Maybe if there wasn't so many freakin types of toys then sales wouldn't be so bad....
You have big Prime, medium Prime, small Prime, all these sizes sold in ranges such as movie Prime, classic Prime, Transformers Animated Prime, Transformers Prime Prime....
And not only that, Transformers recently celebrated it's 25th birthday, think about all the technological advancements made in the last quarter of a century so why o why are Transformers toys so freakin hard to transform!?!

Also why are they so expensive....

As the article suggests, Dinobots are pretty much a dead cert.

I'd like to see more of the COMBINERS introduced, but maybe only one on each side. I'd also have the actual robots characters fleshed out a bit (can anyone tell me the names of the autobots who featured in DOTM without a quick google?).

If they are going for toy sales, then Hot Rod is pretty much a dead cert.

Yeah, make toy sales the deciding factor on the plot of a film. That's the way to make a good movie.

It wouldn't be that hard to introduce the dinobots if they had stuck with the cartoon's premise that the autobots had been on Earth for millions of years before being woken up. Although some transformers were on Earth for a long time in the first movie (megatron iceman for example). Of course, it all goes back to the boring "We were here before" bollocks, or that the transformers have been involved in Earth's history (which was the set up of all three movies, however convuluted and contradictory that might have been- "We don't know what this is" in reference to a frozen Megatron, and yet 40 years before telling us that they had robot Leonard Nimoy on the moon. So actually, I don't really think any work is required to fit the dinobots into the story, because continuity didn't mean anything anyway. As the man himself said above, the film is driven by toy sales. So whatever's a cool toy will be in the film. And to be fair, it is a film about giant alien robots that transform into stuff, so it's not like the filmmakers think they're Kubrick or some shit, so they aren't going to dish out crap on their audience like "we're going on a darker, more realistic journey this time". Just make it so it doesn't hurt my eyes to watch robots fight, stop cutting away from the action, stop pretending that anyone gives a shit about the humans (they're only their for padding- if dropping them means you lose 30 minutes so be it unless you can justify them) and do something that doesn't concern Earth's history because it's all old hat. Have Unicron eat Earth. That's a good start. There's your reboot.

Sod new transformers, this time I would like to see: a script, a vaguely comprehensible plot and Shia Le Boef slowly lowered into a pit of rabid wolves.

Sometimes there's really no need for satire, they just do it to themselves. Coming soon, the Matell and Mars Bar Quick Energy Chocobot Hour.....

Why? Why? Why? These films started well (number one) became crap (number two) and then went into overdrive with such an abysmal piece of dung I don't even want to think about it. And now they are revealed for what they relly are: a giant expensive advert for toys. Tiny mindede kids who wouldn't know a good film if it got up and bit them will love it though, it'll make millions and the world will end.

Now I actually have found the Transformers movies to be pleasantly entertaining in a noisy action fun kinda way and I know a lot of people that like them. The stories and script were never gonna be oscar worthy seeing as it's based on a fucking toy so I don't know what the people that moan about it were expecting!

If what they are saying is true - That Shia and the orginal cast are no longer on board, they could come out with an ok blockbuster. The 'characters' were one of the main problems in the last 2 films. It will still be stupidly heavy on pointless story and CGI, but what do you expect from Michael Bay?!

Whats bugged me with these movies... Well there's a lot actually but one of them is seeing Transformers turn up and disappear without a trace. Sound Wave, and Take Side Swipe for example, made a dramatic entrance in part two by cutting a deceptacon (the Audi) in half, then you hardly see him again through the rest of the movie and removed compleatly from part 3, it's little but I thing it's important. The other important plot point they missed a trick on was keeping Star scream alive, where by we see Megatron turned in to Galvatron by Unicron. Then have Galvatron kill Star Scream during his taking of the deceptacon leadership. But bay and his people are silly.

Anyways since a new cast is coming in then they can start off by calling their Male Ally Daniel, as that was his name in the cartoon/ animated movie.
Hot Rod, he should be the the 1970 Dodge Charger, Or obviously some American Muscle car, DinoBots, Ultra Magnus, Kup, Lazar Beak, Astro Train, Sound Wave still should be alive,

You don't half talk some rubbish sometimes. No, it was never going to be "Oscar worthy" (as if that's a valid excuse for poor film-making) but is it too much to expect a half-way decent film that doesn't look at women as if they're objects to be perved over by some drooling idiot of a director?

It doesn't matter if it's based on "a fucking toy" or a Leo Tolstoy novel. Shit is shit.

My day off yesterday, at a loose end I put on Dark Of The Moon turned my brain to standby and wayched 21/2 hours of mayhem...............Bliss! These movies are what they are...........Entertainment. Who says that you've got to watch Oscar Worthy movis or even movies with morals? That's why it's called entertainment folks!

Why didn't bay stick with the original format in the first place with the arc being in transformers then everything would have fit in even the dinobots would have made sense being the first autobots out while the others were still asleep until present day. Why take the lets change it route just look at marvels films that they change the whole back story and it didn't work eg x men franchise
