Bay has already bastardized the Transformer franchise, and now he wants to change the
TMNT turtles from mutants to aliens.

Why do these assholes insist on taking iconic franchises, and changing key elements of the back story or characters?

I was all set with the original Transformers movie as soon as I heard they were going to change Bumblebee to a Mustang, and Megatron to a tank.

Bay is basically a vampiric entity, soul sucking our childhood nostalgia.

The dumb thing about it is they think they have to make these changes to "help" the story, when the story was strong enough in the first place to make TMNT and Transformers worth making a movie about in the first place.

I read that one of the TMNT creators was on board with what Bay was doing, so that makes this even worse, if true.
