    "Scouts for the Transformers 2 movie - which will be shot here this spring-summer - recently were intrigued by the Masonic Temple, across from City Hall. Specific attention was paid to the Egyptian Room."

    Add that to the news Bay was in Egypt, and let slip the dogs of speculation!


    Comics2Film have also posted a brief update concerning filming in Michigan.

    All I want to know is wether or not robots willl be there.

    Sounds like there might be some sort of magical Egyption artifact or legend to explore in TF2. Sounds interesting.

    Why do I get the feeling that Nicolas Cage is going to show up looking for treasure?

    I can see it now.. Around the early 20th century, a archaeological dig uncovered a silver/black stone/metallic ring in Egypt, which the US Air-Force has kept secret for all these years.. Along comes a researcher and activates the ring.. As it powers up, a water-effect/splash is seen in the middle of the ring, and from it emerges.. SHOCK WAVE.

    Oh gawhd..

    Maybe someone (Soundwave perhaps) arrived on Earth looking for Megatron, but was damaged, so manipulated cultures to reach a point that would repair his body (unlike Megs who was frozen, he's sentient but crippled a la TF: Animated Megatron).

    Please don't let be the awful cliche that an alien race (Transformers) gave birth to the first civilization and the pyramids are alien artifacts!!!

    maybe it's something like life on earth was created by something similar to the allspark, originating in egypt, because everything happened in egypt apparently.

    I wonder if they find out that there was a Transformer that landed there; he claims himself as the civilization's god (kinda like Astrotrain did on this one planet in a season 2 episode), then gets "betrayed" and leaves Earth. Just wild guessing.

    Speaking of God Astrotrain, all :bowdown:  to Space Choo-Choo!

    Oh, the Egypt conspiracy. No humans could have built those Pyramids.

    The Transformers helped them. Duh.

    What about this? The decepticons just blow up the pyramids because they can. Just a big FU to all of humanity. If they use Egypt for some retarded McGuffin, that's just lazy...Just blow it all up. Seriously, blow up the pyramids, and the sphinx.

    Go to Greece and blow that shit up too! Give the Autobots a reason to start a war, thus starting the third movie. Hell, just let me write the damn script. I could do a better job than the HACKS did on the first movie.

    All I really care about is when they're gonna announce a need for extras. I live in DC now and my sis goes to Penn right now. I would wait in line for days in both cities if it means I get a part in the movie.

    I saw that "Luxor" was mentioned on the front page, and thought I'd point out that The Luxor is the glass pyramid in Las Vegas, so perhaps this was what they were talking about.

    Luxor is also a place in Egypt, hence the Casino name.
