Keep Your Flames Away From My Optimus Prime
Michael Bay, Dreamworks Pictures, and Paramount Pictures
More Info at:
We, the undersigned, whole-heartedly REFUSE to accept an Optimus Prime....... with flames. Simply put, flames stopped being cool somewhere around the 8th grade. Mr. Bay, what happened? We knew you directed Pearl Harbor but we instantly forgave you of that the moment you cast Peter Cullen (the original voice actor) as Optimus Prime. You seemingly, for once, had EVERYONE on your side. But then you must have started flipping through some of your old Jr. High notebooks full of doodles and noticed how cool everything looked... on fire. We are outraged, nay, HEARTBROKEN to picture our beloved Autobots champion calling out "Autobots, Transform!" with his one flaming arm raised in the air. It isn't too late, Mr. Bay. Turn back now and give us the movie we have all been wetting the bed over since we were 7 years old. We don't care, do reshoots, push back the release of the film a few months... just give us back the not-so-flaming Optimus Prime that we all know and love!!
