Obviously, a lot can change between the novelization and the film, as we already know with Jolt and Mudflap being sucked up rather than Skids. So, what else do you hope to be different for better in the film? -Soundwave: I don't mind if he does not come to Earth, but I at least hope he'll meet with Megatron at some point, hopefully during his arrival at the Nemesis (this may be true looking at the Gathering at Nemesis set which was just revealed). -Devastator: In the novel he only fights the Twins and the soldiers for a short time, and is for the most part not doing so much. I hope he really tears some humans or bots up in the movie. -Arcee and Sideswipe: Both are really shafted in the novel, with only about 2 or 3 lines each. I really hope they are given something to besides showing off at Shanghai. -The number of unnamed Cons: There are a lot of Cons in the novel. A real, real lot. But most of them are not named and have no character whatsoever. What's worse, most of them show up for about 5 seconds and most disappear. I know there will be some random bots but I would at least like to see some homages in there. -The Final Battle: Prime takes out the Fallen way too quickly. For the titluar villain, I hope that they will have a decent fight. Things I don't want changed a bit: -Skids, Mudflap, and Wheelie: I thought these characters were perfect. The Twins were not too over the top or annoying, and Wheelie is just as I imagined him. They are very fun characters. -Jetfire: Again, not too over the top and a very solid portrayal. I think Bay was exaggerating when describing him and the Twins' comedic aspects.
