Well, there is sorta an overarching plot involving Megatronus, which is vaguely hinted at by Optimus popping up now and then going "EVIL!"

And yeah, the tone of RiD REALLY makes it not seem like a sequel to Prime. I mean, hell, the show and toyline are explicitly being marketed towards really young (and stupid) children. Prime's target audience was more pre-teen and their Tranfan parents.

So! Transformers 5 is a thing. So is Transformers 6, because Mark "Marky Mark" Wahlberger signed on for at least TWO more TF films. Lord help us.

So far, the Bay has remained uncommitted to directing (according to a tweet he made), so that's potentially good news. Bad news: Human stain Don Murphy is involved "pitching process". Anything Murphy is involved in is immediately tainted.

Oh, and the film is being written by the guy who wrote A Beautiful Mind (but also wrote Batman Forever and Batman and Robin) and the showrunner of Fringe.

And finally, there's this terrifying news:

TEN FUCKING YEARS

It looks like my prediction of Kiss Players is coming true.

By TF:8 will have a combination of Transformers-human romance (maybe not sex, but definitely romance) and humans fusing with Transformers for powerups. You heard it here first, folks.


I'm actually kind of serious on this point. Let's face it: this isn't exactly uncharted territory for movies starring intelligent non-humans. King Kong, Twilight, Planet of the Apes, Ninja Turtles, Robot Monster... what's more curious is that Transformers managed to avoid it for so long. The size-difference/cultural differences/they have no biological sex excuses won't last forever, you know.

In short, your entire post is dismissive of not merely my intelligence, but my agency. And I don't mean agency as a player within one of your games, I mean my agency as a person. You do not want me to be informed when I make the fundamental decisions of deciding whether to join your game or buying your rules system.

They should just remake the 1986 movie . . without changing anything but the animation errors <.<

Well, Transformer-human romance has happened before, kinda, outside of Kiss Players. Look at "The Girl who Loved Powerglide". And humans fusing with Transformers has been a thing since 1987, when Headmasters were introduced. The concept was really big in the Japanese TF anime of the era.

Those excuses have been long ignored by the fanfic community. MLP isn't the only franchise with really disturbed fans...

So, Transformers 5, aka The Last Knight.

It's coming out this year (June 23rd), Michael Bay is directing, and has Anthony Hopkins and the worlds loneliest dog in it. (An aside, Micheal Bay may not be a good filmmaker, but he seems to be a decent person.)

Bay has said this will be the last Transformers film he will direct. But unlike the past three times, it's totally for reals this time.

I'm not optimistic. I mean, I'm gonna see it, because fandom is a fickle mistress, but I fully expect to be thoroughly underwhelmed. Really, my only hope is that the toys for the new film are better than they were for the last one.
