Neon Tiger's stage music from Mega Man X3 was also pretty much straight from Guns 'N Roses' "My Michelle". X5 also renamed all the Mavericks as references to GNR.

The idea of someone else jumping on the franchise was a pretty refreshing feeling while it lasted.

Oh well. I look forward to enjoying the ride for what it is.

That's really as optimistic as I can get about it. Hopefully they give us something new or...anything to make it seem fresh.

Man, just take a gander at the butthurt on TFW. I know it's not nice, but just take a look for yourself.

I'm glad TF4 is coming, it'll give us another chance at getting more of the movie characters in the toyline.
I'm sure Prime and the 40 Generations figures will have their time when the TF4 toyline comes, so there is no worrying
to be had.

What, about this, or about every other piece of Transformers-related news?

I don't get the whole reboot thing, myself. Seems to me the benefit of having the same director and putting out a new installment so soon would be retaining the universe audiences are familiar with.

I'm assuming "reboot" means no Sam and quite probably different alt-modes for the Transformers.

I'd hope for a Bumblebee who can actually hugging speak but that's probably a pipe dream with Prime taking the stupid idea and running with it.

The former is likely, the latter is doubtful.

Is that in any way a reboot, though?

Maybe I've just been misusing the term from years of comic book fandom, but in those circles, "reboot" (soft or otherwise) suggests at least a partial ditching or re-jiggering of continuity.
