    Alright... here we go.

    Spoiler warning about what follows here!



    Look away!




    If you don't want spoilers, leave now!














    - Arcee and Soundwave confirmed (we know that)
    - IDW has a copy of the script and is using it to keep RoS and Destiny in-continuity
    - Sector Seven evolves into something else by movie 2 (perhaps that task force Lennox and Eps are in?)
    - Movie 2 opens with a battle somewhere on Earth (possibly that Bethlehem shooting, I wonder...)
    - "The Fallen" is referred to as the main villain of the movie - which suggests even MORE that he is NOT Megatron.

    Well, in RoS... I suppose to some extent.

    Going off that book, at least FOR NOW he's more interested in restoring Cybertron. Though going off Mowry's hints, let's see how long that lasts... after all, absolute power corrupts absolutely :D

    Definately there are some interesting things, specialy about Starscream's personality which seems to fit what we saw in the leaked treatment.

    Definetly interesting. The Fallen should definetly make for an interesting on screen design, character in the movie, and toy. I won't be surprised if he gets a Leader class toy at some point. I wouldn't mind Starscream also getting one, but, I'm happy enough with my Voyager.

    Edit: Jetfire, if in the movie (still a rumor last I checked), would also make for a good Leader class figure. Depending on his design, I'll either get a Leader version of the Fallen, or the inevitable Voyager version of him.

    Edit2: To be perfectly honest, I like that they're going in a different direction with Starscream than the typical backstabber we've known in pretty much every other incarnation of the character. It's nice to have some difference in the character for once.

    If he's the main baddy... oh, you bet he'll get a Leader-class toy.

    In which case, I'm gonna go out on a limb and guess the Leader-class figures we'll see are Prime, The Fallen, and either Starscream or Jetfire.

    No, no new Prime mold, lets just see a Leader Fallen & Starscream and a Voyager Jetfire.

    This whole section made me smile.

    I don't see the connection. Armada Starscream was a troubled yes-man who sought to find his own path. Movie Starscream here is described as a much more abitious would-be saviour. I think.

    Man, if they DO do The Fallen, I hope Hasbro makes him fire-retardant. And then coats said fire-retardant layer in a flammable one, so we can light him on fire without melting the toy. :)

    It'll be very interesting to see what form the Fallen takes in the new movie. I hope they keep the fire element in there. That would make a really cool visual if done right.

    Hmm, this seems like they're trying to steer Starscream's usual backstabber archetype into more of a tragic villain. Could be interesting, to say the least.

    Although the article states Starscream isn't as backstabbish as he was in G1, I think they're still giving the impression that he'll happily betray Megatron (which he has done) so he can gain more power and fufil his goals, which isn't really too far off the typical Starscream. He might not be as stupid as to claim victory everytime Megatron falls over, which is good to see.

    Some very interesting stuff. With the script giving them ideas on how to tie in the with movie I hope this means that the movie is filled with robot character. Maybe the days of robots there just to get killed are over.

    Just too bad they couldn't come up with an excuse of Starscream is a leader now so he's got to change his robot mode to something more visually attractive.

    Fingers crossed that a good spoiler comic book will lead into a good movie.
