    It is interesting that there was an assumption at the time of recording that the movie would still be successful in China. It seems to be most successful there but still not doing great. Would there be a little update on box office speculation next podcast?

    Also, would the podcast team care to weigh in during the next podcast on the fandom's reactions to the SDCC box set and the casting decisions for the bumblebee movie when they are covered in news updates? It has been... disheartening to watch some of the reactions.

    No, that was all Nitro. Onslaught had the line about needing a bigger door.

    On one hand, I think this may be the worst of all the movies. The pacing and editing alone places this at the bottom..... but on the other hand, I don't actually want to rewatch Revenge Of The Fallen to confirm which deserves the bottom spot. In all honesty, I don't think any of these movies are good and I enjoy them in the same way some people enjoy the Sharknado films.

    2 episodes have been recorded since (yay editing pile-ups), we do talk about the SDCC box set but not a whole lot about reactions. I let out some steam about dumbass reactions on twitter :lol 

    probably not gonna update on box office numbers unless someone else wants to bring it up b/c I kiiiiinda don't care enough to talk at length >.>

    So is this an accurate timeline or was something left out?

    Every time Hasbro returns to Bay, I get this powerful vibe that they don't know how it works, so they're replicating the good and the bad out of fear it won't work.

    Bay, done with this since the first one, is now actively trying to ruin the franchise so they stop calling, BECAUSE he's not principled enough to say no to all that money.

    I legitimately forgot Optimus Prime had an alt. mode until it just showed up at the end.

    This was fun. I haven't watched a Transformers movie since Dark of the Moon, but I still get a lot of schadenfreude... I mean "enjoyment"* out of listening to others respond to the films.

    *I mean schadenfreude.

    Ah, excellent: four hours of "Vangelus and Crew should write the movies."

    It's a slog. I Kinda personally prefered (well loved) the "We Hate Movies" podcast take on the film. #itsjustabadmovie #itsokaytolikeathing

    Maybe it's something to do with robots that turn into or have names related to insects? Waspinator pulled himself back together (though not magnetised like that!)

    I'm listening to them now on the first movie and think they are just trying to be obnoxious
