My question is:
1) Is there something worth mentioning that this second movie is lacking or weaker than the first one? (in your opinion at least)


Another one:
2) I'm almost positive about this but, did Michael request more detail and realism than before for all robots?

1. It might be a few minutes longer, which in our minds is a weakness. You may not agree.

2. Yes. ILM, as a result of all the R&D of the first movie is able to do much more this time in terms of detail and movement.

1.If you were to put Wheelie in either ROTF or any future installments, would you have him talk in rhyme and how fast would you kill him off?
2.What are your thoughts on the IDW ROTF prequel comics?

How late into production was the Chevy Volt/Jolt added? Was it during filming, or right after the strike when you guys had to jam out a script?

And... since he was added so late, does he fit organically into the movie? That is, does he actually play a vital role or is he sort of just "there" to appease whoever mandated his appearance?

No, we put him in before production started, during the mad dash to get a shooting draft ready. But we always knew we WANTED to put him in from early on when we saw the design and realized it was a truly unique car. We just had to convince Michael that he could fit organically into the team and be as cool as the others.

Alliance is one half of the Revenge of the Fallen prequel comic series Transformers: Destiny. The events of the first issue is set concurrently with the previous comic series, The Reign of Starscream*, in the period between the defeat of Megatron at Mission City and the dumping of the Decepticon corpses in the Atlantic Ocean.

The other half of Destiny is the soon-to-be-released Defiance. It is apparently set far in Cybertron's past, before factions and war, possibly explaining how Megatron came to lust for power.


*Starscream's depiction in ROS (and other comics by Chris Mowry) is somewhat unusual if one thinks of Starscream characters as scheming backstabbers. He's an flawed "good guy" who wants what he believes is truly the best for his people, but has been so corrupted over the years that his noble goals have been buried under self-interest.

I think TV Tropes calls that an "anti-villain".

But seriously, Bob, I gotta agree with FFN there. The comics by Chris Mowry are a really decent addition to the movieverse. Issue 1 of Alliance actually manages to capture the essence of the movie cast and even the humor form the movie. Go check it out.
