well let's see. The Greek mythologies have been around for like forever and it still exists up to this day. Even then, the Transformers live-action has just been around for 10 years, unlike Superman, Batman, Captain America, Godzilla, etc. Transformers, just like those iconic characters, will be around for generations. And like I said, the live-action franchise has not really been utilized to full effect yet. right now we're dealing with the Bayformers and this continuity. We will have future iteration of live-action that, like in the previous incarnations, will continue to re-invent themselves. and when they do, it's not gonna be as hokey as human-based superhero characters as long as they stay with the basics. And the beauty of Transformers is, the franchise is not just centered on one character.. although Optimus Prime, Megatron and Bumblebee take center-stage, there are other characters that can be utilized.
