot cartoons like Evangelion or Gundam (which are great series as well ... but they're not Transformers). Short Circuit and Batteries Not Included are starting to look good compared to these leaked designs.
