    What's also a bit puzzling now is when Optimus says in TF3;
    "In the years since our arrival, earth, our new home... "So now we assist our allies in solving human conflicts.."
    If they've been here forever, now that scene doesn't make sense.:redface2:

    Not to call you stupid, but have you ever thought that maybe he is refering to the Knights of Cybertron? Because they are the secret past Sir Edmound Burton is talking about, their mission is to protect Earth.

    Sir Edmond Burton isn't talking about the Autbobots being here forever. He's talking about TFs in general. Not a spacific faction or spacific Transformers but Transformers as a species have been on Earth forever.

    Ebay:
    "The Bumblebee Movie story is set in 1980s." Interesting.
    "The Bumblebee Movie will have less robots and the main focus is [obviously] Bumblebee." Yay(!)
    "The tone of The Bumblebee Movie is pitched for the younger audience it seems." ¬_¬
    "An Animated prequel is in the works. The story takes place in Cybertron regarding the origin myth of the Transformers millions of years ago. Ant-Man writers are working on the project." SWEEEEET!!!
    "Transformers movie set is ancient Rome is also in the works." Okay, that seems interesting, I'm not sure how it will work but i'm intrigued.

    No I almost wish they would have saved the roman time line for this movie and used time travel. Megatron in the gladiatorial pits would have been so great and such a great way to reference his time as a gladiator on Cybertron

    What the hell would they turn into in Ancient Rome? Animals?

    He is referring to his group of Autobots as a whole. Not every single transformer in existance is aware of what has been going on.Its not that hard.

    Idk why people are saying that this film contradicts the first 3. It falls into place quite easily, and the things that arent that clear are going to be answered.

    haven't gone through the thread yet, but a "French Connection" style Transformers movie for adults might be the best damn movie pitch I've ever heard. Boo to you, Hasbro.

    Because that is the fascination of what the franchise can offer.

    It's not like Spider Man was meant to be in Civil War since they announced it.

    So what I learned is a couple things.

    The plot of the next movie is set in Ancient Rome, which means we are getting the exact same plot six fucking movies in a row.

    They are actually hiring new writers which is a great thing.

    And the Bee movie taking place in the 80's means another figure of the 74' Camaro Bee. Yus.

    ...Ancient Rome...

    *massive sigh*
    *massive eyeroll*
    :rolleyes2 :redface2: 

    I foresee a 1000% facepalm-worthy chariot/half-beast-former and a guy that straight up turns into a column.:crazy: 

    That or some totally pointless Saint Seiya/Transformers mashup or sth.
    Not that it wouldn't look cool mind you, but with all the vehicle-based stuff left to do, really??? :redface2:

    ...I hadn't thought of it that way. Hell yeah, I'm already looking forward to the movie.

    Though I kinda wish he'd been a '60s Camaro in the '07 movie, (and therefore this one) since I like it better than the '77 one. But hey, I still like its looks more than any modern Camaro.

    Okay, now I love these movies and I'll defend their pros, but I will absolutely not deny that all of the movies have followed the same formula of 'revealing that a major historic/prehistoric event was caused by TF activity.'

    '07: Hoover dam built to conceal the Allspark and modern technology reverse-engineered from Megatron

    ROTF: Pyramids of Giza and Ruins of Petra built to conceal Solar Harvester and the Tomb of the Primes

    DOTM: Space Race instigated due to the derelict Ark's presence on the Moon and Chernobyl Nuclear Disaster potentially caused by Russians attempting to use a fuel "rod"* from the Ark (It's not clear if the Cons planted it there and immediately pretended to try and steal it or if it was always there)

    AoE: Cretaceous-Paleogene Extinction Event caused by Quintessons mining the dinosaurs for Cybertronian metals

    TLK: Arthurian Legend originating from Cybertronians on Earth collaborating with and providing "magical relics" to the Knights of the Round Table, Nazi Germany taking over part of England and TFs stopping them, and a bunch of other shit if the microfiche video is to be believed

    ...And now we're gonna get a movie where TFs are involved with Roman (and possibly Greek) Mythology. It's really just predictable at this point. I wish we could just get a movie where there's no involvement with any ancient anything and the TFs are just facing the consequences of the previous movies - or even better - plots focusing purely on the Cybertronian element. We almost got this with AoE since the whole Creators causing the K-Pg extinction wasn't important for very long, but it's still the cause of all the events of the movie.

    This usually isn't something that bothers me, but it's still a serious problem when you're using the same formula for six movies.

    That's probably why the articles says that they are discussing it. Not that an ancient Rome movie is going to happen.

    Yeah, if you boil it down to one sentence and equate events and objects to be the same thing. You can do that with every series.

    If they did a roman film, it would be just like this film. Modern day but flashbacks to events that happened in that time period.
