    Interesting how many "fandom" personalities were invited. Even if Bay & co don't give 2 cents worth of "our" opinions, seems Hasbro doesn't share that mindset.


    Mods, I scrolled thru movie dis. threads, and didn't see an update. Apologies if this isn't right spot.

    The bolded part IMPO speaks volumes, and judging by Hasbro's reaction to the intial question. It seems they did take notice of it.

    But the fact that he's PUBLICLY admitting he judged wrongly speaks strongly of the movie itself. Since that "Transformers 101" stunt was a pretty strong statement in and of itself

    The fact that he did compare it to ID4 does kinda bug me - that was what I assumed the first time I saw the trailer. It'll be cool to see them exsist in a live action sense, but I hated ID4.

    We can only hope the movie is as successful as ID4

    $ 306,169,268 - US, That's $391,825,929 adjusted for inflation.
    $816,969,268 - Worldwide

    I would be happy if Transformers did that well. :)

    Yeah, that surprised me as well, even though I think that he was abusing his 'power' (it IS one of, if not the largest TF sites) and showing his arrogance (he claimed he was the representative of the fandom).

    Contrary to what some continue to believe, Bay & co DO actually care about the fans and have done everything short of a remake of the G1 pilot. That's why they rewrote the script to better match the cartoon/comic personalities. That's why they hired Peter Cullen last Summer to reprise the most famous role in the franchise's history. That's why the TFing sound FX from the cartoon was added to the film. If you guys don't get that yet, there's no hope that you ever will catch on.

    I liked his review a lot. Honestly, I have precisely the same point of view regarding the designs, but if he says they work, it fills me with hope that this movie will be a great experience. Truth be told, from all forum owners among the fandom his is the only opinion I find "involved" enough - as many professionals would choose not to voice in favor or against anything, for, well, professional reasons. I think it's nice how he doesn't immediately give in to the hype, how he says the movie staff still could have done them differently, but the way they did it was also great.

    I hope so.
