    Dude.

    It's a movie about giant robot aliens.

    How realistic do you want it to be?

    that's a total cop out comment

    So why even go see the movie why would you even care to respond

    That's exactly what people said about comic book movies like batman

    Transformers are obviously more than a toy as their appeal is huge and lasted 20+ years so why not hold the first big budget film to a higher standard

    It's friggin rediculous not to

    I mean come on does any one here want this movie to be boring and prefictable

    Are you actually asking for visible seams in vehicle mode, a la Universe Ironhide? You must have been really disappointed by...well, pretty much every incarnation of TF fiction ever, because I can't remember a single comic or show that's ever displayed visible panel lines on alt-modes. Probably because it would look godawful.

    That's mostly because realistic space isn't very dramatic. A lot of things in reality aren't very dramatic.

    Now art~

    Wow, I can't believe how full of shit you are! Seriously? Think it's easy to create transforming robots in a real movie (not a cartoon)? Unless you come from the future where transforming robots are normal in your average day life, I think the creators did a pretty damn good job on the movie transformations, if only for the fact that we don't have that kind of technology and they managed to make it at least movie-believable.

    You and your cat can shove your sub-intelligence right where the Richard Gere doesn't shine, mister.

    Even if you disagree with someone's post, there is no need to take it on a personal level. We would not want the moderators to lock the thread. If you disagree with the argument, attack the core argument, not the one making it. There is no need to go this far in berating the individual.
    The movie line is just another Universe in the Transformers world. Even though the Movie line pays some homage to other lines like G1, they are in no ways bound by it. It is the job of the director and his crew to create an entirely new universe that can appeal to a general audience in the contemporary world. Personally, the movie line is my favorite (you can see my colleciton as proof). There are certain reasons why people like the movie line, such as having characters that do not look like cartoons, alt modes based on actual real-life vehicles that we can relate to and size, and since they look life-like, they can be really be scary monsters (especially Decepticons). Since the movie is a seperate universe in itself, it never has and never will affect the other toy lines. You can completely avoid the movie and still like other Transformers lines, or you can like the movie line in addition to the others. I do not think that it is that difficult to choose either one. If the presence of the movie and the corresponding toys are causing you feel psychological pain, there is nothing anyone can do about it because it is already here. People have to learn to GET OVER IT.

    Oops, sorry... forgot to add something for the sensitive ones...

    [/sarcasm]

    Apologies for not liking your silly looking Batman... but I was brought up on TAS... what'd you expect?

    Seriously, I find it hi-f*cking-larious that I get ragged on for that, yet being told "Please stop saying dumb things. One has nothing to do with the other." doesn't seem to bother anyone.

    The toy looks pretty cool. However, we should reserve judgement until we see the final product. Without having knowing what the official robot mode looks like, it is difficult to say how large and proportional it is compared to other toys. We do not even know what am ROTF Voyager class box looks like.

    Looking at the DVD cases behind the toy, I assume it is a Voyager Class. And I think it won't have a separate bot mode. All the 7 toys won't have bot modes. I can imagine this at the movie. We won't see bot modes from every constructicon. They transform just to combine to form Devastator (the name probably will change, because Brawl was known as Devastator in the 1st movie)... It's my oppinion...

    well they made all the mass shifting that went around in G1 helped out a lot. I mean all the Constructicons formed while inside Astrotrain :p 

    Anyways, I can't wait to see more Constructicons for sure

    I think its an Terex O&K RH400

    The EX8000 isn't in the list of vehicles from TWF Insider, who's been quite right on alot of spoilers.

    O&K/Terex RH400 - Hydrolic Mining Excavator - (red)
    Caterpillar 992G - Wheel Loader - (yellow)
    Caterpillar 773B - Dump Truck - (green)
    Mack Cement Mixer - (silver/white)
    Komatsu HD465-7 - Articulated Dump Truck - (red)
    Kobelco CK2500 - Truss Crane - (yellow)
    Caterpillar D9L - Bulldozer - (beige)

    Edit: I believe the RH400 is also the world's largest hydraulic excavater
