    Total WALL-E ripoff, just like him, he likes strong and deadly women (EVE). If he even talks like WALL-E, Pixar will sue... he sure looks like him.

    This information comes from a junior novelization. OF COURSE it's going to be oversimplified.

    If I had to guess, the official novelization will expand on it.. the junior makes it sound like just runs out of gas and decides to quit.

    I'd imagine there's an ugly fight with Scorponok and maybe some others.

    Anyways, there's no mention of the "Insecticons" either.. there's a lot that's outdated.. for all we know the ending is totally different. I seem to recall someone mentioning Simmons coordinating an attack on the Sun Crusher which explodes in Devastator's face.

    I have three words for this Bring It On,I so can't wait for this movie in about a month and
    a week and a half.But going by this its saying there are 10 seekers,well we know 2 of them,
    Starscream and Jetfire,so who are the other 8,I bet that Breakaway is part of the movie
    since he is one too,but who are the other 7?.Maybe they are 2 more Deceps like Skywarp
    and Thundercracker,then the last 5 are the Aerialbots,since we know they are getting
    re-released exclusives.

    Oh and the news about Optimus being one of the original 13 is soooooooooooo cool.And
    how they made him to seem like a youngster.But I just wish Jetfire don't have to die,he
    is so sweet as the SR-71.

    THat actually sound cool...

    It's weird though, that it's almost a month now until the movie airs, and we still don't know who's going to voice characters like Starscream or Sideswipe, Jetfire and the Twins.

    Because we, as a fandom, enjoy spoiling ourselves. :D 

    Well, some do and some don't... just a personal preference I guess. I'm one of those types that just can't resist a good spoiler and, as has been mentioned, given that this is the junior novelization there are probably going to be plenty of differences between this and the actual movie as even the regular novelizations tend to have strong differences with their movie counterparts.

    I notice no mention of Blackout at all, either.

    Must be working from an early draft or a very pared down one, considering all the details we absolutely know to be different at this point.

    Still, the basic outline seems nifty and no, I don't mind spoilers for things at all. In fact, I usually hit themoviespoilers.com before going to see any film to make sure I'll like it.

    Sounds like a decent ride, and it's nice they're leaving it more open in the end, with more Decepticons free and online.

    Starscream's being voiced by Charlie Adler, the guy who voiced him in movie 1 (as well as G1 Silverbolt).

    Jetfire's apparently being voiced by John Turturro.

    and Wall-E is just a miniature "rip-off" of Johnny 5.

    They have no leg to stand on.

    Way too much spoilers, for the first time since any news of ROTF came out, I'm not reading any of this.

    It's a disaster! The Allspark we're after!
    But if it could be repowered by our side...
    Yes! We could create new allies.
    But what about Prime?

    We will take him offline...

    We got Allspark! (Allspark!)
    We got Allspark! (Allspark!)
    We got Allspark! (Allspark!)
    We got Allspark! (Allspark!)
    And you know that we got it - Allspark!
    And you know that we got it - Allspark!

    only thing is, this only seems to have 1 Devastator appearance-i could have sworn they said there were 2. that, and there's no mention of their battle mode things. just something i noticed (though i wouldnt be surprised if they dont show up in the movie)

    :lol 


    As for the spoilers, I only skimmed through to see anything regarding Soundwave, hoping to debunk the rumor that he sacrifices himself to revive Megatron (I didn't read/can't remember anything much outside this, so luckily I haven't been overly "spoiled").
    Fortunately, if this particular novelization is correct, looks like he does survive well after Megatron has been brought back. :rock 
    Now I can stop bringing it up. :lol
