    Agreed fully. I would love another AoE-like film with a smaller human cast and a core robot cast that gets their time to shine, a villain like Lockdown (not exactly him, but you know what I mean), and a balance between the robots and humans. It also felt more alien, it honored what came before it, and its story felt like a microcosm of a much larger universe rather than making Cybertron and Earth the only planets in the universe that mattered once more.

    I'll still buy TLK because I own all of the others on home media, and I don't plan on stopping, well, ever. It still had parts I enjoyed despite not being as enjoyable for me overall.

    It's too bad, too, because it has some wicked robot designs, like Barricade and Megatron.

    Yeah, new Barricade, Megatron, Nitro Zeus, Bulkhound, the re-do of Drift (from the color scheme to the new face) are all fantastic. Knight Optimus is hard to get behind. I love his head and new face but the body is too armor-y and not enough Bot.

    Yeah, it was very alien wasn't it? From Lockdown not having an allegiance to any of the factions (which implies that there's bots out there NOT involved in the war) to Lockdown's ship and it's inhabitants. That is a great to put it. AoE feels alien as it should, TLK went back to feeling familar again.

    Yeah, too bad Barricade wasn't used more, but at least he survived. Personally, I wish Megatron stayed as Galvatron, but I also like his new design so much that I would make it so Megatron was once a Knight like Prime. Given Lockdown captured Prime and presumably the other Knights alive, and it's likely Lockdown considered Megatron dead, I think it would be neat if this new "Megatron" was a Nemesis Megatron sent by the Creators since they thought the first Megatron was dead. Then you can have a battle between Galvatron and "Megatron." That way the Knights could all be puppets of the Creators to destroy the factions from within and not on some ship under the Atlantic, and Galvatron could be the Last Knight not controlled by his makers.

    I'm kind of going on a story-idea rant, but I think it could have been neat.

    And I can understand fans of the earlier films or other versions of Transformers not wanting a Transformer film featuring Optimus Prime losing faith in humanity, bounty hunters, human-made Transformers, and a host of aliens on Lockdown's ship, but I saw those things as a nice break from what had come before it.
