"Transformers" Trailer Around Turkey Time

Summary

According to one of the admins over at the official "Transformers" message board, we can expect to see an actual trailer for the sweatily-anticipated action-fest some time between "Thanksgiving" and "Christmas." Which sucks because I had "Valentine's Day" on my Transformers Trailer office pool. Back to Article

Nice. I want to see that completely awesome new Optimus design in motion.

And I also want to see if Megatron looks less awful when he's wrecking stuff.

micheal bay will f**k this up.lets be honest, the transformers is a difficult thing to make a good story of but the thing can still be fun and cool. just as long as it sticks to the original 80's series and not the selfproclaimed cool update by bay.

it is still early to say anything about the film since there is nothing to see but given bay's track record and style he can't do the serie any justice, he'll just make a robots movie instead of a transformer one.

Writing a decent story for The Transformers is no more difficult than any other story. These people are supposed to be professionals. And what with all the money they're being paid, they should have the juice to rise to the challenge. And you know, it wouldn't be a bad thing if Bay did read this. Because maybe it would inspire him straighten up and fly right.

Yeah, I heard that these Transformers don't even use weapons, they just poke peoples eyes out with those sharp objects protruding from all over their bodies.

[b]man I wish I was hired to do so much of the design[/b]
I know this won't can't happen.

but they should have made a teaser poster, showing a a close up on a robot hand (starscream) reaching for a Walther p-38 silenced pistol (megatron). And the of course the Title would be Transformers 7-4-07.

instead we see bots on mars and megatron is an alien plane with large protudeing very phalic body parts sticking out of him everywhere. They can't be serious!

Bay dropped the ball with the teaser trailer this summer. It had no actually sighting of a robot (minus the shadow) and made his name way too big (when the studio should have been pushing Spielberg's name instead). I love Bay, but he hasn't had the greatest track record lately. They don't even need to say his name. Just say, from Producer Steven Spielberg, and the director of The Rock and Armageddon...instant box office. Anyway, Spiderman 3 really outdid them with their teaser. That got the whole theater talking. Let's hope the Thanksgiving trailer shows us a few money shots.

I don't know about anyone else, but having ' Transformers' mentioned on the same line as 'Turkey' doesn't look promising to me.

lol. I agree. This film doesn't hold much promise. It seems almost an excercise in hate that they'd give the Transformers franchise to an open hater of the original series. Doesn't make much sense at all. Maybe he'll surprise us. One can hope. But some of those ridiculous designs have got to go.

I really think Bay just doesnt understand the concept. My favorite idea was the fact that they are robots in disguise, so if you lived in the transformer world, the car in font of you could possibly be a robot, the plane that just flew over head can maybe transform and attack you. I wish Bay would stick to this idea.

If they did, a trailer with a big red semi pulling into a truck stop and Sparkplug comes out with his yellow hard hat on and gets something to eat and the then drives away but we see the Autobot sign on the cab or the rear end, would really excite the fans because obviously the fans would know what we just saw. I know I'd be screaming and yelling at the screen becuase I just saw a live action trailer with Optimus Prime!

That actually sounds like a really cool idea for a trailer.

You're right, that does sound like a cool trailer. you know why? because it comes from the mind of a fan. And that's what's missing from this production, an actual fan of The Transformers. And that is why the franchise is in trouble. These clowns in hollywood apparently have learned nothing from Nolan and Raimi.

The Power Rangers would have been more Michael Bay's speed. Crap, I hope he doesn't read this.
