    Next 'Transformers' is due for a switch - USATODAY.com

    Additionally, the movie will be in 3D. The film's plot will delve into the Transformers' secret role in the space race (Ghost-1 anyone?) and Bay says the Twins are 'basically gone' to tone down the humour everyone complained about in ROTF.

    I'm sensing a Leader Class Shockwave for TF3.

    Awesome news. I'd love to see a Leader Shockwave the quality of Buster Prime.

    Whoawhoawhoawhoa...SHOCKWAVE is the new bad guy? TF3 is already looking better than ROTF.

    I just hope the design isn't as crap-tacular as Megatron. Hell, WfC Shockwave's design would be excellent as a figure (especially a Leader Class...)

    I want to get excited for this but ROTF hurt the movie franchise so much for me. I hope it turns to at the least be a fun action flick like TF1. I don't want everyone to mark off Transformers as a stupid, toy-promoting franchise (even if it sorta it) like ROTF did

    Do want. This definitely gets me a little more hyped for TF3.

    This is promising, Provided Shockwave's design stays somewhat with the monoeye theme.

    It might be dangerous to expect a good toy considering this is the only time he will be in a transformers live action movie. If they have worked on this design really well, I will be super hyper about the movie.

    he was in the first movie game, and I think his design was decent so they should just keep that.

    Shockwave? Yes please.

    Although I am taking this with a grain of salt, I can believe that Shockwave would be one of the main villains for TF3. It's almost a given he would be in the series at some point.
    The Twins being "almost gone" I have a little harder of a time believing though. They will probably still be in the movie, but if my hopes are correct, there will be enough new Autobots that The Twins won't be taking up all the screentime.

    Could we put the movie news in the movie section so that way those of us that don't want to be spoiled aren't?
