    To be fair, he's got a point. Unicron needs to make sense for their universe. And since there's been no mention of Primus, justifying Unicron would be difficult. That and yeah, animating a planet-sized Transformer in CG could be a super pain in the ass.

    My bad. Also, while AOE was an improvement, I agree.

    Guys I agree with you that we need a new writer, but give this guy a break huh? Atleast he's trying, and it seems like he's done some research for the transformers mythos. If bay doesn't want to completely fire him he should just let him pen the story but not the full script. I wonder if joss whedon would be willing to assist with the script in between avengers 2 and 3?

    Yeah, I'm not getting all of the Ehren Kruger hate. He's not the world's best writer, by any stretch of the imagination, but he's a far sight better than Bob and Alex (who, let's not forget, gave us Revenge of the Fallen).

    As to the article, Kruger says that he keeps pushing for the Unicron story thread but, essentially, Bay isn't ready to do it (presumably because he hasn't figured out how to make it visually awesome yet). If there's anyone to blame for the lack of Unicron up to this point, it's probably Bay and the procuders - at least as much as Kruger is to blame.

    To wit: it's something of a moot point anyway, as Unicron is something you save for the LAST film. That's probably the real reason we haven't seen him, because they'd blow their biggest trump card before they're ready to end the series if he appeared in anything but the last film.

    EDIT: 1,000th post! :)

    I don't blame orci and kurtzman for revenge of the fallen, I blame hasbro and the writers strike, (and a little disappointed in bay)

    Also, let's not forget ROTF happened when Kruger came on board.

    Kurtzman and Orci gave us a a perfectly fine first movie, and they're capable of writing good movies when a third wheel doesn't come around. Otherwise ROTF and ASM2 happens.

    I think the writer's strike contributed more to the problems with that movie than Krueger did.

    He's not really any worse than Orci and Kurtzman. Which doesn't say much, granted...

    You really don't want Unicron in a live action movie anyway, it'd be next to impossible to do him justice in the form that people are familiar with. People will expect the planet-eating planet, and while it's an awesome concept it simply wouldn't work in live action. And if they do to him what Fox did to Galactus there'd be uproar anyway.

    what the hell did Hasbro have to do with the writer's strike? It occurred across the entire entertainment industry and was mandated by the union the writers belonged to.

    And for all of you disparaging him, Kruger is 100 % correct. You save Unicron for when it's RIGHT to do so. Overusing Unicron or using him incorrectly has led to some of the absolute worst TF stories ever written.
