    Sounds like they'll be working really hard on the sequel. It also sounds like this one should be much better visually, though that's not to say that the first one wasn't :D .

    I anticipate more 'bots less humans. Considering how much the first film has made, the budget on the sequel should be high enough to allow them to do anything they want. Bring on the Dinobots!

    For anyone that's seen the first movie, this statement right here is a giant pile of confusion.

    However, it would make me extremely happy if we get the Decepticon story hinted at at the end of the PSP version of the video game. Shockwave and Starscream battling it out over who's going to be the new Decepticon leader would rock my socks. Give a half-hour or so to that, and I don't care if the entire rest of the movie is Sam and Mikela making out on Bumblebee's hood while the rest of the Autobots stand in the background and talk about creepy human stalking.

    Yeah, those guys at ILM and Digital Domain really have my respect for working as hard as they can on those CG robots. It will be a circus for them: good luck Mr. Farrar and co!

    Yeah! Bring on the Dinobots! If they get more budget for the sequel, there's no way they can't bring a Dinobot into the movie. They can even bring in the the whole bunch, all FIVE of 'em! It can't be that hard. After all, dinosaurs are Spielberg's specialty. :)

    Prime and Bumblebee were extremely well developed. I think they're talking about that.

    That sounds very good, from the "develop the deciptichops" point of view.

    Yea I kinda had to laugh at that one.
    But hey I'm going to look on the bright side here. Maybe this time we'll get a Transformers movie.

    Granted Optimus and BB were developed, but seriously; two characters out of a cast of ten? That's not very rich. Megatron was nothing more then a special guest star.

    Sounds like they have the right idea for the sequel. Let's just hope they keep on that train of thought over the next 2 years.

    Good news all around, but I'm still doubting they'll make that release date.

    Well they couldnt do worse than the first movie... Well it was a great action movie but..

    Megatron is the deadliest being there is!!!!
    Well according to the first movie we should take Sam's and OP's word for it since he's playing icepopsicle the whole movie, and doesnt really do more than shout the last ten minutes.

    Starscream, you failed me again!!
    What he do before than....... And in those 2/5 hours whered he become treacherous?

    The depth of the ocean will crush theyr bodies!!!
    Uhm, didnt they just crash land, fly through space...... like i think they can handle that part.

    ow and on the matter of being a popsicle, If he freezes on earth how the hell did he fly through space?
    on that same note, how does high degree bombs 'n bullets damage something that comes through the atmosfere burning and crashing on our god green earth?

    And about character richness, yeah Jazz was a real tearjerker in the first movie ;P

    I was amazed at how much the audience got to know Megs in his brief appearances. Secondly, the audience also got to know Frenzy, Ironhide and Ratchet well. Definitely, I hope they keep developing the four core Autobots as well as Starscream and more screentime for new characters like Soundwave and Grimlock.
