    I've been re-watching DOTM and for the first time I've noticed an Autobot symbol on the jet which happens to be Michael Bay's.

    So should his jet be an Autobot in TF4?

    Not really.

    People were happiest casting Bay as Warpath.

    Eh, I'm torn on the matter.

    On one hand, I think it'd be a neat little easter egg. The fancy white private jet with the Autobot insignia could make a cool Air Raid, Wing Saber, or whatever other aerial Autobot. Heck, go crazy and have a brief shot of Bay himself as the hologram pilot. Though then we'd have to prepare ourselves for the inevitable "private jet character shows up for 45 seconds throughout a 2.5 hour movie, has 3 lines of dialogue and is never seen again"-scenario... If it were a relatively prominent character, then I'd be all for it. But the chances of that happening would be slim.

    And on the other hand, I can just imagine that complaints and countless ensuing threads about "Bay is a jerk, he'd rather have his own jet be a character than [insert whatever individual robot character was left out of the movie]!", "Why couldn't he make it [insert one aerial Autobot here] instead of [insert a different aerial Autobot here]?!", "Why didn't he put that character in one of the previous movies here?!", "He's so self-centered to make his private jet a character!!!", "It was already in DotM for like 3 seconds, CONTINUITY!!1!". :lol 

    Also, I wholeheartedly approve of Bay voicing Bayformers Warpath. :bay

    If anything, it should be nothing but a throwaway gag. But basically every Autobot we've seen so far has had ties to the US Military, not Platinum Dunes, so I think it'd be hard to fit it in.

    Michael Bay himself should be an Autobot character.

    He already was. Why do you think Ratchet blew up Cybertron?

    We haven't seen any like that so far in the movies, and I don't think that fits in with the styles of characters we HAVE seen, but yes, that could be a possibility.

    I approve of this.

    That's one of the bonus features that we're missing - Michael Bay getting into some Ratchet make-up. "Hehehehe... I've blown up an asteroid, I've blown up Cuba...but now I get to blow up a PLANET! Ain't nobody gonna' take that away from me!"

    I'd rather have his jet be a regular old jet. If that was a robot oh boy.

    Its an on-going 'joke' because of Bay's love of ruining characters and his love of exploding things for no reason.
