Actually, money is everything to any corporation. Without it, they would most likely cease to exist or cease to create anything in the line that isn't earning them any money. Not so sure I'd feel so strongly about the movies that I'd say I'd riot. They're just movies. If I don't think I'll like it, I won't see it. It's just that simple. Here's the thing. Some fans think the product is crap. Yet to the people who make the decisions, it's all about numbers. And if the numbers tell them it's making them money, then it's telling them it's at least "good enough." Maybe not "good enough" in your eyes, but they're not too overly worried about your opinion on that, or mine. Also, keep in mind that the more money the movie verse makes, there is a likelihood that the other lines of TFs may.....just may improve over time if budget constraints can be loosened up a bit with more influx of money to the right places. Honestly, being this upset over something that really isn't all that important in life is rather nice. Not to troll, but it tells me you really don't have any other real life problems to worry about if you're this passionate over some toys and a movie that really.....doesn't affect life at all. And, it also serves to feed the real trolls who would get a laugh out of reading your posts, because at least one obnoxious troll already said it did in this thread. You know, I never did mind the first 3. I found them entertaining. The last one? Outright garbage. But hey....if it helps to fund other lines too, then...I'm not gonna gripe if the products coming out in the future are worth it. Look at the CW line. A lot of people love it (even though there's also a good number that don't.) But arguably, and this is just my speculation, I don't think it would have been possible without funding coming from somewhere.
