    I can't help but wonder that since AOE we seem to be exploring more of a mythical/fantasy theme in the new set of movies as opposed to the more sci fi oriented feel of the first three movies which I find interesting especially if this set of news turn out to be true or at least some of it. Sort of like how later on in the over all TF brad we start to explore more of the mythical/fantasy elements of the franchise.

    Also in regards of Megatron having a new jet alt mode it makes me wonder if it turns out to be true would it be Earth or Cybertronian in design?

    The more I think about it, the more I actually like this idea. It all but guarantees the return of the Seekers (and, if true, all but guarantees the overloaded dump truck is a Transformer). That's probably one of the biggest potential plot points from ROTF that was never followed up on in DOTM or AOE: the nearly 19,000 years of human history where Transformers were present on Earth and capable of directly or indirectly shaping our culture. Plus, it more or less explains why so many Cybertronian artifacts are here on Earth, namely that the Seekers brought all that stuff with them in their search for the Matrix.

    And if Bay picked up an actual transformers name, people would still complain about how he handled the character

    If he chose a random name from the rest of the franchise, however, people would be complaining about name slaps. I'm pretty sure there was a big debacle over someone bringing up Bay perversions over the 14 year old. And I doubt Bay would do that, considering it's a child in question.

    Hasn't it already been established that Bay gives the TFs stupid names during filming but they use proper TF names (usually) in the actual film.

    As for Merlin...WTF

    Is Megatron going to have new minicons named Morgana and Mordred?

    Well, this does sound exactly like the sort of shit they'd put in these movies.

    I hope those names are wrong though. Wtf!

    So then Arthur, Lancelot and Guinevere will be the renaissance version of NEST? :lol 

    If this is true, this movie is either going to be humorously entertaining in a really cheesy 1980's way, or one hell of a trainwreck.

    indeed, one of the reasons he does this is for keep the real robot name under wraps for the time being.

    I'd say it went back to its own atmosphere. With some explosions on the planet. It definitely wasn't "destroyed"

    I'm sure by the time it's released there will be a few decepticons but maybe they're not as prominent roles if thus is all true.

    There's is no way by reading that we can tell if Prime meets anyone on Cybertron. I'm sure he does tbh or some THINGS anyway. Plus just cuz there are cars of decepticons doesn't mean they will have any real.roles. although I REALLY hope they do have roles.

    knights of the roundtable was history and legend ;)  Merlin ....meh.

    Optimus may wanna help cybertron but that doesn't mean he will make earth his slaves and harvest it's sun. And just because he didn't want to help before doesn't mean he didn't want to rebuild his home planet.

    exactly !

    Yup season 3 I think. Maaaaybe s.2 Such an awesome cartoon still and thst episode is what I thought when I first read this

    Interesting ideas but I MUST wonder the validity of the info. If true..it is certainly stretching to "fix" the movieverse loose ends.

    "the creator", an artifact that revives/changes dead things and Transformers coming back from the dead (Barricade, Megatron returning to his former self).

    My uneducated guess is that the trash truck is the creator, a stand-in "Bayname" name for Alpha Trion. The artifact a mashup of the key to vector sigma and the Cybercalibur from the aligned franchise bible.

    If there is any truth to this at all. Then again I don't know why I'm posting this since I never saw 4 and is really indifferent by now.

    Smokescreen was actually meant to be the bot that got killed, (if reports are true) however Dwayne got held up filming one of the fast and furious films so they decided to cut CJ instead and have Smokey show up later.

    And just because Barricade got a toy in the DOTM line doesn't mean he was meant to be there, we got friggin Jolt in the line for god sake as well as the twins!

    No, that can't possibly be right. Cliffjumper was on all of the promotional material. ALL OF IT. For months. That is not a lighting decision to make where the entire plot of the show changes (because in case you forgot, Smokey had one of those key thingies in him) when Cliffjumper had two figures in First Edition and the regular line already in development and was in the prequel comic, all on account of one guy not being available for voice work.

    That's when you get somebody else to to the voice work. Sure, it wouldn't be The Rock, but given how much the show staff kept saying how much hard work it was to even make the show in the first place, you are suggesting they remade the entire first portion of the episode using a model that very well may not have existed for Smokesreen.

    Seriously, I would love to see these reports. Because surely if they existed you can cite them, right?

    Yeah, almost as if they were planned to be in the film to but were cut because the Volt really wasn't doing well for Chevy, so they just didn't have him in the film, and then due to controversy from ROTF Bay inevitably pulled the twins from the film as well even though somebody did find a split-second of their alt. modes in the film where the cut hadn't been as precise as thought on the cutting room floor.

    Well..... okay, maybe. Guess we'll have to see if Bay and Co. confirm any of this.

    Merlin huh?

    I see they are adapting A Decepticon Raider in King Arthur's Court from season 2?

    Should have done War Dawn! (Best episode ever!)
