    If I look at the head of The Fallen in the comic, it almost eerily resembles the head of Soundwave. This makes sense if you consider how the original Decepticon logo is based on the shapes observed in the head of Soundwave, and how The Fallen could represent the first "true" Decepticon after Unicron.

    Then again, "The Fallen" could have symbolic meaning. For example, if we tie in the common other movieverse of Starwars, Darth Vader also represents a "fallen" character resembling the Lucifer-story. Therefore, maybe Jetfire was originally an Autobot who "fell" to become a Decepticon. His revenge might thus be his true self resurfacing and for him to become an Autobot again once more. The walking stick rumor could therefore be an indication how his character is "tainted". But this is pure speculation of course based on little or no evidence. Moreover, Michael Bay is not known for his symbolic work. ;-)

    Simon Furman and IDW seem to think otherwise.

    I really hope Bay isn't doing that stupid thing that they did with Sideways in Armada. That Sideways was actually Unicron, just a new body he made for himself. Of all the mythos he could pull from, he picks the weirdest stuff!

    Sidesways is either some transformer that he enforced his will upon or is merely an extension of himself. Either way, Sideways was Unicron's means of directly manipulating lesser beings into unwittingly following his designs.

    wasn't soundwave at some point meant to be some kind of high priest, which would explain why he's made his face be close in design to the fallen / this unknown big new character, ie. the decepticon symbol?

    Hmm... doubt it. But not far off it. Jetfire may be about as tall as Devastator's Chest at least.

    I agree, ... and what if they somehow worked in the Fallen's flames/fire during the combination tranformation with Prime!!! (Movie Prime already has flames! ;)  oh, 2006 flashback!)

    But maybe when they combine jetfiire (JET FIRE) blows up in flames like the Fallen. Sound good?
