I have had this thought for quite a while about this movie where basically at some point a leaked version hits the net and everyone obtains it watches and fills with either dread or joy. This is the reality of current time we live in and for the movies that come out, for instance Revenge of the Sith. In Sith's case the leaked movie actually, in cases of people i know, actually made them want to see it in the theater cause it was actually a decent flick compared to what they thought of the prior 2 and the downloaded version was a terrible transfer. I know some that vowed not to go and saw it 2 times instead. I think the same can be held true especially for this movie and i think the dangerous thing is that no matter how its spun this is a G1 reincarnated movie. The character names situation and groupings are there to attract that crowd of that fan base. The only things differant are there is no ark, BB is now a camaro (good move actually), some of the Deceps are new. and spike is now called sam. So the jury is still out on the redesigns and how they will sit with the crowd and the casual movie goer but it will have a major affect. Although G1 will not make or break this ultimately do you feel most of you will wait to hear about or see the movie before spending your cash to watch transformers by Michael Bay? Or are we all lining up at the Midnight showing together ?
