    Or I got thinking about it and in the first movie we saw that the Decepticons had holograms so unless the Autobots like standing out by being cars that drive themselves then the Autobots must also have holograms.

    To get around the problem of looking like Knight Rider IDW had the holograms do the talking while the robots were in car mode. Thus a way to deliver more lines and get in more of the movie without having to pay for CGI just to say something. The holograms could even be cast to reflect something about the robots personality.

    A while back someone suggested that Peter Cullen could be Prime's hologram as a fan nod and then he could just deliver his lines in a truck rather than a sound stage.

    Ha ha, might could even do something weird like Bumblebee using a hologram that looks like Sam.

    Hey Bob,

    do you know whether J.J. Abrams still has any clue what Lost is currently about? Rumor has it that he hasn't talked to Damon and Carlton in ages. :D

    A ton more screen time for the TF's in this sequel. Exactly as you said, the first movie was built around the premise of a mystery being revealed, which allowed us to hide the robots. In the sequel, we have a different premise that maximizes them.

    We did write the Transformations into the first one to be very slow, based on a suggestion from Steven Spielberg that we really take our time describing it. Won't necessarily be the case next time.

    No idea. I'll ask him or Damon. I can tell you this, the show is LOST without him.

    Mr Orci...

    If you had the chance to make any movie you wanted, with the cast you wanted, what would it be and who would you cast in it?

    Also are you aware of any official stuff in the 'release' pipelines for TF:ROTF?

    I have to admit that, despite at least one viewing of TF:ROTF will definately be undertaken by me, the lack of any official infomation has taken a tiny amount of shine off the movie for me.

    Thank you for taking time to read our comments Sir and i hope to be back here for TF:3:D

    There has been talk that there will be more (if not a lot more) Transformers in this movie. I’m a little concerned it could end up like the X-Men movies with to much of a good thing. Cramming characters in to make fans happy and in turn diluting said characters. So the question! Can you squelch my fears of this?

    I don't know if this one has been asked before (Probably has a million times) BUT I have to ask.

    I know Soundwave is confirmed and Jet/Skyfire but any other G1 characters like Shockwave/Ravage/Buzzsaw and or Laserbeak and or Brawn or Trailbreaker?

    You really can't have Soundwave without Laserbeak/Ravage it's like his calling card.

    And do you think Megatron will come back or are we going to see Galvatron?

    And even though I know it won't happen I'd love to see down the road my all time favorite deceps the combaticon's...maybe wishful thinking

    Thanks!

    Hello Mr. Orci,

    This is my first time asking a question so here goes:

    Will you and Alex do an Official video reveal of all the upcoming sequel's Robotic characters again on Yahoo!.com?

    Thank you for your time, and good day.

    I think Damon and Carlton are doing a damn fine job... I just find it funny how people who aren't diehard fans still think of it as J.J.'s show, when from all we know, Damon and Carlton have pretty much been the real masterminds behind it since early season 1. ;) 

    [Orci]What is a Laserbeak/Ravage?[/Orci]

    :D 

    (HINT: Rumor has it that this was described as "bird-like" on the set.)

    Mr. Orci...

    I have no idea how big the budget for marketing was for the first movie, but are we going to see and hear a lot of marketing for RotF this time around? Comparable to the last movie or more? Thanks in advance!

    Reason I ask, is because I liked all the viral marketing done for the last movie, but then I loo at how intricate the viral was for Dark Knight, and thought RoftF could use a little of the same.

    Bob-O, will the Transformers names in ROTF be known before the movie is released? I'm referring to an official announcement.
