    Mr. Orci, I can't help but notice you've put "Maximal" under your name. Are you a big Beast Wars fan? And if so, is it possible you may bring one or two Beast Wars characters into the movie universe? If it's alright, can I make a suggestion of Cheetor? :D

    1 - God Bless Bernie Mac. He was not returning to the sequel.

    2 - I think he may have just enough armament to get through most things.

    This concept art appears to imply it is Ravage who is a truck, no?

    1.) He knows how skilled Megatron is in defending against swords. They've fought many times.

    2.) Certainly, not every human will be on their side.

    3.) Optimus hasn't changed a bit!

    I've been bad at keeping up with our marketing plan on this one. Don't know the answers, actually.

    1.) The input he was given in general was to make sure the score was more melodic and classic in nature, rather than being too electronic, which could be a temptation when dealing with robots.

    2.) No, but in a way, the Transformers vs GI Joe series inspired the first movie -- hence the heavy soldier presence. In a way, that is what we did.

    3.) Hmm... Only one Spock.

    Wow, so many questions on here, and all really good ones. Thanks for taking the time to visit the site and openly speak about the movie! I loved the first film, and am sure the 2nd will be even greater :) 
    I think the hologram idea of Cullen is a awesome idea, Im sure he would love that too.
    Most of my questions have been answered, so I basically just wanted to pop in and say hi and great work!
    Also, 2.) Certainly, not every human will be on their side. Interesting...

    Hi Bob,

    With the Chevy bow tie on "Soundwaves" groin it looks as though someone is implying he is the truck. Live long and prosper.

    Hello Bob,
    Well the was a a pic of the new megatron a little while ago, he was a tank.
    Does Megatron Return? Or is it, Galvatron?
    Also will we see some old faces in the new movies, Thundercracker,Skywarp, Ramjet, Dirge nd Ramjet?

    Mr. Orci -

    Do (did) you take into account how members of the audience who aren't that familiar with Transformers would accept/react to the new concepts introduced in the sequel?

    Mr. Orci,

    First, I'd like to thank you for continuing to communicate with the Transformers community for so long--we hope for many more :) 

    Now a statement and questions:

    I've read here that Soundwave is going to be a satellite and then some sort of truck as the movie progresses? Why a truck; what was the deciding factor for this altmode?

    I tend to think an AWAK would have been a better choice, as it too can be used for communication/spying.

    Thanks for answering a bunch of new questions, Mr. Orci. Without that, this thread would be pointless!

    Cheers.
