    Just thought some of you guys would get a kick outta this, they're talking about doing a live-action TRANSFORMERS movie!

    As a HUGE Transformers fan during the 80s... I have to say DON'T SCREW UP THE TRANSFORMERS FRANCHISE!!! This is a TERRIBLE idea for 2 reasons:

    1. Unless they can successfully make the Transformers seem realistic (despite their obvious fantasy elements) like Spider-man and the X-Men movies did... the Transformers will seem over-the-top. (can we say HULK)

    2. I cried when I was 5 and saw the first Transformers movie in theaters. (when Optimus Prime "died") I don't know if I can handle an experience like that again.

    ok, the last couple seasons of "beast wars" or "beast machines" along with the bastardization of my fave robots on cartoon network already screwed up the franchise...

    i think the movie is a shot at trying to bring back a sense of validity to an already failing endeavour. good luck... i hope it kicks...

    *sigh... beast machines is to transformers as softball is to baseball...

    Beast wars wasn't that bad. We've got both DVD's of the episodes and they're fun to watch. And at the time they were made, the animation is really good.

    And for the live-action movie to be a success, they need to get the two people who brought back the TF's to comic mainstream: Pat Lee and Brad Mick. Lee's art is downright beautiful and almost lifelike and Mick's writing is just like the original cartoon - except grown-up. You can hear the voices of each character as you read the lines.
