    This goes back to Feb 15th, so this may have been posted already. And frankly it's just speculation from a supposed "inside source", and nothing we don't already know or haven't already heard, but I'll put this here just in case anyone missed it.

    Insiders Say TRANSFORMERS 4 Will Have More Action, Less Jokes| Badass Digest

    A source close to the production of Transformers 4 has cleared up some elements about the film. While the term 're-imagining' was thrown around, the fourth film will be a straight up sequel to the last movie. It just won't be told through Witwicky's point of view. As to whose point of view it will be told through, that's unclear right now, but it's also unclear which - if any - human characters will be back.

    The thing I was really curious about was how this 're-imagining' impacted the tone of the movie. The three films so far have been remarkably violent and dark for a series based on toys, and I wouldn't expect that to change. What I would expect to change is the humor - Bay seems intent on cutting down on the goofy, tone-deaf comedy bits that have seen some of our finer actors pissed on and tickled by giant robots.

    "Michael realized it needs to be more like the last hour [of Dark of the Moon]," this source told me. So expect lots of big action, lots of carnage, lots of military badasses, very few silly bits.


    We'll see how much of that actually comes about.

    Eh. At least give Dino an alt mode that's conducive to BEING MADE INTO A TOY

    As well, I am slightly disappointed about 'no returning humans'; Epps and Lennox would be awesome as main humans.

    Just have Agent Simmons be the main human character, he was the most interesting of the humans anyway.

    Trust me, until we even have a finished script and some kind of official report on the film, I'm taking everything I read until then with a dumptruck-worth of salt.

    *Goes to unfriend after finishing post*
    That's NOT THE REASON. See that Speed Stars toy? See ROTF Sideways' way out? The reason was that they were moving on to Prime and no longer wanted to focus on Movie toys. I'm sure we'll get a Mirage/Dino toy for TF4.

    Dude if Dino was ever going to get a mainline toy, we would've heard about it at like, Botcon 2011. Being a Ferrari screwed him hard; make him something else in the next one.

    No Simmons makes me weep from every crack, crevice and hole on my body.

    Oh? You mean a toy I'm talking about that wouldn't be out until 2014? TF4 wasn't even confirmed back then.

    I'm saying that if they make a Mirage/Dino for TF4, it sure as hell wouldn't be shown at Botcon 2011.

    Because it never existed due to problems with Ferrari. The entire main cast all had mainline toys known about by at least SDCC. Dino was never going to be made, again, because of complications with Ferrari and Mattel.

    Then why did he get a Speed Stars toy? All I'm saying is that we don't really know IF he'll get a toy or not. I'm trying to stay Optimistic, but remember, I'm purely speculating.

    The speed stars toy was a weird fluke. If Dino returns in TF4, a new alt mode is the only way he'll be guaranteed an accurate mainline toy.
