I thinik they can still change it again, but I fear they will keep this lense and not expand on it (like Resolute did but was shelved for fear of them clashing) and keep a finite view on changes in the future.
Trailer #10 perked my interst enough to change my die hard hatred and 100% advesrness to even going to the theatre to at least see it once over the next several weeks. Why? The one scene where Duke headbutts Destro. That looked way cool. once I accepted that I lowered my expectations sooo low that I have lost all hope that this will be what I thought it would and should have been.
It's just a popcorn flick and just a movie for shits and giggles at this point. Oh well greatness may once come from all of it one day (after all they had 2 differnt hulks which both sucked to high heavemn, but I do not like Hulk like I like Joes), but they sure have done a number on it and I doubt it will ever be great again so much poetntial wasted and that is why I hate it so much...so much left un-explored and left to genericness.
The toys are on par with the 25th but are starting to get to that bland factor of just rushed reapints and kitbashes to create supposed new characters. I do not like that trend. If they want the universe to expand then get crackiing on it with new stories, Transformers cross overs, new figures, new character bios, not just reusing names and moving a head to a different body. Need new molds and new Vehicles like the Resolute Hiss tank, vehicles kept me intersted for a long time as they kept cranking out new ones every year in the 80's. They are going to have to grow some real balls and make new molds and spend some Research and development to keep continued interest, not re-hashing everything we already got from 25th/ME....or VvV or Sigma 6...

i will admit to having enjoyed the movie for what it was, a summer action flick in the same vein as transformers. it was fun to watch and my kids enjoyed it. if i were to focus on the story and plot points, you could kick the movie all day long but i'd rather not and just enjoy it for what it's worth. in complete honesty, i enjoyed transformers more than gi joe and transformers has it's own laundry list of flaws. this one was atleast family friendly though and kudos for that.
still hate all things accelerator suits...
