oh christ !

is there seriously demand for a bumblebee movie ?

i mean Fking bumblebee !

if your gonna concentrate on on origin story of one of the main characters surely to GOD its prime !

i'll be hnonest i was having a hard enough time going to the regular films now as they continually disapoint on everything past the effects front.

theres got to be some sort of mad karma going on that the films seem to be getting worse inversely porportional to the rise in quality of the comics.

:D :D :D

i wont condemn it completely and will wait to see what theyre selling us in the trailers but TBH im first reponse upon hearing this was "God no ".

Watch you guys finally get a movie set entirely on Cybertron with no humans, but it's the Bumblebee movie. :P

Though, would it just be retelling the events of the Movie Prequel, or would they write a new "How Bee lost his voice" backstory? :-?

aye but Bay would never do a no human's movie! he hasn't the last 4 times so why would he now?

& it doesn't matter who writes the story! coz if Bay's in charge, he'll just want things done HIS way.

& YES! there's nothing to suggest at this time that Bay'll be in charge of those OTHER movies! but as long as they keep on throwing money at it, he'll keep on coming back to the directors chair.

i'd love a cybertron only film as much as the next guy.

but the problem with the movies set on earth isnt that humans are in it. its that humans are the focus of the films on earth, when they really should be just the foil to get to the transformery goodness.

if hasbro did a film using IDWs "infiltration" and "escalation" trades as inspiration it'd kick arse.

"infiltration" went ALONG way to establishing megatron as a bad ass in the IDW universe, used intrigue, drama, had some great quips/banter , and gave the impression of a larger TF universe out there without the need to actually SEE it, and did it all with relatively few "set" peices and a human cast that complimented the TF action.

it'd probably cost half of what age of extiction did to do it.

i mean jesus who DOESNT want to see that made just to see that "take your punishment like a decepticon" line !

:D

Nope, I'm intrigued, interested, and sort of excited. A different kind of backstory, and I'm interested to see where things go :BOT:

You think that Bayverse's Timeline isn't ridiculous enough already?

Well, the ideal option would be for them to adapt the Movie Prequel into film form, but as it's not something they're obligated to do, they could always make a new backstory that ignores the Movieverse comics (as unpleasant as that'd probably be since the comics were the primary medium that attempted to patch up all the continuity holes between the films themselves).

In a little bit of news, which probably only counts as trivia at this stage, Collider had a quick chat at SXSW with Robert Kirkman, co-creator of The Walking Dead comics series among other things, about his involvement with the Goldsman-led Transformers writers room - which he only attended for a day, as personal matters took priority. See more below, including the embedded video!

As you can see in the video, Kirkman says that he loves Transformers, and became a part of the writing team after a casual lunch wth di Bonaventura, who optioned his comic Invincible (the comic adaption list that Perri mentions in the video is Dave Trumbore’s 10 Comic Books That Need an R-Rated Adaptation). Still, though he’s no longer a part of the project (which is a bummer because it seems insane and his involvement made it seem somehow less so), he says,

“I have heard from the people that are in that room there are a lot of amazing Transformers things coming, and I’m very happy as a fan to see what comes from that.”
