    He actually kinda did When he made those Covers, But I can understand what he said.

    Honestly Liefeld is a Allright guy to meet. I liked him more that he had involvment with the Deadpool Movie.

    But this, is a Good Read.

    Wow! Cool! Awesome!

    If he actually read it I'm guessing he wouldn't be so excited.

    So is this further confirmation that the TF and Hasbro cinematic universes will be completely separate?

    We still don't know. We are yet to see TLK. That's the first time we'll see Akiva's work on the franchise. I'll be reserving my judgement until then. :)

    If he gets the TF Bible, does it mean he may be on board for the TFCU?

    I've heard on multiple occasions Rob Liefeld is actually a pretty nice guy. You just don't want him as a boss.

    I think think the best way to tell Hasbro we don't want Bay, is to not pay for TF movies anymore. I know we may not make a difference but we are trying lol

    What you're saying has been parroted for about a decade now, yet these movies have been consistently successful.

    Call me crazy, but I don't think a minority of fans' ticket money is gonna have any sort of impact on a franchise like this, especially not ten years down the road.

    No. Akiva Goldsman was showing Liefeld what he'd been doing with Transformers in order to sell him (Rob Liefeld) on the idea of creating a Rob Liefeld cinematic universe.

    whatever or not this one flops, we will get films not helmed by Bay, for example the Bumblebee movie which starts filming this year will be made by a new yet to be announced director and they are doing an aniamted cybertron movie which i doubt Bay will direct.

    I'm hoping for a movie about Transformers starring Transformers with most of the screen time dominated by Transformers...

    I'm hopeful. For a reboot and a complete trashing of everything Michael bay.

    Okay, thanks.

    Having a comic-book writer on board could help out though, with the structure/pacing/logic of the story (the action I think is great though).

    All this means is that Michael Bay will still be heavily involved, and that means less TF movies and toys for me to buy.

    They must also be seriously kidding themselves if they think anyone is interested in watching movies based on Rob Liefeld's work.

    I concur to the second part. Liefeld is notorious(especially in his early 90s heyday) about ripping off several comic book characters. While most comic characters are derivative to an extent, he mainly went with a slight hair color change and name.
