    It's not neccessarily a remake of G1. The movies are it's own seperate continuity. It just borrows elements from the original material like all the continuities that rised up after G1's reign ended.

    It's possible to have characters with the same name and even the same general role who aren't really the same character. Take Megatron for example, G1, Beast Wars, Animated and the movies he's the leader of the bad guys and he's determined that he's going to control the fate of Cybertron under his iron rule. Yet none of the Megatron characters are exactly the same character even when the names are the same or they share some design elements.

    While you can watch the movies and point out nods here and there to G1 it's still it's own place and not bound by the rules of G1. Autobots and Decepticons don't crash on Earth millions of years ago. Autobots don't operate out of the wrecked Ark. Bumblebee is a fighter now instead of the plucky little guy that can't fight. No space bridges so far.

    I think the OP is specifically asking whether Bay's third film will be a remake of sorts of TFTM 1986.

    In which case, do we even know if Unicron is really coming?

    I have been wondering is the third movie going to tell the beginning of the Cybertron war and it is hard to tell if Unicron is going to be in the third movie.

    I guess we will find out this summer or next fall.

    More likely, if the leaked concept art is legit the film will follow the general plot of Cybertron, rather than the '86 movie. But we'll see next summer. Anything's possible.

    I haven't read all the novels, comic books, or heard the film commentary so I don't know if it was covered in any of it. From the movie it seemed more like how Nightcrawler can teleport with other people, except Jetfire doesn't need a line of sight and it seems be a bit wonky with how it handles the time stream.

    With any luck someone here has read something that explains what the Jetfire hop is.

    Jetfire said he used the "Space Bridge" after he teleported them to Egypt. So yeah, the Space Bridge was used.

    Nothing confirmed but you know how speculation somehow becomes rumor and then someone will take a rumor and run with it like it was a fact.

    We are starting to get a few little tid-bits here and there about the film but I don't recall any solid information about which new characters we will get in the movie.

    The twist will be that Cybertron is a sleeping Unicron. Junkions have settled on the depowered planet since the Transformers have abandoned it. They'll repair it and accidentally reactivate it. A hungry Unicron will follow the fading trail of Allspark power and try to eat Earth. He'll mentally take control of the Junkions and use them as drones to attack the planet. Cue the Autobots and Decepticons battling zombiefied junkbots. The Matrix will be used again, maybe by a more mature Bumblebee, to deactivate Unicron. Sam will say 'No no no' a lot. The Autobots will go live back on Cybertron. The Junkions will happily live in our landfills.

    Ouch don't give them any ideas or the Junkions will end up looking like robotic versions of the Prawns from District 9.
