TBH, most of the real people I know who've seen the films are as interested in Sam, Mikaela, Lennox, Epps and Simmons as they are in the Transformers themselves. For a huge proportion of the audience it's the first TF fiction they've seen in 10 years, or 20 years, or even ever. To these people the TFs are the aliens in Independance Day or the dinosaurs in Jurassic Park - they're the reason the story happens rather than the story itself. We're the mental ones for getting attached to Jolt or Bonecrusher.

FWIW, I'll miss Mikaela. Fox wasn't really my type, but for a girl in an action movie she wasn't bad - the general idea of her being much more capable at just about anything but accidentally buying an Autobot was great fun, and Fox was good enough at putting a bit of life into her lines. I'll miss her more than I'd miss, say, Arcee.
