    TF1 was over 2 hours long and TF2 is supposed to be longer!

    40 'bots totall screams 2 things to me: tons of toys & cannon fodder, still cool though. Somewhat interested in Starscream being more like his G1-self, it's just that I really like what was done with him in RoS & hope they don't stry to much from that. I really hope they add in some more scenes with the 'cons.

    they can pull it off as long as the movie is at least 2 1/2 hours I suppose.

    I'm sure the surprise Bay is talking about is Holo Driver cullen

    I don't understand the comment "Since most of the Decepticons are CGI we can add scenes in post...."

    What I think it means is their alternate modes too. The Constructicons would have been too expensive to rent, Megatron and Soundwave's Cybertronian forms don't exist in real life and the military will not have an F-22 Raptor graffitied over like Starscream.

    40 robots is cool. Even if the 'rest' of them are just background character, it adds to the 'old' TF feel. Movie one only had a handful of bots and cons, and I don't really mind if they still focus on a core group, but having the feeling more than 2 new bots arrived to Prime's call would be nice. :p 

    Starscream more like G1? Nice! With the current movie comics Starscream, I was kind of fearing they'd steer away from that, but it seems the movie will do it 'right'. Awesome!

    Interesting news! I would like to know, after seeing the movie, just what scene Bay is now referring to as 'the fans are gonna love this' :D

    In another thread there was mention that Starscream might bring Megatron back.

    Might be a dumb question but Any chance SS wants to bring him (Megs) back to take on The Fallen? Maybe SS wants to see Megatron get defeated again but his plans fail.

    That's probably way out there. Sorry. :)

    I'm gonna go ahead and say it...this is gonna be a clusterf***. 2.5 hours = 150 minutes (I'm guessing that the movie will be around this long after credits and such are taken out). 40 robots over 150 minutes is about 4 min a robot, if there was no story at all involving humans. That likely means it'll be just like the G1 cartoons that the movie fans complain about, meaning the movie will have a bunch thrown in just for the sake of having them there. Basically little to no character development for most. The fight scenes will hopefully not suffer from so much scrap metal moving around...

    A whiny, cowardly, stupid idiot who plots in plain view of the very target he hopes to overthrow? I hope not.

    Agreed. TF: Animated is hands down the best version of Starscream. Sneaky, cunning, ambitious, and dangerous enough to pose a serious threat even when outnumbered.

    "WAAAAAAAAAAH! I Wanna be leader, but that meanie Megatwon won't let me! WAAAAAAAAAH!" *throat vomit*

    That's from a toy box, which, if the previous toyline is any indication, has little to do with the movie plot.

    or what if The Fallen is awakened, and the only way to defeat him is to resurrect Megatron.

    So yeah my wallet did not take the news of 40+ new robot action figures very well. He has begun writing his last will and testament. Please pray for him that most of them are deluxe size. We can only hope for the best. the rest is in hasbros hands.

    Considering that Devastator is apparently comprised of 9 robots all on his own, it isn't that much of a stretch to consider having 40 robots total in it. I love the idea that starscream is going to be a little more like his G1 because his turkeybot mode is hard to humanize, if he is meant to be the new decepticon leader that is.
