    it seems that LdB is a driving force behind having centralized human interactions. I can see his side of things and respect his opinion, but in a movie based on an IP that's mainly non-human characters, you can't sacrifice the IP's core characters because the movie doesn't appeal to you.

    That's my opinion and I'm sure I'll have people agreeing and disagreeing. But looking at the core of what this franchise is all about, LdB is looking to move that core focus and water down what this IP has to offer.

    granted i loved both movies but i can see how unicron will not be included in the third movie. just based on the fact that the largest part of the major fights include the military, the producers and bay will not have a villian that the military can't fight. i didn't minded the army fighting with the autobots but they seem to be the main drive in the battles. also unicron would have to take all the autobots to fight, which will take money, i just don't see how it will be financially sound to do without atleast half a mil in production budget.


    and besides, big d almost destroyed ILM's computers so imagine what unicron would do.

    Isn't Lorenzo the one that wanted the robots not to speak at all?

    I'm cool with human sized robots, but I don't think minicons will be that good in a movie if executed like in Armada.

    I think that was Dreamworks and Para execs who didn't have anything directly to do with the movie.

    Minicons? There is so much more in Transformers lore. Most of which far surpass minicons in...the awesome-factor. Not feeling the minicon love. I like them. I just can't see them in the movie-verse.

    Minicons would be a good way to scare me away from TF3.

    I've been wanting those things to disappear since Armada.

    If you want smaller "partner robots" then hook us up with Headmasters or Targetmasters.

    Oh and people voted for Unicron as most want to see in the 3rd? WTF? Uh, no thanks!

    Mini-cons is only an idea for now, it won't be the most important emphasis of of TF. The big bots will always have a more concentrated focus, considering if they learned there mistakes in ROTF.

    I only hope LdB can listen when people like me want to something specific in the next installment, like getting the Constructicons to return, for instance.

    I also see Dinobots in the film, since they can also satisfy the BIG Eff'n robots category.

    While I'm not sure about it so far, human-size robots that turn into stuff like scooters or spy-planes wouldn't be bad at all.

    Lennox becomes injured and becomes Ironhide's Headmaster. Simmons becomes Sideswipe's. Think of the potential. Lennox + Ironhide = ultimate badass teamup. Simmons + Sideswipe = smart ass + ego. Awesomeness.

    What shit is he saying? HUMAN characters are SOOO important? Minicons are MORE awesome than having the two factions fighting on and in a giant planet-eater? That the humans are his favourite characters? WTF?

    I have said this once, and I shall say it again.


    Just look at the picture to see what I think.
