    Bah, hate going to amusement parks. Just feels like I'm being robbed. I'd rather stay home and play rollercoaster tycoon or thrillville.

    While I think the prospect of a TF themed ride sounds interesting, I'm not sure I'd go there just for that. Not saying I don't like amusment parks, they just aren't as amusing to me anymore. I plan to go down to Universal eventually, but that won't be for a good 4 or so years from now at the earliest, as their new addition will attract a large amount of people once it opens up, and I'm just going to wait for the excitment to dye down a bit before going. Other than that I really don't plan to go to any amusment parks. Even then that new section is going to be decently sized. This here is just going to be one ride, so unless it was going into a more local amusment park, I won't be going anywhere just for that one ride.

    Bay no support a TF-themed ride at Universal? Well f*** him, then.

    Besides... the ride might be just as cool as the movies.

    I think it's less about that, and more about the fact taht they quoted him for something he never said. I'd be pissed if someone did that to me.

    Bay = win.

    That doesn't seen right to me. I read somewhere that he was behind the project and was gonna help with the design.

    That was probably the article that missquoted him then.

    Sometimes he says yes & sometimes he says no (remember that Blu-ray thing?) <sigh>.

    Maybe he was misquoted somehow..

    Yeah, I was thinking of the blu-ray fiasco as well.

    It sounds to me like he's upset that he wasn't consulted on how the ride will be set up. I just think it's funny that he refers to Optimus as a living person rather then a conceptual intellectual property owned by an entity other than himself.

    That or I'm just in a really jaded POV today.

    The ride will probably not be awesome enough for him to give his backing..

    Hum, upset about something Transformers where you didn't get input and the feeling that part of something you really like is beyound your control. Welcome to Transformers fandom.

    It's misinformation, the ride is actually Bobby Bolivia's lot and you sit in unmoving junkers making 'vroom vroom' noises.

    Except he didn't really like it until he was in control of it.

    On the whole, my response would be... "Care? Me?" It's not like his opinion makes any difference; it's not his property.

    That IS an interesting way of phrasing it...however, corporate types rarely care about the spirit of anything as long as they can copy and make money off it. Won't matter to them if he's involved or not.
