    Now before you all shoot me off for asking this I got to wondering, what (if any more were needed!) Human characters you would include in TF3?

    The can be from any of the fictions availible.

    What should be done with human characters in third movie:

    - Epps & Lennox - to be killed off (and make US army helpless against decepticons)
    - Leo - to be entirely left out
    - Mikaela - whatever
    - Simmons - may be in
    - Sam - make him a headmaster
    - new human characters: G.B.Blackrock and Circuit Breaker

    Less Humans. The Movie should have more robots, like shroobmaster said.

    Well you kind of have to keep Sam because he's the every man that helps move things along. He's the guy who really doesn't want to be involved but ends up having to be a hero, which isn't a bad story telling device.

    Epps and Lennox are not bad characters. Was too bad they had to be shoved aside for the second film so perhaps for the third film they can be characters again. However if NEST is going to come off as an international team they are going to need more than just American's and a token Brit. Perhaps Epps or Lennox could butt heads with one of the international members to add character to the team.

    Mikaela has been a really weak character. They really need to ramp up the writing for her character if she's going to be hanging around eating up screen time. Yea pretty is nice but I've got the internet so I want a bit of character out of the hot girl.

    Simmons could be dropped and it wouldn't bother me.

    Leo needs to be dropped as he's not really adding anything to the film and he's just so annoying which kind of takes you out of the film to think about how bad the character stinks and ruins any part of the film he's in.

    Any new human characters need to part of a focused disciplined story and not another one of those side trips off to nowhere. I can see the need for new NEST members but more college characters seem like a waste of time.

    TF3 : Circuit Breaker kills Cybertron !

    Or maybe some of Salazar's labrats manage to mutate into cyborgs, avenging
    their loss of humanity on TF's on Cybertron.

    I'd like it if Sam took a bit of a back seat for the next movie. Make Mikaela the human focus this time. Have her relationship with her father explored a bit now he's out of jail. He's a gear head mechanic, perfect character to have along for a father daughter robot adventure. If they have to have Sam in it again then get him kidnapped by the Decepticons at the start of the movie because they believe there might be some residual Allspark energy in him or something (any lame story idea would do) and then let Mikaela and her father run around trying to do the National Treasure bit this time. And they can bring Wheelie along for laughs.
    Dump Leo. Have Simmons working with NEST in some way. Keep Lennox and Epps. Minimal stuff with Sam's parents.

    I really like Lennox and Epps. They are not over the top in any way, just get-it-done soldiers who take working with the Autobots seriously and respectfully. I wouldn't mind that aspect being expanded upon in TF3.

    I think I'd like to see the two human plots come together for three.

    At the end of TF1, everyone was working together and it worked. In ROTF, I felt like if Optimus had said at the beginning, "Hey, I'm gonna go check on Sam." that Lennox and Epps would have shrugged their shoulders and wondered who he was.

    Let's sync the two stories up. Have Sam and Simmons working with/for/in contact with NEST in TF3. With Sam there, the other characters (parents, Mikaela, Leo, etc...) have a gateway into the story without EVERYONE suddenly joining up with NEST.

    No you wouldn't because that was sarcasm go look for somebody that truly wants what I posted.

    Assuming that TF3 is the last in the series, I'd like to see Fig, Glenn, Maggie, and the Secretary of Defense (played by Jon Voight) make a return appearance. If you combine them with the cast of ROTF, I think that would make enough human characters for the third installment.

    As a little idea of my own, though, I'd like to see Lennox's daughter, who has aged between 1 and 3, make some sort of appearance.

    Transformers is all about robots, that's the point. Making a movie with just robots would be more challenging for Michael Bay...

    Wrong. It's all about robots in disguise. Without humans, the concept of them transforming into vehicles becomes utterly pointless.
