So far it's looking like a consistent 60% majority prefer the smaller individualized teams. That's what I voted for myself. I just loved how in TF1, every fan big and small knew the name of each character, because each character got a chance to really shine and make a name for themselves. It's why to this day you will still hear clamoring for Leader Class Blackout and Bonecrusher. They made such an impact on you. Spielberg is genius and that's why we got to know those characters in TF1 better than the sequels (his idea in case anyone forgot/wasn't aware). Is it necessary for there to be just those smaller teams in a Transformers movie? I don't think so--think of the Star Wars Trilogy (yeah you know which trilogy I'm talking about) and the Lord of the Rings Trilogy---plenty of unnamed, mass armies, fighting and dying by the bucketloads, and yet that didn't hold people back from loving them dearly. I guess there's something about a pre-existing franchise where we DO already know so many characters, that we do appreciate seeing that fleshed-out personalization with the characters onscreen. I think that's why the majority of us here so far really connected with that limited character approach over the mass drones and larger rosters.
