    Do you think there would just be slight changes or do you think the human storyline was specifically designed for Carly? What do you think would've been different?
    (and let's discuss Carly and Mikaela, not Megan and Rosie, please)

    I think Optimus would have died if it had been Mikaela instead of Carly, if you know what I mean.

    EDIT: Hadn't read the title correctly, as it said human storyline.

    Well, I think it would have changed, because Mikaela didn't have a high-ranking job at the government, so she wouldn't have been able to work at that white fancy building, meaning she would have never met Dylan, which would have completely messed up the plot.

    We'd have gotten more scenes of Wheelie humping her leg, probably.

    Because Mikaela wouldn't have stood up to Megatron, so Sentinel would have killed Optimus.

    Disagree completely.

    That line has honestly always struck me as a Mikaela line.

    probably a scene of her slumped over Bumblebee's hood as her first scene.

    Brains and wheelie would both hit on her (for humor..?)

    ....yeah. the plot wouldn't have been any more interesting. It would actually be very repetitive. She's just the hot one who comes along in Sam's transformers adventures.

    It wasn't exactly a government job. It was a job that involved restoring antique cars. We all know that Mikaela's father taught her how to fix cars, so it would have made sense.

    She probably would've been the one restoring them, instead of just being Dylan's assistant.

    Ironhide would have survived.

    I could see Mikeala sacrificing her life standing infront of Ironhide and telling Sentinel: " You shall not pass!!"

    But with all honesty, not much. :thumb

    Mikaela is more rough around the edges than Carly, and also seemed to be more intrigued by the Autobots. I think that she would have brought a dynamic to the storyline that Carly couldn't, but would not have been as romantic and "squishy" as Carly, either.

    Honestly, I know that Megan Fox is difficult to get along with, but I'd rather seen her in the film than RHW.

    Uh, I think Dylan focused on Carly is because he would use her to get to Sam. Same scenario would have worked with Mikaela, and it would have made even more sense. He would have hired her as a mechanic to get his classics restored, and still try and use her to get to Sam.

    Yes, same here. I think the movie would have been stronger. I tried to like Carly, perhaps if she herself was more of a grease monkey, not afraid to get her hands dirty, I could have related to her more. But she was just a princess, not a warrior, and not real like Mikaela was. Personally, I would have liked Mikaela to be in the movie, and the roles reversed, Sam is the one captured and she is the one trying to rescue him. It would have been a unique twist to the normal cliches.

    ^ Agree. Mikaela seemed more real to me as a character. And she was a quick thinker and more of a fighter. I could easily see her in that role reversal.

    I wonder what's the chance with getting Fox back to reprise her role in TF4, if Bay is not going to be directing.

    Better boobies...maybe Mikaela would have joined the military after dumping Sam,(she's blue collar enough character wise) and Sam finds out her unit is in Chicago when the cons strike giving him motivation to go "save her"
