    In the Mirage and various other threads, Nelson of Bay's website is generally regarded to be full of it.

    What statements has he made in regards to the first two movies, and what actually was the truth? It seems to me that if he indeed is full of it most of the time, I wouldn't be sweating the various issues such as the Twins, Mirage, etc.

    Going to add these as they're mentioned:

    1) "Megatron isn't in ROTF" - FALSE
    2) "Ferrari isn't Mirage" - ?
    3) "Twins aren't in DOTM" - ?
    4) Soundwave isn't the SLS - FALSE
    5) The Mercedes was Brains friend - FALSE

    What exactly is Nelsons position? I know that he runs the SFTE forums, but what else does he do? Is he some sort of PA to Bay? He was on about checking translated scripts the other day, and yet in the past he's made a big deal about visiting the sets. Not knocking the guy, just genuinely interested in what his position actually is.

    As far as "Megatron isn't in ROTF" I think that was all Bay, no Nelson. IIRC, Nelson was pretty reliable up until this whole twins business started.

    Don't forget to add that he said the Twins weren't in the movie and that their cars were different characters altogether. Then he backflipped and said they were in the movie but just as their cars, and not themselves (?), then later said they were being edited out. And let's not forget he claimed that the firetruck was never Sentinel Prime during production and wasn't confirmed to be during post-production either. He said this after their was an MTV video of Bay himself stating that Sentinel would be in the movie.

    I have nothing against the bloke personally of course, I do respect the fact he takes the time to answer questions from the fans, but I'd much prefer it if he didn't play silly mind games with the fandom. Having said that, he was right about the Ark, Rosie being cast as Carly, told us that pimped up jeep was not Rollbar but some fans car and lastly that the rumoured name of Rush for the Ferrari was actually a mistake and was the street name. So he is not completely full of it, as some of you think.

    Now I normaly would be the last guy to stick up for Nelson because to me he really is a... well... ill just keep those words to myself. On the other hand, Nelson may not be in the loop as much as some think he is but Nelson none the less is at least at the bottom of the rope that makes the loop. The guy does have conections to Bay and does work for Bay. He just lets it go to his head sometimes and tries to play God with what he does know or is allowed to know.

    like I said... hes at the bottom of that loop and he is allowed to know some things. These are the things he always hints at and or is willing to openly say is true or not true. One thing I think is funy about him though, Neson is so uptight about saying the twins are not in the movie and or that the SLS is just a car or with things like Mirage's so called name chage but then this is the same guy that out of nowhere just tells the world that the ship on the moon is the Ark lol I mean the Ark is very important to the plot. You would think he would have tried to throw people off on that too.

    My impression is that Nelson is mostly just putting out whatever Bay wants out to the fan sites. He's just too much of a loyal Bay fan boy to ever say anything bad about Bay or to leak anything Bay wanted to keep under wraps.

    Wasn't Nelson the one who said that Silverbolt was in DOTM and then
    the character isn't even in the book, so I doubt he's in the movie.

    my favorite part about the "boy who cried wolf" is when the wolf rips the boy to shreds as the boy cries for help, but no one comes. :ev:  i like to think that boy is nelson.:lol

    He also did confirm that Optimus had flames, and that the Nascar trio was the Wreckers.
    So far it looks like he's #winning at a Charlie Sheen rate...

    Then that makes me wonder if, at one time, Silverbolt was going to be in it, or if they were part of the disinformation campaign.
