    1. That the Decepticons don't present as credible a threat as they should.

    2. That robot characterization is scant.

    For me the look of the robots, and VW not letting them make Bumblebee a Beetle

    What I hated was that they did a pretty good job of establishing the Autobots in the first film, and then in ROTF....suddenly these characters are no more than cameos or background extras through much of the film.

    That was my biggest gripe- I cared a bit in regards to the 2007 film, but the 2009 film, I just wasn't feeling the emotion when Mikaela is crying over Sam. It had as much emotion as Liv Tyler 'pouting' out 'That-is-my FATHER UP THERE!!' in Armageddon.

    For me its that jazz had died

    Jetfire wasn't like he was in G1 but you would expect that

    For the toys just wish that the legends were cooler

    Yes, that was my biggest let down. . they could've just had Barricade fight him one las time. rampage is like way heavier and larger than BB. Realistically if BB confronted Rampage he would have to call Ratchet for a backup.

    Anyway, my biggest let down in Bayverse? The manner in how the Constructicons were portrayed.

    They had no screen time, they did not combine to form Devastator and Devs got blasted after only climbing up a pyramid. .:eek: 

    Uh. . . yeah.... . . that pretty much ate me whole right there.

    Everything else Is has been awesome, especially with the new aesthetics that Bay/Art Dept. has created! ! :bay

    The Decepticons have been a big disappoint. With such a huge budget and long running times you would think they could make some classic film villains, but they just feel easily brushed aside as soon as the good guys need to start winning.

    I've also been disappointed that so many bots don't get something to say. Voice actors can't be that expensive and a few line would have added some personality to the robots.

    While it's kind of a touchy topic I'm also disappointed that the films haven't been as friendly toward the old fans as some other film franchises have. Sometimes it kind of feels like the films are for new fans only.

    Starscream's design is also high on my list of disappointments.

    the worst thing for me is that:
    everyone is still bitching that jazz is dead
    everyone is comparing it to G1
    everyone hates how real the transformers look
    everyone is confused about devastators balls (bay is explaining that devastator relies completely on instincts and looks like a gorilla on purpose including....those things)

    ok that last one was a bit random

    I'm glad they didn't, Beetles don't fit bumblebee's current character and they're just goofy looking.

    nobody is going to see a scene where a yellow bug rips around a corner and drifts into a decepticon, tripping it, as "AWESOME" worthy

    My one big disappointment is that Devastator was not at all used to his full potential. If the technology was not available to do such a colossal character in a cost effective manner, then they should have just held off. Imagine Devs mangling that skyscraper in DOTM...

    Aside from that, I'm more than happy with the movies.

    For me the humor that ruined ROTF for me. Or maybe just ROTF in general who knows.

    jazz is dead
    soundwave voice sucks
    no individual bots combine into devy.
    games suck so far. hopefully high moon saves the tf3 game.
    no sunstreaker, prowl, and cliffjumper.

    Ihe inapropriate humor spoiled it for me. Why fill up sceentime with stupid jokes when instead you could be developing characters? The fighting/action was great though.

    That Bay valued money over artistic integrity and forced ROTF to be made as soon as it was.


    Granted, yeah, people's jobs were on the line, and I totally respect his decision as a director, but man, just think of the benefit had they waited a year.

    • The Fallen.
    • Bumblebee not talking in ROTF (I guess we'll see if he does in DOTM).
    • Jolt not getting enough screen time.
    • The Arcee sisters dying.
    • Starscream doesn't question Megatron's authority enough, nor does he have any character development in general. The general audience probably doesn't even remember him being in the movie.

    1) Decepticons being killed so easily
    2) No in-film explanation as to what happened to Barricade at end of 07 Movie
    3) Jazz dying in the 07 Movie
    4) The Twins hogging up the screen-time in ROTF
    5) They didn't use the original design they had for Arcee
