    I always find it interesting how often he states "me/my" or "I/I'm" in regards to what he's working on and his techniques in interviews. Statements like "...I'm in the middle of launching my three TV shows..." reads a bit different for me than just saying "I'm in the middle of launching three TV shows..."

    It's normal. For any Director, whatever he or she is working on is his or her baby. It's something they are very proud of. That's why they address their projects as "My/Mine".

    With all due respect, Mr. Bay, the franchise doesn't need you to give it "lasting legs." Before you came along Transformers had a television show whose ratings were tops for its age range and time slot (before CN moved it to 6 am), toys for said series were best-sellers, adult collectors were being treated to new collector's edition reissues of old toys on US shelves, and the new TF comic book was selling like hot cakes. What you have done has altered Transformers forever, so that Bumblebee will never again be the spunky little bot with the can-do attitude, but will be the mute muscle car. You've made such a rich franchise more about giant explosions than rich characters and mythology. I'll admit that you did a much better job with Dark of the Moon, but I really wish you had left well enough alone and walked away satisfied. While I was pleased to see live action incarnations of Transformers, I really wish you would just stop.

    Seriously though, I don't think I'll be religiously following Transformers 4 news. While part of me doesn't really think that Transformers 4 will redeem Bayverse in any way, I'll still be at the cinema on opening day.

    Bay did said this is going to be his Last Transformers, but not the last installment of the franchise as he said once he's going to leave it open for the "next guy"

    Well Bay did wanted to stop making Transformers with the third film, but Hasbro and the Studios wanted bay to do another one.

    "Lasting legs..." SERIOUSLY

    A 30 year franchise that has spanned the globe and been a top seller in it's field needs "The Great Bay" to give it, well ANYTHING. Get the hell over yourself already. Let me guess, this time the transformers are going to be edgy and from another...oh wait. Um, theyer going to be mutated turles, no thats not right. Uh.....

    This is going to blow an entire Zoo full of animal balls...AGAIN.

    This. As a Director, it is MY movie, MY actors, MY sets, not THE.

    Then again, to call Michael Bay a director is, well he makes good sploshions.

    4 words:
    "Beast Wars the Movie"
    sounds neat right?
    then add:
    "A Michael Bay movie- Directed by Michael Bay, written by Michael Bay, produced by Michael Bay, scored by Linkin Park & Michael Bay, starring Michael Bay"
    ruined forever

    TRU were not exactly chomping at the bit for reissues before Paramount came along.
    ...and VW told Hasbro and Takara to take a running jump during the planning of Alternators. Long before Bay got involved.

    To all the haters saying the franchise doesn't need Bay, I do agree to some extent, but you can't deny that Transformers has absolutely blown up since the first movie hit. This forum alone has gained a TON of new members since 2007 (and booms with each new release) and we've gotten so many toys both movie and classic that we probably wouldn't have otherwise.
