    Well, all the movies since ROTF have been Bay's last.

    Then Hasbro/Paramount drive a dump truck of money up to his house and he relents.

    Just like Hideo Kojima.

    "Oh Metal Gear Solid 2 is definitely my last!"

    10 years later . . .

    "I'm happy to annouce Metal Gear Solid 4!"

    As long as the redesigns have an explanation...

    I do like that he's going to set it up for the next guy. I wish comic books were like that these days... When a new writer takes over a comic book these days, it usually suffers from SEVERE "new-writer-itis".

    On the topic of redesigns, unless they're extreme redesigns necessitated by the story, do they really need an explanation? These are advanced, alien robotic organisms. Slight changes and upgrades are par for the course, in my opinion. The slight updates in Thor's and Loki's costume between Thor and The Avengers wasn't explained. Nor did it need to be. Time goes on and things change. Are you wearing the exact same clothes or hairstyle that you had 4 years ago? I know I'm not. It's not something that needs to be explained, but if some people want an explanation, it's pretty easy to make one up: Shape-shifting alien robots are "growing" and "maturing", Royal Asgardians have access to more than one change of clothes. 'Nuff said.

    EDIT: I mean, obviously the main production-related explanation is to sell more toys and to promote new vehicles. I won't deny that. That is the first and foremost concern.

    No, I like his current knee-caps! D: Darn you, Bay! You're ruining the franchise again! :p

    exactly the robots have all been updated in the current films (as they got new vehicle modes, paint jobs and in the procress they get new parts too) Megatron (due to alt mode change), Optimus and Bumblebee all had redesigns in the third film, and we didnt had an explenation

    :throw 

    As much as I've joked about it in the past, I don't want Bay going near Optimus Primal. The thought of a raging ape with chainsaw hands as Maximal leader is too frightening to contemplate rationally....

    :lol  at the comment about this being his last film.

    It's going to be a very entertaining summer flick. But unless they massively change the focus from humans to actual robots, it's going to be a make over of the previous 3 films.
