I sent this msg over to Vangelus via pm, but didn't get a response. This makes me think that the topics mentioned here are actually a waste of a post. I actually don't know if these facts have been mentioned at all, though I'm sure people have picked up on it... I don't personally follow spoilers much. -I met a producer from transformers (won't mention his name) twice, on the set of films that I worked on last winter, and though I refused to hear any inside spoilers on TF2... he did mention to me that Jetfire is the blackbird. That in itself is not the new fact, but the fact is that they chose the blackbird to pay homage to the X-Men films they did as well. -Steven Spielburg also only got interested in doing the first TF film because his son, Max, took Don's pitch and wholeheartedly convinced his dad to get involved. The whole aspect of him always being interested is a front. If it wasn't for Max, this movie wouldn't be what it is now. Take that for what you will folks.
