    Big surprise is not surprising at all. Pretty sure any fan with any sense knows that if it's a seeker in a mainstream movie, it's going to be Starscream.

    Who would've guessed that Starscream was actually Starscream?

    Interesting turn of events. So, that makes the leaks from the early screening obsolete? Good news anyway. I wonder if the leaks were deliberate misinformation or they changed the character after getting reactions. Apparently people react positively to G1 inspired visuals and iconic characters. Who would have guessed?!?

    Okay, I'll settle for that name.

    I hope that the film gives him a voice (even if Charlie Adler isn't reprising the role, I hope someone as good as him does it), and that his appearance makes note of Megatron stuck at Hoover Dam.

    So the white-and-red seeker is actually Starscream? That is unexpected, i thought it was Ramjet for a second!

    I mean, I feel all TF fans should\'ve known who this was already, just looking at the color schemes alone simply tells you lol if they were to name it anyone else, I\'m pretty sure everyne would\'ve gotten upset by that choice.

    Yeah as much as I've liked most of the movie designs, so many had alt modes etc. that were more associated with other characters. At least it seems now they're trying to pay some kind of homage to the classic designs. If this had turned out to be Ramjet it would've been a bit of a letdown.

    "You thought it was me, Starscream, but it was actually me, STARSCREAM!"

    On the one hand, I'm satisfied that Screamer now gets a chance to enjoy the big bad role with Megajerk on ice. On the other hand, I mournfully lament Ramjet's chance to be a big shot on the big screen...

    Now I’m a bit more excited.. but really, they couldn’t have gone with an F-15? Or is this taking place prior to 1969?

    Oh, God damn it...we couldn't feature any other Decepticon jet for a change? We have to fuck up continuity even more?

    To be fair a lot of us had plenty of reason to believe it wasn’t Starscream it seems an early screening was spreading mis info in that regard.

    Oh wait, I've just realised the true plan at hand!

    We finally see Starscream on the big-screen. He's been revealed at last, tall and intimidating, far above his Decepticon minions. Cast in shadow, his imposing presence cows even the other killer robots. He turns to face us, and as we all lean in anticipation for the big moment, he speaks;

    "Hee hee, Wazzzpinator got payback on jet-bot for possessing him! Now Wazzzpinator will be big star of movie! Mm, chick-bots dig movie starzzz!"

    Then you havent figured out by now that the mainstream movies almost always stick to the usual suspects because of the reputation of being most recognizable by the widest audience possible, especially in a movie where there are only 2 transformers (in the trailer) so far.

    I was hoping another character would get a chance to shine, but if it's official it is what it is.
