Empire Shines More Light On Revenge of the Fallen Twins & Other Characters
bwbm - Sunday, May 03, 2009


Empire Online has published an article on their website that provides some insights from cast and Director Michael Bay. The article is a slideshow of the recent release of the full Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen trailer with an snippet from a cast member or Mr. Bay, and the details reveal some spoilerish details about the plot and characters (robots included) that we never heard before.

Here's something you didn't see coming: the Twins combine. Yes, you read that right. The Twins Skids and Mudflap combine, according to the Empire article.

Although the Chevrolet Beat and Trax concept vehicles were both just gasoline-burning vehicles, the vehicles are hybrids in the film. This is similar to the James Bond film "Quantum of Solace," which featured Ford Edge vehicles styled to look like Fuel Cell Hybrids, which don't actually exist.

The article also reveals that the Autobots and Decepticons will indeed join forces to fight The Fallen. "The Fallen proves so powerful that Megatron must swallow his hate and join the Autobots against him," the article reveals.

Agent Simmons (John Turturro) now works at his mom's deli, which makes the "don't tell my mother" bit a more clear. "But he's never given up his dream. He knows what's going on, though nobody believes him," Turturro says.

The article also reveals that Mr. Turturro voices Jetfire. Mr. Bay says Jetfire is "running out of Energon, which keeps him going. When he falls down he creaks and he doesn't transform well - it's like arthritis."

Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura reveals that the hieroglyphs are actually images of Transformers. He also says that "[t]he movie actually opens before the pyramids were built." He continues, "We tie the Transformers into the beginnings of civilisation."

Empire hints that Optimus Prime may not survive the ass-kicking we've seen him get so far in the footage from Revenge. The online edition of the magazine reports that the Peterbilt vehicle was not seen during the Cairo, Egypt shoot.

The filmmaking process to allow the actors to interact with the robots that will be put in later has gotten better and has allowed for more hands-on interaction. "They put wires on your face and when a robot grabs your face, they pull it," says Shia LaBeouf.

Finally, Mr. Bay admits the ending of Transformers was lame. But this time, he promises it'll get better. "You'll never have seen anything like it before." Thanks to "BLACKOUT34" for the catch!

Adding to my previous post... I want to say that the artifact that Sam picks up has to either do with The Fallen (piece of armor maybe?) or is part of Ravage's tail.

Nope, in the forest scene, Sam is wearing a dark long sleeve shirt. When he picks up that object, he is wearing a white shirt. You can see him wearing that white shirt in the scenes that take place in Egypt, some scenes he is wearing a jacket over it.

I wonder what the claw-like object sam picks up is.. it looks as if he's in the same forested area where prime's fighting blackout.. movie matrix perhaps?

To each their own...I did a revised version where Ravages head was up top, like Cybertron DCM, and it looked much better...Not so Voltron / Jungle Fury...

Wont that be a touching moment when Scorponok meets with his beloved revived master?

Following their Superior Optimus Prime statues what melds aspects of the Generation 1 and Movie characters. Prime 1 Studio bring us Superior Megatron. The teaser image doesn't give up a whole lot, with a look at what may be his chest plate, but we'll be seeing more of this guy soon enough.
Following the earlier reveal, we have some new images and a story of the Transformers Superior Optimus Prime from Prime 1 Studio that is a Generation 1 and Movie Mash-up bust statue. The Superior one is said to part of the Transformers: Age of Time universe. It was designed by Josh Izzi who has sculpted statues for the other Premium Masterline Transformers statues before. Read on to see the details and new looks at Prime's face and the bust for more info.
As it turns out, several days ago Michael Bay stopped to have a quick chat with MTV in a video clip available on MTV's Facebook page. The questions focused mostly on next year's Bumblebee spinoff movie, with a bit of the conceptual angle of it revealed. There was also the ever-present question of whether Bay was truly leaving the franchise behind now. Whether he is or not (his response was decidedly non-committal) he did say he wants to direct one of the later spinoff movies, so he's likely to be back in some capacity or another no matter what. Keep reading to see more.
Prime 1 Studio is proud to present MMTFM-14: Shockwave from The Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Shockwave was left to watch Cybertron by Megatron long ago, arriving on Earth to hunt for the AllSpark shortly after Megatron. A peerless scientist with deadly efficiency and a cold devotion to logic, he is one of the very few who could rival Megatron. Shockwave is ready and willing to destroy the Autobots with his arm-mounted AstroMag Cannon.
Director Michael Bay has appeared in a quick video clip on the official Weibo account for the Transformers movie series, in which he's putting it to the fans in China to help decide on the city in which a tenth anniversary event will be held. The voting period runs the first two weeks of this month, and it does not seem to be specified when the event itself will be held, as that will likely depend on specifics to be worked out with the chosen city. We've embedded the message below, which seems to be viewable even without a Weibo account. Check it out now!
