    Translated: Bay will thumb through a few issues of a few comics, read a few articles on Wikipedia, and then BLANTANTLY MISINTERPRET IT.

    I don't believe it until I see the movie myself..but I guess it's positive when people other than Bay are talking about such changes.

    :lol  I guess this is true.

    More story behind bigger explosions I presume. Hopefully we get to see more of Prime, and focus on any new characters as well as the characters from the previous film who we barely saw. Less stupidity and more character focus...didn't think the twins were as bad as the internetz made them out to be, but I didn't like how they got so much more screen time than others like Ratchet, Sideswipe, the bike sisters, and Jolt.

    Essentially everything we've heard so far is "Transformers 3 will tell a story". Everything they said just sounds like standard studio responses and could have been said for either movie already made. I'm looking forward to it, but there really hasn't been any tangible story info released yet.

    Me too, oddly. Maybe I'm just putting my cynical hat on the stand for the time being...

    I guess this is part of the continuity thing they suggested with War For Cybertron.
    I'm sceptical about them sticking to it in the long run. The line has been chop and change for years.



    I'm about movie neutral, but this statement just seem utterly eroneous to me.

    Nice if true, no surprise if not. Let's wait and see.

    The characters part is obvious, but 'core mythology' could mean any number of things? Maybe more of the pre-earth back story will be discussed, like Megatrons rise to power? Would be kind irrelevant what with WFC coming though.

    I just want Prime and his guys stopping Megatron and his guys from taking over a rocket base.

    Save the "mythology" for the comics.

    Cool. I'll be looking forward to it if its true.

    Some character development for Screamer, Ironhide and Sideswipe would make me a happy Orio.

    Hmm, why do I get the vaguest impression that this is Hasbro putting their collective foot down in terms of how their IP is perceived by the movie-going public, especially given the criticisms aimed at ROTF?

    I feel good about this because they're analyzing what failed in the last movie according to critics and fans (storyline, plot, character development) and they're going to enhance that with the third film.

    I'm not getting my hopes up, but if they're sincere, it's a step in the right direction.
