    The new issue of SFX magazine (#183, June 2009) has a "Meet the Robots" break down of the Autobot and Decepticon characters in RotF. In it Arcee is described as transforming into Megan Fox's motorbike and Megatron is described as a "weird plane thing" in alt mode. The rest of the brief bios are attempts to be funny (Jolt is described as "not Jeremy Clarkson's favourite" and Soundwave's new alt form is because "cassettes are SO 20th century"). Worth a read for the jokes and the old and odd information they're announcing.

    THE ORIGINAL ARTICLE

    The pictures in the article consist of:

    * The Doctor/Scalpel torturing Sam.
    * Demolishor (incorrectly labelled as Devastator) riding through the bridge as Optimus prepares to jump on him.
    * The Fallen appearing in Egypt.
    * Ravage jumping up.
    * Bumblebee in fighting stance (which looks like it's from TF1).
    * Arcee chasing Sideways.
    * Ironhide doing his jump-and-roll thing during the Mission City battle.
    * A generic Optimus photo.

    It is amusing to see entertainment publications squirm for information when they don't have any. Remember Empire's web feature where they used leaked photos, and when that was lacking, copy-pasted parts of G1 bios found on Wikipedia?

    Another article that sounds like it was put together by reading fan blogs and piecing together various bits of (sometimes wrong) information.

    Which is the whole reason why I posted it. It amused me in its inaccuracy.

    SOUNDWAVE
    Flying thing
    He originally turned into a tape player. Because that's too preposterous even for Transformers -- cassettes are so 20th century -- he now flies.


    flying cassettes ? :rolleyes:
