    There is a lot of things that have sprouted up over the past little while, but what really do we not know yet. The only things that come to mind are:

    What Arcee combiner looks like
    What the 3rd bike is
    If they even have names in the movie (Bikes)
    What Soundwave looks like in CG
    What the twins look like combined
    How many seekers are in the movie
    Protoforms are they anyone we know
    Will we see the primes
    How far the novelization skews from the movie
    Is Alice a form of someone else ie, Laserbeak

    These are what I came up with at the top of my head

    Oh and I don't know if this has been answered, but what are all those little scarab looking things in the new TV spot?
    (Edit) nevermind, just found out lol

    Got any answers, or more questions, post em

    That's pretty much all the stuff I was wondering. Except, I thought I read somewhere that Alice was Ravage, but I'm not 100% sure that's true. I very well could be wrong.

    I have heard differently, plus I think that there was a leaked image of a metalic puppet (not like Ravage) that was filmed at Princeton

    Yep, that puppet IS Alice's robot mode, it's in the comic adaptation. Looks exactly the same.

    Anyway, question wise :

    What does CGI Jolt look like.
    Where and when does Jolt join the Autobot forces. The Volt was not on any of the "Shanghai" sets. Maybe he's already at NEST HQ.
    Is Soundwave actually going to come to earth. (Betting no)

    Ravage can't be Alice because, at least by the novel, he's stealing the shard while Sam is at school. So unless he is extremely fast, he can't be in two places across the world within a few hours.

    I like the list you made. My biggest question is whether or not this movie is as overhyped as I think it might be. I hope not. My guess is yes in a sense that most of the things we have been anticipating for over a year now (Arcee, Soundwave) are going to be incredibly underwhelming and underused in the movie. I do think the movie will be amazing, just over saturated with bots with little to no character developement. Hopefully Sam's mom realy does get high on thsoe brownies though. That would be an amazing scene. I'm not sure if they will go there though.

    Apparently we don't know much about looots of things considering that all adapted material seems to be from extra outdated script.

    also forgot what Jolt's role in the film is-we know pretty muc h nothing about him.

    i think they might-Princeton got mad at first that Bay chose their name for the movie for one funny scene with the mom that didnt really promote their school in a positive manner, so dont be surprised if it really isnt Princeton. but ya, to me, it seems like the scene shall be in.

    The Twins don't combine at all after getting their own forms. the only time they combine is when forming the two halves of the Ice Cream Truck, unless I'm mistaken and i missed something.

    My biggest question though, is megs a triple changer or not? we know he has his tank form, but their must be some flight capability left, albeit not as fast or agile as his cybertronian jet form.

    "How many robots form Devastator?" Is another. Conflicting sources on that.

    As for Soundwave's robot mode, it is the same as the toy and his appearance in Definace #4. (And I think we'll see him in the film and I look forward to a proper CGI version.)

    What Arcee combiner looks like: Probably a bigger version of the smaller bike bots
    What the 3rd bike is: I have been saying Moonracer but there are more female Autobots than I know.
    If they even have names in the movie (Bikes): Probably not mentioned. The toys are the only source of knowing their names I guess. I don't think Brawl, Barricade, Bonecrusher, or Blackout's names were mentioned in the first movie other than the part where they were all rolling out and it had their names in text.
    What Soundwave looks like in CGI: At least we have a good idea...
    What the twins look like combined: Meh. Don't care personally. I don't like how there are so many wheelbots and combiners in the movie. So annoying.
    How many seekers are in the movie: I think that the book said ten (10). We only see Starscream, Jetfire, and Ransack, but they aren't even legit Seekers (Well SS is)
    Protoforms are they anyone we know: Probably not. The protoforms are supposed to be faceless because they serve as the infantry. The shoot and get shot at and most will probably die (if not all).
    Will we see the Primes: I'm not sure. I really hope so. I didn't even know that there were 13 (I only know Optimus, Sentinel, Vector, Rodimus, Primus, Prima, Primon, and that's it.)
    How far the novelization skews from the movie: Apparently a lot. No Jolt means not the movie. This means that Springer is probably still in the running (He has a Movie Legends AND Robot Heroes toy. Both are known to have on screen movie characters only).
    Is Alice a form of someone else ie, Laserbeak: Oh whoa, wait... what the heck?! I think it will just go by the name "Alice".

    I really wonder why the Autobots and even a few Decepticons have such English names. Ravage, Blackout, Frenzy, Rumble, Bumblebee, Hound, Mirage, Overhaul, Jazz, Prowl, Blaster... THE LIST GOES ON AND ON OF ENGLISH WORDS AS ALIEN ROBOT NAMES. SO WEIRD!!!! But I wouldn't expect them to answer this in the movie.

    I want to know if the Arcee bots are just cannon fodder because they are seeming like it. So is Jolt actually. It seems that Optimus, BB, Skids, Mudflap, and Jetfire play the biggest Autobot roles and everyone else is just there. That's not cool. :(

    "Seeker" refers to the workers of the original 13 who seeked out suns for them to harvest I think, no relation to the G1 term seeker.

    After 25 years of TF, your only asking this now?!

    There was a line in the earlier leaked draft of the first movie, I think it was from Prime that explained that they took earthern names that related to their temperament/personality but that line obviously never made it to the final movie and we just got "This is Jazz, this is Bumblebee" etc.
