This kind of reminds me of a little movie history... Citizen Kane is considered to be one of the best movies of all time. It was Orson Welles's first film (fun fact: Welles's last film was voicing Unicron). And while Welles had a full creative control & a blank check to do any movie he wanted, Citizen Kane wasn't the movie he wanted to do. Welles wanted to do Heart of Darkness (the book Apocalypse Now was based on), but he wanted to shoot it in the first person & the technology of the day made it too expensive (his blank check had a limit). After he failed to get the funding needed for Heart of Darkness & the time on his contract running out, Welles made Citizen Kane almost by default. Would Citizen Kane be the movie it is today if Welles had more time? Would Heart of Darkness be even more groundbreaking than Citizen Kane? Or would Heart of Darkness have been an absolute failure and we're better off with Citizen Kane? I really wonder if Bob, or anyone else knew that Transformers would be as big as it is today 30 years ago. And if they did know, would they have spent more time on it? Had more people working on it? And if there were more people & more time, would it be better or worse?
