    Looks like a good start! I'm excited to seen some screen shots and footage.

    Also note that they describe Megatron's alt mode as a stealth bomber as opposed to his Cybertronian form we've become used to. Possible sign of things to come?

    I'm most interested in the GTA sandbox mode that they've confirmed. I can't wait to smash through buildings and stuff.

    Well isn't Megatron supposed to take an earth mode because he finds out about the human's nuclear warheads and likes the idea of using them against the autobot forces?
    That's what I've heard happens.
    A stealth bomber would certainly have the ability to carry nuclear missiles.

    If it's true I really hope we get a toy out of it.

    Maybe it's a in-game only thing. Like how in the game the Decepticons have their own storyline and ending.

    That sounds like an awesome game, I just hope it's done right and actually becomes one. As for the Megs blip, that just seems like *more* mis-information on the part of the reviewer (ala Shia's infamous 'Razor' comment) and not actual fact. Meg's alien jet mode is sleek and black and easily referenced as a 'stealth' jet, but I highly doubt he will actually be a stealh bomber in the film. Those things are ENOURMOUS, and as we've seen with SS'd design, the movie makers are working on height limit for these bots and a Stealth Bomber would just blow that limit right out of the water.

    I'd say it's not out of the realm of possibility that the game have stuff not seen in the movie, such as Megs having an Earth mode. From what we know of the character of this Megatron, he seems so disgusted by Earth and its people that he refuses an Earth mode. Besides, if Ultimate Bumblebee has a voice chip (and as of the Feb. script BB has only one garbled up line in the movie), then maybe this game will have a Megs Earth mode.

    Hmmm. I would be most pleased, if Megatron gets his butt kicked in this movie, only to be reformatted into a "lesser" alt-mode that is the stealth bomber in a sequel.:) 

    Then, who knows, it's probably only a game-based thing, but I'm very eager to see pics.

    This is so true if megatron is a bomber he will be massive. the thing that i dont get is how big blackout will be. I read the the helicopter is normally 88 ft long so that means he could have a incredibly large robot mode. That means that the autobots are going to have to jump blackout or something to kill him.:useless

    actually, the F-117 stealth bomber is only a foot longer than the F-22, 63 ft vs 62 ft, and yeah the MH-53 (Blackout) is longer than both.

    I watched a video today about the cooperation of the military with Michael Bay on this film AND ... they mentioned stealth bombers being used at some of the shoots. Now, none of the TF in the film are stealths SO ... either Megs becomes a stealth at some point in the film or the military uses stealths against the TFs.

    This was already covered in the previous TF video game thread.

    The link to get to the article is different, but it's the exact same article. You might want to check out the other thread from that post on to see if you're just repeating the same thing in your own comments here.

    Yeah, that sucker is a biggy. But wouldn't a random Stealth Bomber going awol be a serious target? Like, Blackout can blend in because he's a chopper, but a stealth? They rearely use those things.

    *Ahem*

    "Despite these problems the B-2 was declared to be in full operational capability in December of 2003[5]. The B-2 maintained high serviceability for Operation Iraqi Freedom, dropping 583 JDAMs during the war."

    There are currently 21 B-2's in existence.

    p.s. In no way am I trying to sound like a smart a$$ so please do not take it that way. I'm merely just trying to back up stuff with evidence. That's all.
