    As someone who can credit Michael Bay for getting me back into Transformers after decades of radio silence avoiding the toys and the franchise, I'm happy he's happy. And if he's still involved in the franchise I am happier still. I know directing has been handed off to others, but as long as he's still onboard in some capacity I know this movie is in good hands.

    This was what I think the the audio in the video said:

    Unknown Character 1: “Tell me more?”

    Noah: “Who are you? Why are you hunting for a key?”

    Unknown Character 2: Inaudible dialogue

    Unknown Character 1: Unsure of 1st part, ends with "then attack!"

    Direction cues (I think these lines are actually pretty clear)

    “Both size each other up!

    "Cheetor brings his fangs closer to Mirage's jugular"

    "Wheeljack & Arcee take aim at Rhinox as he paws the ground"

    According to Travis Knight, he did a very good job - he was very supportive to Knight during the whole process, even sitting him down for a chat at the start of it and giving him some advice, and even sticking up for him when the studio got nervous about what Knight wanted to do.

    It's rather telling that Knight has spoken rather well of Bay and Spielberg... but didn't say anything, positive or negative, about anybody else (especially Lorenzo). So, either Lorenzo's involvement has actually been deeply downplayed (and Bay and Spielberg are really running the team now) or Knight had a bad run-in with Lorenzo and, quite understandably, wouldn't want to talk about it.

    Guys (not you, Nova), you're making a whole fuss about nothing. We don't know the exact story of why Bay is visiting the set - maybe Caple asked him to help out. Maybe he's coming in a supervisory capacity, just to check everything's okay (especially after IIRC, somebody tried to steal the prop vehicles). Or maybe he's just interested in seeing how things are going and wants to see the sights in Peru.

    It's not like he's totally uninvolved in the film - he's a producer here, just as he was with Bumblebee and producers often visit the set of films they're involved in. It's their way of keeping up-to-date with things. And, let's be honest here, how often do you get to visit Macchu Picchu and call it a business trip?

    I agree Bay being the producer (Which we've known for months already!) is not a big deal, it's likely he will have very little involvement in the production. Maybe he will offer a bit of advice here and there, but that's about it. He had the same producer credit on Bumblebee, this is no different.

    About why Travis Knight didn't say anything publicly about Lorenzo, is probably more down to the fact that Lorenzo's is not a big known name like Michael Bay & Steven Spielberg, he's not being asked what it's like working with Lorenzo by press etc. so he might not feel the need to say much about him.

    I'm sure there are plenty of people Travis Knight had a good time working with on Bumblebee that he has not publicly mentioned. He talks about Bay & Spielberg because people want to hear about them. I don't think you can assume he had a bad relationship with Lorenzo on the basis he hasn't talked about him publicly. Just my thoughts on it.

    So this movie looks like it's turning into "Ancient Aliens: The Movie". But I guess they've all been like that. Not surprised.

    And here we go. Transformers are responsible for all human civilization. Tf8 Babylon, tf9 ancient China,tf10 eskimos. Wait a minute, Who am I kidding? After this next train wreck there won’t be a tf8.

    If they use Rock Lords along side the Beast Transformers in the movie then I want Rock Lords to appear in the Beast Wars comic series.

    Man this thread when from neutral to got chaotic quick
    How did you get all this from just Bay being on set (he's also just a producer)? I think you're overreacting a little bit, who knows if this movie will be a train wreck.

    I get why they want to go big with this movie, but man after Bee there was so much potential for these smaller stories centered on a few bots.
