Image Credit: Eric Charbonneau/Wireimage.comImagining a Transformers without Megan Fox is almost as strange as imagining a Transformers without, well, transformers. But we’ll have to cope nonetheless: Sources confirm with EW that Megan Fox’s option has not been renewed for Transformers 3.

The source claims the decision had nothing to do with any sort of personal vendetta Bay might have had against Fox (for the actress comparing him to, you know, Hitler and all), but rather the direction of the story. (Shia LaBeouf’s Sam Witwicky will have a new love interest in the third film.) Still, since Mikaela — and her bodacious bod — has been so central to the franchise, it’s hard to believe Fox won’t be gracing the big screen in the blockbuster-to-be.

Will Transformers be the same without Fox, PopWatchers? And who should replace her as the film’s resident eye candy?
