    This is a very hypothetical question, but are the chances high that we will see a drastic changes of the robot design if another director steps in?

    No. It's likely that it'll be just like TF1->ROTF. No changes to anyone.

    Gareth Edwards, who directed Godzilla (2014) should take the helm if Michael steps down. I would really, really like Steven Spielberg to direct it himself or James Cameron to step in, but we know neither of these desired outcomes will occur.

    I seriously doubt we'll see huge model changes in the next two movies, no matter who is directing it.

    There could possibly be some tweaks but there wouldn't be a huge change in the designs.

    I would say the chances are very slim, I'd love a full reboot but that'll be in like 20 years and that would be the only time you'd get new designs.

    Depends on Hasbro too I guess.

    Bay isn't going to leave because he uses the pay check from Transformers to fund his other projects.

    The only way Bay leaves is one of these films do badly at the US box office or Bay decides it's time to follow the path of other directors and retire to just being a producer.

    I doubt Hasbro is changing how the transformers look generally...ever. Right now, a lot of their looks are really iconic. I don't think Hasbro can picture live action transformers any other way.

    I just hope they make them somehow cheaper for the CGI so we can have movies with the less human action as possible.

    I hope they change up Galvatron's design, make him look more like his original counterpart.

    i feel as though they intentionally left them barren like a prototype and we will see him gear up in TF5

    No changes to characters. But less explosions.

    I hope they don't get rid of the reactor/ hole in his chest. It's interesting, as it can be used as a weapon (i.e. recall how he destroyed Prime's sword by pulling it into the hole), and is a visual sign that he lacks a Spark and subsequently a soul.

    Bay has been insistant that he's setting up T4 so that the next director can choose to continue the current story, if he wanted to. I know Bay has ALOT on his plate with other projects, too. There's a chance he may not return.

    IF he doesn't return and someone new takes the helm, they may change the story but the Transformers will more than likely stay the same. Plus, the new director would have money there from companies, like Chevrolet, to continue to use their products.

    Just as long as they don't give it to Roland Emmerich.

    I refer to him as 'Bay-lite,' but really, the man lives and dies by coincidence, and if you think Bay stereotypes, just look at '2012.'

    And of course, we saw how his sidekick Patric Tatapoulos designed the 98 Zilla...I don't want to think of what PT would do to the Transformer designs.

    I hope to god they don't. I don't want no G1 looking blocks in the movieverse.

    Speilberg should take over. One film from him is all I ask.
