    Hello Mr. Orci. Congratulations on your recent successes with TF2 and Star Trek. Now on to the question.

    How does it make you feel when you come to these boards are read statements such as 'The writers are hacks', 'I could write a better script in my sleep' or my favorite little nugget 'ROTF has absolutely zero plot, whatsoever' ? Does is make you think we are all a bunch of ungrateful little bastards? Or do you simply just shrug it off and laugh?

    Hi Robert, I have been working on some stuff for a long time, I know you guys keep things secret so this little project I have worked on for three and half years I have kept under wraps and discussed it with no one. I am not looking for a job, I am not looking to impress or to somehow swindle you out of anything; I am just a guy passionate about stories, generally shorter ones, love to draw and take alot of time understanding the mythology of this unverse without losing focus on what reality demands. I was wondering if you would consider having a look? It would be in the strictist of confidence and is more or less to see if you guys would like it. Pictures, story development, research, laughs and points of interest available upon request. I would really like to share this with someone after so many years.

    Hey, Mr Orci!

    I would like to know how much input you and Alex have over the film as a whole. It seems from your previous responses that since Bay is the director he kind of overrides everything.

    Were there ever times you said, "Hey, no, that won't work don't do that." or is it what Bay says, goes?

    You mentioned earlier that you and Alex hired bay to direct, if that is the case, have you ever rethought that decision?

    If Bay had declined who would you have got instead? (Ewe Boll! haha. j/k, although he's used to low budgets!)

    I know that right now no one is currently working on the next TF movie, but when the time comes, and if you are asked to come back (please do!) are there any particular storylines or characters you are thinking about taking a look at? (I've heard bits about Unicron and Dinobots and the like, but figured I'd ask directly.)

    Things you may want to do if you write the next movie... END THE BARRICADE MYSTERY!
    We all wanna know what happened!! (Im sure you've heard all about that already haha) Bring in more characters from the animated movie!! (cough cough..HOT ROD, KUP!! cough cough)

    Thanks for your time!

    Making a movie like this is so complicated, that it doesn't really bother me. When you are negotiating a story/script with a media conglomerate (VIACOM), Michael Bay, the US car industry, Hasbro, and no less than the Pentagon... it's not like anything most people can really imagine. It is certainly not like sitting in a New York cabin like Steven King and just typing away at your novel.

    But this is our last reply here. Thank you all again for the attention:)  Perhaps we'll find ourselves on another board for some other project.

    Take care of yourselves!

    Yeah, how does Orc's Farewell to TFW2005 and mentioning another Project imply he and Alex won't be around for TF3?

    Goodbye Mr. Orci. I'm looking forward to Fringe Season 3, the next Star Trek and Transformers! Just make sure Bay sticks with your ideas instead of throwing in his. Make sure he doesn't take out a bunch of stuff like ROTF.

    I know you probably won't but tell Alex Kurtzman I said hi!
