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?

Man, that was quick: TakaraTomy has published photos of their Movie The Best offerings for March 2018 as well! March will see releases of MB-16 Jetfire, MB-17 Optimus Prime Revenge Version, MB-18 Warhammer Bumblebee, MB-19 Hound, and MB-20 Nemesis Prime. Keep reading for more details!
Via Twitter, TakaraTomy has released a teaser image showing off the Movie The Best releases we learned about earlier this week. Not just confirming the listings we saw, this answers some questions about the toys that will be put to use. As it turns out, a reasonable quantity of The Last Knight toys are figuring in to the 2018 lineup including Leader Megatron, Hound, Bumblebee, and the current Optimus mold in the Nemesis Prime role. You can check out the full size image previewing the whole assortment just below in the full post!
Having taken place this week, the Christmas Toy Fair expo in Japan has afforded us a first look at Movie The Best Jetfire, which was initially revealed to us through retailer listings just days ago. From what little coverage we could find of the Transformers displays, it didn't seem like very much new was on hand. A clear look at Jetfire was most notable among other movie products we've seen many times already. An MP Bumblebee was displayed as well to promote the upcoming reissue in February. Sadly none of the newly listed Legends toys seemed to be shown during this event. Keep reading to see the photos!
Celebrate 10 years of live action Transformers movies with the next 9 figures in the "Movie Best" lineup! The new figures include MB-12 Jazz, MB-13 Bonecrusher, MB-14 Megatron, MB-15 Lockdown, MB-16 Jetfire, MB-17 Optimus Prime (Revenge Ver.), MB-18 War Hammer Bumblebee, MB-19 Hound, and MB-20 Nemesis Prime. Each fully transformable figure features premium deco and includes one or more accessories.
The new release of 2007's Leader Class movie Optimus Prime under the Transformers Tribute subline is now available for purchase in the US via Amazon. Like the Orion/Optimus Evolution 2 pack before it, this is apparently an Amazon exclusive. But, unlike the very unexpectedly reasonable price point of the 2 pack, Leader Optimus is currently listed at $79.99. But of course that does mean it qualifies for free shipping whether or not you're an Amazon Prime member. Is the very first movie Optimus with a fancy updated deco worth that to you? If so, hit the link in the full post below, and keep reading for a set of new stock photos of the toy.
