    Couldn't you put a "SPOILER ALERT"??????? Goddamnit!

    Yay, pretenders again.

    I'm just starting to wonder if any of this is disinformation. I mean, Devastator, Pretenders, Arcee, possibly the Fallen, all in the same movie? Not to mention the 'bots from the first one, and any new ones they debut? That's going to be one fast-paced flick.

    It's humorous how so many people complain about all of these nods to the fandom.... combiners, gestalts, pretenders, etc. People say "This will be too much for the casual viewer".

    Maybe so, but isn't that what we (the fans) want? It just lets me know that the filmmakers care more about its fanbase than we give them credit for.

    Interesting news...Ill probably just sit back and wait for whatever the movie comes up with, I like suprises. Wasn't there something about Bay leaking out false info though on purpose? Or is that just BS...

    I'm not complaining. Simply stating what I believe. Heck, I'm treating most of this as rumors anyway.

    And personally, I can see the filmakers giving little nods to the fan community, but I don't see them going out of their way to do so.

    I'm pretty sure the tfwInsider stuff we've heard is true. I agree it seems a little crowded (don't forget Jetfire and combining with Prime, Soundwave, Ravage, etc. etc.) but I think they'll use a mix of 'one-shot'/cameo type appearances and characters that they actually make central to the movie. I wouldn't be surprised if they just pull the Constructicons in for one or two battle scenes but don't otherwise use them in the movie at all. Also, I'm not so sure Megatron's actually going to have much of a role in the second movie (or perhaps none at all until maybe the end?).

    Bumblebee did it to her when she and Sam were inside his vehicle mode.

    Seriously... most of these nods are probably more thanks to Hasbro than anyone else. It's all about the toy sales, and gimmicks are good for that.

    And you're right... best not to put TOO much stock in these things until we get a more official confirmation.

    So people keep mentioning Devastator...

    That was the name of the tank in the first movie. I really don't think they'll re-assign the name to a combined form of Decepticons.

    His name was Brawl. He just has delusions of grandeur when referring to himself. :)

    Wow. I so wish I did not know that; it would have actually been a surprise in the fucking movie... Is there some way I can filter spoiler movie news out of the news on the main page?

    edit: found the none spoiler tfw2005 link. nvm...lame.


    But still... Wouldn't it have been easier to just not put spoilers on the main page, and keep the spoilers in the threads within the message board? The first movie didn't surprise me at all, and I was even TRYING to avoid spoilers the whole time... It's just impossible. I swore for the sake of interest that for TF2 I wouldn't even go into the movie forum, not often anyways...... yet still... spoilers abound. Might be time to switch to a more spoiler sensitive news site.... anybody got any good ones off hand cause I don't like the way it was handled here... kind of stupid.

    well a character being in the movie isn't really a spoiler. what the character does in the movie is.

    I mean, the police car being a Decepticon wasn't really a spoiler in the lead up to the first movie was it? that was widely known. how is this Alice any different to when we first heard of Barricade?

    Gee, you found spoilers in a movie forum? What a surprise!

    Why is everybody having such a hard time with the no-movie-spoiler news page? I swear, this is THE most whiny and bitchy fandom I've ever been a part of.

    Bay did say that this time around we were going to see more of the transformers "species". I like it. Bring it on.

    that picture is not of her, I dont think. that actually matches the description if ravage, discussed by roberto. apparantley, he will have "a raw beast mode, with dreadlocks and a bird like beak." so I'm going out on a limb and guessing that is ravage.

    For a Decepticon who thought his name was Devastator, he hardly lived up to that name.
    He did get killed by Bumblebee after all. Haha!

    Besides, calling Brawl 'Devastator' was a mistake on Bays part.

    Hopefully we'll be seeing the real Devastator in action for the new movie.

    Yeah, I think this could be said for just about anything. If it's done well (in your opinion) that it could be awesome (in your opinion). the question is what will it take for a pretender to be done well in somebody's opinion.... An oversized bulky plasticy human that splits in two right down the middle? A realistic human with scifi cybernetic enhancements?

    I personally am down with Bay bringing in more TYPES of TFs, combiners, pretenders, etc... it's a nice nod to the G1 geeks (like me) and might help sell toys. I'm hoping for a headmaster or targetmaster in this or #3... don't have to get into the whole nebulon thing, just a smaller TF partnered with a regular sized one. Then kill one of them off and delve into the tragedy for the surviving partner going on solo...
