Let's do this. I understand that many of you do not like the new designs. I understand that we as a fandom enjoy jumping to conclusions so much that we start to believe any and everything we jump to. I also know that people in this fandom (in all fandoms for that matter.) can be know-it-alls that always think their right..., therefore, I know that a lot of people already think they saw the movie and know what it's going to bring to the table. The thing I understand the most though, is that that kind of defeatist attitude only helps to further perpetuate an already ridiculous situation. Everyone is afraid. We're afraid that the movie is going to blow. We're afraid that Michael Bay ("the devil that is raping your fucking childhood" ...if i see that statement one more time I'm going to puke, get real.) is going to destroy something that we've cared about and loved for the last 20 odd years. I understand that everyone is afraid, and I understand that fear leads to assumptions and panic, but PLEASE, do not let the fear that this movie will suck convince you it is a definitive truth, an already known commodity, it's NOT. This movie needs to be seen before you can judge it! Do not forget that one very important fact! The drama and theatrics aren't helping anyone, all we can do is hope that we're wrong, rather than being convinced we're right. That's all I gotta say, sorry if I step on a nerve or two. ~Mike.
