    My predictions for the movie. This is a hot topic and it has made me think of whom and what would be involved. It has likely been discussed before, but every new tidbit of info sparks discussion so here are my thoughts.

    Autobots
    Likely based on a smaller team of bots from Cybertron, too many would cause confusion and take away from the story. The X men movie is a good example of a smaller team that you can get to know all members. It would be detrimental to the movie if there were 20 autobots to cram into a 2 hour movie, save it for the sequels. This team would include:
    Optimus Prime, Semi truck (Is everyone prepared to accept an Optimus that doesn’t look like the Gen 1 cab? I am no trucker, but I don’t think they make those types of truck cabs anymore, the cab may need to look like Scourge or Laser OP).
    Jazz, newer style Porché. Primes right hand Bot.
    Prowl, Sporty police car.
    Hound, Military jeep
    Ironhide, Truck
    Wheeljack, Sports car. (I think it would be cool if one of them would be an old school muscle car like the general lee or the car from Starsky and Hutch)
    Bumble Bee- Would like an original Beetle, but fine with smaller car like a mini (but not a smart car!!!)
    That is it. No more...yet. I know that there are a lot of great characters, but like I said for the reasons above, it is only a 2 hour movie and some of the others wouldn’t be as prevalent as the others.
    As for the Decepticons:
    Megatron, still unsure of Alt mode. I don’t want a gun as the size difference between Robot mode and alt mode bothers me. I suppose a Tank would be acceptable.
    Soundwave, again, unsure of an Alt mode due to size difference, plus it could not be a Tape deck as it is way too dated. Perhaps a military communications vehicle, be it plane or tank. But Laser Beak, Ravage, and rumble are musts to support Soundwave.
    Starscream and the seeker jets- I would prefer different alt modes for each as changing the color of each would look ridiculous. Nothing against Thundercracker, but a Teal military jet!?!
    I think it would cool to have devastator in there somewhere, maybe a final battle, but depends where the story goes.

    Please add any suggestions to the alt modes, pics or what ever.

    Good call, Helicopter would suit him just fine, they would just have to work in Rumble and the rest of the gang.

    I Kind of thought that the decepticons would use more military and the autobots more human type vehicals as the autobots would want to blend in more so then the decepticons would.

    How about taking a guess at what the story is gonna be about? Will we have another Unicron or another type of character like that?

    I think it will be about the US government finding the Matrix, and using it in a project. The Decepticons discover this and come out of hiding to claim it, while the Autobots are going to stop them. During all this a human (probably Spike) gets the Matrix or a fragment of it (necklace or ring?), and then he/she'll be a target for both factions.

    I'm really trying not to have any expectations thus far...I just want to go see it and attempt to be entertained. If I compare it to anything I like I really think I'll just be disappointed.

    Though judging by things I've read and who the fan faves are the cast could go like this:

    Optimus Prime (duh)
    Ironhide
    Jazz
    Prowl
    Ratchet (as a fire truck, like DM alluded to awhile ago)
    Bumblebee
    Possibly Smokescreen

    Megatron (duh)
    Soundwave (as the helicopter once again DM mentioned)
    Starscream
    Thundercracker
    Skywarp
    Rumble
    Ravage and/or Laserbeak

    Since Spielberg's involved. I predict Megatron will not be a gun but a Walkie Talkie.

    :lol  :lol  :lol  :lol  :lol  :lol  :lol  South Park :D 

    Question that needs to be addressed. How do people feel about having human actors. Will they be cheezy and awckward? I think that, like Sky Captain, it might suck....Beyond Belief.

    My predictions about the movie:

    There will be a movie about Transformers. They might beat the crap out of each other at some point in the movie. There will also be a plot. It might involve stuff we've heard about before. Oh, and Hasbro/Takara will make the toys.

    My only prediction is that they will create some "Optimus Prime Robo Fists" that kids can slip over their hands that make clanging metal noises when you punch them. We got Hulk fists, Thing fists for FF4, it's only logical that we get TF fists.

    I'll go ahead right now and predict that Optimus Prime will fight Megatron in the climactic battle of the film. Also, Bumblebee qwill share screen time during this battle, coming into his own against all odds in a heavily outmatched fight against Starscream.

    He will then die, of course, because Starscream would whoop his ass ten ways from sunday.

    I just saw The Island (don't even start with me), and during the freeway chase, I swear I saw a glimpse of what it will be like, at least a chase scene.

    Some dude riding on a TF, and a chopper chasing along with other cars. Throw in some big explosions and transforming, and there you go.

    I predict they will use CGI for the robots rather than use real cars!

    The movie will tank.

    And I'm not talking about Megatron.
