    On a side note, isn't the image for this story on the front page of Alex Kurtzman, not Roberto Orci? Or do I have them mixed up?

    Yay for vague yet slighty addictive nearly confirmed cloak-n-dagger style rumors! Makes me nervous that we're going to "love" something so spectacular that it wasn't even in the script to start with.

    2 lines of dialogue, and 1 transmission (I think).

    A more G1-like Starscream? Crap! Crap! And double crap! Movie Starscream was doing well the way he was and now this. I just hope the character doesn't end up being a clusterf***.

    40 bots. I hope it does not turn out to be like 15 indentical Decepticon drones with the main Autobot team, main Decepticon team and the Fallen. It needs to be 40 individual characters and different renders. But I am ok if they have characters like Starscream and Thundercracker or Bumblebee and Cliffjumpers.

    So what do people have AGAINST cannon fodder characters, in other words "clones" that are variations on existing models? Eg Skywarp, Thundercracker, etc...

    I'd be in favor of that.

    Yeah i'm wondering if the reason Starscream got those tattoos was so they'd have an easy way to distinguish him from other F22 Raptor clones (Skywarp. TCracker, Ramjet?) I hope so, and that Starscream leads an aerial raid bombing the F^&k out of the Autobots.

    Also, the G1 Starscream stuff has me kinda like :peoples:  Honestly, I wouldn't mind some of the aspects making it in (backstabber, plotter, condescending jerk), but I really like the spin Mowry has given him... And honestly, to me, that feels like what Starscream always should have been. A deadly, over-confident, yet very efficient warrior, who does things by any means necessary. I hope they don't sacrifice character for g1 fanwank. To me, the g1 cartoons always f'd most of the Decepticon characters up. Bumbling Megs, Starscream turned into a 'plot device', Shockwave totally ineffective... sigh. I hope they stick to the less 'comedic' spin on the Decepticons. The 'realism' was what appealed to me, and I don't want comedy bots running all over the place.

    I know I should be happy, but I think I'm more worried.

    "More G1" doesn't mean he'll be EXACTLY like G1 like some of you are reacting towards :rolleyes:  It just means he'll be showing the good aspects of his G1 self, the ones which we like, such as his sarcasm, ego, opportunistic approach etc.

    The guy had two lines. There was no way to tell WHAT kind of character he was.

    Actually, I'm thinking we're going to get a scene with the Fallen *on fire*.
    It probably won't be a natural ability but he'll probably be in flames for a moment or two
    for whatever reason. I think that's the scene Bay's adding.

    -SS (assuming, of course, that such a scene didn't already exist)

    Remember, the movies are all about the human interaction with the autobots, and the Decepticons are little more than standard movie monsters. That's why there is zero character development, and they look totally different (and scarier). I believe the Decepticons in TF2 will be more like the Klingons from Star Trek, in that they will show a scene or two of interaction to "build character" but really doesn't do much to build any connection (especially since Michael Bay is completely unable to build a rapport between his movie characters in ANY Bay film).

    Forty bots make this really interesting.
