I am one of the biggest G1 fans around, but I feel that people don't understand that the Bay movies are not, and never will be G1. People need to stop hoping that the movies will somehow deviate from the current course, and somehow become more G1. The movies take place in their own alternate Transformers universe, and there for, don't have to conform to any pre-established story lines. So, if they want to create new characters, or change a characters gender or ethnicity, I'm fine with it. Paramount will never make a G1 movie, so lets stop hoping that they ever will, and just enjoy the sensless crap they put out now.
