    TFA Sari transplanted into Bayverse would be kinda neat, depending on how they execute the idea. Would give a pretty darn good reason for the main human character to be the supposed female teen in TF4 and to involve her in the Cybertronian war. That and I never liked how they just introduced Pretender Alice in ROTF and then we never hear about what was the deal with her (a Con masquerading as a human) ever again.

    Soundwave I hope returns in some form. Maybe he backed up his consciousness in that orbitting satellite he hacked into back in ROTF, or perhaps another (unseen) minion (like Ratbat) that survived the battle of Chicago.

    I hope if they film there it'll last through June. I was planning on maybe taking a trip up to Chicago this summer. Although I wish they'd have the battle in Miami. It's closer lol.

    I agree! It would make sense, but when does the club do anything that does! Botcon a couple weeks before SDCC, retarded!

    The "Hasbro Script"

    The "Hasbro Script" as Bay called it, had a few scenes in Chicago.

    Hopefully it'll just be showing the aftermath of DOTM and not the movie fully taking place in Chicago.

    Although I think it would be interesting to see the citizens and government coping with the fallout of the battle in Chicago.

    I have a feeling that'll be one of the main building blocks of the movie. Kind of like the aftermath scenes in The Avengers, but instead of 30 seconds, more like a good first quarter/half of the movie.

    I like how it book ends....or well book continues (in this case). As it ended in Chicago back in Chicago.

    I actually think this is a good idea since the movies rarely carry over baggage from one film to the next. 4 years later in a rebuilding Chicago in a world where it's common knowledge that there's an alien race of sentinent robot beings hiding out on the planet.

    If they do it right, you could go with anti-transformer sentiment, cons making deals with other countries, rebuilding Chicago (which the Autobots will probably have to take some heat for even tho' they saved it and the planet) among other things.

    I'd like to see if they play up Optimus having a heavy heart over all of the destruction DotM caused as there's a chance to show some feeling and consequences over it.

    Not to mention I imagine the cons and more than a few Autobots (much like how in TF: Prime) aren't exactly happy with OPtimus destroying half of Cybertron.

    Lots of angles to play with. Will they is the question.

    I'm honestly leaning towards "they will" due to Kruger coming back to write.

    *EDit* I say "they will" due to Orci and Kurtzman not being around again and so the tone will probably be closer to DotM and maybe 07.

    Maybe after all the damage that Chicago received in DOTM it's going to take 4 years to clean up the mess! My wife and daughters were there in August but they said you couldn't tell the city was destroyed!

    can we just get a story w/ some continuity from the other film. The idea of Walhberg being a survivor from chicago sounds fantastic to me.

    I'm ok if it's only for a few scenes. Anything more than that would make it repetitive and too much like DOTM.

    That would be neat. I live in the area, near Wisconsin, so going to see the movie shoot again would be epic! I already went once, during the filming for DOTM, but there was a malfunction with the explosive equipment during that time, so I never got to see the results. Plus, I had to leave with my family anyway. Got there by train, so yeah...hate taking the train...:redface2:

    Maybe the Autobots are still there helping rebuild Chicago.....

    I think Bay & Co. enjoyed filming there b4, he said the city was very agreeable to his schedule, blah, blah.

    So, I don't see it as a bad thing, gotta bring in much needed revenue for the city.
