    Maybe we could get Mr. Optimus Prime to be a Military personel guy on the base. That would be a nice touch.. Have Optimus catch him and save his life or something.

    "I'm excited about the opportunity to showcase our terrific airmen and our amazing Air Force capabilities."

    And watch them get stomped flat by a bunch of marauding Decepticons. :ev:

    That means real vehicles, real pilots and real military precision. A movie like this could not be done if it didn't have the total support of the DOD. Dreamworks, Spielberg and Bay must carry some serious respect amongst the military brass.

    (Hodge admits that he was a big fan of Transformers when he was a child.

    "I grew up watching those cartoons," he said,"I had those toys. I think I played with them a little too long.

    "My mom was worried about me," Hodge said, grinning broadly. "She kept saying, 'Why don't you go outside and talk to some girls.'")


    Hmm, my parents never said anything about that. Must be why I'm still single.:wink: 

    Then again, I don't play with Transformers, I collect them.:sly: 


    Anyway, impressive article. US Jets as Seekers? AWESOME!:lol

    That sounds awesome, I'm so excited!!!!!!! Anyone who says "this movie is going to suck" (not mentioning names or threads) is so wrong!

    Well, I'm not saying anything about the movie being "wow, awesome" just yet, but this is very encouraging. Transformers VS the real military will certainly be a sight to behold.

    Humans basically have no effect on Transformers. I hope they don't "score one for human kind".

    This is huge news and will lend a large amount of credibility to the film. Which is somethig that I think it will need more then anything.

    This is awesome. My sister lives in Alamagordo and said the paramount trailers are parked a block or two from her house. I asked her about extras but she said that everyone involved would have serious background checks cuz its all on base. So cool though, my little nephews got way excited when I told them they were making the live action movie right by their house.

    Very nice. Man, I can't wait for this movie. Having DOD support is really going to help out.
