    It just weird because the Decepticons always outnumbered with The Autobots in DOTM, ROTF, I mean the whole army vs a few bots? So do u thinks there will be a army of Autobots in the 4th movie?

    More robots equal less individual robot screen time and less robot character development

    More robots means you have to give each robot a G1 episode character name and if they get killed off easily, then fans complain that this character and that character died without doing anything substantial in the movie. See what happened to Arcee and her sisters??

    Remember, less equals more. I say focus on 4 or 5 autobots only.

    In a good story with suspense, you always want the enemy to outnumber the good so that it leaves you on the edge of your seat hoping that the guys can make it out of this alive.

    With an autobot army, the director has to decide is this going to focussed on one single character like how they focussed on Wolverine in X-Men or are they going to give equal screentime to all the autobots. And if they do, then there is no screen time for the bad guys.

    In the end, less is more.

    They seem to have trouble making weak good guys so if there was an army of Autobots the movie would be over in a few seconds.
