    Should they stay the same alt mode?

    They've already established that they don't have to, though I hope at least some of them do.

    Well, considering that the movie is at least a little about selling the toys, id think there might be upgrades and suck, but the modes would remain roughly similar. I.E., blackout going from the pave low to something with waaay more guns, like a Soviet era Hind, maybe Megatron turning into, wait for it, a tank, maybe prime getting a trailer of some sort or an overall change to the alt mode, different sort of truck, maybe one that hides two guns instead of one, that sort of thing.

    Personally I'd hope they stayed the same to add to continuity.

    The alt modes will change, but only slightly. Or at least that's my guess.

    Well, I can see them changing some. I mean, they are suppose to be 'in disguise', *Spoiler*but half of an urban city district gets clobbered in the final fight*Spoiler*. So, they should probably change alt modes just a tad. Though, I can see some guys staying the same as they'll probably add in some missing gimmicks from the movie... like for Prime... unless that mysterious deluxe ever get released this go around.

    I was wondering the same thing. I think that the characters will change a little bit but not too much from this movie to the second, just enough for people to have to go out and buy a second movie Prime but not so much Prime would be unrecognizable from 1 to 2. Same goes for other movie 1 characters that will be in movie 2.

    It would be cool to change some alt modes but def. keep the bot modes.

    I hope the alt modes stay the same. that way the toys will stay the same, although maybe they'll get some remolds and better paint apps.

    it also clears up ILM and Hasbro's budget for making entirely NEW characters to appear in the sequel, rather than having to pour money in new CGI models for all the returning cast, and new sculpts for them as toys.

    Exactly, money will be better spent on incorporating new characters, with only slight modifications to the existing ones. Hasbor will still make money flogging of the newly introduced characters.

    Probably few main Transformers (Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Starscream) will have new design.

    Instead of changing the existing design, I would go for:

    a) Changing the characters, or

    b) Adding more characters.

    Maybe Prime can finally get a decent paint job.

    Exactly how I feel. Rotate the Autobot cast around. Have maybe Ironhide or ratchet indisposed during the 2nd movie by having them somewhere else on Earth from the rest, but give them cameos, maybe in their vehicle modes to save budget.

    That said, I hope Transformers 2 has a very huge Autobot cast, even if most of the appearances are in vehicle mode and are just mere cameos. By the time of the sequel, I think alot of Autobots would be hiding on Earth already and we can have them spread up all around globe but the movie focuses only on a select bunch since everyone else is everywhere else. The others can be given a passing mention, or short speaking cameos when Optimus radios in on a possible global Autobot network.
