    This is my first post on TFW2005 since April 2015! I left the site around the time the Transformers Cinematic Universe was announced, and I'm returning just as it ends. I don't know how many people are still around from when I was here, but if you remember me, you probably remember me as "that guy who always criticized Bayformers because it wasn't enough like G1". I championed for a reboot on many occasions.

    I guess I should have been careful what I wished for, lol. At this point I'm actually kind of sad that the live-action series is ending. I watched The Last Knight about a month ago and really enjoyed it. I'm not going to say it was a perfect movie (or even a well-made movie), but I enjoyed a lot of elements in it. It seems to be an unpopular opinion, but I feel like the Bayverse was finally starting to find itself and become something interesting. It was becoming ambitious. My opinions on the movieverse (and the brand overall) have changed over the past few years. I used to demand "more G1 accuracy", but now I've actually kind of drifted away from the G1/Generations aspects of the brand. I actually really appreciate how Bay and co aren't afraid to do their own thing. Now I'm kind of worried that we might get a reboot that sticks too closely to G1 without having it's own flair. The statement about Hasbro taking more control kind of worries me.

    I really wanted to see that World War II Operation Skyfire movie they talked about in the behind the scenes video. Off the top of my head I could think of quite a few interesting out-of-the-box spinoffs and sequels they could have done in the existing movieverse. It's kind of a shame none of what they had planned will happen now. I hope we get to hear all the ideas they were planning at some point.

    Of course I'm still excited to see what comes next. I wouldn't mind (and would even enjoy) a movie series that sticks a little closer to G1, as long as it has it's own flair and is not a direct recreation of the same storyline. Judging by a lot of the other recent Transformers media I'm guessing that's the route they'll go. Hopefully whatever they do next is good and inventive.

    You know what, I am glad you finally found a Bay movie you enjoyed. And as someone who loves G1 myself I'm glad you're able to open to your mind to other things.

    Welcome back!

    One thing that bothers me is they ended it in a Cliffhanger. Megatron Escaped and Unicron Rises.

    Except Unicron hasn't done squat. All that's happened with him is that he's announced to be existing.

    Unicron's horn coming out on Earth then the land mass is moving.
    I can't believe Bay did that.

    I rather buy a cinematic Unicron as a devouring transformer-alien planet rather than Earth is Unicron.

    Did one else realize the RotF's story was a copy of an episode of the GoBots?

    I thought TF Prime did the Earth is Unicron story well...and then the nod to G1 Galvatron/Megatron.

    I hope they keep the IDW concept for the film.
    I quite liked IDW Doctor X and the whole backstory they created for the Action Man program.
    I might watch that.

    And I'm looking forward to the Micronauts movie.
    Baron Karza and his wife were awesome in IDW.
    As was the backstory for that franchise in IDW.

    Pity there's no MASK movie.
    That could spawn a cool human alliance style toyline.

    The MASK movie has been put on hold for the time being. Along with the Rom movie.
