    Ten years.
    Reboot Bayformers now would be a bad idea, everyone thinks on Bayformers when they think in "Transformers", we need to wait for things to cool down, one decade is a good time.

    Honestly? I say keep with Bayformers.

    Keep bayformers.

    For risks involving reboot, see Star Trek. Because the future of that franchise is soley in the hands of J.J. Abrams finishing that trilogy (and unlike Bay, he's done a lot of other non-franchise projects), they're going to be waiting until 2012 or 2013 for Star Trek 2, and probably 2016 for Star Trek 3.

    Be careful what you wish for with a reboot, both in the time it takes and whose hands its been in. Transfandom has been very lucky to get 3 movies since 2007 with one director and one consistent vision. Another director, and movie #2 could be coming out just about now, if ever (see Hulk / The Incredible Hulk).

    You know what bro, I just watched the film and I am totally against a reboot. I felt like there is so much more to Transformers now.

    I left thinking about so many questions...like is Cybertron inhabitable? What Decepticons will strike again? Do the CONS really die?

    If they change a director and bring back the Decepticon trio, I don't have a problem with this TF universe. I'd like to see a director that fleshes out (no pun intended) the Transformers better, and can give a better pacing to his story. And for f*&k's sake, stop wasting Decepticon characters like they're paper bags.

    3 years max. It's too hot of a property to let sit for 5 and especially 10. We probably have another good 2 years worth of tie-in merchandise, then a year where the focus changes to other series (Classics, Prime, whatever else they come up with), then new movies.

    It might have taken Hollywood a long time to attempt reboots of Batman, Super-Man, etc., but look how fast they got on reboots of Spider-Man (a HUGELY successful trilogy), Super-Man (again), and even The Punisher and The Hulk. No way will they let a decade or even half a decade pass before something new comes down the pipe.

    i say.... 2014


    2013s already had a few films announced (ironman 3, Thor 2) and i just think 4 films in 6 years(?) is overkill (borderline SAW territory).

    For a decent franchise, that can work. The first four Bond films were released in subsequent years (62-65), with the longest gap between films being 2 years until Man With The Golden Gun / Spy Who Loved Me (3 year gap).

    Granted, ILM might have something to say about putting together a TF film every year, but I think the market could support it if it did happen :)

    I'd be happy for this universe to continue, in terms of the robot designs etc, what I would like to see is far superior writing and directing... (IMO)

    Bay can crank out some movies in 2 years. I'd say the next director will take 3 years.

    They'll try TF4, the script will be in limbo for years, then a reboot will come.

    = Jurassic Park or Spiderman.

    Dude SAW SUCKS!!!!!

    The Reboot i could see it happening in 2018 at earliest. I give it 5 years till they green light the script.
