    Dear Lord...
    What a bunch of … as a Bayverse fan, I am starting to feel embarrassed by the salt mines I've been seeing since this weekend.
    I almost want to wear a hat and sunglasses around here.

    I swear- the tables have completely turned since 2007. Man! On one hand, there is a certain satisfaction to it; on the other it's just sad and full of cringe.

    Here's a teachable moment: a little introspection during painful times like this when fictional robots based on toys don't look the way you want: whatever you told someone unhappy with bots not being G1 enough... time to apply that to yourself.

    The last 5 movies aren't gone; nor is the aesthetic eliminated from this one either.
    If you don't like this one, go back and re-watch the others.

    And for the love of all that is Holy- you no longer have any room to call "geewunners" entitled crybabies.

    Look on the bright side, we can now finally say that the Transformers franchise is as globally recognized as Batman or Spidey when the normal person can argue over their favorite version of Optimus or Bumblebee. The destruction of Cybertron will be a story that gets retold on the big screen every decade just as each generation has their own version of the murders of Martha and Thomas Wayne or Uncle Ben.

    I think this sums up how it's gone full circle:

    I can't believe the r-word is being used again (well, maybe I can).

    Unreal Tournament designer, Cliffy B. hates Michael Bay

    History lesson folk:

    The whole "rape my childhood" thing did NOT come from the general fandom, but from unreal tournament designer cliffy-b.
    The phrase went viral, and was used to label just about anyone who liked G1 and / or didn't like Bay's bot designs.

    And now, based on a screen grab 2 posts above this one, it would appear that the chickens have come home to roost.

    No kidding. 10 years ago anyone who didn't like the movies was "stuck in the past and afraid of change." Now we've got something that isn't mindless, ugly, and crude and feet are being stamped over it by probably the same people who threw that old line of horseshit around.

    In the first trailer you see Bumblebee fight with a flaming helicopter so he's maybe just damaged a lot

    Micheal Bay further divided the fan base. Now Hasbro Paramount is course correcting.

    I don't really empathize with Bayfans because they've had zero empathy for those who didn't like the drastic changes Bay was inflicting on established characters.

    Now that the changes are swinging the other direction they immediately get hypocritical.

    I'm happy to see that you tube is full of people happy to see the change.

    I was very critical on previous post and other threads of how the transformers looked in Cybertron, but mostly for the inconsistencies that those G1 designs would bring to the Bayverse, not because they look necessarily "bad" but because they look out of place. They look cool for a game or a cartoon, in fact, I would watch happily a show based on those designs.

    As a G1 and Bayverse fan I tell you not to forget that there are also some "geewunners" who came out of their holes who are "spitting shit" around here...

    He is the Bayverse fan equivalent of a geewunner...

    I am going to watch the movie with an open mind, I really hope that it will be good. It's only the Cybertron flashback scenes that I don't completely understand.

    The fanbase was already divided among itself the moment BW came to be. Bay's movies weren't the first to divide the base.

    Oh my God, what a mess this fandom has become. This is what happens when you care more about caring about something than the actual thing you care about. It's like people are looking for hills to die on.

    Fixed that for ya.

    The very moment there was any sort of notable "change" to Transformers was the moment things went to hell and stayed there.

    Guys don't be rediculous. Yes there was a BW vs G1-G2 devision, but didn't last because BW was well written and BW itself drew directly from G1. BW also didn't last forever.

    The Bayverse is a whole different matter.
    Remember this was Transformers chance to be seen in live action. It was based loosely from G1 and current aligned continuity, but mostly unrecognizable, It was badly written, and it lasted 10 years.

    Some people only know the Bayverse. That's a real division.

    'Logic dictates that the needs of the many outweigh that of the few.'

    That is such a confusing and strange opinion.
