ok so we know that BAY is out but that doesnt mean they cant continue on, itll just be a different directing style and the biggest thing is the action might not be as epic. we also know shia is out but that doesnt mean sam has to be out. so anyway i was watching the old G1 movie and it got me thinking. to continue with the current movies you could do one of these things. have it set many years later that way sam is much older to where you can replace shia and still continue sams adventure with the autobots, or sam and carly have a son and sam puts bee in charge of protecting him. i also thought itd be nice to find some way for the decepticons to turn megs into galvatron, maybe some big bad con assumed command after megs death and discovered dark energon/blood of unicron and uses it to bring back megs as galvatron and from there galvatron starts a search for more dark energon to bring his old troops back from the dead to rebuild his army.
