So given the sheer amount of TV spots AoE is turning out to us and the present day of cinema blockbusters, here goes .... In my best Optimus Prime voice, "I have a bad feeling about this." Not the movie itself, but for a potentially brilliant storyline which may have been mapped out for the new trilogy as opposed to just green-lighting a sequel based on the success of the previous film ... and a possible decent spoiler-free advertising campaign as well! Anyway, bear with me folks, this took a lot of typing on a dodgy keypad, thank you .... Is it just me, or does there seem to be an awful lot of Autobots being revealed and a comparatively smaller number of Decepticons/bad guys receiving 'TV Spot footage?' My point being, is that in this time of cinematic showcases being full of twists and turns, I honestly think that there is still lots of TF goodness to come. For example: - Grimlock is massive, we've still to see his robot mode yet he is still big enough for Prime to barely straddle his neck. The same could be said for the rest of the Dinobots, Slag looks second only to Prime in terms of size. And Strafe/Swoop looks like he can carry Bumblebee ... If so, surely this calls for even bigger Cons somewhere down the line ... Bruticus, Predaking, Menasor .. even a really small Trypticon, something to give them a decent fight? - The 'other' truck is Galvatron, yet the footage has shown very little of the once-awesome Megatron ... thats even if they acknowledge the connection, I think he is going to be a major player in this new trilogy no? Some Megatron flashbacks to remind him, some vague references spanning G1, Armada etc and general awesomene-ness etc - Lockdown is a bounty hunter, and the Payoff trailer's emphasis on Optimus', "Who sent you?"... Does he have ties to either side? Or was the line put in specifically for the trailer (ie out of context)? Either way, there has to be more to Lockdown. - Drift .... I'm still not convinced about his 'reformed Decepticon' bio, we've already seen Jetfire thank you Michael - The sheer numbers difference! Until now (based on the trailers/TV spots), this is the greatest amount of Autobots in the movie-verse we've seen compared to a much smaller contingent of Decepticons than before. I know there are Vehicons and what looks like generic Con troops, but see my earlier point about Grimlock. - Ratchet .... if what's been shown so far is any indicator, the medic is set to meet a rather gruesome end, and I think there will be even more Autobot casualties, which leads me to ...... - The title itself, Age of Extinction, the word 'Age' implies a lengthy period of time and I really can't imagine Optimus, Bumblebee etc AND the Dinobots losing to Lockdown and some human-made Transformers during the course of one film, again there is so much more we haven't seen yet IMO. Maybe I'm thinking too much on this. However I just feel that based on what we've seen so far I'm really hoping AoE has saved the best parts for the film itself; a lot of twists and turns leading into films 5 & 6 as part of one big story arc. Here's to ye all!
