    Michael Bay.com, Bay posted a quick comment on the Transformers 2 ShoWest Montage that is getting pulled left and right from the internet (sadly). Thanks to Mcat for the heads-up.

    The Showest footage was pulled down because it was just a 12-hour thing.

    I just wanted the fans to get a taste of what we have been making for a year and a half because we have been so quiet. The piece was cut about a month ago for this Showest thing I accepted this past month - so as you can see many of the shots were far from being finished renders. This dinky little site received over 1,500,000 hits and 550,000 downloads in this short time. Anyway the trailer is being printed today and coming out on Wolverine and Star Trek. 64 days left!

    Michael

    I agree, the guys a bit of a prat, but I'll give him the benefit of the doubt cos he's bought one of my childhood fantasies to life.

    Wait so he's a jerk for being cool enough to release some footage? The fact that it was a "limited release" shouldn't mean anything.

    Err, no, not what I meant at all. What I meant by that was that he's a prat the way he goes about things (have you seen any of his other films, the DVD extras show him in a somewhat negative light).

    Personally, I'm quite happy with the amount of info - or lack thereof -thats trickling out now.

    I actually like that he's a "prat". At least he doesn't put on a fake Hollywood "smile for the cameras!" act.

    He's a little like Humphrey Bogart. Doesn't give a shit about what people think about him. Fine by me :)

    Because, you know, who else could that be posting on his account?!

    I love how he doesnt put on a fake face for hollywood and always shoots exactly how he wants too, NICE AND FAST! I dont think its a big deal that they took down the showest footage as like he said a lot of it was unedited film. I just cant wait for the new trailer and hope its a well edited one with some yet unseen footage.

    Bay is a type of guy who doesn't beat around the bush. He always means business, and doesn't hold back.

    That's what I like about him.

    Ditto, most people are not themselves in front of the camera for interviews, most stars are just dicks honestly and so many people buy in to their fake shit its sad, you really can't judge a person till you actually know them, not just see them on tv.

    we should rename this thread " I love Michael Bay because ........" lol.

    cmmon people you really dont know him or his motives. Stop pretending like he is not trying to put a good face on himself for the movie. He has been pitching the movie for the past month now in trying to soften up that image of him not giving a damn what anyone thinks.

    Maybe I m wrong but I just look at directors and holly wood as all about the money its the only thing there is for them.

    Some of you sound like you want to hang out with him like he is your new best freind and all im saying is do a reality check on yourselves.

    i think its cool what he did, he could of posted nothing and left us waiting but he didnt he gave us that awesome footage for a short time, it was for the dedicated followers to see and plus its still around in torrents an stuff which im sure he knew would happen too.

    bay is a hero, he makes what he wants and enjoys it and so do i. entertainment is what he provides

    i'll say it, he's a jerk and a asshole but i'm still gonna enjoy this movie he made.

    i wonder after seeing megatron in the clip in a few places like in woods a empty factory and kicking starscreams ass on top of a highrise. is he still gonna stick to that megatron only makes a brief cameo in a b4 the war or history of the primes lie he was spreading
