    Ok, I'm going to put this out there right now: this topic has the potential to get out of hand so please be mature about it.

    What if, a Gobots movie (live action) was released a year or so after TF3 (sometime close) and got GOOD critical reception and a better acceptance from the general audience.

    How would you feel about such a thing? After seeing that guy who is supposably doing TF3 concept art website, there is Gobot concept art resembling movieverse. I for one would be a little disappointed but not enraged or anything

    Well, I'd lobby for the guy helming this Go-Bots show to make a TF remake, of course.

    I'd face/palm but be otherwise delighted. I watched Go-Bots just as often as TF. The latter just had more prolific toy distribution where I grew up, and the former didn't stick around..

    I would agree with this, but at least wait a while before starting it. You really shouldn't reboot a movie series within 10 years of the last movie coming out IMO

    I think for the most part the Transformers Movies have done great considering what it could have turned into.

    That being said, I think a GoBots movie would not even get off the ground. Why? Transformers was a successful 80's Property; Go Bots...not so much.

    I understand that this is a "what if" scenario that you are proposing, but it will never happen simply because Hasbro owns the rights to Gobots and they know that Gobots is way too obscure of a franchise to make a successful movie out of so they wouldn't bother. Transformers beat Gobots back in the day when Gobots was not owned by Hasbro. There will never be any kind of Gobots revival outside of the occassional repaint within a Transformers sub line.

    I think there are better odds of Gobot characters showing up in a Transformer movie (since Hasbro owns the intellectual property, I think, as was mentioned a couple posts ago) than the Gobots getting their own movie.

    I'm going to have to disagree on this.

    The Hollywood business model is always changing so saying a franchise must sit on a shelf for 10 or 15 years is the old Hollywood thinking.

    People are used to things changing fast now. With the rate of change in both technology and social change what used to take maybe a generation to change can change in just a few short years. With so many re-imaginings of TV shows or film franchises being relaunched to improve them people just seem more open to hey we are going to change things.

    So the suits have started saying hey while we still have the brand recognition why don't we try to rework this thing so it has more appeal and a bigger box office? Instead of letting the Hulk set forever lets just reboot it after one film and see if we can get it right this time. Spiderman is getting a reboot after three films. Superman is getting a reboot. It's just part of the business model now not to let franchises just sit after they have put so much into them if some creative team out there can improve the franchise now so it can make money.

    I kinda agree with you as I was going to mention those same movies as examples, also as a good example of constant reboots you can look at the Batman movies. There are some real gems in that area, so for me it all depends on who handles it and how it's treated.

    Back on subject I never knew anything about the Go-bots so I would see it and then be a little upset because it would show what Transformers could have been. Of course critical acclaim and fan appeal are generally two different things at times, so if I like it, I like it.
