OK we're here all fans that pretty much KNEW all of the characters before we even got to the movie, but did the general audience remember the characters? I asked my dad about a month after we saw the movie what characters do you remember and he said this: "For the good guys I remember Optimus Prime, the yellow camaro, those twins and the rusty old guy... As for the bad guys I remember the airplane guy, the big one that sucked up sand, and that guy that was in the space ship the whole movie and did nothing..." After I saked him how about Megatron you surely remember him, he said "I remember Megatron from the first movie but I didn't even notive he was in this one..." And keep in mind he is a HUGE SF fan, bigger than me. When we saw G.I.Joe(he didn't even know what it was until the movie) he remember ALL of the characters, and still does, so Transformers kindof failed in that department with him... So what's you experience with people that have just learned about Transformers throught the movie? Do you think people remember some of the characters by names, or do you think they just remembered Optimus Prime and the rest just by cars?
