Michael Bay: Transformers 3 will focus on character. Right

We don't know about you, but we tend to agree with the following review of last year's Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen:

Ed Potton, The Times of London: "It's like being hit over the head repeatedly with a very expensive, very loud train set. After two and a half hours in this bludgeoning company, you're begging [director Michael] Bay to put away the boys' toys and make a rom-com."

Well, no such luck: Bay is working on a third installment in the hit movie franchise, and he told the Los Angeles Times' Heat Vision blog a little about it.

Seems it's going to be more of a character piece. As in robot characters:

... The third film—which will hit theaters in summer 2011, won't be as robot-heavy and there will be fewer explosions, a tight-lipped Bay said after the Q+A. "There will be a nice crescendo ending," Bay said. "It gets much more into the robot character. The last time you kind of met a few of the robots; this time you're gonna get a much cooler landscape."

An English Patient with Autobots? Or more shucking-and-jiving twin robots? More of that pink chick robot Arcee and her inner turmoil?

What do you think of this? Or do you even care about Transformers anymore?
