Bob Orci,

Is Arcee going to have a different design, or will her design be similar to the original Arcee design?

Hey Roberto,
Do you ever expect a Transformer to utter a phrase in an earth language other than English? IE: ¿!¿!Eres tu Ebay usador Hombre de Muchachas 217?!?!

Thanks!
Yes.

Hmmm... since my computer sleeps, I figure they do, too.

3. Sorry that this is a Trek, not Transformers query: Will the movie have that "airplane flying" sound that fills every room (essentially the sound of space against the window?) I find that very annoying, but I obviously don't know how you, Alex, J.J., Damon or Bryan feel.
Reposted my questions. Btw, Trek looks fantastic.

Just a few quick geek-queries about TF1's Scorponok:

a) A number of fans, myself included, noticed a lot of similarities between Movie Scorponok and his Beast Wars namesake, certainly more than existed between him and the more famous G1 Headmaster version. Were these just coincidental similarities based on a similar size and altmode, or was Movie Scorponok a conscious BW nod? If so, might we see any more in future films?
b) Scorponok departs the movie fairly early on, and in fairly ragged shape. Was the implication of his exit scene that he was just scuttling off to die somewhere, or was it your intention to deliberately leave his fate ambiguous?
c) I've heard and seen so many conflicting reports on this, so if you could please settle this once and for all: was Scorponok's scorpion form supposed to be his robot mode or his altmode? Common sense, as well as the evidence of his design and markings, would suggest that he's a beast robot by default (a la Ravage) who transforms into a part of Blackout's fuselage, but the toy and certain other supplementary materials prefer to present the scorpion as an altmode, disguising a (pretty unconvincing) standard bipedal robot. Which of those is closest to your original idea?

Thanks for your time, Bob...I've been incredibly impressed with your conduct towards the fans, and wish you success with your future projects.
Conscious nod to BW. We wanted to find some organic way to do something more than just vehicles, and when we hit upon the notion of soliders trapped behind enemy lines being hunted by a Decepticon, Skorpy seemed to fit the bill.

3) Can we expect lots of fights as cool as Optimus vs. Bonecrusher from TF1 but longer?
1.)

2.) I would've perhaps chosen otherwise...

3.) Yes, indeed.
