    No, being the pyrotechnics director for the movie would be the best job ever.

    I'd rather just be the main director. Then I could supply ideas for characters, and I'd have to approve them, but I could also be involved with pretty much everything else, including music, special effects, and editing. I could even pull an Alfred Hitchcock and make cameo appearances.

    I really wouldn't want the job of picking the robots for the movies.

    So many great characters in Transformers history to pick from and with a live action film you are going to be limited on how many of them you can use. No way to get all the best of the best into a film so it's hard choices about who to use and who to cut.

    Then no matter what kind of good choices you make you have to live with disappointing some fans because they were the unlucky fans who didn't get their favorite character into the film.

    Between having to make GM happy and making the Pentagon happy that's also going to cut your choice of alt modes so I'd rather pick the alt mode for a cartoon where you had total freedom to pick anything you wanted for an alt mode.

    Pretty much doing any job (other than maybe like working at *insert random store name*) that directly deals with the involvement of Transformers would be the best job ever....*sigh* T_T I hate my job.

    I think there might be more red tape to go through regarding alt modes and things like that. It can't be as easy as saying, 'I want this character, to be this car, and do this.'

    You have to field inquiries/demands/etc from the Director/ILM/Hasbro, and some other people.

    I'd rather be the guy from Hasbro who doesn't do anything with the movies but still gets a large cut of the profits anyway.

    Well, it is. People are still buying the toys, right? Well, all the toys that aren't a billionth repaint of Bumblebee, at any rate.

    I agree. The director can have most of these jobs and makes the final decision on designs and what gets left in the movie.

    BUT- no matter what you do, people will still find a reason to hate you and complain.
