    Question For Mr. Orci: This isn't directly related to the in-production sequel, but I gotta ask, will Rodimus/Hot Rod ever make an appearance in any of the films (Assuming any more have been greenlighted) or even this sequel? I've been curious about it since... well, since after watching the 1st movie.

    Welcome. Looking forward to the movie!! Oh man, I know you know what kinda over sensitive fan boy babies lurk in here and you still let us know who you are. Dumb questions and people wanting favors. By the way, Need some custom Transformers for your office? Hahah. Shameless, I know.

    Mr. Orci,

    I'm not gonna bother with the sequal questions because that would be ridiculous, anyone who knows anything at all about the film industry would understand you can't answer specifics on that topic. However, thanks so much for all your efforts on the first film they were greatly appreciated.

    Now to my question:

    How does one go about finding out who owns a property, and after the property's owner is found how does one purchase rights to that property to produce a film. I have a killer idea for an oldy but goody. With the way things are coming out of Tinseltown now, this will fit right in.

    Edit: Okay...I just found out who owned the rights to this property. However they lost them at the end of 2007. I have a contact number but I am scared If I call to find out who owns the property now (if anyone) that they will re-purchase it with the intent to do what I want to do.....any suggestions.......

    Welcome, Mr Orci!

    I have a question: Why were the Transformers in the first film picked to be in it? Optimus and Megatron were obviously put in because it wouldn't be Transformers without them, but why were guys like Brawl and Bonecrusher in? Not complaining (Bonecrusher was awesome), but I'm just curious.

    Question for Mr Orci:

    First of all, thanks for joining us here and taking the time to answer our questions. :thumb 

    This is actually a curiosity I have about the first movie, so hopefully I can ask this without risking spoilers for the second. It relates to the cool little action moments such as Ironhide's slow-mo acrobatics, Bonecrusher's bodytackle of Prime and Starscream's vaulting under the bridge at the Hoover Dam.

    Were there any cool action ideas like that that you thought of or scripted for Movie 1 but that didn't see the light of day due to budget/technical issues etc?

    Many Thanks

    Coolhand.
    :)

    Question for Mr. Orci;

    In the original line-ups for the first movie there were some robots both sides that did not make the first film. Now we know Arcee will be in this one so could we expect some of the bots who did not appear in the first movie be in Transformers 2?

    Hello, Mr Orci, thanks for coming to talk to us, I really enjoyed your involvement on the old (official, first) movie board.

    What do you want this movie to do?

    Thanks again.

    Some choices came more about what vehicles we wanted, and worked backwards from what we needed for the story.

    There were a a couple things we couldn't do for budget, but also because they seemed too "out there" to the studio. Some of those things we get to do in the second movie. After we see it, I'll point out which.
