    It's best not to try to understand the missing logic of Bayverse haters. Plus, responses to any intelligent discussion will usually be countered with "well Michael Bay just sucks."

    Well, speaking for myself at least, I think where my disappointment comes in the most is when you look at the live action films as compared to other live action superhero movies (especially TF's closest sibling, GI Joe) you find that the staff/directors go out of their ways to at least make sure that the characters come from some version of source material. Sure, their personalities might be a little bit different, or the character line ups might be different from previous iterations of the series, but the names at least names that already existed in those greater multiverses.

    Also, you look at Hasbro's cross-functional marketing scheme and see how a character like Knockout was almost certainly meant to be a pre-movie set up for a Decepticon car, but rather than call the live action version Knockout, which would be easiest for kids coming from the show to the movies to understand, they go with Stinger? Same with Bulkhead. It's not terrible that they want to call him Hound, but that alt mode screams Bulkhead.

    So sorry, I agree that it's nice to add TF characters here and there, and maybe he'll be really awesome on screen, but I just think it's a little careless to just slap on a new name when there's not really a good business reason to do so.
