    I was watching TF1 yesterday, and I noticed that the scene in the new ROTF trailer of the naval fleet getting hit by meteors/protoforms or wahtever, is the exact fleet filmed for the first film when the Secretary Keller is de-briefing the analists about the president launching battle fleets or whatever he sais exactly.

    anyways, same ships. I just thought it was interesting, recycling those shots for the 3rd time now, because if im not mistaken, those ships were filmed way back for the Pearl Harbour movie 9 years ago

    They aren't the same shots from Pearl Harbor. The jets on the carriers are FAR too modern to coincide with a movie that takes place in the early 40's.

    I'd have to imagine an aircraft carrier being even more difficult to rent for the weekend than a colossal excavator. You're damn right he's reusing footage.

    Not to mention that there is a HUGE difference between WW2 Carriers and Modern Supercarriers.

    I'm not too proud to admit when I'm wrong. It happens.

    Maybe it's an injoke that Bay's playing himself. Pearl Harbor aircraft carriers in every Transformers movie.

    I remember a thread a little while back mentioned a sub being a cybertronian in the film, Shockwave I think being the popular theory, with these protoforms hitting the ocean, we're pretty sure one is Ravage, as in the trailer we see him emerging from the water, but perhaps one of these scans a sub whilst in the water...?

    Don't admit defeat yet, because it was reported that they also filmed scenes for Revenge on a carrier involving several of the stars.

    Oh yea, I know. I was referring to the fact that I was wrong on the shots being different.

    Given the look of the 'meteors' coming in - we have to assume that these are Transformer Proto forms - as mentioned earlier.

    But - WHO?

    Granted, one of them could be Ravage - him popping out of the ocean, and he seems to be eating something as he does (anyone else notice this?) - but the trailer shows at least THREE meteors crashing down - so who are they?

    Soundwave? - No - I think given what we believe is his protoform as a satelite, he grace his presence differently - I believe he will DOWNLOAD himself into another vehicle - leaving his protoform behind as a back up.

    Could the other - or all - the meteors be the Constructicons?

    Or could they be Autobots?

    Guess away people... :bay

    They're definitely Decepticons, all the Autobots landed themselves safely, the 'Cons made a calculated strike at humanity when they arrived. I think Ravage is definitely one of those, maybe even Alice.

    this wouldnt be possible as earth machines would not be made of the material needed to transform/change shape

    I think it's an attack, not necessarily decepticons.

    The cell phone and vending machine hit with allspark energy say differently.

    I don't think JediAJ2008's idea will happen in the movie, but it is a neat idea, and isn't too far outside what has already been established as "possible" but the movie rules, provided Soundwave had some sort of All Spark connection or similar powers.

    True - but they arent current aircraft either. There are clearly 8 F14 Tomcats on the back of that carrier. The Tomcat was retired from service back in 2006.
