    ok i was at superhero hype here's a list of who was in and out

    Currently Confirmed Autobots:
    Optimus Prime -- Semi-Truck or Fire Truck (Depends on rumor)
    Bumblebee -- Camero

    Currently Rumored Autobots:
    Jazz -- Sportscar (Rumored to be anything from a Corvette to a Lamborghini)
    Ironhide -- Pickup Truck (Rumored to be a black and red pickup truck)
    Ratchet -- Ambulance

    Taken Out of the Movie Autobots:
    Arcee -- Motorcycle, Once one of the original Autobot choices but was taken out and replaced by another Autobot. Supposedly Ironhide replaced her. Robert Orci (writer) officially stated that the reason she was cut was that the story worked better without her in it. That the story played out better with her replaced. (*Most assume this is a BS statement, since almsot everyone wanted Arcee removed from the movie.)

    Rumored to Have Been in at One Time Autobots:
    These 'Bots were rumored to have been in the Autobot Roster at different points throughout the pre-production period...
    Prowl
    Wheeljack
    Mirage
    Sideswipe
    Tracks
    Brawn

    Currently Confirmed Decepticons:
    Megatron -- Cybertronian Jet (Rumored to be colored Black and Grey)
    Starscream -- F-22 Raptor
    Scorponok -- Minion of Helicopter Decepticon, Ejected from Helicopter Robot's Back
    Bonecrusher -- Military Mine-Clearing Armored Truck (Not Part of the Constructicons)

    Currently Used Place Holder Named Decepticons:
    These 'Cons are listed as Place Holders for whoever the real 'Cons turn out to be. They are NOT the actual Decepticon Characters, or at least not yet.
    Vortex -- Helicopter
    Devastator -- M1 Abrams Tank
    Brawl -- Mustang Police Car

    Taken Out of the Movie Decepticons:
    These 'Cons were in the script originally (First Draft - Confirmed), but were taken out.
    Grimlock -- Helicopter (Yes, Grimlock was the original Decepticon Helicopter in Script)
    Blitzwing -- Military Cargo Plane
    Onslaught -- Missile Truck
    Brawl -- Military Jeep (Brawl was originally a Jeep in the First Draft)
    Frenzy -- Mobile Mortar Launcher
    Octane -- Tanker Truck
    Devastator -- 747 Jet

    Rumored to Have Been in at One Time Decepticons:
    These 'Cons were rumored to have been in the Decepticon Roster at different points during the pre-production period...
    Skywarp
    Thundercracker
    Shockwave
    Ravage
    Rumble

    Soundwave:
    Soundwave has been in and out of this production for a while. He was once the Decepticon Helicopter. The Helicopter's name was changed to the Place Holder Name, "Vortex", but all of Soundwave's abilities stayed with the 'Copter...the abilities of a sonic attack, ejecting a minion (Scorponok), and hacking into the military's computers.
    Then he became a 4.5ft tall stereo, that is very fragile and gets his head knocked off by one of the main humans, a teenage chick. He supposedly would have had a few scenes with the Decepticon Police Car as well as was planned to sneak onboard Air Force One as this small stereo-former.

    Outdated but Interesting list, but I wonder if any of it was true. They really did seem to fling the G1 names around with very little respect. Grims a helicopter? Come on.

    Though do hope some of those choices make it into TF2! Octane and Onslaught FTW.

    He won't be a helicopter since he can't top Blackout for sheer Helicopter awesomeness.

    I want him to be a Tape Deck that got stranded on Earth in the 80s :)  Like the IDW vesion. Or a Military communications truck with a bunch of communication Gizmos that turn into Laserbeak, Ratbat, Ravage, Rumble, and Frenzy 2.0

    Isn't Barricade's character more similar to the original Soundwave?

    I'm not just saying he's got Frenzy/Soundbyte in his chest.
    Look, he's royal to Megatron; at the same time, he considers Screamer a better choice of leader when Big Meg's absent.
    And Blackout/Votex is always not happy seeing Starscream to lead.

    True that does look like a great design for Soundwave. I'd love to see it. But alas these are Micheal Bays Transformers, so if Soundwave does ever get put into the other movies, he'll no doubt be yellow, with red polka dots, and will have the head of a praying mantis. But a feller can dream.

    Damn that Soundwave is sweet!!! I wonder what his alt mode is? Looks like some kind of military vehicle like most of the decepticons in the movie already. BTW No this thread doesnt need to be closed Optimus. I was just wondering the point of it but know I see.

    It says under the first pic that his alt mode is a Balkan MK 6... I think it has a pic of that in the wallpaper too, also a closeup of his face.

    Blackout IS Soundwave. Look at his head, look at his function, look at his colourscheme.

    Naw, Frenzy is Soundwave, it says so in the script.

    Blackout was originally supposed to be Vortex.

    Barricade=Brawl. etc.
