Those movies just aren't going away. And after DOTM, with it's mega success, they aren't going to change either.
Like it or not, thanks to these films, we are going to be seeing a lot more of show stealing, young warrior mute Bumblebee and other takes on the giant piles of parts from the bayverse for the long haul.
Thanks to the huge profits from the movies Hasbro is bound to introduce elements of the movies into all forms of Tranformers media in the years ahead.
Hopefully, as this continues, they will at least look at the light at the end of the tunnel, the one version of Tfs to actually be awesome and still include the yellow vocally challenged allstar.
I am referring to Transformers Prime. In fact, this series is everything I wish the movies would have been. I actually LIKE BB in this show. And Megatron isn't a giant fondue pot, either.
So, what does everyone else think? Will the legacy of M Bay and his uber cash cow movies eventually strip Tfs of all that makes it attractive to the fan base or will the future find a more comfortable balance, as in Tf Prime?
Finally, what are the chances the movie plague will infect the comics again as it did with the bold new direction of ongoing 2 years ago?
EDIT: Mr Bay is coming back for a fourth movie...So I have decided to change the title of this thread appropriately, reflecting the future tense, echoing a warning from the future.
JUST what we needed now that the comics have gotten up off their !@#es and a new cartoon show is boldly telling actual stories!
Now we are certain to return to earth and the amazing humans in comic books and watch Bumblebee and his 24 cousins clog toy shelves for another 3 years! (Which reminds me, we'd better cancel the Prime series early so we are sure to have room on the shelves for those Bees!!!!)
