    OK, there's been rapant speculation on which Autobots and Decepticons people would like to see in any and all upcoming sequels to TFTM'07, but the really important question is: What people would you like to see in TF2 and beyond?

    As for me, I think Sam and Mikaela are an absolute must. Beyond them, I'd really like to see Sam's parents return, Jon Voight back as the newly-elected President, and John Turturro skulking around looking to avenge the dissolving of S7.

    As far as new characters, I'd really like to see Mikaela's dad, and I'd totally geek-out over a Chip Chase cameo.

    Beyond that, there is no need at all for any other human from TFTM'07 to return, IMO.

    Thoughts?

    These human characters weren't that annoying, except the sector seven guys. So I could go for seeing them all in the sequels.

    That's most likely not an option lol.

    Hey, I'd love a more TF-focused story, but you gotta have at least some humans around... even if they're only there to get flicked around. (that bit by Megs was awesome!:) )

    Who knows...maybe Mikaela's dad's nickname is Sparkplug?
    Marissa Faireborn would be pretty cool; it would be nice to have her doing her thing as a human-Cybertron relation liaison.
    Also, now that's it's established in the movie timeline that there are two factions of Transformers, there's narrative room in the sequel for human collaborators, people who would have said "yes" to Megatron's offer to make them his pet. A new take on Archeville would be pretty cool, and would allow for more insight into the Decepticons without relying on Optimus' rather biased storytelling...

    I'd keep Sam nd Megan Fox, the Sec of State, the two soldier guys and since they were in the first movie the two hackers. I get rid of Sam's parents and Sector Seven.

    But what do you NEED them for, especially the hackers? I could maybe see them coming back to the soldiers with a need for their TF-battling experience, but I don't think it's neccesary.

    Plus, to me, less people = more TF.

    Sam, Mikaela and Sam's Parents. Everyone else from the first one was pretty much forgettable (I was entertained by Anthony Anderson, but the character felt completely forced IMO). Honestly my favorite human character in the movie was Bobby Bolivia, and no use in bringing him back for a sequel.

    I'd keep Spike, Mikaela, Spike's parents, and ditch every other human character from the first film. Maybe add a couple new human characters, but not too many. I think the movie had way too many characters that weren't from the cartoon or comic, if they add any more, they should add people like Chip Chase, Carly, G.B. Blackrock, etc. Keep humans to a minimum though, and with the focus on Spike.

    I'd hope that those human character would form a team working with the Autobots.
    You have Sam and Megan ( I can't spell her characters name for some reason) leading the group of humans while working closely with Optimus and bumblebee.
    The two soldiers guys would help Ironhide and another soldier Autobot.
    The two hackers would study the transformers and aid Ratchet.


    The humans will always be the most promenient aspect of these movies so we need to figure out a way to intergrate them into the film more effeciently. By coupling them with individual autobots their conversations will give the autobots more character development than the one liners they recieve grouped together.

    I think it'd also be interesting if John Turturro's character was brought back, but as a villian working with Starscream. It'd work, especially since he lost his job he'd naturally blame the autobots.

    That's a great point. Now I want to see Tyrese and Josh back with the 'Bots. Rachel Taylor would be a welcome addition as well, but I'm gonna have to pass on Anthony Anderson. :) 

    Also, if Tracks makes it into a movie, I DEMAND Raoul comes too! Better yet, I want Raoul (played by Luis Guzman) to BE Makaela's Dad and to try and boost Tracks in the flick. :)

    I'd love to see Hugo Weaving in a human role.

    Then like, at the end he's revealed to be the Headmaster for a new Megatron body.

    I just included Anderson since he's a pretty funny guy, and not a necessary character. I thought Anderson's scenes were much funnier than Sam or his parents.

    I see people wanting G1 characters, but I dont think thats such a great idea since we have enough fueds about G1 influence in this movie. Lets not add that...
