    Okay, anyone remember an interview with Simon Furman and Chris Ryall at Comic Book Resources that confirmed that a character named "The Fallen" would appear in "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen"?

    Does anyone also remember an interview with Chris Mowry that confirmed The Fallen, Arcee and Soundwave?


    Well.


    So do I.


    Looks like we were all mass-hallucination, though:

    The CBR Interview does not contain any quote by Furman that claims that there is a character named "The Fallen" in the movie, and the MTV interview only mentions Soundwave.


    ...


    Wow.


    I did a salvage attempt via Google Cache. There were at least TWO revisions to the MTV interview. The first got rid of Arcee, the second of The Fallen. The CBR interview has been "updated" several times as well.


    DARGH, there's not even any trace of IDW claiming to have a copy of the script anymore!


    Dude. DUDE.

    Yes, I remember reading those when they first came out. Maybe, Bay/Paramount/Orci & Kurtzman/Hasbro decided it was time to better coordinate their information PR campaigns with companies such as IDW?

    Or maybe all your detective work has scared the higher ups, Nevermore.:D

    Sounds like damage control. Or more misinformation.

    All I know is FFN linked those interviews at Bay's site after Bay posted his recent rant, and before his site mysteriously disappeared off the interwebs.

    Yeah guys, its my fault. I posted on Bay's forum, linking to the interviews as evidence of Bay contradicting IDW saying they have the script for Revenge.

    Sorry if I got you in trouble, IDW :(

    I'm not surprised. Actually, I expected the damage-control a bit sooner. I guess Bay and Paramount weren't counting on IDW/Hasbro to blurt it out like that. They could've announced Destiny and elaborated on the 13 series without really confirming The Fallen's involvement. As for Soundwave and Arcee, that's not really a secret at this point.

    You unlock this door with the key of imagination. Beyond it is another dimension. A dimension of sound. A dimension of sight. A dimension of mind. You're moving into a land of both shadow and substance. Of things, and ideas. You've just crossed over, into, the Twilight Zone.

    Still about 11 months 'till release and I'm already tired of all the 'runaround' about speculation and rumors.

    Not surprising, neither the coverup or the ass-backwards timing of it.

    Kudos on the security this time around.
    A mere 10 1/2 months before the movie's release and "We ain't found shit!" -Spaceballs

    I love how people are getting so worked up about this shit. Like other's've said we've still got like 300 some days till the movie, quit bitching about nothing being concrete already, just chill until the movie comes.

    Crymoar.

    Anybody else remember how we pretty much knew the entire movie MONTHS before it came out. It comes out, and sure you actually get to see it played out, sure you get to see the robots moving on the big screen but a lot of people already knew exactly what was going to happen. Save some surprises people, its not like there isn't plenty of other TF related stuff to keep you busy anyway. I'm glad Bay is doing this, now I'll hopefully be able go into the theater on opening day and be pleasantly surprised on a lot of stuff that I didn't see coming.

    I read every movie thread from 2005 to 2007 (except ones that had the script), but I didn't manage to get the gist of the movie storyline. I was surprised when I saw the movie.

    Its quite possible I'm just an idiot, though.

    well that right there is evidence enough for me that The Fallen character is going to in it...but they don't want us to know. they want us to toil over all the possibilities for the next year.
