Re: Michael Bay out of the way!
There are quality sci-fi stories wating to be explored in the Transformers as the extensive comic book series proves.
You need to get over the "omg teh toy-linez".
Star Wars could've been created to sell toys. Does that negate the Star Wars mythology and characters? Pirates of the Caribbean is based on a theme park ride. Does that mean fans can't discuss the characters???
