    I think there should be a rule with franchise films. Once the original Director/Producer is done with their version of the franchise, then whoever does it next must start from scratch and not be allowed to do a continuation of the previous. I could see Statham being an older Sam via original animated movie. But picking up where they left off. No. We saw what happend to the Batman franchise once Burton was done. Freak show. Then Batman Begins gave it new life. Because it was a new direction. But too much of a good thing is bad. Three movies is pushing it and dangerous. Spiderman anyone. But wait, didn't a different director pick that up and continue? But sometimes it works. I think Dark of the Moon was a good ending to the Franchise. They killed all of the main characters, but they did that in the animated movie too. I guess they could be clearing the way for a new later story line???? Leonard Nemoy being a voice in the movie and also audio dropped several times in the movie is promising of Galvatron maybe. Who knows?

    I'm with you. Jason Statham is fucking BOSS. Bring on Headmasters, TargetMasters etc.... I'd love some movie styled headmasters. Human Alliance Headmasters!?! That'd be crazy. I'd love to see some Transtechtors.

    Jason Statham as the star could turn this to a straight action series without the stupid romance shit.

    FUCK YES. I hope this is true.

    this is what they've been doing since tf1. only just martial artists or some random people rather than real action stars. watch tf1 the making.

    Yeah, motion capture's been around so long, I just assumed that's what they were doing for the movies... It's how CG characters are given realistic humanoid movements. Shoot, TF: Prime probably has some Motion Capture.

    Statham would probably be the movie-verse version of IDW's Spike character


    NO THANKS

    That doesn't matter. Last time (ROTF) This very web site had a contest for designing a bot for the next film the day the movie came out. Wheeljack won. He was in the film, his design was not.

    Anyhow,.... What?! Really? ..... Probably a rumor, but we will see what happens.
    Whether the film is a reboot or not, Hasbro/ Takara won't let this money train slow down if they can help it. These movies sell and sell toys. either way, I love the movieverse, and if they can do it right i will be there on opening day again. }:>:cool:

    This. I enjoyed Bay's work but there's so much more they can do with different directions and so forth. Let's see something fresh.

    Haha, this is a rumour. Which is a shame as I love the Stath, not sure he'd be right for the franchise though.

    Well, if Jason Statham is feeling Shia's shoes, I think this is a good confirmation we're in for a reboot. :)

    This one sounds just a bit too convenient.

    Second hand info indicates Hasbro's G.I.Joe staff would be happy enough to do it, but
    the Transformers camp feel it would dilute the brand.
