    June/July 2007, Issue #3. Two variant covers: one promoting "Pathfinder" and the other with Optimus' head facing left like some of the posters. No brainer. :cool: 

    Cross-post from what I started over at the Allspark.

    OR...

    - Tyrese Gibson, Combat Controller Epps in the film
    - Screenwriters Robert Orci and Alex Kurtzman
    - Animation Supervisor Scott Benza
    - Digital Production Supervisor Jeff White
    Interview author Matt Cabral admitted that he wasn't "...exactly sportin' an Optimus Prime-emblazoned T-shirt like many of [his] Autobot-worshiping peers". However, he does say that watching the film would be akin to watching JP the first time, where you jaw dropped when the first Brachiosaurus showed up on screen (I certainly did). In his words, "Transformers holds promise of packing that same jaw-on-the-floor punch."

    There's also a two-page quickie on the game near the end of the mag. Technically about three paragraphs but positive words and sweet pics (that we've seen via game trailers) kinda makes up for it.

    Yes, the article said "1985" on Benza's portion of his interview.

    Thanks, lonegamer. Are those just excerpts from full interviews, or is that the extent of what they said?

    Excerpts of what I felt were important and should calm some folks (namely certain Conplainers). Though that's probably asking a bit. :D 

    Wha, you want me to post all 7 pages of the thing? :wink:

    I'd love to read it, but can understand that if you don't :D 

    And if you want to calm some complainers, you may as well poke them with a hot iron, because the outcome is often the same :p  ;)

    this is such a strange line. as if other races would be fine with a giant mechanical scorpion jumping out of the ground at them.

    It's obvious that white folk are used to stuff popping out of the ground, I mean look at Tremors.
