Hasbro/TakaraMaybe were too hard on Michael Bay. In terms of narrative and character development, his Transformers films are diabolical. But in terms of purely visual entertainment, the live-action Transformers films are a wonder to behold. Weve been offered tantalizing glimpses as to how large a character Bays willing to include in these films, but with varied results. The Jetfire/Optimus Prime combination from Revenge of the Fallen was rather spectacular (for all its brief onscreen time), while Devastator looked as if someone had squashed him into a puny pulp. Now that were four films in, perhaps its time for the Transformers to expand on their war. Wouldnt it be lovely if the Autobots/Decepticons left Earth for once and buggered off to other worlds, adding to the possibility of new, more varied characters becoming involved in the epic struggle between good and evil? But that would mean missing out on the next Megan Fox bending over a car bonnet or the next Mark Wahlberg all greased up in a tight white shirt, so thats one dream down the drain. Given that a fifth Transformers film is already in the talking stage, the Transformers universe populates a huge array of characters that havent been used yet, some of whom are genuinely huge. So lets take a look at ten of the biggest Autobots/Decepticons that Bay would be wise to include in any future Transformers film.
