    I love Transformers and have since day one 1984...I was 8 years old and enjoyed it, although i've not liked every series, I liked the movies, but to make #4....please no, everyone is dead that mattered really, and to just add guys....no.

    But if so, I would hope it would be another new storyline or something like that, and please someone else write the story this time, not the same one or ones, there was too much that either was empty and full of holes or just plain Blah. Just because someone is a good script writer, don't mean they can write well for every story, or plotline. Let the Jagged metal warriors die, and have more solid bots this time, I mean they lost so many pieces in the movies how could they even fix themselves, at least the block bots of the 80's looked solid and beefy, like they could take an ass kicking and still get back up. And enough Decepticon tanks, just because they were guns or whatever in the 80's don't mean they can't be some kind of large weapon besides a tank...gun platform, Megatron could still be a cannon.

    The butt-hurt in this thread is palpable.:lol 

    Seriously, any of you thought that DotM would be the last movie or there would be a reboot after this?

    Like it or not, until one of them flops hard, the Movieverse will be alive and well for years to come.

    As someone who actually enjoyed the movie trilogy as a whole, I feel it has run it's course. I'd always welcome a good TF movie, but fourth movies shoehorned at the end of a trilogy rarely are.


    For those who worry about the Prime series, don't. Here's why it won't get cancelled like Animated:
    • Animated was a back up plan. It was made with the contingency that the Movie line would flop so that they would have something to fall back on. Of course, the movies were far more successful than Animated.
    • Prime, on the other hand, is meant to be Hasbro's main continuity for Transformers in the foreseeable future. When TF4 comes and goes, they'll switch gears back to Prime instead of doing another reboot.
    • Animated's cancellation also involves circumstances between Hasbro and CN. The Hub is more or less on the same page, so chances of a similar fiacso is slim.
    • The movie, if it happens, won't be here any time soon. Hasbro will have a lot more time and legroom on what to do with Prime and it's toyline when the time comes.

    Good, keep making them please and I'll keep watching them and buying some of the toys.
    I do hope someone else gets to direct any further ones though. Bay's had his three.

    I loved the movie trilogy so I'm happy to know that theres a number 4 in the pipeline.
    However in my opinion a sensible idea would be for Steven Spielberg to direct and Bay to produce, that way the new "trilogy"(?) will have a new, distinct and refreshing feel while retaining the movieverse continuity.

    For TF4, it needs to be a pre-quel, basically take it back from the very beginning. all the cons are dead now, what are they suppose to use? Either Galvatron or make it prequel with no humans!

    The only reason I am not looking forward to a fourth movie isn't because of the actual film, it is because of comments like this that we will see again for the next several years.

    Get your facts straight. The movie toys help fund Classics. The movies also had nothing to do with the end of Animated, it was because of Hasbro creating their own television network, you might of heard of it, it's called the Hub.

    Not surprising news at all. Unfortunately, people keep going to see these movies, which makes everybody involved a ton of money. That's louder than any complaining I can do.

    Lies all lies. The movie franchise hasn't made a cent. It's all part of a massive anti-G1 conspiracy.

    I hope Bay stays on to produce, possibly second director?

    He has an amazing eye for color and detail, but he couldnt tell a story to save his life.

    Give someone else a chance to direct,

    Hasbro can't use that name any more, and "Rodimus" isn't even a word, means nothing to anyone who doesn't have some pre-existing knowledge of the franchise.
