    The big question is how violently does his cameo end? I like the idea of him being flicked personally. Just no explosions cause that's what he's known for.

    I think it depends on how much he's willing to poke fun at himself. Being flicked is what came to mind as well, though. Maybe he can't shut up about explosions and some Decepticon flicks him and he lands on something that explodes. Very meta. :p

    How about five new movies starring Nitro Zeus as the lead based on his 30 seconds of character development thus far

    awesome idea or awesomest idea?

    That would be almost exactly like his cameo in the first movie, though.

    Even more meta then. Let's flick Michael Bay in every movie from now on.

    That would get really boring really fast, though.

    I hate comments like these as they add absolutely nothing to the discussion. It's a cheap response from actually answering the question fueled by the distaste of the franchise. You can dislike the movies, but there are obviously things they did get right or at least one thing right. Completely ignoring positive contributions is not going to do the next movieverse reboot any favors.

    Edit: I forget to add what I really was going to add before seeing those comments. In regards to what I do want to see carry over:

    - the concept of Barricade
    - the sound design
    - the transforming logo
    - Optimus' mouth
    - for some reason, I really dig their eyes so I'd love to see that return. They just feel much more real when we can see their optics move
    - the kitchen-bots
    - DOTM quality CGI
    - Sentinel's design

    You know what else I hate

    How you weren't even allowed to have reboot discussions while the bayverse was active, you'd be met with hostility

    Funny how things change

    This was fault of a few movieverse fans, which I am aware. I want a reboot for sure, however, we should also give consideration to the things the current movieverse did right to better fortify future endeavors.

    If it looks good on the new designs, sweet I agree, go for it. If it doesn't, meh.

    But yeah I actually like them.

    That's understandable. But what if someone's opinion is that there shouldn't be any things passed on to the reboot? It's not necessarily hateful. I think it's understandable. His opinion is that there shouldn't be any reference to the Bayverse specifically. That seems cool to me.

    There are has to something that he wants to keep from the movieverse. It's a fairly expansive topic. Does he really not want Peter Cullen to return as Optimus?

    You're stretching it here.

    I don't think there has to be even that. And it's ok.

    At this point Dr Beakman has made it clear that he's only on this topic to be a sarcastic troll. We got that he wants nothing to do with the bayverse films instead of a 100% copy out of his second post (and that was pulling teeth), that's all he seems willing to share perhaps we should leave the rest of his comments unresponded to.

    All join the bandwagon. When we were talking about the faults of the movies and that there were certain things that were glaring and obvious and we cried out for a reboot, the responce was: "You dont know nothing". Now everyone (except the die hards who had a stroke when they heard about it) finds it logical.

    Anyway, I too agree that the movie verse should be ignored completely. Too many concepts that clash not only with the Franchise in general, but with even themselves. If they want to keep something from it, they should look directly to its little brother, TF Prime. They can look for good concepts there. It had its flaws, there is no denying it, but the possitives overweighted the negatives.

    Add Barricade in there. He is the only Decepticon asside Megatron with more than 1 quote per appereance (even if its two).

    The more alien esque designs and vibe along with the transformation effects. Also keep the more serious vibe of the war so it'll help the more serious scenes have more weight to them.

    Not everyone's going to agree with this but I really, really, really would love to see this characterization of Optimus show up again. Something about an Optimus that can speak calmly one moment and then rip someone's face off in the next really gets my engine running......yup I'm trash lol

    Personally there's not much the movies brought to the table that I really will miss. The CG quality and the sound design are obviously top notch, but ultimately I want new designs, new motivations, new relationships, more complicated and more variety in personalities, more ongoing rivalries etc.

    Most importantly I want to get as far away from Bays maniac filming style as possible. I'd love a movie with a clear focused narrative we could all enjoy and follow without coming in here and having to argue if things made sense or not.

    I guess I like Bays taste in cars, but after a while you kinda get tired of every car being a generic sports monster

    Ok, I'll give you one, keep Bee as musclecar, I think it suits him. It grew on me.

    Oh, and I enjoy the globe hopping. But really I want to see world hopping too!

    * There were a lot of low angles in the earlier films, which gave a good sense of the size of the bots, like to see more of that too.
