    Hmmm, lets see the largest Autobot. Prime about 15 tons, the SR-71 about 34 tons. Combined 49 tons.
    One Terrex RH400 excavator rolling around in a bad mood tearing through highway overpasses, 1,080tons.
    One cranky critter walking out of the ocean if based on a Soviet Delta sub, 13,500tons.
    The Autobots in a fight are going be like fleas on a pitbull.

    Squishy little humans with infantry based weapons can take down Decepticons so do the Autobots really need to be very big to rip them a new one?

    The bigger they are, the harder they fall.

    Huh? Do you mean Ravage?
    If so, why on earth would you think his alt mode would be a Submarine?

    Bull. They need some heavy hitters, I agree.

    I think Jetfire is going to be pretty big but if he's old it makes no difference. I hope for guys like Grimlock, Ultra Magnus, Inferno or Silverbolt.

    1st. You need a way to make them falling (for Devy you need an H bomb at least)
    2nd. Frenzy would be the strongest of 'em all (ugh...!)

    Do IRL vehicle weight actualy matter? I mean they're just robots DISGUISED as the vehicle, as far as we know Optimus Prime is actualy heavier than most Decepticons except for the Godly Constructicon and Jetfire could end up being reeeeeeeal big.

    I think the Autobots are gonna need some HEAVY attack troops. If they've totally ruled out the Dinobots (their original heavy assault crew) then that leaves Omega Supreme or Superion.

    Either one of those dudes would suit me just fine.

    i personally think they would save either of those 2 for the 3rd movie and just stick to devastator and fallen in this movie . . . .seems like too much if they threw the other guys in there.

    Alright, Prime is made of some super dense, super strong living metal alloy and weighs 150tons. That would also make the Excavator who would be made out of similar stuff weigh 10800tons.
    That's still a flea bite to a pitbull.

    Lots of movies got small heroes completely destroying gigantic monsters.

    Could happen again, specially considering that a shot to the main wheel could make that guy fall already.

    "Old"? Don't know if that would matter, considering the implied age of the TF race, the first movie Cybertronians were thousands and thousands of years "old".

    I would like to see Dinobots, Omega Supreme, and Ultra magnus. Just not in this movie, the next perhaps. Too many "premium" bots in one movie would decrease on screen face time, IMO.

    Sure. Because you should consider also humans screen time.
    That's crap.
    I could show every G1 TF in a single shot.
    Doesn't matter if they won't say any Oscar worthy line.
    I's not suppose to be an Academy Award candidate.

    Watch Mortal Komat the movie 1 and then watch Mortal Komat the movie 2 if you want to see happens when you put too many characters into a movie.

    It's sort of like with the new GI Joe movie. All the Joes I enjoy and all the Cobra that I think kick ass aren't going to be in the movie. The film makers know you can only fit so much into the length of a film so even though a world may have some of the coolest characters ever you just can't fit them all in.

    Or really wasn't it bad enough the first time with people having to complain how Jazz didn't get enough time, or how too many Decepticons didn't get lines to show their personality. If you squeezed in every Autobot people wanted then the pooh would hit the fan because the robot someone loves more than the others didn't get lines or personality.

    Yeah but early rumors were that Jetfire was an old timer and tired of fighting. Who knows.
