PiercingMetal Thoughts: As I’ve too much going on in my media social calendar I don’t think that I will hitting this movie in the theaters all that quickly. I also don’t remember seeing the previous installment and since this will be Michael Bay’s final film in the series, I would like to have a sense of continuity. That comes from all the comic book reading I do. To me the action seems along the lines of what we’ve now had go on in four films so I hope its a good one. The toys certainly look awesome and the comic books that are on the stands are really well done. So what do you think? Will you be lining up today to see this one or waiting a little longer like I am doing? Let me know in the comments section below but please hold back any sort of review notes. Oh and in case you missed it, Hasbro revealed a massive amount of new action figures based on the film which I shared in a post that you can find by clicking HERE.
