    My perceptions: The movie is filming slower, I feel, compared to the first one. Part of this is due to not having a teaser trailer out in theaters yet, where as the first movie had one out around this time. I feel they are keeping things more hushed in this one, especially since we have not seen any actual robot art/pics by now. Also, we really dont know anything about the plot and though weve seen pics of the new Autobots, weve hardly seen much of the new 'Cons.

    My expectations: Since its filming slower, I expect them to have a better editing process and better dialogue. I dont necessarily expect them to develop the robot characters, but I do expect them to give them more screen time. I expect the new robots to blow me away, I expect a music score as good as the first.

    i expect new characters, characters that im familiar with from G1 especially..great alt and robot modes...dont care for the explosions but i hope ur right about the editing and dialogue...the first movie's dialogue was great anyway, i thought...so they dont need to improve, just keep it as good..im sure the score will be great...
    i really hope that silver concept corvette is wheeljack...i saw this large rumour list of characters that could be in this movie...i highly doubt that they'll all make it, considering that just 5 autobots and 6 decepticons made it to TF1...but i hope there are many new characters along with the ones from the TF1...

    I expect a final battle that actually focuses on the bots, and I basically expect the same movie as last time....only turned up to.....about 8. (The third movie should turn it up to 11.)

    I expect, and hope...., that this movie will have more scenes with Transformers in it and less scenes that are not needed (sams happy time, trip to the hackers house, etc.) . Also i hope the Decepticons get alot more screen time then the first one...

    I'm hoping the movie will be at least two and a half hours long.

    To be thoroughly entertained with, edge of the seat action, TF's left right and centre and explosions! The first one had me leaving the theatre bouncing and wanting to see it again, aftet having a shite week at work. Here's hoping i get that again.

    Depends on which aspect as to where my expectations are at.

    If producers, the suits and other people keep their hands out the story then I'm expecting a better story. I don't have a good track record with the writers work on movies, but from their work on TV I know they can do some really good stuff.

    I expect ILM will still have it's high standards of being able to mix real and CGI together.

    Music should still be good.

    Expectations are pretty low on anything that requires the director. Still haven't found a Bay film I'd watch more than once so that's not a very good track record. Effects are good, but things like the humor is pretty hit or miss. Doesn't really seem good at having a really cool bad guy for his films so that could a bit of a let down as a Decepticon fan.

    Really didn't like the robot designs the first go round so I expect I'll still hate the look the second go round. On the bright side though that does save me from having to buy any movie related toys or comic books.

    So I guess over all I expect I'll be happy with some things but still let down about other things.

    I thoroughly loved the first one, so i don't really know how you can top it.

    I mean I agree there needs to be more scenes with the robots, but i really liked the idea of a boy and his car in the first film which grounded it.

    Oh hell as long as theres cars explosions and Megan Fox it can't be that bad can it!

    I think this nails it on the head pretty well for me, also.

    i have a feeling that plot wise it's going to turn out to be a jumbled mess. but i also think that action is going to be so amazing intense and ridiculous that it just won't matter.

    I expect to get mobbed by all my normal friends about all teh details... and to podcast a lot about it all.

    Maybe record fan's reactions of it.

    Lots of more impulse toys, and more splosions.

    well...

    I expect
    -plenty of human shenanigans.
    -More robots
    -To be disappointed by the design of at least one new bot
    -An awesome movie overall, hopefully tickling my fan bone.
