here's my question.....how could you fuck everything up this badly? it's obvious he'll only pick the "right" questions for him to answer just like when they were announcing the characters on yahoo a while back they only picked the easy retarded questions.

I'm thinking the asking won't change much, more prod a few interesting trivia answers.

Funny though, directors wouldn't dare change the same things on another franchise. For instance...What if they took wolverine and put him in blue/red flame tights, a predator head, and gave him a gun hand instead of 3 blades?

It's just so far from established characters. Cripes.

Anyone who sends death threats really needs to get a life.

My questions...I tried to keep them answerable, and not too hostile...

Is the classic G1 dynamic between Megatron and Starscream intact in the film?

Who is voicing Starscream?

After hearing a recent recording of Frank Welker doing the classic Megatron voice, I'm convinced he's still one of the most talented voice actors in the industry. Why did you only go half way in placating the fans by casting Peter Cullen, when he works best when he's playing off Frank Welker?

Will we see Shockwave, Soundwave, Devastator, or the Dinobots in the sequel?

Is Unicron being considered for the sequels, or are more original ideas going to be pursued?

Will the classic G1 theme be used in some form in the film?

"Mister Bay, how does it feel to be added to the list of soon-to-be-shot directors along with Uwe Boll and Micheal Moore?"

All I want is UNICRON to make an appearance end the end of the movie...that way we can always expect an all out war between him and the TF with violence compared to LOTR/ID4/WARWITHIN/300 style...^__^...who cares if TF bleed oil...lmao

One simple question is all that needs to be asked. 'WHY BAY FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS HOLY WHY?'

My question was:

Why were the red Autobot & purple Decepticon logos replaced with bland steel versions? Do giant alien robots not like color?

I know, it's not much, but I figured he was going to get enough "why does Megatron's design, Starscream's design, & the rest of your decisions about this movie all suck?" questions, so I figured, what's the point?

To be fair, what sensible questions can be asked of a man who has so brazenly disregarded the history of a much loved franchise and in some cases openly mocked the fanbase, without which there would be no market for a film. Banal and inane questions seem well in keeping with the general theme and direction Bay has taken this film. That and he's a poopy pants.
