So basically the trailer cut down to a few seconds, which is like jamming a Big Mac into a thimble.

Since when is Wahlberg a star?

you have to admit it looks far more interesting than the last ones. It helps they switched out the lead for, you know, an actual grown man. And for once, an expressive human being seems to be the main villain.

@Sleuth: you be right, dog, you be right, and I'm fairly interested in this one since I've been a big robot nerd since Tranzor-Z.
This one looks alright, and I like how Bay has finally found the balls to do bigger robots. Perhaps Unicron isn't far behind. I also like how Galvie looks frightening whereas Megs looked like a f*cking sun-melted T-1000 toy.
Like I said: they should have hired Ehren to begin with. Series probably would have looked more like G1.

Wait I though Ehren had been writing for the series since Revenge of the Fallen? Oh wait he was working with f*cking Orci and Kurtzman. I really liked them at first with the first Star Trek in 2009 but then after that sh*t Orci said and their continuance in over action and eccentric storytelling it sucks. I have to admit, Dark of the Moon (Which they should have just called Dark Side of the Moon since that is what everyone was mistakenly calling it, had several redeeming qualities. Actual truth, Revenge of the Fallen had a great first hour but the finale sucked in 2. 3 had an interesting note in the finale of Optimus excepting his planet's done for and by ending his fight with Megatron, who has been his opposite and source of purpose, it showed a willingness to move on to something bigger. The question is can they deliver?

@Sleuth: yeah DOTM is the first Kruger Transformers film, and weirdly enough the first one I actually enjoyed, although not by much. I just like how with this "reboot", Kruger can now do with the series what should have been done from the beginning, and I'm definitely digging the floating Scorponok imagery. I'm also wondering if the new trilogy will be better and closer to G1 than the first. I'm hoping it is.

Well, I say that that's Scorponok, but then he was in the first film, wasn't he? Well, f*ck. Dunno who the big scarb-thing is, but Scorponok in the cartoon was a huge floating crab-like base, so....

Well that does add confidence doesn't it. I think Lockdown was what really got me. Don't know why but the fact there was a Transformer coming in by parachute that made me feel...huh, maybe the advanced robots are finally a little more tactical. LOL We'll see. It does overall look like an improvement in every way. They always had the visual effects. Add a decent story and you could have some real science fiction fun. The first one was great fun in my opinion, it helped that they had a restricted budget which forced Bay to think more creatively...I know a new one for him. LOL But it helped make the first one one of his best films.

Scorponok was a scorpion and a base. He was also a headmaster whose main enemy was Fortress Maximus.
