    so when whoever said there would be 40 robots did he mean 40 characters or 40 differant models? for example Would the twins as an ice cream truck and as cars count as 4?

    probably 40 different characters.
    honestly, i think there'll only be a max of 25 of them because thats a lot of cgi work

    no, devastator is 7 and always has been, unless you ask someone who is wrong. it has always been 7 since the very first image of devastator clearly listed the 7 vehicles that made him up, at the top left you can see that there is a vehicle that makes up the back, and sure enough on his back you can see a piece of yellow:

    I do think some will be cannon fodder but i would like to see a full 60 bots in the movie even if some are only on screen briefly. Devastator is 7 bots and anyone who says different is wrong like kjee said. I cant wait to see which bots Bay has included to round out the 60.

    Uh, we already know more than 30 robots.



    And isn't it still unclear if Devastator is made of seven or six bots in the film?

    Alice the Pretender makes thirty. I don't claim to know all forty bots, but there's no way it could be as low as 25.

    There's also the Insecticons (at least one exists, as seen in the trailer), the Kitchen-bots, the combined mode for Optimus and Jetfire... And even Springer, Overload, and Scavenger, though they're not quite confirmed.

    springer, overload and scavenger could also jsut be toys.
    dreadwing, longarm etc were featured in the first movie line, but were never in the movie.

    btw wtf are kitchen bots?

    That's very true. I was saying they were a possibility, though. And we don't know if Overload is getting a toy, he may just be a 'bot dropped from the movie who never shows up anywhere official except for that odd April 1st list.

    The kitchenbots haven't been in any comic. A description of Frenzy-like drones at the Witwicky house came from a report of footage from Toy Fair UK, then after that we saw a swarm of Allspark-created kitchen appliances in the coloring book, and this thread on TFW adds a bit more details. Maybe it's not exactly "confirmed" since independently those sources are weak, but all of them combined makes it feel very, very likely, to me.

    There will be scenes on Cybertron for sure. Not all of these will be on earth. If they hope to explain the Fallen or what happened to Screamer in TF1, I expect some Cybertron goodness.

    Robots not named on List

    Well, from what I have heard:

    - Megatron, Brawl, and Blackout come back from the dead
    - Barricade does appear in the movie
    - Springer is potentially in the movie

    That's what I have heard so far people. :bowdown:

    It's been posted over and over again that Scott Ferrar (head of ILM crew for ROTF) said there are around 60 robot CHARACTERS. I doubt they would make more then 20 robots CHARACTERS cannon fodder, maybe 10 or 15 but no more than 20 if he actually said CHARACTERS in the sentence. Otherwise he would have said 40 characters and 20 small role characters or some BS like that.
