    So... now that the live action film series is over and done with, what do you think Hasbro has in store for us besides the focus on TFP?

    I mean, I wouldn't mind a reboot or something, but... maybe it wouldn't hurt to come up with a sequel to see how the Autobots cope with their losses and deal with the remaining Decepticons, along with perhaps living amongst humans.

    What do you think is gonna happen?

    Miachel Bay returned Transformers to the big screen. So I'm pretty sure that Hasbro isn't going to sit down and do nothing. Maybe they'll find another director?

    Reboot. Give us a better director, and writers who actually have experience with TF material.

    Reboot is the flavor of the month for hollywood...and based on current reboots (Star Trek, X-men, ect.) I have no problem with reboots being done correctly. However, Reboots need years of dull-ness to be effective.

    Look at TF Prime. Bee's design is very movie based. Thus, Hasbro is behind the movie-verse and mature themed designs. As such I dont see a reboot coming until Prime has run its course and the current acceptable designs from the Bay-verse has smoldered out.

    Reboot it or contnue it. Which ever one they choose to do, I hope they make the Decepticons pratically invincible when fighting humans, unless they are protoforms.

    Well, Shockwave kinda went out like a punk. Not to mention poor Barricade got his eyes shot out. Oh, and SS got his head blown up, though that was by one of Que's grenades, so I can let it slide a little.

    Shockwave was a disappointment... unfortunately apart from the people here no one gives a crap about Barricade. Plain and simple. In a down economy people want to see good over evil more than ever, and they want to see it for as cost effective as possible lol. Dont expect to see formidable Cons until we have a formidable economy lol.

    I dont see reboot happening, Hasbro is there to make money. To just clear out all 3 movies ( evenharder is number 3 is a hit aswell) and reboto this major franchise aint happening. It will be like Pirates...a 4 will come later on. Same design, new kids and fans to cath in.

    However new writer and such is of course possible and director but the design I hardely see them change.

    I really hope they keep Krueger because he did a great job writing DOTM.

    Because Pirates 4 did so much good for that franchise....

    you can reboot like X-men or Batman and completely re-invent a series...Hasbro at the end of the day cares about maintaining their staying power within their ticker symbol...if a reboot makes more sense over a rushed 4th movie I say reboot...

    Oh, you're one of those guys. If he were to write the movie, everyone would die, jks. He could probably do it, it would definitely make Target:2006 possible.

    At the very least, a TF movie with Furman at the writer's desk wouldn't have puerile humor in it. Or Shockwave and Starscream getting punked. :lol

    I'd love to see the writers behind TFA write it, but that's just me.

    Agreed. However Megabattimus, without that humor, how do you sell the movie to the masses? And Im sorry but without that humor you have no audience. No audience, no Galvatron or whatever other film story you want. Hate to break it to you but negative comments or not there is a reason Bay is one of the top 5 in the biz...

    have not sceen it so cant tell.

    yes but the x-men trilogy just went downhill and dont get me started with Batman that lost it after the two first ones.

    so far there is no need to reboot the Tf movie universe except by fanboys who dont like the movie because it is not what a real Tf movie is according to them .

    Oh, Isenberg would be a great choice, as well. His writing features a very nice blend of seriousness and whimsy that might appeal to those people who find Furman's approach too grim.
